    Have you ever played with a toy that is so god awful that it made a different figure look like plastic gold?

    For the last two weeks I was away on vacation and didn't bring any of my TFs with me, but we stoped on the way at a target and I got Octane and Supreme Prime. Having to chose between the two I obviously played with Octane more. But every time I would play with Prime I would always think "Ahhh I can't wait to play around with voyager Prime" And when I did go home and play with Voyager Prime it felt like the first time I held Masterpiece Prime.

    So has this ever happened to any of you guys?

    playplayplayplayplay, I said it too much.

    Payload vs any of the other movie figures I have. Same with Deluxe Megs compared to any of my other Animated figures.

    Only figures I have that I don't like, and after fiddling with them, the rest of my plastic crack is like sweet sweet relief.

    Crappy toys that give me a greater appreciation for some of the others:

    Armada Sideways
    Animated Lockdown
    Animated Starscream
    Alternators Optimus
    Most of the SWTFs

    Probably more, but these are the first ones to come to mind.

    Titanium Soundwave. Bought him at the same time as Classics Bumblebee. 'Bee looked even better in comparison.

    Legends class figures usually suck pretty bad to me.

    Then again, I've never bought one.

    Titaniaum Thundercracker is nowhere near as good as the classics seeker mold (such as the Classics/ Timelines/ Henkei Thundercracker)

    Around Christmas 2006 I came across some KO's and bootlegs. I will now never say hasbro figures feel cheap or like a KO. The plastic was so bad and felt so odd I thought I might catch a disease. It really gave me a new appreciation for Hasbro's plastic.

    In terms of mainline TFs made in the last ten years, Armada Sideswipe is, I think, the absolute pits. One of the stupidest-looking robot modes ever. I honestly can't believe how many times they repainted that pile of ass.

    MP Megatron

    It's surely a pretty good display piece but... heh... TOY? Not in a billion years!
