    Today I was bored so I went to my wall & pulled down a random tf to transform. When I tried to transform it, I realised I totally hate this fig to the point that I want to throw it in the trash. When I first bought it, it was one of those really rare figs to find at the time but I was just strolling the toy aile not even looking for it......I HAD TO BUY IT! Now I look at it & there's nothing I like about it. The boat mode is lame & the robot mode is lame also(imo). It's just such a crappy figure, I can't explain it.

    I love him also, but I can't remember how to transform him back into his Alt. mode. He has a very menacing face and a great mold, which is why i love him.

    Mirage is a great mold but I prefer his Dreadwing recolor.

    As for suddenly not liking a figure, I felt the same one day about Beast Wars Neo Long Rack. Ordered him from the OLD Hasbro online store back in 99 or 2000 (anyone remember that??) thinking he would be awesome, boy was I wrong.

    I'm not a huge fan of this one either. I hate the things just hanging down his back in robot mode...

    Energon Dreadwing is one of my favorite TFs, such a menancing and bad ass looking con. Sadly as soon as I got him, one of the joints on his boat-kibble flaps got a crack in it making it very wobbly and sensitive so I don't really fiddle with him as much as I like. It stays in place pretty well (I actually have mine with his flaps straight up) but can pop off easy and even possibly snap apart completely if handled too roughly.

    All in all, a lot of the 'cons from Energon were pretty badass compared to the 'bots.

    Word!
    I managed to get quite a few energon bots and the few I like are the ones not completely depending on joining with another bot, IE Basics, Op and Landmine. Ironhide's quite cool on his own though :)  Jetfire sucks, Prowl is 100% back and Towline... I hate that trailer. Powerlinx ruined the figures.
    Hypermodes however, ROCKED :D  Making an already dangerous con even more dangerous without resorting to a beeping creep or a key was awesome!

    Never got Mirage though. I was stupid enough to pass him upp for Jetfire (Kicks himself in forehead*)

    I liked him. The legs pop off, but the look of the robot mode is cool. The boat halves make him look like an imperial guard or something. The pop up shoulder guns are also quite fun.

    I've got Dreadwing. Much better colors. It's a pretty good mold, I think.

    Mine didn't see much action, before it got put on the shelf. I got him the day before our Golden Retriever got put down. It was a couple of weeks, before I was interested in anything.

    yeah, seriously, I love this figure. him, the shark, and the dual nosed jet (can't believe I can't remember the names) were the best things to come out of energon, and were probably the best decepticons from the past 10 years.

    I agree that the cons got much better treatment than most of the deluxe Autobots. Stupid ass powerlinx.

    I have Dreadwing. I dunno, he's kind of a bitch to transform and back, and I don't care for the boat halves, but he's still a pretty damn cool bot, and his missile gimmick rocks in both modes. He does have a good evil face too.

    I also really like Cyber-Shark or Sky-Byte or whatever the fuck his name is. The one that's like a shark/jet with all the little turrets all over him. He has such a simple and quick transformation, and he's one figure that actually works really well with a huge ol' backpack.

    Slugslinger....awesome jet mode, awesome bot mode...too bad he holds together terribly in both modes. If the pegs would just stay put, or if his jet mode wasn't as fragile as a glass baby, he would be the best.
