The thing about rampant speculation is that if you open your mouth, you will almost certainly not always be right. But RAC has embraced that, and today he comes back to look over his own pre-Toy Fair predictions and see what happened and what didn't, and how close he got. There's only one category where he can claim 100% accuracy... keep reading to see what it is!
We were also wrong that there's an attempt being made to unify the line... but to be honest, we wish we weren't. Between just Authentics and Cyberverse, you'll be able to buy almost-identical Bumblebee designs for $5, 8, 10, 15, and 20 dollars. Mix in a possible Evergreen Generations stopgap wave and that adds probably one more at a second $20 option. Even if we're wrong about such a line, we'll have three subtly-different G1-derived lines next year(Authentics, Cyberverse, War For Cybertron Part 1), possibly more Studio Series (though we wouldn't bet on it), and Rescue Bots. If the market can bear that, seeing as all three are aimed at slightly different demographics, that's great. But if it can't and triage has to happen, it's going to be a mess. We love `84 too, but that love has its limits... and Transformers has become more, much more than just 1984. We understand that with no movies in the immediate future after Bumblebee we're likely headed into a conservative time for the line, but we'd really like to see the full, rich history of Transformers reflected to a greater degree.
