Actually I don't think Alts will be around so much longer. Both companies have admitted that their VERY expensive toys to produce, Takara have somewhat cancelled the line because of of the lack of sales (although aparntly KISS is selling, strangely enough) and if one company bails, it'd be hard for the other company to cover the production costs. It's been a line continuing for 3 years now, which is quite a long time for a current TF line (usually lasting 1-1.5 years). Of course, i'd like to see it continue, espically with the recent few releases which have been innovative and different (Rumble and Ravage). There's room for the line to expand (military and larger scale). As for the movie bombing - if it totally bombs - no sequels for a while, if ever. If it isn't a big sucess but makes a small profit - no doubt there'd be a sequel, that's what Hollywoods about these days, trilogies are in it would seem. If it bombs, and toy sales don't sell, well, in that case i'm sure Hasbro would cut back on certain TF lines, such as Classics and Titanium, onto hiatus until they begin to cover their losses. No doubt they'd continue on with a new toyline and cartoon though, they wouldn't just stop and die because the movie flopped. They'd be hurt, but not down for the count.
