    I guess we'll have to wait for next week's officially aired episode for a clearer pic, but you can guess from this as well:

    The whole block-shaped head suggests a (G1) combiner limb for me, and I can't shake it that I know who he is, even with the Wyatt-chin applied... :) 

    Hmm, maybe Groove? The helmet's style and the detailed chin (even the G1 toy had a pronounced chin) do bear similarities. Personality wise, I can totally see him being a ninja, he's a born loner and a bit of a pacifist like Prowl.

    The other helmets we have seen (and I could make out) were from right to left:

    Jazz
    Dai Atlas
    Yoketron (everyone thinks it's Bludgeon, but simply, Yoketron's helmet looks like Bludgeon's. And it's logical that the head of the "dojo" gets the main place in the memorial)
    Devcon
    Ultra Magnus
    Springer (?)

    This guy on the right is also interesting -

    Almost reminds me of G1 Divebomb. At any rate, I bet his helmet/head is part of the vehicle's nose he transforms into. Well, again we'll have to wait for next week.

    I still say Bludgeon. It'd be silly to have an episode focused on martial arts and not include the Transformer that introduced the entire idea of Transformers martial arts in the first place.

    Although that would make sense, the head doesn't put me in the mind of Bludgeon. I could go with the thought of Groove as it would add to the motorbike thing some TF:A ninjas have going on like Prowl and Oilslick (if Oilslick is still a ninja - I forget).

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Bludgeon in TFA (one of my all-time favourite Cons after Shockwave and Carnivac), but the helmets are too much alike... at least from what I can make out from that blurry pic.

    [​IMG]

    But then, maybe Yoketron got the helmet from Bludgeon, his old master and it was passed on to him... after all maybe Bludgeon was the one who invented Metallikato in the first place... His return, as a Decepticon, could be a great plot developement...

    Oh man I wish Animated would go on for 10 more seasons so we could find out such things. :(  The Simpsons is at the 20th season now... Animated deserves at least half as much... :(

    I totally agree that the head is G1 combinder-ish...possibly blades? I could see him as a sword master..just a thought.

    I doubt the head would be Bludgeon, seeing that's a Decepticon. If the war was already happening, I'd say as a Decepticon he'd be on the wrong side, and Yoketron would turn off the lights on his shrine out of shame as well..

    Anyway, awesome finds!

    Him was my first idea too, with the 'blades' name kinda giving a swordsman vibe... but his head is a lot different, he doesn't have a 'middle crest' - See here!

    I should know - Blades was my first real (non-micromaster) G1 toy back in 1990, I know him in and out... ;) 

    I guess I misunderstood what Kickback meant, I thought he was referring to the helmet shown in the middle...

    Bludgeon's head is much different though, it is rounded on the top, and he has a visor.

    But I guess, since Wyatt LOVES Octopunch and wants to put him into the show, that we could see the "Terrible Trio" appearing... possibly. If there is ever any continuation.

    (Btw, I have killer idea for Animated Octopunch. I'd love to draw it, but I'm afraid everyone who sees it would die... from laughter. :)  )

    Oh man, Might Gaine on the AllSpark totally figured it out - the guy on the far right, with the horns and the pointy head, is totally Star Upper.

    HOLY SHIT. IT IS. See, this is the point where we should all beg Mr. Wyatt for full body drawings of all these bots.

    Hmm, anyone who visits his blog/twitter/whatever that is, should ask for confirmation on who the "heads" are, I doubt they could be spoiler-ific.

    Star Upper, maaan... :)  I loved that BW2 comic. Didn't know he had later appearances.

    Way on the right is Springer, and the second from the left is Groove I think.

    EDIT: There' even more of these bad boys. All together there are 17 busts, counting Lockdown's.
