S250 of our 2005 Boards has posted some images from the packaging of the upcoming Animated Voyager-class Thundercracker release, courtesy of yizhi of TF08.net. Of note is that the cross-sells on the package that features upcoming Deluxes and Voyagers features a previously unannounced figure: Vortex Blurr. This repaint of the Blurr is included on the cross-sells with Fugitive Waspinator, Toxic Oil Slick, Rodimus Minor, Wingblade Optimus Prime, and Mudbuster Bulkhead. Check out all of the packaging images by clicking on the thumbnail to the left.

I sooo want that Rodimus
Takara_destron
Do want.

*Gets uber joygasm*
Want them all... my dear Rodimus is there...
Oh! And Vortex Blurr was quite a surprise! Looks good too!
Sharktibolt
VORTEX BLURR?!? AWESOME!

And surely a pic of Thundercracker in package indicates his release can't be too far away.
Silent_Magnus
Not all that interested in the redecos, but it's still nice to see new Animted product.

Looks like we'll be getting Wingblade Optimus before the new bumblebee mold, interesting.
Deceptigtar
i already got thundercracker along time ago and almost forgot about this coming out, though i do need one for misb purposes.

sold all my autobots but im a sucker for black repaints and the blurr is NICE!!!! I just wish they would have sprung for a new head mold on wasp because as a bb mold it just doesnt work for me, just looks like bb has halloween costume/colors on or something. Toxic oilslick looks nice too.
MMarker
I want that Blurr.

Bad.
SPLIT LIP
That card art is badass!
CaptainChunk
Huzzah, any new Animated is good news to me. I haven't managed to grab Blurr yet, might just wait for that repaint.
Darkwing48
WingBlade Optimus... Why do they do this to us? I want it, though I have the OG Optimus
Sage o' G-fruit
Anyone have guesses as to the fiction behind Blurr and the new Oil Slick?

Maybe confirmation of Blurr's survival of being cubed?
Robogeek28
Wow, Blurr looks nice!
Orion_Prime48
I want them all. and they cant come out soon enough
Omegatron
I think I want all of them, with the exception of the Oil Slick and Bulkhead repaints. I agree with a new head for Wasp, but better than not getting him at all. Is this the first time a repaint has been done to represent a character in the same series who has his own mold?

vortex blurr and toxic oilslick are pushing my buttons most out of this lot, but thundercracker is tempting me. and wingblade, obviously.
Mechafire

Lance Halberd
Oh, so that's the Oil Slick repaint I found pictures of back in June.

Neat.
Malunis_T
Clearly in Cybertronian, "incinerator" means "vortex." This is my reasoning for this repaint of Blurr.

I really wanna see the bio on this guy, even if it's probably just going to talk about his abilities as a spy. Come on Hasbro, SURPRISE ME
Razorrider
Vortex Blurr..what could have happened if there ever was a Season 4.
felks22us

They never announced Vortex Blur, though, he's now being added onto my to-purchase list! Wingblade Prime looks great too! I'm also looking forward to Rodimus!

You know, considering there probably won't be anymore fiction, this would be be a great!


I also find it strange that these figures are shown on the packaging, when, as far as we knew, the next two scheduled after Electrostatic Soundwave and Freeway Jazz are Arcee and Cybertron Ratchet. I wonder what order the releases will occur in?

I also wonder if Hasbro has any other surprises aside from Blurr planned?
SteamFan42
Not sure how I feel about the Blurr, but some of those others look damn nice.
TheBigMachine
Which Animated figure repaints were never in the cartoon? I pretty sure Vortex Blurr, Rescue Ratchet, Elite Guard BB and Freeway Jazz weren't, but what about the others?

As they said at BotCon, wither Fug. Wasp got a new head, or Ironhide did. Frankly, they made the right decision.

...I disagree. Wasp is a much more important character than Ironhide, and definitely deserved his own head.
Ravenxl7
Cool, I was hoping they would repaint the Blurr mold. I might get this version fo it. I'm also thinking about getting Thundercracker. I don't own the mold yet, and it would be nice to have at least one Animated Seeker.

Did you want to know all of them? Well in addition to the ones you mentioned:

Toxic Oil Slick
Mudbuster Bulkhead
Goldfire Grimlock
Blazing Lockdown
Stealth Lockdown
Atomic Lugnut
Shadow Blade Megatron
Roadbuster Ultra Magnus
the (H)i(GH)con
Ok I'm impressed! I can't wait for these to come out. Not a big fan of Oilslick, but the rest are "buy on site" for sure! Is it odd that I hate the series, yet LOVE the toys?
UltraPrimal
A black Blurr! Oh, that looks sooo sexy. I don't have him yet, but I will definitely get that... if I ever see it! Damn it, Hasbro! Gimme new animated toys now!

Where's my 3rd party Blurr "Cube" dang it?

Pass on the repaint. Waspinator however... that's a buy. And seeing Animated Rodimus makes me giggle.

Wasp already has his own mold in the form of Waspinator.(Which happens to be my favorite "beast" toy from Animated)

I realize that, but he was much more featured as Wasp than Waspinator, so I think if you're going to do it, do it right or not at all.

I might actually mind that Wasp didn't have a new head too, but I personally think Ironhide deserved the head more since we got a Waspinator figure.

Besides, to me this Wasp is from the episode he switches places with Bumblebee, and he just hasn't changed his color yet.

Agreed. I personally don`t think they should have made the figure. It`s just a green Bumblebee. And I think Ironhide will be awesome because Ratchet is awesome. They could even do a silver repaint down the road, maybe for botcon or something?

Vortex Blurr? Awesome sauce!

defo getting fugative wasp but i'll need to trim his horns down and get some plastic cement
SoundFire Prime
A BLACK Blurr repaint?!

I promised myself I would never get any repaints (other than purple Animated Shockwave) but after seeing Electrostatic Soundwave, Freeway Jazz, and now THIS...Hasbro, why must you insist on tormenting me so with such awesomeness?! (Hopefully there's some hint that Blurr survived his cubification involved in this. Oh, and the Fugitive Waspinator Bumblebee repaint was completely unecessary if you want my opinion. I know it was either give Ratchet a new head for the Ironhide retool or Bumblebee a new head for Waspinator, and I'm glad they ended up going with Ironhide, but they didn't have to go ahead and make Waspinator anyway.)

Can't wait for this

Vortex Blurr dosen't look too bad, but I'm really interested in Toxic Oil Slick.
