    I wonder if we'll get any info about Wave 2 Universe/Classics and beyond? Either way, I'm excited.

    It can't be any worse than Toy Fair 2002.

    Crud. look at that logo, I'm scared man. This is going to be such a big year for G.I. joe with the new movie. The joe logo looks a bit newer to me on that poster but otherwise, that huge darth vader head reminds us transformers nerds how little market our robots cover in comparison to the empire.

    I look forward to the coverage anyway, I could use some good news to get out of the dumpy month january seems to be.

    my only request is that they youtube their cast. The mp4 podcast they did for botcon last year was a pain as I did'nt like fiddling with quicktime to make it work. Everyone seems to run youtube.

    I'm sure being the best selling boys' toy(Transformers) in '07 means something.

    Wasn't 2002 Armada?

    Toyfair 2007 was the worst, they only had a couple of toys out for the Movie.

    I'm not expecting too many new items. It'll probably be the Classics 2.0 Wave 1 and Animated TFs, most of which we've seen.

    I'm hoping we might at least get some info on what those Universe voyagers might be. A line up for the legends figures (and perhaps some confirmation on whether or not they're new molds) would be nice too.

    Here's hoping the Universe Legends are little guys like Rumble,Frenzy, and their cassette brethren or Minibots.

    Transformable with new alts modes or just show-accurate, non-transformable figures. Either would be welcomed, as long as there's a new Ravage in it for me.

    If it's the cassette TFs, I'd like to see them do something like the movie Real Gear figures; i.e. give them handheld electronics device/role play alt modes. Well, on second thought, that might be a little hard on the legends scale. I don't know. I just want to find out what they're going to be. Soon. Former-cassette TFs would be awesome though.

    It'll probably be those and Earth-mode Megs. Hey, as long as we see something new, I'll be happy.

    Ohhh.... Toyfair can't come soon enough.

    What happened in 2002?

    I wouldn't count on it.
