I always thought it would be cool to juxtapose windows 95-era computer imagery with fantasy elements like magic and spirits.

Hasbro is ‘delaying’ Arcee and Chromia. No word on Windblade.
I’m sad. And mad. Because it’s most likely because they know those ugly movie toys won’t sell, so if they take the Generations line away we won’t be distracted and be forced to buy the bayverse uglies. You know Hasbro, people would buy them if they looked decent!
It’s actually the reverse problem when it comes to movie vs non-movie toys.
Movie toys sell like fucking hotcakes, and stores know it. They end up preferring them over non-movie toys when they make orders, which is why it can be hard to find the late waves of a line before a movie line. As much as Hasbro would like all the toys they devote resources towards to come out, it’s ultimately the stores that decide what is released in what quantity. Hasbro’s had trouble making certain exclusives because stores didn’t want them, and they’ve had to restructure cases to make sure the toys get out to the fans when stores refuse to order enough of them (or any at all).
Stop fucking about and give me my badass ladybots you dicknuggets
As sad as it is, it is true. Most of the “casual” buyers buy movie toys, and it really sells much more than the classic line, which targets the much less in number “hardcore” buyers. It’s especially so in areas where people can’t get/read IDW comics easily such as non-english speaking countries. Most people only know the movie, so they only buy movie toys.
However, they might be attracted to the classic line while picking up movie toys, and some of them might get into the comic. So in the end, the movies help the classic line/IDW comics. As much as I hate the movies for it’s worse and worse stories (I still like the first one though), it does help more people have the chance to know IDW G1 comic and the classic lines did do well in the past few years. So I see it as a necessary evil. As long as the movie keeps the TF brand fresh and famous, it means more potential IDW G1 comic readers, thus more potential IDW G1 toys for us eventually.
I want my ladybots too, but I’d rather let them avoid the popular frenzy of TF4 and get them later than the classic line being sidelined because most of the people will choose the movie toys first. I do think it will be nice if they put some old waves of classic toys with pack in comic for sale to catch the eyes of movie toys buyer. Like the Deluxe Bumblebee toy and his SL comic because everyone knows Bumblebee XD
