    Megatron's face is too dark(the rest should be darker and the face should be lighter) and no fusion cannon? Grimlock looks cool and looks like he has the same mouth gimmick or just an opening mouth

    I'll definetly be getting Megatron and Grimlock. Bandit Lockdown on the other hand, will be an easy pass for me, though I will be getting the other two Deluxe versions of him, to go along with the origional one I already have. I'm going to rename them Mirage and Sizzle, and make them brothers of Lockdown. Here's hoping we get some non-vandalized versions of these pics.

    Edit: Good to see some non-vandalized pics. I wasn't origionaly going to get any Activators, but now that I have Bumblebee, I actually like them. There are at least four more of them that I plan on getting:

    -Grimlock
    -Cliffjumper
    -Megatron
    -Ramjet

    Getting Lockdown. Will wait for repaints of the other two as I've already got the larger versions of those two.

    They look nice, but the only activator I want is Starscream, and I already have him.

    Lockdown looks pretty snazzy in blue. I may have to pick that sucker up.

    Already planned to get Grimlock. :lol 

    Still not interested in the Lockdown mold. Megs looks decent in robot mode though.

    That's what I intend to do. I got the larger versions, and I want to keep with the main line, but I possibly just might get Lockdown...maybe.

    Megatron and Grimlock are actually pretty decent for their size, but that third one is just HORRIBLE!

    Yeah, I prefer having a single version of each - so having Voyager Grimlock meaning I don't need to get Activators Grimlock so I'll wait for the repaint

    I wasn't a big fan of the activators til I saw em at SDCC. Grimlock and Megs are must haves, Lockdown on the other hand, I'm still not sold...

    Missed G1 Homage opportunity . They should have swapped the colors on Megs head to give him a white face and black helmet.

    I like Bandit Lockdown but not his toy. Had these colors been used on the Deluxe repaint with the chainsaw attachement, I'd buy it in a second.

    Hrm. Megs is stuck in permanent bicep curl pose. Still looks great for the size though.

    And my Cannonball's going to have a new crew member when Bandit Lockdown shows up!

    Grimlock looks too good to be true!:drool: 
    Megatron looks great too!
    And as for the new lockdown...

    The car mode looks good but the robot, kinda lame.:(

    Agreement.

    Prefer Bandit Lockdown's deco over Blazing Lockdown's.

    But the Activator mold is ... for lack of a better word ... weak.
