    Currently only with ugly TFormers.com watermarks. Is anyone here at TFW2005 able to turn up better versions without watermarks?

    That's a little harsh.

    These look pretty good for legends size.

    Not really. I'm a fan of the Legends class and these even made me wonder a lot.

    activators versions of Prime & BB are way better than these, Prowl looks okay though.

    Exactly! I think these have made me like animated prowl a lot less. BB looks ok, but the others, blugh.

    Sweet little bumblebee, I know what you want from me
    Sweet little bumblebee more than just a fantasy
    My heart skips a beat when you walk in the room

    I go boom, boom, boom

    You go zoom, zoom, zoom

    You're my playboy, playtoy

    Love, and my friend

    I wanna be with you until the end

    These are... less cool than before. Prowl is cool, though. He just needs black upper-arms.

    They're also bigger and have an action gimmick, Activators and Legends don't even compare to each other.

    Seriously, have people forgotten what legends are when they decided to be "sickend" by these guys? These are probably some of the most accurate and articulated legends made, how are they that bad o_O

    These look okay, but I think I'll pass. I'm not much into the Legends figs.

    I'm actually preferring Legends 'Bee over the Activators version: I think he'll look better with Activators Prime.

    I like that they are articulate but if I'm gonna stick to my rule of cutting down on TF purchases I'm gonna stay away from these guys for sure. I'd buy a Jazz one though, maybe Sentinal or Dinobots

    Prime looks awful. Bumblebee and Prowl look good.

    Even if you don't like Legends, its worth getting Prowl just to pose in vehicle mode if you care about size scale. A motorbike is significantly smaller than an ambulance remember.

    I think they look damn good for legends class figures. That said, I also think we're getting saturated with diferent size-class releases on animated figures. How many TFA Primes and Bumblebees does the world need? Also, maybe I missed something, but why are these being released as "Universe" figures when the TFA line is still alive and well?

    It's not that we forgot it's that legends work for G1 and cybertron characters because they have boxier looks that can be simplified and. I think the movie legends and animated legends look like ass cuz the personality of the original toys gets lost. The movie legends loose their complicated alien look and the animated lack that lean organic feel
