    there's also a hidden joint where the black midsection meets his chest, so you can bend his body into a more show accurate shape in Shockwave mode.

    WOW!!!

    That's an awesome haul you got there! :thumb 

    Transformers Animated will always be one of my personal favorites... It was a very cool cartoon with a lot of G1 Easter Eggs in almost every episode and the toys were amazingly close to being screen accurate... Helluva line there!

    I'll never part with my Animated collection and here's a pic of my favorite Animated toy signed by by DJW...

    Before today all I had was Arcee and Shockwave. Today Voyager Optimus, Soundwave, and Lockdown arrived. Animated is officially my favorite TF line :D  I'm having trouble putting them down... They're all really great figures.

    I loooove animated now, and the takara Blurr is the only one I have now.
    I think animated Blurr is one of the most aggressive, bold, aerodynamic, sexy car that hastak has EVER made. When my buddy brought his over to show me I had to have one.

    That said, I'm constantly looking to trade stuff for more animated.

    Now I'm looking for rodimus, lock down, Magnus, shockwave, and blitzwing.

    Dude, get an autotrooper. Fisitron is only meh but the trooper is stunningly good-looking and fairly cheap for an exclusive.

    Blackout is pretty good too. I got him for around $50 shipped and don't regret it. That's not bad for a takara voyager.

    Animated's my personal favorite- almost had a blackout arranged then the deal fell through- i'll get it some day, but it's not a priority.

    To complete the main us release line(no botcon stuff) deluxe class and up all i need is voyager megatron and then leaders bulkhead and roadbuster. Voyager megatron is easy enough to find at good prices but the two leaders not so much. Other than those three i have all the repaints and all the store exclusives like the yellow ratchet, the purple shockwave,etc.

    Wow. 50 with shipping? That's a great deal!

    I haven't anything close to that yet. Maybe Mech Ideas will save the day.

    GET ONE! Yes it's a repaint - but it's a really great repaint! I only have one and love it. All the botcon figs are my favorites and have a place of honor in the display.

    GET ONE! Yes it's a repaint - but it's a really great repaint! One of the only "Ironfist" figures out there. All the botcon figs are my favorites and have a place of honor in the display.

    GET ONE! Yes he's not to scale and might cost a bunch - but he's really great! Looks great, cool transformation, fun figure.

    But I feel ya on the cost of these. I believe I did a bunch of hunting and comparison shopping on eBay before I pulled the trigger on any of these figures.

    I'm still in the "poor college/grad student" phase so I'm budgeting the money I've got saved up for my plastic crack.

    Fellow Animated collectors, finally I got all Legends/EZ figures. Last week I got "Prowl Smoked Clear" and today I "Starscream Purple Clear" toy arrived. I am very happy with this achievement and want to tell to people that I know would understand and be happy with me :D 

    The only downside is that now I want more Animated toys.

    I still haven't figured out why they haven't sold the unreleased Animated figures under the Generations banner.

    I mean, it's a freaking Optimus Prime with a jetpack, and a Bumblebee with a cool weapon pack thing! Isn't that basically what Beast Hunters is?!

    Sweet! :thumb

    for serious!

    everytime the thread updates, I look up the price of Wing Blade Prime, Blackout and Hydro Bumblebee online. currently $65, $90, and can't find anywhere.

    Good buy! :D

    yeah, I figured that out after I typed it. I was looking for hydrodive bumblebee which would have been the US version instead of jetpack bumblebee.
