    We have an exclusive report over at Transformers At The Moon covering the UK toyfair which was held last week.

    Several new items were shown (Transformers Animated toys not shown before), as well as Transformers Universe (Classics 2.0), Transformers Movie items, Robot Heroes and Marvel Transformers.

    No, it says in the report they weren't allowed.

    But it does confirm what those Marvel Transformers are. Looks like a cross between Megamorphs and the old Shape Shifters. Since their reporter considered them to look 'pretty cool', hopefully they're a lot better than both of those lines.

    North American toyfair isn't too far off is it?

    Maybe we will get pics then.

    The Hasbro people are pretty hawk eyes when it comes to cameras, or phones or anything like that. Plus you have to have an account with them to get into see the stuff anyway. But if they were on display there, then no doubt leaked testshots or protos will be coming soon

    I knew there wouldn't be any pictures, all the big american toy companies had gagging orders & photography bans put on them at the London toy fair to preserve any and all news for the yankee show. :thumbdown 

    *actually reads article*

    Oh good grief, Hasbro are really pushing Bulkhead hard, I like the Voyager and I'll buy the Leader size without a doubt but I can't imagine that the deluxe would have anything more to offer.
    Leader sized prime is no surprise at all and I'm glad to hear it.
    Voyager Megatron, is this the cybertron version or is the guy telling us that there are two versions of the earth mode (V & L)?

    I'm actually a bit despondent about this, I had belived that animated would give us lots of interesting new toys but 3 Bulkhead's and 4 Prime's/Megatrons means I can probably kiss my plan to be a completionist, even just on unique moulds, goodbye.

    Edit: This makes for 4 leader class toys now which makes me think that we won't see Ultra Magnus untill 2009. :(

    Comparing earthmode Megatron to the Switchblade from M.A.S.K. makes me happy. That toy was AWESOME.

    Even though there aren't any pictures, it's still nice to at least get some info from it. Hopefully the Leader Prime that's mentioned is really just the Roll-Out and Command version of him, as I'm hoping the 3rd Leader that we're suppost to get will be Ultra Magnus (we have been told he's bigger than a Voyager). Sounds like I was right about the Animated Activators, they're basically this lines version of FAB's. The Marvel TF's do sound interesting, especially since the first three happen to be characters I like. Especially Venom. It's nice to know that Jazz will be getting a toy, though I didn't doubt he would. It's interesting that we're going to be getting a Deluxe Bulkhead. I'm really curious as to what that'll look like. Maybe it's him when BB first met him? (there's an episode where BB recalls meeting Bulkhead at Autobot Boot Camp). I'll most likely be getting both Voyager and Leader sized Megatron's. This is going to be a good year for collecting, but a bad year to be a wallet of a collector.

    With how much I like the Voyager and deluxe classes of Prime and Megs, I can't wait to see the Leaders. Probably will get all size classes, just cause I'm a sucker. I really don't know how the marvel TFs will go, but the idea itself doesn't exactly thrill me.

    Yay for tax rebates!
    I know how I'll be stimulating the economy this year.

    I'm interesting in seeing Venom and Iron Man.
    And how The hulk is able to turn into a Jeep.

    Edit: Read that wrong. He makes sense as a Tank.

    I wonder if the Leader or Deluxe class will have a "Chair" mode.

    If the Leader and Deluxe versions of Bulkhead are just re-sizes of the Voyager class one, then I may just pick up the Leader class version. That way there can be a proper size comparison between him and the rest of the Autobots. I wonder what's up with the jetpack and wings, though.

    I'm also glad to hear that Earth Mode Megatron is going to be a Leader class toy.

    The new FABs are gonna be an easy pass. I didn't like the movie ones and I'm pretty sure I won't like these either. When pics finally start showing up, I'm sure my feeling will only be reaffirmed.

    Marvel Transformers sound lame.

    Leader Bulkhead eh? Sounds intriguing. If it's decent I may expand my Animated purchases to at least the core Autobots since they could be closer in scale that way.

    But what I REALLY care about is the new Classics stuff. I want to see some new pictures :(

    Leader Bulkhead + Voyager Prime and (hopefully) Ratchet + Delux BB and Prowl = My Animated Dream Line Up.
