    I'm funny when it comes to collecting Transformers. With most other lines (Muppets, World of Springfield, Lord of the Rings, etc.) I try to collect EVERY single figure but with Transformers I'm only interested in characters that are in the show (or now, movie too).

    So I was just wondering if there were any plans to have an Oilslick character in the show. I'd hate to stumble upon him someday and pass on him thinking he's not going to be in the show but then have it turn out that he IS going to be in the show.

    Not that we know of. All that we've heard of the character is that he was originally strictly just a toy, but then was put into the comics. He could very well make an appearance in the show at some point, but it'll probably be a one episode cameo like Swindle, for example.

    They said they'd try to write him into season three.
    Although he's said to make an appearance in the comics, which is in the same continuity as the show.

    According to what Hasbro said at Botcon, they are trying to work Oil Slick into Season 3, but I haven't heard word of an update yet at SDCC to re-confirm.

    But I personally heard them say they'd try at BC this year.

    I had heard he was going to pop up in Season 3, but literally as a cameo with no actual advancement to the plot of the episode.

    All Marty said at SDCC is that he will be in the new Animated Comic that is set in the Animated Continuity. No confirmation of him in the show yet. Still a cool toy though.

    I was thinking the same thing. His bio does state that he and Prowl trained together. I'm willing to bet that he has something to do with why Prowl never finished his cyber-ninja training and ended up on the washout crew with other losers and misfits

    This is why none of the other Transformers have noses...Oilslick hoarded all the nose for himself
