    This would explain why wave 1 was street dated for June 23. They entered the one for the subline instead.

    Yeah. Even their own listings I guess. They may have received the stock for Mission To Cybertron before the mainline figures. This whole things is coming together.

    Okay! This looks promising! I actually don't mind the two-pack format. I can grab Onslaught and Nitro together in one go, if my budget allows it. Same with Bumblebee v.2 (I think he's in the 2-pack?) and Hot Rod.

    Maybe the Deluxe Megatron will be in a two pack with a good Optimus Prime toy.

    I didn't see two packs mentioned in the poster. Where are we hearing this?

    Leaked a while back on a TRU listing. Two 2-Packs. One Deluxe, One Legion. There was also a combiner which matched with Infernocus.
    We connected that to the mysterious MTC image featuring Bumblebee and Hotrod. The other Proposed 2-Pack is Optimus and Megatron with a Cybertron Playset.

    Is all the talk of Cybertron simply for this promotion, or is this an actual plot point from the movie? My understanding (which is minimal, since I haven't followed the movies much) is that Cybertron was destroyed in DOTM.

    I have. I've seen something vaguely planet-like about to eat the moon, and pieces of a planet and/or ship tearing up the erf, but since no one in any trailer I've seen has said "that's Cybertron!", and there's speculation about Unicron, I haven't made any assumptions.

    Filthy Autobot LIES! It was Optimus himself who destroyed Cybertron, when he collapsed the Space Birdge on it... not the war! :D

    Well it's pretty much confirmed at this point that that's
    the shattered remains of cybertron around a central core

    Technically that artwork should be Megatrons '07 cybertronian form.

    We just assumed it was destroyed, but if we look at he novel adaptation its stated that Cybertron was brought back to its original position, seeing Cybertron could be in the movie, that could mean that black hole that cosumed Cybertron in DOTM, didnt destroyed it, it only teleported it back to where it once stood, like it was originally intended.

    From what we've seen it looks to be chunks of the planet

    Mission to Cybertron? Is the one where Optimus Prime blasted off into space and froze a few days later? :lol

    You know, there's never been evidence that Cybertron was destroyed. That's what I've thought anyway. Saying that it was destroyed just because it collapsed into itself is like suggesting that all ships in Star Wars that go into hyperdrive (or whatever it's called) are destroyed just because before they disappear their physical form is stretched inconceivably. My point is that it could simply have been a visual effect to show Cybertron returning to where it was and nothing more. After all, Cybertron was safe after the same event in G1.
