I atteded Cartoon Networks Panel at this years Botcon and they had a lot of good Q&A that sheds a lot of light on certain issues. I took notes on the answers, they don't have any particular order I just wrote them down as they were given.

Transformers Animated Panel:

More Deceptions for Season 2.

Swindle, Ratbat, Galvatron and Waspinator: 3 of the 4 will be in Animated.

Why Animated style? Working with Cartoon Network usually means animated work. Wanted to get back with the roots of drawing Transformers.

Animated done in a widescreen format, but clipped for standard.

Looking Forward. More obscure characters, more of Cybertron.

Ad-Lib is a big part to story dialogue.

Last Scene in Season 2 finale is completely ad-lib.

Allspark to stay mysterious.

Ultra Magnus figure exactly like he is on the show, completely tricked out. Expect each wave of Animated to be better than the last.

Oil Slick – Not a cartoon character, toy only but will probably be in around comic #3. MAY make it into later seasons.

Exec Producer decided on female human lead character decision. Tried really hard to make her a fun and different character, but not annoying like previous human characters in past cities. Detroit is a diverse city, one reason why the show takes place there. Cast and crew of Animated is also from diverse backgrounds.

Theories about who or what Sari is on the internet. Some have come close, many however are WAY OFF. But none are exactly right to who or what she is.

Season 3 – Nothing definitive, but looking like a pretty good possibility.

Season 1 ratings – “Doing very well”

Arcee second appearance. Nothing for Season 2, but would like to bring back in the future.

Omega Supreme: Can not confirm nor deny e will be in series.

Waspinator: Would not be voiced by Scott Mcneal.

Sentinel Prime was originally going to be Rodimus with the attitude that Sentinel Prime currently has. Hasbro did not want Rodimus to have that attitude, so they changed Rodimus to Sentinel Prime.

Combiners not likely. Though names from Combiner members may be used. Lots of talk about wanting Combiners, but not likely.

Hasbro working really well with Aniamted team.

Soundwave being a van. Best vehicle to have the same shape, likeness to a cassette player. Big debate over what his Alt should be, but they knew they wanted to have Soundwave.

Bringing Primal back, has been talked about but nothing solid. If he were to show up it would be a completely new character.

The Arc is not the Arc, it’s a repair vessel.

Unicron is a no.

Big plans for Soundwave, look forward to 3rd season.

New images of Transformers Animated Blitzwing have been posted on ACToys.net. The pictures seem to show Blitzwing properly transformed. Plus there are pictures available of his tank mode! Blitzwing always appears to be Voyager-sized when compared to the figures in the background of these photos but as we've seen with Lockdown it's entirely possible that he could be a deluxe figure as well.

While the Official Release Date for the Transformers: Animated figures remains set as June 2008 (or later) across the globe, it seems that the Canadians may be able to nab a few Animated figures earlier than expected.

YTV has updated it's Transformers Animated Episode Guide to show that this Saturday they will be airing Episode 18 - Return of the Headmaster. Here is the episode synopsis:

Optimus Prime is forced to team up with his rival Sentinel Prime after Sentinel has a humiliating - & potentially fatal - encounter with the Headmaster.

This is great news for Canadians. However Cartoon Network won't be airing this episode until April 26th. Will this mean that Cartoon Network will fall behind in episodes? Will this be a repeating trend?

Interested or just couldn't care less? Feel free to discuss the topic right here on Seibertron.com

Our friends in Ontario seem to be as lucky as our friends in the Cincinatti, OH area...

According to member Magnimus:

"Following a post made by RandomFerret at TFworld2005 about TF Animated deluxes spotted at an Ontario, Canada Wal-Mart, I followed up on the posting and went to that location, the Eastgate Mall in Hamilton, Ontario. Lo and behold, I too found the first wave of deluxe figures (Bumblebee, Lockdown, Prowl, and Cybertron Optimus) for sale on the pegs. I bought them.

Here's a picture of my receipt (personal info removed) and a picture of my haul. More pictures forthcoming as I open up these badboys."





So Canadian toy hunting transfans, you may want to take a trip to your local Walmart, especially if you live near Hamilton, Ontario!

And the rest of us will wait impatiently and jealously as you get yours first! Congratulations! You can view the Seibertron galleries of the first few waves of Transformers Animated figures here to get yourself motivated!
