    This isn't teasing Autobot Spike, it's teasing whatever those weird teams like "Toilet Troop" that Amazon listings turned up for are.

    Is this teasing a SDCC reveal?'

    Does Transformers have a panel at SDCC this year?

    if in fact it is an Autobot Spike figure, I may buy it. I don't know why I want an Autobot Spike figure though. He was only in one episode and I know he won't transform. Considering they could make one with slightly better than Action Master Articulation and that it won't transform, it would be relatively cheap (in comparison to lets say POTP Jazz) to create because it would have a pretty low parts count (for a transformer). They could make a deluxe sized figure with maybe 20 parts max.

    It's going to be some sort of Battle Smashers again, with multiple robots you can take apart and combine parts from different robots.

    Haha! I love it! Official reaction to leaked information, using G1 clips to acknowledge it as a “secret project”, then…

    HASBRO SMASH!!!

    Why toilet troop tho? Just... why...? Sewage truck and a plumber van? Is Toxitron the leader?

    I mean, what parent is going to want to buy the Toilet Troop for their kids? xD

    Real curious to see whether it's just a placeholder codename or not

    It would be funny to get an offical hasbro figure that turns into a shitter, when I do believe there still hasn't being any kind of bus transformer released!

    Squids, Griffons, ATVs... toilets... but nary a bus. :p

    Funny and original joke.

    Really, though, did you need to post that? Nobody's asking for your opinion on the screen-accuracy direction TT's taken with MP products.

    They probably wouldn't be in a bunch of retailer listings if they were an exclusive

    I wonder if Hasbro's usage of Autobot Spike is supposed to be foreshadowing...

    ...Probably not.
