    I just got TFA Lugnut for a really sweet price.
    But his colors are much darker than the pics and feedback i saw.

    He may be show accurate, but i am starting to like Atomic Lugz, so i was wanting some opinions about him before i order. Which Lugnut do you prefer?

    and does he really have a shark mouth painted on, near the cockpit?

    What a perfect opportunity to showcase TFW2005.com's very own RESOURCE SECTION!

    These questions and more can be answered by clicking on the RESOURCES button up at the top.

    Lugnut (Atomic) - Transformers Animated - Transformers Resources

    And yes, Atomic Lugnut has a mouth painted on, and it looks cool. If you're a Lugnut fan, I think it's worth it, especially if you don't have the original. Mold-wise, there is no difference though.

    atomic lugnut all the way, the shark mout looks very cool in robot and plane mode. To me the original scheme is way too light and looks like barney the dinosaur :/

    I have Atomic Lugnut, and he's pretty cool. Other then deco, I assume it's pretty much the same figure.

    I really like this deco though. I've always thought the whole shark mouth on a jet/plane was neat.
    Kinda wish he had looked like this in the show.

    lol Yeah so I'm told. But for the life of me I couldn't see it.

    Maybe when the DVD comes out I'll get a better look. :p

    I have to say that I like both regular and atomic, but if I have to choose I'd say regular Lugnut for show-accuracy.

    I like Atomic Lugnut, but never picked him up. I was happy with the other Lugnut, even with the scale issue.

    In the episode where the Autobots thought they were human, Atomic Lugnut was flying around at one point.

    I say AL.

    The orignal is so plain. "Bow down before Megatron."

    While this one says, "Bow down before the mighty Megatron! Or I'll shoot or bite you with my guns or my painted mouth."

    I don't have either figures, but I think Atomic Lugnut looks cooler.

    They're both the awesome.

    Although I only have regular, I wish I had Atomic.

    Well... if you're like me and you want accuracy for Animated figures, go with Lugnut.

    Buuut, if you just care about the toy... well, then you'd probably like the Atomix redeco. I'll stick with the original :)

    I own both but let me tell you i am much happier with my atomic lugnut the only downside to him is that when i brought him to a friends house he was offended, they dont like anything related to atomic power because one of their relatives is a Hiroshima survivor so unless you hang out with people that where in Hiroshima buy the atomic Lugnut.

    I have been holding off picking this guy up since I already have two purple Lugnuts. Maybe I should finally pull the trigger and get an atomic version. He does look cool, and I could always use a third Lugnut.
