    The smooth simple designs of Animated just don't lend themselves to hrooge toys imo, but I know kids will love it.

    I would get that figure if it wasn't for the arm gimmicks I feel they just ruin the toy in a way.

    Considerably worse looking than the Voyager version. Not even slightly tempted to get this.

    But why is it that every version of Animate Prime except the Voyager has a show-accurate axe? Why did the one that is pretty clearly the "main" Prime figure of the line get stuck with the weird double-bladed donut on a stick?

    Oh yeah, the Voyager version's the way to go. I'll spring for the pre-earth mode as well, but not right away.

    I bought ult bumlebee even when I thought it looked bad. But ult BBs bad is no where near this. I agree that animateds smooth lines and style does not lend it self to being made larger. But I think the biggest problem is that seems detail less to me. Or at least not enough fine details.

    I actually like this!
    It could use some work on the truck mode and the block at the waist, but I like it a lot!

    Eh, more money for classics 2.0 and other Animated. Pass.

    Same here. I've already got the 2-pack and I'm waiting to pick up the voyager.
