    Yeah, I'd say gauging from his perceived complexity of transformation from the show model shown to us, he'll be a deluxe. Hasbro could surprise us, though-- but I REALLY doubt he'll be bigger than a Voyager.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he were a Deluxe - lots of Voyager Decepticons already, and Hasbro mentioned that they were trying to make some smaller scale tank TFs since they'd done so many big tanks.

    Did anyone bother to takes notes and post what was said during this portion of the event?

    I had no clue this information was told at botcon?

    What other characters where shown or talked about????

    Ok, here's another question for those who were at Botcon. The side-car for Prowl. Will it be sold by itself, or packaged with a re-release of the Deluxe class Prowl that we're getting in the first wave of Animated? There has been plenty of confusion over this, so lets see if we can get a definitive answer about this.

    ^ Prowl will be sold with his sidecar/armor at the Deluxe price point.

    The picture shown looked to be a regular Prowl with proto-gray remolded areas around the windshield (sharper "nose" to the motorcycle) and seat, plus the new sidecar.

    Ok. Hopefully he retains his ninja-stars when he gets the armour, as those are something I like from the regular release of him that we'll be getting. I'm also hoping that we get a look at his toy with the armour before I get the chance to buy a regular wave 1 Prowl. That way I cam make a good decision on whether to get regular Prowl, or wait for the upgraded Prowl.

    Ok, I've got two more questions (the more I think about them, the more questions come to my mind, lol). The Wreck-Garr toy that was shown, did it have open hands? or closed fists? Also, from what you could see, did he appear to have his backpack? Wold be cool to put some different randome things in there for him, lol. Thanks in advance :D .

    You have a point there, but I thought I might as well ask while I had the opportunity too (that and I'm a little impatient, lol). Here's another one, when is SDCC? The only info I know about it are some of the exclusives, lol.

    It's at the end of July, Hasbro will also be holding a shorter version of their panel at a TF convention in Toronto next month.

    That's right. Wonder if they'll have anything new to show to everyone by then?

    Ok, thanks. I was thinking it would be a while from now, but wasn't sure how much longer it would be. Hopefully we get some good sneak peaks from the Toronto convention, though that's still a month a way. Any answers out there for my questions about Wreck-Garr?

    He's been confirmed from Hasbro that he's a Voyager.

    Any answers out there for my questions about Wreck-Garr?

    Apologies for missing this.

    Anyways, can't remember on the fists, sorry. He does have his backpack, though. Honestly, he looks pretty much exactly like he does on the show. I couldn't find any difference whatsoever.
