    This is just a quick vent - which most of you will agree with (whether you admit it or not)

    I HATE THESE DOWN TIMES WITH NOTHING HAPPENING. No TF Prime shows, No new TF Prime toys, No worthy discussion topics, just waiting waiting waiting.
    Nothing to hunt. Not even any good Radicon customs to check out.
    It really sucks the wind out of one's excited sails.
    I mean we haven't seen a new voyager figure in the stores since March. We've known about upcoming figures for months and months and they still don't show up and if they do, they are shortpacked and make it murder to find.
    There There, just be patient. These things happen....whatever

    Jack beat me to it...there are stuff out there, it's just not Prime related. I'm gunna be sad when RB hits it's season finale cause I've been looking forward to it more than Prime lol...but I think FoC will help fill that void :)

    I call these "saving money to buy the next avalanche of toys" times. Or "catching your breath and buying older toys you missed out on" times.

    Every other part of Transformers could stop, including the toys, and the MtMtE comic alone would be enough coolness to make this not be a factor.


    -ZacWilliam, and this month we get a tripple dose, with the regular book and the annual.

    No love for Kre-o, the single handedly greatest thing since the exclusive Arms-Micron?
    I mean, after that there's always Kiss Players fanfiction, featuring tiny girls in bikinis, with giant robots and an Alternators Rodimus that has a fishing pooooooole!

    You're not alone, mate. I'm sure a lot of people would agree with you that these temporary lulls can be annoying. But it's not like the entire franchise has ground to a halt. There's plenty of Transformers-related stuff to keep you occupied, as specified by jack's post. Whether or not you, personally, happen to like the current stream of Transformers-related things in said lull is up to you.

    There's always these lulls. But they do eventually end. TFP will come back on the air soon, rumours of TF4 will start popping up slowly in the next year or so, Rescue Bots will continue on, and so on and so forth.

    You are right and I agree, but it was cathartic to let my vent be made known.
    So thank you all for humoring me! Love live (most) all things Transformers!!

    Seems like this whole year was one big wait as far as Transformers is concerned. Shockwave and Bruticus were big let downs, but at least I have FOC to look forward to.

    Anybody know how far in advance the game actually arrives in the stores? I don't plan on waiting until the 21st to buy FOC just because somebody said they have to wait until the release date to sell the game.

    IDW comics and FOC is tiding me over, among other non-TF things that I like.

    Uh. You can't buy the game until the 21st anywhere. That's the release date.

    try collection and or watching other toylines/shows along side transformers, when i am so busy with kamen rider, super sentai, and anime, i don't even notice that i haven't bought a new transformer in over a month because i can't find anything.

    the break prime is on could go on another month and it wouldn't bother me, half the time i forget transformers prime even exist until i see a photo of a toy or a new episodes comes out :lol
