Yeah, more than likely. However, that won't stop thousands of largely uniformed fans from going "!Oh NOES!" *insert more annoying leet speach*. It looks like the fanbase has already started beating a dead horse again. Mirage looks good and so does Prime, IMPO. Even if Takara-Tomy decides to end BT/BT* it is very probable that the alternators line will still continue as just about everything that Takara-Tomy/Hasbro do for Transformers is a joint effort. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if Takara-Tomy is simply putting BT/BT* on the back burner for now sense they're going through the merger. But hey, that's being rational... and this fanbase (any fanbase) is hardly that.
