    In the vein of Products you're hoping to see revealed at TFCon Toronto 2018 , curious what everyone's waiting for most as far as reveals later this month at TFCon US.

    For the context of this thread, "reveals" can mean anything from new product announcements via social media, slides at the 3P Panel showing early renders, early physical prototypes displayed at a vendor/retailer booth, up through full-color production samples, and new exclusive products for sale at the show.

    I'd like to get this started with X-Transbot's Monolith. I'd like to see the combined form in full color physical prototype stage alongside all five individual figures in their robot and/or alt modes as well.

    As far as exclusives, I'd expect an MMC/Ocular Max exclusive and at least one MakeToys exclusive repaint.

    What are you expecting or hoping to see?

    Maketoys update on their Cybertron seekers, and please an Update on Highbrow - They showed one grey prototype of it a year ago and not a single update since.

    I'll second the call for Monolith. If I'm being honest, I'll settle for just their Motormaster.

    Progress on Maketoys' Highbrow and Brainstorm.

    A prototype of the mold MMC will use for for their OX Remix Rewind and Eject.

    Another Iron Factory combiner.

    Fans Hobby's Overlord and Godbomber.

    A surprise reveal, maybe Fans Hobby or Maketoys, of an MP Fire Convoy.

    Some signs of life from Generation Toy.

    Hints of what combiner Zeta might be tackling after Superion (and hoping it's not the Menasor that was teased before the split... Defensor, Predaking, Abominus, or Computron, in that order please).

    Something else from Open and Play. While I think I'd prefer something of higher quality, generally speaking (I did pick up Big Spring, as I like him better than Apache, but I expect I'll replace him with XTB's or MMC's Springer), in theory at least I like the idea of a company shaking up the market and offering less expensive figures.

    A surprise reveal that somebody, anybody, is putting out an alternative to Tesla for an MP Perceptor.

    IDW Seekers of some sort--I think Gcreations or GT teased a silhouette of these, I'm surprised they haven't been done yet but are on my short list.

    PE Repaint of Mega Doragon into Cryotek

    Red SG Deadpool-esque repaint of MMC's Stray/Ater Beta

    Cybertron stuff by someone aside from maketoys

    MMC's DJD guys

    MAAS toys Tetrajets update

    Confirmation of Fans Toys Hydra release date (cause I have him on preorder).
    EDIT: MMC's Assaultus, I want to see them out-do their amazing Feral Rex.

    FansProject Function X Not-Hardhead.... finally maybe, please?

    Generation Toy's Red Bull

    And from Anybody, RUNG.

    I'm keen for full combined mode reveals of ANY of the outstanding MP combiners - XTB, DX9, FansToys, MMC.
    I don't expect it but I'd love to see it. Maybe XTB's will be ready. Lord knows there's been enough questions about how it works!!
    ...what? Do you mean Tetra jets or just repainted Meteor in the Rainmaker spectrum of colours?
    Because the MT Sunstorm crowdfunder pretty much killed the chances of a mainstream release any of the Rainmakers in that mould. Any other releases will likely be Crowdfunded as well.
    I am totally up for a MP Tetra Jet!! MAAS was close but couldnt quite pull it off.

    Gcreation Stealth Bomber Megatron
    FansHobby G2 Megatron?
    KFC Junkions
    Colour Proto's of MT Coneheads
    Something in colour from FansToys that we haven;t seen before (there's so much in their queue I couldn't guess what is next.

    I'd like to see revealed at TFCON:

    Mech Planet Bumblebee with a G1 toy accurate head and a Glyph repaint, a G2 repaint of their Hubcap, Tap-Out repaint of their Cliffjumper, as well as the rest of the Throttlebots to go with their Goldbug and Hasbro's Chase

    Mechanic Studios version of Gears

    TFC Deathcobra to go with their Liokaiser set

    Fansproject Venom to go with their Deluxe Insecticons

    Maybe MMC can tackle Rotorstorm, Stalker or Blue Bacchus?

    Would love to see anyone announce a Beast Machines Botanica!

    Some bots that won't take 2 years to release.

    Some bots that will actually continue or even finish an existing line / combiner team.

    Follow ups on existing teased / announced releases from XTB, FT, MT and KFC.

    Next Zeta combiner.

    I'm putting words in OP's mouth, but I assumed OP meant the black and blue repaints of Galaxy Meteor, their Cybertron/Galaxy Force Starscream.
