Nice head

um...just not feeling it

How many MORE random repaints that come out of nowhere are there going to be? I mean, I thought what we heard at Botcon was going to be it for Animated, but so far there's been pictures of an Oil Slick repaint, the voyager Bulkhead repaint, and now this.

Gives me a Star Convoy vibe with that gold star on his chest like that. Wonder if it was ment to be a little tip of the hat to Star Convoy
Looks cool though , i may pick one up if he gets released .

At least one more. Battlefield Bumblebee will be up in a few minutes

What the heck? Is that DestrOptimus Prime?
Nightrain
They're just mocking us at this point.

I am all for new animated toys and repaints but the silver head makes this one looks like a knock off.
Insecticons
This Repaint does not really make sense at all , does it?
But it reminds me of Star Convoy ( Star Convoy (1991) - Cybertron Supreme Commander - www.tfu.info ) , maybe this is the inspiration of this repaint?
grimlock1972
pass nothing special enough to justify it

Well, congrats, Tim - you officially made me give the best WTF expression from seeing this.

I guess I'll be the first to ask this here: Why is his head just one color?

That's obviously what it's supposed to be based off of.

I just... wtf, srsly.

First glance, I was all "Powered Convoy!!! 0.0"
Then I looked at the pics a little closer.
Star Convoy... meh.

"Animated Activators Armor Up Optimus Prime" -

Go Hasbro marketers! No, don't worry about a toy's name length. It can be as long as you want. All 15 syllables.

Bought once I get battlefield bb I will have all activator bbs.

I'm guessing that's part of the "upgrade" that it talks about in his bio.

On another note, everyone recheck the initial link. If you loved Armor Up Optimus Prime, just wait until you see Battlefield Bumblebee!
PrimulArchangel
Ok now the bumblebee is just weird. By the sound of his name i was expecting to see a battle damaged BB but not a silver footed BB lol

Ah. Figures there'd be another one to go with him. You never get just one new figure at a time....

Now how many more unannounced random repaints will there be?

EDIT: The more I look at Battlefield Bumblebee, the more I think I'm getting him.
Monty Prime
This is why repaints can be awesome.

Battlefield Bumblebee looks much more better than his regular Version , i love it!
Blitz.
Star Convoy homage... nice idea but its all too late for me and BB just screams pointless
U.Magnus80
I kinda dig the Star Convoy homage. I haven't picked up any Animated Activator to begin with. Are they even worth it? Only reason I really see to get em is to get the animated seekers that aren't released in a voyager version. Am I wrong?
Malunis_T
I find it hilarious every TFA Bumblebee redeco has always been about him repainting himself. I'm probably not going to get Bumblebee just because I like the original one better, but I am eying the Optimus one... even if it IS weird for him to have a completely silver head. Destro? :O
shibamura_prime
Star Convoy nod makes me happy.
microclone
as much as i love animated toys those two repaints are utterly redundant to mine eyes!
artiepants
are these the dead horse?
G1Wheeljack
Horray, Animated lives on just a bit longer! Also, Star Convoy homage ftw.
puppylove
I am starting to feel like Bart Simpson with the 'I want my elephant!' cry. "Where's my Roddy and Arcee!?" Come on Hasbro... ! Pretty pleeeeaaaase?
Delphan Rane
I'm getting this, and that goes w/o saying of course...however, I think the head could use a little more paint detail.
DWN013
When I saw the name I thought we were going to get the god-ginrai homage armor from the final episodes. Nope.
shroobmaster
Those two are utterly hilarious.

Must-have.

Ditto!
Digilaut
Star Convoy mark on Optimus! Funky!

I don't really understand why they release repaints that hardly deviate from the original though..how many more yellow Bumblebees and red/blue Primes do we need?

At least more three kinds.
SoundMaster
The Optimus looks neat. Might pick it up if it gets released.
Beastbot X
I kinda wish they were more repaint-ish and less variant-ish.

However, that said I have bought every non-Power-Bot Animated toy released, and these will be no exception. Gotta encourage Hasbro to crank out as many of these as they can.
clonemanager
Hasbro hires more kids to coloring rather than designers on R&D ??
Lbsammills51
Not the repaints I was hoping for (Seekers, Seekers), but a nice surprise nonetheless.
Triggerhappy
I just hope that if these come out they come with a refresh of Cliffjumper (gotta catch em all)
Mechafire
What is this I don't even...
MekaGojira3k
Why not do one of the 1000 BB redecoes in the show?

Oh wellz. I kind of like the Prime

There's the Wingblade Optimus Prime coming up. Looks like the only version that will have the armour.

This one is kind of cool, I wondered how Animated Optimus Prime might look as Star Convoy, and now I know.

And knowing is half the battle!
Gingerchris
Is it April 1st already?

No wait - it's Hasbro's random paint daub time again!

Never been one for repaints really but if they're gonna do it can they at least make them considerably more different to their other version(s)?
wasp819
why not redo elite guard bumblebee in activators size, that would look good

This seems like the most obvious idea to me, I mean why make another Bumblebee when there's a dozen characters who look just like him they could make?
Black Oracle
I'm trying to understand the silver head? But the Star Convoy homage mark is cool!
Paxtin
Hey, a slight Star Convoy homage, and Bumblebee with...Some silver on him.

Kinda wish they had put just a little more effort into Prime. Maybe make the visor and the stripes on the helmet silver to homage Star Convoy's silver crest, rather then making the whole head silver. Paint the knees yellow and you'd have something here.

I guess it's the thought that counts, right?
