    As a postlude or addendum to the Epic Fail thread, who are the guys that everybody else got wrong? In other words:

    Who is the Transformer that many will trash that you actually love?

    (and/) OR

    Similarly, who is the one that everybody else seems to love that you dislike?

    I LOVE ROTF Blazemaster. I understand why people hate it, but I think the 'bot mode looks amazing....and I love how the bird aesthetic just comes together really well for it.

    I figured this had been covered at some point in time, but this seems like a slightly different context. Either way, I appreciate the link.

    The one everybody hates: ROTF Devastator. I love the figure. I collected the G1 guys as a child and looked forward to the "update." While it was disappointing that the individual figures don't transform, the playability of them for small children was extraordinary. They are tough and stay in vehicle mode without any problem. The gestalt is also quite cool.

    Yeah I loved Devastator and is on a perfect scale for legends figures.

    I think the paint apps could have been better, and I wish it had a little bit more poseablility. (Basically I wish I could pose him on all fours like in the movie but his head doesn't move to get the right pose)

    Outside of that I love the figure.


    It's so perfect it's sick. I have one of the twins sticking out of his mouth as if he is hitting Devy in the face and the other twin in one of his claws.

    Agree, even though his arm still comes off. Alternity bumblebee I like but theres a lot of hate towards him. On the other hand, I can't stand Animated Shockwave.

    I too have to say Devs,most people try everything to get any incarnation of him,but I totally can't stand him,he was just a big combining brick in G1 and still is today,since he had zero poseability,atleast with the other combiners you did have a little.So no matter how much people love his combined form I don't.

    On a side note,I don't mind the individual forms,I just prefer not to have my constructicons in devs mode.

    ROTF Blazemaster. Then again, I have Tailwhip. But I still like the mold.

    From way back, I love Cybertron Thundercracker. I know people can't stand his giant cannon arm thing, but they completely overlook the rest of the figure because of it. If you swap out the cannon with a real arm (and mod the hand a bit to not look reversed...or just replace the both of them) he looks great! Good articulation and just a nice overall look.

    Count me in for RoTF Devestator too...I don't LOVE it but I don't hate it, I like the size and bulk it has. I think the RoTF Twins aren't that bad either. MUCH better than their DoTM counterparts, minus color schemes. I also LOVE 95% of the Cybertron line, personally I think it gets a bad rap from being part of the dreaded "Trilogy".

    As for toys everyone else loves but I hate, my answer is most of Animated, particularly Lockdown, Starscream and Blitzwing. I've tried but can't see any of the appeal whatsoever.
