    Ok guys......the low down......

    Am on my phone btw so bare with me, hasbro booth was heavily secure felt like Fort Knox but there was some items on display but a majority are being held back till the US toy fair for certain reasons.

    First being the trailer would of aired (revealing grimlock)
    Second the first two waves confirm most of the cast line up (they are doing things very different to the previous toy lines)
    Third being the story line that is being used in this film is very unique.

    I can't reveal loads as you are taken through some strict checks as a trader and my friend runs a toy business that could get hit hard on the discovery of me leaking information but I can reveal the items I saw included;

    Optimus prime leader and voyager
    Bumblebee
    Drift (surprised by his look but loved it!) the license for drift was easy to obtain hence the 2007 move plus they loved his robot mode I was told.
    Crosshairs
    Lockdown (who is very sexy, anyone remember footage of him chasing the rusty truck cough OPTIMUS cough, hint as to a scene there)
    Grimlock - only saw dino mode looks to transform

    The items on show looked good for the generations line

    In terms of the jousters nothing on display but all will be revealed at US toy fair plus we have a guide catalog on its way to is in the next month.

    I didn't spend long in the booth a matter of mear minutes discussing products and shipments but got tidbits about the film plans though. There is more on show tomorrow too.

    Unique story line.....hmmmmm; the Autobots have been banished to China where they now hide out as Samurai before time warping back to the Jurassic where they scan dinosaurs and return with the Dinobots?

    So can we assume that Lockdown is the main Decepticon? Or is there a higher commander *cough* Galvatron *cough*?

    Appreciate what you could share! I think I'll be looking more forward to the Super Bowl trailer than the game given I'm a Denver fan and won't be particularly enjoying the game lol

    Knockdown or Lockdown? Or is Knockdown a new name?

    And only two questions, regarding two bots:
    1 - do you know if Cyclonus was there?

    2 - How did Grimlock look in both beast/bot mode? Can you give a description or are you banned from that?

    And thank you for what you're telling us.

    I get the feeling that
    Knockdown is a separate character and from the description appears to be the Argosy

    Ummm... there is no Motormaster...
    Thanks for sharing some info. Should hopefully calm down some of the people bitching... Anyways a link a page or two back has pictures of some RC cars and a weird looking helicopter. Do you know if the helicopter is a character? Like say, Cyclonus?
