So in theory the last we would have seen of the dinobots is them flying into the sea... I'm kinda happy they never got any screen time

Now at least they have lots of holes for spinoffs to fill out on comic books and hopefully some toys in the Universe line later.

Ok SO they've now officially said its over...have they said why?

If its only over because Hasbro want to run their own series on thier new channel thats kinda lame.

I assume we will at least get a season 3 dvd release?

And not saying what will happen to the the toy line suggests one of two things,

They are making the announcement separately (possibly with anouncement of the last pieces) or even Hasbro haven't fully decided what they're doing with the toy line yet.

My guess is the latter
Current Animated Want List - Voyager Prime (black) - Rodimus (black) - Elite Guard Prowl - Motormaster - Dragstrip - Wildrider - Deadend - Breakdown - Toxitron - Sideswipe - Minerva - Fisitron - Cheetor - Jackpot
I'm a girl BTW...the clue is in the name

Agreed. Don't you just LOL at the folks who are all like "man, what's wrong - they tied it up PERFECTLY!" I mean like, really... did they? Sigh.

Yeah, well good for you. Plenty of us aren't glad that it failed. Some of us bothered to give it a real chance and watch it grow into one of the best TF incarnations ever offered since the inception of the franchise. I wasn't a fan of the designs at first either, but heck, they grew on me so fast I soon questioned why I ever doubted the look in the first place.

Yeah, this is really what I want to know. People can make up reasons all they like about how the show didn't do well or the toys didn't sell, but those are totally unproven things, and I really want someone to agressively press Hasbro on this at the panel tomorrow and find out WHY the legs have been cut out from under the line. Yes, it's lifespan has been about the same as a Unicron Trilogy show, but those were specifically *designed* to be that long and had their cartoons produced with that timeframe in mind - Animated has clearly been cut short before it has reached its natural end.

Simple economics really. Finally it is confirmed and honestly thank God. Hell Kickback had to change his signature just to stop the denial on so many levels. I am glad it failed and maybe we can move on to a cool-looking Transformers show. Finally some catharsis on this issue.
What the hell, this was a cool looking show, much better than that anime shit, anime is full of bullshit, this new style was somthing new, I dont want shitty block looking TFs, cars are NOT boxes! Every TF show tried to stick with the ususal, this show had the balls and the audacity to try somthing new, thats why its an awesome show. The story line was good the action was awsum the animation was by far the best TF animation. Only a true TF fan would actually give a new series a chance, but arrogant assholes like yourself dont see that, the toyline did sell well, I barely even see animated toys when I go in a store, the shelves are empty as hell, and the only things left is the universe line on clearence for $8.99

This all reminds me of the 2002 Mike Young Productions He-Man... it was an awesome show beloved by the fandom and ended way too soon. ::sigh::

I think that if I like something, it gets cancelled... must learn to never like anything.

Shew! For a minute there I thought Hasbro was going to actually keep an amazing thing going. But no, like everything else they do they can't keep a good thing going.

Good job Hasbro. Hey while you're at it can you see if you can destroy some more good things out there? You know the wheel's been around for awhile, I think it's time you guys stepped in and f*cked that up too.
