It's been a few months but Transformers Animated.com has been updated with a new poll. This time it asks the simple question "Which Transformers Season 3 Autobot are you most looking forward to seeing?". The options are all from Rodimus Prime's crew:-Transformers Animated character pages to read more about them.
Bio: "Created using the most advanced techniques known to autobot
science, jetstorm and jetfire were cloned from tech recovered from
starscream. Brought online in a secret laboratory deep beneath
cybertron, they are the first autobots created specifically to battle
the decepticons. Though they are young, they are extremely intelligent,
working their way through the Elite Guard boot camp in record time.
Together they are potentially the most powerful Autobots of all time,
especially when they combine into their Safeguard form."
Galactic Powers: "The only Autobots that can fly", "Youngest Elite Guard members of all time", "The first robot's with the ability to combine"

The latest edition of the Master Collector magazine, by Fun Publications, includes some interesting previously un-known Transformers Animated figures. The toys are mainly recolours, although the listing for Arcee and a Voyager Bumblebee are new.
