    The only one I ever bothered getting was Frenzy as he didn't have any other transforming figure of him (apart from the weeny one that came with Barricade).
    There's usually always a better alternative of a character in another class than FAB, so apart from buying one for collecting's sake or if buying for a youngster, I don't give FABs much thought.
    That said I have been tempted by FAB Long Haul.

    I got the ROTF Starscream FAB, as I liked the look of it. I have no intention of getting any others. FAB Jolt is an epic pegwarmer at pretty much every store that sells TFs near me.

    My only FAB is Jetfire, I bought him because the leader is too big and I see thereĀ“s no intention in releasing a voyager version, and i gotta say I like him a lot. The only other FAB I wolud consider buying is Sideways, because of his accurate paintjob.

    Got all of them from both movies... some are a bit weak, others deceptively complex and unique.

    I think it was wise for Hasbro to have a secondary deluxe-sized line aimed for a slightly younger age group. I can see a lot of movie deluxes being frustrating for kids.

    I have a couple of them, TF1 Ironhide and Night Attack Megatron. I like them both, especially the Megatron.

    I got most of the Decepticons from the first movie, mianly on impulse or because they were the only thng on shelves for awhile. They'd be great for kids but compared to the standard TF toys they're garbage.

    I have the Starscream from each film. The only reason I have them is for my Starscream collection, otherwise I wouldn't even have those. They are not bad I just have no real interest in them.

    I still have Ramjet and Smokescreen and they still rock! :wink: 

    Bought 'em for the G1 homages.

    Also have Brawl (the green one). Along with Leader Brawl (the green one), Deluxe Brawl (the first green one), Legends Brawl, Titanium Brawl, and Robot Heroes Brawl. Never got around to getting the transformable card Brawl.

    Huh, I didn't think they were that popular. Interesting. :D 

    Thinking of picking up a ROTF FAB Jolt myself.
