    I'm waiting for Botcon announcements before I jump to any sort of conclusions.

    Where did you get this impression?
    Shockwave, Prime, Jazz, and Starscream, and Bruticus... those are the only FOC figures we've been confirmed to be getting, right? The only one of those that aren't in the FOC-exclusive toyline is Starscream, and even then we don't know that for sure, so where are you coming from?

    They make up eight, out of a confirmed total of forty figures. Granted, that's twenty per cent, but there's still a lot more room for other figures too.

    Yeah he is. No gift pack ATM, just separate waves. Swindle, BlastOff, Brawl, Onslaught and Vortex.

    And FOC is Generations, not its own separate line.

    They're not even part of the 40, so far only one FOC figure is confirmed for Generations 2013.

    Generations opened up in 2010 with a number of WFC figures, as well. Later waves brought a lot more Classics figures into the mix.

    I wouldn't put too much into it. The line is coming back with FOC figures to coincide with the game's release. That's all. Hit while the hype is hot.

    To be honest with you, I hope 30 of those 40 are Fall of Cybertron.

    Starscream in 2013 is confirmed. That's 6 months-ish after release. And you KNOW they'll repaint that mold.

    Sure hope not. The amount of box-on-wheels-altmode toys we get out of the forty 2013 generations should not be able to be counted on more than one hand.

    So far 9 FOC molds probally two repaints of SW and TC. A bunch of repaints with new heads. I'm not expecting anything as too not get excited. I just want Trailbreaker, Hoist, and Skids.

    I would be extremely happy with 40 FoC figures for the 2013 Generations line. But I'm not expecting that.

    Actually they are. What Hasbro said 40 Generations figure by the end of 2013. Not 40 in 2013. And the 8 2012 Generations figures are the 8 FOC figures so far shown. Everybody gets that wrong.

    that group is going to be a bitch to collect....especially if they underpack any member of this group in the case assortments.

    They are 2012 releases. Starscream is the only one in 2013 announced, so only he counts towards the 40 planned for 2013.

    However, I do hope many of the characters get made as toys in Generations. Hell, just call it "Fall of Cybertron" and I'll be happy.

    Wfc figures sold as part of the generations line I would think these would too. When was it said they wouldn't be in the generations line? Foc starscream is to be sold under generations for wave one in 2013 so I would think any 2012 foc figure will be sold under generations and count toward that 40.
