    I wasn't sure weather to start a new thread for these or which other thread to put them into, but anyway here are the promised videos from OzFormers Griffin (shooting) and Paulbot (encoding and uploading).

    Those are very cool! I love the Bumper Battlers, the SFX make them pretty appealing. I especially like the homage to G2 Optimus Prime's "I am Optimus Prime" soundbite.

    That video of Roll-Out and Command OP really doesn't showcase the toy very well.

    I like Activator Bumblebee and the video replete with Ultra Magnus homage.

    As for the Bumper Battlers, I think Marty McFly said it best...
    "Maybe you guys aren't ready for that yet, but your kids are gonna love it."

    It certainly doesn't, but should have been done on a bigger surface. The Hasbro reps would sometimes do it on the floor, but you get the basic idea though - the top half rotates about 6 times to reveal the arms and head, and then the legs are pulled out to the sides at the hips and then folded down. The articulation on the toy is VERY LIMITED, but you get that with any heavy-gimmick toy.

    I was actually very surprised to hear those small bumper battlers playing heaps of different lines. Usually we get 3 or 4, but it seemed like each had 8-12 lines each.

    While I'm here, I don't think I mentioned how grateful I was for Hasbro and the Senior Product Manager Kristin Hamilton for allowing us to cover the event. Being a Trade Show event, they could have easily said no to us fans, but were instead very helpful and accommodating. Huge thanks.

    those bumper battlers are gonna sell way better than the cyber slammers, the BB one is pretty cool. the ROC-Op doesn't seem so great, but I bought Ultmate BB, so I guess it comes down to pricing...

    That Roll Out & Command Op's axe is AWESOME. The actual prime doesn't look half bad.

    Activators BB is great. Might get him in favour of Deluxe 'bee. Bumper Battlers are gonna be huge with the kids. I can already picture the kids playing with them in the store.

    Activators=TOY CRACK.

    Damn those are swell. I love how Bumblebee's proportions and squatted head are so reminscent of G1 cartoon Bumblebee's animation model.
