Okay, maybe I’m looking too deeply into this, but just yesterday the official Transformers Collectors Club Tweeted the following:
2nd reveal in two weeks and will send shockwaves across fandoms!!!

Okay, first and foremost, when talking about Transformers, the word “Shockwaves” always brings a little twinkle to my eye, simply because he’s one of my favorite characters in Transformers lore. Another little curiosity, though was the word “fandoms”. Note the plural. Then as if those weren’t enough clues, guess who Retweeted that Tweet? Yeah, you guessed it, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club:
Interesting… “@The_TF_Club: 2nd reveal in two weeks and will send shockwaves across fandoms!!!”

Considering the “reveal” is mentioned by the Transformers side of the Collectors Club, it would seem evident that this is a Transformers item with potential G.I. Joe connections. Will this lead to more mixing of the two universes going forward? That will be interesting to see.
Kudos to the Club(s) for at least keeping things somewhat interesting in a slow news cycle for the G.I. Joe side of the house.
