    Periods, dude....Periods.

    And yes, they are really good. Not Classics 1.0 good, but really good none the less.

    I gotta disagree and say they're just as good as the original Classics. Though it's very clear these guys are from two different lines, they still mix and blend perfectly together. But the Universe just have a certain something...what exactly, I can't put my finger on, that make them less "toy-ish" then the original Classics were.

    I'm very very underwhelmed by Universe/Classics 2.0. I mean, okay, they're decent toys, and they look okay, and they're certainly eons better than the Movie toys, but they still feel really cheap qualitywise, and feel a tad too clunky and toyish for me to truly get into them.

    The quality's made even more apparent since it's being simultaneously released with Animated toys, which all feel really solid and look more like art than just toys.

    I can tell you what the difference is. Classics 1.0 was a direct update to G1. Articulated bricks. Simple transformations all around. Great playability. G1 marries AEC, happily ever after. Cept Grimlock that is, which is why he gets no love.

    Classics 2.0 is a bit more complicated. More a G1+Alternators+Movie love triangle. More arms popping off, more automorphs resulting in tilted chests, no neck, too much neck, etc.

    I do not want to start up another controversy but looking at the difference between classics 1.0 and 2.0 I find the :horse:  Hasbro statement that they did not plan on continuing Classics as the reason for Games of Deception even more believable. My :2c:

    I got all three as well. I'm feeling an urge to get some reprolabels and redo Prowl a bit, since the paint apps are terrible on him, maybe paint the acid blasters in silver

    I love the fact that Sunstreaker has excellent poseability, and if transformed right looks bada-- in alt mode.

    Tankor - I'm kind of wishing they had used the prop wings as the melee blade, it would have made more sense and been a lot more wicked.

    I just found them today at Wal-Mart. They restocked with lots of RH, Legends, and Deluxes, and Activators and Animated Leaders. But only 3 Animated deluxes, Blackarchania, meh, and then I saw Snarl and Oil Slick!!!

    Quickly grabbed them and left Classics 2.0 behind because they had like 20 of em'.
