    The reason I made this topic is because of my RTS Special Ops Jazz. Both his modes are fine and all and he is a great throwback to G1 yet I can find nothing in the figure I like. I got him for cheap at Ross after passing him by like 10 times and I still can't justify the purchase. is there any figure that just doesn't do it for you but you don't hate it?

    RTS Strafe (and, presumably, HFTD Mindwipe, if I owned him). The mold is fine, the transformation is fine, the colors are...fine. He just leaves me cold.

    ROTF Brawn. He is incredibly bland. His transformation is unintuitive and he has some kibble, but there's a good aesthetic and a nice update to the G1 character...but it just evokes no fire in my belly.

    I agree with RtS Jazz and RotF Brawn. I like Jazz and everything, but...I just can't get INTO the figure, it's far from bad, it just doesn't tickle my fancy.

    Brawn I like the look of, not a big fan of the kibble (thinking of taking it off and making him an "Action Master"), and I like the jeep mode, but I don't play with him for shit.

    I'm joining the ROTF Brawn party. I'm also bored with RTS Tracks, the G2 Optimus from the same line, Animated Jazz, and Animated Ratchet.

    Personally I really dug ROTF Brawn. A couple figures that just leave me like 'ok' are ROTF Mindwipe, WFC Optimus Prime, Animated Leader Megs. Great toys, just not much to do with them.

    Perceptor is another instance of me, it may be the finicky transformation, or lack of dynamic poses, but his stand alone proto-form and alt-form are very suitable.

    Just decided to reshell Rts Jazz into a 935..... love that figure. Very posable and the face is very Jazz.

    There is something about the FP Insecticons I don't like but a lack of a better alternative keeps them safe.

    Prime First Edition Bulkhead

    Engineering is incredible but as a toy it's pretty boring. Paint is lacking and articulation is limited.

    Armada Prime (with motorized trailer)- he's just...dull. and never got the gimmick to work.

    Most of the DotM figures- i like my Shockwave and Skyhammer, but the others are jujst meh, at best.

    I have to disagree.

    His is alt mode arguably OK though bland but his bot mode is turrible - he's got those massive boots and skinny thighs, his shoulders are teh suck, and the backpack clips together for crap. And that's all before the nightmare transformation, lol.

    All that work to go from crappy bot mode to super boring alt mode.

    Just about everything and anything that Hasbro releases these days. I mean, with AM, you get a sense of pride when actually when you know that you've completed a figure.

    I remember being hyped as hell when I ordered Shattered Glass Treadshot. Then when I got him, I was overwhelmed by a feeling of "meh".

    I really like the Jazz mold- now the classics smokescreen, prowl, Silverstreak mold- boring. Nothing really wrong with them per se, just boring.
