    No, there wont be any more classics. In fact, after the movie toys are done, Hasbro is putting all their remaining stock in a shuttle and shooting it straight into the sun. That's what you get for not getting here earlier. :D 

    By the way, see that search button between the 'new posts' and 'donate' button, maybe try using that. :dunce

    That was originally the case. Originally, Classics was planned to end at two waves, period. It was a filler line, meant to put some product out in the gap between Cybertron and the Movie line.

    But sales of the line were apparently strong, and with the Movie stuff selling gangbusters, Hasbro feels the franchise is in a good enough place that they can continue producing a more collector-oriented line like Classics. Conversely, if the Movie had done poorly, I'm sure Hasbro probably would have trimmed down their Transformers offerings to simply the Animated stuff, until the franchise revived itself.

    if memory serves classics has ended. but only in name, if i recall correctly they are returning in the fall of 2008 as perviously stated by someone else just under the banner of Universe again. that and we get ultras which was orginaly was not gonna have happen with the classics line.

    its interesting what strong sales does to a line. repaints and and bigger and more expensive toys AHOY!

    People, people, people - calm down. Sit down, take a deep breath.

    The guy who started this thread is obviously new. There's no need to throw insults at him because he's just discovering the site. Point him in the right direction, explain that other threads have been started (maybe even post the link to said threads) so it's not a problem in the future.

    I'm sure the mods will intervene soon but, as fans, we owe it to other members of this board to treat them with some respect and a little dinity. Keep the insults to yourselves.

    Blitzwing is for the anime show right...? Why does He look so good and Bumblebee and Optimus look like crap?

    *edit* or is that a Brawl repaint?
