    If that's true then I'm happy with all of those choices, Astrotrain is a bit of an odd choice but could still make for a very cool figure.
    Having two versions of Prime is a good idea but I can see it annoying some folks, both Megatron and Soundwave being megas is awesome news.

    I would assume that the prime is going to be exactly the same in the voyager class as the deluxe, the added cost being just the trailer. I wouldn't think it's actually two different molds. might be obvious, but I figure I'd say it anyway.

    and jetfire, shall we take bets on whether or not it ends up looking exactly like skyfire?

    That's a quirky selection if true. Particularly Astrotrain.

    Well except for Jetfire... those are all characters strongly used in TFTM. :D 

    A great selection... but this was the best time in the world to do Ratchet and Ironhide. To bad. :(

    Now this is starting to sound like the Neo G1 line to me. Due to the release dates and figures listed. Am I wrong?

    Ok, I don't get it. Is this the Neo line? New toys?

    It is supposedly the line up for the Neo G1 line but is only a rumour at this point.

    I'm just taking odds here, but Cybertronian Enquirer was right about the Cybertron Red Alert redeco and Skywarp shipping in the same wave, "Armada Optimus Prime", the latter shipping in the same wave as Deluxe Unicron, and quite a number of other things too.

    I can't say for sure, though, since I don't know how many different sources they're getting their information from.

    Still hoping that the two TBD deluxes are Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, but I'm not holding my breath. Those were the two I was really looking forward to getting from this line.

    I'm seconding the guess that the Prime will be the same in both size classes, the trailer justifying the extra $10. Not really happy about that, mega would be the ideal size for Prime. Bigger than the average shmoe, but not a giant. And Grimlock and Astrotrain definitely should be bigger than deluxe.

    I'm really hoping that Jetfire is more Jetfire than Skyfire. Jetfire was a sleek badass, Skyfire was a cargo plane. He needs to be the TF Snake-eyes.

    I was never a big fan of Hot Rod, and deluxe is too big for Bumblebee.

    Otherwise, I guess I'm OK. Just that this Prime will be squared off with Destructicon Bludgeon repainted as Megatron, and this Megatron will be squared off agains LROP. Sorry, but Prime and Megs should see optic to optic.
