    Cool. I was thinking we'd get a live feed, but couldn't remember if anything had been said about it or not. I'll more than likely just edit this post with my opinion on the new stuff as it's said.

    Edit: Ok, here are some of my thoughts:

    Activators Cliffjumper- No real surprise there. Doesn't really interest me.

    Deluxe Blurr- He looks kinda cool, but, not something I'll get.

    Voyager long arm/Shockwave- I'm actually kinda dissapointed in this guy. I'll most likely not get him.

    Shadow Blade Megatron- When I first read the info about it, I was thinking it would be the Voyager mold. Now that I see it's the Leader mold, I won't be getting it. If I get that mold at all, it'll be the original deco.

    RE animated dinobots- Good to know they want to put in more. Can't wait to see the eventual toys for them if they do follow threw with this.

    Showing deluxe hound and ravage- Both are really great. Not perfect, but definetly buyable. Can't wait to see more pictures of these two.

    targetmaster deluxe Cyclonus- Both are really great too. Again, not perfect, but definetly on my to-get list.

    Deluxe Cheetor- Not bad looking, but, not something I see myself buying.

    universe voyager inferno- Bit of a nice surprise here. After looking at the pics, he's going on my to-get list one way or the other. Can't wait to see more pictures of him. The no ladder thing doesn't bother me. He's awesome enough withought it.

    universe legends brawn and beachcomber- These two look pretty cool. I might get them, I might not.

    Universe legends Bumblebee- Interesting to see, but not on my to-get list.

    Legends Cosmos- His arms look like they won't pose well, but he's on my list no matter what. It's nice to see he's finally lost some weight, lol

    BM Cheetor VS Tankor Robot heros- Interesting, but, definetly not on my to-get list.

    RID Prime, super mode, vs RID Megatron- These have been on my to-get list since I first heard about them, and they still are. Can't wait to see more pictures of them.

    People want classics seaspray- I imagine we could at least get a Legends figure out of him.

    Headmasters,"Better than a Maybe"- Good news to my ears. I wouldn't mind seeing a new mold Headmaster or two.

    Animated Omega Supreme? No plans yet.- Slightly surprised by this, though not entirely.

    Ani Soundwave - May have another "instrument" in his arsenal- Sounds cool to me, though I don't want to have to buy two Soundwave figures to get both Laserbeak and this new instrument.

    Here's hoping they put some of the new figures out in the display cases. I wouldn't mind some more up close and personal pictures of Hound and Inferno. Thanks for the life coverage. It's nice to see the site during a convention withought any sign of an error.

    To be completely honest, I'm slightly disappointed with the panel overall. I was hoping we'd get to see some glimpse of Animated Wreck-Garr and 25th Ann. Hot shot w/Jolt. In the end, I'm still happy, as I'd rather see some new stuff, than nothing at all.

    I'm going to guess the megatron repaint is the voyager class.
