    What next?

    Profit?

    Maybe the Universe line will come back to fill in until TF3. Perhaps it'll have a cheap show scripted to fill a couple of seasons and the time until the next movie to help sell a few Universe toys.

    Don't say Animated is coming to an end... it hurts too much... anyways, I'm still holding on to the hope that the end of Animated isn't a financial problem and they might pick up the idea of Season 4 again.

    Before and after T:ROTF 2 years worth of movie toys cause right now all the original Transformers movie toys have been more shelf warmers than anything. The sheer glut of Movie toys has even surprised me and yet no clearance sales to get rid of them.

    TF:animated ending is still, to my knowledge, just a rumor.
    R-U-M-O-R.
    I've heard no official statements indicating the end of series or toyline.
    It's not time to jump in lifeboats yet.
    Enjoy the cruise while you can.

    ^This

    I'm starting to wonder if its just taking a long break during the movie, or going to be continued ala A/E/C style. As long as the same style continues I'll be happy

    Do you think they'll do a series that bridges the two year gap between the first movie and ROTF? I'm hoping they might do it, but I think it's rare to do a live action series based on our favourite bots...

    Oh well. Nothing to do but daydream and wait to find out.

    We don't know that Animated is coming to an end...so far its all just rumour and speculation until it confirmed officailly.

    All we do know is that the story which was going to be seasons 3 and 4 have been condensed into one.
    While that could mean the show is being run down, it could equally mean that they want to create another story arc which was considered for further down the line and bring it forward.
    and my theory on that?
    Rodimus Prime + Cyclonus = Unicron

    Hes coming its a given that hes going to show up in every incarnation now...lets get past the bad stuff and ask how it could be cool?

    It was one of those rare exceptions. It's always hit or miss as far as I'm concerned.

    I saw the movie toys sitting at a Kaybee's a year or so ago. I saw nobody buying them.

    See my comment. Again. It's always a hit or miss with these things.

    I would hope that Hasbro would do something, y'know, maybe innovative or new that would push them over the top of that heap they've seemed to be so content lying under for so many years, but I won't hold my breath.

    Like people said, Animated hasnt been officially cancelled after season 3. They may just be waiting and making season 4 a year or two from now just like a movie.

    Animated was my favorite TF cartoon series. It had elements of G1 and Beast Wars mixed together. Seeing old characters reincarnated in new alt/robot modes with new attitudes and everything, was a great change of pace. Animated will prolly reign as the greatest series for me no matter what, especially if they make a Rodimus or Beachcomber toy.

    Not sure, though the more I think about it, the more I think Animated may not be over. Just that it's going to go on hiatus (like Universe is) till the RotF line is mostly over. I could definitely see them continuing on with a fourth season. Though it's hard to say. Either way I hope that whatever show does come after Animated's inevitable end has Grimlock and at least two other Dinobots in it. Honestly, I think that a cartoon based off of the Movies, with a more simplistic look (maybe even in an Animated-like style) would be pretty cool. I don't think they'd have to go with 100% cannon to the movies, but at least have some similar story to it. They could even introduce characters that aren't in the movies themselves. In the end we'll just have to wait and see. We still need to hear something official from Hasbro about Animated's fate (both show and toy wise).

    Oh, I thought it was confirmed. Yay!

    And an off-topic idea; anyone think Blurr is a Velocitronian?
