    A friend of a friend someone knows who works for one of the "big box" retailers stated that after May all that is slated to be ordered and been allotted shelf space are movie line(DOTM) toys, it was also taken to be understood that the aforementioned "big box" retailer views RTS/Generations as basically shelf warmers between movies, can anyone confirm or deny this!!!

    Hasbro said Generations would continue in 2011.

    Even if the name changes it will be back. They've shown increased interest in the line in the last year.

    So instead of the usual Classics cookiemonstering,could we have some objectivity, please?

    If true - disappointed, but far from surprised.

    Best Buy? Also in before he tell me!!

    One more thing. I thought Hasbro announced this line continuing all through the end of the year and running tandem with the movie line? Would suck if it ended early as we've gotten so many good molds out of it. Maybe they'll just merge it into Reveal the Shield and keep that going for awhile.

    Will they be called Generations once DOTM stuff is released or just Generations style figures mixed in with the movie line?

    Wasn't it said at Botcon(I believe)that Generations would run along with the DOTM line? And hasn't this dude had a couple threads locked for spam in the last few hours?

    Well the CHUG threads were not meant to be taken seriously, I was mocking the constant tireless debate over the classics/CHUG moniker-dilemma. I'm not fear mongering, or cookie monstering(however that works) I would just like some reliable info other than my own sources to either confirm this as national or possibly isolated, we don't even have anything slated after Warpath and TC and WJ are most likely already going to be at retail this week!!! Think about it!!!

    Yeah, Hasbro JUST said the line would run through the year, and we were told that we'd be getting the alternate head sculpt figures as well.

    Now, I would not be surprised if that wasn't true, but seriously, we've heard stuff like this before, and from even more reputable people than "this friend's friend".

    Remember how we heard that Animated was going to be pulled off store shelves in May of 2009 to make way for the movie line, according to a Hasbro vendor, of all people? Remember how that didn't happen, toys remained on shelves, and Electrostatic Soundwave and Freeway Jazz still saw release months later in November of that year? Hell, we even got new activators and august and november of that year. Now, the Animated line did end that year (not counting exclusives from 2010), but it was a full six months after everyone said it would.

    So yeah, you'll have to pardon people if they don't immediately buy into the "this guy I know knows another guy who says the line is ending" thing.

    It's not really that big of a deal. Considering this line has been going on and off since the end of 06, it's very likely to continue coming back for the foreseeable future.

    Not that it would be pulled off, nothing that dramatic, just a directive to not order more once DOTM became available
