Bumblebee even manages to borrow some attacking strategy from Animated Soundwave. While a carbon based Earth Rabbit gets terrorised by both factions.

The majority of the transcript is taken from the first of Wyatt's panels, which focused solely on the Animated series. While no direct spoilers are released, Wyatt does hint at some things still to come as well as answering questions regarding his preferred characters, and comments on things already seen.

First on the chopping block this year was Derrick J Wyatt, the Art Director and Lead Character Designer for Transformers Animated. Here are just a few things that we got out of it.

- Hasbro to comment on Animated season 4 and it's cancellation "at another convention"

- Derrick really wanted to do a Shattered Glass episode if only to have Fanzone say "This is why I love MACHINES!"

- Grandus will be in an episode, if only for a moment.

- Liked the idea of more Dinobots in later season, but didn't know what to do with "two Snarls"

- I asked if they had ever considered Downshift or any of the Omnibots for the Elite Guard. For some reason Derrick never once considered the Omnibots for Elite Guard members. Oh well, I suppose I can dream.



Next up was to bat was Dan Gilvezan, the unmistakable voice of Generation 1 Bumblebee. Not to mention Hot Spot, Outback, Snapdragon and a slew of others.

If anything was learned at this panel, it's that Dan has a sense of humor a mile wide. He was very comfortable in front of his fans and was very humble and grateful that he has touched so many over the last 25 years. He had many stories to tell, most of which were about Frank Welker screwing with the sound techs and Wally Burr boot camp stories.

He was very interactive with the fans, even getting up from behind the podium to come down and goof around with the fans.

One thing that really stands out to me and clearly the crowd was when Dan said he would love to get together with the remaining cast members and do a 90 minute special. We want that too Dan, we really really want that too!



Last but not least was the Hasbro Product Preview Panel. We were shown the official images of the first wave of figures and they're approximate street dates.

- Movie Preview Figures: May 15th.

- Wave one Scout, Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader are due out May 30th. Right on par with Botcon (and my birthday;))

- Vehicle only Devastator Gift Set will be released in late fall. Will consist of the following.

- Scavenger - Leader Class

- Mixmaster - Ultra

- Longhaul and Scrapper - Voyagers

- Hightower and Rampage - Deluxes.

- Store Exclusives - Released approximately the same week as the movie

- Autobot Whirl and Decepticon Bludgeon (Toys R' Us)

- Skywarp and Ramjet (Walmart)

- Non-movie combiners Superion and Bruticus (Zellers/Target)

- Teletoon Retro to start airing G1 season 1 starting May 18th @ 8:00 PM. Airing first 48 episodes during 24 marathon on June 13th.

Don't forget to watch the second part of Transformer's Animated episode "Human Error", tomorrow at 8:00 AM Eastern on Cartoon Network.

Last week, in Part 1, we saw Christmas with the now teenage Sari, and the Autobots. As evil robot conqueror Soundwave hatches a plan to try to take over Detroit, and put our Autobot saviors out of commission, Sari works on a rescue for the beloved bots.

Be sure to check out tomorrow's episode to see if the Autobots can somehow break Soundwave's siren's spell.

*UPDATE*: YTV will not be airing Transformers Animated at its regular time this weekend, due to the Crunch programming block airing a "Wolverine and the X-Men" marathon.
