    Am I allowed to play?

    Lockdown
    Prowl
    Cyb Prime
    Bulkhead
    BA
    Starscream
    Ratchet
    Grimlock (anyone want to buy it off me? I really can't seem to bring myself to enjoy it any more)

    That list only includes what is in my hands now. I've had others (BB, Voy Prime, the 2-pack, Blitzwing) but sold them... They aren't entirely spectacular any more, either. I love when a line grows "old" before it's out.

    1. Starscream and Prowl
    2. 2 pack Prime - Actually a great little figure, and his axe is the best of all animated primes
    3. Lockdown. - even though his hands SUCK
    4. All the rest - All great little figures. Although each one has some idiosyncracies that annoy me. Mostly balance issues etc...

    I have all wave 1 and 3 voyagers and wave 1 and 2 deluxes, as well as the Battle Begins pack.

    1.Prowl
    2.Lugnut
    3.Lockdown
    4.Ratchet
    5.Cyb Prime (tied)
    5.Bulkhead (tied)
    7.Starscream
    8.2Pack Megatron
    9.2Pack Prime
    10.Bumblebee

    Prowl is just pure win, plain and simple. Fixing his knees was the easiest fix yet.
    Lugnut just looks so frigging badass I had to go with him for no. 2 even though he's not nearly as poseable as the others.
    Only real slight disappointment was Starscream. I like voyagers to have transformations that are slightly more complex than a deluxe, not easier. He's too much of a breeze for me.
    I passed on a Grimlock, but am definitely getting him someday. Not sure about Voy Megs cause I'm real happy with the deluxe. Never really cared to get Blackarachnia, but she's been so good on the show I'm warming up to it.
    Dying to get my hands on some Voy Prime and Leader Megs....

    Of what I have, in order, with no ties:


    1. ) Blitzwing
    2. ) Leader Megatron
    3. ) Voyager Prime
    4. ) Grimlock
    5. ) Lugnut
    6. ) Prowl
    7. ) Lockdown
    8. ) Cybertron Prime
    9. ) Leader Bulkhead
    10.) Blackarachnia
    11.) Voyager Bulkhead
    12.) Soundwave
    13.) Starscream
    14.) Ratchet
    15.) 2pak Megatron
    16.) 2pak Prime
    17.) Bumblebee
    18.) Voyager Megatron


    Granted, even Voyager Megatron, while flawed, is still a pretty fun figure. I'd take any of my top 17 over the best movie figure.

    After opening up Lugnut and Grimmy, updated list

    1. Prowl
    2. Grimlock
    3. Bulkhead
    4. Lugnut
    5. Earth Mode Deluxe Prime
    6. Ratchet
    7. Blackarachnia
    8. Bumblebee
    9. Lockdown
    10. Battle Begins Megs
    11. Cyb. Mode Prime
    12. Starscream

    Grimlock is definitely amazing, and Lugnut is an awesomely pleasant surprise. Didn't know he'd be that badass. Once I placed his mace in his hand and "slammed" it to the ground, I was sold.

    1. Voyager Prime & Leader Megatron (Leader Ultra Magnus will probably retake this spot soon!)
    2. Blitzwing
    3. Lugnut
    4. Grimlock
    5. Lockdown
    6. Starscream
    7. Voyager Megatron
    8. Prowl
    9. Bulkhead
    10. Deluxe Cybertron Prime
    11. Deluxe Battle Begins Prime
    12. Deluxe Battle Begins Megatron
    13. Ratchet
    14. Bumblebee
    15. Blackarachnia

    Tllection. Got most if not all of them, love them all. Blackarachnia is definitely the worst though IMO. If you don't have Voyager Prime, get him asap. fucking amazing and perfect figure. Especially if you give him the Battle Begins Prime's axe!

    Here's how I've rated my three Animated figures. From top to bottom, rated by play value and fun factor:

    1. Blitzwing
    2. Lockdown
    3. Starscream

    Lugnut's on the way - I'll post a revised version of this list once he arrives at my home.
