    From Amazon Mexico comes this collage of what appears to be the line-up for Series 2 of the Cyberverse Tiny Turbo Changers:
    71hKeHXBvuL._SL2000_.jpg

    Those are a lot of repeats from Series 1: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Grimlock, Soundwave, Shockwave, Blackarachnia, Prowl... the only obvious new ones are Acid Storm and what appears to be Jazz (?). Less obvious is the gray Jetfire redeco (Skydive?), and definitely not obvious is the minor Hot Rod redeco.

    Toywiz reveals even more details, with a stock photo that depicts Series 1 bags inside a Series 2 case, with some of the line-up barely visible on the side:

    Thanks to this, we know the Hot Rod redeco is actually meant to be Sideswipe.

    I'll bet that grey Jetfire is Silverbolt!

    If that's the case, that wouldn't be the first time that they redecoed Jetfire into Silverbolt.

    Wait. You might be on to something there. The question is... will they have new heads?

    Whoah, that was quick. If I see these at retail when they come out, I want Acid Storm and the Jetfire redeco. Might get Sideswipe and Jazz as well.

    Man, what a waste. Come out with a legit new series with at least 10 of the 12 new or just keep it as Series 1.

    But the box still shows Series 1, so is this really Series 2? Should we say, Series 1.2?

    Listen, Hasbro I\'m all in for a Tiny Turbo Changers Jazz, Acid Storm, Sideswipe, and what looks to me like Skydive, but they\'re all repaints and there are 0 new molds. This is easily the worst Tiny Turbo changers set ever produced, easily beating out the Movie Series\'s lack luster Series 4.

    That being said, Jazz and Sideswipe better have black heads. I\'ve wanted a Tiny Turbo Changers Jazz forever, and If all I\'m getting is a repaint, fine. It just better have a black head. I\'m also liking how I can get a cyberverse Acid Storm that doesn\'t suck ball bearings, so that\'s a plus!

    Probably not. I saw Sideswipe on the side of the box and his head looks 1 to 1 with Hot Rod's.

    Update: Sideswipe's head is black, thank god. Here's hoping Jazz gets the same treatment.

    It is quite confusing...

    Hasbro Shop has the Series 2 turbo changers, with figure images for series 1.
    The box of Series 2 does appear to show the characters from series 2 (including Acid Storm?), but the blind bags show Series 1 characters and clearly say 'Series 1'.
    Then the Amazon listings (Amazon Europe also has a listing active) show different figures for series 2 (and yet I am yet to see a listing for series 1).
    Amazon.com goes beyond that, and lists all characters from Series 1 and Series 2 in the same Series 2 listing...:crazy: 

    I am still not a 100% sure which characters go in each series..
    ...and I wonder if a whole box can be bought instead of a single blind bag (and the figure ratio per box)

    If they stick to their normal TTC practice, a case of 24 will be two complete sets.
