...good review as always, Josh.


One important thing about Oil Slick here you need to mention:

Unlike all past Transformers lines- which have a hoard of repaints, special-editions, and remakes, "...Animated" is the only one so far that does not have any figures released that don't appear in the series.
Oil Slick is the only toy released so far that does not have a cartoon equivalent, and this was intentional. Hasbro reported that if he became popular enough, he could be written into an actual episode later.

I found this on

I found this on http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Oil_Slick_(Animated):

"At BotCon 2008, it was revealed that Oil Slick was an original Eric Siebenaler design that was never intended to be in the show... but upon finding out about it, the Animated cartoon crew said "we would have worked him in had you told us about this." As such, Oil Slick is currently not slated to appear in the cartoon... but may be worked into the third season, and solicitations confirm that he will appear in the third issue of The Arrival."

Oh, good- so he will make

Oh, good- so he will make it into the series; that's the first confirmation I've heard on that.

Jeez- look at the flexibility in those hips! Holy smokes!

Honestly, if the character weren't already made up, I'd have said that Oil Slick might sound something like the human villain Meltdown from "...Animated"- like he's talking through a liquid, and slurs & lisps because of it.

(Yeah, Meltdown and Professor Princess are my least-favorite of the absolutely-useless human antagonists...)

"And I'm sure an evening

"And I'm sure an evening with Sanjeev would change that."....Something seems kinda wrong about that sentence.

Got one! Totally worth it.

Got one! Totally worth it. It's like a custom designer Transformers that got picked-up and made into a real Transformer.
This guy's legs go on for friggin' forever. Third mode fail.

A shame he didn't look like this in his cameo.
