    Classics are not dead but we won't see any new ones this year. They'll be on hiatus while the movie toys and some lame Energon recolors come out (most likely under the movie banner). Classics will most likely return next year with a few more recolors and a few all new molds (rumored to include Sideswipe, Prowl, and Cosmos--yes, Cosmos). No definitive word on whether this would be a part of or in addition to the new animated series.

    Y'know what I'd like to see?

    Hasbro working with some major Japanese anime studio to produce a more grown-up version of Transformers, based on the Classics design (but working in some G1 and Alternators). Not in lieu of a kiddie cartoon, but in addition to it. Something for those of us who can't watch more than two minutes of any of the 'toons since Beast Wars without bashing our heads against a wall in frustration.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    How cool would a deluxe sized, or "leader sized" SeaSpray be?

    I just thought of the minibot today for some reason, and how rare a hovercraft is.

    I think it would be awsome if they made SeaSpray in some realistic size and fully articulated him (gave him seperable legs, etc.)

    Does anybody like SeaSpray around here?
    BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.

    Seaspray isn't my favorite, but he's quite cool. I could go for a "Classics" figure of him.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I'd like a Seaspray but only as an Alternator or MPE

    only kidding, i'd definitely get a Classics version. Cosmos would be even better though...would love to see what they do with him.

    Dude, Bumblebee does not poop on people. He, in fact, skeets a hot, greasy load on to some soldiers. That is so not the same thing as defecating on them.

    Yes, he is a Camaro. Yes, he plays Devo. But, he does not poop at all in the movie-he blows a warm, greasy load. (No, seriously, according to the script I read, he does this. I am being totally serious here. Bumblebee, well, bumble-skeets. )



    On another note, a new Seaspray would be nice, but is unlikely.

    Thanks for the clarification. And I believe that is the Quote of the Day, sir.

    No Classics, no TF:Heroes, no nuthin'. The movie was the only thing shown there, and all but 2 pieces were in a "no photography" room even though they've been splashed all over the internet long before Toy Fair (probably a contract issue with Paramount). Anyway, it's no surprise there are no Classics, Hasbro said there wouldn't be a 4th wave when the line started, at least not contiguously.

    Both have been released in the UK, I believe, and they are the last to be released here whenever Hasbro gets around to it. The line is dead though, at least for foreseeable future of the next year.

    So, in the film, Bumblebee repeatedly poops on people to the outdated sounds of Devo?

    Does Megatron pee on humans and say, "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Starscream? I pity the fool!"?
    Yeah, this thing seems really goofy, I'm not sure if it's Hasbro's fault or Bay's movie, and from the preview I read about online, I'm beginning to think it's Bay and the movie is goofier than expected (why Autobots would need to HIDE in ROBOT MODE in someone's back yard makes no sense).

    Well... I was with you until that part about George Sr naked with his George Washington-lookalike wife.

    At this time, it seems Hasbro has nothing to sell to retailers in that area, so no reason to bring it to Toy Fair. All their current efforts are focused on the horrible movie's products.

    The problem is it has to be aimed at young teen boys at the latest if they want it to survive, but shows aimed at older kids do terribly these days - the current state of cartoons is in the toilet for anything that tries to take its audience seriously, look at the revamped Masters of the Universe, or Justice League's demise (scheduling was the symptom, not the initial cause), and look what they did to Batman. They go where the money is, and the money is in toy tie-ins, and toy tie-ins only appeal to 8 year old boys now, so cartoons only are aimed at those boys. Hasbro could try to buck the trend by putting their faith in making a decent show that's more mature and serious in content, but unless it hits hard every episode will be operating at a loss.

    Yeah, Seaspray was pretty cool, I dig hovercrafts even though something with a rubber skirt doesn't lend itself to robots too well. They made a Basic-sized hovercraft in the Cybertron line, but he had long arms which were awkwardly jointed so I couldn't give him as high marks as I wanted to.
