    I'm still getting masses of G1's on a monthly basis- have slowed down a bit but one of I got recently has kinda disappointed me..

    One of my "Grails" was predaking, after getting sniped left right and centre on the vintage metal versions I spotted a good deal on a takara reissue and now I have it I feel let down..

    I don't know if its because I've always wanted it or the hype surrounding it but I just feel he's just not as cool as I expected...

    The merged form of predaking just feels cumbersome, sure he's got decent articulation and its huge but it just bugs me how it fits together and looks, the legs look weird in my view - the connector not being a central as I would have hoped and divebombs wings on the back seem difficult to keep stable.

    I've hunted and hoped I was just transforming him wrong but I got it right and its just not what I hoped- don't get me wrong its a cool toy but it just didn't live up to my expectations...

    Anyone else had similar experiences?

    Universe Nemisis Prime/Big Convoy.

    It is by far the single toy I own that I hate the most. I liked Armada Sideswipe more than that piece of crap.

    Also Leo Convoy. I seem not to have a good track record with Japanese exclusive Convoys. BWII Galvatron is cool though.

    Movie Swindle and one or two Armada Supercons(? Deluxes?).

    Other than that, not really, as I usually pick only good ones.

    Energon, Armada, Cybertron, RID all had some shitters and some good ones.

    Titanium’s I just don’t like them when I have them.

    Actually most of the movie toys were bad quality wise. Longarm, Stockade, Landmine are the ones I would say that are solid.

    Animated I honestly haven’t had or seen one that’s bad yet.

    Fortress Maximus. He's massive and towered above all my TFs, but other than that, he's kinda boring. IMO, his alt modes were kinda week looking too. I held onto mine for years before letting it go without any regrets.

    The fact that Star Convoy looks cool but only has about 4 steps to his transformation made him boring to me. Sure, he comes with a micromaster hot rod, and sure, he's Prime, but when you basically flip the truck over, stand it up, split the arms, and lower the chest to flip out the head, you realize that you just have a brick with a tread on the bottom that rolls.

    My disappointment came because I never thought he'd get released again and then when he did I got all hyped up and got him and then realized that he should've just stayed in his box.

    The most massive disappointment for me was Armada Hot Shot and Cyclonus. They were the first two Armada toys I bought and I had just gotten back into collecting with RiD and in comparison they were utter garbage. I appreciate them well anough now, but IMO they're still vastly inferior to most of RiD.

    More recent ones:

    Energon Grimlock/ Swoop
    Cyb. Overhaul/ Brushguard
    Cyb. Scattorshot
    Cyb. Override
    Movie Payload
    Movie Blackout

    There are a few i was dissaponted with when i first got them. but after putting them down for awile and picking them up sometime later(maybe a week or more) i realized i realy liked them for what they were, i like all my transformers becuse each one offers somthing diffrent. Its ez to be dissaponted if you put your expectations to high.

    I would have to say that I was very disappointed with the Landcross combiner set:http://www.tfu.info/1989/Cybertron/Landcross/landcross.htm
    The combined mode is pretty crappy, the individual bot modes are meh, and the "powerlinx" combined modes also get a big "meh" from me. The *ONLY* redeming thing about it is the fact that the guns fit into Classics Bumblebee's and Cliffjumper's hands.

    The first Titanium Megatron was a huge dissapointment...

    The Live action TF movie Voyager Megs was also shitty, although I don't know what I expected.

    Megatron Megabolt was also a huge dissapointment, because of his floppy legs...I was really excited about him too :(  and now some GPS is starting to occur)

    Damn I have had bad luck with Megatron!
