    Apparently Unicron.com received a very special delivery from Hasbro...

    Specifically, the pilot ep. of TF Animated combined with a ton of extras like bios and concept art. There's new pics of Blackarachnia, Blitzwing, Issac Sumdac, and others! Be warned though - some bios, ESPECIALLY Megatron's, are quite spoiler-heavy.

    Check it all out here:

    Credit goes to this thread at the Allspark.

    As an aside, I'll bet TFW's got one of these on the way...

    EDIT: Mods, change the title please - forgot to mention that this was for Animated.

    Megatron's bio bit blew me away. At least it's not another I-SHALL-RULE-THE-UNIVERSE villain!
    That picture of him with the sword is sweet too (if not a little off for lifeforms that use firepower more?)! Hope the toy comes with that...

    Also loving how they're playing out this version of Ratchet. Very interesting indeed.

    Looks like everyone's got a bit 'o' BW in 'em. People have already compared Animated Op to Primal, and now Animated Megs' motivations seem to fall more in line with his BW namesake as well.

    And then there's Blackarachnia, Techno-organic Blackarachnia. She doesn't have the same interests as BW Blacky, but she's definitely got her own goals and agenda seperate from the 'team'.

    And Starscream is ... Starscreamy. :)

    Stuff like this makes me SO happy. I don't think Hasbro have missed a beat with Animated so far.

    Finally, a Megatron with a real backstory! I think, other than Beast Wars / Beast Machines Megatron, he's always been "evil for the sake of being evil".

    At least this one you can sort of see things from his point of view. I hope we get an origin episode which shows how Megatron got the way he is.

    Interesting, so Blitzwing is a nut case. And if you combined Bumblebee and Optimus you get a G1 Hot Rod!

    Sounding good, will be interesting to see how the show pans out. At least it can't be any worse than RID, Armada, Energon or Cybertron. That's not really saying much though.

    Looks cool, I wonder why Blackarachnia can't just CR chamber off her beast mode...

    That's the thing, everything we have seen shows this can't end up any worse than what we have and has so much potential for huge success.

    And because it is 'amarican' storytelling, and a Re-tread series... they can honestly re-tell any story from any continuity they want in this series. Having loose seasonal arcs with indivisual story arcs per episode opposed to the japanese soap opera story arcs I think gives so much potential for great single episodes.

    WOW! Ratchet seems like he's mixed in with some personality of Kup and Maybe Ironhide.

    Man...why do half the pics look like they were drawn with Windows Paintbrush? :puke2: 

    I love the designs and art style, but those pixly, jagged black lines on a few of the pics (Blitzwing is the one that's sticking in my sleep-deprived brain right now) are terrible.

    And Lockdown's pic is brokeded. :cry

    Looks like those pictures were right out of the animation cells/ frames or something.

    They probably didn't downsize the pictures to anti-alias the lines from their animation/ colouring programme. Nothing to worry about since it will all be properly pimped up for proper promotional material. These must have been right out of the animation studios in a rush.
