    I thought classics was going to start up after the movie stuff is done and then in Fall '08 we get Universe and the animated, does that not start in Jan?

    Well, until Animated starts (I forget when, but it's not in the fall... that's when Universe starts) and probably a little into Animated we're going to see an 'expanded movie universe' type of line subtitled 'Power of the Allspark' or something like that. That's where the Osprey (named Incinerator) shown at the Hasbro tour was said to be from. There were a few other new characters named as well (most of which are based on S7 vehicles), but their names escape me right now. How long the expanded movie line will last though is beyond me... I doubt they'll carry it into Fall.

    I'm more into the movie line right now. I think I have fallen in love with the new designs and just prefer them more but I can see them having the line out for a year. I mean come on Cybertron has been out for that long and hasn't been on tv in well what a year or more.

    I believe animated starts in January, or early spring. I could be wrong. *shrug*

    Yeah, but I believe it was stated somewhere that the show would start at one date and the figures would follow a month or so later. Or something to that effect similar to what happened with the Beast Machines toys. I may have been misreading though.

    With the investment made in the movie, I have to believe that Hasbro will milk it as long as it can... There should be a whole second round of promotion when they release the DVD later this year.

    Spring 08 = Transformers Animated, some Movie stuff left over
    Fall 08 = Transformers Animated, Transformers Universe (return of Classics, perhaps a Titanium thrown in, etc.)

    Hasbro can take their sweet old time. I still need some movie stuff yet before I'm worried about what's next.

    Agreed. Plus, if they keep releasing Movie toys like that Osprey and such then I'm sure it'll be a more then pleasent wait.

    Wait...they are bringing back the Universe concept? I thought that had been a big failure and thats why was phased out. And because I am lazy, does anyone have a link to pics of new stuff shown at Botcon?
