    What this board really needs is a complaint thread.

    Classics/Generations. For some reason I just can't get into them. I don't care for the aesthetic too much... I'll try to get the IDW Wreckers in that aesthetic, just for accuracy, but other than that I won't buy any...

    Universe Ultra Onslaught.

    Honestly not a bad toy, just a bad Onslaught.

    Let's just call him "Chimp Jack". Actually I think he's a well done toy but the face just kills it for me.

    Anyway - not sure if the consensus is pro or negative, but RTS Perceptor is the only toy I'm really disappointed I bought. Yeah, I need/want a representation of the character, but I really dislike that mold.

    Proportions suck, shoulders suck, alt mode is death boring, and it's bitch to go from bot to truck. (Oddly, I don't have backpack issues with him though.)

    Edit:
    Almost forgot: Universe Silverbolt.

    Universe Octane ("Tankor") is just appalling.

    I was generally disappointed in the HA Basics, Backfire and Whirl have good weapon modes but that's pretty much it.

    Legion class Vehicon is terrible. It barely transforms. With all the great Legions out there it really stands out as uninspired.

    I'm generally pretty happy with the figures I buy, and am pretty selective, so this doesn't happen to me much.

    70% of all Masterpiece, Alternator/Binaltech, Alternity, and Japanese-initiated fan/collector appeal stuff in general.

    I don't care for fiddly, annoying, twenty-minute transformations.

    Masterpiece Optimus. The 2007 Beast Wars giftset Megatron retool. Most classics, chief among them is Jetfire which I find to be absolutely awful.

    First Edition Arcee and Bumblebee. Derpy face, ridiculous handlebars behind the head, obstructive, inaccurate shoulder-wings, and inability to carry her own weight with her knees bent for the first, and floppy chest, bizarre concave forearms, anorexic bodybuilder proportions, and general lack of anything that truly pegs together for the second.
