    Ok, when will we see the new picks of either the new Classics or figures for the new series ? and what surprise would we get? I hope for Shockwave (either line) Wheeljack (classics) Classics Galvatron, Kup, Brawn, Hound, etc. Arrrrgggghhhh, waiting till SDCC or Toyfair is a killer!

    Well, since it's going to be a good year or so until most of that stuff is released, you can put money down on "a while".

    Trust me, once they start shipping the protos to Mainland China, it won't be long now till some chinese guy gets his hands on some of the protos and puts it up on E-bay.

    They showed us some concept art for the twins, with pictures of what car models they would look sorta like (they won't be licensed, so they'll be realistic but not real cars). Aaron also said that the chests would be different (they were the same in the concept art).

    That's all the visuals we got at the panel. Oh, wait, I take that back--they showed us a a picture of a tanker truck and a commercial airliner, sort of just to let us they'd be making Octane.

    They did have protos of Animated. I think, some of them were so close to the Animated style that I wasn't sure.

    I wish they make Kup, I would buy that, and shockwave.
    They should also make Starscream again for People who couldn't get one ( like me lol).

    it wold be awesome if they were to re-release him and Ramjet with the others in Classics 2.0, so I can grab some to kitbash. We're supposed to get a Shockwave in the Animated line, so we could potentially get 2 G1 inspired Shockwaves in the same year, lol.

    I have Ramjet, he's pretty cool, but his head is odd, suppose thats why his name is "RAMjet" lol. its pretty cool to have two shockwave figures, I don't own one though.

    Hasbro said at the panel that they wouldn't release a character in Classics around the same time they released the same character in Animated, to avoid confusion. So Classics Shockwave will be a while, if he is coming.

    Ah...you see that makes sense. A lot of people were reporting that if a character was in Animated they wouldn't show up in Classics at all. Which is odd cause they then named dropped Prowl and Ratcher for Classics, which didn't make sense. Not releasing them close to each other, makes a hell of a lot more sense.

    I agree Rama, I was very confused about that as well. If I had to choose, I would choose G1 Classics Prowl over Animated Prowl with no hesitation.

    I just don't see Prowl as a "Ninja". He was a logic tactician in G1, and now he is a... Ninja? I would rather they made Sideswipe a Ninja, at least he was a warrior.
