    I looks like those people interested in Animated Arcee may be let down. The Club store of the Transformers Collector's Club has cancelled orders for Arcee. Word is the rest of the unreleased Animated toys are also on the chopping block. That means no Rodimus Prime, Blackout, Ratbat, ect.

    Hopefully, collectors will get some answers as to Arcee's fate at Botcon.

    EDIT: For those of us who pre-ordered Arcee, an email was sent out saying the pre-order was cancelled since Hasbro cancelled Arcee for the time being. The figure has also been removed from the Club store here: http://www.transformersclub.com/shop/

    Interesting....in a bad...very bad way. I just hope that at the very least the unique molds we've heard about get released eventually. Even if we would then have to wait for them to be released in Universe next year. One more week and we should, hopefully, find out what the fark is going on with Animated's toy line.

    To think, I was hoping we would get the last Animated toys before RoTF officially hits shelves. Thanks to this, I'm worried Rodimus, Arcee, and Blackout might not even make it.

    I'm elated at getting Classics Elita-1 one day and the next my heart is ripped out over this. Its like they cant allow two pink fembots to exist at the same time. The universe might explode or something.

    Sneak them into Movie packaging! What do we care, when it still means getting the toys!

    For all that went into them, make your money back on these Hasbro. Even if it means making them store exclusives. Especially since they would be entirely new toys that no other retailer could sell. Jealously among retailers ensues.

    Hasbro should take the Animated figures that are threw the process and release them on HTS as exclusives. Try and make back some of that R & D money.

    Do we know if a tool was ever created for these figures? I realize a prototype was made for Arcee but did a tool ever get made? If not, Hasbro wouldn't really need to make its money back since created tools is one of the most expensive parts of the process.

    Darnit Hasbro. And just when I had respect for you...

    There'd better be a logical reason behind this. Hopefully, they're just putting the orders on hold to make room for the movie. In a way, this cancellation means I won't be spending quite as much money as I was afraid I'd be doing.

    Here's hoping BotCon Q&A's will reveal some info on the whole matter...

    One would imagine a tool was made since Hasbro had plans at the beginning of the year to have her wave out before ROTF. The release just didn't happen in time for whatever reason.

    We don't. But if it was, then money needs to be made back to pay for the molds made and then some.

    Boy that would be weird if only Arcee and Soundwave had tooling made. 2 Animated figures all alone.
