    Lets just say it has been a very long time since I have purchased anything at retail. I hate that other fans aren't going to be able to get the figures they want, but I'm glad to have a reason to go back into my local retail stores.

    Yes, let us be overjoyed that some of your fellow collectors will never be able to complete the movie line without spending copious amounts of money. Especially those who were brought back into collecting solely because of the movie.

    Really, you should totally be happy.

    I'm done with the movie toys, so I'm not going to say that I'm heartbroken to see them go for awhile. Although, I was kind of looking forward to HA Soundwave to add to my HA collection. I do feel bad for the people who were waiting anxiously for that last wave to be released, though.

    I'm not a huge fan of the movie lines, but I'm sad the DOTM line was cancelled, because I'm not a dick.

    My fellow fans who enjoyed the line are now possibly never going to get to complete their casts, and be forced to get what few remaining figures were released in asia at inflated, scalper prices. That's not cool. I know what that feels like.

    Ahahahaha! TF4 is greenlit so you reckon movie toys are gone forever? Bayformers are like sand people, when they gather their courage they will be back, and in greater numbers!

    To the OP, just because you don't like the movie lines doesn't mean other people don't. I love the movie lines, it's what brought me back to collecting in the first place. I'm actually quite disappointed to see them go.

    How would it sound if I came in here proclaiming "ha, I'm so happy canada got FE prime toys and the US didn't because now I can trade them at a higher value". comes off quite douchey doesn't it. That's why some things that pop into your head don't automatically have to have a thread made about it.

    besides, it's not like every peg that previously contained movie toys is going to suddenly have tons of generations/classics/prime on them.

    Personally, yes. I just want to focus on Prime figures and FOC.

    As a movie line collector, yeah I'm pretty bummed out. I didn't have choice and had to buy HA Soundwave at scalper prices. (Too awesome to pass up) Every cloud has a sliver lining though... It will be nice to not have to see Nitro Bumblebee everywhere anymore :D

    I'm one of those who are sad the movie line is gone. Honestly I was more looking forward to some of the older molds making a comeback. There were a few I missed, and I didn't want to resort to online purchasing. But, its also a blessing in disguise, I guess. Like Sentinel Prime once said: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." There are so many out there who are just so over the movie line and its fifty gazillion bumblebee variants, it was beyond a bad joke. I'm just spewin that Australia didn't get a chance with the later releases, I was pretty keen on DLX Soundwave and wanted to see HA basic Dragstrip in person.

    Now, when the hell does Arcee hit Aussie shelves....

    As a person who understands everyone has different tastes, my sympathies go out to movie fans. It sucks they'll miss out on stuff they want. I've been there too and it's not fun.

    As a person who despises the movie aesthetics, yeah I'm glad it will be a significantly reduced presence.

    One "good" thing is that Hasbro seems to screw us all equally, haha. I got screwed out of the FE line (at retail prices anyway). Good to know they aren't playing favorites when it comes to canceling stuff. :)

    I'm happy for two reasons: 1)That urge to vomit upon seeing the shelfwarming movie crap will finally be gone, and 2)It'll allow for Prime's toy-lines to flourish unhindered by more movie crap taking up shelf and peg space.

    While I do feel bad for those who wanted the unreleased toys, I'm glad it's gone. Though I did want HA and Deluxe Soundwave...

    A line ending is never a happy thing, especially when it was one wave away from anticipated new molds.

    I can't take a thread serious if one doesn't know how to spell Cancel correctly.

    I'd say I'm quite relieved that the movie line is cancial. I've been getting quite sick of looking at the aesthetic of the figures and I'll be happy to go even a little bit without seeing them again.
