The official website for Sega's Transformers Animated the Chase has gone live. It's a card activated arcade game, but that's not what's important. A couple of new characters are revealed from the cards, and they are familiar faces. While nothing is concrete, it's quite possible that these four can show up in toy form in the near future. Check out Chromia, Super Sonic Blurr, Decepticon Blackarachnia and Midnight Jazz below.

Those all look great, but Stepper err.. Jazz is the only one that will be getting any consideration.

I hate repaints but Chromia looks cool

Blackarachnia appears to be homaging Botcon Arcee.

Cool

Whoa, Chromia looks great! And Blackarachnia is pretty interesting too, but I doubt I'd buy either.

Even though it says Elita-One version?

Arcee repainted as one of the other femmes, makes sense. I wonder if either Hasbro or Takara will do a 'Paradon medic' repaint of the mold some time ;p

Blur just looks like he has a darker, metallic blue. Not a big change there.

Jazz shmazz, that's so TFA Stepper/Ricochete. Though certainly better than the stupid bayformer silver repaint we got. I'm sick and tired of sports car silver just because Bay used it for Jazz, Sideswipe, Sideways, and so on. :p

Blackarachnia in Elita-One colors (though it does look like that weird BotCon Arcee too just due to being pink), not one of the first idea's I'd expect.

That Chromia is awesome. And Blurr looks really cool.

Jazz looks spiffy in dark gray. Pink Arachnia not so much.

Paradron Medic please!

I'd be a little more excited if they decided to do Blackarachnia in her BW colors.

The only one I like is Chromia. Elita one should have been the same mold to complete the trio.

Jazz isn't black enough for me (do not take in the wrong way-- oops MBay already did, that's not what I meant Mike).

The hue of Jazz's paint needs to be more pure black, less grey.

I like the rest, except Blurr is seeing very little change that I could tell.

And honestly, who did not see the recolors of Animated Arcee coming. We know HASBRO loves them (just look at all the E-Arcee repaints), and Takara does not mind them either, ala Superlink Chromia, and Superlink Elita One (from Thunderblast)... Wow I think I was confusing myself there between the two companies, but the point is, when they make a female toy, they repaint it (Movie 1 Arcee v.1).

Am I the only one that thinks that Blurr is totally Sonic the Hedgehog?
Color scheme, SEGA game, Blurr's speed, it can be seen from a mile away.

Chromia and Blackarachnia both look very nice, will probably buy them if they are not exclusives. (They look AWESOME!)

you got a good point on blurr, but if they are gonna call him the "super sonic" edition, he should be gold insted of blue. as far as black arachnia is concerned, i guess thats the closest we will see of her former elita-1 self, though i wish takara would make a new mold of pre-technorganic elita

Maybe calling him Sonic Blurr would be a dead give-away and if he was colored gold it would lost the Sonic reference because there are lots of golden Transformers, usually as Japaneses exclusives.

Of note is that apparently the game also includes cards for characters outside of Animated.

From the Masterpiece Line: Black Convoy, Grimlock, Megatron, Thundercracker, and Skywarp.

Also there's G1 Soundwave in addition to Animated Soundwave.

However these are referred to as Destron, and Cybertron instead of Decepticon and Autobot used for the Animated figures.

Those stat names are confusing... "magazine"? And somehow "bomb" made me think of the old Tom Jones song... :BOOM:

Still, Midnight Jazz sounds by far the coolest repaint name since ages.

Never got the chance to pick up Arcee, and i'm almost glad because I like Chromia's colours so much more!

I have "Midnight Jazz" already.

But its not a transformer.

Its an album of soulful sounds for lovers.

As a result. In my head. This Jazz will be voiced by Barry White.

That Blurr might make quite a passable Animated Devcon...


...not that a Devcon repaint of a Blurr figure is in any way overdue or anything.

I didn't even notice that. He's even got the red shoes. That is totally awsome, and if Hasbro released it(I'm not getting my hope up), I'd probably go for it based on that fact. Not having the mold also helps.

Hasbro probably isn't going to release it, they've already got one in the making called Vortex Blurr.

Which will never come out.

Chromia is definately on my must buy list! And MAYBE Blurr. Jazz looks ok, but whats the point of a black Jazz :shock: (oh.). And Black Arachnia looks like they just dipped the toy in pink paint.

No, I think I can skip the two and get the two pretty easily.
