    Movie figs aside, what are you looking forward see coming out of Toy Fair.

    Personally I'd like to see:
    A Cartoon Accurate MP Starscream US release
    Classics:
    Seekers Box Set
    Trailers for Classics Prime and Magnus
    Classics Jazz, and Smokescreen
    New ALTS!!!
    SOMETHING from the TF Heroes line
    this is a strech but a MP02 Reissue US release


    Oh yeah and that $100 Movie Bumblebee

    Odds are It's going to be nothing but movie related toys.


    Hoping to get some idea of what the scout class will be like, along with Bonecrusher. Perhaps it's too early to see them but would *like* to see DX class Arcee and Leader Class Brawl.

    Ultimate BB being revealed is more likely than not i would've thought.

    I agree. Lots of movie figures. Some Titaniums and probably more SWTF shots as well. If there are any surprises, I'm not sure I could guess.

    I don't think they'll show much. Toy Fair isn't what it was. There'll probably be a half dozen Movie toys we've not seen, including Ultimate Bumblebee, but nothing much.

    A G1 accurate Masterpiece Starscream does have an outside chance, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

    Doesn't Hasbro take more of a backseat-role at Toy Fair now, displaying most of it products behind closed doors and revealing it to the general public at its own event at a later date? If this is the case, I'm not really expecting much, but I would enjoy seeing the rest of the Transformers Movie lineup, especially with more packaging. I expect some information of Classics and Heroes will show up at Botcon.

    I'd also like to see more of Hasbro's Marvel lineup, perhaps with some new Marvel Legends, more on this Marvel Heroes line they keep mentioning, some more Titaniums, and toy pictures of Spider-Man 3 and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

    Considering how many movie toys we've seen already, that's probably the case.

    I think we should be seeing some of the Heroes line, too.
    Doesn't Heroes come out in the fall?

    I work in one of the buildings with Toy Offices. I think Lego is 5 floors down.

    Unless Hasbro plan to release 18 deluxes in 5 months, or to have the two lines overlap somehow, it seems unlikely.

    Much as I'd love to see all that, the only thing that has a chance is Bumblebee. Classics is over, alts are on hiatus, and SS is too much of a stretch for a US release.

    We'll see movie stuff, maybe a SWTF or two, probably a bunch of titaniums. The tits is what I'm most looking forward to.

    I'm hoping that we get DEFINITIVE word from Hasbro as to whether or not Classics will continue later on down the road. I'm also hoping against hope to see a an anime accurate MP 'Screamer using the first mold.

    Hey, I know it won't happen, but let me have my happy place, will ya' ;-)

    I'd love to see more Marvel Legends, and I doubt Hasbro will let me down on that.

    One of the things I'm most excited about though, is the 25th Anniversary G.I. Joe collection. I'd REALLY like to see the rest of those molds.

    Other than that, I uhh... I got nothin'.

    Have fun!!!

    It's too early for Hasbro to show anything more than movie figures. Plus they always save the big news for Botcon. That's when we'll see Heroes and other stuff. Toyfair will be mostly uneventful

    My predictions:

    Movie toys.. lots of them if not all
    Classics (already out)
    Alt Ravage and Rumble
    VERY small and highly unlikely chance of one or two Classics repaints, but I doubt it myself.

    I only care about 3 things.

    New Marvel Legends.
    New Sigma Six.
    New 25th Anniversary 3 3/4" G.I. Joes.

    I think your right godsenddeath. It seems unlikely that Hasbro would release so many movie figures in such a short time but then again they will be putting out more than usual for the movie.

    It would be great if they decided to continue Classics and an anime color MP Starscream would be great as well. If nothing else I would like to see Classics figures occasionally packed with the Heroes figures so they could be better distributed, a problem that sub-lines seem to suffer from as of late. They would need to be labeled Classics but in a similar packaging that way collectors would know they are part of the Classics line instead of the Heroes line, although the molds should be a dead giveaway but it would feel to me like they are not the original G1 characters if it does not say Classics, and the kids would buy them because they would not know the difference. That is unlikely but it would be great.

    I'm really looking forward to the 25th Anniversary G.I. Joes as well. I'm looking forward to them more than the movie figures. If we don't see them all soon it will be very disappointing.

    Since the GI Joe convention is pegged for after the release of the 25th anniversary figures, I'd put money on seeing almost all of the molds at Toy Fair.

    Transformers-wise: I wouldn't expect anything new besides the movie toys.

    There's a big difference between what you want and what you can realistically expect. :) 

    Predictions:
    Movie Preview Protoforms
    First wave, maybe first couple waves of movie toys.
    Titaniums and Robot Heroes chibi-figs.
    maybe Classics and Alternators we've already seen.

    I DON'T expect to see:

    "Heroes" toys - for the same reason we didn't see Classics toys at last year's Toy Fair. Hasbro won't plug something coming at the end of the year when they have something important to plug sooner.

    Any Classics we didn't already know about - if (BIG if) there are any new Classics coming anywhere near movie time, I'd only expect repaints that are store exclusives, similar to last-gasp RiD and Universe stuff, and those almost never get displayed at Toy Fair.
