    Crazy or serious, make some predictions then look back to see how close you were.


    People will complain about the mold, character choice or color scheme for some of the unrevealed exclusive toys. Either because they are bad choices or Hasbro should have released them at retail.

    Someone will complain that the exclusives are dumb overpriced repaints.

    People will be jealous that the custom class figure isn't available to everyone.

    There won't be any of the proposed forty Generations 2013 toys revealed.

    The Combaticons, Jazz, Shockwave, Starscream and Optimus Prime toys from WFC will be hyped a lot as if they were completely new reveals. Only the brightly colored Combaticons will be released. More of the game will be shown.

    Focus will be on Prime and new Prime toys, mainly Cyberverse.

    Hasbro will show attendee exclusive artwork that non-attendees won't ever get to see.

    Many dumb questions will be asked to Hasbro and Hasbro won't be forthcoming with informative answers.

    here's my ideas:

    1) we'll get good shots of the FoC combaticons

    2) we'll see new prime deluxes

    3) The add-on sets will be nothing close to what was rumored over on seibertron.com a while back

    4) there will be heaps and heaps of exclusives left after the convention, prompting the club to have a discount "sping cleaning sale."

    I dont see their being any sets left over stores like BBTS will just get them and sit on them for a year and slowly let them trickle out to meet demand.

    But on topic

    FOC Combaticons in pics that make them look awesome
    FOC Combaticons in pics that make small children cry
    *well one has to be right*

    Prime deluxe pics of mostly BB repaints

    Generations will look like a mess of left over movie toys, repaints and the odd new item.

    Arms Microns will not be released out side of Japan for what ever reason

    show mostly filled with stuff we know about.

    Some one brings up 3rd party toys in Q&A and gets nothing but an awkward silence

    A few more FOC toys will be revealed. Grimlock is one of them.

    More Prime reveals. Many will be what has been seen from Takara/Tomy.

    Artwork for upcoming Generations figures.

    The "new" stuff we'll see are Knockout, Vehicon, Hot Shot, Airachnid, Night Slash Bumblebee, Dead End, Kup, and Rumble. Also they will show us Generations Prime, Jazz, Shockwave, and the huge unveil will be the Combaticons! They'll top it off with a picture of Generations Starscream for 2013.

    All this excitement doesn't even count the plethora of Cyberverse toys...

    I think the biggest surprise will be the club exclusives for next year.


    EDIT: oh yes, there's a chance we MIGHT see Breakdown and Dreadwing in color...

    This is all I'm expecting. If I keep my hopes low I won't be as disappointed.

    I expect you are 100% correct..



    I predict we'll see the SDCC exclusives and about half this year's line with the rest (and best) saved to be revealed at SDCC

    I predict someone will waste time asking Hasbro about the 3rd party ban at their panel
