    Just got the TF Collector's Club magazine and the pre-order slip has mentions of some previously unheard-of Animated toys:

    Deluxe: Ratchet (a new Ratchet? Doesn't say anything else) and "Freeway Jazz".

    Voyager: Blackout (!) and "Wingblade Optimus Prime".

    Looking forward to Blackout!

    The pessimist in me says that Wingblade Optimus Prime is probably just a straight repaint of the previous Voyager Prime. When you attach the axe to his back it could conceivably be called a "wingblade", lol.

    Well, hopefully these don't get cancelled or delayed. :p 

    The optimist in me says great... the pessimist in me says that they probably won't be out because of Animated's end date.

    Speaking of Animated's end date... Veloxiraptor, what are the dates on those preorders? Are they before the end date or after? If they're after I wouldn't expect to see these anytime soon... not in Animated packaging anyways.

    Another strange thing is that Soundwave, Arcee, Goldfire Grimlock, and Hydrodive BB are all listed as being in Wave 3, but all four of these new toys are listed under Wave 3 as well. Not sure how that's gonna pan out...

    Deadline for these preorders is May 4th.

    Arcee, etc. aren't under that deadline. They've been moved into the "in stock" list, which of course isn't accurate.

    So are they all lited for March as well? Or is there another date on these things?

    Edit: Just saw your post above this one thanks! :thumb  Strange that Arcee and them are listed as instock when that's totally incorrect. Makes me wonder if they still haven't gotten a clue that things are obviously being rearranged when it comes to this line. I'm thinking that IF we see these figures it will be under the Universe banner... but as long as I get an Animated Blackout I'll be happy...

    Yeah, be nice if they announced a Strika figure... though, again, I wouldn't hold out hope for seeing any announced figures anytime soon. Not with Animated's end date and RotF taking center stage. I'm really hoping that Hasbro has something to say about the future of any planned Animated figures at Botcon.

    Ratchet could either be a Ratchet repaint or Ironhide, since he could easily be done from Ratchet's mould.

    Freeway Jazz is clearly going to be a repaint.

    Blackout. Nuff said.


    'Wingblade Optimus Prime' could anything. Have to wait and see.

    No matter what happens, Blackout makes this topic :bay

    Yeah, just received my order form, too. I think these are printed out, like, a month ago, so it would make sense why they say the Animated waves of Golfire Grimlock, Arcee, and the like are "in stock".

    I'm thinking Ratchet is a Cybertronian version of him. That way we could/could have gotten a repaint of him as Ironhide.
