    As pointed out by Dave n' Andy, the rush of news we get before and after a movie has ended. The rest of '09 will likely be pretty dry when it comes to news. Here's how I'm handling it.

    1. Take a Hiatus from Transformers: Focus on other things like work or school.
    2. Focus more on other toylines: Marvel Select, Marvel Legends, DC Universe, G.I. Joe just to name a few
    3. Look at other news: You're going to say there's nothing to talk about even when Disney buys Marvel. Really?

    That's how I'm handling it. How about you?

    Star Wars. Focus on Star Wars and the Clone Wars series.

    Oh, and school junk. Gotta do good on that.

    Ooooh, and football. Gotta watch football.

    I got a lot of stuff to keep me busy.

    Doubtful I'll take a hiatus from Transformers. But I do have lots of things to keep me occupied until we get news regarding a new Transformers series or anything concerning Transformers #3 in general.

    When its TF movie line time i always focus on other toy lines except for a deluxe/fab here or there :p  only tf line i'm interested in atm is classics and since thats on hiatus til who knows when meh.

    Of course ML ain't got much going for it atm either, and DCU only has some good figures here and there and ye can't find DCU pretty much to begin with, and then Joe's stuck on the movie stuff(i want a damned 25th ann version of Snake Eyes V4!)

    Noticed you had a black and white Modular Armor helmet as you're avatar. Are you an Iron Man fan?

    I would think work and/or school should always be a focus, while Transformers and any other hobbies are secondary.

    Of coarse. What I was trying to say was focus even more on your main objectives.

    The lack of movie news means that I am going to be MORE into Transformers than anything else. Ive got some Alternators and Masterpiece stuff I really need to catch up on.

    There's stuff that came before it that I need to catch up on. My girlfriend and daughter both deserve my spare time left over after work. News or no news, I make sure it happens.

    As time has gone on, I almost don't care about collecting and news anymore. So how I deal with lack of news is live my life.
