    Wow that RO&C Optimus better be huge for 50 bucks! I don't even think it comes with a trailer, no?

    Man, Hasbro are huge, they've got so many blockbuster movie licences pinned down now (not to mention their own licensing division) I wonder if they can become the number 1 us toy company before long.

    Not much news on TF's though, really it's just another teaser. I hope they aren't going to be hiding behind a load of closed doors at the event.

    I could care less about the animated toys. Hopefully they will have new Universe (Classic 2.0) stuff.

    I know that this is a common mistake made by American English speakers but it really bugs me.

    The phrase is 'I couldn't care less' meaning you could not care any less than you do. It is to be used to express disinterest in the subject matter. This would be correct in this context if you really dislike the Transformers Animated figures.

    'I could care less' implies that you have not yet reached the point where you couldn't care less and therefore must care to some degree about the subject matter. This would be correct in this context if you really like the Transformers Animated figures and are looking forward to getting them.

    It sounds like the franchise is on solid ground for at least another year even if there are parts of the toyline some people are not into, it means growth which positively impacts all aspects.

    So this is all around good news.

    Cool, hope there's some good TF stuff shown. I mainly care about Universe but I'm also interested in seeing osme Animated stuff to solidify which ones I'm skipping.

    I hope its a leader class. It would be nice to see it have the latter half of the firetruck.

    I am looking forward to the classics 2.0 stuff. I hope that Sideswipe and Sunstreaker get the G1 clones treatment, but in reverse (Same vehicle, different robot).

    I'm willing to bet that Rollout and Command Optimus Prime does not come with a trailer and is packaged in robot mode in a box the size of Ultimate Bumblebee. I hope that leader class Optimus Prime does come with a trailer. I understand that it isn't cost effective to do a trailer, but if you won't have a toy with a trailer then don't do a cartoon with a trailer. Everytime that I see the trailer in the cartoon, it saddens me that we don't seem to be getting a toy of it.

    Both Galaxy Convoy and Fire Convoy were fire trucks and the entire vehicle was made into a toy. It's weak sauce if Leader Animated Prime is a cab only.

    Personally, I'm still pretty sure that the "Leader" Optimus Prime is really just the Roll-Out and Command Optimus Prime. We are technically getting an Animated Optimus Prime with a "trailer". It's the Voyager version of him. Yeah, it's not the full trailer, but it's close enough, imo. The only report that has said anything about a Leader Optimus Prime figure also didn't mention anything about the RO&C OP, while the other report from the same show mentioned the RO&C OP, but nothing about a Leader OP. Personally, I'm glad that we aren't getting his full trailer. All it would do is sit around and collect dust (it's not like it combines with him, or forms some kind of really cool defense base).
