Is it such a surprise?
But what happens if the movie tanks? Will Hasbro still pump out more Transformers? I guess if they change their designs to some "less realistic" They could still sell a lot of stuff.

When I read the title I was expecting to read they're coming out with a new line. But hey, more TF stuff is always good. Isn't it?

Gee, I really don't want to see more movie toys in the future, espeacially monkey scream. I hope they still make more of old TFs, along with more lines like Armanda, Cybertron, Beast Wars, etc, and with the new lines that don't look like creepy metal things that morph, but who knows maybe that will grow on me.

Hasbro will expand the Transformers brand? With a big budget Hollywood movie on the way? No shit Sherlock.

"Is it any coincidence that as soon as they revisit the original Transformers (G1) with the classics line they have their most profitable year ever?"
Is Classics really setting the world on fire in the US? They're doing okay over here (in Toys'r'us in the UK), selling about as well as Cybertron. What they lose in "only associated media being nostalgia-market DVDs" they gain in "not being repaints". Cybertron was a much wider range of better advertised stuff a with similar standard of engineering to the Classics- I would have expected them to have a lot more to with the big sales, myself.
Calling the movie toys "unwanted" seems unduly pessimistic given they're the main characters in a feature film with an associated ad campaign of what can only be described as "biblical proportions".

With any luck, this means more Classics. With any luck, Classics won't stop until every character from seasons 1-3 of G1 gets a facelift.
