    Really glad to see that DCUC made it this year, and with a little wiggle room! Surely MOTUC made it too, as you said!

    Here's to hoping for another fun-filled year of great toys! (Now let's start praying for 2014...)

    The longer we wait, the less I wanna hear what the update will be.

    When GI JOE: Retaliation was bumped, the "Deth of the etc" rhetoric was in full force. Thought the Hiss Tank would melt that day... and they're over there right now calling He-Man.Org "arrogant"...

Why not just enjoy it now and when it ends, it ends.
    Hasbro has killed many Transformers lines and or figures prematurely.

    ROTF Human Alliance figures were canned, even though they actually got produced.

    DOTM, Even though it was remade, the DOTM line was canned, and many figures were never released, even though they were produced. (Human Alliance Soundwave....etc)

    Reveal The Shield, was canned before they even released all the produced toys to mass retail only to have the remaining go to TJ Maxx.

    Transformers Prime First Editions, even though now they are coming back, many are not the same molds as originally intended for the line.

    Transformers Prime was merged with RID....

    Transformers Animated, canned before all the figures were released, only a final few produced figures made it to TRU only.

    Technically lines die all the time, but the brand may see new resurgence through rebranded figures, technically the lines did die.

    MOTU did not die in 30 years, but the MOTU, POP, NA & 200X lines did....

    Just like GI Joe has seen line after line after line, subscription based lines are no different than retail when it comes to getting canned, see Ghostbusters....
    Recent.... HATMOTU Beast Man & Evil Seed
    Wanted.... Filmation Mer-Man, Teela & Sorceress
    Needed.... MOTUC Lord Masque

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
