    I like it when they repaint/retool old toys to pad out these lines. You get some neat new colors sometimes! :)  Bomber-Megatron, for example - there's a toy I might get again, despite the Bay-head. :puke: 

    Obviously not a big fan of movie-verse, but the one nice thing is when they run out of movie characters and start expanding into G1 (especially within these exclusive sublines), with some decent G1 reduxes (i.e. DotM Cyberverse Powerglide - although that one wasn't a subline exclusive).

    It was a Subline but not a Store Exclusive. Come to think of it, can't call it a subline considering how large it was.

    Quintessa: Optimus Prime, you destroyed your home. Do you seek redemption?

    and

    Optimus Prime: For my world to live, yours must die.

    Also, the planetoid has hexagonal structures, the same as Cybertron has.

    It may be Hot Rod but I'm seeing Crosshairs hat with the goggles on it, but maybe that is Hot Rod because in the latest trailer Bee and Hot Rod were flying those drone ships that were used in the Chicago chase section of AoE

    So this is going to come out with wave 1 on Monday? I think that would be really cool if that's the case.

    I hope so! That would mean I could score Skullitron, Infernocus and Nitro that day!

    BTW @SilverOptimus it is 100% confirmed that the retail release date is the 24th now instead of the 28th, right?

    If that's the case, I hope they prove that the fake poster of all those TRU Exclusive figures are actually real.

    I really don't think that poster was real Hot Rod was a mesh of Roadbuster's legs from DOTM lockdowns Chest from AOE and from what I saw were Construct-Bot arms

    I'm still holding out hope that we'll still see characters like Hot Rod and Onslaught be part of the subline as a way to make up for not having them in the regular line.

    I just feel there are some parts on Onslaught that don't make him look like ROTF Long Haul.

    With all the characters that have not as of yet received figures. I could definitely see the MTC subline run at least two waves.

    Hot rod
    Cogman
    Bulldog ?
    Hooligan ( not holding my breath )
    Mohawk

    Onslaught

    Sense the dread ( berserker ) head became a figure that other head in cades shop might as well.

    Junk truck character ?

    As well as a handful full of never proven potential characters.

    Other knights. Or bigger infernocons

    I don't know about Sublines, but I do know they probably don't have more than one wave.

    Which is why I'm taking no chances for it coming to Canada. Sometimes US Exclusives can't be found in Canada.

    Toys R Us exclusives are typically a safe bet as far as Canada is concerned

    I was at my local TRU and while they said there is a release, they had wave 1 Voyager and Deluxe, they said they were getting a lot more on the 28th.

    Though it may vary by store.

    Are these all going to be repainted molds from up to ten years ago for double the price?

    The $8.99 legion class at Toys is enough to end it all for me. Maybe the blind bag Microchangers can be $7.

    I blame Shopkins. People paying $5 for two chunks of rubber you used to get in an egg from a vending machine for a quarter made every beancounter green with envy.

    Just wondering. Have there been any Sublines that had exclusive new mold figures?

    Because, if I remember some, they were all repaints.

    HFTD was not a subline of ROTF, it was the successor line and segued into Reveal The Shield (2011).

    RID Clash of the Transformers had an exclusive Legion Megatronus (2-pack with an Optimus Prime redecos) and an exclusive Mega 5-Step Megatronus. Oh, and an exclusive Power Heroes Starscream.

    Haven't been paying attention to RID.
