    Simple, which is the worst animated toy in your opinion and why?

    Mine's gotta be Lockdown, it just looks so weird with those hands (yes I know i can just mod it, but really don't care much for him to do it) and the overall look of the toy in bot mode is just off, having said that, his Alt mode is just awesome (really the reason i got him on the first place).
    Thanks for posting guys. :)

    I used to really dislike Lockdown, but that was more due to issues with the particular one I had. Now... well, he's still on the chopping block to be sold, but I appreciate him more.

    Another Animated fig I didn't like was actually Leader Megatron. Finally having him in hand, I couldn't believe this was the figure I'd pined after for so long. He was so simple to transform, it was like owning a bigger Universe Silverbolt. Unimpressed, I promptly sold him elsewhere. And I didn't even pay full price for him...

    Nonetheless, I'm VERY hard-pressed to call either of them the worst of the entire line. I haven't owned all of them either, though. If I had to choose one of them, it would have to be Deluxe Bumblebee. Oversized, goofy in appearance, not very sturdy-feeling and outclassed by every other size of Bumblebee.

    I'd have to go with the Voyager sized Cybertron Megatron. There are certainly some cool aspects to this figure, but the legs kill it for me.

    The worst overall, I have to go with Jetfire/Jetstorm.

    If Voyager Megatron isn't what everyone is saying....obviously you haven't owned him.

    Voyager Megs SUCKS!!!

    It's not easy to hate on a figure you've never owned. All the bad reviews always kept me away. :lol 

    EDIT: For the most part, anyway. I don't need to own Armada Sideswipe, thank you very much.

    C'mon man, Give some love to Lockdown. Stealth Lockdown is my favorite animated toy.

    I still have no idea how people could possibly hate Lockdown... look at the size of the toy you get for the price, ton of articulation, really cool design, and hello, Transformers have vehicle modes too you know, and his is awesome. Doesn't look cobbled together like, say, either Cybertronian Megatron.

    But as a bad toy professional... Lockdown's still the worst in the line, just not THAT Lockdown.

    YouTube - Plastic Addict 12: Activator Lockdown

    Though technically I'd call Bandit Lockdown even worse, aside from being a reused mold that always runs risks, the deco is atrocious.

    Any version of Cybertron Megatron. That was a horrible mold.

    Hey NB, no one cares.

    Out of the toys that I've owned I would have to say that Oil Slick or Leader Megatron have been the worst. Clearly I haven't owned Voyager Megatron. ;)

    Voyager Megs is the clear winner, but to bring a new name up; Voyager Starscream. The legs never go back into Jet mode properly, there are feet hanging off the back, I've never really liked the backward 'swept' wings and the automorph kinda makes the transformation to bot mode kinda boring. He just disappointed me, especially at a $30 Canadian retail price.

    Activator Optimus Prime. That thing is harder to transform than the larger toys.

    Animated has been generally good, in terms of quality but there have been a few bad toys. Breaking it down...

    - Worst Deluxe - Sentinel Prime. Maybe it's just mine, but the shoulders come apart with the slightest movement of the arms and the waist doesn't stay together very well either. Lockdown is a close runner-up in this category, though.
    - Worst Voyager - Earth Mode Optimus Prime. In theory, it's decent, but there are too many of the joints that are floppy.
    - Worst Leader - The Leader class is generally pretty good, so none really. If I absolutely have to choose, I suppose Megatron, solely due to the shoulders not locking in robot mode.
