    A "subline" (or "subline imprint") can be two things:
    - A "refresh" to extend a mainine at general retail (e.g. "The Unicron Battles", "Allspark Power", "Mini-Con Weaponizers")
    - A store exclusive "theme" (e.g. "Mission Earth" or "Clash of the Transformers")

    Sometimes both coincide and toys are branded as part of two sublines at once (e.g. "Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising" or "Mini-Con Weaponizers/Clash of the Transformers").

    Looks like it is Crosshairs and Barricade in the back! And Barricade is firing at another TF on the tower. Question is, is Crosshairs fighting alongside Barricade? They are obviously not fighting each other. Could Crosshairs be a turncoat?

    No. Thats just a poster.

    If anything, I would wonder if this would confirm a two pack of the too. Crosshairs looks a lot like his legion figure, kinda.

    Wasn't there a legion two pack listing found at some point? It's not in the TRU image listings from a while back. I think I remember it from some UK site that listed Trypticon as an April release.

    So I'm guessing the "Cybertron" set for $160 will be a two-pack of Leader Optimus and Megatron, with a Cybertronian structure.

    A two pack of Deluxe Bee and Hot Rod for around $30-40
    The Infernocus with Quintessa five pack, confirmed for $35
    Then a two-pack of Crosshairs and Barricade, either legion or Deluxe.

    Then of course Skullitron, Megatron, and Nitro, who we know are all individually packaged.

    Theres also still a $40 "All Spark Starter Pack" which I think may just be multi-pack of the $15 Allspark Cube figures. Target has been getting a lot of One-step five packs, kinda like that.

    Yeah I know it's just a poster lmao! But on another poster, OP and Megs are fighting each other. So why isn't Barricade and Crosshairs? Just looks strange that they are both facing the same direction at whoever Barricade is firing at. I seen another picture of a similar poster that showed a TF standing behind Megs and OP who are fighting.

    I hope Nitro is not only an exclusive. I am interested but there is not a TRU near by and a price higher than the normal price for Voyagers will affect the number of figures I can buy on a tight budget.

    I'm still waiting for the full poster..you know that one that came with the Bee and Hot Rod artwork,it looks more epic than this small sized one.That one had Earth up in the distance and the tentacles were grabbing it.

    So I can see clearly bumblebee with is Cannon , someone pointed out barricade and crosshairs, obviously Optimus and Megatron.

    There's a few more scattered throughout the picture from different pieces

    Im wondering if this means we might get some exclusive 2 pks of main line figures with different decos in a addition to new figures.

    Bumblebee & ?
    Crosshairs & barricade
    Optimus & Megatron

    Nothing on the uk website, but I don't think that's necessarily an indication that we won't be getting the related figures.

    Can't see Barricade or Crosshairs on the banner but there's a tiny (high up) Hot Rod from what I can make out.

    Bumblebee & Hotrod, if that other leaked image is any indication.
