rotf mixmaster looks horrible, unless you miss transform him.
then he's general grievous. and my favorite ROTF decepticon.
although i find that true about a lot of movie figures. they are all usually better if you miss transform them.
As for "Hated" figures that I really like:
Armada Hot Shot- I know it looks goofy, but I always found him a blast to play and fiddle with. I made an unofficial "sled" mode for him, which amuses me to no end. Seriously, fiddling with that mold is almost a compulsion at times.
Prime Knock-out- I LOVE this mold. I find the engineering fun and fascinating. Clever, clever transformation.
Prime FE Vehicon: I love the RiD one too, but I like the FE one for different reasons. The backpack doesn't bother me, and the beefiness works perfectly as my Vehicon Commander.
TFTM '07 Leader Prime: I know he's not "hated", as much as "forgotten and underrated." The trick with this mold is ignoring/overlooking the fact that he's not a very accurate representation of the movie Optimus Prime. As a plain old truck transformer, he kicks a LOT of ass. The vehicle mode is nice and solid, the robot mode is beefy and posable, despite some kibble, and the transformation process is satisfying and involved without being too fiddly or overcomplicated.
Molds I dislike that most people love:
Armada "Bendy" Prime: I just do not like it whatsoever. I don't find it much more "bendy" than the larger one (the regular mode, not the super mode). I think the vehicle mode looks worse than the larger one, and the slightly better articulation does not compensate for the downgrade in size and loss of super mode in my eyes.
G1 Quickswitch: I think the robot mode's proportions are goofy, and the alt modes so much less satisfying that Sixshot. I know it's just my opinion, but holding the two six-changers side-by-side, Quickswitch just screams "half-assed" to me.
Energon swoop is awesome....grimlock is still rubbish. On the flipside, I have soured on the alternators and if I can get to my mums house to get the boxes, theyre going to ebay. Otherwise ill just sell em loose.
I'm a big fan of Knockout and hate Bumblebee's that aren't the TF07, DOTM deluxe, and new Camaro.
This^ he needs to scale right with Soundwave and Blitzwing.
Figures I Like- Foc Bruticus, Foc Jazz, Foc Voyager Soundwave(we need better legends cassettes though), Foc Seeker mode(until we get a voyager then that goes back on Foc Shelf). Aoe Leader Grimlock.
Figures I don't like- RID Thundertron(Mechtech weapon is useless because the sword doesn't lock into place, and the shoulders are weird), and Aoe Voyager Grimlock(leader is more size accurate, other dinos should have been at least voyager with Scorn as a leader class size).
Seriously who doesn't like Orion and the new Megatron and RTS Prime?! Some of you mention them like they're badly percieved, but I've yet to see that to such extent. Both figures are regarded as quite good by most people's standards, and RTS is a good homage that lead to an awesome MakeToys kit and two really impressive repaints (Blue and Scourge).
I guess I never genuinely dislike a figure. I don't care for ROTF constructicons because they are complicated, messy and just don't deliver a satisfactory result. I don't mind Longhaul, though. He's a bit skinny but he's the only tolerable son of a gun. I'm not a fan of DOTM Roadbuster since his head keeps poppin' off. Not a fan of ROTF Sideways because of his weird feet situation with the tiny toe thing...
Now, BW lovers, here's where I get the flak. I... really like Henkei remake of Cheetor......... Think he's perfect for what he set out to do, and he fits in okay if not a bit too big to scale with the newer BW Generations.
ROTF Deluxe Soundwave is the only one I can really think of. I remember he got tons of flack when he first was released. Now with the HA version he's pretty forgotten. I still consider him the best movie version of Soundwave. He can get floppy pretty quickly and things don't peg in as solidly as one would hope, but he's still loads of fun to mess with. Couple that with the dozens of fanmodes he has and he's a pretty good figure.
Have to agree with Gen Springer. He's a good figure, but I just don't see why people gush over him like he was 100% perfect.
Also probably going to get a ton of flack, but AOE Evasion Optimus Prime. I'd put him at eh at best. Truck mode looks okay it's not perfect, but I wouldn't call it crap either. Robot mode I just don't like at all. People gush over how he transformers, but I've seen a few reviews and I just don't see the big deal.
I dislike the G1 Ironhide/ Ratchet, Seeker, Megatron Molds
I really like TFP Deluxe Airachnid!
Really, she's not the greatest toy, but hell, at least we got an Airachnid. I love how she's small, take off her weapons and she looks a stealth helicopter that would be used to drop off Special Forces behind enemy lines. I use her as my Decepticon Ninja. Admittedly, she could use some work, mainly on the feet, but just don't understand why so much hate. Yeah its not what we wanted, but the same could be said about quite a few other figues as well.
I really enjoyed FOC Bruticus and FOC Jazz.
Gen. Mini-Con Assault Team
AoE Strafe. I don't get it.
I like Cybertron Override, and that figure gets so much hate.
Literally what I was thinking lol. When I was recently fiddling around with my movie toys, some of them were frustrating but I was able to figure them out (even Demolishor lol)... but good lord I could NOT figure out RotF Mixmaster >_<
Likes:Animated deluxe Megatron, Beast Hunters Lazerback, and DoTM Barricade
Dislikes: FE RID Prime, the entire Masterpiece line
I dont like the minicon team also
What is wrong with the Masterpiece line??
Expensive. And spotty domestic releases.
In my case, I was one of those burned by waiting for Hasbro's MP10.
Don't care for most of the MPs. Love AOE Galvatron and most of the FOC toyline.
