    Saw a few leaks on 4chan /tfg/ thread and decided to share them here. In my opinion, they seem to be realistic enough to be considered true. What do you think? Fake or not?

    4chan is about as trustworthy as a Dingo in a Maternity ward.

    All plausible. Good money had Snaptrap as a Hun-Grrrrrrrrr retool.
    The repeated toys and not all the Seacons in the same wave fits the pattern for the line.

    The only slight slag is that would mean Rippersnapper in Waves 2, 4 & 5.

    It looks like someone tried to make a list “not fake” by changing some of the names. 4chan is hardly a reliable source.

    I’d say it’s as fake as a stripper’s tits, but who knows...

    ditto this. The Hun-grrr mold has been widely speculated as Snaptrap, not Grimlock. Awesome if true!!!!

    But the skin is still real.

    Moral of the story? There still may be a hint of truth.

    I'm not going to speculate till toy fair shows off the rest of the line. I'm as excited for this third part trilogy as anyone else but just might have to wait till next month to find out more.

    I’d almost bet that Toy Fair DOESN’T show us anything past what has been already leaked from the “big leak” last year. We may see the wave 3 stuff we haven’t seen officially, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for anything that’s slated to come out at the end of the year or 2019.

    Yeah i agree. Toy Fair i'm guessing we will see wave 3 and 4 and Predaking. Waves 5/6 probably won't be shown until SDCC especially since there is no HASCON this year.

    Are there any toy fairs/industry events between February and July?

    Sdcc in July
    Nycc in October

    That's it this year with no hascon

    Frenzy's the real red flag for me. Judging from John Warden's reaction everytime Hasbro ask, I honestly don't think they have any interest in doing Frenzy or Eject. At least not in PotP.

    I doubt Rippersnapper would be in 3 different waves.

    I doubt we'll see anything beyond the leaks until NYCC for Generations. NYTF will have Predaking and likely the rest of 3 and 4. Then SDCC will likely be focusing on the Bumblebee movie product, the studio line and promoting Predaking, since that will likely get an early release there.

    Makes you really question the logic of not having HASCON every year and not having it happen at the same time as BOTCON. That would give you major industry events every quarter (February, April, July, October) and allow for nice incremental reveals and increased marketing for the toys and the media.

    Plus any events in Asian countries that may have reveals.

    Alas, I can't find the source. But when Freny and Eject were mentioned he seemed to get evasive, in a very diplomatic and professional way. It wasn't the positive kind of 'watch this space' response, more the "we're always listening to fans and we have lot's of plans for Generations after Prime Wars" managing expectations response. All just my impression, of course, and nothing close to a fact.

    4chan is the wretched hive of scum and villainy that Obi Wan warned about.

    That being said, i would love to see Seacons.

    You thinking about it I'm not sure if I want this to be true don't get me wrong I love if it was but. Personally I'm hoping for Monstructor ever since it was pointed out that the cutthroat revealed at the time had a very similar head to wildly.

    I wonder if those weird names are monstructors limbs probably not.

    We might end up with both where one is a regular retail release and the other is a exclusive somewhere.
