    I don't think Hasbro Australia would get to reveal the Titan or Commander (especially since those typically aren't given a full reveal until around NYTF). Probably a Selects figure, or maybe a retail SS figure.

    Seems it will be a different figure than what they intended to reveal in July.

    It would be cool if we got a proper look at the Ark

    I'd laugh if it was just ROTF Bee. A slight redeco of a toy that's clogging shelves and on sale most of the time online

    Where's the fallen?

    Really strange that we still haven't got him in the studio series line

    An Australian reveal that won't drop until April? Well allow me to make the obvious joke and it's a new Springer for Kingdom with a kangaroo beast mode.

    Which would be a good argument for something like the Kingdom Titan or Commander. They specifically mentioned how they wanted to have the reveal someplace where people could come see it (Noting that even if that was allowed in Brisbane they know it could be controversial in places where we can't get close. Which seems like a possible reference to how there won't be a New York event this October).

    And if they were going to reveal one thing in July but now want to reveal something else in October...two big changes since July are the reveal of Kingdom/SS86.

    So I wouldn't get too hyped for an Ark reveal/tease. But I would certainly put it in the realm of possibility next to the Commander figure. (Have the Titan/Commanders typically come out in April?)

    Since Hasbro Australia reveals tend to be redecoes and TonTon posted a video of him recently, I’d be really surprised if it wasn’t ROTF Bee.

    No, they're typically revealed in February and release in July. This reveal, and the expected release date, seem way too early.

    -New FIGURE reveal.
    -It can be a single figure from Kingdom (makes no sense).
    -Why would it be a SS Bayverse figure? Just a single figure?
    -This was supposed to be revealed back in July but it got cancelled due COVID.
    -Leakers where saying that earthmode Sideswipe was cancelled due COVID.
    -It would make sense that is an earthrise figure, the line is already in stores, nothing "new" in terms of new lines with a single figure.
    -Normal rettail figure.

    Ok:drunk :drunk

    It also says that a figure was supposed to be revealed in July, but then was moved to October with a different figure

    from the quoted text in the first post
    "This was originally planned to be done at the Sydney Hasbro office in July as a fan-meet reveal, but Covid prevented that... and then it was moved to October (with a different toy)"

    So whatever this reveal is, it's not what was going to be revealed back in July

    With the release date watch them announce ER Sideswipe and then when April rolls around they cancel the orders and call it an April fools joke. I’m onto you Hasbro!

    Okay then, so we're looking for likely Q2 (aka Wave 2) contenders...which, if paired with SS86, could mean Kingdom Galvatron to go alongside the recently revealed Scourge and Cyclonus. (Not to mention Hot Rod)

    That would give HasTak the ability to advertise Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus as HasLab contributors prepare to get their Unicron.

    HasTak frequently have revealed single figures (or partial waves) of Generations and Studio. You're right that it's not common, but given the current climate they're trying to spread reveals as wide as they can to reach multiple markets.

    And this sounds like something they don't want to sit on much longer. Which makes sense if it's something key to Q2.

    Could it be the next MPM Bumblebee?
    @Pixelmaster did say the factory was working on him and he speculated it might be shown during the previous Fan First Friday. Since he was absent there, perhaps this would be the occasion?

    Then again, every single MPM so far was first revealed through Hasbro Asia.

    Hope it's Kingdom/SS86 Galvatron.
