If it's the two pack with OP and the human figs, it's deluxe class, set for release in July.

According to TFwiki, the TF Prime line will be be released in December 2011. If I recall correctly, there's a Voyager OP in the works, and almost definitely a voyager Megatron as well. Deluxe Soundwave is confirmed, and he is said to come with the bat drone that fits in his chest, and it doubles as a blade-weapon.

A voyager would be nice, but I really want a leader. I hope Hasbro doesn't decide to skip out on leaders for this line, as there is a lot of potential for some great figures. I'll have to get Soundwave as well. I like his look in the show, but I do wish he would actually talk, especially since Frank Welker is on the cast.

Leader class figs seems unlikely since it's not a main line. All their Leader shelf space will be going to DOTM stuff, I reckon.

Maybe if the show and these toys do well they'll branch out more.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

So far the only Prime toy that I wanna buy is Megs. He looks pure epic and mind you he might be better than the WFC version :D.

Megatron looks awesome despite the slight mistransformation in the picture (the piece sticking above his head should be on his back).

Optimus, not so much.

I'm with you on that. Sadly, Orci and Kurtzman have some kind of fixation with "radio-talk." According to TF-wiki, they were planning on letting Bee speak normally in ROTF, but they were so in love with the idea of him talking through the radio that they just decided to make him remain a mute in ROTF.

And now their love for radio-ese has flowed over to TF Prime. :roll:

Looks nice, but the 'First Edition' tag sounds cheesy for a brand that's been around forever.

Deluxe Megs looks nice, bit of a shame the sub-par deluxe Prime gets the super-exclusive packaging.
