    I just got movie Ravage sent to me, and while its one of the few movie toys I like I doubt I'll ever transform it, due to its alt mode being a pear drop.
    It got me thinking about the toys in my collection that I've never transformed and probably never will:

    Brave Max (will take too long to remove from box, bloody ties...bring back polystyrene)
    RiD Autobot brothers (watched a mate spend an hour fiddling with them and left mine in car mode)
    Galaxy Force / Cybertron Metroplex (horrible alt mode)
    G2 Fireflight (gold plastic)
    BW2 Gigaplex (no alt mode accessories)

    So, discuss your unTF'd TF's, and the reasons why?

    But it's secret alt mode is a chocobo!

    for me, THC 02 Convoy is the only one.
    Well, I came close. it's not hard, and it's not because it's an ugly truck, its because of the problems the mold has, that may be just due to it being from the recent re-release. the tabs on the arms dont fit into their slots in alt mode at all. they dont even seem to be in the right spot.

    also, after undoing the transformation after discovering that, I noticed that the transformation had scraped all the paint on the very front edge of his mouth plate off, from nose to chin. he had a blue stripe down the center of his mouth plate. so I touched that up, and he will never be transformed again. what's the point, if it's just gonna damage him?

    Kick Off, Treadshot and Banzaitron. Because they're Action Masters.

    Alternators Mirage - love the vehicle mode, but it's in storage and I've never transformed it before.

    RID Sideburn, the Hot Rod-ish power up redeco. I've transformed him a couple times, but the one I got is the definition of second hand: no weapon, really bad pain chipping, missing left foot, and the roof/shield is broken (with a hot glue seam holding it together, it was like that when I got it. He's in alt. mode right now, and that's how he's going to STAY for the rest of the time I own him, namely because transformation is a bitch either way and his robot mode is too floppy for my liking.

    MP 1b, after returning the first for multiple problems, I get the replacement and guess what?.....more paint chips and a HUGE gash in the plastic on the front of the shoulder. With all that damage from shipping or just plain bad QC, I'm actually afraid to touch it.

    I've transformed every TF in my collection at least once. I don't transform the Masterpiece's very often, except for Grimlock.

    Well, Nothing. I can transform MP Megs/any other MP no problems. I'm careful enough to transform my alts/binaltech without chipping them. I don't own any figures who have GPS. & the MISB figures I have (Magnificus, Return of Convoy: Hot Rod Team, Sunstorm) will all be opened one day. Yeah, I ain't afraid of my TFs... :lol

    Ive never transformed, and i dont plan on transforming, Masterpiece Megatron, Prime, or Starscream. I only transformed Mp SW and TC because they came in their alt modes. Oh and ROTF Prime I haven't gotten around to yet. All others, unless MISB, have been tranformed at least twice.

    Henkei Galvatron, TM1 Megatron - fear of breakage
    TM Rattrap - Chrome issues..I try not breathe on him.
    RID Megatron - Chrome issues and I'm generally annoyed by the figure anyway.
    Any of the Beast Machines that I still have because their robot modes all suck ass.

    I count Catgut and Razor-Sharp as seperate Transformers, in the same way Rumble isn't part of Soundwave. Kick Off's rocket pack... hmm.

    I've transformed MP Megatron once, just to try it out, but I'll never do so again, due to the high risk of it breaking. I also don't transform TM Megatron, since I don't want it to succumb to GPS any time soon.

    I actually bought two G1 Roadbusters, one of which I will probably leave in vehicle mode forever. The damn thing develops stress fractures and breaks when you transform it correctly. :p
