The rotor can only shred stuff above your head height.

That should do it.

Oh I get it. The black robot can rhyme all he wants, but when the white robot starts to, everyone freaks out.

Racist punk.

I am white, you know.

And the Blaster toy actually DID something other than take up space on Ultra Magnus's trailer.

The.. hell? I mean, honestly.

Also, Blaster's rhyming was very rare, and super annoying too. (I can't actually think of an episode where he did it throughout. Definately not in the movie, or in Autobop or Make Trax or Key to Vector Sigma...)

It wasn't that Wheelie was an insane rhymer, it's that he was very obviously some idiot suit's idea of what a 'children's connection character' should be. He was a walking disjoint from the rest of the world around him.. the rhyming, the annoying voice, and the very stupid stories centering around him really drove home the point.

F***ing hell. If you didn't know that was sarcasm there is no help for you. I mean damn. I know there is reasons for people to hate him sans rhyming. Personally I hated him for the reasons Vanguard states. (Bumblebee will always be the kid-appeal character for G1. ALWAYS)

Last time I checked Blaster was red, and Wheelie was a sort of orange. Knock off the sarcastic comments and colorful adjectives and do not derail this news thread, this is your final warning.

*ahem* Sorry about that. Won't happen again.

Anyway, I was looking through the list and noticed something neat with Starscream and his repaints, something that completly makes sense in a budgetary way.

Starscream (like most figures) is represented in 2 size classes. Nothing special there, we've seen it before. But this is the first time (that I know of, mind you) where they are splitting individual character repaints that HAVE been in the show into different size classes.

We've seen Starscream in both, Thundercracker as an Activator, and now apparently we get Ramjet as an Activator as well. (Sad thing really. His color scheme was great in-show) And according to Botcon 08 Reports, Skywarp was shown as a Voyager Repaint. (Which brings the question why he, like 25th Hot Shot, weren't shown) That leaves Sunstorm and Nightbird (Not official name. Just the one that makes the most sense to me) toyless.

Like I said, it's much cheaper for them to split the size classes like that. Making repaints of a $9 figure into several others is cheaper then making 6 releases of the same mold in what is allegedly a short line. I do wish they made all the seekers available as a box set in the activator class though...

I hope they'd release the screamer repaints with different faces. Just so they'd fit with the personalities.

The Activator mold might be the only way to get the femme Seeker retool, if they even want to do anything more than a simple repaint. I'm curious as to how the Roadbuster repaint will look...
Got a complaint?

You people disappoint me. You know Hasbro will never release all the seekers in the same size class at retail, I mean c'mon use your heads here, what will they use for next years Botcon if they do that?

The smaller, cheaper toys look to be the most interesting. Yippee for that.

Anybody on here have any of the Activators? I haven't been collecting anything Animated (not too keen on the art style) but I think Activators Bulkhead looks pretty cool. I'm just not sure how much fun can be had out of a TF that transforms by itself with the push of a button.
