    Anyone else thinking what I'm thinking? We have AI Programs, like chess simulations and videogames. We now have an auto-transforming robot.

    ...I await the day when Kyle Reese time travels to kill Aaron Archer for starting Skynet.

    Ok, cool. That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure. Hopefully we get some good descriptions of the Activators and Bumpers, as they do sound interesting from what little we know about them, but some detailed descriptions would be nice (pictures would be even better, but I'm not sure what Hasbro will have in the booth where pictures will be alound, and what will be in the "behind closed doors" exibit).

    Wow, Prime looks like crap. :lol  The reason I'm laughing is that I just saved even more money for the Universe line.

    Okay... I like the detailing on Leader BH.... but unless you can takea those guns off of him(I like it, but I like show accurate stuff), I ain't buying. And 2 animated primes(Cybertron and Earth Voyager) is good enough for me.

    I still hope bulkhead has a wreaking ball. Also read this interview with Marty Isenberg . He hints that bulkhead will get into somthing aswell like Bumblebee- speed Prowl - Nature so i guess bulkhead is goin to be a weapon specialist. Which fits his personality VERY well. HE BETTER HAVE A GAD DAMN WREAKING BALL in the leader toy. interveiw here http://tformers.com/transformers-interview-transformers-animated/8992/news.html

    Rollout Prime is a helluva easy pass.

    But the real question is: Can his back kible transform into a seat?

    Not that we currently know of, but the pictures we got from the video a while back hinted at something similar. Basically he was sitting down for one reason or the other. Could have been an actual seat position made up from his kibble, but it could have also just have been bad posing, bad weight distribution, or even loose joints in his legs making him fall back onto his behind instead of standing up.

    I've seen it before - I wasn't that impressed, really. It's cool and all, but it's just a variant of stuff we've had for years.

    I'm hoping that Leader-class design shows up in the cartoon.

    Wow.

    Bulkhead's general silhouette (and color scheme) reminds me a lot of Movie Brawl.

    Optimus Prime is a must. But Bulkhead is too different from his cartoon partner.

    I'm a little confused at how obvious scans from Toyfare (though posted on another site) are linked and make frontpage news, but that's neither here nor there, as I have the mag now.

    For the sake of being fully, totally honest to Noisemaze, I think Leader Bulkhead appears quite awesome, in that it is cartoon-accurate, but with a greater level of detail and badassness. I also enjoy the level of personality inherent in the sculpt (though that goes for the Voyager too)

    Roll-out Prime is a big expensive gimmick toy, no more, no less. I'll have to see the gimmick in action before I can say whether it offsets the simplistic look or not for me.

    Leader Bulkhead looks amazing. And I like that the Leader version is different enough from the Voyager so I can justify getting both. :p 

    Regarding ROAC Optimus Prime ... I await further pics and description on the gimmicks before I decide anything. So far it looks good in alt mode, and in bot mode looks so-so ... I hate the stumpy arms he appears to have.

    I have it, and it's awesome. It's mostly a fun remote-controlled robot, but it turns into a remote controlled car, too, but it doesn't have a boatload of features like the 'bot mode does. If that was ever done with TFs... well, Hasbro's sittting on a gold-mine right here.
