    I'm a bit disappointed, but Hasbro hasnt released a Voyager Op in the series for a while now, so I think he's about due.

    The art seen here is on the Legend's card. I wouldn't hold out hope. :(

    You're right, but we really are only at Toyfair, AND we are _just_ starting to get info on a series of toys that will last into 2014.

    We have at a minimum two big conferences left that usually give us big reveals.

    If Hasbro have gone to all the trouble of working closely with IDW for this line then I have no doubt that they'll be a bigger version of IDW's prime designcoming before long.

    I'd like to say the same for stealth bomber megs but that just doesn't seem anywhere as likely.

    No, the Spotlight Optimus Prime uses the Masterpiece Oprimus toy as it's design.

    Considering MP-10 didn't exist when Spotlight: Optimus came out...

    Well Hasbro did state that TF 30th runs through 2014, but it begins this year. My feeling is that next year, there will mainly be the TF4 movie line AND the 30th line.

    So I think we *could* see a Generations Optimus in a much larger scale. Maybe voyager, maybe even Ultimate with a trailer. Who knows.

    I don't think Hasbro would stop at a Legends figure. After all, both Megatron and Bumblebee are in the Legends line too, yet have larger versions on the way(deluxe).

    Now that we're past BotCon, anyone have feelings one way or the other about a new CHUG Optimus being on the way? Think we could see one at SDCC?

    Uh, I believe the Legends Optimus with Roller and Orion Pax deluxe will be the only Optimi we'll be getting in the near future.

    I would say there could be the smallest sliver of hope until SDCC. The last couple of years they have seemed to hold back one or two things to be the big reveals there.

    I agree, since the picture in that link is the Legends Optimus and Roller. Though who knows, I'd be surprised if HaskTak didn't try to push another Optimus out next year.

    It would make sense as part of the 30th.
