This month's ToyFare Magazine's cover story (cover featuring the new Leader Class Movie Prime) includes interivews with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Greg Lombardo, and Aaron Archer. There are only a few sneek peaks at the new ROTF Leader Prime, Voyagure Starscream and the preview figures of  Bumblebee and Soundwave. 
Notable information in article include Bonaventura stating that Devistator will be ~100-120 feet tall, and the most spoilerific information we read to date on the "The Fallen"... (spoiler warning)

Q: Who or what does the subtitle refer to?
"In the mythology, there are 13 original Transformers. For simplicity's sake, I think of them as the Apostles. The Fallen is the one who turns. He's the reason why the Transformers split into Decepticons and Autobots."

I wouldn't sweat it. Pretty much every story written is some variation on a biblical tale.

I for one think it's vey cool. For decades now Transformers has had pseudo-spiritual connotations in the writing/mythology. The concept of the spark, the matrix, Primus/Unicron, Beast Machines as a whole, the original 13 TF are also not a new concept. This idea was written extensively on in one of the BotCon stories, although I think it may be older than that. Simon Furman wrote about the original 13 as well. The ROTF writers are just borrowing/expanding on an already established TF mythology. I think it's great!

We knew a long time ago that the title referred to The Fallen himself.

Agreed, there are a lot of plot points in the various Transformer stories that are quite Biblical, even though some might not see it.
As a matter of fact, a couple of years back I came to realize that many of the lines from the Covenant of Primus read in the Beast Wars two part finale "Nemesis" was actually scripture (taken from the book of Revelation), just reworded slightly different, or edited to change to suit the story.
