You know, that might actually be a very good guess. ;)^
I think the first line is different. The font is too big to fit Golden Age above War For Cybertron, if we assume they're the same length. From the way it looks, the word ending in -GE is only 5 or 6 letters long. I think Va'al might be onto something with his guess of "Siege." It is a form of battle in war. My first guess was "carnage" but that might be too long, and I don't think Hasbro would put that on a box for a kid's toy.

It's also a trademark that Hasbro recently used, why use it only once? ;)

I had made the same guess, but came to the same conclusion, it just doesn't fit the font size. It seems like they're going back to the Unicron Trilogy naming convention and using one-word titles (Armada/Energon/Cybertron). Transformers: Siege does make sense in that way, as does Rage. I'm sure we'll know in about a week.

I think he just meant the single word by itself, since the logo in the video has the "-GE" a the end of the series name.

Normally they can't trademark single words like that, but Hasbro has been known to recycle parts of old trademarks for newer ones.

Well, presumably, it would be "Transformers: something-ge" in full.

2006 gave us the intended-to-be definitive prequel, which even Shout! Factory published with their mass market complete series DVD set.

Transformers Silhouette Teaser for San Diego Comic Con 2018 Reveal

Postby Va'al » Wed Jul 11, 2018 3:36 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
According to the social media accounts for Hasbro Transformers, as pointed out by fellow Seibertronian TFanPage101 via email notification, there is news actually awaiting fans at next week's San Diego Comic Con 2018, including the full reveal of the teaser image below.

What seems to be shown is the silhouette of an Optimus Prime recognisable figure, with smokestacks on its shoulders and an axe and a gun in its hands, and an indication to follow the Hasbro Pulse newsletters and accounts for more information during the event - but we know that the best content will be on our front page as soon as images are allowed to be posted, so stay tuned, and in the meantime, speculate away on this new figure! Is it War for Cybertron, another exclusive, part of those Amazon listings, or something else entirely?

Don't miss a beat. Follow @hasbropulse to stay current on new Transformers reveals now and during San Diego Comic Con! #HasbroSDCC

Kind of hope he's just a new, simple voyager Optimus figure. I like the Classics one but if they could outdo it with a new Optimus without a gimmick and isn't a triple changer I'm into it. With how intricate and impressive Punch/Counterpunch looks I'd imagine they could do some impressive stuff with this.

Echoing Autobot Roadburn: if it’s a Voyager that looks good and isn’t gimmick-laden like the Prime Wars guys, sure. Even better if it’s a Megatron, then I can retire Titans Return Megatron (as good as it is, the Headmaster thing slightly bothers me).

I don't think so. This one doesn't have as bulky of a backpack, his chest proportions look different (PotP Optimus has the huge chest windows), the arm panels have a different shape and his head is a bit different - this silhouette has a taller "mohawk" and the smaller inner antennae seem to have disappeared. These are things that could just be from different angles but it looks like a new mold to me.

I'm also just hoping for a new smaller mold with no gimmicks at this point but I could be wrong. We'll see in about a week.

I'm guessing possibly a Shattered Glass POTP OP? It makes fiscal sense.

Make a new mold of Optimus Prime - Profit!
Paint that mold black and sell it again - More profit!
Paint that mold purple and set it again again - Even more profit!

Well who wasn't expecting a op figure? Though I'm a bit torn between saying it's war for Cybertron and going the curveball route and saying they are besting takara to the punch and sayings it's the new mp op.
