What do or will the Younger fans want ? Once the people now in the 30 or 40's filter through age, loose interest, give in to life pressures over the fandom or eventually start to die off what will the fandom and indeed the toyline become in the next 25 years ? Will Transformers last another 25 years in some form as a toyline or a fandom ? And will it always be obsessed with G1 derivatives as the only starting point for future work ? Will loosing the first generation of fans or gaining a new generation of Hasbro or Takara designers who grew up on Beast Wars or AEC or never had any contact with the brand at all from the 80's make a difference. Has it already made a difference - have we already passed that point - has Tomy taking over Takara changed anything. How does where we are now differ from say where the fandom was in the 80's or the 90's or the 00's ? What will the younger fans want to see when they carry the trorch and will it be so different from the desires of those in their 30 or 40's in the next few immediate years and then further into the future?
