    Agreed.

    I can say that this fandom has a very bad taste in bots.

    Probably every single G1 toy.

    There. I said it.

    They're not well articulated, and for the most part don't have good proportions. I understand that they were the best they could make back then, and I understand that those who grew up with them would like them in part due to nostalgia, but I personally prefer updated versions of the characters.

    Also, Alternators and Human Alliance. They're good figures, but I don't like the larger scale.

    After getting Prime Wheeljack, my love for his CHUG counterpart took a bit of a nosedive.

    Screen accuracy and paint apps are overrated for me, and the latter is quite often overpriced.

    As long as the toy has a good transformation and decent quality, I'm fine. If they can pull off the screen accuracy in the design, then awesome.

    And then there's the paint apps - I will always pick the Hasbro version over the Takara version because of the price. People really tore the mainline TFP Arcee a new one because she's supposedly the wrong shade of blue, despite being an alright toy. Besides, I'd rather spend $10-12 on the wrong shade of blue than twice as much on the one from Japan with the correct shade. Same toy, so I might as well save.

    Ok I'll play your evil game of corruption. Energon Shockblast. I love Shockwave so I thought "I must own this". I bought this at retail and owned it for a while before selling it. Its very bad. Even worse is seeing him in with a lot of classic collections. Bad idea.

    All Beast Wars, Bay Movie (except for Buster Prime, the only decent figure to come from the movie figures IMO), and Prime toys...

    I was just looking at mine, and I'm actually going to agree with you.

    The green paint apps are terribad, and the gun arm is a crime against humanity.

    I like the direction they went with both of the altmodes, and the body/head shape in general were very Shockwave, but they got so close to doing it right that it makes the bad design points stick out even worse.

    He's great custom fodder, though.

    I am not a Beast Wars toy fan. There are a handful I like, sure, but overall, they're like fodder for nothing to me. That says zero about what I think of the show, as I enjoy the show.

    Mighty Muggs - I can barely understand the appeal aside from it being "super-deformed" and something else featuring certain characters.

    Reprolabels sets for Alts Meister, Wheeljack, and Mirage, as they make the alt modes look stupid for "geewun" sake. (Note: I'm a HUGE G1 fan)

    Alternity Bumble and Cliff mixed in with Alts/BTs

    Most Animated toys.
    Most Legend/ Cyberverse toys.
    The WfC Generations except Megatron
    And it's not that I DISLIKE it, but I don't find RoTF Leader Optimus to be the perfect Godsend everyone else seems to.

    ALOT of the bayformers, TF prime toys. But their is some parts of these that I have a few of the figures cause the designs just came out PERFECT for my collection. I have not bought any prime toys but their is a few I will end up getting. So I gues you could say I am 89% dislike the figures from those lines.

    Universe Drift : He's a lame interpretation of a lame concept;the anime white ninja...with the annoying superhuge shoulder pads, the typical Japanese supersmall torso and the annoying headsculpt.

    Universe Jetfire : Those legs. Seriously impaired. Imo, this one doesn't do any justice to either the original Valkyrie nor the cartoon model.
