    Sounds cool. When I saw the title of the thread, I wasn't actually expecting anything new. I don't really expect to see much of interest till Saturday during the panel. I was actually kinda hoping for an Activators Grimlock, it's awesome that they're actually making him. Can't wait to see pictures. The one hope I have for TF Mighty Muggs, is that they make a Grimlock one. Wouldn't really be that hard. The only addition they would need to make to the normal body shape would be his ears, and maybe his sword. His "wings" would be nice, but I'd be happy enough with just the ears and a nice paint job.

    They almost always put new figures out after the panel. So expect some new stuff this weekend.

    Of what's mentioned up there, I want to see Activators Grimmy and Megs.

    Hopefully there will be much more to come.

    I cannot wait to get a look at Activators Grimlock. Should be very cool. I was hoping they'd do another version of him in the Animated line. :thumb

    Man I hope they put out more than that. Still, the bumper repaints sound interesting, we'd seen a silvery Jazz bumper-battler at Botcon a couple months ago with no explanation, guess this is it.
    Still, do want pictures of those new Activators.
