Once again Derrick J Wyatt's Twitter reveals a new character design. This time it's a fairly obscure character unless you enjoy your Japanese-only Beast Wars, Longrack. Much like Cheetor and Depth Charge he has a new design for Animated which takes elements from both his original Beast Wars figure and his Cybertron repaint.

More of Longrack will no doubt be seen in the Transformers Club Comics.

Woah I just put his cybertron figure on my self. :lol: It's funny how different and alike they are, I like the somewhat unique design though.

Unless he's in flashbacks only. Or unless the Stunti-con Job is a prequel or midquel.

"The Stunti-Con Job" is described as being "season 3.5". It's gonna take place post-season 3 with Optimus' team back on Cybertron.

Slightly off-topic, but does anyone know what Derrick calls that recolored Jetfire with the flaming green hand? You can see it in the next photo preview.

Might be Shattered Glass Jetfire from the unproduced Shattered Glass Animated world that we would have seen in season 4. ;)

Wouldn't it be great if all these new character designs were put out before Animated's cancellation? So we could see them in action? I'm no Animated fan, but some of these new characters look kind of interesting to me.

We will be seeing them. In the BotCon comic "The Stunti-Con Job".

Though, I don't think it'd be quite right to see all of them "in action", considering how a lot of these characters are mere civilians and not soldiers. Not every Animated character is a warrior. A good majority of the Animated Autobots are just innocent bystanders with ordinary non-war-related careers. Even some Decepticons bear this description as well (i.e. - Animated Sky-Byte is a Decepticon poet).

By "in-action", I kind of meant just BEING animated on television.

No, he's based off of this guy:

With some elements of this guy thrown into the mix:

Though, he originally looked like this in the Transformers Animated: AllSpark Almanac II book:

I was just making a joke buddy but thanks for the info. He looks a lot better now than he did in the Allspark Almanac.

Any time. ;)

Yeah, I'm guessing this new design is either a retcon or a new body upgrade of some sort.

That would be really cool. A powered up mode perhaps?

Or, maybe he took so much damage during the war that he had to get a full makeover in the rebuilding process. After all, his Omega Sentinel partner, Gamma Supreme, died during the Battle for Iacon. I can imagine Longrack Major coming out of it with his own injuries as well. ;)
