CNN has posted a video clip called "2008 Toy Trends" in which a Hasbro representative reveals some of the new Hasbro toys for 2008, which includes some new items not seen before, including a new handheld game as a quick glimpse at a new Transformers Animated Megatron figure, presumably his earth mode which, according to previous reports, is some sort of V-22 Osprey-like helicopter.

See the video clip by clicking here (the Transformers segments begins at about the 50 seconds mark)

The Megatron toy looks very good although that man didn't at least held him in his hand so we could see it better.

the perspective from that film is rather odd, it makes relative sizes difficult to determine. megs looks small but when the guys hand comes down near it you see how large it is. some weird things though (note that there is an edit, we miss them showing prime and bulkhead) bulkhead is not the voyager toy we know, his feet have joints and he has guns on his arms, also he at first has some type of purple helmet on his head! maybe these are prototypes/test shots?? prime looks glossy like the earlier shots we say of the toys.

Are you sure it's Bulkhead and not his Decepticon counterpart Lugnutz?

No, the yellow thing is a Movie Bumblebee Arm Blaster.
Megatron was the black and gray figure standing in the middle of the table.

no its a osprey which is basically a hybrid of a helicopter and plane definitely a Voyager figure....in the vid you can just make out the blades I think...but its hard to say...they could have made it similar to a v-tol/harrier type....you can also make out a gun and a sword which looks sweet...

yeah I think that the bulkhead figure and prime is definitely closer to leader class especially the prime...
