    Just like the title says, has anyone ever given up on a transformer. For me it was Movie Leader Brawl. My cousin (who was about 7 at the time) got it for his birthday and asked if I could turn it into a tank for him, and I just couldn't do it. And I never even had a problem with ROTF Leader Prime.

    Never.
    I've had problems, and so I would take a break, but then I get right back on the horse until I have it down pat.

    I've never completely given up on a figure. I have had enough and stopped for a few minutes or put it away for the day to collect myself and try again without being frustrated.

    The way the mixer pieces and his arms move and fold up, I sometimes feel like he's harder than ROTF prime, but I finally got him down. He was a pain though in the beginning.

    Universe Galvatron. I'm fed up with that toy and the limbs/kibble falling apart. I've only ever transformed it once to robot mode and never was able to transform it again.

    I gave up on my first try on ROTF Leader Optimus to get him into his alt mode but I finally just sat down and decided that I was going to get it right, damn it :lol 

    I gave up a few times on the first couple Alternators I bought (before I really started getting into this hobby). Since I picked up the Bay movie figures, all the Alternators are SO easy :lol

    Movie 1 Deluxe Bumblebee. Got stuck trying to transform him into vehicle because I couldn't get the legs right. Ended up breaking him.

    Yeah, the twins had pretty good robot and alt modes but the transformations were a train wreck.

    Never ever! But...I've came pretty close more than several times with ROTF Leader Jetfire. All of his little panels and such hate me!

    Does leaving RotF Leader Optimus Prime on my bed mid transformation because I had to go count?

    Actually to me, I think "give up" implies that you used the Instructions because I try to transform them without instructions first... till I get stuck. Which with movie toys is pretty much right away.

    I've never not been able to Transform a figure but 2007 Leader Megatron even with instructions I almost gave up on. I don't know why, he looks easy but every time I transform him I feel like breaking him in half.

    Both Leader Optimus Primes have far more moving parts but are still easier to deal with although I don't have the 2007 version anymore because I gave it to charity.
