I believe this thread would be more useful if you also stated where you got them, that way it might help someone who lives in the area identify the stores that has them.

My most recent purchase was Animated Voyager Optimus Prime @ Wal*Mart in Porterville, CA.

Last today, and probably for the next week or so, from same Wal*Mart as before (though they've moved the new stuff to an encap and were nearly OUT of everything new.. the movie figs still rule the aisle, collecting dust)...

*Activators Bumblebee

And, you know, I got Bumblebee largely for my youngest, who loves the character and the car mode, but the Deluxe figure is a royal pain in the butt to transform. The Activator, though, is near -perfect. I actually like the figure MORE than the Deluxe.

Yeah, though i expected the spring to do more than it actually does. And the hands/doors don't do it for me.

My last tf's: I don't have a clue when: TFU LEGENDS WAVE 1: Kmart, perth, WA.

Okay, today's mini-haul, mostly for my girls, mind you.

* Activators Buklhead - who is not Lugnut
Not nearly as good as Bumblebee, unfortunately. Not awful, but the
vehicle mode is pretty sad.
* Robot Heroes Rattrap and Megatron
* Universe Legends Onslaught
* Universe Legends Starscream

There is an activators Lugnut? Since when did that happen?

Since never. I would like to see one though.



I nabbed Leader Megatron and Bulkhead a few days ago. I love Bulkhead's "chair mode", and Megatron is one of the best Megatrons I own. I just wish there weren't random paint splatters.

I'm really starting to hate the "Try Me" option. I don't like the thought that a young kid could've touched my figures with the same finger he stuck up his nose. Plus the other Megatron on the shelf with mine had food smeared on it. And thinking long-term, all MISB figures with batteries included will have acid corrosion in a few years. I hope that Hasbro drops this option in the near future.

Ani Bumblebee and Lockdown.

Should i buy deluxe Cybertronian prime or hold out for the voyager? ive nothing particularly against either figure, Its just that i already have a deluxe Prime from the cla 2 pack and owning several Primes seems a bit odd.

If you want my opinion, skip Cyb. mode Prime and get Voyager Prime. A bit more expensive, but well worth it IMO! And of course he'll hold the two Animated Deluxe Prime's axes (may seem a tad small though), if it suits your fancy...

Meh, I like all the Primes (cept Roll out). I'd list them like this:

1st: DX Battle Damage Box Set Prime

2nd: Tied between DX CYB, and Voyager Earth Prime

Speaking of Voyager, i just got him yesterday, Kmart, Kardinya, perth, WA. 2 Left.

I like Activator Bulkhead's alt. mode. Sure, it's deformed, but i think it fits well with the whole Animated look ( i'm not going to use kiddified, coz i don't think ani is 'kiddified')

Oh, and anyone got a pic of the chair mode, i can't get mine into the respective mode.
