Default Animated Activators wave 5 (2009 wave 1): Cliffjumper and Dirge

Cliffjumper (Bumblebee remold with new head) was shown in the SDCC slide show.

Dirge is new. There is a listing on Wal*Mart's website for Activators Ramjet. Not sure if that was an old working name. (If you're reading this in two months from now and the link is listing Dirge instead of Ramjet, it was.)

Eek. I'm surpised they didn't do a Ramjet or the Female Seeker... This looks like a bad knockoff...

There's another problem:


What's next, teal? Cyan?

For those worrying that Cliffjumper might not have a mouth, here's a larger version of the in-package shot, cropped to a head shot:

Dirge's robot mode comes out looking awesome, but the jet mode may be pushing it. I'll probably cave in and buy it anyways.

A few months ago Transformers @ The Moon discovered a bunch of listings for new Animated toys on Wal*Mart's website. One of them was for "Activators Ramjet".

So today I went to revisit the Wal*Mart entry. It's still calling the toy "Ramjet", but it's depicting the already-seen images of Dirge.

So I guess that means the case is closed.

That's why Murasame Gundams are so useful. No crappy jet that, frankly, does not scream Dirge at all.

Dirge looks weird. Especially in jet mode.

And Chin-Jumper is freaky. Seriously.

It looks like Cliffy's trying not to scream after getting kicked in the junk. lol

And Dirge looks nothing like Dirge!
