    I hate the Hasbro site. It always defaults me back to the UK one :(  What does it say?

    Hmm.. They're making a Jazz bumper battler.
    Some people might like that.

    If they make an Ultra Magnus one I'd buy it.

    "By the way, stay on the look out for the future of the Transformers Animated line. We may introduce new characters along with our more traditional ones, but there will always be homage to the G1 series mixed in (HINT, HINT)"

    interesting, the word 'may' suggests things are still developing, thats good news.

    Hopefully the (HINT, HINT) means Animated Predaking.

    There it is for those that get redirected.

    Soundwave looks awesome, in case anyone cares. Leader Megs still looks brick-like because he was posed horribly.

    It's annoying as all hell but there is a way around it, just go straight to the animated/universe etc page and find what you want from there.

    For the people that get redirected.
    The only new image is the Jazz Bumper Battler.
    All the rest are just stock images that have been used a hundred times.

    I might be wrong, bit I think the Grimlock pictures are new too. It's cool to see that Jazz will be getting a Bumper Bot, but I'll be sticking with his Deluxe version. If we get a Bumper Bot and/or an Activator version of Ultra Magnus, I'll probably get those along with the Leader (which I'll be getting one way or the other). I'm hoping that we get a look at a Leader Ultra Magnus prototype, as he's one of the Animated toys I'm looking forward to the most.

    I find by clicking on the link it takes me to the UK site, but clicking on it a second time gives me what I want.

    Man, are they going to be shocked when they realize Botcon is in Cincinnati, not in this Cincinatti town they keep talking about....
