    So with the US being the red headed stepchild currently, I'm putting my money on Australia getting the Fall of Cybertron line in 3 weeks.



    Please note this thread contains 0% serious beliefs. May include nuts though.

    HELL NO! Australia barely gets any thing first! We missed out on ratchet generations America owes us! We should get it first to make up for the over pricing that shops do because of Hasbro plus the missing products we miss out on. America suck my hairy nut sack because Australia should get it FIRST!

    Here is how it will happen:

    -A few figures will be revealed via a grainy magazine. Fans will be divided into several camps...some will love them, some will mock them, some will complain about us not getting a certain character, several will claim the figures 'must be mistransformed) and one person will bring up them doing a 'My Little Pony' crossover instead.

    -Within a months time we will get clearer images of the figures and an idea of a street date

    -One week later, someone will manage to get their hands on a figure and post a review.

    -Demand will skyrocket as fans search for the figures, believing them already out. What few figures that appear on ebay will go for around a hundred and twenty dollars

    -Two weeks before the supposed release, the toys will be leaked somewhere in the world. If it is in the USA, it will be in one area...probably along the coast. All other countries will claim Hasbro hates them.

    -The release date will arrive with half the stores not having them and the other half having too many.

    -Within 2 months the figures will be everywhere yet people will complain that they aren't 'there in their area'

    -Shortly around this time, they will appear on Hasbrotoyshop and other websites. Toys sell out within a day.

    -2 weeks later, everyone begins to complain that the figures aren't moving and they haven't gotten the newest wave because of it...Hasbro doesn't release stuff soon enough! is the cry

    -Meanwhile, a new line/show/movie arrives and the fanbase begins to drool over those figures, complaining that the current line is forcing back the release date of the toys people NOW want.

    -Hasbro execs have sex on top of a pile of your money. It will not be pleasant.


    There...just copy this onto every thread that pops up every time a new line is announced and we can focus on important things like complaining about minor characters not getting bigger figures that only 5 people would buy

    Man, I would love for that to happen. But, I wouldn't be surprised if we get FOC last.

    Just curious, did Hasbro announce a "full product line" for the first game? Would be interesting, since the first line just gave us 5 figures. I really hope we'll get FoC Grimlock and Bruticus though, they'd be really really nice updates to figures we've gotten.

    As for what will be in FOC...

    85% chance-We will get all four/five original WFC figures with slight paint app changes

    70% chance-We will get atleast two previously released figures repainted under FOC line (my money is on Warpath and the Sky Shadow molds)

    90% chance- We will get 4 new figures, two decepticons and two autobots (my money is on Jazz and Grimlock for Autobots, Starscream and Shockwave for cons)

    20% chance- We will get all the Dinobots

    10% chance- We will get the combaticons

    100% chance- Fans will complain.
