    Just an Activator, but I don't think we've heard about him yet:

    TF ANIMATED ACTIVATORS WAVE 3
    The newest announced wave of Activators is to include Optimus Prime,
    Lockdown and Ratchet, joined by newcomers Patrol Bumblebee and
    Thundercracker. We don't have any pics of the two new figures, but these
    figures appear to be cartoon-accurate toys with easier transformations.

    Hopefully that includes a Voyager Repaint of him as well since Skywarp was already confirmed.

    Yeah, I'd prefer a Voyager, but that's probably not realistic considering the size of the figure.

    My voyager Starscream looks like Thundercracker enough.

    The Activators is the best venue for the SS repaints as they'll cost significantly less than $20 a pop.

    Can't wait to see what TC looks like as SS is already quite Thundercrackery.

    Interesting. The only version of the Starscream molds I plan on getting is the Voyager repaint as Skywarp. If we get the Ramjet and Sunstorm colored one's in either one of the molds, I might get them too depending on which mold they are, how good they look, and how easy they are to get. I personally think that the Voyager Starscream mold would look good in the Ramjet colors. A repaint of the Voyager mold into the more G1-ish looking color scheme would be nice, but I'm not 100% sure I would buy it if and when they made it.

    As expected, they're going to spill repaint goodness all over OTHER SS toys.

    Now pleeeaaaaaaaaase where's my Ramjet?

    Nah Animated Thundercracker is just a way more blue Starscream with purple strips and other variations.

    Okay, THIS is going to make me buy all the Activators. But at Scout-price, that's cheap and the quick-change transformation, makes it kinda a must-buy for me.

    Honestly, I'll be happy if they just do a Skywarp Activator at some point.

    Have you seen these Activators? We're not talking about FABs here! The sculpting on these little guys is unreal. Act.SS is just as toon-accurate, if not more so, than the Voyager mold version.

    I'm glad this section of the Animated line is going to get more exposure if Hasbro uses it for the seekers and other cool repaints.

    People will disagree with me on this, but I personally think that it's less accurate than the Voyager. The only thing more accurate about it are his null ray's, but that's just a small detail to it. The only way I can see myself buying any of the Activators, is if we get a Grimlock and a Lugnut out of them. I personally don't like they way they look, and the auto-transform gimmick doesn't interest me one bit.

    I just don't understand why it's so hard for Hasbro to want to release all of the seekers in one toyline in the same size class so they match. It's always either mismatched, or one of them is a super rare repaint.

    Maybe it's because this time they have 6 Starscreams to release and people wouldn't buy the same Voyager mold 6 times?

    Sure there's nerds out there crazy enough to do that but mostly don't, doing something like 3 FOR VOYAGER 3 FOR ACTIVATORS is just logical.
