    Interesting that they did not mention anything of the Movie Trilogy line. Maybe it isn't getting a UK release or maybe they are part of the Generations line?

    Also, YAY! Leader Class RID Optimus! MEH! Leader Class Bumblebee (would much rather have Megatron).

    Damn I skipped all the WfC stuff in the first gen line, money was short, prime and megs were to small and i already had a good bumblebee and CJ now I am kicking myself cos I'm going to miss out on having a great pre earth tf shelf.

    No Prime First Editions in the UK? Well that sucks. Sounds like I'll have to get Bulkhead, Optimus and Starscream from Ebay for scalper prices.

    Mind you those eight Fall of Cybertron/Generations toys sound cool.

    Definitely some very interesting news. Most especially Prime Leaders, though it's sad that Bee is one of the first two made.

    It's comforting to know that it's continuing, but atm the only FoC character I know I would get is Grimlock. Should be interesting to see who all get's made.

    This sounds like it'll be very interesting. If it's as awesome looking as I'm imagining it....I might actually get it and a slew of other Cyberverse stuff...

    This set is definitely going to be tempting, as I love both of their designs. Should be interesting to see how big the set is. Hopefully not too big...

    I have to be honest, I was absolutely not expecting this to actually happen. I look forward to seeing how it looks. I don't think I'll get it, but it's definitely tempting.

    As for no movie toy news, I couldn't care less about that aesthetic's future, so if anything I'm glad to not see any news about it's future toy-wise.

    Since this is our first glance at what Hasbro are doing this year, definitely frontpage worthy.

    All of that news is just amazing. Eight new FOC figures and the return of Baseformers? Just fucking awesome!

    Optimus Maximus really has me interested, and I can't wait to see the new Generations toys.

    I couldnt be more excited for jazz. I litterally choked on my drink. I was trying to work out how to turn rid jazz into WFC-esque jazz but now i dont have too. I predict we will get grimlock, arcee (hasbro did hint at a generations arcee last year), starscream, shockwave, (new OP and megs), WJ and maybe a generic decepticon!

    Edit: no photography? Isnt this normally when we see the new stuff? They seemto have been so secrative with thier new procucts lately!

    Yeah, those are the really innovative ones. Transforming Base for Cyberverse has been clamored for. Wonder if it indicates a direction for the show, or if it's just "buy me, I'm cool!" Also hope they do a "Generations" one of one of the old bases.

    I'm ecstatic that Hasbro has kept their promise and kept Generations in play. This is already a very long-lived line, no? I may have to reconsider being a completist though...do I need another Jazz, another Grimlock? Maybe I should make a "Cybertronian" shelf for repeats. I really hope that the next 8 Generations figures aren't ALL FoC, to be honest.

    Keep in mind that ToyFair concentrates on "new" stuff. FoC, new play pattern for Kre-O, new Leader and Cyberverse play patterns. So don't stick a fork in Movie Trilogy just yet. I DO suspect a lot of us will not be seeing First Edition on shelves though.

    What else? Well, it seems that collector interest is not enough to sustain Leaders anymore...but at least we are getting them. I've no interest but I bet many of us will enjoy Weaponizers. Actually I like that they incorporate Stealth Force kind of stuff.

    This is pretty typical. UK Toy Fair is a "No photography" event while the New York Toy Fair is the "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! HOLY SH*T LOOKT AT ME ALREADY!" event.
