    We'll find out when we find out. Don't ask us, because we don't know.

    I wouldn't count on one being released. The Activator will have to do.

    *sigh* Sometimes I feel like it was just me and four other people who paid attention to all the news coming out of the conventions.

    Personaly I'd say the best chance of getting a release date is at comic con, so just wait till then since it's not that far away.

    this.... seriously nobody pays attention to botcon coverage......ugh....anyways, i look forward to the release of thundercracker, it will be the first time i have all three major seekers from one series (i managed to snag skywarp when my local wal-mart got him a while back along with shockwave, but what is funny my wal-mart randomly pulled out a skywarp and two shockwaves out of the blue when the movie came out). and i managed to get a sunstorm for $18 recently (while hunting for superion) so i need thundercracker to complete the set

    Well. That bites. I'd rather have Ramjet The compulsive liar. Dude had lots of screen time in season 3.

    Off the top of my head. I think thundercracker is the arrogant one. Its far from my favorite in the animated universe. But I guess Aaron wanted the classic three voyager seekers than the fruity extra personalitys.

    yea, but it seems hasbro is trying to make up for the seeker fiasco with botcon by releasing the three main seekers at retail....that is why we are getting thundercracker

    Perhaps Ramjet, Dirge, Thrust and/or Slipstream could end up convention exclusives someday? I hope so, though I'm happy we're getting Thundercracker at least.

    Fucking hate convention exclusives, and I'd HATE having animated figures as any.

    Yes! Looks like I will be hunting down an animated Skywarp - especially since there's news of Thundercracker! :)

    You won't regret it. I dig that they gave animated skywarp a ton of silver and black. Admittedly I only saw them at retail scaresly in november from walmart. And then When target restocked it was the Optimus Prime /Grimlock/lugnut or the atomic lugnut/wreckgar set.

    So my point being it just looked like in my area retailers were weary to order that skywarp/shockwave assortment.

    Oh I agree, I'd rather they come out as general releases or even store exclusives that aren't that hard to find. With Thundercracker being the only one announced though, I'd wondered if convention exclusives were the only way they'd happen.

    There's been news sightings of shock and sky recently at Walmart and TRU. I saw them at my TRU. Clearing out the warehouse maybe. HTS still also has skywarp so if you're buying other stuff throw him in and get the free shipping.

    Better a convention exclusive then never getting em.

    I just happened upon a skywarp after the first midnight showing of rotf. I had planned to get Megs, but when I saw Skywarp I figured I better nab him or I'll never see it at retail ever again.

    And I do hope we get news on the rest of the animated figures at SDCC.
