Slag is a swear word. Hasbro figured that putting out a toy with a rude name would be a problem. Sadly, this has killed plans for the Bitchmasters line.gantzrunner wrote:They look awesome! On another note: did Hasbro loose the rights to the name Slag or what?!

I generally like Rodimus, but I don't like the looks of this one. To me he looks purple and orange where I'd prefer it a bright red and orange. Also the purple and orange just don't mesh here to me (like they do with Galvatron for example). I also don't like the bow and arrows (especially 2 arrows). When I looked at him, he reminded me of some character of Teen Titans cartoon (Speedy?), which wasn't good.
I guess I can live with Strika as seen in that picture, but generally not anywhere near a character I care about.
Oh well, we'll see what they do with it all. I'm open minded enough and content to be wrong if the cartoon or figures come out and they are mind blowing.

Given that 'Prime' is little more than the title of a relatively high-ranking officer in the Animated universe, he'll probably be Rodimus Prime (and command a small crew, like Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime, and 'Longarm Prime' do/did).

They might take the route they did, the first time they tried the "Universe" line. One of the BW Neo toys, a stegosaurus, was named "Dinobot Striker". So, Striker could be Snarl's new name... although they'd need to be careful not to cause too much confusion between him and Animated Strika.

Nah, I'd bet money she gets a new mould. Based on the fact that we've seen her animation model and it is completely different from Bulkhead, and this show has so far kept the animation pretty close to the toys.
And also Eric Siebenaler (Animated toy designer guy) said recently that they're doing a Bulkhead repaint and it is going to be called xxx Bulkhead (like Atomic Lugnut). So I doubt they'd do a repaint of Bulkhead if they were going to repaint/retool him again into Strika.
That's my theory anyway.

Rodimus looks really good. The Animated style really works with him. First Rodimus in a long time that I might actually like!
