    I'm sure we all have a soft spot for at least one mold that most others would consider inferior.


    For me, it's Energon Wing Saber. I know he's an absolute brick and that his only purpose is to join with one of the worst Prime's ever made, but... I still love him and just can't bear to get rid of him.


    Anyone else feel this way about a "bad" toy???

    BM Tankor. Beast Machines may get a ton of slating, and yes, many of the toys (Tankor included) look little to nothing like the computer models (or, more accurately, the models look nothing like the toys, but that's another argument).
    Quite a few of the toys look... odd, to say the least. But Tankor is absolute pure love. Both modes look fantastic, and he has excellent articulation all round. If he was redecoed in a current line right now, he'd still stand up against the other figures with ease - he's that good.

    Oh, blimey, yeah. The figure himself isn't that good, but the gravity-feed multishot missile launchers alone make it an absolute classic toy.

    Me aswell. I lost the big double-turret part, but I just love the little guy for no reason.

    Energon's Shockblast. I still call him Shockwave, even though that his left arm doesn't have good moment and that its hard for me to transform him into that base mode. I still like it.

    Sure he's crappy as far as Transformers go what with neither mode holding all of his add-ons and him not looking anything at all like his cartoon counterpart but the nostalgia for the guy gets the better of me.

    Optimus Minor- I just love the little guy even though his beast mode is ugly and his bot mode is mediocre. Energon Snowcat is really cool too. Also I don't get the hate for Titanium WW Prime and Megatron.

    I don't consider them BAD toys exactly, but a lot of folks don't care for them:

    Energon Grimlock
    Cybertron Thunderblast

    I have to say Night Slash Cheeter. Sure it's a BM toy and the transformation is rather simplistic but I love the toy so much I bought two along with Che with same color scheme to go with it (and I took me many trips to the stores to find one). I can sell every BM toy I have but NS Cheeter is one I'll keep.

    Tankor is NOT a bad toy!

    Thunderblast and Shockblast, might qualify for this list.
