The Transformers Collectors Club magazine reveals info on the new TFA season 3 characters!

Major news regarding the third season of Transformers Animated! Months ago, we received a list of several new characters that are supposed to make an appearance in Transformers Animated season 3. Following that, we discovered some concept art of a good amount of those same characters, as well as some official fully colored images of two of them.

Now, the Transformers Collectors Club will be doing something interesting with their magazine. Starting with issue 24, G1 styled tech spec cards will be featured for Transformers Animated characters. They will start off with TEN bios in issue 24, , including those new ones coming in season three, and then continue through 2009 with two bios per issue, making a totel of 22! They've already revealed Ironhide's bio as a sneek peak.

But what's even more exciting is what Defensis Prime of The Allspark forums has posted: info from issue 24 regarding the bios of the new season 3 characters! While this info is brief, it does give us the characters' functions and some hints as to what Rodimus Prime, Ironhide, Red Alert, Hot Shot, Brawn, Strika, Cyclonus, Blackout, Spittor, and Oil Slick will be like. All of these characters (sans Ironhide) are nine-elevenths of that list, and six of them had their concept art shown.

He also mentions that the torso unit of the club combiner (consisting of Skyfall, Landquake, Breakaway, and Topspin) is named "Heatwave". Now we just need to know the name of the combiner/"gestalt" himself.

Well, now I don't need to call him Topspin. Heatwave is just as fine.

No, Topspin is not Heatwave! Heawave is the torso! Topspin is a limb! You misread that.

If you ask me, Brawn sounds kinda like Rattrap: small bot who blows stuff up.

And Blackout sounds like the Decepticon equivalent to Omega Supreme. And yet, everyone thought it would be Trypticon.

when is blurr,swindel,shockwave,skywarp,dirge,cliffjumper,jetstorm and jetfire coming out to retail
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-11-29 19:39:33
That's completely off topic. But I'll answer anyway.

Jetfire & Jetstorm: November 2008

All the other you said: December 2008

For anymore release date questions, go here:

On topic: Out of these nine, we have yet to see what Hot Shot and Red Alert look like.

Does anyone think jetfire/jetstorm are worth buying? Cause I'm thinking they don't look that great in any mode and even though I'm a completeist I still don't want to waste money on a toy I'm not gonna enjoy.

That's also off topic, BB. But I think they're worth getting. I find them rather appealing.

I wonder if Jetfire knows Hot Shot. What with Jetfire being all fire like and Hot Shot being a pyrotechnician.

i hope galvatron makes it to transformers animated season 3

Sabrblade said,  - 2008-11-29 22:30:30
I thought it was said the Galvatron would not be in TFA awhile back.
starscreamer said,  - 2008-11-29 22:40:21
ok my bad. what about omegasupreme
making it to the toy line
Blasten Blaster said,  - 2008-11-29 22:50:49
I know it's off topic but you reminded me to ask so I figured I should before I forget again.

Strika as Lugnutz consort? this is going to be interesting!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-11-29 23:11:53
I know. It sounds quite funny for a hardcore war General to have a dumb-headed Megs fanatic for a... well whatever one would interpret the meaning of "Consort" in this case.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-11-29 23:44:29
Not if I have anything to say about it!

And... they're back!
starscreamer said,  - 2008-11-30 00:15:35
i know this is off topic but is sunstorm going to be released in the united states

I'm not sure if its just me being bleh, but hasbro/animated producers dont always speak the truth. So, if its said that Galvatron or others WONT be in TFA, then i give it a 50/50 chance, not exactly no chance of them appearing.

doesn't shadow blade megs kinda count as galvatron?
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-01 19:11:26
Only if he appears in the show itself, or the comics.

As of now, SB Megs is a toy-only version of the character.

can't wait. it sounds like to me Rodimus Prime is another Ultra Magnus and Hot Shot is another Bumblebee.
