    Along with the usual pictures, they also have a shot of the G1-style Movie catalog that came with T-S Prime.

    The catalogue doesn't look like much, but I'm still looking forward to TS Bumblebee :)

    Cool stuff, but I will be passing.

    However, I'm hoping that there will be a Music Label Blaster sometime soon!

    That'll crack open my wallet in a hurry.

    They look cool enough but I will have to pass, I can only hope Hasbro releases the new Universe line very soon or the money I've saved for them might have to go to gas.

    That's a little bit smaller than I was expecting for Trans-Scanning. I may have to rethink my decision to get Bumblebee.

    The picture of TS Bumblebee in the catalog is of the unpainted proto. That's really weird.

    Anyone notice they are calling Optimus, Optimus Prime instead of Convoy? They are really going for the US market with these.

    Don't care for them.

    I think I'm about done with the movie line now. A couple figures I still want to get (Landmine and Incinerator mostly), but after that I gotta start saving up for Animated.

    I really like the looks of Prime, but I'm much more interested in Bumblebee, as we already have a protoform Prime. Any word on when 'Bee is available?

    Hasbro should be selling those ipod convoy's themselves, I can't imagine they'd have a hard time shifting them given how retro cool they are not to mention the Apple association.

    Na, movie Prime is just called Optimus Prime in Japan, too. They kept all of the names, apparently. Even the Real Gears. No one really knows why.
