    Thank you for the review and all the photos! :)  I really like the paint job on this one, the mix between atomic symbols and World War styling really came out great! :)  Thanks again!

    Pretty neat, I'll see where I'm at financially and in terms of what Animated figures I need to get when it comes out. Though I do like this figure and approve of the repaint.

    Awesome repaint, can we get comparisons with the Original and with Shockwave?

    Eh, the more I see of this repaint, the more I don't like it. I'll more than likely go out and buy the original version. The teal-ish color does look nice though, and looks kinda similar to the color that was on the Lugnut prototypes, before it was changed for the production version.

    The cockpit teeth make it awesome. If I wasn't already completionist on Animated, that would be the only reason to buy this, since the new color scheme isn't by itself anything to write home about.

    Finally found this guy, and he was definitely worth passing over the original Lugnut; he looks fantastic with these new colors in both modes.

    Quick question for anyone else that has him: do you find that his left chest piece (cockpit) doesn't slide as far back as his right chest piece? Mine sticks forward a little bit..

    Remarks: Atomic Lugnut is a repaint of the first Animated Lugnut, so look there for the full review. Just a few words on the differences here. Personally I would have liked to see his version of Lugnut in the Animated series, mostly because the events described in his profile text sound pretty interesting. As for the figure itself, Lugnut has traded in his somewhat classic Decepticon paintjob (purple and teal) for colors that are (mostly) more realistic, a blue-grey with mustard-yellow, black, and red highlights and - hence his name - a big symbol for radioactivity on his mace, as well as black-yellow stripes on his fists / engines. In bomber mode he also sports a shark grin on the sides of the cockpit.

    No design changes to the figure, of course, (it's still awfully short for a Voyager-class figure) so it's only the paint job that differs. Personally I like this version a bit better than the first one, though RtS Lugnut is still the best version of Lugnut currently in existence. Paintjob-wise Atomic Lugnut and RtS Lugnut are actually closer than the two Animated versions, so in terms of looks I'd rank the three Lugnuts as follows: 1) RtS Lugnut, 2) Atomic Lugnut and 3) original Lugnut. Of course original Lugnut has the distinction of being the only one of them to actually appear in the TV series, which elevates him again.

    Bottom line: A nice repaint of Lugnut. Not a must-have for anyone who's already got the original or the RtS version, but if you don't own a Lugnut yet, this one is worth a look. That, and I like the idea of him leaving burning radioactive footsteps wherever he goes.
