When's the sales pitch panel? I doubt we'll get much (if anything) new until then.

I thought they were showing the other 25th Anniversary toys as well.
No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

The panel is on Saturday as usual. We'll probably see the 25th toys after the panel.

That's good. I can't wait to see what Cheetor, Hound, Hot Shot, and Cyclonus look like.

Mighty Muggs FTW! That is seriously the most interesting thing there. I must have them. Looks like Megs, Soundwave, and Bumblebee will be available as well! Awesome!!!

More photos.

Nemesis Prime's bio mentions Straxus.

Supposedly, the silver deco for Animated Bumper Battlers Jazz is just a miscolored display piece. He already hat the same color at BotCon, was probably the same one and they didn't catch the error yet.

In a non-Transformers related note, we finally get to see the G.I. Joe anniversary figure of Matt Trakker that has been announced a while ago.

Wow.

Great photos as usual. This time at least TFW isn't going down like at Botcon.

The Thirteen prolly has to do with the original 13. Now we'll finally see The Fallen or even Vector Prime again.

So is Drift gonna be a toy or something?

Uhg, that Nightwatch Prime is terrible. I liked leader Movie Nightwatch (voted with my wallet for that recolor) but this one is gawdawful.
Come on and wind me up.

It will do.

Maybe, maybe not. Probable on Vector. The Fallen... who can say. Depends if Pat Lee's entitled to a "created by" credit.
