TRANSFORMERS THE RIDE
Mark Woodberry talks about creating rides based on pop culture properties. They like to collaborate with the originator and this started with the Jurassic Park ride and followed by rides for James Cameron, and Revenge of the Mummy.
All those things have been brought into making Transformers the Ride 3-D, set for a launch in 2012. Involves state-of-art motion ride with 4D project imagery.
Michael Bay is a consultant on the ride and they have tapped Cullen and Welker as Prime and Megatron for the ride voices. Other voice talent from Transformers history are also included as voices in the ride.
Ride is based on the NEST mission to find the shard of Allspark. NEST needs the Autobot's help to transport the shard and Evac helps them out. Ride will feature face-offs with Ravage and other Dececpticons.
The next scene we are treated to is with Prime as we follow him through the streets of Chicago to complete mission. Ride flies though air and up on top of buildings, with Prime saying "Only you can save the Universe."

So far I'm loving the TFP toys especially the cons I want voyager Starscream, Skyquake, Soundwave, Knockout.....Yum.DOTM toys seem meh to me, I might get the deluxe Soundwave. The HA Soundwave seems to be disappointing, alt mode is nice bot mode....not so much. However I do like the way Lazerbeak looks.
Unicron would also triple in price on the first day on Amazon. The prices there are crazier then eBay'sEDIT - Nevermind I was wrong loosk like Amazon is getting Unicron. Damn and here I thought Hasbro learned from the Piranacon Mistake with BBTSSo I guess keep an eye on Amazon. Hopefully we can get him before they jack up the prices insanely.
Those aren't even chicken legs because even chicks have legs. Those appear to be tiny tri-pods at the end of his knees. I keep looking at the pic but I just dont see any mass anywhere that would indicate its mistransformed. Makes me sad in my heat.

Probably Hasbro going, you didn't order enough, while Walmart probably ordered 100 times more then Amazon. So Walmart Got Unicron.Most people would rather shop at Walmart then Amazon.its all in how much money can Hasbro makeLook at Big Bad Toy Store. They are still trying to unload Piranacon. Who would have sold out at Walmart. I'm betting Hasbro also took a look at that in their decisionI love Amazon and would rather shop there and wait a week rather than going to Wal-Mart for the instant gratification. Not to mention, i would have gotten free shipping on Amazon for orders over $25 like they always do. But whatever. I'll get him where he ends up.HA Soundwave has to be mistransformed. His legs look tiny. Deluxe is freakin awesome. Will be buying all of them however. Prime Soundwave looks way better then his CGI model. Don't care too much for anything else aside from Dark Steel and Junkheap. Playschool Bots looks cool though.I hope you're right regarding HA Soundwave. l would hate to skip on him because of chicken legs.

What happened to Unicron being an Amazon exclusive
I do NOT like Soundwave's MechTech weapon. Looks goofy in alt mode. Soundwave however... :loveThe "red" Ironhide looks decent enough, but they're still using that horrible Voyager mold :pukeHA Soundwave looks funky... especially in the legs... but that alt mode... :droolSo to get Leadfoot you have to get Topspin again LAMEPrime Wheeljack looks hawtEvac looks interestingNo word of Leader class Megatron or Soundwave... bummer
2011 most expansive year ever LOL funny cause it is definitely not the most expansive year for Transformers LOLFirst Off The Director of Marketing Sarah She needs to be fired, she isn't doing her job (Proof is on the shelves)Evac's deluxe mold looks cool. I will have to buy himJunkheap his name is JunkyardSky Shadow He's Black Shadow Dammit! get it right!Soundwave's Deluxe looks way better then his ROTF mold, will definitely be getting himSo much for Que, I will definitely get WheeljackJason X ill definitely be happy Ironhide is getting the red treatment (Cannon Force Ironhide)Ultimate Prime is only a Voyager Prime with Trailer and lazy design = not worth the moneyCan;t wait to add HA Soundwave to the Human Alliance ShelfWith Human Alliance Leadfoot, they better be making a Human Alliance Top SpinThey did a lazy job with the Twin Twist repaint, can't tell if Twin Twist has a different head thoughDeluxe DOTM Prime looks worse then the Ultimate Prime = Not worth the moneySo Unicron will be a Walmart Exclusive Sweet, that means there will be a lot of him outPrime's Voyager Prime still looks like crap. THink I found the third series where I wont be buying any of the Prime's (Energon, Animated, and now Prime)Why would you want to wear the SDCC Prime, Optimus Prime around your neck That is so stupid. Must be Sarah's faultDon't care for cyberversePrime's Soundwave and Laserbeak, Knockout look decent, might have to pick them upWe are going to get a Wheeljack and a Skyquake before a Ratchet WTF!
