    Well, title says it all, was there anything you liked at all, or is vail of misery cast over by dissapointment too much to bear?

    This is mostly a positive thread to offset the hater-parade that is TFW as of now, so I would like to hope we could get some genuine positive reactions.

    For me:

    Leader Optimus Prime- I honestly want to teleport to toyfair right now and steal it.

    Demolisher- Yeah, I know we've seen him before, but he looks cooler every time I see him.

    Animated Arcee- Too awesome. Finally a good Arcee toy that's not a bike.

    Soundwave and Ratbat- DO WANT.

    Sideswipe- Oh yeah...

    Human Alliance Bumblebee- I can not tell you how long I've waited for a fig like this, and it's based off such a great character.

    Among others.

    Rampage looks pretty cool.

    Sideswipe looks awesome as all hell.

    I kinda like the "HUUDURFF" Twins

    Animated Arcee is awesome even when mistransformed

    Animated Soundblaster is sooo METAL!

    Leader Prime, great looking mold. I skipped the first one and I'm happy I did.

    Soundwave and Ratbat, Ratbat looks fantastic and I might buy this repaint for him alone.

    Arcee looks good all around, especially her alt mode.

    Rampage & Demolisher both look great.

    I liked Arcee, and Electrostatic Soundwave....also Ransack.....I'll probably like the movie toys a lot more once I know what features they have.

    Well I actualy liked everything except for Mudflap, Arcee and the Devastator pricing.

    Oh and the fact that Toy Fair people can't transform toys for SHIT.

    Lots of stuff.

    - The big Devastator
    - RPM Brawl and Bonecrusher
    - Robot Replicas Starscream and Ironhide
    - Voyager Starscream
    - Deluxe Sideswipe
    - Leader Prime
    - Animated Soundwave with Ratbat

    Aside from that, I kind of like the derptastic autobot twins. They look so hilariously fail that it becomes awesome. They look speshul and its incredible.

    The Ratbat keytar in a OMG I can't believe they made a keytar sort of way.
    Also the yellow bulldozer guy with the the tread whips. I like the 4 leg thing he has going on. I'm sure I'm not the only one to notice it looks like all the Constructicons seem to have a very similar face.

    Animated Soundblaster and Ratbat.
    Animated Arcee.

    I like the look of Movie Sideswipe, but I'll make up my mind after someone video reviews it.

    What I did like:

    Leader Class Optimus Prime.
    Deluxe Class Sideswipe.
    Deluxe Class ...err twins. (I don't know their names yet. Too much info to retain.)
    Devastator (combined)

    Not a great amount to wow me this year. Can't count the Animated pictures we saw because none of their figures actually made it to Toy Fair. (I wonder why?)

    What did I like?

    Everything. In the main line of figures. Not the FAB and helmet side line stuff. Those are meh.

    But as I have said before, the only offender is Devastator.

    I gotta say, though, the more I look at Devastator the more I actually like him, but only a little. It'd be really fun to play with all the movie TFs, then bust out the CC and build the huge Devestator.

    Arcee and Rampage. That's pretty much it.

    Ratbat's pretty neat, but I don't know if I like him enough to buy a second Soundwave.

    I liked it all except for Devastator. Not going to buy all the child related merchandise, but I'll be getting most of the mainline stuff we saw.

    I really liked...

    - TFA Arcee
    - TFA E-Soundwave
    - ROTF Sideswipe
    - ROTF Rampage and Demolishor
    - ROTF Starscream
    - ROTF Soundwave

    Most of the rest of the stuff was neat, but nothing else really jumped out for me.
