    Ok, so I loved Transwarped but going by the status of all those cameo characters I now understand why we wont be getting toys of any of these designs. Rodimus and his team are essentially "red shirts". Doubt we will see any of them ever again.

    Judging of the way they were used in the show who do yo think really deserves a toy? Yes I want them all too but we know that wont happen. So far I think Strika and Rodimus are the only ones to justify it and that goes along with the rumors weve heard.

    I doubt that was the last we saw of them.

    Yeah, I mean c'mon. None of their defeats were absolute.

    Transfans get too worked up and are waaaay too literal.

    Both teams were full of characters that obviously had some time put into their designs/powers etc.

    Plus two of them are already rumored as getting toys.

    Blackout is confirmed as a toy due to his TFCC listing for pre-order, and Rodimus is said to be the last new deluxe toy for 2009.

    I think we'll see a decent amount of them in the future. Not nearly as much as the main team, but I doubt that was most of their screen time. I think we'll at least see more of Strika's team. That last little conversation with Megs points to her team showing up some more, imo. That and we need to see her and Lugnut, if only to see how she acts when he goes into "ALL HAIL MEGATRON!!!"-mode.

    Both Blackout and Rodimus Prime have been confirmed to be getting toys at some point.

    Really? cool, though I hope there are more new molds than the one's we currently know about. Now that we know we're getting Rodimus Prime, Blackout, and Cybertronian Ratchet (with the possibility of an Ironhide), hints at an Animated Wheeljack, and prospects for more toys throughout the rest of the year, I really hope Spittor gets a toy. Voyager versions of Ultra Magnus and Earth-mode Megs would be ubber awesome, but extremely unlikely. We'll of course get a decent amount of repaints, but at least one more new mold would be nice.

    Y'know what would be cool? If like, every episode, we got a glimpse of what's going on at the asteroid.

    I hope we do see more of both teams...and an episode that is all about Rodimus' team.

    Strika's team looks like they could some major damage on Earth. More than Megs crew. I hope those 5 go at with Prime and crew.

    Transwarped was one heck of a ride. Seeing Stika's team in action very bad ass. Wow Blackout is a monster, but what kinda looked insane but interesting was I think Spittor. He's like this combination of frog/toad, an octopus, and those Imperial Walkers from Star Wars. But still need to see more episodes. So thats what I have to say.

    I hope Red Alert isnt dead. Spittor sort of turned her into a bomb... But she is the only one I could see not returning for that reason.

    To be honest, it is unclear precisely what Spittor's "bomb goo coating" does to the one coated with it. Probably not very pleasant, and with her the medic and all, she'll probably have to be ferried back to the nearest command post to be looked over by another medic.

    But this squares up nicely with what we heard previously about these guys basically being a cameo battle and little more. Though it was awesome to see them all in action, kind of like seeing the X-Factor team cameo in the old X-Men cartoon.

    Whether they'll come back or not, I totally predicted months ago that this would be the height of their role in the premiere.

    Hot Shot's flame blasters were awesome. I liked what we did see of the small team, and I bet we'll probably see a little more of them as we continue to see the story unfolding on Cybertron.

    I doubt Red Alert died from that, it was just robo-savliva (like Grimlock when he spat out Powell). And the cloud of dust occured when she fell into Brawn and Ironhide.

    Except for the fact that Spittor's saliva is explosive on impact...

    Though I do agree that she and the others probably did survive.

    I really would like figures of Ironhide, Brawn, Hot Shot, Rodimus, and Blackout. The others... I'm not quite sure if I want to get their toys or not.
