    When Inferno first came out, he spent a fair amount of time in the Cool Stuff thread, but recently I've heard people disliking him, but hell I think he's great. Love the details in vehicle mode, think the shape of his bot mode is a great G1 throwback. I can't speak up for Swoop though, I didn't buy any Animated.

    I love inferno. Swoop probably because of his slim shape his transformation is limited.

    Swoop's only two problems are the fact that his head pops off easily and that I'm still not sure how his lower legs/knees are oriented in robot mode, but he makes a rather good dancing partner for Blackarachnia, I've found.


    I will say if we're talking under-appreciated here; I swear I'm the only person on these forums who loves the TFTM Voyager Prime mold. I haven't been too enthusiastic about some of the color schemes (I'm looking at you, badly tattooed ROTF Prime) but overall I love the mold itself :(

    I love the movie1 Salvage/Dropkick mold. For me it's the best pickup transformer to date. It does have it's drawbacks (the shoulder kibble) but over all it has a wonderful transformation and the Sanford and Son nod of the Salvage repaint makes me :lolol .

    Honestly, and this will get stones thrown at my head for being the bad toy guy... Energon Ironhide. I never saw what was so bad about him, yeah his head is exposed but there's been a lot of much worse offenders but the vehicle is decent, the robot mode has decent articulation and a good, bulky design, colors are decent, even his torso mode's one of the better ones from that series. I really think between the exposed head, a minor and common problem, and the annoying personality from the anime, he got a bad rap.

    RID Wedge and his constructicon repaint-Nothing but pure love.

    Animated Cybertronian Prime-Transformation is nifty and he looks awesome. What isn't there to like?

    Crossovers, I like Torch, V-wing and ahsoka, though you need imagination with her backpacks, torch looks neat, and the v-wing has hidden features, as do many xovers, I'm interested in The Anakin/" The Twilight" xover actually, though it seems I'm the ONLY one.

    TFTM Protoform Prime - outstanding robot mode, fun transformation.

    I also liked TFTM Voyager Prime - I can see why it was underappreciated, but I liked him.

    I often feel like I'm the only guy on these boards who loves the Movie Deluxe Autobot Jazz mold. I always feel exasperated whenever someone is constantly dissing it.

    I enjoy that mold as well. I really enjoy the transformation for some reason.

    The most under appreciated mold I own that gets some hate is Universe Galvatron. I really enjoy that mold. There are some things that could be fixed, but I'm definitely happy with the figure.

    It's weird. You think you won't like it, but once you have one you can't stop playing around with it. Fast and Easy to get him from mode to mode to boot. Still doesn't stop him from being hard to pose and...well...engorged.

    Really love Beast Machines Megatron, but that gets trashed a lot among the fandom.
