Gallery images of many new Animated characters

Animated ain't dead yet in the U.S., it would seem. Even after the 42-episode TV cartoon series has reached its end, it's still alive and kicking in the form of other products. Aside from a few remaining figures that have yet to be released, one such piece of merchandise that has breathed new life into this series is the largely fanservice-filled book, The AllSpark Almanac II.

From this book came several additions to the lore of the Malgus cluster (as the world of Animated is known in universal terms) in the form of new character images and descriptions. While there's an obvious unliklihood of any of these receiving toys of their own (due to their existence proceeding the toyline's developmental end), they're still interesting individuals to view and learn about.

While these new faces were introduced in the book, many of them have reappeared in Bill Forster's Deviant Art gallery for our viewing pleasure. While not all of the images of his gallery are not Transformers-related, the first 38 images are of all kinds of TF:Animated goodness; beginning with the Decepticon poet Sky-Byte and ending with the Skullgrin ad.

Be sure to read what descriptions accompany their images (after being clicked on) to learn a little more about each character.
