    I know this could be a touchy subject, so let’s try to keep things civil guys :thumb 

    I had to limit it to 13, so some minor lines had to be left out…

    Armada/Energon. After RiD, there was no excuse for what those lines did.

    Crossovers. I tend to call them (particularly the Star Wars toys) "Transformers: Abortions".

    I would've said G2 a few weeks ago but I recently got the cyberjet Strafe who is actually a neat little figure and has surprisingly good articulation. There are a few other interesting toys in the line as well.

    I've heard some bad things about Titanium but I don't have any of those...

    As much as I like G1 a lot of the toys are pretty bad but I do like the variety of the line such as the headmasters, targetmasters, etc.



    So I'm gonna say Armada's the worst even though I like the series and it's what got me back into Transformers after Beast wars ended. The toys just have some really bad designs such as Sideswipe, Smokescreen, and Hot shot... They also had very limited articulation.

    Energon good idea on paper but the execution was horrible.

    Movie RPMs, they're just glorified Hotwheels/Matchbox cars, but I still keep getting them...

    Titanium. Poster children for die-cast toys gone horribly, horribly wrong.

    I can't rip Energon when my issue with the line is mostly the Autobot side of the line; there are some solid molds otherwise. Armada has its charm for me, though I know not for others.

    Out of all of the "TRANSFORMERS" toylines, Beast Wars does the less for me. Sure, there are a handful of cool toys. Overall, they just don't have a lasting value to me, as most of them have a very kitsch feel overall to me.

    I voted for Crossovers, but you know what? Just because I don't like a particular line (Beast Wars, Beast Machines, I'm looking at you_ doesn't mean they're the "worst". The great thing about TF is the diversity.

    How come Alternators isn't on here?

    Had to go with Armada, I can't believe that someone selected Classics as the worst.

    Titaniums, on account of poor design & engineering. Soundwave, I'm looking at you - gravity is not your friend.

    I went with pretty much the Unicron Trilogy toys, though I think Armada is the best of the three. I would have gone with the beast series, but at least they were trying something different. The trilogy moulds are just blocky, poor renderings.

    I went with Crossovers, but if we're talking strictly Transformers then I would have to say the Unicron Trilogy, the king of obnoxious gimmicks.

    One poor mould does not equate to a bad line. Every line has the odd complete turkey.

    I voted for 2 lines. Crossovers because they do nothing for me, and Titaniums because the die cast often made them unposable, chipped, floppy rubbish.
