    Transformers are cool. If you're on this site, you probably already know this. And for the most part, Transformers look cool.

    However, over the years there have been some very wierd, unconventional, and outright strange Transformer Toy releases that make you wonder what the toy makers were smoking when they were designed.

    I want to know which of these fugly figures you know you probably shouldn't like, but for some reason, you're really rather fond of.

    I'll get the ball rollin'....

    Spittor from Beastwars would be a wierd one that I love. Gangly arms. Tiny legs. An even tinier head that forms his tongue in his alt mode. By all rights, is should hate him, but theres just something about him that i cant help but like.

    More recently, Skidz and Mudflap. I detested their designs when i first saw them, with the oversized fists and asymmetrical, goofy head designs. But they grew on me, and now they are some of my favourite figs from the ROTF line.

    Over to you...

    HA bumblebee, I hate the head design of bay's bumblebee, but the figure is so fantastic that the head has really grown on me

    I cant think of any others off the top of my head, but Ill add some others if I think of them

    g1 Broadside. The absolute definition of a "brickformer". 2 points of articulation. Literally.
    That being said, I have a beautiful MINT condition complete Broadside that is one of my favorite TFs. Theres just something about this figure that does it for me. Not so much an "ugly" TF, but my feelings for this guy jives with this thread.
