    This is a tough one, but...

    I nominate the Michael Bay hate as both the best & worst fan gimmick of tfw.

    My favorite is Powerlinx/2-3 figure combinations. My least is either Cyber-Keys or Pretenders.

    most: transforming. Aside from small-scale automorphing, gimmicks take away more than they add.

    dislike: Mechtech weapon system. It's lead to a line whose Voyagers are barely larger (and has as much plastic to them) than Deluxes from a few years ago. Hasbro... the movie line IS THE GIMMICK.

    I'd like rub signs a little more if they were on women's underwear.

    Favorite gimmick? IDK

    Least favorite? That cyber key gimmick or w/e it was. That's just a retarded feature. "Loool, i need dur key to activate dur weapon!" What if you lose the key? good job, you have a gimped figure now. Also, any gimmick that ends up ruining the figure. See: TFTM Deluxe Barricade and its "punch" feature

    I actually like Mechtech a little more than I thought because one, it's cool how you can mix, match, and make a weaponized figure just by attaching a bunch of weapons to it. Hasbro has gotten me buying some figures I originally wouldn't buy just because I want their Mechtech weapons. And two, it doesn't get in the way of the actual figure at all (stuff like Megs/Shockwave are exceptions). It's completely optional and doesn't affect anything else.

    Fav. Combining and Headmaster (Skipping Transforming even though that is the ultimate gimmick)

    Least-Powerlink. Along with any gimmick that sacrifices the toyéfigure for the gimick.
