Oh wonderful, WONDERFUL!  Hasbro PR, we are unworthy to even bask in your magnificant aura!  Your pictures so vivid, your communication so revealing!  Your brilliance astounds us all! 

Animated Sunstorm, the fantastically written Starcream (suck-up) clone and a G1 color inspired Shockwave have been revealed to us this morning as soon-to-be-released Target Exclusives!  Check out their photo galleries by clicking the links.

We've also been sent images of new Universe Mini-cons and Robot heroes.  Bear with us as we get the images uploaded!

And really, we extend a sincere thank you to Mr. Muscone for sending us the images!

Wow, shockwave looks a lot better in his original color scheme.

Now I'm torn. I really like Animated Shockwave's color scheme because it's so much like Nemesis Prime's, but I really like this one too. And I've been considering getting that Bumblebee so that he'd be pretty size accurate, and now I could get both in one shot, but I'm not sure what to do...

I think I will stick to the originals

I'm only gonna get Sunstorm (unless he gets released alone without the Actvator Ratchet, which I don't want). at last, the Sycophant clone has a name! But why does he have so much red in jet mode?

This Shockwave doesn't look so good in these colors. It just doesn't look right. Had his body been more G1-like (like Energon Shockblast did), then I might reconsider. But for now, I'll get regular one.

Plus, I've already got Activators Bumblebee, so this inclusion of him also turns me off this set.

Hey, for recolors? There are NO complaints from me here! LOVE'm!

Hey, is everybody diggin' the gallery functionality? Does everyone understand that after you click the thumbnail, it brings you to a medium sized image. Then to see full it in full size, you click the "Large" text link at the top? ... Just makin' sure!

Okay, I am SOOOO getting these!!!

I mean, first Animated Shackwave gets his original voice actor, and now a few months later he gets his original color scheme. Very fitting!

Can I get our opinions on this: I honestly think that an even better voice actor for Sunstorm (this incarnation) would be great if it was Gilbert Gottfried. The voice fits perfectly! If he can do a good Mr. Mxyzptlk, he can do a suck-up Sunstorm.

Saweet! I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but "I'm really pumped for these recolors!" Wow, Thank you Target Exclusives. They look great!

I can't tell if some of the above posts are sarcastic or not.

I think the Animated Voyager Starscream mold is flawed but still worth buying in that color - especially if they've corrected the production errors and bad quality issues that show up so much in Skywarp.

shockwave is awesome and so is sunstorm. if animated was a little more true to g1 looks, it would be alot more popular.

Is shockwaves neck really supposed to extend that much? mine doesnt seem to do that.
