    Yeah, Three Seasons is alot for many cartoons. G1 and Beast Wars were all three seasons(edit: I know G1 had a technical Season 4, but it was three episodes so come on). Sucks for those that really love Animated, but I can't wait to see what comes next.

    Until this is confirmed to be true or false. I think I'm just going to enjoy the present, and season three when it gets here.

    Who knows, maybe season three will be horrible and we'll be glad that Animated is ending.

    Put it in perspective...."G1" was only 4 seasons. Three seasons ain't bad for a cartoon. I hope it continues....a series with a decent plot, character development and actual drama.

    Real or fake, we must admit that 42 episodes IS a good lenght for cartoons nowadays, so if it ends we can be nothing but thankful that we got that far.

    All I can hope is that if the rumor is true, that the next show gets a similar direction to TFA, where both sides truly love the franchise and know what everybody would like to see.

    I think it is completely fair. Why should we have to watch utter crap like the new george of the jungle or that fuckwad show chowder instead of a show that has an installed fanbase, has good animation, and is written smart so that adults can enjoy it as much as kids.

    I smell a petition. Lets save our goddamn show!!!!

    Sales?

    Does anyone have sales figures for Animated toys? In the shops that I've visited (North Carolina, Las Vegas, San Francisco) Animated toys continue to be in heavy supply while the other pegs are largely empty. This was true even after the holidays when the stores are normally picked completely clean.

    While it may just be a case of shipping too much product, it may be that the Animated toys aren't selling well to the kids. That could be reason for a cancellation. I clearly don't have any hard evidence other than my personal experience, and I know that some will simply view this as a troll, but I am honestly curious.

    This would really suck. To me Animated is just getting to the meat of things. We've had one full season of build up, then the next season just starts taking off. Season 3 looks to be the start of an all out war with Autobots and Decepticons, with so many new characters and so many stories to be told. Unlike other recent TF series where season 3 feels like the final chapter on all we've seen so far, Animated on the other hand still feels like we're only mid way through the story. I hope they don't kill this saga before it's time.

    Good less money I have to spend, if there are less toys. Maybe we will get Transtech now.

    I'll be intensely disappointed if this is true. I'm not one of those that insists that my favourite series has to go on forever and ever and ever, but three seasons is a really underwhelming number for a show and creative team that clearly has plenty more mileage left in it. Those saying that three seasons is the norm for Transformers series clearly aren't looking at the numbers properly; G1 had 98 episodes and a movie over the course of its three seasons, Beast Wars had 52 (78 if you count Beast Machines), and the Unicron Trilogy had a whopping 156 episodes. With 39 regular episodes, that would make Animated just one TV movie ahead of filler series Robots in Disguise as the shortest US-airing TF series in history. In a world where Energon got 52 episodes, that just isn't right.

    Really hoping this doesn't turn out to be the case. :(

    The stores around me were cleaned out of pretty much everything Transformers related(besides old movie stuff) during the holiday season.

    How much stores in one area have isn't really all that reflective of the rest of the world.

    Stupid stupid stupid decision. Hasbro will likely lose my money after Animated. I'm sure someone will take my place, but this is the first Transformers line that's interested me since Beast Wars.

    I just got TFA Waspinator today...great toy.

    It's like Prince said, I suppose.

    All good things they say, never last. And love, it isn't love, until it's passed.
