    what if the animated story continued in the form of DVD movies? the same way futurama and batman TAS did?
    i could deal with that, plus if we got four movies that would be a complete "season" bringing us to about 52 episodes
    thoughts?

    I'd be all over them! I can't get enough of this show. I'm so happy I was talked into purchasing these past two season. I wasn't going to give this show a shot, as I hated the Teen Titans look, but it has since grown on me, thanks to the writing and great characters :D 

    I'm sad to hear this show is coming to an end :(  The last Transformer show I cared about was Beast Wars. I hope whatever follows is as good, but if not, I hope Hasbro has it in them to please fans and new comers with quarterly/yearly movies of Animated :)

    I would buy them for sure. Trouble is IF there is a new show to replace TFA, I can`t see Hasbro doing it. As a rule 2 toon universes have never existed at one time (temporal toon physics :lol ).

    Not possible. Cartoon Network is the only one who could make them, and Hasbro and them are severing all ties.

    Would be cheaper and easier to do season four as a comic.

    Where is this info given?

    I could've sworn that Marty at least hinted that there was "talk" of continuing TFA in a periodic DVD format. Could be talks fizzled.

    But still, seems a complete waste to can TFA completely. Yet shows like Ben10 not only get 4 full seasons but a sequel-show as well. And there's a lot less merchandising of Ben10 than TFA. I know my local stores tend to stuff sit on the shelves for B10 longer than TFA w/ a slower restock.

    Why would Cartoon Network be an issue with direct to DVD releases? I don't see Cartoon Network's name anywhere on my DVDs, just Hasbro and Paramount...

    Cause the movie was released by Paramount/Dreamworks, but Animated is released by CN. Check out the packaging on not only the DVD's, but the figs.

    Despite all evidence pointing to the inevitable demise of Animated, I hope that somehow the two sides can iron it out and get something new released. Someday.

    I just checked all three of my DVDs and he's right, the Cartoon Network logo is nowhere to be seen. Plus, when I needed a replacement for my Season One, I had to go to Paramount to get it.

    Now, this doesn't mean that just anyone CAN do a new series with the same character designs, etc, but personally, I would be all over direct-to-video movies, as long as the creative team was also intact.

    I would like this. I would watch this. I would buy this.

    Though I have no idea if this would happen. Wasn't it fan response that kept Futurama alive, even if in DVD movie form? Is the TFA fanbase actually big enough to make this happen? I am thinking no. Sadly.

    Yup. CN makes the show, or rather, their creative team. You can't make the cartoon without the people who make it. CN has rights over the show and it's development, too.

    The figure packaging doesn't have the CN logo on them either.

    Huh, maybe they don't in the UK. Since I'm not at home I can't check, but I'm almost certain that they are on all the figs I've purchased...which is quite a few in the last month or so.

    EDIT: Checked. The CN logos are on all the cardbacks/boxes for every fig I've purchased.

    Although arguments as to why the continuation of Animated is tenuous at best have been made, if it were to continue this is probably the most likely form it would occur in I think.

    No, I was referring to the Animated DVDs, Cartoon Networks name appears no where on the cover/discs themselves. If they're so connected to the project, why isn't there name right there next to Hasbros?

    I always thought their name appeared in the credits only because they were the one's who responsible for the TV distribution of the product. Paramount is responsible for the DVDs distribution, so it is no wonder their names there.

    I've seen Cartoon Network's name and logo on toy products which talk about the shows television syndication. If they were so entrenched in the property, why isn't Cartoon Network's name everywhere Hasbro's name is?

    This is what it says on the Animated DVDs: "HASBRO and its logo, TRANSFORMERS and all related characters are tradermarks of Hasbro and are used with permission. (copyright mark) 2009 Hasbro. All Rights Reserved. TM. (registered mark) & Copyright (copyright mark) 2009 by Paramount Pictures. All Rights Reserved."

    Again, no Cartoon Network anywhere.
