    I seriously have a feeling that they'll revisit Shattered Glass. It's just a feeling though, nothing more.

    I don't recall the prices from last year, but here is a link to the brochure from 2008 to give you an idea of the package prices (see page 2):

    FunPub has said that those molds are off the table for now, though that would be one of the most epic surprises ever. They'll probably use TT Cheetor this year to gauge interest.

    You and me both. I still hold my theory it will be.

    Considering how the GoBots are hiding out in the Transformers multiverse, the theme could be the GoBots attacking the Transformers multiverse in full force.

    That would explain why they chose Sideburn fiction-wise. Though, I think they were planning to stay in the same continuity for a while, which would mean that R.I.D. story would be in continuity with the Wings of Honor version of the G1 continuity. So, it would be G1 like Car Robots rather than separate like R.I.D. I'd like to see the folks over at the wiki figure that out. :) 

    Leader-1 from the Classics Seeker mold, perhaps? Cy-Kill from the new Wreck-Gar (though it's probably too new)?

    Me, too. My feeling is mainly based upon the additional page in the Diamond edition of the 2010 BotCon comic.

    I hope it's all Animated-based with remolds aplenty.

    I'm guessing something along the lines of "Shattered Glass Universe Versus Classic Universe"
    Here's hoping we get a nice Classic Goldbug

    I'd love to see animated or Gobots. I'd still want to see that never produced beast wars megatron from the rid body though. It's screaming to be made.

    i cant see it being RID. We got Skybyte last year and have Sideburn as club exclusive. Why do a RID set when those 2 could have been easily included. I would be really surprised if they still go the RID route.

    I really have no idea what it could be.

    This'll be the first magazine I'll get, as this is my first time with membership. Feels kinda cool to be getting in on this by more than just reading forum posts.

    I certainly hope it's a better run than 2009. While not the worst, I wouldn't have minded the theme being different.
