    For me, it's Battle Rollar. Floppy mess, wheels that don't stay parallel in alt mode... just not fun at all to play with.

    More of a 3rd party accessory for a 3rd party TF, but my vote goes to that melty City Commander replacement head.

    Yea, I gotta go with the SG Collect City Commander set too. At least Battle Rollar had good molding and paint apps, despite the poor design.

    The iGear Grimlock crown was pretty bad too (the rest of the kit was fine).

    I don't remember the actual name but for me it is the Gears Of War(?) set with that orange "Mirage disappears Box" and the Multicolour Shoulder Launchers.

    Ok admittingly, even though it is crap, the orange box was unexpected by me so it's not a big deal.

    I misread the product and assumed they would all be beautiful and silver chromed launchers. When they arrived they were not and the colours make no sense to me.

    NOW all this being said, calling it the worst isn't calling it bad. Shoulder Launchers for the Brothers and Mirage are cool, I love the Cassette and Inferno needed a ladder. I was just disappointed by the random colour of the launchers.

    Now before everyone bashed the Ark Playset, because I think that got the worst reviews of the bunch, it is a good set once you take 1 minute of your life to add crazy glue to the connectors. I love the set but because of bad press we will never see the Decepticon Base:(

    I-Gear teletran set. Impossible to put together and expensive. Totally disappointing they fucked up a non-transforming product.

    Crazy glue wouldn't have fixed mine.

    I got that thing (the Teletran set) almost a year ago I think and it's still boxed. One day...

    From what I've seen/read/heard, I would have to go with the Crazy Devy Predaking wing... that actually damaged the toy. That's pretty bad.

    I don't want to defend the product because, hey I make no monies from it, I just want people to know that this item is a diamond in the rough. YES one small dab of crazy glue on each connector and the piece actually flattens out and becomes as sturdy as a brick. Trust me I was amazed at what the crazy glue did for the set. When I set it up on its own the pieces where warped and the thought of having it hold together on its own was a joke. I decided to go for broke and use crazy glue. I swear I can hold this thing from anywhere now with one hand and it holds and you can take a level to it and you will find no warped spots.

    I agree the price was hefty and the work involved should not have been there but once all is said and done it is a pretty piece. But I like playsets.

    AND TO THE OP....I LOVE THIS QUESTION. OVER THE PAST YEAR OR TWO I'VE BECOME A HUGE FAN OF 3RD PARTY STUFF.

    battle rollar isn't too bad... if its floppy just nail polish it a bit. I have the toy, and I think the playvalue is in the amount of modes it got.

    I must add that I got my Teletran set on clearance from Automaton Toys so that should ease the pain when I assemble it. :p

    I'll add my 2 cents about the Igear playset. It does suck and it does take time to put it together.... BUT..... if you tape the pieces together in the back or, if you want a more permanent solution, you can glue it (like Transbot90210 said above). Once you tape it or glue it, it fixes 99.999% of the problems. And if you skip the pain of trying to do it without the tape or glue this set is horrible. If you jump right to taping it or glueing it - this set ROCKS - especially if you got it on clearance like I did on BBTS.

    I was reminded that I once saw a "Trailer" made for MP2 Ultra Magnus & when it combines with Magnus cab, it actually has a smiling face! :lolol 

    Too lazy to go dig up pics for it but some of you boys would know what I meant. :lol
