    Hey guys I just got my animated lugnut yesterday and I wanted to bring you some pics of the box. Since this is a wave 2 box there are new figures on the box, on the bottom is snarl,autobot jazz, soundwave, and oil slick. Also on the left side of the box is a pic of voyager bulkhead and grimlock, I also took some shots of the bio and instructions, check them out.

    Whoah, he's all teal and stuff..
    I thought he had more grey on him.

    Anyway, thanks for the review D Banks. As it stands he's way too small for my taste, so if they ever get around to releasing him in a bigger size class I might get that.

    Cool. Thanks for the pics. This pretty much prooves that him and Grimlock are going to be the new Voyagers for wave 3. That's good news. I'm curious as to how Grimlock's going to look in the Voyager packaging, so hopefully a boxed Grimlock shows up soon. Voyager Lugnut has convinced me to get the Voyager version of Bulkhead instead of the Leader version. It would be nice to have a Bulkhead that was in-scale with the other Autobots, but I'd rather have both a small Lugnut and small Bulkhead, instead of a small Lugnut and a large Bulkhead. That way these two can be easily posed together in a battle scene. Also on the plus side, it'll be cheaper in the long run (2 Voyagers instead of a Voyager and a Leader). I'm still curious as to why Oil Slick, a character we haven't even seen on the show yet, is being released in the 3rd wave before characters that we've already seen on the show, and will probably have more appearances than him. Oh well, as long as I'm able to get ahold of at least all the one's I really want, if not all the one's I currently plan to get, I'll be happy.

    It would be cool if later on hasbro decides to make a leader class lugnut to go with leader bulkhead.

    Yeah, it would, but, as it is now, I personally don't see them doing it. That and to me, 2 Voyagers is more appealing than 2 Leaders. I'd rather save $40 than have show-accurate sized toys on my shelves. If we were also getting Voyager sized toys of Earth Megs and Ultra Magnus, there's a chance I would buy them instead of the Leader class versions, though having a Megatron and Ultra Magnus that have mouths that move is really appealing (which is also why I there's a possibility I'll still get Leader Bulkhead). The one odd thing, imo, is that Bulkhead appears to be a part of the first 3 waves. Usually a TF is only a part of 2 waves, and then is phazed out for something new. Hopefully this doesn't cause any other Voyagers to be short-packed. Especially Grimlock.

    Edit: Just noticed, but, this also prooves that Hasbro doesn't need to put Autobot infront of Grimlock's name, and that it was only a website thing. I'm also noticing slight differences between the photos on the packaging, and the official pictures we got from Toy Fair (usually they are the same one's used). Snarl's shoulder plates are turned around, and Jazz's nunchucks are still in their holders. Would be cool if they could be turned around to face the other direction (would make for a Rodimus kitbash from Jazz easier to accomplish).

    Unfortunetly not yet, but Botcon will hopefully yeild some kind of picture of him, even if it probably will be just a grey prototype. His hammer is going to be interesting to see transfered into toy form.

    Yeah, he was anounced at Toy Fair. Hopefully Sentinel Prime and Swoop get confirmed to be getting toys at Botcon, that way we know we'll be able to get all 3 Elite Guard members and all 3 Dinobots. Sentinel will most likely get a Voyager sized toy, and Swoop will most likely get a Deluxe sized toy, imo anyways. The one gimmick we can expect from Ultra Magnus's toy will be the moving mouth and voice, and possibly the ability to use the Headmaster gimmich that Bulkhead comes with, though I personally hope that each of the Leaders (or at least each Leader that can use the gimmich) will come with a Headmaster unit. That way you don't have to have Leader Bulkhead to use the gimmick. The only down side to that would be that the people who bought 2 if not all 3 of the Leader class figures would get multiple Headmaster units (though not a down side to me, as I wouldn't mind having a back-up just in case something happened to the one, or I wanted to have more than one figure with a Headmaster head on them at the same time).

    Hopefully we'll be seeing those wave three deluxes soon on ebay.
    We saw voyager prime before we saw BA and Ratchet right?

    Thats true, you never know whats gonna hit ebay next. Ebay doesnt go by the order of the waves. so we can expect wave 2 and 3 to be mixed in ebay.

    So far it has gone in order of the waves.

    After we saw everyone of wave 1, voyager opitmus starting show up.
    Then Ratchet and Blackarachnia, now we're getting Lugnut and Grimlock.


    Only exception would be those headless Lugnuts that were showing up early on.

    Yeah, I like the silver/teal on mine better than the super teal on the final version:

    It's unfortunate that he's all tealish, especially if this is the final version of him. And wearing pants next time you make a movie to post on the internet wouldn't be too bad either.
