    Oh, so is this the Animated appreciation thread? Whatever, here goes.

    Ah, Animated. Such a strange creature. I’m still not quite sure if I like it. I never had much to show of it, and I have even less today. Just Bee, Slag (or whatever they called him that year), Cybertronian Prime, and the long gone Cybertronian Ratchet. My goodness I wish I’d kept that Ratchet. It was so much fun. Meanwhile Optimus was meh, Bee was a b!tch to transform (my first copy actually broke so I had to get a new one), and Slag-alike was okay. Looking back on the whole thing I’m not sure where it goes in my heart, just as I don’t know where to put these figures in my collection. I guess only time will tell, eh?

    The Legion figures for Animated are quite awesome. Unfortunately, Prowl is the weakest without proper shoulder joints, but is still nice.

    I really need to track down the Cheetor version of this mold. Absolutely adore the TransTech design nods.

    I finally started my Animated collection these last few months and I’m loving it just like re-watching the show again!

    Thus far I have the voyager Sunstorm and Activators Ratchet two-pack, voyager Atomic Lugnut, deluxe Lockdown, and Activators Bandit Lockdown and Soundwave.

    I absolutely plan on picking up more in the future.

    EDIT: I’m going for scale with a few versions of figures I need other size classes of.

    I know this is a few months too late, buuuuutttt...

    I believe both the deluxe Megatron and deluxe earth mode Optimus had spring-loaded waists so that you could have them fight each other with a sort of pull-back-and-let-go punching gimmick. Buzz Lightyear karate chop action style.

    Granted, this is knowledge that hasn't been thought of in thirteen years, but you sparked the memory in me.

    I know the Voyager Optimus Prime had a spring-loaded waist as part of an automorph gimmick, but I can't speak for the Deluxe version.

    Well today I got regular deluxe Bee in the mail!
    imabee.jpg

    I'm slowly but surely building my Animated collection. Thus far I have the Bee above, deluxe class Elite Guard Bumblebee with most of the gold paint removed and Lockdown, voyager class Sandstorm and Atomic Lugnut, and activators class Ratchet and Bandit Lockdown.

    I have a deluxe regular Ratchet on the way from a seller on here and will most likely be buying a huge lot from another member that will cover everything else I need except for Arcee and the Impossible Toys human figures.

    I got this for THREE DOLLARS. Amazing figure. I fell in love with the car mode and caved as soon as I saw a glimpse of the intuitive and incredibly enjoyable transformation. He doesn’t have his pipes but I don’t care, he looks fine without them.
