    I've yet to see an updated triple changer I didn't hate.

    Botcon Razorclaw. Seriously, they shouldn't have bothered.

    The design was clearly taken from the Pretender/Legends Grimlock figure.



    Anyway. Chalk me down for Galvatron as well. His size being the least of my concerns. He's a damn tank. I HATE either Megatron or Galvatron being a tank. I wanted a revived servant of Unicron made from the Voyager Megatron, not the Deluxe one.

    Oh, and about the Energon one. Sure it may make a good homage, but it should seriously not be a better homage than the toy that it meant to embody the G1 character.


    Springer is another on my list. Both the BotCon and Universe figures don't evoke enough "Springer" for me. But that's somewhat expected as they're both redecos. I'm not a fan of the FansProject Defender either, as it does almost no update to the original design. They just made a modern 1986 Springer. I don't care for it.


    Can't think of any other figures that I have real gripes about. I seem to be in the minority, but I actually think Henkei Ironhide and Ratchet are great representations of the characters.

    Universe Galvatron, Prowl, Bluestreak, Smokescreen, Ironhide and Ratchet are all pretty crappy figures.

    Do you own the deluxe Cybertronian mold?, or just not like Animated in general?

    Classics Rodimus is crap for starters.

    Universe Ratchet and Ironhide. I'm convinced they could have been done better.

    Universe Galvatron obviously.

    Universe Cheetor.

    Universe Octane.

    Classics Astrotrain was yet another turd. Gotta agree with Nightrain's comment regarding updated triple changers.

    Except that every time I even consider buying that figure, I'm completely turned off by the lower half. The legs just look off, and I'm not a fan of how the fusion cannon is mounted. The overall figure just doesn't have the same "engineered to near perfection" that MP Prime does.

    Aw, I like that figure. I know the leg articulation's a bit odd and the Takara version beats out Hasbro's, but it's still fun.

    This.

    universe dinobot.

    the bw dinobot was almost perfect except the whole bulky legs and big feet sticking out the raptor's chest and stomach, i really like the way they didn't take the lazy way of just using the hind legs for bot legs, i thought all they had to do with universe update was give him thinner legs and feet for better integration with the raptor mode.

    universe dinobot is crap; lazy hindlegs to botlegs, folding arms into chest that's even more conspicuous and uglier than the feet in chest from bw dinobot. i mean why does that rapper have a almost retangular block sticking out his chest, with what appears to be fist holes and claws growing out of it?
