    I was wondering what everyone else on here thinks of Activators. I love em. I actually prefer them than the other Animated figures. I hope we get them in other lines, Movie, Classics, and whatever new cartoon series come out.

    Even tho, I like a lot of the activators, I think they should just stick to making deluxes like classics bumblebee. They made him a small deluxe with an addon. So that BB stays in scale w/ the other classics and he has great articulation and details.

    I use Activators BB for my animated group, but his lack of details make me think they could had given him fists on the inside of the door instead of a fake hand on the inside and no stingers. But activators on their own have a pretty fun gimmick.

    I would like to see RotF Activators (maybe a two-pack ice cream truck that, when the button is pressed, the split apart and transform to robot mode)

    Activators have been around for ages, from RID to Beast Wars. These take the original auto-transform concept and make it better.

    Some of the Activators are the shining stars of the Animated line. Bumblebee, Starscream (and clones), Grimlock, Ratchet and Megatron were some of the best figures available (I gave my Megatron swords and a proper cannon). Personally, I had more fun with these figures than with some of their larger versions.

    So, more Activators? Yes, please.

    Activators are a great gimmick, and a terrific option for kids who may be frustrated with the complexity of some basics or deluxes. I'd like to see them in other lines, as I didn't care for TFA.

    They are a great little desk toy to fiddle with while you do work.

    I'd love to see more Activators for Animated or classic designs. However I would have zero interest in movie-based Activators.

    Don't care. I picked up a few on impulse buy and honestly the only ones I think are worth the plastic are Bumblebee/ Cliffjumper.

    I like 'em. I think Activators Animated Bumblebee is more in scale than the Deluxe release. I'd like to see Thrust and Ramjet Animated simply to round out the line.

    Activators are a ton of fun. It's also pretty impressive how they can work a whole transformation by pressing a button. I'd love to see more

    I really like the Activators and their spring-loaded transformations. In fact, Activators Thundercracker is one of my favorite TFs to goof with.

    I really like Starscream and Optimus, although I do like all the others I have.

    I'm a fan of Activators as I like small, cheap Transformers.

    As long as there will always be great designs in this Activator/Scout size, I will be happy.
