    Not to say I'm disappointed or anything as it was a massive amount of news, but I remember slideshows of un-displayed upcoming toys last year and possibly the year before.

    I'm just holding out hope that there'll be pics of HA Soundwave. :(

    It was disappointing not to see an SDCC exclusive Transformer revealed. Perhaps the Skystriker counts, but the past several years have included exclusives that actually transformed announced at Toy Fair.

    This year's announcements were weak at best. Whatever will I do with my money once Generations and RTS are over?

    The cash that I'll be saving by not buying DOTM stuff will help pay for,

    TFC Constructicons/Devastator
    Perfect Effect Reflector

    So I'm actually pleased about the awfulness of the various DOTM lines as it makes buying some great 3rd party items a whole lot easier.

    The only reason this year was so underwhelming because there were leaks GALORE for the past month and a half.

    I was actually super surprised last year when we got as many Generations reveals as we did. Looking back on it now, it could've simply been because it wasn't a movie year and this one is so... yeah. I usually go into Toy Fair not expecting to hear much.

    Now its on to waitin' for Botcon.

    This. If there weren't any leaks, our minds would have been blown by most of the stuff. :lol 

    But yeah, that was it. I don't think they ever actually put up new items on display in the subsequent days.

    I didn't think about it that way. That is GREAT idea! Finally will be getting that protector armor after all!

    I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority but the DOTM stuff didn't get me excited a whole lot. After all, Aren't they pretty much the same figures we've had since the 1st movie? :lol  & a Leader Ironhide? How many Bayverse Ironhides do we already own? & now they want us to buy another one..?

    I too am disappointed that there were no future Classics 3.0 figures shown either. Isn't Wheeljack, Thundercracker, Rumble/Frenzy, Warpath etc. due for release in the next month or two? Not even a glimpse of those? Guess I'll just have to wait for the first of those stolen figures to hit the net... :lol

    I plan on buying a grand total of 3 DOTM toys. That may change when I see some like the helicopter, but I've got to save up for the Fort Max and Grand Max replicas. I'll gladly buy all the Generations and PCC's, though.

    There was objectively more transformers and Transformers like product this year than last year. Sure I wanted more of the stuff shown off last year but hey there was a TON of product this year.

    I was sad to see that Prime Arcee's forearms were black, and I think we should've seen more overall. Wasn't as awesome as, say, Toy Fair '09 was.

    He was leaked in some Wal-Mart listings a week or two ago, along with an HA Wrecker...and a bunch of other stuff. Deluxe Soundwave, Laserbeak, Voyager Sentinel Prime, etc.

    No Generations Arcee, or that anomalous Starscream listing. :( 

    That's what really gets me. However, I am interested in the Cyberverse stuff, Leader Ironhide, and Leader Sentinel Prime. The HA Basics are also a cool idea.
