    The movie line has had a great run, but it's time to move on. I collected so much of it that I'm burned out and really want something new like Prime.
    Not getting Que and Dino? Meh. Wasn't going to get them anyway, so that's three less movie figs warming pegs that can be used for Prime and Generations.

    If we get the Deluxe Optimus with trailer, that's enough for me. It's the only one of the line I would have bought, anyway. Unless they came out with a DotM Leader Megatron or something. But that was never going to happen.

    If Movieverse was still going on I'd be hella disappointed, but since the line hasn't done anything in months I just don't care anymore.

    My thought is: having just pulled the trigger on HA Soundwave on eBay, that's it for my movie collection.

    I'm sort of sad we won't be getting any new movie toys, but then again, so many in the DotM line were terrible, it doesn't feel like much of a loss. I have all the ones I care about.

    Not enough Offscreen character concepts. And no Mirage anyway.
    glad I can see something other than movie toys this year. Hopeing movie toys may not make a return until 2014. So we will have the kind of Awesome toy break the gijoe fans got between their movies.
    Granted I actually do enjoy the movie stuff. With stuff like Hunt for the Decepticons and the Movie video games I enjoy the movie verse a ton more. Because the characters are put into more imaginative action set pieces that feel like the classic war on Earth, With lots of weighty powerful weapons hardware and dry humor dialog equally thrown around. I don't know how to explain it. But the color pallete is often like the sun is setting in the horizon with a vibrant glow reflecting off the Transformers. Its pretty great.

    So at least I have cyberverse Soundwave. He's cool enough.

    meh, it's time for them to get the Movie stuff off the shelves anyway. The Wal Mart near me has had wave 1 and 2 DOTM figures on shelves since December

    The only disappointment has to be Leadfoot and that's because I wasted enough money on Topspin and Roadbuster.

    No, the three movies, and their toylines, are done. Whether or not they make more movies isn't even a point since it wouldn't be for quite awhile anyway.

    In the meantime, we can all move on to bigger and better things.

    My thoughts are that this shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone who was paying attention, and that it was prudent of me to just buy them from Asia.

    Since you asked, here's my opinion on the subject.

    I sympathize for those who enjoy the movie line and won't be able to get theoretically cool figures. But I despise the movie aesthetics so their death, or at least greatly diminished presence, pleases me on a greedy personal level.
