I think my new #1 favorite TF toyline is Animated. Officially replacing Transmetals.
What separates these two lines from the rest? Consistent excellence. Virtually every toy is a winner. In fact, the only toy I DON’T like in Animated (besides Bumblebee) is Sentinel Prime. He’s just… off. Too small and he doesn’t nail the characterization like the others. Bumblebee gets a pass because his upcoming toy looks to be a vastly superior replacement.
But other than that? GOLD. My only wish was for a real combiner. Safeguard doesn’t count. I’m talkin’ Menasor, Superion, Computron or Predaking.
At least I can dream.
