    Just came back from toyfair uk 07 and i have good news and bad news . The bad news is that there was NOBODY at Hasbro UK 's booth that knew anything about transformers this year other than the fact that they were selling them amongst other things , the transformers section was not available to small time retaillers to view plus according to "master replicas/ corgi" Hasbro wouldn't have anything to show movie wise anyway because of "moulding problems " with their prototypes. The good news is I still got some good titbits of info from them . Following this thread will be images taken from hasbro, master replicas/ corgi and a special extra from a third party company

    (uk fans may need to write down these release dates for the following 2 pages)

    As another company said, Hasbro has had some moulding problems with the toys because of the complexity of the designs but note what it says about the leader's main gimmick

    Bumblebee: the next big thing of 2007. Also note the "cyber slammers" term for the bump and go prime

    Well, at least we now have an idea of how big Ultimate BB will be - i'd's guess it's fairly likely it will be packaged in robot mode.

    Unfortunately prototypes were not ready yet (the guy that served me was probably as disappointed as me when he realised it too )

    OOH, I'm definitely buying those quick changers for some "crashing and bashing"...


    What the heck are the Robot Heroes? They sound like movie repaints in G1 colors, or better yet, a continuation of the classics line.

    Where is the information on the Classics line?? I really hope they continue this line as (besides Masterpiece and Binaltech)it is the first line since I was younger that I have interest in collecting...because it is of G1 classic characters. I really want to see new versions of all the original Autobots and Decepticons. I wish they would release Skywarp seperate of white Optimu....oops I mean Ultra Magnus. HASTAK..HEAR MY PLEE!!! CONTINUE CLASSICS AND REMAKE AL ORIGINAL CHARACTERS. PLEASE!!

    all signs point to "no"

    Hasbro's investing major resources in the movie and the new toy line... Classics were just to keep the fans interested between Cybertron and the movie

    So Automorph means that when you transform a piece of the toy, other parts transform with it? I dunno... it sounds cool, but I start to see the reason behind it: kids today are more and more stupid (or so do the toy companies think) thus they start simplifying the transformations. Still, better then having an overall simplified transformation.

    I bought a couple Super Hero Squad sets a couple days ago and pondered if they would do that for TF this year. Awesome.

    Interestingly, the Starscream 'Barrell-roll Blaster' mentions two barrells, so maybe SS only has gatling guns as a toy?

    They're referring to that little gimmick on Ratchet where pulling the kneecaps down makes little panels on the sides of the legs bulge out to make the legs look bulkier.
    Didn't really work on him but I'm interested to see what else they come up with.

    Yep. Also when you move Brawl's head up, the treads move with it.
