    Absolutely, but that's not saying much, is it?

    Hasbro will be at sdcc for the idk how many times I've said it. They do not need a pannel to do anything They can still pull a hey we cleaned out the movie pipeline and found this so saying nothing at sdcc is really unfounded.

    Sorry, I've just taken the whole End of TLK line literally.

    I'd be smiling if we found out we are getting a wave 4. But the more I look forward to it, I'm just setting myself to disappointment.

    Hope if fine but wave 4 isn't a garentee so for now hang your hopes on exclusive boxes sets. And a potential 13th deluxe don't hope for to much just something.

    Again, Drift was Nova, Hound was Super Nova.
    Grimlock was Moon, Optimus Prime was Four Moons.
    Berserker was Gamma Ray (or "Green Gamma Ray"), Nitro was Gamma Beam Gray.

    There is no logical connection between the code names and the characters.

    Stinger makes absolutely no sense for this movie line.

    Optimus, Bumblebee and Grimlock all had two different code names:

    Optimus Prime redecos from previous lines were "Four Moons" while new toys were "Jupiter".
    Bumblebee redecos from previous lines were "Gas Giant" while new toys were "Saturn".
    Grimlock redecos from previous lines were "Lunar Eclipse" while his sole new toy (the Knight Armor Turbo Changer) was "Moon".

    See what I mean?

    Not really.

    But Saturn's Ring? No connections.

    Some characters have two different code names that are not related to each other.

    Other characters have similar code names despite being completely different characters.

    Thus, trying to draw a connection between a new code name and an existing one is completely ignoring the nonexistence of any system behind those code names.

    All I know is, As much as I want Saturn's Ring to be a sign of Wave 4 I doubt that's going to happen.

    Give us a yellow car Bee, and no one cares, but if you change the color of alt mode and you'll see people get excited, unless the color is black.

    Why are we putting WW2 Bumblebee under spoiler tags? The movie is already out and there have been trailers and tv spots for more than a month portraying Bumblebee in his WW2 mode.

    At this point I think it's got something to do with the bee movie line.

    Didn't the code name Saturn Rings end up being for Hot Rod?
    So this could be a general retail release of the Walmart exclusive?

    Or Hot Rod was at one point supposed to be a general retail release before Hasbro struck a deal with Walmart.

    Also a distinct possibility, yes.

    My main statement though was that the code name "Saturn Rings" is Hot Rod

    The rest of my post was just a possible explanation for why it was found in another stores computer system

    So whether the "Voyager Bumblebee" listings for Nitro at Amazon Spain and Toys"R"Us UK were due to an error or an older plan that got changed, the name came from Hasbro, since he's also listed under that name at the Spanish version of the Hasbro website:
