They weren't ever announced, they were leaked. Things which are announced can and have been cancelled without notice, so something which hasn't even officially been announced easily could be. But I'm not even saying they're outright cancelled, though pushed back and re-evaluated seems likely. I wouldn't be surprised if they became exclusives going forward. Hasbro really fucked up their viability at mass market retail badly. Monsters of the day are a niche within a niche, so they needed to come out of the gate strong to ensure every possible person collecting this line would want them. Not painting faces was moronic, as was making them in a divisive scale no one asked for.
