    Updating with a brief message, Hasbro began the “Hunt For The Decepticons” campaign. Just like the “N.E.S.T Global Alliance” campaign, this campaign too has a plotline to follow.

    SPOILER: Official description of the “Hunt For The Decepticons” plot...

    The AUTOBOTS have formed a secret alliance with humans to protect Earth from the DECEPTICON threat. Some troubling signs indicate that the DECEPTICONS are preparing to strike:

    Several meteors have breached the atmosphere and seem to be aiming for different parts of the globe. The AUTOBOTS have also picked up increased communication signals from SOUNDWAVE but are unable to break the CYBERTRON-encrypted code.

    Strange reports have appeared in various media. Among others a TV news report showed an unusual white muscle car in the northern jungle parts of Thailand heading toward China.

    Sensing trouble, OPTIMUS PRIME keeps the AUTOBOTS on the highest alert.
    Check back in early June to see how you can help the AUTOBOTS!

    With it, the month of June is marked as the beginning of the Hunt For The Decepticons campaign by Hasbro.

    I'm pretty sure they're refering to Drift.

    Drift is Generations line. Unless they make a movie version.

    I was hoping for a bigger Brakedown myself..

    EDIT--Who is this Axer everyone is talking about?

    This is what triggered my curiosity. A TV News Report? Could this mean, people has started to wonder. Hmmm... I have an odd feeling that Hasbro is setting-up the plot to Transformers 3.

    So does the "check back in June part" part mean that the HFD toys may be in stores next month, or am I just being an inpatient collector? x_x

    Another campaign? Sweet! Please let it be a mailaway one. And the white muscle car could be Axor, but if its a white Lockdown, forget it.

    If it's a mail away thing for a Lockdown repaint I wouldn't mind considering I've yet to see him along with ANYTHING of the NEST line minus the two pack and the one and only Skystalker I saw and bought the other day.

    Another obscure G1 character form the Action Masters series: Axer - Transformers Wiki

    Most likely gonna be a repaint/retool of Lockdown, which will be very interesting to see. Will keep an eye out for this!

    lets hope this is a mail away and it's europe only :D  (you have nest so we should have hftd)

    im thinking a repaint of bumblebee or skorponok (it has to be a rubbish mould)

    anyway the description sounds exactly the same as nest

    Half of me is excited that the annual spring plastic drought is about over, but half of me is also cringing at the inevitable thinning of the my wallet :(
