Not much of a surprise, but they're both Autobots.

RTS sure has an awful lot of Autobots, doesn't it? Or am I imagining that?

It's because of all the uncontrolled Decepticon hunting in the last line.

Doesn't help that every single carded Deluxe is an Autobot (even Mindset the guy who was supposed to be a Decepticon), and 3 of the 4 Voyagers are Autobots too. Even the Scouts (where there are the most Decepticons to Autobots) are still out numbered 2 to 3.

Perhaps because this way we're more likely to be genuinely surprised by a Decepticon?

It's so painfully obvious who the Decepticons are, it hurts.

Argh. I was hoping beyond hope that Bodyblock was a Decepticon. Or that, like, SOMEBODY would be. Geez.

This is almost like the Henkei! Henkei! lineup, but at least they had like another 5 to 6 Decepticons that were exclusives to add to the 7 normal releases (plus Ravage and Nightstick).

Meh, whatever. Since Bodyblock is probably going to become G2 Rook for me, it's easy as pie to resticker him, and ignore the random packaging blurb. I see the silver borders are back on the rubsigns, it seems like these must be the miniature ones they're starting to use on the Legends. It would be hard to find a flat surface large enough for a standard sized rubsign on a lot of the Scout toys we've gotten lately.

Deep Dive, Nightstick, Starscream, Megatron. Potentially Frenzy if they make him, and I'd guess we will get Starscream redecoed into Thundercracker and Skywarp.

You forgot Trailcutter and Prowl for Autobots.

Also we have a lot of potential repaint/remolds still unaccounted for who may end up in RTS and could be Decepticons... Thunderwing, Lugnut, Gen 2 Optimus, Tomahawk, Scourge and Wreck-Gar will get remolds.

Also remember that Reveal the Shield is just a gimmick of a part of the 2010 "Transformers" line, which includes the yellowbox, redbox, Generations, all those mini-cons... if you count the Seacons reissue that's 6 more Decepticons in the Transformers line. Do they have rub signs? If not they should.

PCC is Decepticon heavy at the moment, I think.

Look at the list above a couple posts (I added the Legends). Not going to count Nightstick as a separate guy. We can't count any retools/redecos that may or may not come out. Even one like Frenzy (the guy I call Rumble).

Even if they did come out I doubt we'd get solid waves of Decepticons (like we did with Autobot Deluxes).

Power Core Combiners and Generations are pretty evenly split between factions. RtS is overabundant in Autobots.
