    I pass. I never liked the Animated line, but I was interested on this mold. Sad to say I don't like it. Eventough the Takara Version looks better.

    Got Blackout today!!!!!! Awesome to get a new Animated Figure. I love this dude, although a bit small, and awkward arm posing aside, he oozes character. Plus he has shiny bits! Now, I need that Voyager Thundercracker to be released.

    Got mine yesterday..opened it today. I really like him. I don't like the "rotor huge hand" but, the rest of him is gold. Set up Lugs and BO to stand over some legends....sweet.

    We don't know. Might hear something at botcon.

    Hasbro promised that all the produced animated stuff would get released, somehow, eventually. so I'm sure that means "yes". but it might be a looooong while. and the japanese release may just end up being the way hasbro was talking about.

    drag... after playing with him a bit, he can kinda hold it like a gun... except its held backwards... so he can't shoot the blade at anyone... but still... i may leave him like that... and now that i've got him, i wish we were getting Spittor, Cyclonus and Stryka now... stupid animated being over... bums me out...

    I remember seeing some pictures where they clipped the tail/shooter somewhere on his back in robot mode.

    i got my Takara Version and I'm impressed! and something i just noticed, on your hasbro blackout, his facial hair is not colored but in some other pics of the hasbro version with it colored, so possible mistake, or sample that wasnt fully colored

    Blackout does a good "Frankenstein or sleepwalker" pose too. I just wish he could do a "arms go where I want them to" pose.
