Takara, represent! :D

Diaclones, Blockman, Microman, and so much other goodness. I've been slowly gathering a good number of Blockman sets myself and saving them for a rainy day...

Awesome is that McBoomBoom from C.O.P.S? Another series I'd like to see again (that Visionaries and Dinoriders).

I spot Alphatron, the Grandstand Convertor as well - nice choice.

Hey, you got some of the W-cassettes! Those are newish, aren't they?

I got Dial from Hydra not too long ago. I've had Zaur for a while now though.

Kickass collection!

Is that a Swinub spotted from Pokemon? Mr. Wyatt, are you a Pokemon fan???

Cobra Commander is a figure from the new Resolute cartoon. They are out in stores now.

It is a Pokemon, I don't know his name. I like some of their designs.

I like him a lot, too! :)

And dino cassettes!

Your photos always end up being like those books where you had to find specific items. You should make a giant diorama of your models and toys, then take a photo. Only this time, you can have specific toys!

Talking of designs, I've been lucky enough to see some of the season 3 'cons. Not to spoil things for anyone, I just want to say that it's very cool that the decepticons now have their own "ultimate robot" type thing. Do they use his altmode for the same purpose?

Hey! I have my Animated Blitzwing in that same pose! Is that Prime/Convoy back there from one of the several Japan-only TF mangas?

All these toys make me wonder if you'd be able to fit the rumored 2ft Movie Devastator anywhere....and did you go through with your plan to get the Movie Brawl who thought he was Devastator for your multi-franchise Combaticon reunion?

Buttons McBoomBoom! Awesome! Who is the blue and yellow guy with the backpack?

(as an aside, we've been having a bit of a debate over at TFWiki - the nameless human reporter dude on Animated - is he a callback to Hector Ramirez, the reporter that showed up on GIJoe, Inhumanoids, etc. back in the day? Personally, I get a Ron Burgundy vibe from the guy. Stay classy.)

Mr. Wyatt, do you plan on training someone to carry on your legacy in your drawing style?

So, Mr. Wyatt, how much Wreck-Gar has been crammed into Season 3? A percentage, or does he appear in every episode like the star he is?

Also, if Animated continues into Season 4, will we see Hot Shot's shoulders hurting? Will he grow a tendancy for red mushy delicious Earthen foodstuffs? Will Cyclonus declare that it is his round pastry filling? Please tick appropriate boxes.

I have no need to declare. The end is near. Soon, all round pastry fillings will be rendered null in the end time. Hot Shot's compassion for Jam shall be his ending.

I keep hoping the Dino double-cassettes will eventually join the roster of Takara's reissues, because darned if I'm willing or able to afford what they go for now...

The yellow-and-blue guy with the Baron Karza/Jieg-style magnetic ball joints looks maddeningly familiar, but I'd have to see his copyright stamp to place him.

And considering all the figures you've got there already, I'm surprised you haven't combined the Street Action Team into Perceptor to save a little shelf space.

Can we go without bombarding Mr. Wyatt with Season 3 questions until he releases another S3 "spoiler" related post like with the Wheeljack and Perceptor artwork?

I'm more interested in his toy collection right now.

I want a two foot G1 Devastator! Though I do like the sort of Thrust like alt mode of the steam shovel guy. I will probably pick him up. I just don't know if I'm down with a rainbow Devy. I need me some green and purple!

The News 44 Reporter does have a name. You would have to ask Marty what the official name is. He wasn't based on Hector Ramirez, but I do wish I had thought of that.

I don't know if I can quantify a season 3 Wreck-Gar percentage...

I think it's safe to assume that Hot Shot's shoulders are hurting, and that he likes some form of ener-jam.

I also hope the W Cassettebots will be reissued. I'm totally obsessed with the cassette-formers, and I really want the last two (official ones) I need.

The yellow and blue guy is an Uniquer from Microman. Uniquers are an awesome and weird sort of sub-set of Microman, I wish I had more.

Those are the Micron Anime Color versions of the Street Action Team. The color variation isn't really visible in Perceptor mode, so I like to display them individually.

Oh, I'm sure somewhere down the line they'll do a G1 repaint of Movie Devs, though I'm honestly surprised we didn't get a G1 Colored Animated Starscream(yet?), if that happened I'd so buy it and consider my current one Animated Thundercracker. I just hope we'll get the entire set of clones as Voyagers.

I just want Animated Starscream in his actual Animated colors!

I loves me some cassetteformers too. I just need Slugfest (coming soon in the Takara reissue), Overkill and the W cassettes to complete Soundwave's army.

It'd be awesome if Soundwave managed to get a few more minions in Season 3.

Hey, thanks for an official word on this, regardless. Now we just have to track down Marty...

I also hope the W Cassettebots will be reissued. I'm totally obsessed with the cassette-formers, and I really want the last two (official ones) I need.

Oh, so you're missing Graphy and Noise still? Seeing these photos, I somehow got the idea you had all four, but those two were just off-camera somewhere.

The yellow and blue guy is an Uniquer from Microman. Uniquers are an awesome and weird sort of sub-set of Microman, I wish I had more.

Well, that explains the Microman Jieg-style magnetic joints.

I just looked them up. Your Uniquer is Akubei Taro, specifically. They've got a rather bizarre in-fiction history...

While Animated Starscream in show accurate colours would be nice Id much prefer getting Liar/Ramjet and Ego/Thundercracker coloured repaints of the voyager mould 1st then it would be ok and Id only have to lament the lack of a femmescream as I really dont think a repaint would do her justice and I highly doubt we will get a new mould wich makes me a sad panda.

>> I just want Animated Starscream in his actual Animated colors!

No freakiing kidding! What's up with that blue/purple wierdness? It's not quite Thundercracker, not quite starscream... Someone in Hasbro toy design, really wants *everything different*. For example, I would have been perfectly content; in fact, I would have preferred each Dinobot to be the same grey/red/gold color scheme. Yet someone found it necessary to make each Dinobot toy a unique grey, unique red... YUCK! They are a "team." They are supposed to wear the same colors!

Thus, my theory on Starscream:
Personally, I want him to be the same colors as Leader Class Megatron. SO, in order to make him different, they end up w/ that ef-ed up blue/purple >>Not quite Starscream.

Oh well, I'll live. What I REALLY want is ALL of the rest of the clones! Especially Ramjet
"No I really don't NEED this toy!"
and the fembot Starscream!
"To continue TFA forever would be the smartest decision Hasbro and CN have ever made!"
She's got to be the small part of Starscream that would actually make a great Decepticon leader>>> his feminine side! :)

hey derrick, i just heard confirmed that tf:animated will conclude with the third series. this seems a bit of a loss considering how popular the distinctive artwork/character design is [and i love how accurate the toys are to the cartoon]
What are your feelings on this? there are heaps of characters that we have not yet got to see - repugnus, the cassettes, any pof the combiners, or some of the organics. I would really hate to see this series end as i think it has been the best series in the last few years [although i will admitt that some of the stories went a little iffy]

Oooh I can see why you like your stuff, it's all pretty neato! To quote my niece, "You're making me jealous!" What guy who works on transformers doesn't have a whole ton of toys? It's probably one of the biggest perks! Toys can take over your house and you have a more legit reason than, "Because they're cool!" I swear I still sometimes mumble to the cashiers that mine "are for my err... relative."

P.S. IF the rumor is true... Then TF:A fandom will be in a very depresssed state....

Are Blockmen the little robots you plu into each other and build stuff with? They look so familiar, I know I had some as a kid.

Monswaar Wyatt, would you voice yourself if on the series? Or, if not, which transformer would you most like to voice? And who do you think your voice most resembles?
