IF Classics are released soon, will Cybertron end early?

    Shut this down if already discussed:

    With all the images we've seen recently of the Classics toys, it's possible, but not guaranteed by any means, that these will be released within the next couple of months.

    That's cool and all, but what does this mean for Cybertron?

    It seems like the Cybertron toys are being released in rapid-fire fashion (everywhere but here, evidently), and that the series could very well be wrapped up within the next couple of months. What bugs me about this is the potential number of Cybertron toys that will be near impossible to find, as is common with toys released at the end of a series.

    Personally, I hope Cybertron runs through the end of the year, but I'm getting a little concerned.

    Thoughts?

    From what I can gather, Classics will be released along side Cybertron toys. Needless to say, I wouldn't worry about finding the last few Cybertron repaints.

    There arent that many Cybertron figures left. As far as I know there is 1 voyager wave and 1 or 2 scout waves left and that's it. The Unicron wave is out and Primus is out. Menasor is also out. Not too much left.

    Classics and Cybertron will run concurrently through the end of the year. And the newest Scout wave and BWX wave are being spotted in Minnesota, no pics with receipt yet.

    Classics aren't a huge line either,

    They will be far from replacing the 20 snarls, 40 mupflaps and 70 starcreams still available.
    ***availability varies depending on store.

    At the moment, Cybertron is right on track, and we're getting a new wave of each class showing up roughly every two months as far as first sightings go. We have a fair bit of stuff either hinted at or quite confirmed for the future, including at least two more waves of Voyagers, another wave of Leaders, At least a couple more basic and deluxe waves, and probably an Ultra or two.

    Looks like Classics will run alongside Cybertron for a bit before it's on it's own. I expect at least 3-5 waves of that goodness.

    I'd imagine with the movie coming out, this is just the tip of the iceberg on getting bombarded with TF stuff.

    Classics is the new "Universe", except this time it gets all the new molds, and mainline Cybertron is mostly repaints.

    And our wallets are the Titanic.

    Varying in size and fullness, of course.

    I'm terribly frightened. :drunk

    Cybertron might as well be gone around here. The shelves are a gettin bare and they're not restocking.
