From Hasbro, yes. but the Club is to give us stuff that Hasbro won't give us. We always get Optimuses and Megatrons that they've become so commonplace that the Club just making one more would be redundant and pointless.Siger wrote:Sabrblade wrote:I would be royally disappointed if it just turned out to be someone as mainstream and regular as Megatron.Siger wrote:Hopefully Megatron? Haven't had a decent one in a long time. Yes, the legends version was pretty good but we need at least a good voyager. No movie Mega-piece-of-messy-crap!
Logically, this character would make sense to be one of the knights, since all the pirates will likely me Squadron X characters, that would leave the knights to have this more known character within its ranks.
Well I don't even know one of the knights so that "Everyone knows him" part would be kinda misleading. What's wrong with another Megs? They are releasing 10 Optimuses a year and no one complains.
And the story is set 30 years after the G1 cartoon era of the Wings Universe, so Megatron is still Galvatron by this point, and is represented by his Universe 2008 toy body.
And all the Cons in this year's set of exclusives are Star Seeker pirates led by Cannonball, so including a Megatron in this would be nonsensical since Cannonball is the main villain leader of this story.
As for you not knowing any of the knights, no one does. Nothing has been said of who they are yet because the Club hasn't announced any clue of their identities yet. All their promotion thus far has been focused on the pirates, so for all we know the knights could be consistent of the most well known of mainstream icons short of the big tiers players (i.e. - Optimus, Bumblebee, Jazz, Ironhide, Rodimus, etc.). We just have to wait and see who they are.
But one thing's for sure is that the pirates are likely all obscure Squadron X dudes plus Cannonball.
