    My Animated Blackout came from Amazon Japan today and was well worth the wait - thumbs up. As others have posted photos of this guy I figured I'd throw up a translation of his bio and TecSpec. Nothing earth-shattering but pretty neat, nonetheless. I massaged the bio translation only slightly to improve readability, and the stats data are verbatim, aside from changing TakTom's mistaken usage of "heat" to the more accurate "firepower."

    Decepticon Airborne Soldier: Blackout

    "Blackout is the biggest of all soldiers in the Decepticon army. His mission is of critical importance. First, he’ll secretly infiltrate a target planet. After the opponent’s communications capabilities have been paralyzed and the enemy is in chaos, a full-blown invasion will begin. Up against him, mechanical bodies are nothing more than a burden!"

    TecSpec Total: 56
    Strength: 8
    Intellect: 6
    Speed: 8
    Durability: 7
    Position: 7
    Courage: 5
    Firepower: 9
    Skill: 6


    His bio is clearly in line with his debut from the first live action film while staying neatly in line with his Animated debut in TFA Season Three. Kind of a digital harbinger of doom. (Mwahahas not included.)

    Yeah, same here. So, did this guy 'just' get released in Japan, or has he been available for a while now?

    You can try Kapow Toys, that's where I've preordered mine from (and greatly anticipating the release, he'll be a nice little early birthday gift to myself)

    I love how they took a movie character and cast him in the animated style. It is just full of awesomeness. I have to get my hands on one.
