    So is the "Roll Out" and presumed leader class prime one and the same?
    I hope so.

    Bumperbots sound perfect for my soon-to-be 3-year-old, since he now watches the cartoon.

    Yeah, because I needed more reasons to love the Animated line. ^_______^

    Wow, that's a lot of Animated stuff that Hasbro has in the pipeline.

    I still think that the "Leader" Optimus Prime mentioned in the other source is really just the Roll-Out and Command version mentioned here, but either way I don't plan to get it. Hopefully there are at least some new legends molds instead of all being repaints, but, I'll probably get a couple anyways. The Bumper Bots and Activators don't really interest me at the moment, but, that could change once we start seeing pictures of them.

    "...spring loaded transformations."

    Hmmm, Animated Jumpstarters

    And a talking Prime...no thanks. Just give me the basic Voyager/Deluxe figures.

    I wish the movie would have brought back the Supreme Class instead. I'd much rather have a Supreme Blackout or Megatron, rather than have a too big version of Optimus clogging shelves.

    I really wonder if they're going to over-do it with the Animated line, as in too many different versions of characters (some haveing 2/3 versions in the main line as well as "Activators" and "Bumper Bots")

    I hope they aren't thinking it's going to sell with the same momentum as the movie line. (not saying that it will do badly, just not at the same level as a a line supporting one of the biggest movies of the year)

    Roll Out Prime is obviously that giant Prime we saw in the background of that Hasbro video awhile back.

    Prime seems to be the only one getting the treatment, so it's not really that big of a deal, imo. It's basically comparable to what Ultimate Bumblebee was for the Movie line, but it will probably be better (at least in some ways). Hopefully we get to see some pictures from the next event (basically the US version of this). It's supposed to be happening in the next couple of weeks, though I'm not sure exactley when.

    Most of that sounds like the kind of cheapy toys that I perfer not to spend my money on but this electronic prime could be entetraining and since it's only £50 rather then the £80 that ultimate Bumblebee cost he'll be all the more attractive to me.

    Hopefully the supreme sized Prime has a trailer and isn't just a blown up version of the deluxe toy. Would like a full sized firetruck, not just the incomplete front that just looks weird too me, since when do firetrucks just drive around with the cab.

    From what little of it we've seen, it looks to be just his cab and a giant axe (similar to that of the 2-pack, just a lot larger). I personally don't have a problem with him just being the cab (only plan to get the Voyager one anyways). It's not like it's modern day, or supposed to be realistic. It's set over 100 years into the future. That way it gives them more freedome with what their alt-modes look like.

    Maybe I'll get Activator Bumblebee and Prowl for scale's sake?
    Although I'll defiantly be getting the deluxe class versions.

    Too bad the supreme won't have a back end/trailer. They've made good gun emplacement/base modes in the past, as with Fire Convoy and Galaxy Convoy.
