This one's been out for a while actually -- Saw this on Wal-Mart shelves a couple weeks ago.

Best since G1 in my opinion, wipes the floor with Unicron Trilogy. The animation takes adjustment -- There are still times here and there it bugs me, but for the most part it has grown on me. What it lacks in art style, however, it makes up for in story, acting, and actual enjoyable humor for a chan...

If I may submit TCA for whom I volunteer. We have our own RPG there as well. optimusprime who is a member here owns that website. Active community, rpg, news coverage, toy discussions, and the "G1 Cartoon Shrine" including episode talkback threads.

To link as you see fit, thank you!

Ya know, it'd be interesting if someone tried to pull a relatively cartoon accurate version.

Weird, maybe futile, but interesting. :D

The Seekers, as a group. Though we've seen multiple incarnations of Skywarp/Thundercracker/Thrust/etc. in previous incarnations (Unicron Trilogy), we haven't seen them as a cohesive unit (that I'm aware of) since G1. I'd love to see the Starscream/Skywarp/Thundercracker trio reunited in Animated, wi...

I'm a bit behind on Animated, but what I've seen so far has not been intrusive upon the plot. Grimlock nodding to his G1 self, the Witwickys barely making a cameo, etc. I have really enjoyed those G1 references. Hard to make the fans happy though...People have been complaining for so long about the ...

Niiiice. Reflector has always been such an odd little trio. Wouldn't mind getting him -- Mine has gotten well worn over the past couple of decades.

Ooooh Megs looks dadgum good. Definitely on my must have list. He will be added to the growing Megatron collection my wife has. :D

Ya know I haven't seen a pic of BA in robot mode yet, really curious as to what she's going to look like.

With any luck, by 2015, we'll get a Headmaster Arcee!
I read on a TF wiki that there was work on a Chromedome repaint as Arcee once upon a time, but it was scrapped. Can't say I'm sad about that one.

I would like to see a reasonably cartoon-accurate official toy though.

It's odd but I haven't seen it as meriting great attention just yet. Look at this way -- What has been ridiculously cheap for many years is not somewhat less really cheap. Not really a big deal.

Interesting insight. That definitely places the situation in question in better context. You want a glorified job writing for Hollywood, you wind up instead penning the words behind a 20-minute toy commercial instead, one gets bitter fast.

and your vague insinutation that anyone who does dislike any work they've done is an unqualified drop-out just makes you sound like a prick. Not the intention by any means.

Or is this just a typical internet "somebody disagrees with my opinion, so rather than deconstruct it using facts/reasons/scathing humour, I'm just going to call them names" thing?

Yeah, I just picked up Premium Barricade during lunch break today. He was the only one on the shelf. Bumblebee doesn't look any different except for the head (judging by pic), whereas Barricade had more detail differences. And the head is just from Stealth 'Bee, which hardly looks movie accurate.
