Thanks to Griffin of the OTCA Boards, for his write up of two Australian meetups with Transformers Animated Designer Eric Seibenaler, comes plenty of information regarding the Transformers Animated toys, past present and future.

The two meetings (held in Melbourne and Sydney) took place after Eric participated in an Australian Animated competition. He took time out from his busy schedule to talk Transformers with Australian Fans.

Some of the tidbits of information Eric divulged to the Aussie fans included:
- Eric designed all the Transformers Animated figures, not just Oilslick. His first figure was Armada Laserbeak, who Eric was re-united with thanks to Griffin.
- Eric is working on two size classes of figures for the upcoming Movie line.
- A New Animated Bumblebee figure is on it's way, it will be smaller and include an extra weapon of sorts
- A New Bulkhead repaint is also on it's way, and like Atomic Lugnut (which Eric named) it will be a repaint that retains the Bulkhead name.
- Oil Slick was meant to contain slime or Water in his helmet and second weapon, but due to safety concerns, it was nixed.
- New Deluxe Animated Arcee will not be entirely Pink
- The UK version of Animated Sideswipe was created without the knowledge or approval of Hasbro, and when found out, they were made to change the name.

For further details about the meetups, and more tidbits of information and photos of Eric doing his thing, please check out Griffin's thread at OTCA.

Lead Designer for the Transformers Animated Series Derrick Wyatt has continued replying to posts on his blog A Delightful Tedium.

Continuing on from his post concerning the Concept Art for Prowl, Wyatt has posted that thanks to the involvement of the Transformers Animated production team across the various Transformers Animated Mediums, that Transformers Animated can be deemed to belong to the one Singular Universe.

We really consider Eric to be part of the show's creative team anyway. I'm sure it is hard for Hasbro to coordinate everything. Since Marty Isenberg actually wrote the Transformers Animated: The Arrival comic for IDW himself, we consider that part of the show continuity. I got to do some designs for the IDW comic as well. Marty also was involved with the story for the Nintendo DS game. Having the show creators involved in these types of projects really helps them feel more like they are all part of the same universe.

Also mentioned in his post are that Wyatt loved the concepts for Animated Oil Slick (created by Hasbro's Eric Siebenaler) right from the get go, and that there are:

absolutely TONS of G1 concepts that are practically begging to be in Animated. Maybe some of them will get to.

The shattering Grimlock through the cover was a favorite of fans, but not used when the TF Spotlight Grimlock printing came about. (Click the link to see the cover)

They found a place for it as the cover for this collection set to come out in mid-September.
