    I wonder at what point during the marathon will they have the sneak peak for Transformers Robots In Disguise and how big of sneak peak will it be?

    It's almost like nothing happened in the 26 years between the movie and Prime!

    Will they play the preview at the end of the marathon or during? Good thing I'm not doing anything this year :D

    This is crap! Why is 5 hours of this "marathon" all Rescue Bots???:mad 

    There aren't enough words to describe how much I loathe that show... it's even painful to hear from the backseat DVD player... :banghead: 

    EDIT: You know what I'd prefer, actually? I like it when they intersperse the programs, so you get variety. Try a G1 episode, Rescue Bots, then Prime, and then how about some BW? I mean, it'd be nice if it wasn't a RB marathon. I guess by nap time, we get some better shows? :lol

    So, a movie that kept getting referenced in Prime, the movie follow-up for Prime, and the Prime spin-off still airing it's second season, that sure does show all 30 years of Transformers.

    It's awesome Hasbro is doing this. Too bad I don't have the Hub.

    Jeez. Where's Beast Wars, Armada, Cybertron, Animated, or, at least, the first Bay movie?

    This is kind of shaping up to be a pretty lame anniversary celebration...

    It's cool that Hasbro/The Hub is doing this. I hope kids enjoy it. That is, those who have the Hub Network and aren't out camping, fishing, hiking, and doing other outdoorsey thing or out of town.

    I have my mad collection of TF DVD's that include all of G1, the 1986 movie, the three Michael Bay movies currently out on Blue-Ray, and Transformers Prime on DVD. I just need the Animated series and I'm set. :D

    Come on, everyone - don't you read any of the professional reviews for the live-action movies? There was nothing between the 1980s TF franchise and the 2007 film. *sarcastic*

    A marathon of Rescue Bots? It's an okay show, I guess, but why not more variety. Say, have More Than Meets The Eye Parts 1, 2, and 3, followed by The Transformers: The Movie, followed by Beast Wars Pars 1 and 2, then Transform and Roll Out! Parts 1-3, then Darkness Rising Parts 1-5, then you have the first episode of Rescue Bots, and conclude the marathon with Predacons Rising. Something, at least, that acknowledges more than just 1986 and 2012-13. Don't get me wrong, the G1 movie was spectacular, and Transformers: Prime was amazing, but a lot of fans would also like something from more than just three shows.

    Haven't seen anything yet, and I'm pretty sure they'll play it at the end of Predacon's Rising. Seems only fitting to show the first look at the new show at the end of the last one.

    Watching this movie due to a hurricane trashing my BBQ plans. Must admit , it's pretty good when you got a buzz on.
