    A lot of times I buy a transformer, bring it home, transform it and think "this isn't even a fun toy, not worth the money", then it gets put into a bin never to see light of day again.

    Which makes it oh so much better when you bring home a transformer that is fun to transform, not a huge hassle and doesn't break apart.

    So which Transformer in your collection can you say was worth the money you paid for it?

    DOTM Sideswipe, I was skeptical after hearing everyone glaring reviews of him but when I got him home I realized its easily the best Movie Sideswipe I own ( I own each mold sans HA)

    DOTM Jolt as well, hes just such and awesome little figure, even with those shitty arms

    ROTF Ravage, Chockobo mode, nuff said

    Probably ROTF LDR Prime since I never thought that he would be that good or Battle Hooks Prime because I thought that I would hate it.

    Dotm Jolt. I thought that I would hate him,but he's actually pretty fun. I use him as Camshaft since I still like the Rotf version better. I actually think he's the first Dotm figure that has a HARDER transformation than the original :lolol

    Honestly... Masterpiece Rodimus (TRU) and DOTM Ultimate Optimus Prime... A lot of people have issues... But I really like them... Especially Rodimus... I can't mess with him enough!

    PE Reflector. Most fun I've had messing with a figure (or set of figures in this case) in a long time.

    Generations Wheeljack, HFTD Terradive, ROTF Dirge and all of my Animated toys fit that bill.

    The Seekers. Henkei Convoy. Sidearm Sideswipe. DOTM Bumblebee (even after 50 or so times of transforming from robot to camaro and back, it still transforms neatly back to either mode).

    $20 for Grapple was a pretty good deal. I wish I picked up Inferno now since people are saying he's even better.
