    Arcee and Chromia alone have me gleeful, that Superion news is absuuurd. Voyager Optimus from IDW is great, Autobot Megatron, a friggin leader class Armada Megatron, and a new Brainstorm that happens to be a headmaster? wow.

    Rollbar is a one step changer.

    Confusion there, Hot Shot is a repaint of Crosshairs in the colours of G1 TRACKS.

    I highly doubt they've finished designs for any toys of that line. It comes out in about a year.

    I doubt Hasbro is ever going to make an Overlord that kicks as much ass as the 3rd party one.

    It wouldn't make any difference to me as I doubt i'll be able to find most of it anyway and as a mater of principle I don't pay premium prices for supermarket toys.

    Even a piece of art would be nice.

    Like the difference between what the things would look like on the show and what the toy of the things would look like - will the line take it's inspiration from the more than 5 step toys or will it be all aimed at the under 8's and not have what many would consider a "Proper" toyline at all... These are quite crucial questions I'd say - at least a drawing of what a toy of TV-based toy bee might look like might ease some minds... or start some worrying early.

    Not to mention there is the question of proper toys of the Rescue Bots... I'm sure they'd be very popular if made as normal Transformers with normal articulation.. It makes a lot of sense to make them sometime.... even if it's only as a gift set... they don't even have to be super complex - just well jointed.
    Something like a simplified Human Alliance only based on Rescuebots would be beyond awesome to me.

    Images, no.

    From the same place, the following was psoted:

    Not sure if true, especially with Beast Era TFs appearing in Generations. Presumably, they refer to the '300 years later' part of BW. Instead making the Beasts run concurrent with the Cars. Ofcourse,this can all be complete and utter bullshit as well. The place is known for it.

    The Generations AOE stuff (or lack thereof) was completely laughable.

    The Generations Classics stuff was pretty cool.

    Yup.

    The best part of the AOE Generations thing is at least we'll get better pics of the five pack.

    Hasbro really put most of the focus on regular Generations.

    This Leader Megatron may be the first Megatron that I own.

    Which is what they collectors wanted, but we'll still have people complaining in these forums about everything.

    True, but also not. Have you looked at the price of petroleum? Transformers are made with and shipped using petroleum.

    I'm not defending them. I didn't like Bruticus/Ruination so I didn't buy it, but to pretend that a business that deals exclusively in petroleum-derived products isn't still suffering due to the out of control price of oil is a bit myopic.

    I feel like that Beast Wars not being canon would be mentioned in our panel. That's a spurious claim if ever I heard it.
