    I was never really interested in the Animated line, but the two look so amazing! I saw the feedback thread but the images seem to have been removed/blocked.
    And tips where I can get them for cheap other than eBay? I'd like to get it cheap and reasonably, like 15+tax. Help?

    $15 + tax? I've never seen Safeguard below $20. Even now as he's starting to get dusty in my area, he isnt below his initial release price.

    Unless you buy it loose you probably won't get it below retail price, which is about $20 or so.

    Oh, I was under the impression it's retail value was set at 30-25. Hm. Anyway, I still haven't seen it.

    Good Luck.

    All they have now for animated if your lucky Wave 2 and what not.

    I still have yet to see a Jet/Fire,Storm in my area. Though I really don't look since I bought mine when it was released.

    Yeah, all I see at my Target (well the one I work at anyways, there's others I'd rather shop at because they are closer, especially the nice new one right by me that I'll be at once it opens next month, mmmm underground parking, 2 stories, 3 story backroom *drools*) are Swoop, Snarl, Oil Slick, and a couple of the older voyagers.

    Anyways, good luck finding them tc, they're one of my favorite Animated molds.

    I'm confused, is Wave two the current wave for animated and the one that SG/J/J is in? I'm only familiar with ROTF's waves...

    And thanks

    Nah, wave 2 was a long way back (and that was Ratchet and Blackarachnia mostly now that I think about it), actually I think Snarl was wave 3 and swoop was 4, unless there was some revisions, I honestly haven't paid attention to animated waves in ages.

    Anyways, naw, Safeguard (Jetfire/Jetstorm 2-pack) was its own assortment. Kinda like the RotF combiners or Devastator.

    Hasbro Toyshop, $20, and order something else with it to push your total over $25 to get the free shipping code (I think it is BKTF09). Good luck finding it cheaper, Target had them on clearance for $14 about 4 months ago, but the boat has long since sailed on that.

    BKTF09 expired on August 31 already, sadly it does not work anymore. We only have TF2009 for 10% now.

    Of all the times I've been in a store selling TFs, I had only seen the Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm set once -- and that one time it was in a Toys R Us store and was the last one in stock, which I bought.

    Good luck trying to find the Animated Jet Twins for under $20.

    I came across a load half-priced in TRU over here a couple of months ago. I picked one up because I had a few quid burning a hole in my pocket because the item I'd gone in there for was out of stock. Still not opened them yet.
    Half-price here in Blighty is probably normal price for America though so even through it was a decent bargain here it's probably not too exciting compared to prices Stateside.
