    Roll Out & Command Optimus Prime?
    It sounds like that's going to be similar to Ultimate Bumblebee.
    In which case, I can't wait to see that on shelves.

    So either there is going to be Leader sized figures in the 08 Animated line or theses are more lileky to be movie repaints.
    I'm guessing Allspark Prime, Desert Brawl and a Megatron repaint if that's the case.

    FAB's are coming back with a new name, hope they don't only do some Characters as Activators. Stick with just the core cast for pocket money toys and we'll be fine.

    12 Universe figures before years end is great news, but what's with the third unspecific entry for 8 figures, are those the repaints of older ones perhaps.

    Animated battle pack, presumably the preview set, if the dvd is the premiere then that would be awesome news for non US folk but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

    Animatronic Prime, animated, movie, G1???

    News overload... *brain meltsdown*

    Animated's nine Voyagers are more or less known,
    1-Starscream
    2-Bulkhead
    3-Cybertron Megatron
    4-Earth mode Prime
    5-Earth Mode Megatron
    6-Lugnut
    7-Grimlock
    8-Blitzwing
    9-Ultra Magnus - this is the only one that hasn't been confirmed but seems likley

    15 deluxes
    1-Cybertron Prime
    2-Bumblebee
    3-Lockdown
    4-Prowl
    5-Ratchet
    6-Soundwave
    7-Blackarachnia
    8-Slag

    Which leaves us with a whole 7 more figures yet to be seen, I guess 9 could be Swoop but he hasn't been confirmed as getting a toy yet. Other potential ones are Jazz, Blurr, Arcee, Wreckgar, Sentinel Prime, the two Constructicons that were mentioned in one of the episode summaries and I can't think of any more. Shockwave should be kept back for the next season and be one of next year's voyagers imo.

    Oops, I thought somebody else would make a post in between mine...

    Also from that article,

    "Marvel Legends Transformers
    Well, there are 8 of these planned, and we guess some people might like them…

    The Invincible Iron Man Figure
    This 12” figure will feature snap-on armour, weapons, jet pack, and helmet."

    More Marvel TF's is a big no thank you but that Iron Man sounds very cool.

    Yup. I think in the Botcon news they were calling the 'line' Universe/Classics 2.0 (as in the new classics to be released under the Universe heading).

    Wow that's a lot of Robot Heroes! (26)

    It looks like the high quality movie repaints may only be partially accounted for this year. The leaders listed here could be movie toys, but I'm not seeing any listing that could be the movie voyagers.

    Is this an indication that they're store exclusives, or just not on the list?

    Eh? I know this is a stupid question but I have to ask. So the leader animated toys? Just bigger? Or are there more gimmicks to them?

    Nope, at 24cm long, 18cm wide in vehcile mode and 17.5cm tall I think I can safely assume that he's a Voyager. ;)

    Oh yeah, I just double checked that thread, I was thinking 18 cm tall in bot mode for some reason. Wow being a voyager makes that incoherent clump of an alt mode seem even worse (I'll still be getting him just for bot mode though).

    The leader listings likely refer to Movie Leader class toys, such as Nightwatch Optimus Prime and Deep Desert Brawl. We haven't heard of any Leader class toys for Animated yet.

    Hmm... sounds interesting...

    As Fort Max said all of the Animated assortments Voyagers are pretty much known... and you're probably right that Shockwave won't see a figure until the 09 assortmen unless they make him a Deluxe... which would be stupid IMO, but it could happen I guess. Though we've not really been given a direct confirmation on Ultra Magnus... just that we'd be getting one in Animated... he may not come until 09, but I doubt it.

    The Animated Deluxes leaves about 7 unknowns, but that can be pieced together mostly from the characters that we know are going to be in the show.

    Confirmed Deluxes:
    • Cybertron Optimus Prime
    • Bumblebee
    • Prowl
    • Slag
    • Ratchet
    • Blackarachnia
    • Soundwave
    • Lockdown

    So, out of the characters we know are going to be in the show we'll most probably get Swoop as I doubt they wouldn't make one of the three Dinobots. The other six are probably Arcee, Jazz, Blurr, Wreck-Gar, Sentinel Prime and the un-named Constructicon Tom Kenny is supposed to be voicing.

    However, what I'm really curious about are the four Ultras and eight deluxes slated for Universe. Also, I wonder what the unspecified price point Universe figures are that are slated to have eight figures? Maybe a scout class for Universe? Or possibly the repaints that were mentioned?

    Also, a lot of interesting Marvel news coming up...

    Very interesting news. I'm curious as to which Prime the one listing is refering to. Personally, I'm hoping Animated Prime, as I think a big version of him with electronics would be cool. Next year is definetly going to be a great year to be collecting Transformers.
