    Looks like "automorph" technology is going to be called "Mech Alive" for the movie figures.

    Sounds good to me. Not a perfect name for the gimmick, but not any worse than Automorph. That Prime looks interesting. I wander what size class it is. Is it just me, or is that orange thing to the left part of a sword? Would be interesting if this was a new mold Voyager class figure.

    Ultra, I think, but possibly leader, unless they're giving electronics to voyager class figures.

    Hard to say. I would guess Leader if he was more detailed, but I still wouldn't be surprised if it was. I personally hope we get a new mold Voyager class figure of Prime. I won't have a problem if they also make a new Leader class mold, but I personally would rather buy a Voyager than a Leader. Ultra would be interesting, though not much better than a Voyager, imo.

    Electronics? I may be missing it, but I don't see anything in that picture that says, or shows, anything about electronics.

    Not sure. Some of the details look like he's smaller than a Leader class figure, but the electronics would seem to confirm he's bigger than a voyager. It could well be a Leader figure, I don't have that info.

    Bah, Mech Alive is a bad name for the gimmick. Reminds me way too much of that ultra-creepy "Baby Alive" toy.

    I've been kind of hoping for a new mold Deluxe Optimus.

    At least then I'd have more of an excuse to pick it up, and it'd make a decent counterpart for deluxe Bonecrusher.

    Whatever this new thing is, it looks promising. To be honest, 'Automorph' sounded better to me than 'mech-alive' does. Not that I actually care.

    "Mech Alive" seems like a name for some sort of robot-themed concert/stage show.

    It's going to be hard for me to decide whether or not to buy a new leader class Prime mold.
    I already have the first one(premium version), and my Prime shelf is getting kind of packed.

    but this one likely combines...

    He could still be a Leader-class toy, only made slightly smaller so that he can more easily combine with the inevitable Jetfire toy (which will likely be a large figure as well)

    I second that - and hopefully the box will have some cross-sells so we can see some of the other toys. I'm sick of seeing the same four non-movie scouts over and over again...
