    Couldn't care less about Animated. I will probably get the Breakdown figure though.

    Breakdown's nice but I think I'll wait for a repaint with some kind of sporty/tuner deco, something to make it look more visually interesting.

    That Rollbar repaint bears a striking similarity (alt-mode and color-wise) to a typical Furman's "redshirt" Autobot from Spotlight Hot Rod, Backbeat! :) 

    Breakdown is awesome. Now, we only need (a Classics) Dead End and Motormaster to have all 5 Stunticons... :)

    Well I like the looks of the new scouts exspecialy Breakdown. I wounder what the names of the repaints are the Depthcharge might be called Tidalwave but the Rollbar I am not shure.

    Breakdown/Brakedown being a ferrari homage makes him look more like The Throttlebot Chase or Wildrider to me.

    Jazz in silver seems to me that it's supposed to be a homage to Movie Jazz - just as the Agent Jazz Binaltech was.
    it also matches the super hard to get repaint of the Bumper Battler Ninja Jazz (?) that is also silver.

    The Boat looks nice in Black - very menacing and also quite close to the color simialr boats are painted in real life too.

    Breakdown/Brakedown looks nice if perhaps a little out of style for a Movie line toy seems like a Cybertron Scout/Basic almost like Clocker to me.

    All interesting to me - I'd like to see a few more Animated Repaint sometime - a Voyager Optimus in Nightwatch (Bumper Battler colors) would be nice for example.

    I'd have welcomed Oilslick in Cykill or Prowl in White and Black colors too. Perhaps just random stuff like Waspinator as Buzzsaw too.

    I'd have prefered white & Black (like Energon Checkpoint) or dark Blue for a Bulkhead repaint though either as a SWAT van or Police wagon.

    The way Optimus has roof lights that look like Emergency Sirens (since he's sort of a fire truck) also suggests he might repaint well into other types of vehicle with flashing lights like a recovery truck, or a Police truck.

    It's a shame Hasbro didn't pursuit the idea of making more trailers for the DX mold as they have done just once in the new items... especially as it's canonical for him to use different trailers.

    Thinking on the idea of a Blue Optimus though - perhaps the Cybertron mode one might look good in dark Blue or black.

    I think I'm looking forward to Ratchet the most out of the new batch though. and I hope they have chance to produce Ironhide too... doubly so if it means they also make an Earth Mode one... (regardless of how that might fit or otherwise in the cannon) as a toy collector it's what I'd like in toy terms.

    Fixed!

    Breakdown and the Nemesis Depthcharge look great, glad I waited for to pick up that(DC)mold. It looks so much better with the evil paint scheme!

    Definitely a resemblance! Especially with the inner surface of the wings painted orange. I mean, it doesn't make the color scheme work any BETTER, but there is definitely a resemblance.

    I suspect it's mostly coincidental, but who knows? If this WERE a (strange) homage, though, you'd think they would have at least put some sort of shark-themed graphics on the side of the truck. You know.... "Cybertron Diving Equipment" or "Sparkplug's Old Chum Delivery Service," or something. :p

    Fixed again!

    I don't think the Depthcharge mold could ever be set as a good guy. He would probably look evil in white with red trim too.

    Roll Bar: If he was a repaint or remold of movie one Payload, then yes. But sadly no.

    Jazz: Fck yeah. I'll paint him blue and call him Animated Bluestreak

    Depthcharge: I've been waiting for a Decepticon repaint. So yeah. I just hope they do the same thing to him as they did to Dead End: ya know, give him a bigger toy.

    Bulkhead: NOPE!

    Breakdown: Yesssssssss! But, bring on more pics of Jungle Ironhide, Flareup, Deluxe Rachet and HA Barricade
