    SG Galvatron/Thundercracker 1800 pcs
    Sideswipe/Toxitron 1500 pcs
    Troopers 1500 pcs.

    Having not seen pictures yet and based on rumors, I'd venture to bet it's the Classics Seeker mold.

    Oh, I was joking... mostly. I know all the "rumors".. but could you imagine the outrage if it turned out to be the Cybertron Thundercracker mold? :lol

    They already used that mold for the April Fools joke.

    So no worries.

    I'm wondering if Toxitron will be Wreck-gar or Optimus Prime. OH GOD IT'S THE MOTORMASTER DEBACLE ALL OVER AGAIN!

    Toxitron's Optimus Prime. We've seen comic pics.

    I enjoy what they say about "tweeting out pics left and right today. Behind the scenes. Exclusive first looks."

    I can't wait for Saturday though when Hasbro presents.

    Haven't decided what I'm doing with mine (or how many I'll get, given the option), but if you want to find me, it shouldn't be too hard. I'm doing a fair bit of volunteering this year.

    We only in the sense of "fans who have been able to get the comic last night," which is admittedly a small subset even of those who are at BotCon.

    But I can confirm that he's correct.

    I'm pretty sure that they said 3-pack in the BotCon comic, although I confess that I don't have it on hand to double-check.

    Based on the fact that the last 2 years had 3-packs and also that the production # is 1500 sets, I'd say its pretty safe to say that it will be a 3-pack.

    I'm surprised there's not many responses to this thread. Does this mean these figures will be harder/easier to get?

    I wouldn't imply availability one way or the other based on the length of a thread. More likely the lack of buzz has to do with there being no photos yet.
