    Next weekend, and yes to the studio series and BB movie stuff (confirmed via press releases), and probably MPM ironhide at the very least, possibly VW bee as well.

    Next weekend usually implies the following weekend after the upcoming one. If you say somethings happening this week, you know it’s this week. But it if happens next week, well your implaying it takes place in the next week.

    I usually just say “next weekend” for the first part of the week, as it gets closer to the end of the week, I’ll start saying “this weekend”. It’s not really a conscious thing though, just something I’ve always done, people always seem to know what I mean.

    Also, I’ve been home sick all day, so still feels like Sunday to me.

    Wasn\'t the Bumbleebee movie supposed to be a prequel? This looks like an update of his current design. I\'ll wait to see if they are gonna have different former design of him.  Hopefully there is no higher priced repaints from former movie waves.

    The bumblebee movie is a prequel...bee transforms into a VW bug. As of yet we have a couple of promo images, but haven’t really gotten a look at his final robot mode. The deluxe bumblebee that was leaked is from the studio series, a line meant to give new figures to old characters, and to those characters who never recieved figures in the first place. In this case, bumblebee’s ‘76 Camaro body from the ‘07 movie.

    Type-R vaguely mentioned a "new" MPM Barricade, is he talking about the recent MPM-5 or something else???

    They're £25 in the UK.

    In 2009 when I was still buying figures Voyagers were £23.

    Leaders were £45.

    Leaders are now £65.

    I nearly choked on my breath when I saw the price tag the other day when I went into a toy store where I got TLK voyager Megatron for £20.

    Actually I think that this line is made to replace the old line of figures since many are being replaced entirely and the key point is scale and to collect the cast so it would be unsurprisingly if most characters simply got new figures.

    I get paid in 2 weeks so if these release soon I'll be broke as soon as my money comes in.

    Well, that too...I got the feeling with TLK that hasbro was aiming for something...new, with the movie line. The studio series would seem to be a continuation of that, and could indicate that all movie figures from now on (at least for the foreseeable future) will be created with a certain level of accuracy and care, and with an ensemble display in mind. Not unlike a mini MPM line.

    It has to be MPM-5. There's no way they'd double dip on MP Barricade this soon.

    See over here in the UK, the Premier Editions were quite a bit more than the TR figures; not sure whether the increased price will also apply to POTP or just the Studio Series.

    Movie Masterpiece
    New Bee movie VW Bee.
    New Barricade (not sure if from Bee movie)
    Ironhide (very disappointing. Cannons are gigantic in vehicle mode with the darts sticking out. Robot mode looks like Robot Replica Ironhide. Very stumpy, and a giant head. Thought it was a kids line first, then I saw the MM box next to him.)

    It was back at the Hong Kong fair

    Oh... I was quoting from someone else.

    I believe that Barricade that person saw was definitely MPM-5.
