    Got back from Botcon yesterday night and put the exclusives up on the shelf.

    Certainly hope this isn't the end of Animated figures entirely and that it'll continue to see releases here and there via other types of outlets.

    Dude, those are just amazingly awesomely stunningly beautiful! :rock 

    I have a complete Animated collection and the Stunticons set on their way. Somehow gotta pick up the rest of the figures from this year as the last few days have actually rendered my collection slightly less complete!

    Loving the fact that the brand still lives on in various forms and I'm sure this won't be the last we see of it. :cool:

    Yeah my one regret was not signing up for the customizing class to get that Minerva. :(

    Well, having seen the price she is going for already, I'd say it's not something I will ever be able to own.

    I can pretty much bet that chms will have a ko out in like 6 months, with the exception of a misaligned pin I was very happy with my chromia and look forward to their Minerva

    These stunticons are lovely.

    I know this isn't happening, but imagine if third parties released an addon-set to make them combine. Then the Fandom explodes.

    Hmmm... Good point. Although CHMS never actually got round to producing a 'proper' classics G2 Sideswipe, there was just that sprue kit thingy so you could make your own. I might go for a KO Animated Minerva but my guess is with the basic colours it has the potential to end up looking pretty cheap (a bit like the Animated Chromia IMO).

    Ah, one of the best lines ever. They look great altogether, nice shots. It is sad that there are gaps... more Voyager Seekers, the now-seemingly-unobtainable Minerva.... but that doesn't take away from coolness of the line as a whole. And don't forget, Cheetor is still forthcoming! I do hope a few more figures eke their way to existence, through one exclusive avenue or another.

    Re: Minerva KO, not to start a KO debate (as there have been more than enough of those recently, ugh) but I think I've decided I'm pretty much okay owning a KO Minerva if one gets produced. The Chromia and Paradron figures are decent, better than the average KO, and at least it would mean character completion. Yeah, it would be unofficial, but honestly, there are a lot of other things I'd rather spend a grand on than the bragging rights attached to owning a "real" Minerva.

    EDIT: Whoah, I just noticed you have the Reprolabels battle-mask on Elite Guard Bumblebee. That looks GREAT! And really helps distinguish him from the regular Bumblebee. Hope you don't mind, but I'm totally borrowing that idea and picking up that upgrade set now.

    Nice collection you have there RW. Yeah I agree, Animated was a great toyline that will be missed and I hope Hasbro finds a way to get the other figures out to market.

    One question on Motormaster, does he come with Prime's head or was it removed?

    Yeah when I got that Reprolabels set I figured it was the best way to differentiate the two Bumblebees. I'm probably going to rename the Elite Guard one Yellowjacket or Hornet.

    It was removed and installed with a completely new head. Toxitron retains OP's head.

    That's my custom Animated Razerwire.

    Haven't read the comic yet. The art looks great though.

    It's a shame Animated never finished it's releases. To think we'd probably also be having Marauder Megatron and Hotshot now.

    I wish i had the Botcon set and Blackout.

    You're also forgetting POWERMASTER OPTIMUS PRIME.
    Just thinking about how awesome those never-to-be-released figures were going to be makes me sad.
    I really miss Animated, and I just can't get into Transformers Prime. The whole show is kinda meh and aside for the first five episodes that really told a grand story, the rest of the episodes were quite dull. That's not something I could say about anything in TFA.
    Hopefully IDW are going to bring Animated back in comic form after having the majority of the people in attendance for their panel admitting they prefer an Animated book over Transformers G1 #81.

    Anyhow, I *love* this collection. Great post. I have a lot of gaps to fill in mine :)

    I echo every word of this. Does anyone know if there were any new Animated characters intro'd in the comic that weren't already seen or didn't get toys?
