    Be careful what you wish for. Transformers are Hasbro / Takara Tomy's way of telling you that you make too much money.

    I don't get why people think well have foc toys at toy fair. The game is out next Christmas. We will only see a wave of ehatever is shipping this spring. I would bet we see concept pics at botcon and hand painted figures at sdcc

    I dunno. With Prime still not on in every market (including mine) and a new movie at least two years away, I think Hasbro is going to throw some weight behind FOC. WFC did quite well and the FOC trailer was well-received by fans and press alike. I don't think it's crazy to see figures well before the game. I wouldn't bet the farm on it or anything, but it's a thing that could happen.

    It all depends where Hasbro sees the FOC toys in its grand scheme of things. If they see these toys as something they want on the shelves for the Holiday Season or if Hasbro wants to do what they did in 2011 and have 4 lines going at once, then we will see some figs at TF. If they want to wait until after the game is out to launch the figures (which would mean a 2013 release), then we won't see anything until Botcon at the earliest.

    I thought the release date had been moved up to Fall, so there's plenty of reason to think we'll see some.

    With a fall release date I think it's very likely well see something at toyfair. It would make sense with how much attention FOC has been getting they'd wanna put the word out with some toys.

    Maybe, but unpainted prototypes are usually revealed at SDCC/botcon.

    Because Toy fair is a trade show for the toy industry. We may not see much of anything but if one exists we'll hear of it.

    Well there's images like this out there
    [​IMG]

    BUT
    Game stops preorder date is 12/31
    Transformers: Fall of Cybertron for Xbox 360 | GameStop
    and so is Amazons
    http://www.amazon.com/Transformers-...TTQ8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1326757526&sr=8-2

    BUT they have the xbox 360 version has a date of 8/31/12
    http://www.amazon.com/Transformers-...TTS6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326757526&sr=8-1

    So who knows


    Hasbro is already hyping FOC so i'm sure well HEAR something. I just don't think well SEE anything. Going off of 2011 we only saw the initial release waves of DOTM. We did see prime toys but we know those were old Universe molds that were done way early so that is out of the ordinary
