    I believe someone translated the original source of this on the boards several weeks ago. The new trailer/ truck is actually just part of a 30th anniversary promotion in Japan in which they made a real life truck look like that and it will be driving around in Japan to promote the TF anniversary.

    As far as the classics/ generations in the fall, we know about Hasbro MP Prowl and Sunstorm, Generations Acree and Chromia, Generations Roadbuster and Skybyte. Crosscut is in there somewhere as well. There may be more I am forgetting about and more that have not yet been announced/ leaked.

    Generations Brainstorm is due (Hasbro Press Release).

    But we have some rumored stuff for the fall like an Optimus Evolution 2 pack and some Masterpieces, supposedly.

    Botcon in about a month will probably reveal all the exclusives we have to look forward to this fall.

    As I understand, there was a Leader Generations Megatron due sometime this year.

    Huh, that's neat. Always meant to get the Hybrid Prime, since I've kind of resigned myself to never getting an MP Optimus.

    Not to derail, but I maintain there is NO WAY that THS-02 is the included figure, for a whole multitude of reasons. I still maintain it will be that Classics Ultimate Battle figure.

    Hybrid Style does have a rather distinctive overhang for the cab there. I can't recall any other G1 Prime that looks quite like it.

    Bingo.

    For a cost perspective, Ultimate Battle Prime would make the set fit the same pricepoint that Grimlock is getting with his Energon figure and AoE Voyager (which also appears to sport a unique deco).

    THS-02 (with its diecast and numerous pieces like FINGERS) really doesn't fit any pricing structure Hasbro uses, not to mention its diminutive size probably wouldn't make it too attractive to parents/casual consumers compared to even Grimlock's set.

    Yeah, we'll be getting MP Grimlock, Prowl, and Sunstorm (despite them using a custom as a placeholder).

    That was the point. Hybrid is most probably a placeholder too and we're going to get a different G1-styled OP
