I anticipate that we'll not only see an influx of "toys" that most of collectors won't want to touch with a ten foot pole. Ie: remote control stuff, various recolors and repackagings of the same hero and villain figures with either a new excessory or new figure with it in a two pack. However, we'll probably also see some higher end collectible stuff come our way too.

Also, I would expect some clothing merchandise. Definently in t-shirts and underware for the kids. Possibly some baseball caps too. Adults will probably get some t-shirts, maybe some boxers with the autobot or decepticon symbol on them like the batsignal boxers that came out around Batman Begins.

I'd also expect toys that aren't your typical TF toy... like a TF powerwheels, or tricycle or something like that. And definently a TF picture-thingy with those rotating stills in the bionocular type thingy... forget what those are called though.

In other words... Hasbro is going to try to make as much freakin' money off of this thing as they possibly can!

I am expecting kickass toys who are put into some semblance of scale, atleast for the ground vehicles. i doubt believe hasbro cares about the latter and as such I guess ill settle for the former.

I am not expecting too much from the toys except that they will still be on shelves long after the movie is on DVD like all movie toys seem to do. I recently just saw Hulk movie toys still on shelves. Granted it was a KB but still.

Giant foam Transformer hands that make noise when you hit stuff with them!!!

And I'm also eagerly awaiting "Potatomus Prime"... which, the more I think about it, the more I realize it could actually work... faceplate instead of lips, antenna thingies for ears, a helmet, and eyes...

Looking at Mr. Potato Darth, there is in fact a precedent for potato head Prime. And there could be wheels, cab etc for truck mode. IT. COULD. WORK!

I wouldn't think there'd be THAT many dumbed down toys considering the movie is shooting for a PG-13 rating, that's not exactly the cartoon's market.

Honestly I'm finding myself caring less and less about collecting the movie toys. They'll have to be pretty damned amazing for me to buy them.

I forsee each figure coming in 3 different sizes. Kinda how you see F4 toys in 6 and 12 inch sizes. More than likely, the larger the toy, the more detail it will have.

Anybody remember the Rambo toyline?
I reckon the merchandising will be done to death on this thing, with transformers names and logos plastered on everything, from lunchboxes, to child-size Optimus prime blasters and lego-style versions of the...oh wait, we have all that crap already don't we?

I reckon that its pretty certain that there will be a lot of stuff on sale associated with this movie. If we are lucky there might be one or two gems hidden among the piles of crap we usually get.
