    For years I would have said G1 Ratchet/Ironhide, but with the Universe molds finally did those 2 justice.

    I think the bot that got screwed over the worst was Rhinox, he is covered in kibble, shrunk and bares little ressemblance to his screen character. I think he was double screwed, as BM Tankor was a lame effort aswell.

    Beast Wars Blackarachnia(original)

    Instead of just making a Tarantulas re-deco the figure should have been redesigned to give her a more streamlined body and a more feminine look as well as better paint apps.

    BM Tankor doesn't have a great resemblance, but they got reasonably close (albeit tiny) with the Tank Drone.

    Transmetal Rhinox was a neat toy, although that form didn't appear on the show anywhere.

    My vote would be for Armada Hot Shot. The original figure in the Armada line was awful and the TFU 2.0 mold managed to somehow be even worse than that.

    Recently, I think Animated Blitzwing. Such a great character from the show gets a floppy toy with no weapon usage in robot or jet modes.

    I think Cheetor has got pretty consistantly shafted with his toys.

    Animated Blackarachnia fixed this problem IMHO.......it pays homage to BW BA in so many ways.

    While I know what you mean, I still would like a proper BW Blackarachnia one day. Animated BA still has so many differences.

    O.K.,I'll agree on this one...

    You're right so I'll change my answer to Beast Machines Nightscream.The figure was too large,the articulation sucked,and both modes looked almost the same.

    Animated BA looks like BW Blackarachnia from the original cartoon in so many ways IMHO. Animated BA is done so well that I think it could fit in with the original BW toys.

    To be fair I think we can stick most BM characters in here
