    All the images that we have provided you guys in the Toyfair Images thread and in our Toyfair 07 gallery were items that were in the public area of the event. After TFW made its way through there, we were admitted into a private area where absolutely no photographs were allowed. Let me just say that there's an absolute plethora of 3rd party merchandise coming our way this summer! I will provide you with a list of wonderful bits of information:



    - ALL the deluxe-sized toys that we've seen on Ebay were shown
    - new deluxe toy shown: Bumblebee's 08 Camaro version
    - Leader sized Megatron was shown. Not as "holey", and more bulky than his CGI
    - Ipod Bumblebee is coming Clairfication: Ipod Bumblebee = IDog equivalent in Bumblebee form. Plug your Ipod into it, dances and moves around to the music, acts as speaker.
    - Tons of merchandise shown:
    - Tshirts
    - Shoes
    - Sunglasses
    - Caps
    - Shorts
    - Thermoses
    - Bedding (sheets, pillows, blankets)
    - mini-head sculpt statues in plastic( prime and bumblee shown)
    - Transformers Tech line: like Real Gear, but instead of turning into robots, turn into weapons, and include electronics
    - Cyberstompin' robots shown: 12" tall, like action masters. You set them down and they make noises like clangs and such and can also fire projectiles
    - Starscream flip-over gun: like the Pime Trailer gun, starts as an F-22 on your arm like a shield, and it flips over into a blaster
    - Chess set includes pewter figures (movie style)
    - Risk set shown
    - Puzzle sets
    - Galactic Heroes shown, come in 2-packs, Prime, Bumblebee, Ravage, Hotrod, Galvatron, and Ultra Magnus were shown
    - Trading cards that transform
    - Plushies Sumbleebee and Softimus Prime were shown, they are G1 style!
    - Were told this is merely a small fraction of merchanise to be had this year

    - a Video trailer of the upcoming video game was shown, and then one of the guys played the demo version for us to watch. It looks fantastic!
    - Game is done in a GTA like style. Large environments, 100% destructible, can transform limitless times
    - Available on all platforms: PC, Xbox 360, Wii, PS3, PS2, PSP, and 2 versions on DS
    - DS will offer cooperative play, or competitive play over wireless connetion
    - PSP will offer up to 4 player play
    - Consoles are single-player
    - beautiful graphics
    - They are going to work in as many G1 unlockable content as they possibly can
    - Working with Flint Dille for the G1 content, even got the models from Dreamworks!
    - The Marvel Ultimate Alliance team is working on the CGI cutscenes
    - When asked about VAs, told they couldnt' comment, but that we could speculate that the movie VAs would reprise their roles in the game
    - Can play as ALL Movie characters and even non-movie characters that are movie-based
    - Hasbro is working with them to try to make toys of these non-movie but movie-based characters!
    - All Tranformers in the game will have individual melee and weapons attacks
    - Can choose to be Autobots OR Decepticons, and the side you choose determines the game's endings.

    Game is sounding sweet now all I got to decide is Wii version with motion sensing throwing stuff or 360 godlike graphics.

    Hm, hopefully some of the Movie figures (aside from Ultimate Bumblebee) will be in the public areas, so we'll get more pics of them. I'm hoping we get to see some of the characters that don't appear in the movie.

    believe the answer is NO. notice there's also not one for the regular Xbox either. people keep making PS2 games because A)it has such a large install base, and B)is currently outselling the PS3.

    Well, no wonder Hasbro wasn't interested in bringing over the mp3 Soundwave, then...
