    I was hoping for a TF Mighty Mugg this year, DAMN! Doubt Ironhide will ever get released now.

    Thursday should be a really interesting day. I'm hoping to get a glimpse at the TFP toys revealed at Botcon. Most especially the Voyager figures of Optimus, Bulkhead, and Starscream.

    I don't know why everybody's getting excited to see Prime toys. Outside of Voyager Optimus and Bulkhead, as well as Deluxe Cliffjumper and maybe the Vehicon (wasn't that said to be a grey prototype?), the only new molds were 2012 releases, which I don't think Hasbro would unveil to anyone except the hardcore fans (read: BotCon goers) this early.

    On the same note, does Hasbro usually put out the good stuff on display for preview night, or do they wait until the day of the panel?

    Well, we'll probably see a ton of new movie toys though since the movie's come out - we know they were holding a LOT back at Botcon due to embargo.

    That excites me quite a bit.

    I eagerly await to see what news Hasbro will bring. They're certainly going to have to show off at least ONE big thing, considering the lack of things they were able to reveal at Botcon.

    Well, to my knowledge we haven't even SEEN anything beyond the preview figures and the little human figurines, and Prime is the only other TF series slated for upcoming release other than the never-ending movie lines (no word on Generations thus far). Plus, I'm curious to see what the figures look like since I want a TFP Cliffjumper and Bulkhead BADLY. I'd also probably end up taking up troop building and buy the crap out of the Vehicon mold because it's such an awesome generi-drone.

    Generations Deluxe Springer and Arcee is what I want to see and I think I would be happy with my Classics collection. A few Junkions and Wave fillers would be nice as well.

    Hopefully we'll be getting a look at HA Soundwave, Dlx Dino and Q.

    So nothing g1 related this year? No reissue, g1 mighty mugg, etc? Only movie related garbage and a TF's Prime fig I have no interest in either? Highly disappointing to say the least. Hopefully I can snag the starscream skystriker and I guess that's it for me this year.

    I'd probably skip Ultimate Prime. Sounds like the difference is a box and sticker.

    here's what i'd like to see.

    deluxe - soundwave, dino, que, and the other two dreads.
    voyager- nothing really. a voyager dread would be pretty cool, a new ratchet mold.. but that's never going to happen.
    leader- megatron. maybe a shockwave, but definitely megatron.
    human alliance- soundwave. i really hope we get a dino, and we NEED a topspin.

    other than the ones already announced.. i'd like to see at least two things from that list as surprises.

    I hope to see Deluxe Soundwave and Mirage. Also upcoming Generations and HOPEFULLY we get a glimpse of some more TFP toys... especially Knockout!

    I'm kind of hoping at some point they make a more movie-accurate Deluxe Roadbuster that goes with Topspin. of course the chances of that actually happening are about as high as the chance that a woman that finds me attractive exists in this universe, I.E. very, very low, but it would still be cool.
    Other than that, I hope they show Deluxe Soundwave, Wheeljack, Leadfoot and Mirage. A new Voyager Ratchet (NOT another bloody repaint of 2007 Ratchet!) would be nice too.

    As for Prime, well, I'd like to see something other than Deluxe Arcee, Starscream, Bumblebee and the Optimus-Megatron twin-pack with the Jack, Miko and Raf figurines. If they just show us those again and nothing new I'll be angry.

    I find it ironic that they designed a Transformers Prime packaging you could wear around your neck ala Flava Flav. For an event in Cali. I suggest none of you wear red or purple hats around the event. You might get capped.
