    How y'all like the Animated TF line? I purchased Snarl & Rodimus Minor. I wasn't so sure about the line when I glanced at it the first time in TRU. Then on my next visit, I decided to buy the Snarl cuz he was on deep discount. I grabbed the Rodimus too. I really like the animated touch to the G1 characters, and the colors are good. It keeps growing on me. I hope to get the other two dinobots, at least.

    I miss it.

    Dearly.

    Not as much as I miss Alternators/BinalTech but it's getting though.

    Yeah I wish I'd decided to collect earlier. I feel like I've missed out on some good lines, like this one. One TRU has a decent amount of Animated left, but not all of it.

    If you can find Grimlock, arcee and Sentinel Prime around, snap them up. They're very good toys that occasionally can still be found on shelves if you look in the right stores. Those are just a few highlights you might be able to find - there's tons of other great toys in that line you may want to try and dig up on eBay. I really liked Animated.

    Check Ross/TJMaxx if you have them near you.

    Thank you for the advice. I'll look for them. I don't recall seeing them at the TRU from the other day. But the TRU a little closer by had like three or four full pegs. Any other figures from the line that you think are top notch?

    Yes! There's a TJ Maxx right by the TRU. Awesome idea. Thank you. :)

    I didn't get into the Animated line until Arcee came out.Now I'm trying to collect the whole line.The quality of the figures is ten times better than any of the movie stuff.

    lol! I refuse to touch the movie lines. The only time I ever put my hands on one is if my nephew needs one transformed. I agree that the quality is superb on the Animated. I really liked how Snarl transformed and was well thought out. The only thing I thought was lacking was the connection of his legs... it didn't seem to snap in and stay.

    Anyway. I'm putting Arcee on my list too. :)

    Starscream, Skywarp, Grimlock, Wreck-Gar, Optimus, and Shockwave are my favorite of the Voyagers. I don't like the voyager Megs, but the leader versions are awesome.

    Animated is my favorite line next to the originals (G1). BTW check Marshall's for animated figures too

    if it's a list you're after:
    Leader Megatron is great IMHO
    same for Ultra Magnus
    Despite what others may think Blitzwing is a really nice one too
    to name only a few but those are long gone from shelves as far as I know.

    Animated is really the first got to get them all line for me since Beast Wars/Machines. I really miss that series.

    Still hurts seeing the stuff I could of had if the series went on.

    Yeah I love the G1s too. The Animated are a more modern version of them - it's neat. I'll have to see where Marshalls is from me. I forgot about them too.

    Are any of the Bumblebees any good? One best out of all of them? I saw there's a bunch of them.
