    What does "coming sooner than expecting" mean? Is there a date?

    I suppose it'll be like a preview wave before they launch the full line near the end of the year. They'll probably do Bulkhead and Optimus at larger scales then.

    Hope they do Cliffjumper.

    I think the show's character designs are too similar to the movie's character designs and therefore the toys will be too similar to what we've gotten from the movie toys. But I'll wait and see before I decide if they're worth my dime.

    Well, I'll be looking for a Bulkhead to go with my collection (didn't care for either of the Animated figures put out) so I'll be keeping an eye on this line.

    What if the Generations Arcee listing was for Prime Arcee? I would laugh and laugh and laugh.

    At least the Animated Arcee haters would finally have a new target for their ire. :)

    I'm guessing it means the toys might actually be out before Season 2?

    I was always guessing that they'd ship after the 1st Wave of Dark of the Moon items and was guessing at August 2011 as a Street Date in NA

    I'll probably get Cliffjumper, Arcee, Bulkhead, Ratchet, and maybe Megatron

    I'm excited for this line. If the toys are good I think I'll collect a complete show cast to display.

    Megatron. With the exception of the fusion cannon and the more Generation one styled head, and a few other picky details.

    I cant wait for these toys. Hopefully we will see some voyagers, particularly Optimus, Megatron and Bulkhead from the characters we've seen so far. Starscream and Soundwave would make cool voyagers too, but I think they could work alright as deluxes. As for all the others - definitely deluxes.

    Also, please let Soundwave come with his minion!
