  1. It is their intention to continue at least the toyline through 2015, but also they cut Animated short by 2 years even with the 4 year commitment. GI Joe Renegades was the latest entry and the second action franchise show in a row for Hasbro to cut short without conclusion.

    My real question is however, when will Hasbro air a new series for Transformers? Will it be a year after the Transformer 4 movie or would they seriously wait until 2016?
