    I finally got my Voyager Animated Blackout today!!! The store I got it from said it would come since May. So I've saved money for it and called almost everyday, but they say the same thing, "Still has not arrived, call next week". So yesterday I was at the store to ask if it's here yet and they said confirmed by the boss that it will be here this week. I was excited, but they said they have a limited supply and lots of people call everyday, probibly they don't have enough for everyone. So at 4:30 today, I called them to ask if they had a limit and they said it has arrived! I hyperventilated, hung up the phone, grabbed my money I was saving for 5 months then rushed over the store. I told the clerk that I didn't expect it to come today and I was originally going to ask them if there was a limit. the clerk asked how many I want because they only had 5. I said 2 and he accepted. So I bought 2 thanked him then rushed home. So now I've got one to played with and put in my custom Team Chaar and I've got one for to keep in package incase.:D

    I want to play with it, but I'm stuck playing scrabble with my family. As soon as I finish I will play with it will watching scene with Blackout on youtube.

    Animated Blackout just looks so adorable and cuddly, and I'm already tempted just by looking at his pics. Could anyone tell me what is the practical side of his awesomeness? Thanks =)

    The only problem I have with him is the decidions. Both of his arms, I'm trying to decide if in helicopter mode if I should keep the arm parts up or down and in robot mode front or back. Any recomendations?

    I was actually just messing around with mine last night. I broke out HH to see if I cared enough to get that new head. BO was right next to him, so they posed real quick.

    Has been looking for one as well.

    Animated is drying up around these here parts, making finding real gems like this guy next to impossible.

    I hope you really enjoy him, I know I will once I find one!!

    I noticed your location is Oregon. You know Blackout wasn't released in the US? He's a pricey import for us.

    That's cool. I was just saying that in case Rhapsody Prime didn't know. He said "find one," so I didn't know if he knew. That would be a lot of wasted gas for nothing.

    It's nice to have for a sense of completeness.

    As an individual toy, i dislike it intensely. It's like they took Lugnut and turned it into an inferior toy.
