Hasbro: Fate of Animated To Be Revealed at Toy Fair Next Week
bwbm - Thursday, February 05, 2009

After we saw many drunk TFormers Community members after learning about the rumor that the Transformers Animated series will cease to exist after season 3, we were determined to find out some sort of answer for you.

We reached out to Hasbro's press corps and asked them exactly what was going on here.

Sadly, we didn't get a definitive answer, but they did respond that we will "learn more at Hasbro's Collector-Fan Media Day event on [February] the 14th!"

The Collector Fan Media Day will be the precursor to the American International Toy Fair 2009 in New York, which is slated to begin on February 15, 2009 and run until Wednesday the 18th.

According to Hasbro, Fan Media Day "allows media guests to gather invaluable information from each of Hasbro’s boys brands, engage representatives from each of the brands in a Q&A, and tour the Hasbro showroom to capture photos all the products you’ve been anxiously awaiting to see." and sister-sites will be there to obsessively cover both events, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, please put the bottle down. Your liver will thank you.

I wont be shedding any tears if Ani gets cancelled, it woul just mean we get a newer and most likely better show out of it (Alternity...anyone?) I whole-heartedly agree AEC was by far the only recent series that caught my interest, namely because of Energons seamless formula (robots=cell shaded CG... read more

I've said it before I'll say it again, translated shows suck. I don't blame the writers set on the project, Freefall666's sig is proof that you can only do so much with Japan when they're left unattended in these matters. I can blame the corporate higherarchy though for being ... read more

See, my experience was similar...except, I was into it from the onset, then my son reached an old enough age to get into it. With the release of the DVDs, this is total bonding time for the two of us...kicking back in the recliner watching

I've watch most all of the available transformers series here in the states and even some poorly translated imports; headmasters dubbed in English was horribull. And to be honest i wasn't a big fan of the cartoons other than the famed g1 series and the beast wars saga.That changed with the i... read more

Transformers Animated seems to still hold a significant place in people's hearts, because Chris McFeely has posted to Twitter that "Trial and Error," the TFNation-exclusive fan-produced conclusion to the Animated story, will be seeing a second printing due to overwhelming demand! Excellent news for those of us who couldn't go to England to get a copy. Keep reading for the announcement!
Transformers Animated debuted in the US in late 2007 with the TV show on Cartoon Network. While we're several months from the exact anniversary of Animated, in Japan a new art book has been released, featuring works by various artists celebrating the series that still holds a special place to many fans. Masabon has shared a selection of interior pages from the book on his personal Photobucket account so that all those of us outside of Japan can have a taste of what's inside. Photobucket is less than user-friendly, so we've mirrored the pages in our gallery - keep reading to take a look and for a list of artists! UPDATED: Masabon wanted us to be certain that it was understood that this is an unofficial fan work, created by fans and without participation from Hasbro or TakaraTomy. Thanks to him for the clarification!
It's not unusual for figures to sit at pharmacies like Rite-Aid, where Deluxes were cresting $20 back when they were $12-13. But a find by Ben Yee, of BWTF fame, may well take the cake: he just found Transformers Animated Deluxe Lockdown!
