    I would love if they did this, even as just padding until timeslots are filled. It'd be cool to see both those on TV.

    My understanding of the arrangement was that HUB would end up replacing Discovery Kids, so if you get that channel already, you'll still get Hub.

    And I recall seeing "blocks" of Discovery Kids programing pop up on local stations early weekend mornings in Iowa, so some of the programming may end up on other venues.

    If nothing else there is DVD like the Nicktoon Marvel shows I can't watch.

    Glad to know we finally got some info on the new show. However I've got to ask, what about the toys? Hasbro usually launches a toy line with a new show but we've not heard anything of a new toy line and with TF3 coming next year, it is even less likely Hasbro would split their resources to have a toy line for the show and also have resources work on the TF3 toys.

    We already know Power core Combiners is the filler line before TF3.

    I think the likelihood of this show going without toys is EXTREMELY low. To have TF sublines unsupported by media while simultaneously ignoring the media that is there would be unwise, and very unlike Hasbro.

    Bingo. Expect toys for the show by Christmas. Expect to see reveals of those toys by BotCon, at the latest.

    Wonder if they'll have paid ad's after midnight? Or room for more grown up entertainment.

    Like Vangelus's talk show and stuff

    I thought I remembered if you already get Disc. Kids..then you're good to go for the HUB.. with all those 10's I'm so hoping the new TF show is a 10 as well :popcorn

    I seriously doubt, after all this time, that they would actually revert back to that style of animation.

    It's piss-poor half-assed examples like thsoe that give CGI cartoons a bad name, when there's actually quite a few good ones. (Clone Wars?)

    Looks like I'll be watching it on YouTube.

    At least, the first few episodes...Evident movie-based design and hearing that it's CGI both make me cringe a little. The more I hear about this show, the less hope I have of finding something about it to like.
