Love or Hate for Animated Toys!

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.

I have to say that I haven't enjoyed a TF line as much as Animated since Beast Wars came out. Granted, I liked BW because, in general, I like animals more than vehicles, but I think the style of Animated is just wonderful. I don't think there's a single Animated figure I'm particularly disappointed with. I certainly can't say that for BW.

Alright, what the hell, I'm in:

Love it: Shockwave. As others have stated it has four solid different modes and pulls them all off pretty well.

Hate it: The jet twins. Seriously, I gave these to a coworker's kid and never looked back.

Animated Shockwave could easily be the most impressive faction changer I've seen. His body so completely changes that I wouldn't even know he and Longarm were the same dude if I didn't know already.

It's curious you mention the jet twins. I was just fiddling with mine yesterday, and was musing on how much they kind of suck.

In fairness to the twins, the characters didn't wind up sucking as much as I expected them too but the toys were just all kinds of epic fail.

No doubt. I liked the twins on the show, but the toys....

I mean, I kind of like Safeguard, but the combined jet mode is just two jets stuck together, and not even very well.

I agree.

Animated shockwave's toy is pure awesome.

I Did a custom/kitbash on the animated shockwave toy where I added a extra 5th alt mode. complete with a new ravage styled beast head.

Please check out my custom/kitbash animated shockwave 5 changer toy compliments of my U-tube page link below:

I totally want to see that fifth mode, but I'll need to wait until I leave work.
