    Rick: “Rorti, we have to fight the Autobots in space. Take this *URRRP* gun and defeat the Godmasters in the name of Devil Z.”
    Rorti: “But I’m scared, Rick. Some of them look like giant men.”
    Rick: “You and the rest of the Guardminders will be fine, Rorti. Nothing could possibly go wrong.”

    *all of the Guardminders get defeated*

    “This is why you suck, Rorti. All of your troops are dead. You’ll never amount to-” *BLAM*

    God Ginrai: “Finally. Thought he’d never shut up.”

    Call it a hunch...but I think most of these are gonna be some sick repaints, and some members for your 1984-85 collection....which is obvious...but its wise we wait till tomorrow

    we likely know all the characters that will be revealed:
    so it's more a matter of what order, and what the deco's end up looking like.
    I'm curious if they'll do another Green G2 Megatron when last years is still warming virtual shelves, or go with the purple Combat Hero deco.

    My biggest hope is Bugbite getting a G1 Bumblebee toy masked face.

    For what it's worth, their CW G2 Slingshot is still fine, so I don't think we have anything to worry about.

    I thought just read some unsubstantiated reports (possibly a post from @LoserBroadside ???) this week about CW G2 Slingshots starting to break...

    Yeah I wouldn't expect anything we aren't already aware of via leaks.

    Next five weeks seem like a sprint to clean up the backlog ahead of a potential Kingdom roll out at NYTF.

    I guess I'd buy Hothouse and Roritchi, but the rest are probably a pass... G2 Megs maybe depending on if there are new parts or good amount of paint.
    I may be the only one, but I'd love it if we got some G2 Seeker repaints, I really want G2 Starscream and G2 Ramjet as I still have their original G2 versions.

    It would also be cool if some of these were completely original new molds/remolds that none of us were anticipating. Probably not, though.

    Edit: Also just really want to say that I hope Hot House is his original neon-watermelon-pink and orange color scheme. Hopefully they don't do to us what they always do with Hot Rod and make him generic fire-engine-red.

    Well, since they're saying "reveals" I think it would be really weak if they cheat us by just "revealing" that a toy they already revealed is up for sale.
    So hopefully the Quint pack isn't one of these.

    It won't be, the post specifically says that they are revealing Generations Selects figures, the quint pit of judgement isn't a selects release plus as you said, it's already been revealed

    yeah, I am really curious if they'd do anything to make his shoulder mounted cannon better then just plugging it into the top of his backpack. (not even sure how well it will work with the goofy Earthrise sword/cannon with all that tank kibble in the middle of it.
