I prefer Animated to Movie line 'cause it's not shellmasters

Some cartoon with big chins and a little girl that got beloved by fans and taken off TV to make way for a different show on another network. Yeah, that's fair.

Which one are we praising?
I'm referring to the Animated Voyager sized Megatron toy.

I agree with others in this thread. the Animated deluxe megatron from the 2 pack is awful & epic fail.

Sorry about that. My brain said Earth mode, but my hands typed Cybertron mode.

Could be worse. Could have been the Classics deluxe size two pack. Those were even worse.

I briefly encountered the classics two pack. I don't remember good things about it.

Yeah, I somehow wound up with two versions of that Megatron and three versions of the Optimus. Ugh. I really need to go through and thin out the unwanted parts of my collection.

The Prime in that set is under-appreciated. That Megatron is garbage though.

The weird thing is I grew to have a slight appreciation for the Megatron mold but I still effing hate that particular Optimus. And I literally have 3 of them.

That Prime looked effing terrible, but I always thought the Megatron looked kinda neat. I always wanted to get ahold of one, particularly that G1-colored 'Special Edition' one, that looked cool. Do people just hate on that mold because it lacked a hand?

Well speaking for me personally (and feel free to pm me about a trade for that Megs by the way), I just didn't like it because of how they handled the right arm. I'm not put off by the fact that it lacks a hand, I'm annoyed by what's there instead. They have this mish mash of crap that doesn't really make a claw or a gun or have any articulation... it's really just a mess. The rest of it is fine though especially in G1 esque colors.

The 2007 movie verse,ROTF,NEST,HFTD & RTS toys were better than Animated toys.

The DOTM Toy line was so horrible,that the Animated toys were more superior.

About the only most epic must have DOTM toys were leader sized Sentintel Prime & Leader sized Ironhide. everything else was epic fail,some were barely mediocre.
