    Tie between Universe Galvatron and Powerglide. I can't decide which one I hate more.

    I'd have to say the animated bumper battlers are horrible. They are the only part of the line I didnt buy this year!

    Supreme Animated Optimus Prime

    The worst ones I've bought this year are definitely Animated Starscream and Lockdown. I was pretty disappointed with Powerglide overall but I still like it better than most of the Animated toys I have. Toys that looked so bad I didn't buy them are Animated Blitzwing and Universe Blaster.

    Activators Lockdown. I had the choice between the Deluxe and the Activator. I chose poorly. I haven't seen the Deluxe in stores since then.

    Universe Ironhide. As much as I hated Galvatron and Animated Snarl, those guys at least manage to look pretty good in both modes.

    Given how awful Hasbro's white paint apps have been in both Animated and Universe, their version of Ratchet could very well be worse.

    Toys that I bought were Movie Wingblade and Barricade. I later got rid of these because of my dislike. I didn't want Galvatron so I didn't buy him, he's probably my least fav of this year.

    Once you look past the idea that Universe Galvatron would have been bigger as a voyager/ultra, he really isn't that bad.

    I have to vote for Animated Voyager Megatron. As much as I try to like the toy....I just can't.

    Universe Galvatron. Mine already came with the right arm out of its ball joint. Still doesn't stay in.

    Worst that I bought:
    Activators Lockdown
    Activators Bulkhead
    Animated Stealth Lockdown
    Animated Voyager Starscream
    Animated Swoop

    Worst that I didn't buy:
    Universe Galvatron
    Animated Deluxe Bumblebee
    Animated Deluxe Lockdown
    Animated Megatrons (all of them)
    For me the size plays no role in my dislike of him. It's his fugly, disproportionate bot mode that I can't find any love for. The one word that I always think of when I see him is "Mess".

    Ebay:
    Animated Voyager Starscream, Deluxe BB, Grimlock - all been sold off since.

    I gave TFA the old college try, but man, those are some ugly toys.

    Universe Cheetor. What an oddly proportioned and huge pointless backpack piece of crap he is.
