    basically my logic for this is that the movie comes out almost a month after the toyline so maybe they won't contain any spoilers for the movie also, maybe only FAB's, Legends, Scouts and Retools/Repaints/Previews (Bumblebee, Wreckage and Protoform Soundwave) will be in the early toyline as the movie would be important to sell most of the new figures and the more expensive ones.

    Tell me what you think

    Sounds about right really, though I'm curious to something. Would Wreckage actually appear in the movie? Outside of a perhaps a bad cameo, or are the writers just gonna blow off IDW?

    I have no idea, the ROTF Prequel is official cannon but we don't know how it ends, Wreckage fights Starscream in Alliance and could die later on

    My gut feeling is that the toys will end up containing spoilers since Hasbro would be expecting a shelf life for the toys way past the movie's release date. Just a gut feeling though so I could be wrong.

    Hasbro could give two $#!ts about spoiling the movie. The on shelf date of a month before is so that the toys will have reached saturation by the time the movie strikes and impassioned children, with parents in tow, will storm stores looking for the toys after seeing the movie.

    I just hope they pace the line better. getting every movie character in may of 2007, and then only having to go out to look for leader class figures and concept camaro bumblebee later on kinda sucked. a lot. 2007 (and most of 2008) was a boooooring year for transformers if you didnt want all the non-movie character movie toys or repaints.

    While the comics are canon, my understanding is that the movie sequel/prequel comics are made in the way that while they add to the overall movieverse, they don't build upon the film in a way that the average movie viewer wouldn't need to have read them to know the finer details of the film. (I hope that makes sense)

    This is why I don't think Wreckage will be in ROTF, because its alot to assume that Sector 7 had him all along and he wasnt brought up in the first movie.

    It will probably be like how the first movie was. Most of the bios had nothing to do with the plot of the movie.

    Either that or we will probably already know the plot by then anyway.

    Or Bay will have one of his "secret agents" cross out all the spoiler information with a sharpie.:lol

    He'd be a cheap 'un to add, they have all his art done and I assume some CGI too

    We're gonna be seeing Devastator on Leno and Prime combining with Jetfire during the MTV awards. I mean, if 2007 is proof I really don't think they care about spoilers :p
