Botcon has updated their Twitpic feed with the character model for Animated Crumplezone, and yes, he and Ransack are Autobots in the Animated universe. Both appeared in yesterday's TFCC Comic Preview "Moving Violations", which featured Animated TransTech Cheetor.

“As of yet nobody has commented on the botcon exclusive Sandstorm in the corner, in case you don’t see him he’s right on the panel with the close-up of Cheetor, right near the furthest to the right of his three horns”
How can you tell who that is? He looks too weird to be Sandstorm.



He bears about as much resemblance to G1 Drilldasher as he does to Convention Sandtorm so I would definitely have to vote that one 'Inconclusive'.

You can tell this guy wasn't designed by Derrick Wyatt.

It seems to be a little sloppy, I guess, for one of Derrick's designs. It's not bad (though using the less-common Dark Crumplezone scheme was an odd choice), but the lines aren't as clean or nice as most of Derek's other designs have been.

Well according to artist, DJW drew the lines, but the artist inked and colured the sketch. http://msipher.deviantart.com/gallery/4216835#/d3bbuk5

Aren't they all? I assumed the reason Animated uses this 'style' was so little kids with no artistic talent at all could almost accurately draw their favorite characters. I can't think of any other reason why choose such a poor scrappy graphical aesthetic unless the animators themselves lack the skill to do any better too.

Yeah, that's totally the reason.

I asked in the Twitter feed but I don't think anyone noticed...

Why did Crumplezone get his redeco colors and Ransack did not?

Not sure. Artist preference I guess... Since it is Animated, you can pick and choose what you homage.

Artist Greg Sepelak has updated his deviantART account with the character model for Animated Crumplezone's partner in crime Animated Ransack. The original sketch by Derrick J. Wyatt with inks and colors by Greg Sepelak can be viewed here.

If you want to get a closer look at the Transformers Collectors' Club's two page Botcon preview comic, "Moving Violations", featuring Animated TransTech Cheetor you're in luck. FunPubComics has updated their deviantART account with larger unlettered versions of both pages. The first page has been mirrored below, to see page two visit their deviantART account.

Well Ransack and Crumplezone are cool, but obviously the various cameos are what make this comic. I particulary liked the red and orange Cybertronesc Hot Shot, and Huffer being probably my top 3 Animated designs.

This comic brings me a lighter spirit, but also great sorrow. Somehow the new Animated Cheetor is more appealing to me and I might consider buying him. However now I am saddened that they are rubbing Hot Shot in my face and we will probably never get a figure :sad:

I'm a 90's kid so Armada came first before I saw the 86 movie. Hot Shot might be my favorite Transformer, in front of Prime, then Shockwave, then Hot Rod. Sorry guys, Hot Shot just stuck out when I was 7.
