    Until they convince Michael Bay #4 is a good idea. Or they get a different director and reboot the series. Movies are getting to be about like pictures on Facebook, once it's out there, it's out there and you can't end it. I have a feeling that this won't be the last Transformers movie line of toys. I think we'll see them again, maybe not within the next five years but they'll be back. Whether it's a brand new movie series, in a different continuity/universe or the same ones back again, I highly doubt that this will be the end of it.

    Well yeah. A new series is probably the most likely, and with it, a whole new design aesthetic. I'm rather excited about that part. Really curious what direction it would go in.

    Every director has a new take on things, depending on who they get. Although I'm getting a little picky these days, I want a good story as well as good design aesthetics.

    Story is important, but I always like seeing new takes on the Transformers designs.

    Absolutely. I just hope there's not a rut with the movie stuff being only one way and newer, non-comics don't fall into that "We have to make X character very similar to his movie self" Most of these characters we're familiar with have a brand recognition to them, you know Prime is red with windows on his chest and a grill for abs, you know Ratchet is the ambulance, etc.

    I don't care what could happen or be done. As long as 3/4 of it is robots killing robots!

    Has anyone heard about the RTS line being sold under the DOTM line up? I know TRU.com is doing this, but dont know if this is a mistake on TRU's part or Hasbro and retailers are changing the line up to make it sell? The reason im asking is i'm needing Perceptor, Wreck-gar and Grapple so i can wrap up the RTS line and focus on other collectibles. Any help would be great.

    I would say just bite the very large caliber bullet and pop them off the second market.

    You could start checking Kroger's. I had all but given up on RTS line, but found G2 Prime, Bumblebee, and Tracks sitting in the little toy section. Its a long shot, but you could still try there for the deluxes.

    I found them at just a regular Kroger in Vandalia. I just checked the Beavercreek Kroger Marketplace at lunch and they were only carrying older figures. I think its just hit and miss. If that particular store manager orders the figures.

    Thats what I've been doing! I've scored 2 G2 Primes, 2 Wreck-Gars, and I've seen a few BBs there! Plus, the nice addition of 4 Shock Troopers, 1 wave 3 Snake Eyes, 2 Shadow Trackers, and a Skydive! I'm really loving my Krogers lately.

    Might be a good idea. The main one I go to had G2 Prime and Perceptor, the last time that I checked.
