    What decent designed TF toys would "You" say were RUINED by ugly robot head sculpts?

    Mine is:

    I'd say Beastmachines ultra sized Nightscream looked decent. but the robot head sculpt looks too animorph & just ruins the whole toy.

    I'm kinda wondering right now,If I can replace the nightscream head with ROTF Voyager sized mindwipes robot head. to make the BM Nightscream toy look more decent in robot mode.

    Rotf Deluxe sized Breakaway. such a ugly robot head sculpt. the ROTF Thrust with the newer head & better colors really makes this mold shine.

    RTS Mindset- UGLY.
    Skids and Mudflap weren't bad.

    OTFCC tiny head Punch/Counterpunch. Great aesthetic, creative use of a mold with a two robot mode variants and update to an obscure character that wasn't likely to ever get a main-line, mass release retail update. But all ruined because they screwed up the size of the new head.

    Flying wild here - the not yet released Strafe re-deco of Mindwipe. If that had a new head, i'd be all over it. As it is, it doesn't look heroic enough to justify it's giant autobot symbol. It's a good head, just not for him, or that deco.

    I don't like the regular head. I think the battle mask looks decent & is cool because it looks kinda like a bees head with the bee eyes.

    Every modern repaint named "Strafe" is from a mold with a distinctly sinister head sculpt.

    I avoided Swindle and such like the plague because of their stupid projector heads or whatever.

    I'll end up picking it up because I like the mold, but I do agree a new head would've been a nice addition instead of the normal Mindwipe head.

    Staying with the Strafe needs-a-new-head theme, the exclusive (Gentei?) Classics release of Strafe doesn't appeal to me because they stuck with the Cyclonus head, so it just looks like "Fireblast" Cyclonus or something of that sort. If he'd had a new head, I would've jumped on it by now.

    Skids and Mudflap. No matter how nice the toys are, I'll never buy anything with those head sculpts.

    The lens-heads from the first movie line. They could have done something better than that.

    EDIT: Come to think of it, it actually wasn't that bad for the Dreadwing/Overcast/Fearswoop mold.

    Alternity Starscream. The mold is kinda cool, but his head is downright awful.

    Voyager movie Ratchet. I keep thinking how awesome that figure would look with a G1-esque head, particularly the G1 colored and Night Ops version.

    HFTD Highbrow would be on my want list if he didn't look like Shin Kamen Rider.

    Probably the best example of worst head design would be Armada Reindeer Megatron.To me Megs antlers just make me wanna laugh when I see them big honking things.Although the face and head are pretty nice,but the antlers just ruin it for me.Anyone else agree?.

    Activators Animated Bee. He's a really good toy but instead of a cute smile, he has this ugly smirk like he's a smug little prick.
