Transformers Robots in Disguise! This turned out pretty well - there aren't a lot of exciting new entries here as Hasbro plays it somewhat coy about the line's future. Supposedly we're getting more shows and I'm hearing buzz of line extensions. I can say we're getting Strongarm with Sawtooth, another armor pack. Those things are fun. New Mini-Con single packs can become weapons or dinosaurs, like Tricerashot - a dinosaur gun. How awesome is that?

The Platinum Edition Bumblebee and Grimlock was confirmed to be exclusive to retailer (and employer) Entertainment Earth. The set was created in response to the lack of traditional Voyager-class toys early on with this line, with Grimlock being retooled from War for Cybertron Grimlock and Bumblebee has a nifty sword. Grimlock has exclusive deco and the mold is exclusive to this set in the USA, while Bumblebee has a metallic yellow finish and, in person, looks great.
Other highlights: Warrior-class Windblade and Scorponok. One-Step Bisk. A new packaging design. Groundbuster. There aren't a ton of new Decepticons here, and it seems they're keeping the line conservative, but at least you've got something to look forward to in a few months.
