Transformers Animated Figures at Toyfair 2008

Toy Fair 2008, organized by the Toy Industry Association is held in New York from February 17-20. No Gundam, sorry ^^; but plenty of lovely upcoming Transformers figures are on display.

We'll look at Transformers Animated figures today, and Transformers Classics 2.0 tomorrow.

Roll-out Command Optimus Prime, with some automatic transformation gimmick! Nice~ totally beats the auto-morph function of Leader Class Movie Version.

Ratchet has a lot of melee weapons.

The return of Jazz!
On the right is Leader Class Bulkhead. What's with his head?

Bulkhead's vehicle form, with plenty of added weapons.

Megatron Earth Form, in Leader Class as well.

Megatron Earth Form's vehicle mode - I can only see where he gets his sword from ^^;

This is Black Arachnia, so far the only non-vehicle and female character in Transformers Animated.

New character: Oil Slick, who looks like Ghost Rider's bike XD

This is Oil Slick in his robot form - uses a chain as well. Not sure about you, but I'm definitely calling him Ghost Rider from now on =D

TF_Animated_Soundwave_03 TF_Animated_Soundwave_02_s
Rock n' Roll Soundwave with guitar, ^^ and he seems to put on quite a bit of weight since the last time I saw him. XD It's really nice to see that the designer maintain the 'cassette player' on his chest though.

Most images from Toysdaily. Others are gathered from various forums.

More images can be found on TFW2005, including many other Autobots and Decepticons characters mentioned many moons ago.
