      • Sideburn will likely ship right after Botcon
      • Cheetor and Ramjet pre-orders will start “this month”
      • Michael Bay Interview – emphasizes again that there’s no “stupid humor” in this one. A comparison is made to the first movie by Pete, but Bay stops him and says even in the first movie, Optimus joked around “once or twice”. It’s even less than that, apparently.
      • Exclusive first pictures of Skywarp and Bluestreak Kreons (they come with two driver Kreons in the big Optimus Prime set– Skywarp’s face looks hilariously grumpy and thuggish)
      • Kre-o is rooted in the Latin word “creo”, which means “I create”
      • No plans to sell Kreons individually
      • In 2011, there will be 29 Transformers Kreon figures released– 17 of them TFs and 12 of them human
      • Heavily hinted that TFs will not be the only Hasbro property to get the Kre-O treatment.
