    No word of location yet I suppose. Anyway, sounds like an interesting set already.

    Ugh, and to think of all the pretty RtS/Generations molds they (probably) have access to this year.

    Talk about hype. Those snippets tell us virtually nothing, I'll only start getting interested when we have something a little more concrete.

    I want to guess Halo as the "MUST HAVE" figure... (Hound's giant hologram Autobot from Heavy Metal War that is an actual character in FP's Wings of Honor Universe)... but... he'd probably have to be the Cyb. Metroplex mold, and that's a leader so going for a larger mold while the 2011 set went down in the overall total size of boxset figures... and he'd be largely the same colors as Metroplex. Hmmm...

    Or they might mean they're using "relatively" old molds? Vehicons?

    And sounds like 3 are somehow tied together. If it was also 3 from the "distant" past(i.e. older molds) it'd sound like a repaint of JRX/Railracer.

    This set is going to make the all the 2007 set bitching seem like a nice day in the park.

    The complaining will be epic.
