We might as well speculate about what TFs might make the list. The 50 "hot toys" are going to be toys that they expect a high demand for, particularly from kids who beg for them for Christmas and drive most of their sales.

My concern about MP OP is that it's more of a collector piece. I don't think kids will be asking mom and dad for it, nor do I think TRU is expecting to move a lot of units of it.

FoC Bruticus is a more likely candidate, since it's based on a video game. But again, is it something that's going to be a hot, in-demand toy this fall?

On the other hand, maybe I'm wrong that the list will only be popular, high-demand items. Maybe TRU will use it as a way to promote sales of big-ticket items like MP OP.

Sadly, it does not appear that MP Optimus made the hot toy list for the TRU reservation system! :-(

Oh well, I guess it'll be the same old hunting nightmare where only the scalpers seem to hit the jackpot. Good luck to everyone because we'll be doing this the old fashion way.

Motto: "SHEEAGH!"
Considering 14 of the 50 items are TRU exclusives that, judging by sales of similar toys not all will sell; I'm a little surprised OP isn't on there.

Crap on a stick.

Well we all could just order Brok the Brachiosaurus as he is the only transforming toy on the list.
