You know what I'm talking about. You buy a new Transformer, you're convinced it's the most amazing toy ever, then later on the novelty wears off and you realize it's not all it's cracked up to be. I know there are a lot of Transformers that have remained cherished possessions, but others have not done so well with the passing of time. What's yours? For me, one figure I can name is my first Classics figure: Mirage. I was simply blown away by his level of articulation, which reminded me of a childhood favourite, G2 Smokescreen. Both his modes are aesthetically pleasing, but after a while... I just kinda lost interest in playing with him. I think the problem is that he's too flimsy. There's little satsfaction to be drawn from what feels like a stick figure, and his inanimate crossbow weapon doesn't do anything for me. While Mirage remains the reason I got back into the Transformers franchise, others have continued my interest.
