    i wonder?

    I hope so. If the movie toy commercials can make those toys look fun then these could look very cool.

    They might. Cybertron had toy commercials to promote their toys.

    Most likely, but when the movie toys came out they didn't start till a while after the toys release date, and Animated's just past, so probably closer to the end of the year.

    I'm sure there will be some sooner or later. Like many TF commercials, they may be concentrated around the holiday season.

    Yep I just saw the same one about an hour ago. I may have no interest in the TF:A toys but it's still fun to see new TF commercials.

    Weird, for the people in the US, what channels are you seeing them on?
    Cartoon Network is one of the two channels I watch on a regular basis and I haven't seen anything other than small adds for the show.

    then another one about a half hour ago, focused more on the Autobots in general (Prime, Prowl, BB, Bulkhead, [dont remember ratchet])

    it was an extension of the first one i saw, also advertised the battle begins thing at the end-on Nickelodeon (sp?)

    I hope they start going a bit overboard with the advertising, because the line is starting to stagnate in all of the local stores. My girlfriend is visiting her family, and she checked all of her stores (K-Mart, Target, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart) and all of them are stocked full of figures. Even Bumblebees and Lockdowns! (and they were among the first to sell out!) Even Starscream has a hard time leaving the shelves.

    What gives? People clamored for them, Hasbro wants to make money (obviously) and yet no one really knows they're out there, and those that do have already bought what they needed, etc.

    I heard all of the reasons why Hasbro postponed the line, I get it, I don't agree with it, and it looks like it might blow up in their face. If you saw all of the Blackarachnias and Ratchets sitting on my stores pegs...well, let's put it this way, you could melt them down and probably do a full run of an exclusive figure for the collector's club. And then some.

    I want people to know they're out there, so the product moves, so new stuff can come in. At this rate, those of you who collect Classics will have a hard time finding them, there's no space for 'em!

    Our only saving grace at this point is the eventual fall reset. That should get everything moving nicely. ...I hope.

    We've been seeing them for probably two months here, on every Saturday morning.
