I feel this is something that needs to be addressed. I've brought it up a few times, but I feel it's still worth asking: What made the AOE Generations line so bad? Why's it remembered as the worst toy-line in the movies? How many toys could you consider actually bad? The only one I know of that everyone generally had the same negative feelings on was Lockdown, First Edition Optimus Prime, and Leader Grimlock. Everyone else was generally mixed to positive. Okay, there's three bad toys. What about the good toys? Well, Evasion Optimus Prime, Hound, Drift, New Bumblebee, Scorn, and Slug are all considered pretty darn good, while the rest are very much in the middle as far as reception goes. I guess I don't know how an entire line can be deemed awful, quality wise, when there were only three bad toys. If that's the case, then Combiner Wars and Titans Return must be pretty poor lines, as well. Is it the lack of Decepticons? Perhaps? But that doesn't necessarily mean the figures themselves are bad, just that the line wasn't terribly diverse. It's a shame we didn't get Stinger in the U.S. as a Gen figure, but that doesn't mean that makes Evasion Optimus Prime or Drift worse toys. If anything I thought DOTM had the most dull line. And that was even with those magical $5 deluxes.
