Although Transformers Animated series has ended, the toys are still coming. That's a good thing as personally I really like the animated series design.
Rodimus Minor in the animated series only happen to appear in one single episode, the vehicle design remain loyal to his G1 design but the robot mode give him a new twist as a bowman. Unlike the G1 cartoon, he never get to be promoted as a Prime. On the whole, I like the design but the jaw is not that Rodimus looking. Nonetheless will get this if I see it out on retail.
Repaint has found Oil Slick who also appear on the same episode with Rodimus prime who was going to pour some rusty stuff to Rodimus. The color seems better than the previous version which has to be. Is the repaint necessary? you tell me.
I am sure many Transformers toy collectors are now concentrating on the coming movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which the movie is opening this Thursday. Hasbro is kind of slow in releasing the Animated lines (some even on clearance sales!). I am more into the Animated toys than the coming movie ones. I may pick some of the movie toy but I will certain to focus on the Animated series. :)
