    Not too much to say yet. If like previous years, Transformers-specific press release should be coming soon.

    Not much, but at least we have the more specific press release to look forward to in the near future. Can't wait to see what they show this year :D

    They're really pushing those RPM's, I wonder if they just want a piece of Hot Wheels market share.

    Well, Mattel's weak right now brandwise, aren't they?

    What better a time to press the advantage and attempt to gain inroads in one of Mattel's biggest sellers?

    Unless we see more decepticon cars/normal vehicles then its only right to say this line will be dominated by autobots.

    So it really looks like all we're getting for atleast a year or longer is nothing but Movieverse, its a shame seeing Universe and Animated have produced far superior characters and toys

    I'm glad to see Hasbro is canceling the Animated line in favor of movie TFs that don'T tf.

    Maybe Hasbro can also invade our living rooms with Toys that actually have QUALITY CONTROL.

    Or perhaps they like saving money for not having any quality control anymore.

    I can see the stickers on the package now:

    "Sticky paint apps for custom figure making!"
    "Sloppy paint apps for multiple color variant figures!"

    Hasbro Guy A: Ya know, 20 years ago, kids hated the Action Masters.
    Hasbro Guy 2: Well, the opposite of hate is love. So, what's the opposite of Action Masters?
    Hasbro Guy A: Well, the Action Masters were non-transforming Transformers robots, so the opposite is Transforming Transformers, right?
    Hasbro Guy 2: WRONG! The opposite is non-transforming Transformers VEHICLES! GET ON IT!

    Yeah, I like how they said "do not CONVERT" instead of "do not TRANSFORM'.

    Who do they think they're fooling?

    F'ing idiots.

    Bummer, I really don't dig the movie line designs, and was hoping that their would at least be some new animated figure news at the toyfair.
