    I didn't see this anywhere else so I'd thought I should post it. I received my Animated Ironhide today and found that there were three new Animated TFs, although repaints, displayed on the back. The first one we already saw, Fugitive Waspinator. The other two we haven't, Mercenary Swindle and Vortex Blurr. So have a look and discuss what you think.

    Yeah, and they were also in the Allspark Almanac two, on the "pending release" pages.

    *Sees Mercenary Swindle*

    Whoa, I've never seen nor heard about that repaint. That looks incredibly awesome!

    I sure hope these guys will be released.


    Sorry, had to say it.

    Old news. I know it's not their intention but it really feels like Hasbro are teasing us with these!

    Mmm... that Swindle looks awesome. Reminds me of Scourge.

    Fugitive Waspinator is something I'd like to see released. The other two, meh, not big on repaints of the same character with the same mold.

    I think with those colours it's meant to be a reference to RiD Rollbar. It's more obvious in the Allspark Almanac, since here the green is coming out very dark, almost black.

    Nice colours either way. Though I agree, it seems less and less likely over time we will see these, though to Hasbro's credit not for lack of them trying I'm sure.

    That Wasp is such a waste. A new head sculpt and it would be perfect.

    that's what the radicons are for lol, if that gets released, you can almost guarantee there will be a casted/painted head available for purchase

    They aren't going to repaint that Blurr figure into Drift? Darn.

    I'm only really interested in Waspinator. The two character repaints are an easy pass.

    According to Hasbro back when they first displayed these guys, they only had enough budget for one new headsculpt, and it went to Ironhide.

    I won't hold my breath waiting for these to be released. That said, I would throw down money for Wasp so fast it would break the sound barrier.

    It was either a new head for wasp, or a new head for Ironhide.

    I think they made the right choice.
