    Now that we know that Shockwave is the only quadruple-changer for Transformers: Animated, will more quadruple-changers be on their way for season 3, or maybe in season 4?

    no idea. The only reason longarm/shockwave is a quad changer is because of his 'spy' shape shifting ability.

    i suppose we could get a sixshot sort of guy, but a err fourshot :) 

    but i guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    I'd personally like to see some other gimmicks revisted first. Like Targetmasters, or even a 'bot who works like a Mega Pretender - small Transformer, big transforming armor.

    But Sixshot would be on my wishlist. Why stop at four when you can add two more?

    Creating more than just one quadruple-changer would kill off the uniqueness of Shockwave/Longarm.

    But I'm keepin' my fingers crossed for Sixshot.. ;)

    Because Hasbro is all about making money by sellin toys and they need the cartoons and shows to help advertise them. So if they can't work a design into toy form then they don't want that character because it would be a waste of advertisement time.

    I still think an Animated Sixshot toy would sell like hotcakes.

    While Sixshot would be awesome if they could swing it, I feel sometimes that folks tend to miss the point when it comes to Animated. Animated is almost like what its placeholder name implied its Transformers: Heroes each one is is like a superhero/villain character. Being a triple changer is Blitzwing's gimmick to introduce Springer for instance would lesson Blitzwing, same goes for instance if they did a Punch/Counter-Punch it would diminish Shockwave.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up for a Sixshot... Isenberg mentioned in the Art & Story podcast interview a couple weeks ago that Animated Blitzwing was going to be Sixshot at one point, but Hasbro said a six-changer would be too expensive to produce.

    Having seen the Animated Blitzwing and Shockwave toys, I'm not entirely surprised. The Animated aesthetic is all about expression and idiosyncracy in bot AND vehicle modes, and trying to incorporate three or more such distinctive modes into a single toy seems to be proving tricky; Shockwave's four modes are more like variants on two general themes, and Blitzwing's three modes, whilst unquestionably distinct, are all pretty flawed. Goodness knows what would happen if they attempted an Animated Sixshot...I can't help but fear that he'd either end up a formless mess, or else he'd be so mind-bogglingly complex and intricate as to give Masterpiece Megatron nightmares. Neither is ideal.

    I'd love a Sixshot, and I'm surprised we've not got him as a character for Season 3...I mean if you're going to put ninjas in the show...why not the Ninja Consultant himself? I'd say it's more a problem of the toy half of the show.

    i would rather see a duocon personally, flywheels or battletrap would be great and they could do so much with the characters personality quirks

    I want to see an Animated Broadside. I think nothing would be better than seeing them pull off an AIRCRAFT CARRIER that transforms in to a SINGLE FIGHTER JET that transforms in to a ROBOT NEARLY THE SAME SIZE AS THE OTHERS.

    Then the bitching about size comparisons can really begin, because there's not nearly enough of that already.

    :lolol 

    I think it's pretty clear we're not going to be getting too many multi-moders in Animated, my guess is that Shockwave is going to be it.

    Well if we go off Kickbacks beliefs (which I hate to admit are likely the case)then including Sixshot in the toon wont be a problem because we probably wont get stuff all new toys for Animated.....
