    There's mention of a deluxe Soundwave for animated w/guitar that turns into Laserbeak.

    Oh man, don't tell me Soundwave is going to be a drumset or something... what else goes with a Laserbeak guitar?

    2008 sounds like another great year for TFs.

    Maybe he doesn't transform and he is Laserbeaks guitarist! But seriously thats the only thing i'm sceptical about in this show right now.

    We must have pics!

    I must see this new Soundwave!

    And Blackarachnia - and everyone else.

    I'm just glad that barring the occasional figure there isn't much I want until March (when the new line launches) - time to rebuild the wallet.

    Then I'll have to balance between being picky with Animated and getting the rest of the Classics.

    Um... an amp goes with a guitar.

    Soundwave as an amp would work in my books.

    Some of the info sounds inaccurate. Anyone from tfw2005 down there covering the panel? I hope hasbro let the press take pics this time around.

    Very true. That would work for me as well. I'd actually be excited to see that.

    Is anyone else confused about mention of a deluxe Grimlock? Didn't they say he was going to be a voyager at Botcon? And i wonder if whoever typed that about a deluxe Slug meant either Slag or Sludge.

    He, I know they're typing it down quickly, but did they just spell Eric Siebenaler's name as 'Eric Sebnhauler'? I guess Eric can transform into a crane, but can only been seen once in that form.

    Hasbro has decided to continue the movie line into 08, called "Allspark Power" based on positive fan feedback. Some of the entries shown:

    Landmine, deluxe, Sector 7's dune buggy.

    Stockade, deluxe, S7's SUVs when they arrest Sam and Mikela.

    Cliffjumper repainted from Bumblebee 08 - can't have Bumblebee without Cliffjumper.

    Incinerator, voyager-class, an Osprey from the beginning of the film. Intentionally using one of Blackout's earlier concept names.

    Blue power hue throughout bot forms signifies Allspark power.

    First Strike Optimus, repainting voyager-class Optimus to pay homage to G1.

    Evac, paying tribute to a coast guard chopper cut scene. Autobot remold of Blackout


    Desert Attack Brawl, repaint, with autobot kill marks on side. Leader class.

    Nightwatch Optimus Prime, repaint of the leader class. An opportunity to revisit the night scene in the movie as a concept.



    That's it for movie.

    Outside of movie line...

    Robot Heroes continues in 08, more BW and G1 heroes, then more movie heroes.



    Fall 08: Classics? It's been asked about a lot. Classics brought in the concept of the realistic look which goes with the movie, so coming up will be "Transformers Universe", conceptually it is Classics 2.0.

    - Sideswipe andSunstreaker, remolds of each other. The final models chests will look different due to a transformation scheme switchup.

    - Octane: Triple-changer, military tanker, big prop cargo or fueling plane, and robot in Ultra pricepoint instead of deluxe.

    Looking at a larger scale, they walked away from Ultra pricepoint ($25, a little larger than Voyager but sorta similar) a few years ago, but are looking to bring it back for Classics 2.0. About 8 new figures in the deluxe scale and 3 or 4 in Ultra. Looking to maybe add electronics.



    Transformers Animated. The show is a reinterpretation, familiar but new. Toys are being put into cases RIGHT NOW! ActionFigs will have shots of the display very soon.

    - Deluxe and Voyager Optimus Prime shown. Dlx has no trailer-type section, cybertronian truck front. Voyager is Earth mode.

    - Deluxe Bumblebee and Voyager Bulkhead. They've taken extra care to match faces to cartoon.

    - Deluxe Prowl & Ratchet. Prowl has a stoplight.

    - Dlx Slag and Voyager Grimlock. Energy-infused melee weapons.

    Paint have had a glossy finish in the past, but now adding mold finish to give a matte and satin finish with metallic paint on top.

    - Voyager Megs and Starscream. Examples of how they look near the top of the show.

    - Voyager Lugnet and Blitzwing. Blitzwing is a Triplechanger tank to plane to bot.

    - Deluxe Lockdown, turns into a big muscle car. Their version of Boba Fett. Voiced by Lance Henricksen.


    Rubsigns on the toys.

    - Finally, Deluxe Blackarachania, and Soundwave, boxy SUV which comes with a guitar in bot mode that turns into Laserbeak.
