    I only have one battler - Starscream. I don't really care about the character, I bought him really just to humor Hasbro. Well guess what...it is by far the film product I've played with the most. The simple yet elegant automorph technology allows me to transform him on a whim, while still having just enough articulation to display a couple different poses.

    It's just a really fun yet inexpensive toy. My other figures are either stuck in a pose like Megatron below, or in a bin. But Starscream is the one I like to handle and transform constantly. Frankly, I really wish Animated would have toys like that. But they probably know the fandom would be hostile to that.

    I think I'll buy a second battler tomorrow. Starscream needs an Autobot to crush.

    Inexpensive? They're the same price as deluxes. But they're bigger, so...

    I have FIVE FABs and I love them all! SS is my favorite, followed by Brawl, then Ironhide, Prime and Jazz!

    They are so cool! Brawl is actually way better than his deluxe counterpart!

    You already convinced me to pick up Leader Megatron (planning to later today)...don't even try convincing me on the FAB line.

    Yeah I'm always tempted to buy Brawl even though I have deluxe. It really does look better.

    If you want another Brawl, wait to upgrade to the Leader version.

    FAB Brawl has empty legs, weak arms (in a different way) and detachable turret with missiles that keep falling off. Overrated.

    Give in... give in!
    :D 

    Seriously, FAB isn't bad. I never noticed he had empty legs till Megatroptimus mentioned it. The turret on my stays on fine, I like it being detachable since I prefer the vehicle mode without it. The missles fall out, but he looks stupid with them in anyways.

    For $15 Cnd ($10 USD), you deffinatly get your money's worth.
