    With a list like that, all your aiming for is disappointment.

    Toy Fair isn't as big a deal as it used to be, and Hasbro are keeping more schtum than they used to.


    We'll see what Robotkingdom revealed today, and maybe a little more.

    That's probably about all.

    I think you'll be disappointed if you're expecting the FOC toyline to be that big.

    Agreed. I reckon it will be larger than WFC (which had five figures) but not by much. And damned if the spotlight won't go to the usual suspects: Prime, Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream/a seeker, Bumblebee...and maybe an off-the-wall character like Shockwave or a dinobot.

    I think we'll see a lot of the Prime toys revealed in the RK pre-orders, like Hot Shot and Mirage.

    What's wrong with MP Grimlock? He's perfectly scaled to the Autobot Car Deluxe's (Prowl, Mirage, Sideswipe, etc.)

    If we get even a GLIMPSE of PRIME Hot Shot, I will be satisfied.

    Unless he looks like Hot Rod.

    A little FOC would be cool as well, but seems unlikely.

    What secondary market? Grimmy is still readily available on these shores.

    ^^This. I started reading that list and thought...is this guy thinking it's the 80's all over again- I wish? I realize most of what's on that list represents 'hoped for' items, but I think 85% of those toys are not on the docket. Just my gut.

    I'd hedge more towards (in the 'we haven't seen finished color models of these' category):

    Prime Voyager:
    Skyquake
    Starscream
    Megatron
    New Mold OP

    Prime Deluxe:
    Knockout
    Ratchet
    Arachnid
    Breakdown
    Hot Shot
    Mirage

    The rest...I'll be happy with whatever I see, but the above are my wish list.
