Be Excited, Transformers Animated is Coming! (part 4)

(Voiced by Cree Summer) BLACKARACHNIA is a freak among DECEPTICONS.  Some time back, an encounter with the ALLSPARK caused her to fuse with an organic spider, turning her into a techno-organic hybrid of animal and machine.  She despises this new form, especially on Earth, where her giant spider mode doesn’t exactly allow her to “blend.”  BLACKARACHNIA will do anything to find a cure for her condition and doesn’t care who she has to step on to get it.  Obviously the ALLSPARK and its Autobot protectors will play a big role in her schemes.

Robot Mode Power: BLACKARACHNIA has multiple eyes and eight limbs – two of which are skinny, pincer-like “spider limbs” that jut from her back and arc over her shoulders.  The pincer limbs can strike like scorpions’ tails, stunning prey with her venom, or spraying spider-like webs.  She also has the ability to download and temporarily absorb other Cybertronians’ powers.

Vehicle Mode Appearance: BLACKARACHNIA has no vehicle mode appearance.  Instead she changes into a giant techno-organic black widow spider.

(voiced by Bumper Robinson)  The “Joker” of the DECEPTICONS.  An unpredictable “triple changer” multiple personality bot, driven mad by his constantly shifting appearance.  He has three personalities, one for each face, and his power depends on the face: Icy, cold and calculating; Hothead, short tempered, volatile; and Random, completely bonkers.

Robot Mode Power: BLITZWING is a “triple-changer”—that is, he has three modes (one robot, two vehicles).  Plus he has three faces, each with its own personality.  His power depends on which face he’s showing.  Heat/flame, cold/ice or completely random. 

Vehicle Mode Appearance: Jet and Tank.


(Voiced by Lance Henrickson) A sleek stealth fighter, LOCKDOWN is a skilled hunter and tracker who can blend into nearly any environment.  He lives for the hunt and for the thrill and challenge it provides.  He has no strong allegiance to MEGATRON or the DECEPTICONS, but is more than willing to hire himself out as a Mercenary/Bounty Hunter.

Robot Mode Power: LOCKDOWN is outfitted with all kinds of high-tech weaponry befitting a robot hunter – bolos, snare nets, electronic stun darts (which can prevent mode changes), etc.  He also can go into a Predator-like stealth mode for brief periods.

Vehicle Mode Appearance:  Muscle Car.

Blitzwing speaks with 3 different voices, each with a German accent! :)

Lets just say what if, hpyothetically, we also received an advance copy of the Animated movie introduction. Would people want to hear spoilers???

Lovin' Blackarachnia's profile! It's a very interesting depiction of the Beast Mode process.

Blitzwing's also quite cool. Having multiple personalities is something I never thought of unless it were given to a Duocon.

*raises hand* Yeah Perceptor... I might be interested, tee-hee.

I decided to only comment on this page but I read all 4, I think these characters sound amazing, so comprehensive compared to the ones in the last few series. I hope they don't add a lot of new characters, or if they do then take off some from the show to do it (like BW did). The biggest character problem in the Unicron Trilogy was they kept adding characters and never focusing on one bot at a time. I can't wait to see the movie special.

Also I forget, I know the movie thing airs on the 26th, but when does the main show start? Or do we not yet know?

spoilers please!

Anyone gotz a bio for Soundwave?
Cliffjumper said,  - 2007-12-15 11:37:23
Lockdown's pic is broken. And man, I wanna lay hands on this DVD pair baaaad.
swarlock said,  - 2007-12-15 12:16:19
Blackarchnia looks better hand drawn than as a CGI rendition.
Jason Rhian said,  - 2007-12-15 12:37:21
I was skeptical of this series when I first saw it. Now...I don't know, it keeps sounding better and better.
Perceptor said,  - 2007-12-15 14:17:39
My prediction is that even the most skeptical Transformers fans will be completely won over after watching the intro movie...

Oh and sorry it took me awhile, but the Lockdown link is fixed. (it was some crazy (CMYK) image file type that had to be converted.
Scorpomike said,  - 2007-12-15 21:49:20
Blitzwing looks like War Within Megatron.
Shinobitron said,  - 2007-12-15 22:38:23
I think the new character they are introducing is gonna be sweet. First I think Lance Hendrikson has a very distinct voice that will give the character flavor not to mention the profile of Lockdown almosts fits him. It gonna be neat seeing a TF that doesn't play side and is up for the highest bidder!
All sparkey said,  - 2007-12-16 09:17:13
ok BLACKARACHNIA is cool. I mean a spider!
Wouldntulike2know said,  - 2007-12-16 11:08:24
Ya Know, This is just a spin off to Teen Titans. Like There are five main charaters. Just like in TT. The charaters match up to the ones in TT.

Optimus Prime-Robin
Bumblebee- Beast Boy
Ratchet-a bit of all Robin mostly
She isnt a main character but Arcee is Starfire
KellyGirl27 said,  - 2007-12-16 12:00:12
Lockdown scares me!!! WOW!He sounds like a BIG challeng for the Atuobots.
TransformFan said,  - 2007-12-16 12:07:47
Why does the movie show on the 26? Manny peaple (like me)will be on vacation, or visating a relative. I think they should show the movie a week after all the hoildays because nobody will be runnig around for the hoildays. But im SOOOOOOOO going to video tape the movie!!! I cant wait!
bumblejee909 said,  - 2007-12-16 15:28:14
blitzwing sound pretty kewl with the multiple face changes.

i wonder how the toy is gonna do with thehead?
soundwave kun said,  - 2007-12-16 17:07:16
this series sounds awsome :D. I cant wait till i get the figures, but lets just hope it lasts longer than teen titans (which is also a good series).
GWolf said,  - 2007-12-16 19:45:27
Anything for the other characters? Especially the Dinobots(They seem to be the most prominent extra characters, 3 episodes with a focus on at least one of them, plus I'd be surprised if they didn't show up in a few others, at the very least Megatron Rising)
Shockblast said,  - 2007-12-17 13:52:30
Blitzwing looks awsome. I think his toy will be like Alpha Q somewhat. Press a button and his face changes. It looks like Buzz Lightyear of But, I'm waiting on Animated. Lockdown sounds like Boba Fett or Jango Fett, being that he is a bounty hunter.
Wouldntulike2know said,  - 2007-12-18 17:47:34
U R right Shockblast. Lockdown is based after Boba Fett (I read on Wikipedia)
Human Error said,  - 2007-12-18 19:05:11
You cant believe everything you read on the good old wiki, Wouldntulike2know. It is written by random people you know.
abominus said,  - 2007-12-18 21:57:33
I hope their will be some more characters added to the series like some gastaults and maybe some pretenders of some kind, that would be really cool to see! g one fan!
Wouldntulike2know said,  - 2007-12-26 12:01:56
Wouldntulike2know said,  - 2007-12-26 12:03:31
Oh by the way abominus there are some g1 characters coming later like Jazz, Ironhide, and Ultra Magnus
All sparkey said,  - 2007-12-27 13:29:33
Wouldntulike2know, wikipedia is like a "people" site. people, who don't know there stuff, go in and change it. I like wikipedia, but I don't use it that much.

Cree Summer I've heard her voice before, but can't put my finger on it.
Wouldntulike2know said,  - 2007-12-27 19:16:12
Where did you hear that? Wikipedia? lol

All sparkey said,  - 2008-01-06 09:15:03
wouldntulike2know, wikipedia is a public site. If you visit that site ans get info from it constally you could get the wrong info.
if you type in cree summers in, you get at least 50 characters that her voice is for like rugrat, all grown up and othe shows. The girl that does Sari does Truffles on Chowder. and very different characters. Like you won't reconize her voice at all. I THINK she does Ben on Ben10..... just check for me.... someone.
All sparkey said,  - 2008-01-06 09:18:05
bunnyboo1011, I'll back off. I just hear thing. I'm like the gossip queen of the e-net... JK. Wouldntulike2no is a very funny person to blog with.
