    I have to say Lockdown is pretty bad. Crappy leg poseability, legs kept alling off and how boring and overated he was.

    Out of the one's I have, I'd have to say Acitvators Bumblebee, but even then, it's not a bad toy, it's just the worst out of the 6 I currently have. Out of all the one's I've seen at least pictures of, I'd have to say Voyager Starscream. Though the Skywarp repaint is much much better, and is something I plan on getting. Something about Starscream's color scheme doesn't sit right with me, and not because it's "not G1 accurate", but if they had gone with a darker/grayer color like on the show, I would have liked it. As-is he's a bit too light and bright, imo. As for Lockdown, he might not be perfect, but he's a pretty great toy, and is one of the better ones of the line.

    I have two nominations.

    Animated Snarl! I would go as far to say he has practically has no articulation.
    I'm exaggerating... it's more like "limited" articulation.

    Animated Bumblebee. His proportions are really off, huge head and his articulation is pretty poor too, but leagues better than Snarl.

    I love Lockdown. He's one of my favorites so far.

    I am rather disappointed with Bumblebee. Everyone else maintains some semblance of scale (even voyager Lugnut and Bulkhead are "scaled down" in scale), while he is too big. I don't like his arms much... I don't even fool with his legs, since one of his roof pieces falls off EVERY time I try and move it... I don't dislike him, but I don't really like him much either.

    That said, as a whole, Animated has been a pretty fun series. The cartoon's fun, and i like the toys.

    Voyager Grimlock, dude is extremely lucky he rocks in the show or else he'd be gone by now.

    Only good thing about it is... well he's better than the Classics-thing.

    Personally, I like him for the following reasons:

    1. He looks awesome in both modes.
    2. His detailing is really good.
    3. His paint apps are good.
    4. All of his joints are nice and tight, but not too tight (no loose ones on mine).
    5. He looks great with not only the rest of my Animated figures, but the rest of my collection.
    6. I really like his head sculpt.
    7. Overall he has a lot of character built into him.

    I love all mine. Grimlock and Blackarachnia are both really great.

    Well, for me it's more like least best than 'worst', but I gotta go Blackarachnia.

    Voyager Megs, Prowl, and Ratchet get honorable mentions. These guys' designs don't suck (except for the questionable alt megs ship), the physical toys just have issues. Blackarachnia feels like she's made out of pipecleaners, voyager Megs' cannon is fundamentally flawed, Prowl is nice except too small and in his alt mode he is entirely top heavy and flimsy legged (looking at you too universe powerglide), and the Ratchet toy seems a bit bland.

    Yup.

    Lockdown has a great vehicle mode.

    Deluxe BB is really fun in robot mode and posable despite how limited he looks.

    Snarl just looks awesome/funny.

    But Voyager Megs is not fun, has hampered articulation, does not look good and has a crap vehicle mode. EPIC FAIL.

    I've got all the regular figures (no Activators or anything) except Ultra Magnus and Blitzwing and while I like all of them, I think my least favorites are Voyager Megatron and Bumblebee.
