    For me, its G1 Predaking (vintage or reissue). Sure he looks nice but somehow I find him cumbersome with limbs difficult to move and Divebomb's wings keep falling out of place and eventually out of position. What's yours'? :)

    Bendy Prime. Everybody makes such a huge deal out of that piece of shit. I've never been able to understand why he's so popular. I prefer the larger version with the trailer.

    Isn't that Armada Deluxe Prime? Yeah, seriously overrated.

    For my collection it's Powerlink Prime. Gads, what made me buy that hunk of plastic crap?

    07 movie Bumblebee. I spent all that time tracking one down, and when I finally got him I was like "this is the big deal?"

    Without a doubt, Masterpiece Megatron. Sure, it's a good representation of the character, but it's a poorly-engineered, fragile piece of crap that gets tarnishing on all the die-cast areas. A $100 toy like this should not be such an irredeemable piece of garbage and it's single-handledly turned me off of the Masterpiece line entirely.

    Fort Max. Yeah, I said it. I think the only thing that keeps him popular is his size. He's just too big to really play with. At least mine is always standing over the other bots or having the others stand on/around in base mode. He'd be a much better toy if he was 1/2 has size or less.

    Exactly who I was going to say. I found Animated Grimlock to be very overrated, after so many people said how awesome he was I thought he was pretty disappointing

    Didn't spend any time tracking him down (only bought him because the pack with Voyager Prime was on offer), but was totally underwhelmed by Bumblebee. Pieces falling off, a transformation from hell, and a pointless knife/gun gimmick. Still don't understand why there was so much negativity to the excellent Voyager Prime mold whilst this little yellow bundle of meh was raved about.

    LOL... when I read the subject line, I also immediately thought about G1 Predaking. Now I know why it took me so long to finally acquire one.

    My 2nd would be Fortress Maximus. An oversized Metroplex with a big $$$ pricetag.

    G1 Thunderwing. It's cool, but...well, I'd trade it for a well-made Voyager-sized "classics" version.

    This.

    D:

    You make me sadface.

    I can understand why some people may not like him though. But to call him poorly-engineered? Seriously? That thing is a marvel of TF engineering.

    I dunno that you could call him overrated though. Most people seem to think the same of him. Overpirced, gimmicky waste of money and plastic.
