    Can't find this posted anywhere, but I figured the fans-in-general would like to know. The dates for the TIA's Toy Fair '09 trade show are February 15-18 in NYC at the Javits Center.

    Can't wait for the coverage!

    And just FYI in case some of you don't know or have forgotten, this show isn't open to the general public, so please don't try to register via this link.

    It's only a month away.
    Compare that to the next official event after that, Botcon, which is still another five months away.

    Be careful when you use plural pronouns.
    I personally could wait till Botcon to see the movie stuff.
    It's Animated I want to find out about. Especially since season three is slated to start in March.

    edit: To add to that.
    I do think we'll see both Movie and Animated stuff at Toy Fair. It's more of a matter of which one will get more attention.

    As for Universe, They will probably have the Dinobot/Smokescreen and Hot Shot/ Ratchet waves on display, and they'll maybe have something that has to do with the exclusives. I don't expect much more than that.

    Yeah, and if the distribution patterns are similar to those of Seasons 1 and 2, we won't see any S3 character toys until maybe December.

    We already have Oil Slick(Although I'm guessing they're going to re release his toy in show accurate colors) and Safeguard(in some places).

    and it probably won't be too long before Waspinator starts showing up.
    Unless he already has, it's gets hard for me to keep track sometimes.

    Who say they will show anything?

    They always have a Media Free room.

    I don't expect to see anything we haven't seen.

    Why not?
    We got are first shots of Universe Galvatron and Oil SLick at last year's Toy Fair, if I recall correctly. And we saw Silverbolt's box at the Australian one.

    And they have more going on this year, so I expect to see more new stuff.

    I bet, Leader Optimus and ether Sideswipe or the twins will be the only ones out and the rest in back!, as for Universe and Animated, hopefully, Voyager BB and if there is, the wave after Ratchet and Hot Shot.

    People have very short memories, remember the Feb 2007 toy fair? Same situation we find ourselves in now, the movie is mere months away from multiplexes but Hasbro will be just as tight lipped about the toys as they were then. They have to be as they are tied into the movie studio which pours big bucks into these films and doesn't want their characters and plot leaked all over the place. All we saw then was leader prime, ultimate bumblebee and the voice changer helmet.

    Contrast that with toy fair 2008 where Hasbro showed a wall of animated figures, some half dozen of which we'd never seen before, the actual toy news coming out of next months toy fair will be predominantly animated.

    I was referring to the fact that Shockwave, Blurr, and Swindle were out four months after they appeared on the show, Wreck-Gar is just getting released, Arcee is out in a month or two, and the Constructicons won't be out until August; there's a large gap between show appearance and toy appearance and I'd bet that the same will happen with some of the S3 characters.

    Considering that Arcee's design is based on the S3 new design and Hasbro already said Constructicons Omega Supreme ain't getting toys in the near future, as far as their plans go, they're pretty much entering the third season already.
