Transformers Animated Voyager Optimus Prime
Most of the movie figures I have
OT: RotF Leader Megatron. I prefer the Premium 2007 or even the normal 2007 version over the RotF a billion times.
I don't hate much, especially if the majority seems to likes it. Best I got is where I don't get the excitement about some hyped figure. - like anything named Lockdown.
Any an all movie figures. So unappealing , and do nothing for me. They could add as much chrome as they want to there DOTM OP an it still looks like a giant red and blue heap of trash.
(has anybody said this yet?) Classics Starscream/The Classics seeker mold in general. It's an alright mold and the Jet mode is great, but even in '06 it felt mediocre. Compared to the then recent Energon Starscream, Classics Starscream felt awkward and stiff. I think it's popularity was simply due to it being the most accurate looking to G1 Starscream figure out there at the time, and continuously being redecoed into every possible Seeker ever.I think, much like what happened with that awful Robot Masters Starscream, when a better deluxe mold comes along, the mold will be dropped so fast.
For that matter, most of the Universe 2.0 deluxes. HasTak tried way too hard to make the figures as complicated as movie 1/ROTF figures and the results lacked the elegance of the first classics series on the whole. Lots of flaps and panels everywhere. Generations has thankfully gotten past that look.
Generations WfC Optimus Prime and Megatron, imo, lack a lot of personality and just feel way too generic. As figures themselves, they're great, but they don't stand out as the characters to me.
RoTF Lockdown: Just feels way too gangly and awkward looking for my tastes
2010 Battle Blades Bumblebee: yeah, he's the most movie accurate deluxe...but that's not necessarily a plus, to me. I prefer the Movie 1 Concept Camaro deluxe or the DoTM standard/"Murderbee" deluxe.
There's not many, but for me it would be the first Masterpiece Optimus mold (which was blown out of the water by the new one), RotF Leader Optimus Prime (which was too complicated for it's own good), and everything ever made by a 3rd Party's (cause honestly, in my eyes, everything they do is shit).
I don't hate Generations Springer & Blitzwing their robot modes look awesome.. neither toy is fun to transform or really play with.
Most modern Transformers. The deluxe cars are too large and the jets are too small. I slagging hate deluxe cars!!! The Diaclones still feel like actual models compared to the toylike modern TF's.
I despise Legends. They gradually replaced Scouts. I really hate the Legends that got repaints that their larger counterparts didn't. Blades, I'm looking at you. Legends Blades was G1 coloured unlike his Voyager self.
I despise TF's like Prime Bulkhead, ROTF Wheelie or most Animated figures. Any modern stylised TF that look like generic robots. Transformers have lost their classic look that was part of their identity. No way Bulkhead or Wheelie would have been released as an 80's Tf. They look horrible and generic like something from Wall-E or Robots. WTF?
I can't stand BH Ultra Magnus.
I'm not a fan of the Classics Seeker mold. Of the ones I own, I only ever opened up Skywarp... I own Retail Thundercracker, Thrust, and Dirge, but I never felt the need to open them up (and consequently they're in my pile of To Do along with a bunch of other figures I bought on a whim). After the very first time I transformed him I felt I could never bring myself to fiddle with something so resistant to actually moving parts.
Everything from WFC or FOC!!!! I don't know what it is about those figures..its all the odd angles and shapes I guess. That Bruticus combiner is the perfect example of those awful figures! I have to admit though I do think I'm going to purchase Metroplex someday.
Oh yea I almost forgot I hate beast wars, transforming fur, even more!
.. don't mean to offend anyone just my personal opinion..
He’s my favourite deluxe. Love the character, the F1 alt mode, the fan nods, the aesthetic, the possibility … all in he’s just fantastic figure - certainly on my top 5 list of TF toys and I've always got the impression he's a well liked figure by the majority of fans.
I will nominate one of his line mates to this list though - Classics Voyager Optimus Prime.
I have problems with this toy, I don’t like his alt mode, doesn’t have the lines or the angles that I would want and just seems squashed, but it’s the bot mode that really loses points with me. His proportions seem off, his torso is too short compared to his legs, I don’t like the head sculpt, I don’t like either gun but by far and away my biggest problem with the toy is his arm kibble … it completely ruins the toy.
Good thing Generations Metroplex isn't FoC Metroplex then!
For some reason I thought "Generations" Metroplex was based off of "FOC" Metroplex. Am I wrong?
Transformers Generations Japan - TG23 Fall of Cybertron - Metroplex
It says it in the title too.
G1 toys. So unplayable and stupid-looking.
FE Arcee. I love the figure, but it's inferior compare to the RID version. The colors are better, though.
RID Ratchet. Again not bad, but did nothing for me.
The original TFGO stuff. It's ugly Brave nonsense that looks even worse than it did in the 80's.
Classics seekers. The plane mode is okay (JUST okay), but the robot mode sucks. It's almost a bricky as G1 toys... which I infinitely prefer to classics seekers (been meaning to pick up a G1 seeker for awhile now to see if I like that better). Compared to the other modern seeker sets (Masterpiece, Animated, FOC, and FE Prime), the Classics seekers just seem lacking.
Also, RTS Jazz is kinda over-hyped to me. Not bad, but definitely near the bottom of my Classics Autobot team.
I'd like to add MP Seekers. I don't even like the revised MP-11.
Generations Metroplex is based on the IDW iteration. I kinda wish he had the FoC version's face, though. Prob just a typo, I guess.
Oh boy, this will be a FUN list. Granted, a lot of these aren't from me personally playing with them, but purely my personal hatred(s) for them.
-Almost everything G1. The sole exceptions, pretty much, are the G1 Magnus cab, because I liked the whiteness, and Prime himself. Otherwise, while I played with them as a kid, I realize now they are utter bricks, and I cannot stand the general aesthetic and lack of playability / posing. Note: while I would nominally count G2 in this as well, the Cyberjets gain a favorable review (and I do want to rebuy the Decepticon Cyberjets) by simple virtue of not only looking cool, but being playable too.
-BW Magnaboss and his components. Looks goofy, individual modes look freakishly alien, and most of him is just Ironhide with the other two clipped in. Tripredacus is much better.
-A lot of the non-show BW beastformers. I hate several of the organic ones in particular. I'm not a fan of dogs, for example (not that I dislike them, just don't want one personally and dislike when people think you're a monster for not wanting a dog), so stuff like the K-9 mold do nothing for me. Same concept with wolf-formers, and for the most part lion-formers.
-Every BW Dinobot toy. I like the character alright, but his toys have never done him justice as far as I'm concerned, and they look absolutely bizarre with how bulky it is and the I WILL EAT YOU PERHAPS? face the raptor mode has.
-Almost every Bumblebee toy. The Cybertronian Bumblebee from WFC/FoC and maybe Battle Blades are excluded from this list due to how they don't speak (Bumblebee usually annoys the heck out of me when he does), and the fact that they have neat, compacting forms.
-Deluxe / Leader Brawl (TF2007). The toy itself isn't bad, but I hate the absolutely ridiculously stupid looking head sculpt enough to consider not buying him. It's not a hate, unlike most toys where I either love or hate them, but he's noted here because I'm always exceptionally waffly when it comes to putting his Leader class on the wishlist.
-Animated Lockdown. Anything Lockdown. He's a mediocre character who was too popular for his own good, and I never liked how any of his toys looked. The Stunticon redeco was pretty good though.
-Speaking of Animated: Sentinel, Jazz, Ratchet, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, Starscream + redecos, Wreck-Gar. Yes, I don't like any of them.
-Minicons, Legends, etc. I can deal with Scout / Basic size stuff, but anything smaller is debatably worthless to me. The only possible exception I'm considering are the few Minicons associated with figures (like Leader-1 for Armada Megatron), but beyond that I don't see why people have any real fun with these tiny little guys. They're also overpriced nowadays, far as I'm concerned.
-TF2010 Wreck-Gar. Maybe I should just say I don't like Wreck-Gar? I don't think there's been one of his toys I've wanted...
-Drift. Looks dumb. Sorry.
-Most of the coneheads. See Drift. Exception: Thrust! Don't know why but I like him, usually.
