    Just curious of the lines you own, which is the absolute horror mold ORIGINATED from that line?

    If we consider CHUG one line, then I would have to say Galvatron

    PCC, of the ones out I would say Rallybots.

    For ROTF, I'd break it down to catagories like:

    1. Human Alliance: probably Sideswipe without mod
    2. ROTF/HTFD deluxe: Mudflaps and Skids

    etc, etc. What's your opinion?

    edit::

    ROTF leader class: Jetfire. Horrible Paneling.

    CHUG would be Galvatron. I love the fig, but he's the worst of the ones they've done
    Alternators would be Windcharger, because of the awkwardness of the mold
    RID would be X-Brawn, so much wrong with that guy
    G1/G2 would be any of the powered masters or whatever the hell they're called. The ones that basically the front folds up and the back half of the vehicle stays the same with the motor in it. Absolute feces.

    That covers everything I collect, I believe

    People are getting bored waiting for Hasbro to release official upcoming product press releases, I suppose.

    From the PCC line the crap prize goes to: Aerialbots!! Worse mold I've ever had!! I gave this one away to my nephew for play purposes. The darn thing couldn't even stand and kept falling apart.

    ROTF: Camshaft....this mold sucks!!

    For CHUG the obvious worst is Cheetor. Galvy is just undersized, otherwise a pretty good figure.

    Armada- Sideswipe
    Energon- Hard to say, most have some sort of redeeming feature, even glutinous prime.
    Cybertron- I reckon Leobreaker. Looks good, poor poseability.
    Movie- MOST OF THEM
    RiD- I'd say probably....the spychangers? None of the figures in this line seem bad at all.
    G1- They all look pretty, but essentially they're all...pretty shit bricks :p 
    PCC- None are particularly bad, they're just not for me.

    Good point on Galvy, I didn't consider Cheetor since I don't get the furry stuffs.

    Weird, I've repacked my Alts recently to keep only very few displayed, and kept Windcharger/Decepticharge as they are quite good! Basically no car kibbles, no obvious hollow chest, I like this mold quite a lot :)

    I don't have more than one or 2 of the other lines, so I'll have to go with animated, since its the line i'm most familiar with.

    Ignoring bad quality control and poor joints which most animated figures seem to have, I say starscream.

    Poor representation of the character, the legs arent just good enough for balance, and the arms with their missiles simply seem to stick out, transformation is annoying and the alt mode is not as sleek as a jet should be. And its the seeker mold, hasbro should at least get starscream's toy right.

    Going by the lines I own a decent amount of:

    Cybertron: Soundwave and Override
    Crossovers: ARC-170
    Movie: Leader Megatron and Ratchet
    Animated: Blackarachnia
    ROTF: Scalpel
    CHUG: Octane

    But this being me and all, I don't absolutely hate these particular toys. I just don't have as much fun with them as I do with other toys.

    Will probably never own G1 Ratchet or Ironhide. Even the reissues and green and black exclusives are still in stock somewhere. The custom heads cannot help when the mold is already poor.

    Love all the rest of my G1, BW, BM, RID, ARM, ENRG, CYB, ALT, BT, MP, CHUG, and HA. But out of all of those, the one with the worst mold is Obsidian.

    My Worsts

    I sold most of my G1 collection several years ago, but from my recollection, Megatron was my least favorite G1 toy. Forgetting the silliness of the Decepticon leader changing into a tiny gun that had to be held by someone else in order to be useful, the robot mode sucked.

    Among the modern classics, my least favorite one that I bothered to buy was Silverstreak. The side panels (door/fender assemblies) kept popping off during transformation... so eventually I popped him into the trash can.
