    I am seeing some Animated Dinobot sets on ebay, are those worth buying if I dont want to spend the money on a G1 set? Im watching a loose set but under 50 bucks just wondering If i should make a move in picking it up

    Hell yeah.

    Grimlock is the best Grimlock yet. Snarl isn't as good, but he's okay. I don't have Swoop, though.

    I'd say that if you're going to go for the Animated Dinobots, get all three.

    For me, at least, they're a bit underwhelming by themselves. But as a team, they're really great. Even Snarl, who's definitely the weakest toy of the bunch, shines when posed with the others.

    I say go for it.

    Only Animated Deluxe Swoop is worth buying.

    Get the Beastwars Neo Triceratron mold instead of animated Snarl.

    I'd recommend getting the FOC Voyager Grimlock. the classics 1.0 deluxe grimlock is a better mold than the animated toy.

    They are great. I am going against the others by saying, I like Snarl. His beefy proportions look good on him.

    I think all three are great, even Snarl. At 30 bucks for all three, that's great!

    meh, 30 for all 3 loose as long as they are complete is still a good deal.

    though I wouldn't think of them as "settling" for the g1 dinobots. animated are very very cool in their own style, but the same goes for the g1 dinos. when you have the time and resources, I'd hunt down a set of the g1 crew as well.

    They are a pretty cool little gang. Snarl is the weakest of them but I wouldn't wanna be without him if I had the others (which I do).

    This.

    Unless you plan on leaving them in Dino-mode,then Snarl is alright.It's just his bot mode that sucks.

    Grimlock is awesome, IMO. I don't own Swoop or Slag so I can't comment on those two.
