    Is anybody wondering what the Platinum Item for Year of the Goat will be? I'm kind of hoping for a Soundblaster repaint of MP Soundwave seeing as I missed the initial run but I'd be open to other suggestions. Also I will be severely disappointed if Year of the Monkey isn't an Optimus Primal toy of some sort.

    Wonder if they'll even bother this time. "Year of the Goat" doesn't sound quite as cool as "year of the dragon, snake, or horse". :p

    Year Of the Lamb or Sheep, I agree with you all that YOTG sounds bad. If it has to be YOTG.. as I said.. it should be YOTH SS with new box art. He's definitely YOT GOAT!

    In all honesty I really don't think Hasbro should continue with YOT__ theme,I mean why should they since our culture really doesn't celebrate it like other cultures do,so as for year of the goat I wouldn't be as enthused about what figure they make with that type of theme,unless maybe its like someone said it was Masterpiece Ramulus then I might get it if is was nice,but otherwise who needs another MP Optimus Prime with Chinese symbols that you can't even read cause you never learned how.

    In case you didn't know, the "Year Of The..." Series is not about "sounding cool". It references the Chinese Han Calendar. From Jan 31st 2014 to Feb 18th 2015 is the year of the horse, next time it's year of the goat and so on.

    I would love a "Golden Fleece" repaint of Beast Wars Ramulus for the upcoming Year of the Ram. And I agree with the OP, gotta keep this thing going for the Year of the Monkey Optimus Primal!

    But the Chinese Han year (01/31/15-02/18/16) is year of the goat, period... They're not changing a millennia old calendar for the sake of a toy.

    It could be red and gold recolourings of some of the best Transformers toys to date and call it the "Greatest Of All Time" (GOAT for those who don't see it) line to celebrate the Year of the Goat

    It was always my understanding that Hasbro makes these for the purpose of releasing these toys to the Chinese market that never really received the original releases of these molds in the first place, so it would be strange not to continue doing this.


    Personally, I think chances are high that we'll either see a repaint of the Cybertron Optimus Prime mold or the Energon leader Megatron/Galvatron mold.

    I'm guessing it'll be a goldy/darker red repaint of Evasion Optimus...

    Seriously. Year of the Dragon was a repaint of DOTM Ultimate Prime, Year of the Horse was a repaint of MP10... so I'm guessing YOTG would be another Prime repaint... and seeing as Evasion is so repaint happy already...

    Well to be fair 羊 refers to either sheep or goats and is often translated as either sheep, ram, or goat, so its not really so straightforward.
