    Only the deaths from Season 1 as near as I can tell. It's lacking my personal favourite, when Dinobot sticks his head in Rampage's cannon.

    Animated.

    It's supposedly Jetstorm and Jetfire who are brothers. The coloring and details on their arms in robot mode clearly indicate some kinda fire/ice motif going on.

    They also seem to be cyber-ninjas or cyber-ninjas-in-training according to the comic that comes along with them.

    Also, every time I walk by my Soundwave rocking the fuck out on Laserbeak on my desk at my job, I always take note of how goddamned awesome he is.

    I can't. The guy has a distinctive voice and it worked well with the character.

    As awesome as the toys for this show have been, I've been able to resist buying them thus far.

    But I may have to get that combiner on the page 98, and Soundwave.

    Soundwave is a damn awesome toy. And he's really solid and sturdy in vehicle mode. At a quick glance, you wouldn't even know it's a transforming toy. The undercarriage doesn't even indicate it.

    Geek posted Shockwave's vehicle mode and (a mistransformed) Longarm Prime's robot mode, because he is an utter failure.


    In the show Shockwave is undercover in the Autobot Elite Guard as Longarm Prime, and the toy will reflect this with two vehicle modes (tank for Shockwave, crane for LP) and a different robot mode for each persona.

    Trust me, the toy looks bad ass.

    Dunno. Sounds like he's channeling Bruce Campbell at times. He's got quite a few video reviews up on Youtube for Transformers, like this one for Animated Ultra Magnus.

    As well as these two for the Shattered Glass figures from Botcon.

    Say what you will about the character designs in Animated, they translate really well to toys.

    It's almost like they designed the toys first and went backwards to design the characters.

    I'm really looking forward to Longarm Prime now. Before it was Ultra Magnus but his shoulders look really weird to me for some reason.

    did not disappoint. and there were no sari spoilers, which is the only thing I don't really want spoiled, i guess.

    my only complaint about the show is that the intro has sari in a jetpack, something I've never seen in the show itself. so i keep waiting, thinking "oh this will be the one that introduces her jetpa... no wait nevermind."

    i gave up on the intro being relevent to the actual show by the end of season 1 :D

    Yeah, the transforming tricycle/jetpack concept got scrapped fairly late in the process and still made it into a few promo stills and the intro. I do want to see it in action, even as a throwaway gag.

    So the Canadian Tire I work at is getting their shipments of christmas toys in, and we have some Animated toys. We have Megatron and Bulkhead. They both have buttons that you press and they say stuff, Megatron says awesome stuff like "CRUSH THE AUTOBOTS" and "Where is the Allspark?" and some maniacal laugh.

    I really wanna buy him, but I know my parents would just look at me with disappointment, and I know I'd play with it for like, a day. But holy balls he looks awesome.
