What are they? Like Animated fast action battlers or something?

Either way, they look pretty good. I'd go for them.

I've liked these ever since we saw them at Toy Fair. I'm wondering if this version of Bumblebee will look more in scale with the regular Animated deluxes and voyagers. I was really hoping for an Activator version of Prowl, too.

Oh, and to answer the question, yes, these are like FABs, but they are basic-sized instead of deluxe, and you push a button and they transform.

I've also heard that they have lights and sounds, but I don't see anything on the packaging about that, so maybe that was just a rumor.

99 cents. And 25 dollars for shipping. Thanks but no thanks.I know its coming from china but thats still a lot of money. I will just wait untill these figures hit stores in june and i will buy them all then. Ebay is joke. I will never buy anything of of ebay ever again. I got screwed to many times from that site. I once bought the Classics Ultra Magnus vs Skywarp set from ebay for 45 dollars and the shipping was 15 dollars. Never got it in the mail from the seller. I went on amazon.com and i bought the same thing for 30 dollars and 4 dollars shipping. And i actually got it in the mail.

They're actually only a little bit bigger than... LEGENDS. so there's no way they could have lights and sounds, sorry ;]

So theyre not only jumstarter-esque, they are also tiny, but fully poseable.
holy cow, just looked at my movie legends and i'm wondering... why couldn't THESE do THAT?

I think I kind of like these, the only problem I see is the ugly packaging.

Do you remember the flip changers from BW and MW? They’ll be like that.

I think your thinking about the Cyber slammer esc figures they’re making, which are supposed to have sounds and junk.

These toys seem to fit better with the Animated style.

Not bad! I probably won't get these, since I only need one figure per character, but these look like quite a step up from the movie Fast Action Battlers. Working Bumblebee's trigger into his siren was a clever touch. These look quite surprisingly toon-accurate for quick transformations.

These don't look bad, a bit bigger than Deluxes? :shock:
They won't hurt the wallet so much, so I may be getting some.
It's kinda amazing that they look superior to the Movie stuff, you know the small bots.

ugly packaging is never a problem, you can either store it, burn it, bin it, shred it, its the toy that counts, good packaging is merely a bonus.

Apparently these things are the succsessors to FABs.
I doubt I will get em.
I am planning to focus more on the deluxes when the toys come out.
All of the deluxes look awesome.
Especially BB.
I cant wait.
=P~

Not too thrilled about these ones. Maybe when I see them on the shelf they'll look better.

Agreed, it is kind of blah. The packaging doesn't look as good as the deluxes and voyagers. Maybe it's not that big of a deal, but I think they could make them look much more attractive. I see Ben 10 junk which I've no interest in, but it's a similar aesthetic and the packaging makes them seem that extra bit more desirable.

People compare activators to Movie FABs, and those also had horrible packaging. Part of the problem is all that yellow. Hasbro need to hire designers who understand how to colour coordinate properly.

With ebay you always have to factor the shipping in as part of the price. A lot of the time the seller will build profit into the shipping so they can start the auction for almost nothing. So long as you're paying attention, it makes no difference.

Ah, yeah, Neko, I think you're right. I'm starting to get all the extra "junk" mixed up. However, I could see me getting this little version of Starscream just to have him hang out on my desk at work. :wink: He looks fun and represents Animated Starscream well, and if he DID get stolen I wouldn't care too much.

Why cant people just wait untill these figures hit stores this summer. Its going to be fun saving up money untill june then going to target or where ever you go and fill up a shopping cart full of them. By the way, The date says june 22nd they come out. Thats a sunday. Is that the ship date and they will be in on a monday?

That's an easy answer for me.....My stores will not get them. They never do! There has not been a TF in Target OR Wal-Mart since before last Thanksgiving! Everyone at both stores that I have spoken to in S&R have told me to not expect ANY Animated figures to show up on the shelves until MAYBE...and they emphasize MAYBE....Halloween..and even that is dubious at best!
