    war for cybertron appears to be a trilogy I suspect we will get all of the ark and nemesis crews at least probably with a few suprises

    Entered Fortress Maximus and MacCadam's on separate occasions (remembering them from a thread here — I wish I had gotten that deal on HTS.) Curious about what this January thing entails? What are the odds of either of those two getting toys? I mean, Fortress Maximus got a Titan but that is all the more case for one not being made. I suspect something lore related, possibly character bios.

    keep in mind prime wars was a trilogy too (even if it wasnt always intended as such) and we got most but not all of the initial ark crew in that one too

    It occurs to me that they're most of the way through the Nemesis Crew already. Just need Thundercracker, Skywarp, Buzzsaw, Frenzy, and Rumble.

    The Ark crew will be the real test. Assuming that getting to all of them within the confines of the trilogy is even an explicit goal.

    Just frenzy, rumble and buzzsaw left from the nemesis. Thundercracker and Skywarp are coming later wave 3 and an exclusive respectively.

    Just for fun I tried to put in the message on the POTP Jazz but it wasn't valid

    Of course not. It was never valid (take that absolutely any way you want to).

    I was just surprised that the symbols on the Jazz car are actually on the decoder

    I'm sure the letters "M" "A" and "G" and somewhat common in the Autobot language.

    My theory is that the codes aren't a hint at anything, but merely a reference to the character's themselves. Prime is the leader if Iacon, Megatron is the leader of Kaon, Cog is related to team Fortress Maximus, Sunstreaker and Sideswipe are brothers, Skytread is a Duocon, and Macaddam was loosely based on Hound in the Kreo Manga (that one might be a stretch, but I'm doubling down because of the rest of these).

    I saw someone else suggest that it's what they're fighting for.

    No, have only a small amount in some spot that he can't physically reach, like on his back. It'd probably drive him nuts.

    I was naive about the symbols - never really paid attention or looked any of it up. I think Jazz is the first time I have seen them on a toy (at least the ones I buy)* - correct me if I am wrong, which is why I was surprised Hasbro was being consistent with the language but have since looked more into it - So don't read too much into my post, thanks.

    *G1 fan so mainly just collect generations and the newer incarnations of the G1 line. Haven't been into any of the recent animation other than Beast Wars and Transformer Animated

    Not all of the Voyager packaging has the blacklight coating. We found several that didn't back in early November.

    God I hope we get a new Sunstreaker. Let me toss the old '08 mold.

    It will only translate the words found on the box's, so it wont work on stuff like Jazz's or Seasprays easter-egg messages.

    For the time being I’ll be using the combiner wars sunstreaker, simply because it sizes well with siege sideswipe

    It works, but it's a mold I'm already using for two characters (Breakdown and Lighspeed). And it definitely looks decent next to this Sideswipe.
