    With Animated finishing up, Universe no more, and Revenge of the Fallen toys working on a few more stuff what do you think will be new series in summer 2010? Meaning what kind of new toys will we see from which series?

    Probably the new game figure line. That and whatever this supposed new show is. Plus, didn't they mention Universe 3.0 somewhere?

    Power Core Combiners and the potential War for Cybertron toy lines are the only one's we know about that could start up in the Summer. Universe's continuation isn't said to be coming out till fall, and it'll be under a different name to boot.

    It'll be interesting to see exactly how long RotF lasts threw this year. I'm hoping it'll end in the Spring, but it could very well last into the Summer. TF1's toy line lasted clear into the fall of the next year, though the way RotF's been going, I can't see it doing the same.

    Everything and anything. Looking forward to another awesome year of TF collecting. Looking forward to Combiner Huffer, Leader Starscream, and any WFC toys!

    I think that's the one in France. The one in New York doesn't begin till Feb. 14th, and it's typically the one that releases the most information.

    Though after what happened last year, they might be more stingy with information this year.

    my guess is
    Now /Spring/ Summer: NEST ROTF Subline, War For Cybertron line, Power Core Combiner Subline, rebrand of ROTF to just Transformers with some new molds of movie verse
    Fall/Winter: Generations, new series (NOT Power Core Combiners, sorry. We'll know more at either TF or Botcon)
    Winter 2011: Generations, new show
    Summer 2011: Other lines on hold, Bayformers 3 line (too soon, what happend to giving a sereies time to sell? Stupid Bayformers)

    All I can see is upcoming for 2010 is Starscream ruining my wallet. Leader Starscream, Ghost MP Starscream (has that been discredited?) Alternity Starscream. WFC Starscream, big Starscreams, small Starscreams and, er, Starscream promotions in BurgerKing. Ok, I may have made some of that up ;)  But if Starscream doesn't get his own line I'll march on Hasb... /snip

    Honestly, I have no clue. It might just be The NEST line, and other than that, nothing.

    and I thought I had the market cornered for the many Starscreams (I have both Energon versions, King Starscream, TRU Starscream in Thrust colors and Classics) but then again I have a army of jets for the Decepticons

    If that ain't enough to keep you busy, I don't know what is.

    Obviously, the release date for those Animated toys is still up in the air. I'm sure some of them won't make it out in the first half of the year, but I have no idea which order they'll be released in.

    And then in summer/fall, we've got the Power Core Combiners, the Generation and War For Cybertron Toys, new mainline "goldbox" toys like Sea Spray and Battle Ops Bumblebee, plus other lines like the Stealth Force RPMs.

    Second half of 2010?
    -War For Cybertron Optimus Prime
    -War For Cybertron Bumblebee
    -War For Cybertron Megatron
    -Power Core Combiners Huffer with Caliburst
    -Power Core Combiners Smolder with Chopster
    -Power Core Combiners Searchlight with Backwind
    -Power Core Combiners Bruticus
    -Battle Ops Bumblebee
    -Seaspray
    -deluxe Ironhide
    -RPM Drift
    -RPM Bumblebee track set


    And that's just from Hasbro. I wouldn't even know where to begin with all the great stuff from overseas, like Alternity Starscream or the Disney label stuff. If you collect Japanses TFs too, then this list probably just doubled in size (if not even tripled or quadrupled, since they're releasing all the Animated toys so quickly, along with their usual releases).
