    Much as the response at the Botcon IDW panel warmed my heart, I don't expect anything to come of it.

    I already signed the petition weeks ago, because Marcelo's supporting it and he's awesome, but the whole thing's a hell of an uphill battle, despite the clear demand.

    I don't see why a comic is out of the question. I'll bite.

    Ditto. There might be nothing to gain, but there's nothing to lose, so the slim potential of possible gain outweighs.

    Oops. :)

    I've accepted the fact that Animated is no more and BotCon has done a good job of letting it end on a high note (again). At this point if we saw the last few toys released and Season 3 on DVD, I'd be content with the series riding off into the sunset.

    Hey, they said they would consider continuing Marvel G1 if that got ten thousand votes. Who knows, if this gets enough votes...

    Every party involved is already well aware of the request for more Animated material. I doubt a petition is going to change that. If there are no plans for things like Animated in comic form it probably has its reasons.

    Also, petitions never really have influence anyway.

    I feel the pretty much the same. Anything beyond what we've already gotten is just gravy, but why turn down the opportunity for a little more gravy? :D

    Didn't IDW say somewhere that a TFA comic series may be possible after the movie line has it's run, if there was still a big enough market for it?

    The reaction to the poll in the IDW panel was awesome! :rock  I'm pessimistic that we'll ever actually see any more Animated content (at least not outside of FunPub), but what the hey, might as well sign the petition just in case.

    I'm amazed IDW even asked the question...but I'm glad they did. It's nice to see that Animated can still bring the love.

    irony, all these people probably originally hated animated.

    and then the toys were announced, and they looked just like the show, then they decided "oh i am not going to WAIT to buy them in the stores, so i am going to buy them on ebay, from kotoys, who steals them from the factories!"

    and then everyone had the toys before they came out.

    hasbro failed to make a profit off of the fans, because the fans for the most part all had the original released toys.

    but to be fair to the fans, hasbro DID do it to themselves, as the show came out in december 07, and the first 2 seasons were fully AIRED before the toys were released in June/July.

    lol but anyways the same very people who said "tfa raped my child hood!"

    now want more toys :lol

    So how will this petition accomplish what so many other similar petitions failed to?

    Well, Chris Ryall has clearly stated that if fans can get the G1 #81 petition to 10,000 signatures, he'll green light the comic. If he'll do it for an old comic series, it's not completely out of the question for him to do it for a newer one.

    Not that I think either petition has much of a chance (the #81 one has been pushed hard for months and just now managed to top 2000 sigs, so it's not exactly on fire). But the actual guys in charge have said that it could potentially happen.

    There is so much fail there it's practically a failboat of fail.

    Hasbro made a profit off Animated. Cartoon Network, not Hasbro aired the first two seasons back to back. Venders, not Hasbro wanted to delay Animated on the shelves so they could maximize the movie figure sales on their shelves.

    I've never heard anyone say TFA raped their childhood. Sure, there are plenty of detracters, but I've never heard that statement said by anyone.

    IDW and Hasbro made a profit off the Almanacs, which sold out and are going to press again. Botcon showed further proof of this.

    Animated is over. I'd rather just let it go out with a bang (Botcon) than to choke on it until it hits a point where I don't like it anymore.
