    I don't think we're going to see another line wide gimmick. I believe it was at Hascon where they said Generations is plans out to 2020 and that the would use the PW3 gimmicks when appropriate.

    Because the last two movies worked out so well for them, am I right?

    I'm more or less hoping the Bee movie saves Bayformers BUT I'm curious as to what they are planning for Evergreen (I'm very much against EG overtaking Generations according to recent rumors). I'm tired of the same characters over and over again tbh

    Remember how the same slide in 2016, told us about RID coming to an end.

    Except RID is ever-so-slightly continuing in 2018 with the final wave of Crash Combiners, so it's not exactly cut-and-dry.

    At the very least, there are still four more single-packed Prime Masters unaccounted for.

    Bumblebee & Optimus have been the main focal point since 2007! They've been ramming those 2 fuckers down our throats for the past 11 years. So what's new? What is actually going to change?

    Most Generations lines seem to last a year or a year and a half, so they could still have some room to fill out PoTP to six waves. It might wind up with the last waves being heavy on retools (like whatever they re-use Leader Optimus for or a boxset of dinobot retools). They did get most of Titans Return on to store shelves in the U.S., with only deluxe wave 5 being really scarce, and I could see some "specials" (like how Grotusque and Arcee happened) coming towards the end of the line or in a break period. Hopefully the next line isn't as committed to one gimmick as Titans Return and PoTP were though and we have some variety again.

    I would LOVE it if Megatron and Barricade killed them off and ultimately took their place in becoming the NEW focal point but judging by the contempt both Hasbro executives and CEO has for us, that "turning point" will never see the light of day :cry :cry :cry

    Yeah, because a $1.1 billion dollar movie and another movie that did less well financially but still did well in terms of its toylines are clearly indicators that the movies have not worked well for Hasbro.

    Every single movie year has been of benefit to Hasbro. No exceptions. If people don't like the movies or the movie toys that is fair enough, but I'd rather fans not project their own dislike of things onto Hasbro somehow doing "poorly."

    A TF rpg could be intriguing.

    Looking forward to the new movie and series! Can't wait to see what the VW Bumblebee will look like, and can't wait to see what the new toon line will look like too.

    Not so worried about generations, they've said before they've got material through and past 2020, as well as many more characters to come. Many of which can use the new engineering pieces. Plus they may also find ways to use old molds in new ways too.

    More curious on the new games. Lots of potential there across all brands. Especially after seeing how well skylanders/Amiibo/Lego Dimensions has done.

    I don't want POTP to end before giving us a Leader Class Evolution Star Saber and BW Megatron.

    Hopefully Generations will actually become Generations again as opposed to ‘Generation 1 with some other stuff sometimes but also not really’... because that sure is a mouthful.
