    So who is the one transformer that has recently given you the hardest time transforming?

    - Recently I made the mistake of changing Movie leader Starscream from robot to jet without glancing at the directions. This produced a huge mess of legs and arms on the bottom with no clear spot to place them. Turns out things went wrong for me with the arms and it all went down hill from there.

    WFC Prime, I swear if I dont fiddle with him every few day to keep it fresh in my mind I have trouble with him if I leave it longer than a week or so. Cant really think of anyone else.

    Leader Class movie Prime and Starscream. I haven't even tried to transform them.
    And my Masterpiece Megatron. When I first got him, I've tried to transform him into gun mode. I'd get close, but I could never get his legs into the locking position to form the gun's handle. He has stayed in robot mode since then. Which isn't a bad thing cause that's his best looking mode.

    Movie Mixmaster. Damn thing is practically made of strings of plastic and turning it into a cement mixer is a pain even with the instructions.

    The Alternity line as a whole seems to be somewhat of a pain to transform, especially bumblebee, but maybe they aren't hard transformations and I'm just afraid I'm going to break them. :)

    Movie Wheelie (deluxe). Trying to transform him into RC truck mode is litteraly trying to force-compress him. I have the hardest time trying to get his truck hood over that side-changing gimmick of his and getting the arms to sit just right under the truck carriage is a test in patience.

    War for Cybertron BubbleBee. Not that Turning him from one mode to the other is hard but when tabbing everything together in car mode; just tabbing and alining everything alone takes me longer to do than the rest.

    WfC Prime. For a deluxe, that is a confusing mess.

    MP Starscream, but only due to the fact that anytime I moved a piece, I had fingers flying at me.

    and for some reason, my TFA Prowl won't ever seem to lock together right, whereas my TFA Samurai Prowl just slides together beautifully.

    I haven't had a problem Transforming anything since ROTF Prime!

    I need Leader Goddamn Starscream. He's ..... perfect.

    Actually, I had a small amount of troubles with the panels on MP Skywarp.

    Oh, and Mixmaster was a bitch, but he as REALLY floppy and I blame him for that.

    There's more than one mold, d00d.

    I have yet to transform ROTF Leader Prime. I don't think I would have enough patience to put myself through that. :lol 

    There were a couple of Alternators back in the day that I thought were a bit of a bitch to transform. Also I remember when I got CR Speedbreaker, and holy hell, if you were not paying attention the first time....sheeeeeeiiiiiittttt.

    Many of those already mentioned.
    I'll throw in a Death Star Darth Vader for panel fiddly goodness.
    Also I found mistransformation is directly proportional to wine consumption.

    Cybertron Legends Soundwave. His transformation isn't hard per se (he is a Legends toy, after all), but it's a real pain to get his jet mode looking decent and not crooked.

    I would have said Alt. Shockwave, but I'm finally getting the hand of transforming him without having the hood of the car come off.
