    NO!!!
    We had the horrific show of terror with the unicron trilogy, and that lasted for 4 YEARS, and your telling me that animated will only last for a year and a half? This is the best TF show we have had since BW.

    I pray this is false. And if the reason for it's cancellation is because of CN, well, I don't think it's possible for me to hate CN anymore than I do already.

    Not really.

    Ben 10, Spectacular Spiderman and alot other recent action shows had 13 or less episodes each season.

    I just wanna say that it don't matter to me one way or the other I have seen 3
    Animated shows so far and one was with the Constructicons,the other was Prowl and
    Lockdown when he becomes a samurai,and the one where the dinobots are on that
    island.To me the show was ok,but no where near G1's or Beast Wars.Plus the figures
    are just not my taste,sure Grimlock,Prowl,and Megatron are about the only figures
    that I really like,wait and maybe Jazz,the rest bite,and probably the last figure I'll get
    from the animated line is that Samurai Prowl just release,and thats it for me.

    So if the rumor is true then I won't be happy or sad.That said I rather have TF's
    that are more complex transforming like the movie line.

    I hope that's not the case. This is the first series since G1 that I've ever put my faith in unlike the past few incarnations.

    And it should be made very clear that whatever comes after this had better be worth my time and not at the behest of some whiny naysayers trying to make the franchise into something it's not.

    We'll see.

    Um remember people, Justice League only lasted 3 seasons... and then was kept alive for another 2 as Justice League Unlimited. TFA may be down the same route... Headed for a revamp (probably to sell new toys.) Ultimately, the show dies when the toy line dies. Or perhaps Hasbro wants to switch networks to reach a wider audience? Take off your sack cloth and ashes people. Usually when people give answers like, "I can't discuss that now", it means there are legal matters at hand.




    It's not the toy sales bub. Animated Toys are selling, just because you see them in stores doesn't mean they're not selling, especially in an era of Internet shopping, and Hasbro Toy Store, which regularly has certain Animated toys out of stock. I wish people would realize that just because YOU see them in YOUR area, or a collective group of areas, there are still other states, several other countries and many more resources that are selling these toys.

    Movie toys were continually on the shelves... because they were restocking them after selling out. I mean everytime I go into the supermarket I see milk, so milk must not be sellling.... :rolleyes:  :lol

    Aww, that sucks if it's true. Three seasons sounds pretty average, though.

    Oh well.

    Animated never did want to live forever.

    They want to do a cartoon version of the movie to replace Animated.

    Is this is actually true then this will be the second big mistake Hasbro has ever made after killing Optimus Prime. This serie has made fans really enthoustiatic since years. Not change even a bit. We could use a long running cartoon for once. Always coming up with a new cartoon or era. Really annoying.

    You have a winning team. Stick with for a while.....

    How can that be? Doesn't Turner own all? :D  Seriously, though, there really isn't another market for them. Fox dropped toons. CW is a Turner network. (I think I got that right and not backwards)

    As for my $.02, I like the show. I'll miss it when it's gone. Oh, wait, I've missed it for MONTHS!!! It could be the time gap between seasons. I don't know exactly when the last new one aired, but it's been WAY TOO LONG. Just my opinion, though.

    Wow are you kidding me? This is the 1st cartoon since G1 where I care for all the characters, even the humans. Not only is this sad to me, but will be to my wife as well who loves Bulkhead and Jazz. She actually looks forward to watching every single episode. This news is like a really close friend/family member who is moving away and not coming back. I hope this isn't true. I care more about this cartoon than ROTF. If it takes me to buy every single Animated figure and not movie to save the show I will. I'll take out a loan if need be. Seriously how does crap like American Dad and Family guy stay on?

    I really don't want this to happen, yet i'm curious what would come after Animated, if anything at all.

    Nice thought. But all we can is hope otherwise.

    Well, this sucks.

    Animated was looking to be the best TF series we've ever had.

    Maybe they're going to have a new series after S3?
