    Now that you mentioned it, a lot of G1 figures, even today put to shame their modern counterparts.

    Some examples

    Metroplex - skinny and lacking as a city (see main ramp)
    Cyclonus - too skinny
    Trailbreaker - too small
    Hoist - see above

    Dead End. Can't even roll in car mode. (And neither can Brakeneck, either.)

    Skydive but only because mine seems to be made of a lower quality plastic than the other limbs everytime fold his legs out they always pop out of place.

    It's a shame because I really like what they did with him making him beefy and giving hima new unique head.

    Rook is easily my least favorite.
    He's too big and blocky as a limb, vehicle mode is absurd amidst semi-realistic looking guys. Robot mode has massively hollow legs and an overstylized (goofy) head sculpt. Meh.

    That said, I don't hate Rook as a figure, he's just my least favorite of the limbs so far.

    I don't have him but he's definitely my least favorite Protectobot. That being said he makes a killer Leg.

    Wild Rider/Break-neck--could have more than just a Dead End re-color with a new head. Keeping OffRoad as Menasor arm.

    Rooks the protectabot I'm looking forward to the least, I can't get over his stumpy arms.

    Wow...I don't get why people are so down on breakdown, he is one of my favourite ones. The only one I have any real problem with is dead end /streetwise because of the way the arm mode turns out

    After getting Breakdown I see why people dislike him so much. His hip design is so stupid. And his general proportions don't look as good as the most of the other guys.

    Plus, his hips make for a terrible arm mode.
    The only thing he does decently is be a leg.

    I hate Breakdown so much I now Hate Sunstreaker even more just for taking a Character I actually like and using that Godawful mould on him, and adding an Old Man Face, luminous cheap plastic and paint that leeches into it like bleeding dye. Sunny is NOT a dwarf!

    Hastak: please don't make Sideswipe or Jazz suffer using this mould on them. Pretty please promise to buy less Third Party...........

    Can we at least agree breakdown has the coolest weapon and the best foot piece storage if nothing else?
