    Not to late at all. Thats why i want to know if that gimmick has already been added to the Figure.
    I really want to see more Informations and can not wait for an Optimus and Megatron TF5 announcement.

    It is not hard to do this at all. Comicave Optimus Prime, which i also own, has an easy Magnetism Mouth Plate Switch.

    I only wait for Pre Orders of Optimus and Megatron, for an Instant Buy on their Bambaland Store.
    I also hope, that G.O.D / Garatron will release their Unicron soon.
    I want to Display the Epic Battle of Optimus + Megatron VS Unicron at my Shelf :D

    Is there a specific thread started for the 3A's G1 prime that will be on sale soon? I did a search but could not find anything.

    another Question i have.

    Decemberist said the first figures will happen around the Movie Release.

    Does he mean they will up for Pre-Order around the Movie release? Or that the Figures are already available around the Movie release?

    I still can not imagine that the first TLK Figures will be released in June / July.

    It is a rather short time Window. That means these Figures should be available for pre order in February / March already.

    Yes, interchangeable face plates for Optimus will be included.

    The first figures for TLK will be up for pre-order around the release of the film.

    Oh, thank you so much! For Information and Face Plate switch on Optimus!

    I hope TF 5 Megatron (That means, if you are going to produce him)
    will have also a Gimmick to Switch Horns / Tusks to Face Protection.

    If not, it is not that bad at all, but i would prefer him with "Open Mouth / without Tusks" if he ever should be released / Produced!

    My Opinion also is, that TF 4 Galvatron and TF 5 Megatron are the best Designs ever; because this time he even has REAL Fingers.

    That poorly Rusty Body of Megatron in TF 1-3 does not fit to the Glory Megatron at all, he had an cool Alt Mode in TF 3, but seeing him this
    Way, rusty, beaten, does not fit to him at all.

    Iam happy that the Designers choose a much more "undamaged" Form for him at TF 4 and TF 5.
    Can not wait to see 3A Megatrons Version!

    Thanks again for the Informations!

    :D 

    Was that a hint that you're doing Optimus?!?!

    Not that there was ever any doubt. :p  New Prime is clearly the most obvious design to tackle from TF4 and 5. I would have been shocked if you didn't. Beyond that we'll see.

    @decemberist

    i hope you read this. I write this, because i think it could be Important,
    just how i asked about the Faceplate Information for Optimus.

    I have also bought the AOE Optimus Prime from the Company ComiCave.

    Sadly, they put his Legs (That are very heavy) on a Plastic Hip Ball Joint.
    The Legs itself on the Ball Joints, are VERY tight, and a lot of Force is needed to move them.

    On my Figure, the Plastic Ball Joint broke because of this, because it could not withstand the Force that is needed to move the Legs.
    I did get an Exchange for the Figure.

    So i hope, you will add again, those clicking Joints as you did on your Transformers 3 Figures.

    Please concentrate on a STRONG Hip / Leg Joint, because the weight of the Legs itself can easily be underestimated, and could break if they are moved a lot.

    Wow, very cool that they're doing AOE and TLK.
    Gotta say that I REALLY would love to see Grimlock in robot mode!
    And all the others mentioned by the rest of you guys would be great too. lol
    Ooh, I wonder if they will do Galvatron? :)

    I also hope so. At least, that they tell us, if they will do Galvatron AND / OR TF5 Megatron.

    Because i want TF5 Megatron so bad!

    Not that they tell us AFTER they have produced Galvatron "sorry no TF5 Megatron" and then Galvatron is sold out.

    I really want Optimus (hope with Blue Eyes and / or Purple Eyes) and Megatron for my Display
    and then finally waiting for Garatron G.O.D - 02 Unicron, for my Final Epic Display Optimus + Megatron VS Unicron at my Shelves.

    That is why i really want to know, which Characters they are planning to do. They do not need to show Prototypes,
    a List of what comes would be enough for me, to plan my Finances well.

    They anounced their DOTM line up pretty early on. Hopefully they'll anounce AOE and TLK at the same time. I would think TLK Megatron would probably be a pretty safe bet (but I have no special inside info here).

    I'd be more interested in Galvatron. But I don't know if I can swing any more of these. They are expensive, my wife isn't particularly on board and they're too big to even think about hiding. So I may just be done (except that I absolutely WILL get 60's black BB if they do him).

    Not sure if I'd prefer Grimlock in bot or Dino mode. Probably dino just because I feel like the better toys so far have done his bot mode more justice than his dino mode. But that's neither here or there- I don't think I'd pick him up.

    I'd shy away from Grimlock due to the inevitable scale difference. No way it's going to match up with the others.
    That being said, it would look awesome!
    If we're allowed to dream big, Devastator in 3A format would be glorious.

    Like others have mentioned, I look forward to a lineup. The previous tidbit about no ROTF Megatron saved me the headache of waiting for something that wasn't going to happen.

    I have all 4 DOTM figures, and look forward to the new ones.

    So 3A started with TF 4 Evasion Mode Optimus Prime huh?

    Already looks very awesome! It already says in Item Description, that he will come with different Face Plates.
    Hm that is strange, i do not remember Optimus put on his Mouth Protection when he was in Evasion Mode in AoE

    I still want to know, in which Line 3A will release the New Optimus Prime, AoE or The Last Knight?
    I hope new Optimus Prime and Megatron will also have different Face Plates, not just Evasion Optimus.

    But it is the right Step from 3A in my Opinion.

    Iam dying to know how their New Optimus Prime and TF5 Megatron will look like!

    Can not wait to see it! I have already put my Money aside for New Optimus Prime and TF5 Megatron!
    Pre Order will be done instantly when these go online on Bambaland in June / July

    I found this originally thinking they were 3P, but it now seems these are 3A figures
