I was really hoping for Sludge and the real Snarl to be put in. I really would have loved to own all five of the dinobots in Animated form. :sad:

I don't think Season 3 will be the end of it. It just seems they have a lot to explain. They can't just end it without tying up the loose ends.

Anyways good read and can't wait for Botcon to see more information get spilled. Hopefully an Animated Constructicon toy display this time around.

I have a feeling that it might be "ending," but the next series is a direct follow-up. The only Transformers series that hasn't really had a direct follow-up was RID.

They're being very, very vague.

G1 didn't have a follow-up (in America, that is).

It's called Beast Wars :roll:

My feeling is that Animated is ending after Season 3 saddly, as it was shown a couple years ago that the movie francise is more important to them as just in case they have another situation like the first movie where we ended up with wave after wave of repaints and redecos, that they can pimp those out without hurting the Animated francise at the same time.

My hope is that they give it a year or so to gat the second movie thru all the stores, get a a filler universe series 4 to fill the gap and at Botcon 2010 they announce Transformers: Animated Heroes (or something like that) and restart things in fall 2010.

Nah, Beast Wars was its own thing until the season 2 finale.

It's not a "sequel" to G1, it's a "spinoff" of G1. There is a difference.

That can be argued. We could say Generation 2 or Beast Wars. Even still, if we do allow it, 6 out of 8 of the series we've had in the US have had or been a follow-up.

I just finished reading the interview....AND never before have wanted to grind my teeth so much! He keeps hinting that something more is gonna be done with TFA after season 3. Though the fact he wants to put the brick (Grandus) into the show is kinda funny.

But, still to damn many hints that something after Season 3. Wish they'd just spit out what there going to do with it!

It sounds like they will, but it won't be until Botcon.

Agreed and hopeful. :grin:

While G2 could be considered the sequel toyline, it didn't have an actual cartoon to go with it. Its cartoon was still G1 epiasodes but with newly-added special effects.

Beast Wars, however, was a spin-off, not a sequel.
