    New TF Animated character images - Link now fixed

    http://seibertron.com/energonpub/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=33852

    Someone linked me to this; don't think there's a thread about this yet, but if there is, please lock this.

    It shows us Sentinel Prime and Ultra Magnus's vehicle modes, and what looks like our first images of Swoop and Jazz.

    ... Is it just me or does Jazz's head look a bit like Phil LaMarr's?

    EDIT - s250 uploaded some new pictures at the Allspark version of this thread... this time of Slag and Ultra Magnus's robot mode!

    It's nice to see Sentinel Prime and Ultra Magnus's alt-modes. They look cool imo. It's also nice to see Swoop and Jazz's bot-modes, they also look cool imo. It makes sense for Jazz to resemble Phil LaMarr to a certain extent. After all, that is who's voicing him. Whoever came up with the translation of the rumor as Sentinel Prime's alt-mode bing a Monster Truck was correct. I personally can't wait to see the toy's of these guys (well, at least the toys of the one's that will be getting toys).

    All looks good to me. Those vehicle modes look like they are getting toys.

    Jazz does look like Phil LaMarr's

    I bet 'guest voice' characters, the TF will resemble them. That is a common practice on cartoons. Those are characters I don't expect to see toys of are the guest celeb chars

    Jazz seems to be a member of the Elite Guard, by the way. Check his hood.

    Swoop looks weird. Jazz looks awesome (he has headphones!)! As do SP and UM's vehicle modes. Must buy them all...except Swoop.

    Hot damn, Ultra Magnus looks like love. Very reminiscent of the large Cold War-era ballistic missile trucks. He can deal with things with a bang now.

    Totally feeling Jazz's design. He looks fast now, as he should.

    Swoop is quite interesting. He gives off a huge Beast Machines vibe. In fact his design looks like it may have been inspired by BM Skydive.

    My God in Heaven these are awesome. Toys of any of these will be fantastic. Especially Swoop.

    Oh, and how awesome is Mr. Plow...I mean The Tick...I mean Sentinel Prime? I love the designs for this show.

    Jazz's design looks sweet. The "head phones" make up for the loss of his iconic "cat ears". Swoop has a got a real BM feel going on which adds variety to the designs for the series.

    The Autobot elite guard really look the business. I think I might actually rather watch a series based around them than Animated Prime's motley crew.

    Jazz = Looks great. I hope his toy's a lot better than his movie version's...
    Swoop = Awesome. Very gaunt and lightweight as an avian should be.
    Ultra Magnus as missile truck = YES.
    Sentinel Prime as monster truck = Strange choice...

    Oh man Ultra Magnus' alt mode is incredible! Very excited for his and Sentinel Prime's designs. I hope we see their robot modes soon! Swoop ftw.

    Sentinel inst very practical but I think it goes more for the character portrayed.

    If the Swoop toy is as good as the animation model, (and so far they're incredibly close to each other) I think I've found the first Autobot I plan on getting.


    And note, that despite the description of the Dinobots as a "rogue group", Swoop has an Autobot insignia.

    Nice designs! Swoops definitely my favourite of the three dinobots featured so far. I notice that Jazz's design looks the most "Human in a suit" out of all the designs seen so far, with his noticeable lack of mechanical joints on his waist and legs. I wonder how they will try to emulate that feel on the toy.
