    So, what are the odds of TF Prime getting a line made? I figure that the figures won't be out until after TF: TDOTM line has run it's course and along side the Generations line

    They will most definitely be made. Transformers is all about the toys, and if there's any major fiction, you bet there's gonna be at least one toy from there.

    They look terrible. I want no part of it. I saw someone's sig with cliffjumper and it looks awful. I hope they dont make prime toys.

    I also have a hard time trying to envision these TF prime cartoon designs transferring over to toy forms.

    at best i'd get megatron & thats it.

    It's always a good idea to not ever make toys instead of risking this sort of reaction from your fan base.

    100%. There will be Prime toys, but they will arrive later, probably in Fall '11. They just won't be released alongside the show, which was what Hasbro meant originally. It just got misquoted.

    Do you guys listen to yourselves? When was the last time we had a TV show and didn't get toys?

    They're making toys. I don't know why people think they won't. Hasbro said at Botcon that they were currently working on Bulkhead.

    People said that about Animated, and look how that turned out. Most screen-accurate TFs ever, aside from Cybertron (which used CG models based 100% on the toys, down to the screw holes).

    I don't underestimate Hasbro anymore. I never thought anything like ROTF Leader prime or starscream could exist either.

    It definitely will get a toyline and I'm sure it'll be awesome. I actually really like the designs for prime.

    Prime toys will get made but they won't look anything like their bot modes on the show.

    Someone needs to put this on the front page.
    Transformers Prime is getting a toy line. Please stop making threads asking if it is getting a toy line.

    Giant red letters are the only way people will notice.

    The question should not be if they will be made.

    The question is when.

    I'd say the odds are somewhere between 90 and 100 percent. :) 

    Near-identical things have been said about Animated and Movie designs. Hasbro and Takara have gotten pretty good at leap-frogging expectations ... at times.

    This.... And if they do, only do the ones that look good... And I don't think they look good at all....

    If they didn't say this is starscream, I would never know who it really is!

    Asking if a TOY company is making TOYS of the hottest property they have right now, a new series that's supposed to be the groundwork for several years worth of shows...?

    EDIT: oh hey my Cliffjumper sig got mentioned! I think he's the best Prime design so far.

    Yeah, even if it will take some time to get accustomed to (for me, just like animated did, and I freaking love animated), I have to say that Cliffjumper is one of the better designs yet.

    We won't know for certain until after the DotM line starts winding down. However, I think the only way we won't see TF: Prime figures would be if the cartoon absolutely bombs. I'd imagine Hasbro is planning figures even now but, if the cartoon is a complete failure and doesn't generate interest with kids, they'd probably pull the plug on any potential line.

    That highly unlikely scenario aside, I think we're guaranteed a toyline for Prime.
