    I say it's TRANSFORMERS VS. GO-BOTS!


    Naturally, we'll have to wait nearly a year to find out, but that's my theory...

    That was quick. They haven't even "finished" the 2010 site! (they said Rapido's english profile would be up there, but it's not yet. Has anyone taken a stab at translating it themself?)


    As for what "the Invasion" could be, I have no idea. If it's something alien related, then maybe a Quintesson theme?

    Hmm... invasion of the Go-Bots IS the first thing that pops in my head. But I still don't see them doing a GoBot theme at a Transformers convention.

    I like the masters idea!

    We've already got Hardhead and Weirdwolf. Alas, it's killed unless Hasbro gives us a G1 colored Scorponok...

    Oh I WISH.... :D

    Daleks = LOL!

    I have to agree with the nebulans idea. Doesn't sound too bad. Unless this is some wierd way of doing Diaclone with the transformers first invasion or something.

    I hope you're wrong! :) 

    I know many fans have said a GoBot themed set would be fun. I don't know what the fandom at large thinks of it though.

    I don't think it's out of the realm of possibilities though - we already have Bug Bite and Crasher, plus dedicated prose to our long-lost GoBot travelers, now stuck in the Classics universe. We know they were reformatted into new bodies, but not which ones. They've set up a great way to lead into a GoBot set/theme if they want.

    Cy-kill was in Megatron Origins I think as well.

    I would enjoy this as the set too. Gobots would be a fun theme, just to see what FP could do to make Classics molds into Gobots.

    I'm focusing on that word invasion. That's key.

    What in TF lore could be considered an "invader" or invading force? I'll admit I'm drawing a blank.

    I guess a Quint Sharkticon squad could be an invading army/force.

    The Invasion Begins...

    It sounds organized, big. Not just a 4 person thing...an invasion. Hm. Interesting. I guess Go Bots could be feasible...Go Bots invading the TF universe.

    Weird.

    i figured the whole 'invasion' thing was just saying 'hey movie premiere, the whole crew's coming we're taking over Pasadena!' like in '09 and '07.

    yeah that was mentioned in the news post. i'm assuming it's a placeholder and we won't be able to reserve rooms for awhile.

    It a little too early to start guessing, I'm sure we'll get something clearer like this years "Lost Generation" hint later
