    Yeah, we've been getting terrible figures lately, but just for the heck of it, why don't we take another look and see what are the good things about them. Even if it was just one thing.

    I'll start with mine:

    DOTM Voyager Prime:
    -Got the best backpack of all Voyager movie Primes.
    -Having 5mm ports in its hands and weapons enables me to switch them with other.
    -Got one of the best mechtech weapons of the line.

    DOTM Deluxe Bumblebee:
    -Being smaller actually made it better to me.
    -Got one of the best mechtech weapons of the line

    HFTD Sea Attack Ravage:
    -Love the color scheme.
    -Works as some sort of a Cybertronian wildlife to fight

    PRID Hot Shot:
    -A Bumblebee mold that it's NOT Bumblebee

    Arachnid- "Yeah, you'll like her. Well, she has a great personality..."

    Universe Galvatron- the alt mode is a really cool tank.

    Damnit, this is hard. At least Keira Knightly has a vagina (I hope).

    Airachnid - She looks good being gutted by Arcee.

    RtS Perceptor - He uh...fuck it, I can't do this. Percy can go straight the fuck to toy hell.

    Armada Sideswipe has a really nifty Minicon storage spot in vehicle mode.

    DotM Air Raid had an awesome alt-mode.

    Other than Prime, I don't think any of those are BAD. The only thing wrong with Deluxe Bumblebee is that he's a Deluxe Bumblebee. On its own it's actually a pretty good figure.

    Sea Attack Ravage is better than the original version, which is... aggressively mediocre. Good as a robotic cat, not good as a Transformer.

    And Hot Shot is actually pretty awesome.

    Airachnid has decent paint apps, unlike most Prime line figures. And sculpted faction symbols are always a plus.

    Airachnid has Decepticon symbols molded in. When was the last time we got this molded in, the Unicron Trilogy?

    She still looks like crap though. :|

    At least Airachnid doesn't smell like a skunk's butt.

    ROTF Scalpel is both the first Microscope TF we've had in years after Perceptor, and probably the first true cannon Decepticon medic to get a toy (I know G1 Hook's tech spec implies he can also do medic duty, but he's never seen actually DOING medic work)

    Actually, the Animated Leader figures all had molded faction chest symbols (although I don't know if this counts, since they're separate pieces from the chest in order to be pushed and activate the noises/lights)

    Of stuff I have:

    DOTM Jolt: His alt mode looks sorta cool even though it's highly inferior to the ROTF one.

    Recon Ironhide: Has awesome weapons.

    ROTF Ransack: He looks cool when he's not falling apart.

    Movie Clocker: Urm...his alt mode is...okay?

    Battlefield (Cannon) Bumblebee: I like the shoulder cannons.

    ROTF Soundwave: Love the head sculpt.

    ROTF Whirl (Blackout retool): His head sculpt is pretty awesome.

    Doubleclutch: His car mode is neat.

    RTS Rodimus: Urm...he...can't give me aids?

    DotM Fireburst Prime: Dat axe. Paint job's pretty sweet too.

    RotF Arcee: Is actually really screen-accurate (I'm playing devil's advocate though, because I'm in the small minority that actually likes her).

    ROTF Blazemaster is a great source of ball joints. The chopper mode is also nice.
