    I have read several people commenting that the Blitzwing toy for the new Animated series looks awesome but have we seen anything besides a drawing of it? Did I miss something? I really do hope it looks like that picture so there is at least one animated toy I want to buy. Also since they are releasing an Animated Blitzwing are we getting never getting one for classics or just not now?

    We havn't seen the actual toy yet. And anything in Animated will most likely not be in classics.

    I think they said at botcon that blitzwing is being designed in a way that he'll fit in with classics.

    From what I gather, every triple changer will be made BETWEEN Classics and Animated. Some characters in Animated like Ultra Magnus and Blitzwing for example are soo heavily G1 influenced, that there was no need to make a classics. From the drawing of Blitzwing, he doesnt share the Animated asthestic of over sized proportions like Jay Leno chins and tiny size zero waist. He looks like a nice blend of both so he can go back in forth.

    Blitzwing is one awesome looking Decepticon either way. If he looks as good as the model sheet shown he'll rock hard. He's one design I'm looking forward to from that series, him and Starscream.

    It look really cool. I just hope they don't "cartoonise" more the character.

    I hope you are right. It will be awesome if he fits in with the Classics line.

    I'm guessing that this whole "if its in Animated, it won't be in Classics" idea is less an actual rule or law or whatever, and more their way of saying they don't want to do 2 very similar designs for a character if they can avoid it. I'm basing this on the fact that at the same panel where they said it, they mentioned several contradicting characters as being "likely" for Classics (Prowl, Jazz, possibly Arcee and Ratchet as an Ironhide re-deco).
    Characters like Optimus, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are probably a lot of the motivation behind it, as in addition to being major characters in the toon, they've already been done (twice even) in Classics. I really don't blame them for not wanting to do those guys.
    Blitzwing, I'm guessing, they just don't want to go to the trouble of engineering two very, VERY similar triple-changing figures of the same character at the same time.
    Chances are, if it has a different enough design, is an easy repaint/remold, or enough time has passed since the figure from the cartoon was available, then it could still be considered for Classics. I'm not saying you should bank on getting another Blitzwing or anything; just that its not totally impossible (and it wouldn't be like a total breakdown of the laws of the universe if it happened).

    Yeah, I took the "If it's animated it won't be in Classics" as more of a guideline then a rule. It can be broken at any time if they want to.
