    So, I searched, and couldn't yet find a thread dedicated to the toys for the Animated Seekers / Clones. Right now there aren't many, but this is so we can keep tabs on who's coming out in which size class(es). I know many of us are hoping to pick up all the seekers in one size. I personally will probably repaint the ones we don't get, but would like to have as many of the official ones as possible.

    Note: For some reason Skywarp isn't listed as a clone in his bio, whereas the other clones with toys are, but I think it's safe to say at this point that he IS the coward Starscrem.

    Voyagers:
    Starscream - Animated Voyager Wave 1 - June 2008
    Skywarp (Coward Starscream) - Animated Voyager Wave 5 - December 2008
    Sunstorm (Sycophant Starscream) - Target Exclusive - March 2009

    Activators:
    Starscream - Animated Activators Wave 1 - June 2008
    Thundercracker (Egomaniac Starscream) - Animated Activators Wave 3 - December 2008
    Dirge (Greedy Starscream) - Animated Activators Wave 1 of 2009 - December 2008

    Legends:
    Starscream - Universe Legends Wave 4 - December 2008

    McDonald's Happy Meal Toys:
    Starscream - Animated Happy Meal Toys - July 2008

    None:
    Female Starscream
    Liar Starscream

    I will update this list as more info is available.

    He's supposedly not a repaint in the clone's exact colours. Not much to explain.

    I just hope they never make Animated Ramjet. He was the worst clone of the group!

    that was lying if you're slow on the uptake

    There was a Walmart listing for an Activator Ramjet too, so I'd put that one up there.

    If I get any of them, it'll be the Voyager Skywarp repaint (he is my favorite seeker). As for the others, the only one I would ever consider getting is if we also get a Voyager repaint in the Ramjet clone's colors. Though we already know we're supposed to be getting an Activators version of him (they could still make a Voyager at some point). I'm actually much more interested in seeing pictures of Wreck-Gar's toy so I can decide if I want to get him or not.

    Added, thanks. I knew I'd heard about another, but I couldn't find it in the official lists.

    I hope they complete them in one of the size classes. I really wouldn't mind if it was activators. If it was, I would display Voyager Starscream, and then rig something up so the rest would be flying in a circle behind him (like the one shot from the show). Then the scale wouldn't matter, because it would just be like they were farther in the distance.

    Oh, and Wreck-Gar should be sweet, I hope we get pics soon as well :)

    If they do make a full set of them, it'll more than likely be the Activators mold. Even with Hasbro wanting to get as many repaints out of their molds as possible (more so in Universe than in Animated), I just don't see them making that many repaints of a Voyager mold in one line. Even with one or two of them being store exclusives, I just don't see it happening.

    Besides the already confirmed Skywarp repaint, my hope is that we'll also get Thundercracker in a Voyager size, and if we're really lucky, the G1 colored clone as well. I'd like to have all 3 of these guys in Animated form in their old school colors.

    O rly?

    Sounds a lot like Armada Thundercracker, where on the show the colors were Starscream's 'super mode', but the toy/techs are a different guy.

    Now I'm not sure about Skywarp. I think the original news was a report that a Skywarp redeco of Voyager Starscream would be coming out, but wouldn't be a show character. And I think that was before the clones showed up in the series.

    There is a Skywarp on Ebay now, check out the pic:

    Animated Skywarp Found on eBay

    Then compare it to the coward clone image as shown in Wikipedia:

    Wikipedia - Skywarp - Transformers Animated

    Yeah, I think they were either shooting us misinformation, joking and the people who passed on the info missed the sarcasm, or plans chanced.

    I think the whole "he won't be part of a clone army" thing means that the toy will have a bio that has nothing to to with the show, and the only similarities between the toy and the clone in Skywarp's colors are just that, the colors. I might get the Skywarp repaint, as he is my favorite Seeker, but he'll more than likely be the only copy of the mold that I get.

    I finally updated this. I know, I'm a slacker. If anyone has info that I don't have, please let me know! Especially anything concerning the Seekers/Clones that don't have toys :(

    I am sure we will get all the clones, may not be straight away and they may be a exclusive of some kind. We will get them though.

    I'm still looking for Dirge to complete my animated seeker action. I hope they make more, but I doubt it.
