    So many questions unanswered. So many toys yet to be released. So many toys being cancelled. How will they get outta this? They can't just say we can't get them. Only TFC will tell. Post your thoughts::eek:

    In order of increasing likeliness:

    * Tv/direct-to-DVD movie
    * IDW comic miniseries
    * Animated run in TFCC newsletter comic
    * Animated comic with Botcon box set.
    * Nothing at all
    * Fanfiction

    Oh yeah, I agree with ya on that! Fanfiction is the only thing that will keep the series alive... Well... one of the things that will... Fanfiction is the ultimate love around these parts. XD

    Uhh, pretty sure that for media, they are just going to drop it. It happens all the time. I can see an Animated BotCon set in the future, so we could get a comic with that. As for the toys, some could still be released, but as for the ones that have completely new molds, they will come out one way or the other. Maybe not now, but in a couple years, under another label.

    And Fanfiction, of course.

    well if the retailers dont want to sell the animated stuff and desire only the movie stuff its not their fault either. Business is as business does.

    This is the most important question to ask at Botcon in regards to Animated: Does CN retain any rights to TF: Animated?

    If CN retains any ownership rights, and Hasbro has to pay them any license fees for new products, then Hasbro won't release anything. Comic, direct-to-dvd, new toys, nothing. If Botcon has to pay a fee to use the designs, we won't see any Botcon love, either.

    If you are going to Botcon, please ask that question.

    They can because...they can.

    It still won't stop the inevitable "Being bit in the butt for their greed" but they still can.
