I'll say that the majority of Transformers have recognizable alt modes (obviously a plane, obviously a car) and relatively complex transformations (with the exception of the Jumpstarters). Sometimes, however, they appear to be a clusterf*ck of random parts, signifying nothing, and with a far too simple transformation to boot... e.g. Cybertron Metroplex. Now I loved Metroplex as a child, and I was thrilled to hear that a new Metroplex was coming out. When it hit the shelves, my excitement quickly turned to dismay. WTF is he supposed to be? He looks cool enough in robot mode, but in alt mode it looks like his robot mode is preparing to be entered from behind, sexually, while a steamshovel sits atop his back. I know, I know... He is some sort of giant excavator. It's not the stupid alt mode that bothers me so much as how he appears to transform. It's too obvious, too simple. As another example, consider Titanium Series Optimal Optimus. The robot lies on his stomach while going into "Stretch Armstrong" mode and there you have it... A fighter jet! WTF?! It all sort of reminds of that scene in Family Guy where Steven King says, "For my next book, the villain will be... *looks frantically all around the room* a big scary lamp!" To which the publisher replies, "You're not even trying anymore, are you?" Let's face it, with some Transformers they are not even trying. Now I know there have been numerous threads about who our least favorite Transformers are, but I am wondering which bots do we all think are indications of the Hasbro/Takara design department(s) putting forth as little effort as possible?
