    I just started doing this as well to add to my movie ranks. When they originally came out in 2007 they really clashed with the movie figures but not so much now, especially with TLK Barricade.

    TLK Barricade is definitely a bridge between Movie aesthetics and CHUG aesthetics. I've said before I thought he looked like a CHUG version of a movie character. He's the "missing link" in Transformer evolution.

    Although, I just recently acquired ROTF Grindor and he leans less into Movie-style to me. Kind of balances out the whole shelf.

    Unrelated, but I'm loving Berserker's robot mode. He's like the perfect monster grunt. He's just asking for BB to rip off his face and shoot down his neck-hole or whatever overly-violent death they have planned for him.

    How have I not known this to exist before? This is so damn cool: the 2008 Ani-con Autobot and Decepticon set. They look to be just the Premium figures repackaged, but the presentation is neat

    Even at a decade old these designs still hold up and look good together, they all could conceivably exist in real life, I'd say the one that stretches credibility most is Ratchet's use of a Hummer H2 for a rescue vehicle. To my knowledge those don't exist, but correct me if I'm wrong. I've seen big honkin' trucks like Ironhide, the Solstice was a fairly common car a few years ago, and you can't hit the road without seeing some form of the post 2007-8 Camero. The new AOE alt-modes are way too flashy IMO.

    Great pic BTW.


    Me too. In 2007 five Autobots came to Earth, and those were Bumblebee, Jazz, Ratchet, Ironhide and Optimus. I don't care if they try a butt-pull and say that Drift and Crosshairs were here since 2007, to me, only the aforementioned five arrived here.

    TFW2005 did a write up for these figs back in 2008 it seems: Details Regarding Hasbro Hong Kong's Presence at Ani-con - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Honestly, I typed in the keywords "Transformers 1 Movie all Autobots vehicles wallpaper", hoping to get that shot of all the Autobots in vehicle mode + Barricade and Starscream, but got a picture of the box set instead :p 

    Gonna be harder than finding a needle in a haystack to get one of these. They are limited to a quantity of 100, and the last I heard of someone having it (might be sold by now) was this post. Dude hasnt been active since he joined though: 2008 Ani-Con Transformers Movie Boxed Sets

    EDIT: on eBay for $600 each...

    It was easily one of the worst molds voyager-wise in a long while, IMO.

    I guess I'm in the minority who think Voyager Grimlock is the best movie figure haha.

    I wouldn't say best, but I see no obvious flaw that would make him contender for worst recent voyager mold. Like, we've got T30 Blitzwing that removes his own face paint and requires 3P parts just to connect his shoulders. Also, he doesn't have rubber like some other AoE Dinos.

    Leader AoE Grimlock just looks ghastly though.

    I tried the leader class but the proportions and fact that he's the only leader Dinobot bother me. I like both modes of the Voyager and I just find him really fun.

    As weird as the Leader Grimlock is I still really like him. Being in charge of the Dinobots he really should be the biggest one. And the Beast Mode is weak, but man that Robot Mode is great.

    'Best' is certainly subjective, but for what it's worth, he's the only movieverse dinobot I own.......so far. Once I saw the TLK deco, I was sold. The colors of the AOE dinobots were a dealbreaker for me.

    Damn, trying exactly to think of what I think the best movie voyager was is hard. Part of me wants to say Battle Blades Prime just because he did so muxh that he did, as well as have a Matrix chamber. Galvatron, Longhaul, Mixmaster, and Evasion Prime are all pretty good too.
