Nendoroids are way cuter.
To anyone who disagrees, fucking fight me.
Ah, that's a good point. That's actually a pretty clever visual tactic.
I didn't like aoe lockdown at all, such a huge downgrade from the rotf toy.
Look how cool this is...
And how dumb this is...
"Yay another terminator wannabe that looks silver shards of metal shaped like a human and has no car parts!" They even made him a boring lamborghini instead of this
BW Rampage is a cool character, but man does he look ridiculous with that crab mode kibble hanging off the back. I appreciate that the show model was toy accurate, but the poor guy looks so awkward waddling around with half a crab behind his shoulders. He looks like he's gonna fall backwards at any moment.
Is Primal squinting (giving you the look) in that first image?
The lips on Overlord give me the heebie-jeebies
I think that was the point. In which case it succeeded.
Three worst designs in the brand in my opinion, no particular order:
-Wheelie's G1 toy and toy package art. The design in the show itself is fine.
-Autobot protoforms from the 2007 movie.
It's funny, because I like both G1 and the movies, and there are very few designs in either I dislike, but those designs are just ugly and worse than anything else mentioned in this thread.
Bumblebee movie OP. too lanky and alt mode has barely any mass.
I love Jazz but I loathe white sports cars. I would prefer Jazz to be a black or silver Porsche with the blue striping.
same with Wheelejack: would prefer the car in green with white and red accents.
i know they were modeled after real cars but I just don’t care for white cars.
I actually like that figure to be honest. But I see your point
Out of all the hundreds of designs in this franchise, Bayverse Starscream is the only one I actually find to be hideous.
I also dislike Windblade’s kabuki-geisha getup (I’m fine with the character itself) but Bayverse Starscream still looks worse to my eyes
You could sub Jazz for Ricochet/Stepper and still call him Jazz.
My only problem with white car transformers is that the plastic will yellow overtime on the toys.
Designs that don't do it for me are the ones that are too human-like. Cybertron as an alien world shouldn't use the human parallel too much.
The AOE designs with their nanotech fluid-style transformations and their blatant copying of human warriors (Hound as a GI Joe, Drift as a samurai)
A few TFA designs look overly stylized and human-like, though the toys looked as close to the cartoon as they managed (eg Wreck-Gar's skinny physique as a bulky garbage truck).
I agree for a different reason. My problem with both of them is that their colours with all their stripes and livery and such are too eye-catching and unique for a bunch of robots that are supposedly in disguise. Anything but stock-colours doesn't feel right. So yes, it makes for very plain looking cars, but isn't that the point?
One of these as Jazz would be fantastic:
I still don't know what car model Wheeljack could be other than another Lancia. I want something new but except for in DOTM, a Lancia seems to be the only thing that he's been for 30+ years (not counting Wheeljacks in name only like Armada Jack)
Wheeljack as a FIERO! Fieros are always being modified into kit cars and stuff which would fit wheeljack's tinkering. Also the silhouette is sort of close to the lancia and the car is a lot less rare. The only downsides are that it isnt very modern and might catch on fire instantaneously.
Most of the Beast Wars Transmetal designs with the notable exception of Transmetal Megatron (the flying T-Rex one). He was perfect.
Might also get flak but Optimal Optimus also
I liked transmetal cheetor. It was kinda hard telling some of them apart from a dostance though. And optimal optimus had some pros and cons as well.
Tarantulas though. I seriously love the Transmetal Tarantulas design. He feels so sneaky and creepy, and is one of the few Transmetals that feels more expessive than the original design.
Cstching on fire spontaneously and randomly actually sounds quite suitable for the mad scientist.
