Courtesy of ACToys.net we have very interesting information on a pair of exclusives for the Asian Market in 2013. To celebrate the Year of the Snake in February 2012, Hasbro/Takara will release Energon Optimus Prime and Energon Omega Supreme in Year of the Snake decos. No word on the pricing or the actuality of the release of these two figures, so take it with a grain of salt.

I realized why they might've picked the Energon Omega Supreme mold. His super train mode is long and snake-like. They might even paint a snake head on the end of it.

I hope it's green.

General Direct Order

It refers to all the Hasbro Asia figures like those China Import Generations figure and the "Year of the Dragon" Ultimate Optimus Prime.

More confused now ... what does General Direct Order mean and how is it relevant to the China Imports?

Woah, slow the roll. GDO = Global Development Organization, iirc from "elsewhere" on the internet. Someone emailed Hasbro to get that information. The assumption is that it refers to products conceived by this internal organization.

That makes more sense than General Direct Order, and doesn't need any further explanation.

Alright, yeah, that does make more sense.

Looking back at where I was told the answer I gave, I guess it was told sarcastically (and we all know how well the Internet translates sarcasm).

So can we expect all 12 years to be done? And will they all be Autobots and/or Primes?

And I think Year of the Cock would fit Megatron a little better. :P
