    At the suggestion of chrisr291, I have decided to start this thread to clear up the confusion of the new numbered (xx of 30) figures being released in 2013/2014. Also, we can keep track of and update this list as new announcements are made. I will update the first post to reflect newly announced figures when known. Any other suggestions? Let me know.

    Good thread. This will be very helpful to many on here.

    But this is one set (headache) I'm going to avoid collecting.

    Why couldn't the 2 Metroplexes been labeled 1A and 1B or something like thing, as well as the Shockwave lab set.

    I'm just starting to think that next summer, some of the higher numbers will be Autobot MP cars, like Prowl or Smokescreen. one can hope. I mean how many more con MPs besides the SS repaint can TRU give us

    I thought Springer and Blitzwing are 1 and 2. I think your numbering is off.

    Wheres springer and blitzwing? And why is bh exsclusives counted? I thought thrilling 30 was generations. And 30 was the year not the number of releases?

    I think the 30 special figures are meant to be almost random figures from a number of lines that are supposed to represent the 30th anniversary of transformers so it's not just generations or the number of figures coming out in a year.

    Click the last link in the first post and read all of the Official Hasbro release. The 30 for 30 are "select" figures out of everything they are putting out.

    example: Springer says it is part of the Thrilling 30 (meaning 30th ann.) but is not part of xx of 30 which is a subset of all Thrilling 30 Releases. It therefore has no xx of 30 numbering system located on its box.

    Also, it is not my numbering. It is all taken from the Official Hasbro Release statement that I linked to.

    Ah so the 30 has little to do with the main anniversary line and is mostly ecsclusives. Glad they dident do that with all of them :)

    wasn't fire convoy a false rumor.. being that bbts cancelled all of the preorders.. or is there new news that i'm unaware of?

    i really hope hasbro has more surprises for the 30th anniversary. i hope metroplex and a couple reissues and repaints aren't the only things we're getting. i hope they do something awesome.. but i'm not holding my breath.

    You are correct, fire convoy is not happening. The comment you quoted was an oldish one 8-8-13, and the news on fire convoy came after.

    It might be until NY Comic Con before we hear of the next batch of xx of 30 items.

    Updated front page with:
    12 Year of the Horse Optimus Prime

    I'm guessing they YOTH Starscream is xx of 30 as well, but need confirmation.

    Taking your question literally: Because Hasbro put it there.

    If you mean why on earth is a construct-bot set deserving such a special spot, then I'm just as confused as the next guy.
