Is the kid in the middle supposed to be a boy or a girl? The way it's drawn looks pretty gender-ambiguous, but "Bud" suggests "boy" unless it's short for "Rosebud" or something... plus there's a precedent for the "two boys, one girl" model in Armada, or even Masterforce (the Headmasters jr.).

There is quite a Last Autobot vibe to him...

I wonder if the finished products will have all of the paint apps of the previews.

What were they speculating about? All I'm getting is a bunch of question marks.

The animation models certainly look fab, as do the toys. I just hope Gonzo's gonna make them move as prettily as they stand.

Considering that he's listed as GC-03, I'd imagine Vector Prime's a Cybertron/Autobot of some manner. His animation model description does have the word ancient in it, by the way.

Thanks to the animation model page, I've translated the Ironhide-type truck as Jackshot and the halftrack as (I think) Backpack. It's hard to tell whether it's Backpack, Backback, Packpack, or Packback because of the little font and that damn Fan2Fan watermark, but Backpack seems most likely.

I implied this before, but my post disappeared... I think Burrito/Blit will probably be Blight in English-land. The closest literal translation is actually Breet, but since Hasbro has registered Blight, that's probably it. Speaking of the Microns/Minicons, did anybody notice how much Bumper's head looks like Optimus?

This line rules. I cannot wait.

while the majority of them look incredible am i the only one who thinks that while Megatron has some very nice looking alt' forms his robot form looks out some how especially compared to Convoys robot mode, he seems to lack any reasonable weapons in this mode . heck suppose time will tell. Otherwise very nice looking line.

That Starscream looks insane... I might actually buy a new Transformer again, other than an Alternator.

Laurie looks like she's got quite the forceful personality. I hope that'll play out in a "strong person" way, not in a "b*tch" way.

P.S. Release date's for Japan. No idea what's planned in terms of Hasbro versions.
