    Just got Blitzwing, er do the tabs inside his legs actually lock in? Having a bear of a time keeping them in position for jet mode.

    God I love the way Animated Voyagers are so lanky, yet compact so effortlessly into vehicle mode. (With possible exception to Lugnut, but he wasn't meant to be lanky anyway.)

    My collection may not grow as often as others, but this deal was one I couldn't pass up, loose complete Blitzwing for 15$, definitely well worth the cost.

    Well I prefer Skywarp over TC, but I know how you feel.
    I just picked up Skaywarp on Ebay, and I was all set to start looking for Thundercracker...
    TFCC really should make this a subscription figure, or something.

    I'm so jealous of anyone who has the Stunticon Job boxset. I want one so bad but the prices are outrageous.

    You really have a way with pics, Maz. That bot mode pic of black Prime just looks so... regal. Now I want that too.

    Trying to complete my Animated collection. I just got me a Samurai Prowl. Another awesome figure. I wish Hasbro would continue making Animated style figures. They truly are unique and much better looking than Generations figures IMO.

    The Animated Stunticons are amazing. I've only just opened Wildrider and Dragstrip so far but they are just spectacular.

    I'm finally getting around to picking up animated figures. I've always loved the designs, but when they were in stores I was in a bout of not collecting. I'm mainly picking up odds and ends, like elite guard bumblebee, freeway jazz, the cheetor repaint/retool of blurr, and so on. It's not going to be the most conventional display of animated characters, but I love them!

    Hey Maz, you can switch the thrusters on those wings around so that you have the nice side facing front!

    I have noticed a theme or two in my Animated photography - some of these are old but demonstrate how I seem to be falling back on certain styles from time to time.

    Running: Because Animated figures generally lend themselves to flexible poses, I tend to try making them run.

    Mulitples: There are so many repaints that multiples are easy to come by.

    Look into my eyes: The face sculpts are so expressive that having them look into the camera is a must.

    Why did this line have to end? It was the G1 for a new generation. Such cool characters realised in plastic better than most things that came before or have come since.

    Amazing pictures, Pete :thumb 

    Blurr is rising to the top of my Animated list of favourites a little more each day.

    All the best

    Cheers Maz.

    Blurr is probably one of my all time favourite transformers from any line.
