    With Animated coming to a close and the chance the line won't be continuing what are your favourite figures to come from the Animated line?

    Also which do you feel will be the most saught after in the years to come?


    My favourite Animated figures are Blazing Lockdown & Leader Bulkhead and I feel Blurr will be the most wanted over the years due to the character and quality of figure.

    Not much for animated figures but due to lack of a figure representatio in the Classic/Universe line I find interest in and maybe eventually picking up Swindle, Blurr and Arcee (if she makes it to a release).

    As far as the most saught after I will agree with you on Blurr :thumbs2: . Everything I have heard about figure has been good. And if there is not an eventual Classic/Universe release all three could become stand-ins in various collections.

    Personal Favorites- Blurr, Jazz and Starscream.
    Blurr- Excellent transformation with a Transtech nod.
    Jazz- Just a good, solid figure with a fun transformation and solid alt mode.
    Starscream- I never had the issues some had with his legs and automorph. All in all, he's great fun and full of character.

    I can't say enough about some of the Activators. They are some of my favorite TF's ever. Yes, they're simple and there's no challenge to them. I don't care. The play value of the Starscream mold, Megatron, Ratchet, Bumblebee (and Cliffjumper) and Grimlock is so worth it. If they ever do an Omega Supreme, I think it'll be more in scale to the Activators anyway.
    This kind of simple transformation has been around for years, with Beast Wars, Machine Wars and Robot Masters. Activators just improves on it and makes it more enjoyable.
    Sure, there are a few losers in the line, but that's normal. Lockdown and Bulkhead really aren't worth it.

    Leader: Tough one, the two leaders I have (Megatron and Ultra Magnus) are both really great figures. I like the look of Megatron more overall, but his simple transformation is a little disappointing. Ultra Magnus is pretty cool, well armed, but the location of his shoulder joints make most poses that have his arms anywhere other than straight down look kinda...weird, but he has a really nice transformation.

    Voyager: This one is no contest. Shockwave. My absolute favorite design from the series and my absolute favorite figure in the line. Cannot praise this guy enough.

    Deluxe: Probably Blurr, Oil Slick, or Jetfire and Jetstorm. Blurr is a fantastic update of his G1 self, has a great transformation, and is just really fun and surprisingly posable and can hold most poses well despite how skinny he is, especially in his legs. Oil Slick is a really cool character that doesn't pay back any homages to past characters (at least not that I am aware of), he looks awesome in both modes, and is just...really cool. Jetfire and Jetstorm have a lot of personality and pair with eachother very nicely, and the combiner aspect puts them a cut above most other Animated deluxes.

    Prowl and Jazz are still my favourites. I have been very picky with this line and haven't got that many, actually. (And not many are available in my area :( )

    Lockdown. Awesome character and fun transformation (I've transformed him more than any other figure I have, a good 500 times).

    I really like the seeker mold, too. I've never been a Sunstorm fan but the colors seem to fit this mold better.

    It's hard to pick one favorite. Lugnut deserves a round of applause though, for looking like a plane from all angles, including the bottom!
