Transformers: Animated continues to be the line that just won't die! Artist Marcelo Matere recently updated his twitter account with a very interesting status update. It seems he's been working on an official Transformers: Animated project:

He remains tight lipped about exactly what the "official stuff" is, but there are multitude of possibilities: Something for BotCon 2012? Transformers: Animated Season 4 comic? Art for the still unreleased Transformers: Animated Season 3 DVD?

What? Did you say "Just finished box art for Animated Omega Supreme and he will be released by next month?"

Best news I've heard all day. All I ask is that it has NOTHING to do with Botcon. Season 3 DVD cover, Season 4 comic... something I can get in my hands!

That is good news. I've been trying to get my son the season 2 dvd but everywhere I look it's 3 times the price it should be. Hopefully they are planning on a complete series dvd set.

I would be a very, very, very happy monkey with either a TFA Box set, OR a season 4 comic.

The Omega Supreme thing would be awesome, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

I know the toys are most likely dead. Dvd Box art seems the most likely, but a Season 4 comic series would be nice too. I'm glad to see there is more support out there for Animated.

The newer toys aren't dead, but in limbo. I say this because we have seen images of both in-hand loose and packaged sampled of several of them. Not to mention how some got TakaraTomy releases proves that they do exist.

It's just a matter of finding a home for them in retail to release them. The problem is that the stores all want the newest stuff and would not carry something from an older line that won't sell as well.

You referring to Winged Prime and Snorkel Kit Bumble Bee and the red Grimlock and such right? I know there are some toys out there that never saw US release, but like you said, stores don't want older merch. With the movie lines and Prime on the horizon, it doesn't seem likely to me there will be a mass release in any country. That's why I said dead. Even though there are some out there, if no one sells them, I can't buy them. Which sucks.


*edit. Perhaps lumped into a future Universe sub line, that's a possible avenue for release.

Many want Hasbro to lump them into a Generations-style toyline (since Generations itself is continuing), but that'd only get the Deluxes out and available. Unless Hasbro's willing to expand Generations beyond the Deluxe range, it'll be harder to get the remaining Voyagers.

No doubt. I did pick up the 3 scout and 3 minicons in Generations style packaging. Granted that is the wrong direction as far as size, but it does demonstrate a willingness to expand. Ultimately, it's a shame, that Wing Prime is awesome.

Though, those Scouts and Mini-Cons may be in red packaging, but they don't say "Generations" on them and are thus counted as part of the suffix-less 2010 "Transformers" toyline (that grew to become the Reveal the Shield subline imprint).

True. In my own little collection, the "Classics" lines (I refuse to use the acronym) have been lumped together because of their common thread. Whatever shape the next Universe sub line takes, I hope a few Animated figures, and not just repainted or re-released deluxes, make it. Like the Blackout I foolishly passed on at last year's Botcon

TFA Needs to return! It was never finished, and needs to be! to all you haters out there, to each his own, but it had a legit storyline, and a human ally that came in as a good strong link in the final days of animated. megatron is not defeated, and several questions remain un answered!

Megatron is locked in the slammer. As of now, he has not yet broken out and can currently be considered defeated.

Though, yes, there is still much more to tell, but most of it has been explained in the awesomely glorious Allspark Almanac II book.

Me too! I want to get more than season 1 on DVD! I know you can find season 2 still but it's overpriced. My son is growing up on Prime, G1, and this series (if they'll ever release the other DVDs).

Your best bet would for it to be produced in comic form rather than cartoon form.
