Based on the news from Toy Fair, this seems to be for the new line of simplified toys, as they said that "Generations" would cover everything for "Ages 18 and Up" crowd while "Robots in Disguise" would be for the "Ages 4 to 10" (and "Rescue Bots" for "Ages 2 to 4").

So I suppose an actual War for Cybertron 3 is wishful thinking?

Rise of the Dark Spark seems to be what we're getting instead. Gotta promote that new movie and all.

I was afraid of that. I mean. Rise of the Dark Spark looks really good, but I had hoped for a sequel.

If there were to have been a sequel, I could imagine two possiblities:
  • A game starring the Wreckers, Dinobots, and a small handful of others fighting off the remaining Decepticon forces led by Shockwave.
  • A game featuring the Ark-based Autobots on the run from the Decepticons, going to different colony worlds such as Velocitron and Junkion, in search of the AllSpark and the Artifacts of the Primes.

Maybe Robots in Disguise is going to be the name of the new TV series

We already had a show called that. The name refers to the selection of simplified toys for the ages 4-10 crowd.

We also already had two toylines by that name so I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro decided to further confuse things. :lol:

Two? There was the 2001-2003 one, but what was the other?

You're not thinking of the Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise line are you? Cuz the "Prime" part of that title makes all the difference. ;)

Yes I was, because while it did have the 'Prime' headline it still caused some confusion on the boards before people adopted the 'PRID' identifier. Younger fans who weren't really familiar with the original Car Robots/Robots in Disguise line were content to just call it RID at first.

Plus, we now have an IDW comic called Robots in Disguise so I don't think Hasbro really cares if reusing the name causes any mixups and I'm really not surprised they're using it for a toyline again.

Not that I can blame them, it is the whole premise and original tagline, after all.
