    nope, there are a few, especially sunstorm and smokescreen that don't belong, especially smokescreen before the alt mustang mold

    Alt Wheeljack/Grimlock is curiously absent from that list.

    Animated Sunstorm? C'mon...

    RID Sideburn should be on there. And I never found MP-5 to be that bad.

    personally, I was more afraid of breaking that thing (mp-5)

    I would agree with most on the list though
    they are quite accurate though I must say that I don't have all of the molds on that list

    I usually don't transform with the help of instructions and I took about 1.5 hours for MP-5 and Leader Class OP ROTF. I'm sorry if my time clocked sends me to the retarded league

    movie ironhide was a bitch to me cause i wasn't sure if i was doing the waist right

    Otherwise, the other mentionable hards for me include

    1) BT Meister RX-8
    2) ROTF Mixmaster (this one with the claws was insane)

    Meister is one of the easier Binaltech/Alternators molds.

    The Ford Mustang is hard.

    I agree about Mixmaster, though. I hate that toy with a passion.

    Leader Brawl hard to transform, really?! I love my leader Brawl and i find him to have one of the simplest transformation for a movie leader. I cant say leader in general because animated leaders were pretty simple as well. I also do not agree with ROTF Prime. I found that toy to be hard to learn but once i learned the transformation its easy.

    I don't think Animated Sunstorm or MP Prime should be on the list. Fairly easy transformations IMO.

    I also don't agree that the Alt. Mustang mold was difficult. I transformed Grimlock from robot and back without instructions and only using pictures from the web as reference.

    These kind of lists vary greatly from person to person though. To each his own.

    i think the hard part about brawl was trying to get hsi hands to fit under the tank
    that was always very bad for me

    you really have to angle the wrists at the right angles, otherwise no matter how hard you try they won't align

    BT meister is one of the easiest huh?
    oh well. he was my first BT so i might find it easier now. i'm only left with the impression that it was difficult. should try again one of these days.
    otherwise i've gotten myself hound and skids and they were pretty manageable

    glad to hear that others share my sentiments about ROTF mixmaster

    That list is flawed. There are other figures that earned their place as genuine pains in the ass.

    I think Alternators Grimlock/Wheeljack belong on that list. Though I haven't had a hard time with them, I've heard some say the MP Seekers weren't very easy (none were bad for me, but they felt flimsy and fragile while transforming them). I think both Leader Prime molds could be on there, and I think I remember complaints about the first Movie Leader Megs toy too.

    I can't comment on the entire list, as I haven't transformed every figure on it, but I will say that if I were to make such a list and having misleading instructions earned a figure a spot, it may as well be a list of the easiest figures to transform as well.

    Brawl? Sunstorm? Smokescreen? What the hell?

    Granted, I have none listed, but dude! Sunstrom was about complicated as a Deluxe (based on reviews). Brawls may have been a bit of challenge, but not too bad (based on reviews). 'Screen is the only one that may belong, but what about Wheeljack/Grimlock? I've heard that thing is a total BITCH to transform.

    I'm glad to see ROTF Mixmaster... that's one pain in the ass toy to transform. Also ROTF Rampage is a damn pain...
