    I was talking to some customers at toysrus about this year being Dinobot themed toys. But one of them got really mad when I told him about a Grimlock Mr. Potatohead.

    Get the Leader, it's better (and will be cheaper) than the First Edition. Ignore what the others are saying, it is a leader class, and the Evasion Mode is a Voyager class.

    Yeah everything's going to have the same branding form now on. The only difference is the AOE stuff will have the movie logo in the corner like we've seen, plus Generations products will have the 'Generations Collector's Series' sticker. I suppose the non-movie Gen figures may have a 30th Anniversary logo on the box instead of the AOE logo. The MP Grimlock packaging has the new unified branding on it.

    I think people are getting confused. Evasion Mode Prime is a voyager, the other Optimus figure is a leader.

    Why do people not understand that the new design for Optimus, in order to be a toy that can transform, HAS TO BE A FOOPIN' SHELLFORMER!! Look at the design. See any truck parts THAT ARE NOT THE SMOKESTACKS??? You don't. So, in order for him to be able to transform, he needs to be a shellformer. A small compromise so he can still transform

    Not really a small compromise considering it is the entire figure's design.

    And not the consumer's problem they went with a poor robot design in the first place.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question, but does anyone know if the Generations Jetfire is still going to include both large guns, or is it just going to be released with one?
