Interesting, especially since they decided to use Energon Optimus Prime. Hey, isn't it Energon's 10th Anniversary next year?
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I wonder if they'll continue this every year, or at least cover the "cool" animal years. Looks like there's a pattern of Optimus Prime + something that combines with him (Dragon had the trailer, Snake has Omega and the drone things).

Probably wont get these, but I'd like to see what they end up looking like.

Holy tits, I WANT those. I love the Energon Omega Supreme mold. Fattimus Prime not so much, but I'd get it just to go with OS.

Erm... what does GDO mean again?

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.

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
