I met an awesome guy at Botcon from the TFCC Boards who was from the UK. Other than the ultra cool accent, he was great to talk too. He was saying he didn't know when TF Animated toys would even see a possible release date in the UK and it pissed him off. He bought a bunch of deluxes to take back with him. I hope he sees this news.

Yep, just been up my local TRU and bought the pack.

I dont know why but I was expecting the Animated figures to be made from a soft and bendy plastic. If I am 100% honest I would say they feel like cheap toys. They both suffer from somewhat floppy legs, probably due to the styling of thin upper legs and stonking great lower legs.

Picked up the 2 pack at TRU Leeds today. Aside from the battle damage I'm really liking them. The movie line is dead, long live Animated!
