    FINALLY! NOW BRING ON THE NEW TOYS!

    Although I can wait because Prime, Arcee, and Starscream look as awesome as ever.

    Also the notecard says December 2011.

    edit: Geez. People say this show uses mass shifting because there's no way the character could wind up as tall as they are. However Bulkhead and Prime seem to be the appropriate size in the show in relation to their vehicle forms.

    That Optimus Prime will be my all-time favorite Optimus Prime toy (sorry, RotF Leader Optimus!). It just looks so awesome.

    I think most people are talking about Arcee, who does do a considerable mass-shift.

    It's not really a bad thing in my eyes, though, it just means the scale for the little human figures is out of whack.

    I'd like to see the back of Voyager Optimus. Kinda looks like the entire front of the truck ends up upside down to make his upper body. I hope it doesn't all stick out in backpack form like TFTM '07's Voyager OP mold.

    It's also interesting that the top of his cab ends up on the back of his feet via that joint on his knees. Looks like the entire feet/shins assembly flips up on that same joint and forms the backside of the cab in vehicle mode. Certainly a more interesting way of hiding Optimus' feet than we frequently get (looking at you G1, Classics, Masterpiece, and Animated Primes :wink: )

    Going back & forth in my head as to whether I wanna grab CVL OP or save up for Voyager OP...

    I hope we don't end up with a short Bulkhead this time around. He looks like he's at least the height of Bumblebee though, so that's a great sign!

    Also, if there are any new reveals put in the case tomorrow, could one of the photo staff get a group shot of all these figures? Individually, they all look nice, but I don't think we've got an appropriate photo comparison between all of these figures scale-wise yet.

    The back consists only of the grill, which lays flat on the back, and the sides of the truck, which lay on top of the grill. THe hood of the truck ends up on the back of his arms. He has a VERY clean back, kibble-wise.

    Don't worrry. I've seen shots of the back. They did a nice job :thumb 
    This. I know based on the reviews that he's tall, but I wanna see just how tall Deluxe Starscream is. I'm guessing he's at least RTS Cyclonus sized. BTW, Bulkhead isn't that tall in the show anyway. Only about a head or two taller the Bumblebee

    So I'm guessing you'd like a Voyager Megs if it was show accurate?

    Dang, these look spectacular. Arcee looks better and better every time I see her, it's clear that all previous attempts to display her involved horrible mistransformation. This is the TF line that will drain my wallet dry.

    This is too much... They need to come out already!
    I literally had a dream last night that I went to Walmart & bought them all. Best dream ever.

    Yeah it makes everything look really crisp here. Which is kinda the opposite of what it does in the pics of TF: Prime Arcee in G1 colours; to me it looked a little indistinct, though the colours bedded together in that large album of photos we got. Everything seems to be working together very nicely on her show accurate deco though!

    I told you guys that the Prime line looked great and it had the least amount of kibble on the current toy lines. As you guys here can see and those that are there, these toys have great transformations with little to next to no kibble what so ever.
