If anyone has any questions about the event feel free to post here, there are probably some things I forgot about.

I love that Death Star framework behind the Arc-170 on the box art. Very nice

We've seen a prototype of these.

"-Tons of mock up Revenge of the Fallen toys behind the scenes to show retailers including a Bumblebee Voice Changer Helmet and train set"

What is the train set all about?

Unfortunately it was just a packaging mock-up with no toys in it but you just jogged my memory. Apparently a robot will be included that will interfere with the train and cause if to head back in the other direction I believe.

Re: Canadian Toy & Hobby Fair 2009 Report

Was there any vintage transformers there? I thought about going to this show but their it sound like no tfs, plus I was a little busy. I haven't been watching for shows too closely, but I assume there hasn't really been much going on lately.

Anything more specific you can tell us about the ROTF stuff? If not here, then at Cybertron.ca or TFW?

This is an industry only event, not open to the public, and not with vendors selling at their booths. Retailers are showing buyers what will be hot this year.
