    TF: Prime preview line cancelled in the US. Voyagers make it to the RID line, while the superior-to-RID Cliffjumper becomes this year's Windcharger.

    At the Botcon toy panel, Hasbro says it has no plans to release the Vortex remold of Tomahawk. Neither are there plans to release Classics Rumble and Frenzy.

    At the end of the year, Hasbro announces TF: Prime will enter its final season immediately after the announcement of Bayformers 4: The Rise of Heinrad. Bay apologists everywhere damn TF: Prime as inferior because it made Hasbro less money, followed by "OMG OMG OMG", image macros, and the mass-replacement of cum-soaked monitors.

    Caving to the fans' requests that "they do it right", Hasbro and Takara decide to focus all available resources on creating a 1:1 scale G1 Metroplex for mass retail, only to file for bankruptcy the next day.

    Sure I'll play. We don't get deluxe Soundwave, Leadfoot, or Q over here, and don't get HA Soundwave. But no fear, they all see retail at Marshalls in 2013.

    Haha, 6 days in this is way too pessimistic for me, but I'll play along.

    Due to a major cock-up, the Prime line gets axed and we only get Movie Trilogy toys for 12 months

    TF: Prime get's the axe due to lower than expected sales figures and ends like Animated with questions unanswered that are key to certain important plots. of the story.

    The HUB closes down and programming is scattered to other networks.

    Slowly one by one, Hasbro announces certain Transformer size classes which have to be discontinued due to low sales starting with Leader class until we are left with nothing but Cyberverse/Legends class Transformers at double than normal price.

    Interest in Transformers starts declining rapidly from general public.

    Botcon exclusives turn out to be extremely disappointing, resulting in almost nobody buying the sets, resulting in a lot of unsold stock.

    Botcon 2013 location is announced but due to the location, almost nobody wishes to visit.

    Something happens causing Michael Bay to sue Hasbro. He wins and is awarded millions upon millions of payouts.

    Hasbro files for bankruptcy, which Takara takes as an opportunity to buy out Hasbro and all of their current licenses. This backfires on Takara, causing them to also file for bankruptcy and eventual close down. All current licenses are picked up by other companies such as Bandai, Mattel and etc.

    Transformers license is not renewed and all unsold stock in stores is either eventually bought or just sits on shelves collecting dust.

    Due to no new Transformers products, interest dwindles and is eventually forgotten altogether.


    I think I said enough.

    A literally perfect toy is released by Hasbro in 2012 that no one is able to find fault with. Given no options for complaint, some start breaking out electron microscopes in an effort to find flaws on a subatomic level, while others claim that the identical version released by Takara Tomy in Japan is obviously superior.

    I am unable to find Que, Soundwave and Leadfoot before March.

    LEGO sues Hasbro for KRE-O and wins, and Hasbro goes bankrupt and out of business.

    Fall of Cybertron is cancelled due to High Moon mistaking "Give us PC!" for "Go away and never make TF games again."
