    Animated Ratbat head Sketch

    Not sure if this counts as news, but Derek J. Wyatt has updated his blog with a rendering of Animated Ratbat's head, the one recently revealed to be Electrostatic Soundwave's new partner.

    A Delightful Tedium

    EDIT: Here's the image:

    I have mixed feelings about ratbat.
    I like his head and wings, but I find that his "feet" are a bit boring.

    I think bats are cute, so a transforming keytar that turns into a bat = win. :D  This may be the first same-character repaint I ever buy.

    They're like that so he can function with Soundwave.

    Now let's see if we can't get more instruments for Soundwave.

    I love the idea they went with for Ratbat, very glad to see him being used.

    That said, I dunno that this confirms him for the show, this could be art for his boxart maybe...?

    Wow, a news credit. I might be getting one of those today, but have they already shown a Lazerbeak sketch or drawing other than in his guitar mode? I feel it odd that they have a drawing of RatBat before Lazerbeak.

    Yeah!!! I just hope he's a talking character, though I suspect he'll be a beastie like in the G1 cartoon. I'll be happy just to have him around.

    Didn't Marty say before that Galvatron, Ratbat and Waspinator were his favourites and he had 2/3 in season 3 somewhere? (Obviously the latter two). Or did I imagine this?

    I was kinda hoping Ratbat may be as an auditor, commander, senator or general accountant evil guy in Animated, whereas now he seems to be a pet. Don't get me wrong, I'm delighted he's in it, no matter what role he fills.

    He's made Soundwave the 2nd ever same character repaint (or slight retool) I am intending to purchase, after the European "Transmetal" Spittor, and Soundwave is for reasons of awesomeness rather than personal reasons.

    I think in general Ratbat is a cool idea to add in the show.

    Looks like a good design! It'll be good to see Ratbat again - though I wonder what the other Cassetticons would look like?

    And maybe this question's already answered, but is Electrostatic Soundwave a homage to Soundblaster?

    w00t! News cred! :D 

    I'm not such a big fan of this Ratbat. The...ratbat...mode doesn't do it for me. I'll be buying Electrostatic Soundwave anyway, because I loves the xB. :\

    It was Galvatron, Ratbat, Waspinator, and Swindle, and he said three of the four would be in Animated.
