    What the title says. I figured that everyone has at least one figure they don't like or care for even though most people do, so maybe people have figures that they think they're alone in liking. So, why not give these figures mention?

    Oh, and if this topic has been done before recently...then the mods can feel free to merge/delete this thread, and I apologize for wasting people's time.

    Anyway, I'll give a nod to DOTM Sideswipe. Severe lack of paint aside, this figure is pretty cool. I'll also give a nod to Movie Payload, the little armored security services truck. He's by no means the greatest figure from the line, but I kinda adore the little lens head's charm once I got the head down onto all four pegs that secure it.

    I've been hearing a lot of dislike for the First Edition/NYCC Prime Bumblebee. While I do recognize his flaws, I like the toy, reminds me a lot of RTS Jazz but changes enough up to be different and not feel redundant.

    I agree, I also feel Prime Bumblebee owes a lot design-wise to RTS Jazz. In a very good way- Jazz is one of the best-designed figures I own.

    I don't have a ton of fondness for Prime Bumblebee the character, so I don't like it as much as Jazz, but as far as a well-designed enjoyable figure goes, Prime Bee is one of the best there is. The first night of playing with him and Arcee I had pretty much been sold on the whole Prime line. It's only the realities of shelf-space giving me pause now.

    I mean, maybe his face sculpt is a little freaky.

    My usual response to this kind of thread was "Universe Galvatron" but from now on it's gonna be Human Alliance Soundwave.

    And yes, there have been similar threads but I think it's ok to get new ones, opinions change and there's only so much you can discuss about plastic crack preferences. As long as they aren't running at the same time, I don't think there'd be a problem.

    I kid, I kid, but I don't have a figure that I love but everyone hates.

    Titanium Ultra Magnus. He does have his problems but otherwise he's a pretty neat little figure.

    Classics Jetfire is definitely one I like a lot more than some people.

    Can't think of any others off the top of my head, but I'll bet there's more :D

    I really dig the DOTM Jolt. A lot of people hate it, but I really dig him.

    DOTM HA Drag Strip. I get why a lot of people don't care for this toy, but I absolutely love him.

    PP01 Faith Leader with toon accurate head. White hat wearing HasTak fanboys can rant and rage all they want against this guy, but he remains my main Prime against which all others are measured in my Classics/MP/3P collection. I think he looks better and more faithful to G1 toon Prime than even MP-10.

    Actually, RotF Demolishor. And I really don't know why. I think it has to do with the fact that he's one of my favorite bot designs from the movie. He could've been a lot better with a few changes, but I accept him as he is.

    Universe Galvatron is definitely tops on that list.

    I don't really have much issue with Universe Ironhide and Ratchet, either. Similarly, there's a lot of distaste for the Universe Prowl mold and his compatriots, but I think he's great.

    RotF Mixmaster isn't the most well-loved, mostly because of his complicated transformation, but he's easily one of my favourites.

    I think Demolishor is a great fiddle toy. Far more than what I can say for fellow Constructicon Rampage, whom every time I look at him I'd like to introduce to a wall - by throwing him against it.
