Is this actually a franchise? A franchise has a continuity/ies associated with it in every other use we have. This has like 4, most of which predate Universe 2008. This feels more like an umbrella title for a product 'line' containing offerings from multiple franchises than than a franchise itself. -Derik 01:15, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Judging by the list of "franchises" on the Franchise page (Commemorative Series? Machine Wars?), yeah, this fits. Maybe we need to revise our definition. JW 01:41, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
As the guy who's put most of that list together, I will say that it includes every toy line, regardless of the amount of fiction associated with it or the universe that the fiction falls under. Some franchises are little more than toylines, but every toyline has some kind of fiction associated with it, even if it's just a lame quote for the character. Maybe that list is more toy lines than true franchises, but I don't know how or where you'd draw the line. But, re: Derik's concern, if "continuity" was the sole requirement for being a franchise, then BW and BM would get sucked up by G1. All the new Universe stuff is being marketed under a common packaging style and title -- that to me is the very definition of a franchise. -- Repowers 02:01, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
So, what do we call this on the front page? Universe 2008? --FFN 04:18, 18 February 2008 (UTC)


Sweet! (fangirl squeal!)

Think there's any chance in high heaven they *might* consider cgi-ing the rest of the '86 movie? I would sssssoooo love to see Soundwave like that!

As of Botcon...

This is shaping up to be a helluva toyline. I thought Classics spoiled us, but I daresay this is better.--RosicrucianTalk 02:46, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Wow... Hot Shot is getting a classics toy...

Please let it be a new mold... And have a reference to JaAm!11--Dynamus Prime 12:46, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

It is a new mold. They showed us an early prototype, and it comes with a new Jolt. --ItsWalky 12:50, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Aerial Rivals ?

Where'd we officially learn the identities of the Aerial Rivials (and did we learn about the K-Mart minicons?). Kyde said they'd be up of but they weren't yet last time I checked. -- 13:56, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
