    I have been eyeing some fast action battlers for some time now, and I'm thinking of getting 1 or 2. The one I have really been eyeing is Smokescreen.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    I have FAB Ironhide and Night Attack Megatron. I really like the Megatron repaint and would recommend it. It has a lot of detail for it's size.

    I have considering getting the black megs, but one question, is he fully articulated at the legs? Since he is a FAB, I doubt it.

    I have Ironhide and Optimus. Out of those two, Optimus is the best. He's got some decent articulation and his truck mode isn't too bad.

    Only one I have is Frenzy, and that was because it was the only transforming figure of himg we'd be getting. And for what it is, it really isn't that bad. That said, I would recommend him. The rest of the line..not so much.

    I have also been cosidering prime. I like how the missle is attached via a string, and the fact that his legs are fully poseable. The only thing that kills ironhide for me is the ridiculosly small arms.

    I have also been considering ramjet, but I doubt I'll ever find him again.

    Prime, Megatron and Frenzy are the best imo.

    Ebay:
    Bigbadtoystore has the lowest price for the 8 last Fast Action Battlers:
    Pulse Canon Ironhide, Ramjet, Fire Blast Optimus, Smokescreen $33.24
    Fast Action Battlers 2008 - Wave 1 Set of 4 - Transformers Movie 2007 Fast Action Battlers at BigBadToyStore
    Desert Blast Brawl, Rally Rocket Bumblebee, Night Attack Megatron, Rescue Torch Ratchet $24.74
    Fast Action Battlers 2008 - Wave 2 Set of 4 - Transformers Movie 2007 Fast Action Battlers at BigBadToyStore

    You have to buy a set of 4, however, but I would say it is worth it if you like FABs. Smokescreen's deco is good as well as Pulse Cannon Ironhide (based from G2 Go bots Ironhide). Ramjet is better than Starcream's deco. Fire Blast Optimus is a homage to Rodimus Prime. Night Attack Megatron's black deco suits it perfectly, though the transformation is pretty non-existent. Desert Blast Brawl has better colors than Deep Desert Brawl (with no AllSpark blue) and has better shoulders than Movie Deluxe Brawl. The 2 firing shoulder missiles are pretty good too. Rescue Torch Ratchet is a great G1 homage (perhaps more closer to Movie Voyager Rescue Ratchet).

    I would wait to see the new fabs coming out because they look alot better. However I do agree with reviews of frenzy and brawl and I like ratchet as well

    I really liked Frenzy for what it was. Also Brawl is a pretty decent figure, Fab or otherwise!

    Thanks for showing me this. I want to get both waves, but I might have to settle for just wave 1, Since Prime is very articulated for an fab, Ramjet is my second favorite seeker, smokescreen has a great color sceme, and ironhide is OK

    Barricade is pretty cool, although the saw gimmick on his left hand doesn't help him for his transformation. Always jams up for me.
