    Somebody should really have count meter on how many times fans want some g1 stuff and then start crying and complaining on what they get. Lovely fandom

    I'd also like a meter where fans rail about not getting non-G1 stuff but then get it and bitch incessantly about how it isn't good enough.

    I didn't realized not being cast bothers Frank and Peter so much. That honestly really changes my stance on new voice actors. If the OG actors want to reprise their role and they're able, cast them damnit!

    That Elita head looks dumb, and I still don't like those cheek vents Bee has.

    Let him retire? He can retire any time he pleases. He is not under contract until his death.

    I don't at all mind Optimus not being voiced by Peter Cullen. All my favorite Optimuses/Optimi(?) are voiced by other actors. What I take issue with is that John Bailey and this new Cyberverse kid are trying and failing to replicate Cullen's Optimus. Garry Chalk and David Kaye gave their Primes their own identity. These Cullen impressionists might be good if they try to make their Primes their own, but they're limiting themselves by being too stiff, (even Cullen's performance suffered this specifically in TFP) and just sound unnatural, very clearly trying to do a voice they don't have. But the worst part is apparently Hasbro isn't even offering Peter to play Optimus anymore? Just to save money by using non-union actors? Talk about your stone-cold slag. -_-

    They may not be using Cullen and Welker just because of budget. It might have nothing to do with unions. Paying some nobody pennies to do their best impersonations is probably way more cost effective.

    In fairness, it’s one and the same. If the production is SAG-AFTRA, you generally have to pay to the pension and insurance funds on top of the fees to voice cast, and you sometimes have to pay residuals as well.

    So, uh, when are we gonna talk about the Cybertronian letters in each promo?

    If we go Bumblebee, Elita-1, Mags that spells "K", "N", "I".

    Will there be enough posters that it turns out to be "KNIGHTS OF CYBERTRON"?
    I may be taking too much of a leap here without other posters' letters to go on but I reckon that there's some kinda hint going on there!

    not really crazy on how they all seem to have eyes designed for Megs or Starscream I just kinda expect BB to have a rounder fuller look even when mad.

    EARTHRISE figures so far had earth-based alt forms right? I'm hoping we would get a Cybertronian Bumblebee with whatever the alt made they would use in the show. Same for any other character we would see that didn't get a figure yet.

    Is it a plot Hint/SPOILER? Toy/Netflix Exclusive related?

    This could relate to a potential clue in a particular other thread a few days back. If so, expect four more letters...

    We can't write anything off until we get more letters, KING ?SOMETHING? could be a hint at Dinobots or someone's coronation, it's pretty up in the air. Plus it could be a more scrambled clue there's no guarantee they are consecutive and in the right order yet.

    18 posters seems like a lot, but I wonder how it marries up with the cast.

    Going off the list helpfully provided by @Jtprime17 we've got a sense of how many figures are due.

    E9494 Netflix Leader Ultra Magnus Spoiler Pack
    E9500 Netflix Voyager Megatron 3 Pack
    E9501 Netflix Voyager Hotlink 3 Pack
    E9502 Netflix Deluxe Decepticon Mirage
    E9503 Netflix Deluxe Hound
    E9504 Netflix Deluxe Chromia
    E9505 Netflix Deluxe Sideswipe
    E9506 Netflix Deluxe Scrapface
    F0702 Netflix Deluxe Bumblebee
    F0703 Netflix Deluxe Elita-1
    F0704 Netflix Deluxe Wheeljack
    F0705 Netflix Deluxe Red Alert
    F0706 Netflix Deluxe Impactor
    F0857 Selects Deluxe Tigertrack
    F0985 Netflix Deluxe Deepcover
    F0986 Netflix Deluxe Barricade
    F0987 Netflix Deluxe Cheetor
    F0988 Netflix Deluxe Quintesson

    Oh look, it's 18.

    Ok, but it can't tie directly to the figures, can it? I mean, it'd be weird if they wouldn't do a poster for Optimus.

    Right, so who'll be the featured characters in the cartoon? Well, the Tfwiki article notes 27 characters. The likes of Hotlink, Scrapface, Tigertrack, Deepcover, Cheetor and the Quint aren't listed. So 33?

    This isn't getting us anywhere.

    If I play the trailer, there are 5 characters with dialogue: Magnus, Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Elita 1.
    Jetfire, Starscream, Skywarp, Shockwave, Barricade, and Soundwave are all with Megatron as he addresses the crowd. There's the inevitable slew of Seekers shown, along with a couple of Reflectors, Flywheels, and Impactor. For the Autobots Wheeljack and Chromia seem to get a bit more focus, though Hound, Sideswipe, and Cog (and a red Cog) are all shown too.

    Has any of that been helpful? Possibly not. But maybe it, at the very least, collects a bunch of the data in one place for analysis?

    If I was going to hazard a guess, I'd assume 6 'bots and 6 'cons will get posters, coming in sets of three. So 3 more 'bots (Optimus, Wheeljack or Chromia, and Mirage?) and 6 'cons (Megatron, Starscream, Barricade, Impactor, Soundwave, Shockwave). I feel like they're going to lean into the 'Mirage is an Autobot spy who tries to turn Impactor' story from the Siege fan vote.

    I look at the three letters we've had so far and think 'king', but if it is king I'd move quickly from thinking that's any sort of Grimlock hint.

    Plot twist: we're assuming that we'll get a single letter per poster, but is it inconceivable that we'll get a poster with, say, all three Seekers, each of whom has a letter. It'd be a way of squeezing in more letters if you're worried about testing people's attention spans with too many posters.

    But if its in the order they were posted it would be INK but KNI makes more sense.

    Also the more I see Elita the more I crave the figure.
