    Wow. Some of those that we've never seen before are pretty cool. There's the other 2 Real Gears, the drone Jet, and Arcee. I might just add some more Real Gears to the one's that I already plan to get.

    Edit: I'll also have to be adding that '08 Camero Bumblebee to my list of stuff to get.

    Yeah. I was hoping she would be a car or something, I am not a fan of bike TF's.

    According to TFormers, her name is "Earthy"! :D 

    EDIT: I also love how it says "Don't reprint" on half these images.

    FAB's continue to be less and less worth having on my shelf, especially when the Deluxe & Voyager counterparts are so much better.

    Motorbike ARCEE... Guess she's stuck in a trend now, but I'd prefer a car myself.
    Decepti-Jet? Is that DREADWING? Looks like a slightly more streamlined THRUST (although the pics are hardly good quality)

    A watch?? YES! Is that jet a drone or Megatron's earth form? Love the game controller, I'm gonna be so broke :cry  (tears of joy/pain)

    Dreadwing's similar to Armada Thrust in the comics.

    And as for the things on Megatron's back, I think they're flames. They can't make JUST one leader with'em, after all :) 

    Arcee would lend herself nicely to a pre-earth Blackarachnia, don't ya think?

    I'm loving that game controller bot. Looks kind of like a gorilla in bot mode. Very cool.

    The motorcycle that can't be anyone but Arcee looks okay, but I still don't like her being a motorcycle. If I want an Arcee, I'll wait for the Titanium version, which should be her G1 car mode.

    Well, assuming you also took advantage of the situation and looked at the the pics like the rest of us, I wouldn't complain or throw stones.

    That said, here's my thoughts:

    Legends Blackout - vehicle mode looks very good, robot mode will suffice (it is legends toys, after all)
    [edit: this apparently could be FAB Blackout, which would explain the good looking copter mode. If so, the bot mode is worse than it should be]

    FAB (finally?) Megatron - bot mode looks ok, but it's very hard to see the vehicle mode. It'll probably be the worst fab in terms of visuals, due to the nebulous cybertronian design. I think I like the Legends version more.

    Real Gear Watch - awesome. The head sculpt is vaguely reminiscent of a G1 character...love the Decepticon sigil on the chest.

    Dreadwing - great. I was right about the MiG-29 mode earlier (not that it was my only guess). I like the exhaust flamethrower arms, and I'm glad we're getting a design nod to Armada Thrust, who was probably the most unusual looking Seeker at that point. If we get Skywarp out of this instead of the Voyager F-22 mold, I won't mind.

    Real Gear Controller - VERY cool. The controller mode looks good and the bot mode makes great use of the hand grips as huge forearms. He looks like a Decepticon, but I have a feeling that he'll be an Autobot...he'll make a great Primal/Cyb. Crumplezone repaint someday.

    Deluxe Arcee - Fantastic! Looks just like the comic version (save for the scheme), and the bike mode looks sharp. I wonder if the bike seat/crossbow is permanently attached to her left arm. Also, in bot mode she kind of gives off a Blackarachnia vibe. Kind of appropriate. What I don't understand, however, is the three
    color schemes we now have for movie Arcee: comic book black & white, basic repaint blue & silver, and deluxe pink, black and gold.

    Deluxe 2009 Bumblebee - far better than the 70s version. I may even be happy enough with this to bypass Ultimate BB...
