Bulkhead will only be too large to display if you can't display something of a Voyager size or bigger. (about 8") He's definitely bulky, but not really tall. By comparison, L. Bulkhead stares into Cybertron Leader Megatron's cockpit with both figures at full height. But do get him! You can then decide what you want to do with the extra pinkish piece of plastic that's included with him, AKA the Headmaster unit!;)

Is Prime ever going to get a firetruck rear accessory? Does he need one?

Technically he doesn't even use the firetruck unit in the show. He usually carries a different trailer depending on the situation.

I just got my first Animated toy. Prowl, and he is *awesome*.

Though I CAN'T transform him back into bike mode! Can anyone help?

EDIT: I really like this toy, but I can't figure out who to get next. How's Voyager Starscream?

Turn his waist around. Odds are you are using the wrong legs.

Voyager Starscream is great, but I know some people who don't like it because it's almost completely Automorph-based.

If you thought Voyager Starscream was automorph, you won't like Activators Starscream. Who is full of Win, I might add.

I got Animated Leader Megatron. That Is one seriously kick ass toy.
Come on and wind me up.

I ALMOST got Activators BB today, but I decided to save my money and wait to find a Tankor instead.
No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Well, I can't blame you for wanting a classi- uh Universe toy, but Activators Starscream is so cool I'm thinking of buying an army of them and painting them like the clones.

Agreed. I'm going to skip making Thundercracker though considering an offical release is coming.

Agreed. Activators Starscream is great. Just wish the legs would stay put better in jet mode, and that the ball-jointed neck was more versatile. He can either look slightly to the side, or twist his neck just too far to that same side; there's no in-between range and it's frustrating.

No, Activator.

And, similar to how I've been reminded before, that was found by way of this site's checklist.

Just got Prowl, Love him except for his legs when transforming.
The right leg keeps falling off!
All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.

Actually, if you painted that purple, and enlarged the plate things at the shoulders, you could get a pretty good Vehicon Jetstorm. Yeah, Scrap BH. Though i'll still beat the living s*** out of ya.;)

if I decide to get another Animated toy, it'll be a tie between Magnus or Sidecar Armor Prowl, since I loved the entire Samurai armor he had while working with Lockdown....

Haven't been here in a while...bought my first Animated toy in a good while, Oil Slick. Fun stuff. Let down only slightly by the arm articulation, but overall very pleased.

Going after the rest of Wave 3 next, even though I didn't originally plan on Soundwave and Snarl.

I have to ask, but WHEN ARE WE GETTING OMEGA SUPREME?

It's not my fault. It's the cartoon's. They made him look too awesome, and though I'm not a fan of big sizes I'm willing to dish out the cash for whatever size he'll be in.

I've been asking that for awhile too. It'll be one of the most accurate G1 incarnations since Rumble_Frenzy made his! I love his version too, made me wish I had thought of that!:clap:

Picked up Voyager Prime at Target on Sunday. I love him! I just can't put him down. He looks so badass with his faceplate up, his axe and water cannon on his back, and the 2-pack axe in his hand. He is quite possibly my favorite out of the Optimus toys I own.

Got my first animated figure today, deluxe Lockdown [yeah, pretty late into the game]. Very cool, nifty transformation and a surprisingly poseable robot mode. Left leg pops off the ball joint regularly but it can be remedied. Love the double elbow joints.

Onwards for more!
Few stuff in the UK to trade/sell. Measly sales thread.
