    Will there be a new Transformers series coming like this? This is the way Transformers should be made.

    I would like to see Transformers with a more grown up (Adult) feel to it.

    Someone please let me know.

    If you mean TV series - no.

    The Universe line is what Classics morphed into, and its just a toy line.

    It would be very cool, and it's been suggested many, many times, but it's not likely to happen.

    Obviously as far as Hasbro's concerned, the cartoons are primarily adverts for their toylines, and the Universe line is a relatively small one aimed at - as far as they're concerned - a very small market. They'll happily cater to us toy-wise - personally I'm tempted to think that's at least partially because most of the guys at Boys' Toys are big TF fanboys themselves ;)  - but commissioning an animated TV show is an enormous undertaking, and extremely risky if you don't know you've got the built-in ratings before you start. A relatively small, hardcore fanbase isn't enough to justify continuing production costs, as many TV shows have found.

    I must admit, though, I would be passively curious as to what it might cost to commission such a series, and how much interest would be required to justify such an outlay (either for Hasbro to commission it themselves, or possibly more likely, for a smaller independent production company to produce the show and acquire the licence)...

    Is there any poll that shows how much we spend on transformers. I doubt anyone goes to big bad toy store for their kids. Tformers stuff sells I live in NY and rarely see anything worth while on the shelves last to long. I hate animated. Just because I feel I deserve more, not neccesarily for the show itself which I know is not fair.
    P.S. lugnut is cool promised I would'nt buy one fig, but have to have him

    That is old. I wouldn't mind seeing a show like that. And yes, it has been suggested quite a bit.

    I hope that sometime, when animated ends, we'll have a series with this type of design.

    a:

    Transformers with a "more grown up feel" has always been pseudo-gritty adolescent ultraviolence (lame) or just plain boring (DULL SURPRISE!), so I would have to disagree. I want this to be fun!

    (The recent movie was anything /but/ grown up, but it sure was fun!)

    Now, if you mean you'd like to see a Transformers cartoon with the traditional cast in traditional style done as realistic CGI, like that little flash video...now that I would love to see. But it's not planned, as far as I know.
