I don't much like the decos on Prime and Bee there but the other two look good for simple TF toys. My friend's kid kept messing about with my Voyager Ironhide (leaving him in a mangled have transformed, mostly mess of crap that a lot of kids seem to leave TFs in) so I might buy him that one there to keep his mitts off my toys.

I bought the first wave of Activators for my 3 year old son cause he loved the animated ones so much and I think they are awesome. Besides Bee having a locking problem they are great figures considering how simple they are.

I have never been interested in the Activators.
I guess they are great for little kids that would have a hard time with the somewhat over-complex transformations we are seeing on a lot of modern transformers toys, but the target audience for this product has never been cleanly defined.
On the one hand they are durable and easy to transformer which makes them ideal for little kids. On the other hand they keep releasing repaints and variations which is something that a collector would be more interested in yet the lack of movie-authentic transformations and the kibble that "decorates" a lot of them toys would be a turn off for collectors.
Its kind of a "neither here nor there" things with them and it has always bothered me.

I actually love the little Activators--TFA totally sold me on the fact that the toyline could be small, easy to transform, but still pretty cool.
Starscream looks adorkable. Though he's outnumbered by those Autobots. :/
HK, bah, he's worth three lousy Autobots anyway. /delusional

Just passed up Ironhide and Starscream at Walmart 30 miutes ago. If they were smaller like the Animated ones I would get them.
