    So far I have picked up all the leaders and deluxes!

    Just the other day I saw the activator lines, and they looked sorta enticing in their own little way.

    Just wondering, what you guys are planning to do?

    I might just pick up the bumblebee, but the starscream and bulkhead look sorta sexy too. I'm confused!

    P.S. shouldn't activators be priced less than deluxes???

    i wasn't sure about them till i saw them. i have the first wave and think i will only have that wave though. i like the prime but rartchet and lockdown look ridiculous to me. and I know thundercracker and that other bumblebee are just going to be repaints. so I will make my decision on which ones I get later. as you stated they are priced too close to deluxes and that money could go towards them over activators.

    Yeah, they're worth it. I'm only planning on getting BB and SS for now, though.

    Seems like they're worth it. They're good for playing around with when you're on the go.

    I like those two the best. Bulkhead is all floppy and nothing tabs anywhere. But 'Bee and Screamer are pure awesome.

    That's my thought. I didn't know they were so small until I saw them and there's no way I'm paying $8-$9 for one. They do look pretty cool, though...

    Well worth it, at least for Starscream.

    This. Bulkhead's a waste of cash, IMO, Bumblebee is worth it, but just barely, and Starscream is EASILY worth picking up. Definitely grab BB and SS once they hit major retailers for a buck less than TRU.

    Yeah, now that I bought Leader Megs and completed my collection I thought I'd be safe from crack for a while, but I'm getting drawn into these Activators, and I can't help it.

    I bought all 3 to keep on my desk at work.

    Bumblebee has the most satisfying activation

    Starscream looks great in both modes

    Bulkhead drives me crazy, he even has tabs that look like they should keep his legs up and his sides tucked under, but there is no notch to put them in. So his wheel pieces just out at an angle.

    BTW the movie line activators were in no way close to these activators right?

    If I remember correctly.... the other activators looked big and dumb, these look cute and intricate?

    Like others have said, the Starscream one is pretty great, is plenty poseable, and has his null ray cannons, so he's definitely worthwhile. Bumblebee looks good in both modes, and I even like Bulkhead, though he's definitely the weakest of the bunch.

    Activator Screamer has to be pretty awesome to make up for his laughable McD's toy. They didn't even try with that thing.

    those movie 's were call FAB fast action battler... those aren't like these animated activators. The activators features the one button press and its spring loaded action transformed roughly 80% ... I had act bb ; it is ok but not a must get... since deluxe bb has the most show accurate transformation. I got it long time ago on the day when I couldn't get anything else at a Tru. I could have saved that $9 if I saw deluxe bb... as of the rest.. I 'd just skip skip skip skip skip...
