    Not bad, though from the looks of things his alt mode is the best of him. His transformation seems ok, a bit..simple (though considering much of animated is also very simple, and I love them so, no idea why that bothers me for him), and his bot mode seems..ok.

    Probably will get him, I guess.

    I don't know why, but I can't really get excited for Classics 2.0

    Yeah same here, all my excitement is going towards Animated. I thought I would hate Animated and love classics, but it sorta switched.

    Despite that, he looks awesome, so wish they would make bruticus with him

    SWEET!:thumbs2:  I'm definitely getting him. But I wish he looked more like the original G1 version. I don't know where this weird S.W.A.T. thing came from. Sometimes I wonder what Hasbro is smoking. or drinking :drunk

    Will definitely buy it, looks like a neat toy. Quite a nice update. Thanks for the look D Banks :thumb 

    Maybe I can do like the TENTH or ELEVENTH video review by the time I've gotten it at retail!

    gonna be a touch tricky modifying his legs to connect to other TFs... but doable I do believe.

    I liked the behind cam commentary just as much as the in front lol. I like the figure, but doesn't immediately scream g1 onslaught to me, but still nice.

    Animated's kinda ruined me in a way.

    At first, I was enticed by Classics/Universe 2.0, I mean Powerglide, Silverbolt and Onslaught all look absolutely fantastic. Then you throw in some (keyword there...) of the Deluxe Class molds and it's a really great looking line. Some really solid designs.

    Then I saw Sunstreaker and I absolutely *HATED* his mold with a passion. It's ugly as sin, to me. Then I saw Octane and he was even worse in my book. Try as I might, I just couldn't bring myself to like those two. Which lead me to nitpick the rest of them for not being enough of this or that, or I don't like that color, etc.

    Animated on the other hand...definitely met all of my expectations and then blew them out of the water. You'd think a kiddified TF line would be the absolute worst thing...and it couldn't be farther from it if Hasbro tried. It's well designed, and while it's true that they're simplistic, it's also quite a feat of engineering on how they go from robot to vehicle/beast mode and back. Not to mention, they did a terrific job of getting these designs to be so show accurate.

    Not many can take an animation model and actually bring it to life, but Animated did. And deserves an award for it.

    Once all of that sunk in...it was Animated all the way, baby. Hell, I even sold off all of my Classics. (kept Megatron though. Something about that mold....I love it and can't part with it.) And I have no intentions of buying 2.0

    Yes. Banks' reviews are top notch. Really puts some work into it. Almost...a loving attentiveness to the reviews and the subject. Makes for a better experience for all involved.

    He's almost as tall as Leader Megatron.
    Height doesn't actually have that much to do with size class.
    It's more about the bulk and, with these higher size classes, how much electronics they put in.

    A fellow collector spoke to Hasbro rep at TRU who told us he was huge almost leader scale. He wasn't lying. Though I think animated leaders are a little shorter than the leaders from other lines. Definite buy! Especially since I becoming a bit of a classics completist.

    I very much enjoyed the review, thank you.

    Onslaught may not be so G1 accurate, but I think he's close enough, and I didn't see anything about the figure I didn't like. Sure I'm dissappointed that it's not a combiner, but I'm very pleased with the size, detail, transformation, etc. I'll be very excited when I find him at a store, and sure to purchase him at my first sighting.

    Nice review, man. I definitely want to pick him up when I see him. By the way, who else is talking in your vids? I thought I was just hearing voices and going out of my mind. :lol
