    I love the animated line and most are brilliant. I know a few have minor things, but some just need a serious bit of work. Now BB is getting sorted what do you guys think on the others

    The ones I think are

    Voyager Prime - Face and WTF is the axe?
    Leader Bulkhead - scrap the weapons etc and make him accurate
    Voyage Lugnut - They have said we will get a Leader Class hopefully with the new rocket poke we will

    They have NOT said we will be getting a Leader class Lugnut. They even said that they really hadn't put any thought into it when asked about the possibility of one at last years Botcon. The only people talking about a Leader class Lugnut are fans who want one. Also, I don't think that any of the figures need any changing. The only reason I think Bumblebee is getting a new mold is that he's one of their known big sellers, and will probably use the sub/armor at some point in Season 3.

    not really a do-over but i think a 2-pack voyager class of the 2 mutants would be interesting..................................and mixmaster/scrapper set would be bitchin too

    I wish Soundwave and Sentinel Prime were Voyager sized for sure

    nothing IMO is wrong with Prime's face

    Last I knew they hadn't really said anything about the two bots getting toys, let alone if they would be sold together or separate. As far as I know the whole thing about them coming in a two-pack is just fan speculation.

    Yeah....nothing is wrong with Voyaget Prime's face.....as a matter of fact, I think Voyager Prime is one of THE BEST Animated figures thus far.

    Here's what you do, ditch Voyager Pirme's axe and water pistol and give him the axe from battle-damaged deluxe Prime. Then, get some reprolabels and you'll have the best Animated Prime there is. That's what I did.

    Hasbro is quoted as saying that the timing is bad for them to make the Animated Constructicons. They said they wanted to do them right and have the figures play up to the Constructicons' iconic abilities (IMO Combining.)

    IMO this means the timing is bad because the Constructicons are one of the featured characters/toys in the ROTF movie and toyline. I believe Hasbro makes it a rule not to release new versions of the same character in seperate toylines at the same time.

    Yeah, I remember that. What I meant by "they hadn't really said anything about the two bots getting toys" is that they haven't said anything that confirms they'll make them. Basically I wouldn't put any hope into them getting toys, even after the Movie CC's are off shelves. I'm not doubting that they will, but I'd rather not get my hopes up waiting for them to make the two bots. Also, they have said absolutely nothing about the possibility of them coming in a two-pack. Which is what my post was aimed at. It's the second piece of fan speculation to be said in this thread as though it was fact.

    Sorry about Lugnut. I thought Hasbro said he was on the redo list on their Q&A`s

    Yeah Rathchet could do with having his magnits sorted.

    I have a box of bits that I have cast off from my TFA. Will have to dig out my Laserbeak now those new spoilers are out.

    i think all the figures are great. A few imperfections throughout the line, but that makes you remember them more.

    The only Animated toy I don't love is Snarl. Only reason I picked him up is to have the complete Dinobots. But I wouldn't be happy if they re-did him - that'd be a waste of resources they could use to make the newer characters. He's fine as a dumb, flimsy brick.

    The main one I would like is the leader Bulkhead without all the weapons and crap.

    They had to have the weapons or lose the talking head gimmick. And personally i think he's awesome :)  i don't really think any figures need re-doing.
