    Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but there's a Japanese promo clip for Bumblebee movie toys, including Legendary Optimus Prime and what looks like a couple of new one-steps: VW Bumblebee, who doesn't look bad considering, and an Optimus Prime which uses AOE Galvatron's one step transformation (I never understood why they never made an Evasion Optimus at the time), along with TLK Barricade. Interesting that we've not heard of these yet from Hasbro given that one-steps seem to be the constant in all non-generations lines.

    @Nevermore Are there any mystery listings that might be these?

    Dang, I was hoping they’d show a little more of that Legendary Optimus Prime. I want to know if there’s anything besides the paint job that actually out-does the Wei Jiang KO. I have no interest in the 1-steps, but that big Bumblebee looks fun.

    I suddenly have a strange feeling that the Turbo Changers will be the movie figures revealed at Paris and London Comic Cons. I hope I'm wrong.

    Oh yeah, I knew about Bot Bots, the description of the other reveals was deliberately vaguely 'movie products' and we've had loads of Studio Series reveals already so I kept my expectations low, but surprises will be good. I may still get a day ticket and go on the Sunday to London.

    Whatdafk did I just watch?! It was like watching a really bad Univision promo on roids (speaking as a Latino, and from personal experience, those can induce painful cringing). The announcer sounded coked right outta his mind! :D :p 

    On a side note, that Legendary Optimus Prime is the hotness! Hastak needs to make a Masterpiece version of this yesterday.
