This Optimus Prime interests me... More than the other AOE Prime. Can someone explain the story behind this?

Anyone else seeing an opportunity for Autobot X? The spare parts guy Spike became for a while? No?

On an off-note: KREOFAN85, about your sig pic, I respectfully disagree.

Ah, so Blades gets new plane, and pterosaur toys. A little odd that the former showed up on the Rescue-Dino packaging mural. Between those two toys, Blades is now who our new, orangier Jhiaxus will keep reminding me of, leaving the mantle of "Vehicon Sunstorm" strictly on his decade-old K.B. toy.

Oh, and finally "EPIC" is a class of figure! The only word for that is...TITANic. Show-accurate, and you can see the play value for kids who want the bots so properly interact with the Burnses, but all I can think of when I see their chests open is Only Human, and think Dr. Morocco has packed them with explosives to destroy Griffin Rock. I'll have to see the Bots' minfigs inside themselves so I'll be able to think of Being John Malkovich instead.

man those AoE figures are complete garbage, that cabover prime is kinda cool but where the hell are the paint apps? Im not paying top dollar for unpainted pieces of crap. The generations look pretty good but im only going to pick up skyfire & maybe skybite, not spending a bunch of money on hasbro until they get their shit together. And is there a price for MP grimlock? I still want one but the first one was extremely overpriced & the current MPs are as well. But from what ive seen so far im going to be saving a hell of a lot of money this year.

So many dinosaurs. So, so many dinosaurs. Too bad half of it is T. rex, and the other half are the other typical, overused dinos (and Pteranodon). What I'd give for a Therizinosaurus...

Yep, he's getting rereleased, and looks to be similar to the TakaraTomy Asian exclusive version.


What are the difference between the recently reissued Asian Market version of MP Grimlock and the one that TRU had in North America a few years ago? I can already tell that he's now without the "sticker" paint apps on his shoulder/biceps in robot mode that the first NA release included.

In non-Transformers toy fair coverage, we bring you a gallery and information on My Little Pony and Star Wars toys.
For Star Wars, there are some new things, like the Command Series line that looks like traditional army men figures…but they are Star Wars characters. Also be on the lookout for the Black Series, which will have a new look for fall of this year. Upcoming figures will include a Jabba the Hutt with moving arms and opening mouth, a Darth Vader from Episode VI with a removable helmet, Chewbacca, and many more. There will be many more revealed at the San Diego Comic Con, but for now, check out the pictures below, and click on any picture to take you to the full gallery.









If you’ve been looking forward to seeing what the My Little Pony line has in store for you, check out the images below and click on any picture to take you directly to the main gallery to see everything that was showcased. In this gallery, you’ll see Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony, Equestria Girls, some new things from Play-Doh, and more.

If only the Kreo quality wasnt garbage. They dont stay together... as lego would say they have no clutch power. So no matter how cool they looks you cant assemble them and assume they will stay that way. Instead they fall apart almost on there own.

If they were made by lego, while they would cost more, they would disappear because the quality would be much better.

I have the first wave of Kreo combiners. They were a mistake to purchase.

I fail to see why non TF products should be front paged just because they were in the same toy fair. Might as well front page pictures of the restroom too since the hasbro staff "officially" used it.

Soooo with all these new movie toys, I haven't seen any sign of Starscream anywhere.

This kind of attitude is not necessary.

Hmmm, that Skybyte looks kinda wonky. I'll need some better pics to be sure.

Roadbuster looks promising, was hoping for a bit more updated look, or bulky, but not quite as shocking as Whirl.

Jetfire has me all tingly, as does Windblade.

I'd say most of the responses make me embarrassed to be a TF fan. I can understand wanting toys to collect, but at the same time people have to understand that kids have, and always will make up the majority of who buys these. Being pissed that Hasbro is actually making toys that.. wait for it... Kids might actually enjoy? :P Go figure. This is the 4th movie. We've all known for a long time that one of the biggest complaints of the movie lines was that the transformations were too complicated. This is there answer. Ya, there not going to work for everyone and I get being upset. But calling them garbage because they were designed for children, the next Gen of FT toy collectors is ridiculous.
