    Most of the ones I find ugly were also ones that were purposefully designed to be ugly or monstrous, like several of the BW Fuzors or Transmetal 2's.

    Ugly character designs I like, such as most of the Transmetal 2 guys like Jawbreaker.

    Ones who came out ugly, in spite of not being designed that way, are a different matter. Well, at least Armada Sideswipe has a cool vehicle mode.

    The BW Fuzors are what what stopped me from collecting until RID. I've back-tracked since then. I haven't completed any Beast series but I have a respectful showing. Anyway, Fuzors take my award for the most ugly, even if designed that way.

    after seeing that Blades repaint of Blackout, i realized how ugly blackout is to me in Bot mode.
    it is the paint- all that black hides his features and you can't appreciate it. kinda like painting over a painting.

    just an observation, but anyone else notice that the initials of Beast Machines matches Bowel Movement? j/k....

    I'm going to go with Leader Class Movie Megatron. I'm ok with the character design itself, but that toy's representation is just god awful, and at its size, there was so much potential for something better....He looks like a reject abominable snowman villain from MMPR or something.

    Yeah, the Fuzors (with the possible exception of Silverbolt and Quickstrike) were kinda... gross.

    Ratoratamatamahawk was probably the ugliest thing ever simply because of that horrid mould and repulsive name.

    I think everbody hated that guy.

    G1 seems too easy to pick on, imo. They should know better by this decade though.

    A MONOCLE! Why not just give him a pipe and slippers too?

    I'd say Cybertron Backstop or Armada Sideways. I mean seriously, I thought his design from the series was good, but the toy rendition was purely terrible, his head couldn't actually swap!

    And who ever thought a good robot design should have a big rhino's ass? XD

    Fuzors Torca, the head to that toy literally scares me. It's the only loose BW Maximal I have that isn't on the BW Maximal shelf. It's tucked away in storage where it can't yell at me again.

    Agreed, although I do think the beast mode is very unique.

    BW Injector gets my vote. However I loved how they wrote his ugliness into the character's bio, saying that he believed he was incredibly handsome. Genius.
    WHAT a shock. :rolleyes:

    I'm not crazy about the Animated aesthetics. Single most ugly design? BM Nightscream. It looked like somebody took a crap on the top of his head and he had a turd dangling in his face.
