Yeah. I'm really hoping the toys are good. With some of the characters, I honestly can't see how they're gonna pull it off, but hopefully their accuracy with surprise me, just like with Animated.

I want me some Eradicons. Those things are just beautiful!

Though, I hope the figures will be released in classes like so:
Deluxe: Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Ratchet, Eradicon
Voyager: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream

Arcee I could see as either being a Scout or a small Deluxe.

Bulkhead I'd like as either a short Voyager with a Deluxe-sized Robot Mode, or a very bulky standard-sized Deluxe.

Soundwave I'm not so sure. I guess he could either be a Voyager or a very tall Deluxe. And he must include a chest Deployer gimmick.

Beakdown I think would work as either a big Voyager or a Leader (he was a pretty big dude in the graphic novel).

And maybe we could get some Eradicon redecos in green, blue, and other comic colors.

Here's how I think it'll go, based on past lines.

Deluxe -

Arcee
Bumblebee
Cliffjumper
Ratchet
Soundwave
Breakdown

Voyager -

Bulkhead
Starscream

Leader -

Optimus Prime
Megatron

Obviously I have no idea about Knockout yet, since we haven't seen him. And yeah, some Eradicons would be sweet. Maybe a two-pack with both the car and plane models.

I dunno if Leader would be necessary for these two, since Optimus may be the tallest of the Autobots, but he's not that much taller than the others. Why, Ratchet, who's taller than Bulkhead BTW, comes up to Optimus' torso windows.

This would also apply for Megatron, as he's equal to Optimus in height.

I could see both Voyager and Leader versions of the characters happening.

2 reasons
1. There would be more than one scout, so they would have to shrink one of them, which would most likely be soundwave, because he's such a minor character
2. he's SO thin, he wouldnt be a good deluxe

And Soundwave's altmode is very wide. His wingspand would certainly be crippled as a Scout class. Not to mention his Deployer gimmick wouldn't function as good (or even exist at all) at that size.
