We also received new size classes and price points, one of which was the Fast Action Battlers, or FAB for short. The range of "FAB" consisted of cheap easily to transform simplistic interpretations of the Movie characters which where slightly larger than a Deluxe but sold at the same price point. Each one of them featured some sort of action gimmick and could be transformed in just a few quick steps, hence the name "Fast Action Battlers". The line returned with Revenge of the Fallen in the form of repaints and new molds.
Seibertron.com now has galleries of all 18 of the ROTF FABs, which you can view by clicking here or on the corresponding images below! The following list is sorted by character and not the original release.

The funny thing is that this cheapo deluxe-sized version of Megatron is more screen-accurate than the full size Leader toy!

Top notch galleries as always, looking forward to seeing more.

I rather like the Fast Action Battlers. They're fun, simple Transformers that make me feel like the transformations of the old school Transformers isn't a lost art. There's something to be said for pulling the arms out, legs out, and flipping the head over. They're not very poseable, but they're still fun toys to have. They're like giant Legends class figures!
I really like the artwork on the packaging. Do we know who the artist is?

Still, that's the only non-legend ROTF Megs I own, as I've largely given up on the Bayniverse toys. On one that I left in Megs' colors, I hacked out a little of his left bicep so his forearm can move forward at the elbow. An all-around fun toy for amateur kitbashers.
