    Pretty much it's all movie stuff.

    Hugo Weaving has been cast as Megatron, there's been 2 new TV spots released too. Lots of leaked toy samples.

    Alternators are wrapped up after Rumble and Ravage for the time being. Classics is gone too.

    Masterpeice has released Megatron, and yes, he does turn into an oversized P38 and is pretty darn accurate.

    Poho is gay.

    With me.

    We do gay things.

    Like dancing in the rain and singing merrily.

    And kissing.

    Damn it never stops does it? :lol 

    Avoid the movie forums, it is the pit of despair.

    I think everyone else pretty much covered it.

    Alt ravage and ruble are awesome and only available at Walmart.

    Some Targets have Transformer pants with "More than meets the eye" across the crotch.

    I might have a secret man-crush on smang. ;)

    Oh shit, are you kidding? Are they really Walmart exclusives?

    Must've missed that.

    apparently Mr. Welker will only be Megatron in the game

    The chip plague has taken a strange new turn

    Wheeljaxx made a Liokaiser KB

    The fuzzy was back for April 1st.

    And some 5th graders had sex in their classroom.

    Let's see...

    Alternators:

    Rumble and Ravage were released as Wal-Mart exclusives. Online stores will have them too, but at a higher price.

    Clear Mirage was announced, supposedly under the Binaltech line. There are, as yet, no details concerning the release. No pictures either.

    The Alternators line is on hold until at least after the movie (possibly indefinitely).

    Classics:

    Ramjet, Cliffjumper, Skywarp, and Magnus were released. The Skywarp/Magnus set is now on clearance at Target. Devastator has been found in American Wal-Marts.

    The Soundwave re-issue is out now, but is still quite hard to find.

    Aside from the BotCon figures, Classics is on hold until at least after the movie (possibly indefinitely).

    BotCon:

    A 5-pack of figures have been announced: Classics Dirge, Thrust, Thundercracker, Bugbite, and Dreadwind. Dirge and Thrust will be redecos or possibly remolds of Ramjet, and Thundercracker will be a redeco of Starscream. Bugbite will probably be based on Bumblebee, and Dreadwind may be a Jetfire redeco/remold. No pictures have been released, just names. There will no doubt be other figures available for BotCon attendees.

    The inclusion of the remaining seekers has caused quite a stir, since many (most?) fans wanted regular (non-expensive) releases for these characters.

    Titanium:

    G1 Magnus and Rodimus Prime are out and seem quite popular. War Within Megatron is out too, but is decidedly less popular due to his less-than-satisfying transformation. WW Starscream is out, with WW Sunstorm and WW Skywarp expected soon. Some version of Prowl has been announced too. Recent rumours suggest Cosmos, Shockwave, Bumblebee, Arcee, and WW Brawl will be getting figures too.

    Movie:

    New promos have been released. Pictures of most (if not all) of the toys have surfaced. A few collectors already have movie toys. Seeing the designs in action seems to be improving the fan acceptance of them somewhat. A few voice actors have been announced. See the new stuff at SectorSeven.org (password: fwiffo).

    Takara is coming out with a new Soundwave that looks like his G1 form, but it plays MP3 files off an SD Card instead of robot tapes. Rumble and Frenzy will be headphones, and we're getting shoes that transform into Prime and Megs. Oh, also the iPod version Prime. He comes in a glossy iPod white (probably scratches real easily) and his trailer turns into a fully funtional iPod charger/speakers.

    Oh, and my church called me on a mission to South Carolina.
