Let me start off by saying, this is NOT a review. As some of you may know or just heard me say it on the boards, I hate Transformers: Animated. I just can not stand the aesthetic. Well, today, while I was visiting TJ Maxx, I found an Animated Voyager Shockwave for $10. Now, normally, if I saw an Animated figure on the shelf, I would toss it aside looking for movie or Generations stuff. But this guy had been there a while, and it was, well, Shockwave, so I thought "Ah, what the heck. I'll just get him to see how I like him." And now that he's out of the box and been transformed a couple times, I've got to say, not bad. The only things I have problems with are that his legs don't peg in in vehicle mode and neither do those leg panels that pop off all the time, that his head is quite visible in vehicle mode, and in Longarm mode, his legs are kinda...weird, for a lack of a better word. Too many joints between the hip and knee (thankfully, this is fixed in Shockwave mode by locking them with that small leg piece). Overall, a neat figure (never thought I'd say that about an Animated figure). Now, will this mean I will wholeheartedly accept the aesthetic and collect every figure from the line and get really into the show? No. I still don't like the look of them in general, and I don't really think that thought could be changed. But maybe, just maybe, this could serve to me as a stepping stone into the line (though I doubt it).
