Classics Galvatron was unveiled today and apparently looks awesome.
Hasbro is now taking the Star Wars Transformers and combining them with the Marvel Transformers and they will now collectively be known as Transformers Crossovers.
Animated Jazz is also on display, and according to Ryan, looks very much like the Mach 5, the car from Speed Racer.
Expect pictures later today!
Edit: In another update, it appears the designs for the Transformers Movie sequel are well underway. In a conversation with Aaron Archer, Ryan found out that Hasbro has been working with the Paramount/Dreamworks for the past 3 weeks. The current designs that they have come up with have been submitted to Tomy/Takara.

Sounds great, I CANNOT wait to see pictures. If they look anything like Galvie from the recent Spotlights, well, I'll wait to see.

They are already working on TF2 figs. Aaron Archer already spent 3 weeks with the movie folks. The designs have already been shown to Takara.

UPDATE: We've received word from our man at Toyfair, Matt Greenbaum, that Universe Galvatron will be a deluxe-sized tank, in G1-inspired colors, so purple and an orange cannon. The figure will manage to be grey in vehicle mode but purple in robot mode. More info as it develops. No pictures yet.
Just wets my appetite for those pictures!

Also, Transformers Crossovers, I like it, it's a good way to tie in all these lines without upsetting the main.
Still I've been hoping for a decent not just Megatron repaint Galvatron forever!
Why did I flake on the date for Toy Fair this year
