....But What Does It Mean?! SpiderEarth is on the case!

While Japan has their Wonder Festivals, we have a few awesome toy shows up our sleeve too, and I'm not talking about Comic Con.  Late November, we'll be seeing the Designer Con tent pop up in Southern California, and with that, we'll be seeing a crop of news and releases coming from artists and toy designers all across the world --- and in fact, it's already happening.

Released on Facebook and Instagram, the folks at Mystical Warriors of the Ring dropped this photograph with the caption "What do these have to do with Mystical Warriors of the Ring?  Stop by Designer Con in November to find out."

If you can't wait for Designer Con, then you're in luck!  I have my hunch or two.  Just get your tin foil hats on, because it's crazy Uncle SpiderEarth time!

Okay, with this one, we are going to be working with parallel coincidences.  We are going to take a few things we already know and can assume from the crew at Mystical Warriors of the Ring and apply it to this cryptic message.  Firstly, we can deduce from their recent release schedule, that they are hard-workers and have some difficulty holding back drops.  We saw this with the extra Goliath colorway drops this year, as well as the huge Series Two drop in multiple colorways.  It's been a busy and productive year for them for sure, but I have to assume that's how they like it.  Expecting things out of the blue and ahead of schedule isn't as crazy and wild as you'd think.  Also, we know they have been working on the Molie minifigure.  Molie is their mole interviewer character, and he was slated to be released in a future set.  Now we have the three other MUSCLE keshi minifigures in the picture.  Clockwise, that's Meat, Claw, and Sunshine E Top.  That's great and all, but what does that mean?  Although I could be wrong, I feel what will be shown off at Designer Con this year will be --- the prototypes of Series Four!

I think, for one reason or another, each of the characters in this picture represent someone in the new MWOTR set.  Of course the obvious tell is the announcer, but others can sort of give a clearer picture of what to expect too.  Sunshine and Claw are both villains, so we might see some baddies come our way.  Also, this is a alternative version of Sunshine, so we might see an alternative version of a villainous character already made.  Although, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Claw was a red herring, meant to represent a new Widowmaker alternative, because they both have multiple appendages.  Meat could be an easy riddle to figure out.  Where he's a sidekick of sorts, the same could be assumed of the MWOTR counterpart.

But that's just my crazy ideas!  What do you guys think?
