We can guess what this means. Even more show-accurate color schemes (Starscream needs one badly). Maybe some chrome or metallic paint. Perhaps even new Japanese fiction for the series! Only time will tell.

But this news has me seriously hyped for their side of the story. :D
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Either that, or better yet, the remaining seekers that weren't released over here such as Ramjet and perhaps, if they can pull it off, a Slipstream.
