    Looks like the site is down currently. It’s strange since when i go look for the labels I can’t find them. I’ll look into this later. Thank a bunch!

    edit: Link says page can’t be found

    I did get a positive answer though! I messaged toyhax on Twitter the other day and they said they won’t be on the site but if I email them what set I want they can sell them that way.

    OK, I have a question.
    Ever since it was new out of the package, my Blurr has had an issue with his shoulder. When I swing the black arm hinges up, his left shoulder locks in perfectly, while the right one will not lock, and the little black hinge will pop out from its nook behind the chest every time I move the arm. Is this a known issue, and is there a way to fix it?

    I bought this a few years back, and since my other Animated stuff was stored in a box before that, Cliffy here just got added to the box.

    Now I’m going through everything I have, and selling off everything without big feels to it — almost all of the Animated stuff is staying!

    So, I think I’ll finally crack this open, and enjoy that cool headsculpt and appreciate this fig next to Earthrise Cliff.

    I just went through some Animated stuff this evening and transformed my Blurr. No looseness problem. On mine the right shoulder is just about right, and Blurr’s left shoulder locks in really tight. Gotta push it back and out to unlock it.

    Really enjoying repacking all this stuff. Every transformation is still quite impressive and very satisfying.

    animated was one of the more fun toy lines that Hasbro put out, engineering wise I still say Prime is the best on that, just from Bulkhead alone

    Gotta disagree. Prime was the beginning of the cost cutting. Animated was great. Prime was really good.

    Yeah agreed. Just look at the FE figures vs the regular ones. If you're talking FE only though, that is definitely one of the heights of Transforming figure lines for your money.

    Scored a Lugnut super cheap. Excited about it since he’s one of my favorite characters from the show.

    Well, I did crack open that Activators Cliffjumper (^^^above^^^).
    And took him with me on a trail to a waterfall today. My wife and I had fun taking some pics with toys in ‘em!

    Got a spare Deluxe Bumblebee coming in. I may turn him into Cliffjumper.

    My New Swindle i got today broke right out of the shipping box. I really wish someone would 3D print done arm joints for him. I would rather not spend $40 on another Swindle.

    I don't think 3D printed parts are strong enough to be load-bearing joints. That stuff shatters pretty easily.

    It depends on the material you use and the printing method.
