Generations Bots

Got a few questions,
1. Will Jazz and the others be back in the store?
2. Will my super special exclusives (Wheeljack, Megatronus, Thundercracker etc.) be in the store?
3. And if possible what will the dates for all the bots be?

Very nice event though I'm impressed 😁👌

    2. Maybe. Probably not TC, cause he's relatively exclusive.
    3. Dunno.

    Just guessin, i do hope TC comes by though.

    I popped one 5* crystal yesterday and got a new Jazz. Formed another today and... duped him.

    @Kabam Vydious Friends of mine are debating over "Generations inspired bots" because it easily transforms into the definition of "G1", can we confirm which are Generations inspired Bots in this game? Can we safely remove all Bayformers and BW bots to get the list?

    Considering he’s not on the re-release list, no

    Coincidently, if you remove Bayformers, Beast Wars, & Comic book/Extended Universe bots than you are left with 21 total. Exactly enough for 7 different bots a week for a 3 week period. With week 4 of Sep being a recycle. Here’s my projected list:

    Week 1: OGP, Shocky, Arcee, Galvy, MotorMaster, Jazz, & Jetfire

    Week 2: TC, WJ, SideSwipe, Rat, OG Megs, Ramjet, G1 Bee

    Week 3: Starscream, Mirage, WB, UM, Prowl, Soundwave, & Cyclonus

    Week 4: repeat week 1


    I could’ve missed someone so please chime in. Obviously WJ, G1 Bee, & Cyclonus are question marks because they each have their own extenuating circumstances. With G1 Bee as the prize for the Special Objectives maybe he isn’t in the Gen chips pool. Same for Cyclonus since he is one of the Monthly feature bots. As for WJ, he is always under lock & key so who knows. In the end, if they do have G1 Bee and Cyclonus in the Gen Chips Pool than a player has a decent chance at duping them which is awesome.

    I dedicate this comment to you @KillMasterC — I wonder what your alliance mates think.
  • KillMasterCKillMasterC Posts: 2,781
    Nice analysis @JIMMY_SAB . The main debate is whether G1 means G1 cartoon (98 episodes plus the movie), G1 cartoon plus G1 comic (Bludgeon included) or generalized G1 (Tronus, Windblade, Nemesis Prime etc). Some of the bots are certainly G1 but maybe they won't be put on the weekly rotation for the reasons you've listed.
  • KittenKitten Posts: 1,695
    Generations means G1 inspired bots, the more blocky and smooth ones. Not the chaos which is BAY and not beastformers.

    +1

    There are people who aren’t clear if “Generations inspired” means

    - G1 era bots only this month during the event, or
    - G1 this week, Bayverse next week, Beast Wars the following week, etc. (A different Generation each week).

    I know the bots themselves are a secret until release, but knowing the general reference can help decide if people want to buy a bot not coming back like say Motormaster this week.

    It's only the first four they said will be repeating.

    This Spotlight is 35 days long so if they are to have one bot per day there obviously has to be repeats. Is it possible they repeat the first few bots from each group after they've already cycled through once?

    Kickback and Blaster missing as well.

    Good catch @Red_Eyes — I’m guessing that G1 Bee and Cyclonus get bumped then.

    My revised projected list:


    Week 1: OGP, Shocky, Arcee, Galvy, MotorMaster, Jazz, & Jetfire

    Week 2: TC, WJ, SideSwipe, Rat, OG Megs, Ramjet, Kickback

    Week 3: Starscream, Mirage, WB, UM, Prowl, Soundwave, & Blaster

    Week 4: repeat week 1

    Also forgot about Grimlock. Maybe we won’t get a full recycle in week 4 of the week 1 bots....

    He is according to this:

    is Windblade considered to be Generations? (if Generations means G1)
  • JIMMY_SABJIMMY_SAB Posts: 636
    Ok, with only 4 bots from week 1 being recycled in week 4, there is room for 3 more bots. Revised projections:

    Week 1: OGP, Shocky, Arcee, Galvy, MotorMaster, Jazz, & Jetfire

    Week 2: TC, WJ, SideSwipe, Rat, OG Megs, Ramjet, Kickback

    Week 3: Starscream, Mirage, WB, UM, Prowl, Soundwave, & Blaster

    Week 4: Grimlock, Nemesis, Tantrum, OGP, Shockwave, Arcee, & Galvatron

    the event is from 8/29 to 10/3, like Red mention 35 days total; 5 weeks.

    we have 28 bots that would be considered G1..so every bot should appear at least once; including the exclusives.

    with the 4 repeat near the EOM, that'll bring the bot count to 32 (28+4); we'll still have room for 3 more bots.

    I can understand if Kabam doesn't want to let us know the order of the bots but they could give us a list of all the bots that will appear when the event is a bit convoluted.

    What are the 28 bots you have on your list of Generations @Voltron ?

    Windblade is a retroactive G1 character. She wasn’t originally but was later rewritten into it.
