    I wonder what will happen with Alternity now. If it expands past two molds I may be interested. Hopefully it wouldn't get as monotonous and stale as Alternators did. Good call.

    Hey, just because you refuse to sell your car, blood, your body, etc. to get to Botcon like everyone else doesn't give you the right to bitch about it. Besides, the price should be more than paid back in free beers, if you did go.

    Yeah this was pretty much known since there was nothing else for them to come out.

    After them it will just likely be Strafe, Ghost Starscream, Clear Mirage (if he's not out by then), and the last Generations Book mail away figure (if it's a Henkei fig).

    Damn. I was hoping they'd keep going with repaints. Ie: Sunstorm, Grapple, Outback, Swindle...

    Crap crap crap.

    Well, Sunstorm could still happen. Just because the mainline is over doesn't mean that they may not release a few exclusives like Dirge, Thrust, Clear Mirage, Ghost Starscream & Strafe. Sunstorm seems ideal as some kind of exclusive for them... the others... not so much.

    I'm sure Henkei will be back after the movie. I'm not worried. It will give my wallet a rest.

    I'm glad they squeezed Smokey in there before ending the line. Looks soooo much better than the Hasbro version.

    I guess hoping for a whole new something or the other to replace the space that will get left over by the movie-verse vacuum would be a stretch eh?

    As much as I love the movie stuff, at least give us SOMETHING else to be excited about. But, I guess all the third party stuff can keep me busy for awhile....sigh

    I'm not surprise. There are no unique molds left and with the movie coming out, it was unlikely for TakTomy to continue making new molds for the line.

    O well I have all the remaining releases on preorder and my wallet will breathe a huge sigh of relief. Here's hoping to some nice Henkei figs in 2010.

    Couldn't "The End" mean the end of the article? lol Maybe I'd think differently if I was reading the article, but I doubt it. Usually "The End" at the END of an article means "End of Article".

    I just noticed I said "article" way too many times.

    Anyways, it's indeed finished(for now), then that's cool, I guess. Overall, I liked Henkei better than Universe, but what can you do. Just wait, I suppose.

    Eh we knew Universe was going on hiatus so it makes sense so is Henkei. It would be really cool if we could get a Sunstorm report from Henkei during the "drought" but Universe/Henkei will be back in 2010 so no worries.

    I'm still waiting for Hasbro to release their Special Edition of Cliffjumper with a proper Cliffjumper head onto the red Bumblebee deluxe mold. I remember them mentioning that before they released the first four SE (Optimus Prime, Megatron, Overkill, Drag Strip). I hope they haven't ditched it.

    As for the end of Henkei line, I'm not at all worried. They'll be back. Hasbro still has plans for the Universe line after they are done with the Movie line. The Movie line only lasts when the theatrical movie is still around or until their DVD/BR sales die down, I think.

    I knew I should have waited to get Henkei Smokescreen...my Hasbro version looks so dull next to my Henkei Bluestreak...
