CNN news story reveals Earth Mode Megtron (and Cybertron mode Bulkhead?!?)

Posted by:

CNN recently did a story on 2008 toy trends interviewing a Hasbro employee about upcoming Hasbro toys. Among these toys were a set of Transformers items including role play electronic blasters, a transforming hand held game, and 3 figures from the TF: Animated toy line: Earth mode Optimus Prime (perhaps larger than Voyager sized...looks huge), Earth mode Megatron (First time seen. Looks Voyager sized), AND what looks an awful lot like a Cybertron mode (or perhaps even season 2 mode) Bulkhead (never previously seen or even announced). I have seen/transformed the Voyager Bulkhead figure and the one on the table is not it, yet it has the same windows/styling on his torso as the Bulkhead we know... Could it be that Hasbro has another Bulkhead figure in store for us? The purple thing on his head at the beginning of the interview is quite possibly a toy version of "Headmaster", who according to the episode synopsis "takes control of an Autobot." (see the 2008 section side pannel for a more detailed spoiler.) We'll keep you posted. In the mean time, enjoy this very brief sneek peak brought to us by CNNmoney.com

I can hardly see him in the video. (Earth mode animated Megatron.) I want cybertron mode more.

Hard to get a good look at the Animated figures. Earth Prime looks huge, Bulkhead looks the same, and Megs has quite the resemblence to G1. That's what I caught from the view I got. That guy focused more on the human real gear. I'd probably like the human real gear if I was still a kid. But now I'm a big kid and I want the figures.

Shame there was no close up of the TF action figures. And he should have shown that Ironman figure close up as well!

I did not know TF was on CNN? It is a very bad and brief picture but I can make it out and I can believe Megatron Earth mode toy.

That Prime sure looks big, maybe it´s the Leader class version, but the prototype pictures showed some kind of winged thingy. The Bulkhead toy looks Ultra to my poorly trained eye. As Jazz said, more pics of that megs Plz.
