    Oh great, they're bringing back one of the worst names Transformers has ever used. "Reveal the Shield" never made sense when they first used it. Why use it now...? I know I'm just nitpicking about the name, but the name was and still is completely terrible.

    It was called "Reveal the Shield" because the toys did not have traditional insignias, but instead had rubsigns like old G1 toys.

    Furthermore, this is not "Reveal the Shield". It's "Reveal YOUR Shield", as in, picking an alliance for this fun little marketing campaign.

    Still a stupid name. Pretty much no one refers to the insignias as "shields", after all. And to be fair, I missed the "your" part of this campaign (which I don't think is "fun", but okay, to each their own) but then again, the name "Reveal THE Shield" is plastered around everywhere else in this thread, so, you know...

    Well, according to marketing, they're shields. I think it's weird, but that's how it is. Far from the first time I've heard insignias referred to as shields anyway.

    And yeah, I noticed that, and I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be "Reveal your shield"

    Hell, I'd be happy if they said there will be 6 MPM figures for this year. They don't even need to announce the names, just that we're getting 3 autobots and 3 decepticons this year.

    Prime, bumblebee, ironhide or sideswipe, barricade, megatron ('07 or rotf), and starscream or blackout.. I'd prefer starscream first then blackout. But boy am I ahead of myself.

    Barricade, being the (bad) cop that he is, would fit in most appropriately with the "shield" part of this marketing campaign.

    I ponder if they gunna reveal a third wave of this part of the TLK Line or not. Considering that they need to step up their revealing game abit.

    Are we really complaining about faction symbols being called "sheilds" now?

    Just for clarification, I was correct about this not being a reuse of the "Reveal the shield" title.

    And it begins...

    I just hope that there will be 2 more waves of deluxe and 1 more wave of voyager. Maybe 1 more leader figure.

    That's probably going to be reserved for hascon in September. As well as anything else related to the remainder of Titans Return or power of the primes

    IDK man, there will be product on shelves that won't have had a chance to be reveal by september. The boxsets are no exception. They released 7 boxsets throughout the entirety of last year. We know two more are coming for sure. Speed is out now, Strength will most likely hit during the summer, then one of the remaining ones, as well as TR wave 6 will be in the fall.

    I know, but my point is that reveals will be moot as unrevealed product will be on shelves by then, making the whole thing redundant. Expect reveals elsewhere.

    I was told that Hascon will probably not reveal TLK toys.

    I was thinking. You think it would count as a reveal if they reveal the Robot voices? I just know they already have Peter Cullen, Mark Ryan, John Goodman, Ken Watanabe, John DiMaggio, Frank Welker and maybe Reno Wilson. Just new voices for Hot Rod, Cogman, Sqweek, Barricade and some sound effect for the other Decepticons.

    It's never been officially said tlk wolnt have reveals of some kind ( most likely exclusive product ) at hascon only speculation based on the fact of alotted quarter sense the movie has only 1 for product releases.

    I seriously don't know what movie related things that might get revealed aside from toys during the event. But I'd bet my left foot it will be something. Trailer, tv spot, or voice actor reveal who knows.

    I can't think of anything else besides a new trailer and toys. But from the rumors I heard, Cogman and Hot Rod are voiced by famous people I never heard of or they were in movies my mom watches. I literally can't think of anything else.

    I usually savor my weekend, but I sound crazy asking for the weekend to pass by, so we can get the reveal your shield soon.
