Yes, Shortround saw a commercial if I recall, its one thing I think will hurt this line, kids will lose interest by the time the toys make it to shelves and the shows rating will dive down so low it would be a joke.

Like animated or hate animated, you’ve got to admit Hasbro messed up big time on getting the toys out there.

There has been no mention of date. Originally the time frame was summer. but who nows.

June seems a little to far away, considering the cartoon is already out. So I'd say no later than April. Or else by the time they do release the figures, nobody's gonna remember Prime's Cybertronian Mode, or why we have a Dr. Sumdac's Lab Playset with Meg's head and hand. (Just made that one up :grin: .)

Animated was a joke when the designs first came out. The longer we gotta wait for animated toys the better.

They're too busy cranking out movie repaints apparently.

Someone recently found that TRU Canada computers were listing the toys to arrive late April-mid May.

It actually looks like they’re doing a whole lot nothing if you ask me. All I’m finding in stores now is old stuff, will I ever be so lucky as to find Camshaft?

The "official" word from Hasblow is Animated will come in June, after 6 months of Movie repaints.

But I doubt anyone truly believes we will have to wait that long.
Besides it's better to have 2 separate lines of TF's on shelves, they take upo more shelf space and can be seen easier then!

Personally, I can't believe that they are waiting so long. Even June is too long in my opinion. They should have had the toys on store shelves at the very least a few weeks after the show premiered.
