Megatron's face is too dark(the rest should be darker and the face should be lighter) and no fusion cannon? Grimlock looks cool and looks like he has the same mouth gimmick or just an opening mouth

I'll definetly be getting Megatron and Grimlock. Bandit Lockdown on the other hand, will be an easy pass for me, though I will be getting the other two Deluxe versions of him, to go along with the origional one I already have. I'm going to rename them Mirage and Sizzle, and make them brothers of Lockdown. Here's hoping we get some non-vandalized versions of these pics.

Edit: Good to see some non-vandalized pics. I wasn't origionaly going to get any Activators, but now that I have Bumblebee, I actually like them. There are at least four more of them that I plan on getting:

-Grimlock
-Cliffjumper
-Megatron
-Ramjet

Getting Lockdown. Will wait for repaints of the other two as I've already got the larger versions of those two.
ActionMasterZod
They look nice, but the only activator I want is Starscream, and I already have him.
dark69
NICE i will be getting them all
panzerjedi
I'm sold on Grimlock.
shibamura_prime
Lockdown looks pretty snazzy in blue. I may have to pick that sucker up.
Icetron
Already planned to get Grimlock.

Still not interested in the Lockdown mold. Megs looks decent in robot mode though.

That's what I intend to do. I got the larger versions, and I want to keep with the main line, but I possibly just might get Lockdown...maybe.
artiepants
Megatron and Grimlock are actually pretty decent for their size, but that third one is just HORRIBLE!

Yeah, I prefer having a single version of each - so having Voyager Grimlock meaning I don't need to get Activators Grimlock so I'll wait for the repaint
Lion
I wasn't a big fan of the activators til I saw em at SDCC. Grimlock and Megs are must haves, Lockdown on the other hand, I'm still not sold...
G1Wheeljack
Megatron & Grimlock look nice, but I expected more from the Lockdown repaint(no poncho=).
B-Fox
Missed G1 Homage opportunity . They should have swapped the colors on Megs head to give him a white face and black helmet.

I like Bandit Lockdown but not his toy. Had these colors been used on the Deluxe repaint with the chainsaw attachement, I'd buy it in a second.
Jarodimus
Hrm. Megs is stuck in permanent bicep curl pose. Still looks great for the size though.

And my Cannonball's going to have a new crew member when Bandit Lockdown shows up!
j.a.f.o.
So wave 2 won't be in stores until late September, yes? And this wave, even later I take it...
MR.UPGRADER
Grimlock looks too good to be true!
Megatron looks great too!
And as for the new lockdown...

The car mode looks good but the robot, kinda lame.
Dinobot Nuva
Bandit Lockdown not only=major wtf but also major pass. The other two are sold, now bring on pictures of Ramjet and Cliffjumper.

Agreement.

Prefer Bandit Lockdown's deco over Blazing Lockdown's.

But the Activator mold is ... for lack of a better word ... weak.

That's what I was about to say-- Bandit Lockdown is Animated Cannonball to me.

Also, is his left eye scratched out with a black scar? Now he's even more pirate-y!

Anyways, you know me. These are are all bought.
NeoGutsman
Wow, very nice! I'm impressed with Megatron - no fusion cannon, but overall a very nice figure. Grimlock looks terrific, too. Lockdown looks a bit too chunky, but I may still get him. I'll pass on the bandit version, though.
defstar
Just may get Grimlock...poor Lockdown looks really bad...
Lucs
What's the deal with all the TFA Lockdown repaints? Did hasbro think he was gonna be a huge breakout character that fans would love. Well they may have been right but I feel like activators lockdown is the worst one of the whole bunch so far. Megatron and Grimlock, on the other hand, are pretty sweet looking IMO

EDIT: Yeah Bumblebee has a ton of repaints too but that's expected at this point. More seekers please!
General Magnus
These looks good. The only "meh" one is Lockdown. Megatron is rather cool, the lack of a fusion cannon does not bothers me.
MushroomPrime
No, they just know we all have man-crushes on Lance Henriksen.

And Bumble bee and Lockdown have the same amount of repaints, but Bee has more figs (Legends)
Pasaway
I don't like Grimlock's hands, but I gues it's not too bad.
I wish you could take the blades of Megatron like the leader version
either way both of them are going to be finding new homes at my place.

But Lock down, I'm not fond of this repaint or of the activator version of him. might get the orignal paint, but think I'm passing on this repaint.

Maybe you can just remove the cannon from his vehicle mode and peg it into the hole on his arm. *shrug*

Dropshot
Grimlock specially looks very good, but I'm not getting any of them.
Bumblethumper
Bandit Lockdown - fail on the colour scheme, but WIN on the name. lol....Bandit

The other 2?

Grimlock looks awesome. Possibly the best activator to date. I just can't wait.

Megatron, pretty decent - bot mode great, alt mode, not so great. Probably a buy just the same.
TCracker
Megatron - MINE
Firestorm
Dangit. I was going to skip Bandit Lockdown, but then people started comparing him to Cannonball. Now I have to get him so Cannonball can have a one-man crew.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna have to start collecting Activators now too...if they release an Activators Lugnut and Jazz, then that's it, the deluxes, voyagers and leaders go in storage for a while All the awesome, but at a fraction of the price (and shelf space)

I thought they had announced an activators Jazz? I could be wrong, maybe I'm thinking of Bumper Battlers or something...

I am so getting that Grimlock!

why box up voyagers Lugnut? he's the rite size in the activators line so is voyagers bulkhead

I don't have voyager Lugnut yet, although, to be honest, if they announced an activator version, I probably wouldn't buy the voyager at all.
Railguard
Eh, not interested in any of this. Hope you all like it though!!!
Dinobot Swoop
Oooo.... That Grimlock's a must. Megs is a 'meh' at most. Bandit Lockdown... Total pass. BTW, anybody reminded of G1 Slicer with those colors, or is it just me?
Dinobot Nuva
Change the black to gray and you've nailed it (kinda?).
DN
Zress Tayasu
that grimlock isn't impressing me. the only thing I'm seeing about that megs that's nice is that they didn't make him knock-kneed. not sure why they could get that one right for a sub-deluxe springloaded figure, but couldn't get it right for the $40 bells&whistles version...
kinda liking "bandit" lockdown though. the colors look good for it. reserving final judgement for the moment though.

I think Hasbro started believing the hype started on the boards, such as this one. If you ask me, Lockdown is the king of the overrated.

Case in point.
Deadend
Megs and grimlock are all kinds of win. Lockdown really needs to just stick to his deluxeader figure. That activators mold is just all kinds of ugly. His deluxe mold though repaint all you want. He rocks. Especially if each one has new weapons! His activators mold blows chunks though, I'm sorry.

I think it's because of the relativly small cast size, and that Hasbro are more focused on making the show's cast rather than randoms who don't appear anywhere since the show is rather prominent.

Wants Megatron.

There's a repaint of the deluxe toy and a repaint of the Activators toy. I fully expect that most of the molds will get repainted at some point whether they are crap or not.

And I think Activators Bulkhead is worse looking than Activators Lockdown although I own neither of their molds.
mordecai6
I was gonna skip this line altogether but now since I got starscream I'm definetely gonna get at least megatron
