2. Is Lazerback gonna be the Predacon Bumblebee?
3. Not sure what to make of Arcee just yet. Need more pics.

Nice to see that Prime vs. Megatron image though. As far as I know that's the first time we've seen OP's upgraged form in CG. Beefy. Not quite Fatimus... Beefimus.

Vertebreak is an awesome name, and a pretty cool toy. Whilst I wish they were Deluxes, the Legion Terrorcons are pretty beast as well.

I am seriously digging those Terrorcons. I always thought Blot looked awesome. This Beast Hunters Abominus will fit right in with my Classics/Universe/Generations/Reveal The Shield Decepticons.

BH Arcee? I can wait for Generations now that I've got the FE version.
Terrorcons? looking darn good. It's also so awesome that they've made a whole 2 different weapons for Cyberverse toys.

Vertebreak is awesome, but unless he's in the show he can hang on the shelf forever more.
Since we're on the Website Update, if you get a little lag (like I did) you can spot the new background for the website, which includes Optimus Prime, Megatron, Arcee, Soundwave, Bumblebee, Knock Out, Ratchet, Starscream, Bulkhead, and Shockwave about to go head to head (to head to head to head...). Doesn't have Optimus' changed model, but I thought it was noteworthy.
Edit: Now I'm not so sure it's particularly new, as I went back to the Transformers Website and it was different than before, but I never noticed it.

Seriously, whats not to like.

So, I just went through the whole laboratory mission and there is a really cool video when you reach the main lab at the end. It shows Hun-Grr, Rippersnapper and Twinstrike running through the lab. Then there's a long slow stalking type walk by Skystalker (see what I did there). Then at the end Predaking breathes fire and they all escape through the hole he just opened. Also, it starts off with Shockwave running away from them and firing behind him before he hides. Pretty cool. Skystalker especially looked really sweet. This was all in a form of CGI so they all looked great and I must admit I really dig the bright colors on the Terrorcons. All of the Preds look pretty good together.
One last note, there is a section of "beast armor" Autobots where Huffer was listed along with all of the other ones already mentioned. Prowl was also shown, though the picture was actually cyberverse Smokescreen.
I really enjoy these viral ad campaigns and cannot wait for Beast Hunters! Though this makes me even sadder that it will end as soon as we all really get into it.

However... I'm not too keen on the animated hot rod -esque weapon

Probably involves breaking your spine, yes.

the legion repaint Flamewar is pretty close already, I'm sure anyone could do it to the deluxe.

These things looks lame - the alt mode and bot mode are just too similar in some cases.

Transformers characters don't have anywhere near enough terrible puns in their names as it is. I'm glad to see someone at Hasbro is remedying this.
So, we've got Waves 3 and 4 revealed... my guess is we get the retools/redecos of Lazerback (again) and Ripclaw to fill out the numbers in Wave 5. Doesn't look like we're getting any deluxe scale Dinobots, I'm sad to say.
Still, plenty of bad guys to work with, which is always a plus in my book. I'll probably get Arcee so I can have all the revealed Autobots, but I'll need to see it in person before I'm absolutely sure. They didn't bother to make her nearly as distinct as the retools of Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Ratchet.
