    As my local stores are invading us with FABs, and there's no sight of movie deluxes yet, I was planning on buying some FABs, just to try one or two.

    - What exactly are they?

    - How's the quelity of the toys? Fun transformation? Good articulatiion? Posseability?

    - They seem like Playskool deluxes. Are they any good?

    The more info, the better.

    They're actually pretty fun, but you put it like it is.

    Playskool deluxes.

    yea but some of them are cool to have i'm sure, like the brawl tank, and the deluxe tank, and the leader class tank coming out soon, with those you can build an army of tanks for every class size! :lol  not to mention cyberslammer's brawl!

    They're pretty fun. Bigger than deluxes. Prime, Megatron and Frenzy are pretty well articulated, the others, not so much, but they're still quite decent. Gimmicks (usually 2 per toy) are okay. Plastic quality is pretty good too.

    Better words could never have been said by you, Onesock. :lol 

    The only FABs that actually interest me are Optimus Prime, Frenzy, and Blackout. I MAY feel like getting Brawl, Ironhide, and Starscream. But for now, just the first three that I want.

    I feel compelled to weigh in on the FABs.

    I just got back from Wal-Mart and picked up FAB Jazz for my fiancee's little girl. She's hooked on Bumblebee but they were out. Anways she likes Jazz (don't worry, she left before the end of the movie so she doesn't know what happened to him) so I picked up AB Jazz for her.

    This is a neat little TF, especially for a 7 year old. Transforms super easy and has a decent 'bot mode and a really good alt mode.

    I personally feel they should be cheaper than the Deluxes but I don't make the prices.

    So, while I wrote them off at first, I am sold on them for what they are.

    I'm strongly considering FAB Brawl and Starscream, then I realized I only want them because their mainline toys are so bad.

    FAB 'Bee's not out yet. He's looking to be a pretty sweet one.

    I've got Prime, Ratchet, Ironhide and Jazz right now and love 'em. Sure they're Preschool, but they're a lot of fun and the gimmicks work well.

    They'd be perfect if the price was lower than the deluxes.
    Like $7.99 at least

    Toywise they're pretty cool, and convenient to mess with
