    Hmm... they're really expanding the movie toyline... I'm really hoping we don't get thousands upon thousands of different versions of each individual character...

    As for the TF Movie Ultimate... that's about the same price as 20th Prime goes for... maybe something similar? Except that it has to do with the TF movie?

    The "Karate Fighters" gives me bad gimmicky vibes back to early Ninja Turtles toys and if they're what I'm thinking they will be (non-tfing robots with action features) than I will likely be passing on them.

    I'm not sure what the other one could be...

    Hmmm...Perhaps a 12-16 inch version of Prime with full articualtion and almost movie accurate transformation!?


    or a Bumblebee figure at that size with a Spike action figure.....seeings how he's going to be the "main" character......hmmm, indeed....

    Im betting a Movie Accurate, Super Articulated Prime and Megs - Prime for sure, hopefully both of the leaders. We all saw that option coming as a for sure.

    with kunfu grip.

    Merchandising! Merchandising! Where the real money from the movie is made. Transformers the T-shirt, Transformers the coloring book, Transformers the lunch box, Transformers the breakfast cereal, Transformers the flamethrower--the kids love this one--last but not least, Transformers the doll.:lolol

    I'm surprised people don't get it by now. This movie, like any really big marketing movie, is going to flood the market with every single type of toy available. They are going after every single market, from collectors to toddlers. If they cna put a Transformer on it, it's going to be released.

    oh man, if you're right, that means im out at LEAST $160!
    i like the idea of a spike figure fitting into bumblebee alt mode.
    i wonder if they will do minifigs of the "squishies" along the lines of the star wars TF's? that could be VERY cool!

    and i agree: karate fighters? :puke: 
    i didnt know they taught kung-fu on cybertron.

    i wonder what "robovision" could be. maybe green wire-frame kinda like when unicron re-formatted megs into galvatron?
    or clear? like we could see his parts inside?
    might be interesting.

    off topic but
    deefuzz, who is that in your sig on the left... i have the same shirt hahaha
    "protect your nuts!"

    My first thoughts were something like 20th Prime, but I just didn't think they would do it...but I am all for it!

    That would be our very own Kickback.

    Karate Fighters? Please tell me that's going to be action figures of the humans in the movie and NOT the robots. PLEASE?

    Karate Chop Optimus just doesn't have a very nice ring to it. And I'm one that's been mostly hopefull about the new movie stuff.

    I find your ideas intriguing, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

    SUPAH-DEFORMAH FOR TEH WINNAH!

    Oh, sorry, my love for Super Deformed/Superior Defender Gundams combined with my love of Transformers and formed some weird super-mutant latent desire that I didn't realize was there until you mentioned what you mentioned.
