    ultimate prime, used the helmet mod by peaugh and he looks divine.

    also shadow commande megatron, the black really makes him less derpy than regular derpy leader megs

    Voyager Animated Bulkhead. While I know most people don't hate this toy, everyone seems to favor the leader. Not in my case though, I love the chubby little guy.

    Don't know if it's hated, but I like Kreo far more than the average user here.

    The TFP line for me.

    Seems like somebody has some type of issue with every figure, but I like them even without the FE look.

    -Deluxe Classics Optimus. Aside from the vehicle mode not pegging in everywhere and the legs not collapsing, he's a great toy.
    -Classics Galvatron. I find he's okay. Not the best toy, but deserves far more credit than people give it.

    Prime Megatron and Cliffjumper. Especially Cliffjumper. Yes, the arms are weird to a degree. But the wrist still allows enough movement to get around this a little. And he is quite fun to transform, something all of these seem to share.

    Movie 1
    - Voyager Megatron: I actually like the ice demon vibe the figure gives off and is an explosion of light piping :D .
    ROTF
    - Deluxe Rampage: Not often do we get a yellow bulldozer that turns into a robotic crab/pogostick, but ROTF Rampage managed to pull off. Personally I prefer the walking crab mode for its unusual nature and slight homage (if any) to BW Rampage.
    DOTM
    - Deluxe Roadbuster: While a more weaponized figure would have been better seeing as both Leadfoot and Topspin have them, deluxe Roadbuster is still an decent toy with a neat chainsaw/gun weapon that works once you get rid of the damn spring inside.
    Prime
    - RID Cliffjumper: Regarding the missing option of cannon converting hands and shortness of the RID version, it appears to be a more accurate and surprising more fun figure overall (at least from what I've seen). The figure really shines though once you paint it up a bit (the gray took away from the figure).
    - RID Bumblebee: Honestly I vastly prefer the RID version over it's FE counterpart (possessing the NYCC version). The transformation is less problematic and more fun to convert back and figure. Despite the awkward shoulders, you can pose the figure in many ways, plus he comes with 2 guns, something that was missing from the previous version.

    Classics Ironhide mold. I saw a lot of people criticizing it, but once I got it in hand I don't dislike it that much. I actually kind of like it. And RiD Bumblebee.

    Both for me as well.

    Deluxe Classics Optimus Prime has a great robot mode, while the alt-mode is not so great. It's grown on me considerably since I've had it, and I like to fiddle with it every now and then.

    Classics Galvatron - the transformation from tank to robot was extremely frustrating, but the robot mode in the end was just too cool not to like. I especially love the evil look the orange light-piping gives him.

    I honestly don't ever pay attention to what the consensus on any given toys. I usually look at the first review or feedback thread on a new figure just to get an idea of features and thats it. I try not to let others opinions influence mine

    PRID Bumblebee and Cliffjumper; you could not pay me to stop defending these two.
