    No, no just a general advice on keeping low expectations so that whatever you'll see will be awesome.

    I'm in no way that buddy buddy with anyone at Hasbro or Paramount to know major info. I'm like you guys. Nothing special.

    But minor tidbits wouldn't hurt, right? ;)

    I really don't expect to much from this event to me any reveal is better than nothing I only really only want hot rod. I have a feeling the MTC subline might have something what who knows but. As for hooligan I bought a second berserker and the plan is to repaint the black silver with splashes of rust coloring so hooligan is not a big deal.

    That's my plan too. Hoping to carve the head and then paint it blue and learn how to paint rust.

    There's also the matter of Mohawk. I'm wondering if I can transform Brimstone if I glue a Mohawk piece on him.

    I don't know about the carving the head but I may shape it so it points more back than straight up.

    Just more like cutting off the hair or whatever those are and carving down the top to make it more like Crowbar's noggin. It's just a V shaped forehead.

    Revenge of The Fallen scout class Reverb would make a better Mohawk. They both have wheels on their shoulders.

    The person said they'd reveal the robot mode, but never did. In fact, I think we never heard from them again.

    I don't think Reverb is Mohawk. I looked at him and they don't look alike.

    Just learned something intersting. According to Tfwiki, when ROTF Fearswoop(a homage to G2 Hooligan) was released, it was intended to keep the same name ss the G2 Cyberjet, but Hasbro couldn't secure the trademark.

    Now that was nearly 10 years ago, but it's possible they never we're able to secure it at any point up till now. This wouldn't effect a character in the movie using the name, but it means Hasbro could never use it. They would have to settle for something else. Add that onto not getting the VW license. They would either have to release him as "Not Hooligan" and change his alt mode to avoid any legal issues(like Barricade), or jusy skip it all together.

    I still stand by my belief that Berseker is not only another stab at Crowbar but also meant as a stand in for Hooligan.

    It doesn't work that way. It still includes Hooligan. The Autobot and Decepticons prefixes are added to trademarks that are otherwise harder to get on their own. Adding a nonexistant word makes i easier to defend it. Thats why most characters that have it have more simpler and common names like Jazz, Swindle, and Brawl.

    I haven't read this in a while, but is undoubtedly one of the most interesting articles I've ever read and will tell you what you need to know.

    Hasbro: MPM label of (insert character here)

    Weibo: MPM Box art or instructions

    Taobao: actual test shot

    eBay: boxed sample(2 minutes before paramount pulls it)

    Facebook: in hand images that may or may not be followed by an alleged "review" where someone just shows the figure on camera and repeats the same sentence 2 billion times while not actually reviewing the figure
