    been following this over here...
    http://tformers.com/BotCon-2006-Hasbro-New-Product-Unveiling-IN-PROGRESS/6609/news.html

    big news:
    6" War Within Grimlock

    Alt Cadillac XLR cancelled, would have been Megatron (<--Blackstar reports below this may have been a joke re: the Cadillac being Megs)
    Ravage and hand-less Rumble last 2 alts before hiatus

    2 movie preview figures May 2nd, official rollout june 2(we knew that last part obviously, just there for context :p )

    No Classics Soundwave

    edit:
    "no comment" on the 3 "object-formers"...I'm still thinking these might be for the next series after the movie...

    Transformers: Heroes is just a working title.

    if they do more classics Cosmos, Jazz, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are on the shortlist.

    Interesting Tidbits:
    Legends of Cybertron (Legends of Classics now?) Fireflight (Cyb Jetfire redeco) was supposed to be Powerglide, but they couldn't get the name

    oh, there gallery is coming up: http://tformers.com/ig.php?mode=album&album=6610&dispsize=800&start=0

    Yay Grimmy! :D 

    And just as well on the Caddy Alt. There was enough bitching when Optimus Prime became a pick-up.

    yeah, while i was looking forward to it because it was a sweet car, i would have found a car Megatron pretty rediculous, especially when Runamuck/runabout and some of the Stunticons could still use some updating.
    I KNOW!!! :horse: 
    i need Ironhide and Ratchet in Classics like i need a grilled cheese sammich!

    I think that applied mainly to the movie stuff, as they also stated that Cliffjumper and Devastator would go into the classics display case at some point today.

    Man, Titanium is really becoming a cool line. Between this and Classics, there will hopefully be plenty of stuff throughout 07 for those of us who aren't fond of the movie aesthetics.

    normally I can understand it, like when they showed off Classics last year, but really doesn't sound like anything was shown that we weren't allready aware of???...

    Just for the sake of context, the Megatron comment about the Cadillac XLR was said as a joke, at least that's how it was taken amongst the crowd and the panel.
