    Well just left my place in AZ, should arrive at 9:30. Hope that gives me enough time to make it for the announcement.

    Actually, I while I really don't think it's a *new* movie, the movie rights to those characters wouldn't be out of the question, especially since Scott said recently, "We kind of owe him one, don't we?" after people asking about Blade.

    It has to be the movie has been greenlit - that would be the biggest news and everything will follow after that - the movie will get MOTU mass exposure and publicity - and things like comics, toys, cartoons will follow that.

    Nothing will beat that, because its the only thing that is missing for MOTU presently that would get it back into the public eye.

    To answer my own question, here is an easy way for everyone to figure when the announcement happens.

    Current local time in Torrance (US)

    I think it would have two different audiences. Scott always said the MOTUC Castle would be 200 - 400, while the Icons one is a little over $100. The Icons one would do just fine with the passive MOTU audience while us crazy people would buy the really expensive castle.

    To preface this is nothing against Scott of Power-Con.

    But why would they want to officially announce the movie a) through Scott, and b) at Power-Con?

    Seems like something they would save for a bigger audience, even NYCC or just put out a press junket.

    There are very few things that I can think of that would actually be on par with "Biggest Announcement Ever" and that would be:

    ~New MOTU movie (possible)
    ~New motu cartoon/ retail toys (possible)
    ~MOTUC Castle Grayskull (unlikely)
    ~Cancellation of the line (Highly unlikely)

    If it is an announcement about a movie, I don't think it will be regarding the live-action movie as the studio would put out a press release for that.

    Although Bayformers gets alot of hate, look at what those movies have done for that franchise. New toys--even combiners came back this year, the Cybertron game series, 3 IDW comic books, and 4 television shows (G1, Animated, Rescue Bots and Prime) airing on the Hub. Transformers is bigger than ever.

    As long as Mattel has the wisdom to keep the original stuff out there along with the new stuff, like ThunderCats and TMNT did, then there shouldn't be a problem.

    Many movies get announced via press releases and you read the news on a website first. the way the movie industry moves you can't really 'wait' for a big event to announce it, sometimes the announcement is what makes the event big.

    Possibly they made a plan with Mattel to do kick off the press release AT power-con.

    Not saying it IS the movie, but it's easy to see how it COULD be. so far we have movie info it felt like it was on it's way and ramping up to go into production, so IF it's the movie the actual announcement would be giving a set date on the starting of principal photography, cast announcements etc.

    I wonder if this announcement has anything to do with things getting greenlit when the 2013 sub went through? TG mentioned this back in August, but had no plans to announce it then. Maybe this is a logical extension of it?

    As to what it is, I really don't know. A separate Filmation sub?

    Excellent point! After talking to WWE creative, Mattel realizes that they need a gimmick to get over with the fans/customers.

    There's a storyline where Mattel reveals they have signs of dementia when it comes to MOTU, and that explains some of the problems with the line. They just plain forget what they say in things.

    Then a few months later, Vince McMahon comes out on a MattyCollector video and "buys" Mattel, and then there's a huge WWE toy invasion in MOTUC. It could happen. All things will be settled at WrestleEternia 2013 (on the 15th of some month), when John Cena clashes with He-Man in a non-wanted two pack for the ages.

    In my view:

    ~New MOTU movie (out of the question: it's been in development hell for many years on end, and most movie projects entering that vicious circle end up buried and forgotten)

    ~New motu cartoon/ retail toys (out of the question: without movie, no retail toys)

    ~MOTUC Castle Grayskull (highly unlikely: Mattel has already made their zero-risk near-zero investment policy towards this brand abundantly clear)

    ~Cancellation of the line (very likely: if the 2014 line finally made it, I would be genuinely surprised; Mattel's "either take the black pastic or we'll cheap out some other way" attitude is already crystalline clear, and after the blaxtic fiasco most customers have also made it clear they're not going to continue to support the line if such substandard quality has come to stay one way or another)

    This sounds logical, but doesn't fit in the category of "Biggest News Ever" in my opinion. But again, that's just my opinion.

    It's going to be the Battle Ram. Scott will announce that enough windraiders were sold to justify another Vehicle and that the Battle Ram is a go for 2013.

    I'm guessing this has something to do with the thing scott mentioned that management greenlit during his video confirming the 2013 sub went through. Doubtful a movie or cartoon greenlight. This in all liklihood has to do with MOTUC otherwise it would be announced/leaked through other channels already. Maybe testing out the preorder idea with the Battle Ram since it's already been sculpted and is low risk for that reason? Eh, probably more wishful thinking on my end. Looking forward to the announcement and hope that Scott hasn't hyped up whatever it is too much.

    How about Lego Masters? It would be the biggest and smallest announcement at the same time. (this is more wishful thinking than a realistic hope).

    Or maybe their crack lab of researchers found out that if you feed your MOTUC after midnight, the paint magically repairs itself, eliminating all black spots.
