Take a look at the images (and updates as we get them!) posted below:
UPDATE:Subject to Change
From Winning Moves: We may see the following games available in the next year. They are unofficial and subject to change, but we are hearing they are possible: Monopoly, Risk, Connect 4, Top Trumps - Saga edition (would be heavily based on the four movies and /or G1 animation, and similar to Star Wars trilogy edition products. And if you take a look at the box pictured, you'll note that there is even a picture of Drift featured.
Check out these R/C toys, on display from Nikko:
Word is that there will be five figures. Two that transform will be Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. They'll have lights and sounds; voicechips along with transformation noises. They are expected to retail for $59.99 and $49.99, respectively. They will be boxed in robot mode.
The helicopter is said to be a character, but there is no name at this time.
The other two RC cars shown are Lockdown and Bumblebee, and will not transform.

So that's what they meant by "Prime Minifigures." I was hoping it was something else. DAMMIT!
I'm still going to get them, though. They look fun and cool.
Also, looks like Wheeljack & Shockwave are also getting toys, since they were not previously listed. On top of that, the paper below lists Hardshell, Soundwave, and Bumblebee!
Though they're not what I wanted, I'm still going to collect them all!

welcometothedarksyde wrote:All this is great Hasbro, but what about those Masterpiece figures? Those would really fit in for the 30th anniversary. Those minifigs look neat, but I pretty much have them already and they transform, they're called Botshots. That mug looks awesomeTakara makes the Masterpieces, not Hasbro.
And the ones that are already out that Hasbro hasn't released yet would require licenses from the companies whose cars the altmodes are based on, and their smaller sizes make them trickier to fit into Hasbro's size class/pricepoint system.
The reason Takara can get around both is because the licenses are easier for them to acquire than they are for Hasbro, and Takara doesn't have a set size class/pricepoint system like Hasbro does.

The first movie trilogy toys were my favourite; DOTM were perfect. But the layout of this AOE line is too China oriented, too... anthro, with human body shape as metal was a costume for a human being... No, they're simply UGLY.

But his design is alright, nothing shocking , but I am really liking the New Optimus and new Bumblebee, sorry if they won`t have accurate toys...

This was the Japanese art:

They're hard foam kits, panels that slot into each other. I'll see if I can take a better look today.
