    Kick. Ass.

    Jazz, Wheeljack, Blitzwing, Powermaster Prime please. Maybe some more dinobots and a headmaster. It is time.

    I thought it was returning next spring.


    That's like almost a year from now and it will again be sidelined due to the new cartoon's toyline.

    I hope we just don't have Bayformers til that time.

    I'm glad they've reconfirmed the release date. They stated Fall 2010 for Classics at Botcon, but it seems like that news went somewhat unnoticed. I still wonder why. :confused:

    Pretty sure Universe 2.0 ran concurrently with Animated.

    We've got several waves of Animated to come this year and next, plus Universe exclusives.

    People found doomsaying more fun, for some reason, and some let their dislike for ROTF blend with that, leading to wild interpretations like "every time Hasbro says 'ROTF aesthetic for the foreseeable future' in a QnA they mean FOREVER."

    It did, IIRC. It's never really going to be the main line, always a side line. That's the way it's been since Classics.

    Besides, ROTF-style and -branded bots for the rest of that time period are par for the course with a Movie year. It's not the first time, hardly.

    Wheeljack, Jizz, and a New Seeker mold, s'il vous plaît.

    That, and some '87 or '88-era guys.

    And a hard boiled egg.

    I'd say waiting another year is better than, you know, nothing at all.

    Odd that he mentions Bluestreak... a character already done in Universe.

    Eh. Don't want to read into it too much. Probably just an example off the top of his head.

    Great to hear this is still the plan! C'mon Jazz!!!!!!

    Eh, that's cool, I'll buy them.

    I enjoy new characters and toys just as much or slightly more than G1 rehashes, so I'm good either way.

    Sounds to me like he isn't really all that sure. Still, that sounds about right. I'm hoping for it to be in the summer (a bit earlier).

    Finish off the US Seekers and Dinobots. More Minibots as Legends. The last few waves of Legends were a massive amount of win...outside of the poor numbers and distribution.

    This would be good, They really skimped on the smaller classics figures like Cosmos, Warpath, ect... I never saw them in stores.

    Awesome. Some of the more recent Q&A sessions sounded as if the Universe line wasn't going to come back. As for the potential fall release date, that's pretty much what they said for Universe, so we could see the first wave sometime in August next year. It'll be interesting to see who gets updated this time. Hopefully enough Autobots to even things out on my Classics shelves. I wouldn't be surprised if Optimus and Megs also got updates this time around.

    I'd even love that a Voyager Prime with a Trailer sold as an Ultra. Give him a G2-styled Ultra Megatron to fight.

    I hope you are wrong and that we get more Bayformers. Why? Cause it´s the only line we had received here on a daily basis. We never got Universe.

    Yes! I'd love to see a new Powermaster Optimus Prime.
