    I have a 4 year old nephew who finds most regular TFs very difficult. I'm buying him (and probably my daughter) some Activators. They're absolutely perfect for them- and thus, neither awful nor pointless.

    I find the activators cute.
    Although the only one so far I would want to pick up is Starscream.
    Maybe if they made an activators Megatron, then I'd buy him and Optimus.

    I too like the activators. Neat little version of the big bots.

    Nothing beats "toilet mode"!

    I generally like your videos showing us things early. :) 

    But this one, man, it took me 4 mins and 50 seconds of saying "press the button already!"

    This video was way too long to get to the point.

    I like this activator though, it's a bit closer to what I was expecting these to be (jumpstarters, something that you press the button and it then ends up in robot mode on its feet all by itself). That would have absolutely ruled for this line.

    About the back kibble getting in the way of the chair; based on peaugh's review, I'm nearly certain that piece of the backpack can slide up a bit further than you have it.
    And I do apologize for bumping a thread that's close to a month old, but I just found it and wanted to point this out.

    This guy ain't bad. Not my fave but it's hard not to love a Bulkhead toy. His head is hilarious.

    Picked him up today. He's not a disaster but I do feel his translation to this size class is kinda lacking. Maybe if his 'wings' folded back more he'd be better to me. And that messy back end in alt mode is - well - I thought I'd missed flipping a panel or something to hide it. Also wish he had a little panel mount for his Autobot logo tampo - the gap down the middle of the chest seems a bit too deep and ruins that.
    But I'm being niggly now, and he really does look fun when placed with his Voyager and Leader version buddies on my desk. :p
