    Now that i have a bunch of animated toys I've noticed a weird pattern. These things have the ugliest sprue marks of any transformer line I've seen. They're usually huge and really ugly and all over a lot of the figures. Like no attempt was made to hide them on unseen edges or anything like that.

    Also just got prowl the other day and I think he's gotta be the best bike transformation out there.

    Ive just opened a box and my forgotten animated toys were stored in there....
    God, i missed my Swindel.

    I really feel hes just the perfect transformer to date.
    Looks perfect in both modes, easy but magical transformation and great gimmics.

    I forgot how much i love him!
    Back to deskbot he is :cool:

    Takara version of Animated Grimlock - less show accurate, but G1 toy colouring homages. And no silver/gold faction logos

    Heather Morgan just dumped a bunch of Animated production material on her Twitter
    https://twitter.com/Tubesmith/status/1660380249643728897?s=20

    Some of her commentary on things are scattered around in replies to people in the thread, but it’s worth checking out.

    Keyan Carlile also did a new video on the original Season 4 plans.


    I wonder what else is going to come up.
