    I was really hoping they would make a fig of her. Now that Animated is dying out, what are the chances of ever seeing her in plastic?

    I'm a huge fan of her since TFA, so my answer is:


    HELL YES.

    No. Animated is economically, clinically, religiously, and in every other possible way, dead. There is no possible chance of an Animated Slipstream figure at any point in the future, lest Hasbro decides to make a few anniversary figures for Animated or something.
    If she plays anything of a role for WFC2, or appears in TF Prime, she has a slim chance at getting a figure.

    Botcon may have the rest of the Seekers.

    Best bet for an animated Slipstream would likely be something akin to a botcon exclusive animated seeker repaint , with a new head. Thats even a long shot in my opinion.

    Fair enough, but I doubt that they would make a Slipstream, despite fan demands, due to the extensive remolding that would have to occur in order to make the body proper for that of Slipstream. And even then, the lack of Autobots in the main set leads me to believe that there won't be that heavy of a Decepticon presence in the attendee figures.

    There's only two way's you're going to get an Animated Slipstream figure.

    1. Possible Botcon repaint of either the Voyager or Activater figure.

    or

    2. You kitbash one for yourself/have one kitbashed for you by someone else.

    Other continuity versions of her wouldn't be out of the question for future releases. If she shows up in TFP at some point for example, or if they decide to make her one of the many off-screen movie-verse figures.

    There's a G1 CHMS KO version of Slipstream coming out in the next month or so...

    For the Animated one, Botcon is really your only hope.

    Man, if a BotCon exclusive ends up being the answer, Elias Weskerson is going to have a big reaction.

    Release Voyager Thundercracker first. Then worry about the other clones.

    Really? I didn't know about that, I'll have to pick it up. I don't care a bit about the Animated Character but the color scheme is pretty cool (even if it is based off G2 Ramjet, something else I'm looking forward to getting when the Club releases it!)

    Maybe they'll make a mixed aesthetic Slipstream figure and release it with the new movie. I seem to remember the designers saying they wanted to do more females in an interview.

    To those saying Animated is dead, beyond the fact that your being a buzzkill, no one is asking for animated slipstream, just a slipstream in general.

    Botcon or KO is your only way. As much as I hate admitting to it, Animated is long dead.
