    Awesomeness?

    Has to be a MB reference, therefore more movie stuff. I keep trying to remind myself: This is Toyfair, not Botcon. But then denial always gets the best of me.

    However, I was honestly thinking they would have at least shown off some of the new Generations stuff we already knew about, meaning Wheeljack, Thundercracker, and Warpath in package along with some of the other items that STILL have not reached any retailers yet (where the f*** are Grapple and Lugnut?!).

    Perhaps they're getting final approval to release info about the Saturday night party at Botcon. Paramount party part 2??

    It's just going to be something movie related.

    There's a DotM event today at ToyFair.

    Twitter pages don't update regularly for me. The BotCon Twitter page still has a message that says "@GeneralTekno Just Joe" listed as the most recent tweet when I go to it.

    "Bout ready to start. Sitting in theater. Phones need to be turned off..." -- yeah, it must be the movie footage that he's talking about.

    Who knows. It's possible, I suppose, that they'll put it up on Bay's site. On the other hand, I imagine showing off the 3D is part of the purpose for this, so maybe not too.

    So all this teasing has been about something we can't actually see, nice.
    I hope they have some new generations to reveal in the club mag soon because that's really what I want to see most right now.

    I'd like to see that but have the shuttle transform into a giant mechanical bird and the crawler be a crawler/APC/lion triple changer.
