    I think they've been having a rough few years. When's the last time they had a blockbuster.

    Just to be clear, I like MT stuff more than FT. Transforming MT figures is actually pretty fun.

    I'd say their last blockbuster was the Seeker mold. It sold very well and commands just stupid prices now.

    I think the Mass toys fiasco did a number on them and they screwed the pooch on the Sunstorm crowd funder. The 2nd one didn't get off the ground, that Jetfire was lukewarm at best and Endgame was good but definitely not something to build excitement over.

    Thundercracker and Skywarp were released two years ago. So yeah, they've had a rough two years. They should try doing a crowdfund of the Headmasters.

    Very eager to see the progress of Armor UMagnus from MS and especially NA.
    Also if they're not abandoning yet: Iron Warrior TF Prime UMagnus, Banana Force Great Armor/RID UMagnus, IF EX44 UMagnus/IDW

    I'm hoping we get a lot from FansToys and Zeta, hopefully the return of MakeToys (Seeker reissues with the wing fillers included and the redesigned nose cone would be epic), and some nice surprises along the way from everyone else.
    I'd love to see a company like FansToys or DX9 have a new release that's coming out within a month where they just drop a finished figure on us at the panel (think DX9 Richtofen/Powerglide, for example).
    And maybe Keith will finally get his companies back into gear. A certain trailer would be nice to see, for example.

    Ok, less than a week away, and we still don't know what the exclusives are?

    The TFCon Instagram account is slowly starting to get more active as well.

    As I predicted in the XTB Menasor's thread, it will be the Power Point Battle of the Century.

    Silhouettes of figures that will only appear years later, POs for figures still in design stage (KFC Power Master OP), mythical figures like XTB's Abaddon All Hope and No Virtus.

    YouTube or whatever medium they'll be using might just blow to bits from the insane amount of BS crammed into the "presentation".

    You could've added "Spoiler Alert" to your post. Now I don't have any need to watch next weekend.

    I'm waiting to see on KFC PM OP myself because its going to decide whether I cancel my all most a year pre-order for him. I had hoped this year or by 1st quarter of 2021 prior to knowing Junkions and Quint were coming out next.

    Otherwise, I'm only watching to see if there is this big need to still keep pre-ordering anything for 2021 releases or if I should wait as long as I can scenario. The FT stuff just got ridiculous that we are blowing up on ordering way too early on only prototypes shown and with 2030 releases.

    Well that may happen, but those are usually from the companies I’m least interested in such as KFC and FT. There’ll surely be a few more interesting things from other people.

    I'd assume they would be exclusive to retailers, like Toy Dojo and The Chosen Prime, and maybe even TFSource.

    I just want to see some slides of MMC's Optus Pexus featuring the new head or packaging.

    I've been thinking and really the only thing I need is for the 3P panel to not be full of things revealed years ago with no updates and stuff already released. I'm probably asking for too much.

    As others have said it will be available from whichever retailer sponsored the exclusive. Any MMC figures will be available on www.planetsteelexpress.com as well.

    I just wanna see more on both Legends scale Menasors, as well as any future Legends combiners they have planned.

    Anything else is gravy.

    Rioter Galcatron or bust!

    Also hopefully some cool MMC reveals. And really anything CHUG.
    I wonder if there's any chance that new Trojan Horse company will make an appearance...
