    So summarizing the hints from this morning:

    Two out of three of the following (one is a red herring):
    (a) Cars doing donuts (guess: Burnout?)
    (b) The tfwiki page on Targetmasters (guess: some Targetmaster?)
    (c) Something about tower crane accidents (guess: Hauler?)

    AND

    Two out of three of the following (one is a red herring):
    (a) The Diaclone powered convoy commercial (guess: EDIT: not Magna convoy, but in the commercial EDIT EDIT: Earth Hound or Clampdown)
    (b) Transformers: Cybertron - Wikipedia (guess: one of the UT characters is from that list?)
    (c) https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/om/PA0202/PA0202O00083A.pdf (Guess: it's instructions for a manual gear shifter, so Gears? Less likely: the first page talks about the clutch, and according to tfwiki Clutch is an accessory that came with 2002 Crosscut. But they probably wouldn't do 2 Skids'es in the same wave. Also Double Clutch is a G2 Go-Bot race car. The instructions also talk about 4 Wheel Drive mode -- are there any notorious 4 wheel drive candidates?)

    Oh god. There’s so many in that commercial! Clampdown stands out though as the one we haven’t had a leak for yet. Sadly, no red Mirage or black Ironhide.



    Also, please stop with the red herrings.. I don’t want the mods shutting it all down…

    Mostly ones we already have leaks or new figures for. Clampdown is the only one other than earth Hound we don’t have yet.

    So if the current known lineup really is Scourge, Hauler, Burn-out, Clampdown, and Gears, I'd be all in so far other than Scourge.

    Love me some diaclone, Clampdown in particular is a major want for me, have wanted a Hauler ever since I got Grapple, and Gears is a must just to be one step closer to a full team of minibots.

    That would be both of the Diaclone and G1 guys though wouldn't it? I assume Override will be on of the UT figures, who I'd have to see first.

    No matter what the G2 figure is I'll be all over it.

    RID - Black Convoy/Scourge
    G1 - Hauler
    G1 - Gears
    G2 - Road Rocket
    Diaclone - Clampdown
    Diaclone - Burn Out
    AEC - Nitro Convoy/Override
    AEC - Armada Wheeljack

    unless the red herring was that were getting magna convoy, i think gears might be a red herring here

    Sounds like the lineup is
    Diaclones: Burn-Out and Clampdown
    G1's: Hauler and Gears
    G2: Road Rocket
    RID: Scourge
    UT: Cybertron Override and Armada Sideways

    Problem: every one of those guys has wheels...

    Was this (or Hauler being definite) confirmed? I missed that.

    It's Clampdown right? He's like the front most bot on the Convoy at the start of the commercial and has been speculated on a bunch.

    Who is the second one on the bottom of the trailer at 0:09 (Wheeljack, ?, Mirage, Road Rage). It looks like an all grey Bluestreak but I thought that wasn't Diaclone? Is the coloring just weird for the commercial?

    I haven't watched the commercial but the last thing I heard was the all-gray Bluestreak was exclusive to Italy, just like the black Tracks was exclusive to Finland.

    That would certainly be a different take on Override... but I could see it working. Plus, I've long said that Titans Return Nautica looked like she was originally intended to be Override if you look at her head. Looks nothing like Nautica but it does kind of resemble Nitro Convoy/Override.

    I honestly really don't care what Override is retooled from at this point, they can't screw her up as bad as they screwed up GUOP and for her character they practically already have my money

    Crane accidents makes me think Armada Smokescreen, given his whole number mystery.
