    I know that we aren't getting a toy version of those Constructibots from Animated. But after re-watching some episodes mainly containing them, I am really sad about not getting a figure of them! Personally as a back east Boston guy now living on the west coast...I got a kick out of their cat calling, oil swiggin', loud obnoxious personalities. Personally I hated them at the beginning but after not a lot of thought I still dislike Sentinel Prime more.

    That being said...Am I alone here? I know the toys would have probably been difficult to make show accurate but even still, is anyone else saddened by this? I'd love a Mixmaster and Scrapper. Just asking.

    (Oh! Lets say they DID make the figures...how about a Yankees / Red Sox repaint haha??)

    Mix and Scrap would have been a much better 2-pack than Jetfire and Jetstorm. That's weak they were never made.

    I'd have bought them in a heartbeat. They should have done these guys before Hydro Bumblebee, Cyb. Rachet and Wing Prime.

    It would be pretty sweet to get a couple of TF's with plumber cracks. I'd buy

    Agreed. Mixmaster and Scrapper deserve toys. If Wreck-Gar and Wasp-mode Wazzpinator get toys (especialy since "Beast" Waspinator only appeared once), then we SHOULD have gotten the two original Animated Constructicons.

    However, for Jetfire and Jetstorm, they're basicaly the same mold retooled for the other twin, and that allows for more profit on Hasbro's part.

    Another thing is that I'm still trying to figure out how Scraper's TFing scheme works, as I am baffled as to how the shovel bucket goes into his chest (or if the chest scoop is faked, where the real shovel actually goes).

    But in a way to make at least one Animated Constructicon, I've got an idea for Animated Bonecrusher using the Marvel X-Overs Hul Bulldozer mold, complete with exposed buttcrack.

    I was thinking about maybe working on an animated mixmaster using my least favorite character Sentinel Prime's mold and adding on some stuff...take THAT Sentinel!

    The facts presented in this thread depress me.

    It truly is a shame we aren't getting the Constructicons, especially considering the amount of episodes they were involved in, and the fact that Hasbro totally could have given us repaint after unabashed repaint...and we'd probably eat them up!

    It's sad that a lot of Animated characters will never get toys. I'm guessing one of the reasons for the delay and now no Constructicons is that they were adding more as the series went along. An Animated Devastator would have been cool. I could make a nice sized list of characters that should have gotten toys but with Mixmaster and Scrapper appearing so often they should have been made. At least we are getting some of the other characters this late after the series cancellation (assuming they aren't a pain in the ass to track down).

    Sorry to depress! But I am glad to see that there is support out there for the Constructicons! This is really inspiring me to do a Radicon of Mixmaster (Scrapper just seems a little hard right now unless anyones got any ideas...) Right now im thinking of something like Sentinal Prime with Blitzwings legs or something...Ideas are Welcome! But support at least for these characters is always good to!!!

    I absolutely hated the characters as protrayed on the show, but I still would have liked to see figures of them.

    Yea I hated them at first too. Then my dislike for Sentinel proved stronger then my mild distaste for the east coast Constructa-guidos

    Actually, Mix and Scrap are some of my favorite characters. They need toys badly.

    I would have loved them, but they deserved a Voyager class at least. If they had been 2 packed they would have been tiny.

    Also, this may be me fooling myself, but I have not given up hope on seeing more TFA down the road. Im not talking huge amounts, but Ramjet, Autotrooper and easy repaints are too much for Hasbro to pass up.
