- Seacons will be in it
- Ultra Magnus will make his US debut in the "original universe"
- Bludgeon will return
- Octopunch - "some characters will return, but will have changed from how you remember them"
- Nucleon will be in it, and resolve the outstanding issues (such as Grimlock not being able to Transform). Looking at what impact is had on characters such as Blaster etc. (aybe he'll turn Blue into Twincast??)
- Cover for 81 features Megatron on a thrown saying "what took you?"
