    I remember hearing that TFA Rodimus and Ironhide are planned to be released this fall as Toys R Us exclusives, but I did not hear anything about Blackout (or the other animated voyagers like Thundercracker, Mudbuster Bulkhead...). Are any others (especially Blackout) going to be available in the US? (sorry if this is common knowledge or has already been covered)

    We don't know.

    EDIT: We have seen official images of Mudbuster and Thundercracker, but none of the other voyagers.

    We shall see?

    maybe, with luck it might see a US release, again its a issue with retailers picking it up, so far we have been lucky TRU are willing to sell the deluxes.

    if not your gonna have to go after the takara version (it doesnt look too different luckily)

    If we don't get it here, Japan is our only hope.

    Well we know Hasbro produced them, (as people have bought them.) and 2 have recently appeared on ebay, Im thinking Hasbro has/is producing them and needs to find a retailer to get them though.

    At this point I think the only retailer that would pick it up is TRU. Both Target and Walmart have clearanced out their animated stocks. If the sale of Animated deluxe exclusives continue to do well, I think TRU would pick up a couple of the voyagers like Blackout and Wingblade Prime as exclusives as well.

    Ebay:
    Preordered BO, too.
    i feel bad that i didn't know BBTS was offering it, so I have Japanese Arcee coming from them, BO coming from Robot Kingdom.

    i kinda hate this piecemeal manner of obtaining the final figs, but it's better than nothing at all.

    I just had to have Diabeetus bot. he's too cool, no?
