    The only good thing about that figure is that it makes it easy for those who use CW Wheeljack to make a CW Slicer.

    I don't get some people's obession with complex figures that take hours to transform, It's just not my thing, I like simple shit, to the point of that ss-32 optimus being a confusing mess the first time.

    I like to complexity when it makes sense. I love seeing how much, say, ROTF Prime, moves around and see where everything winds up in one mode from another. I love the engineering aspect of these figures and seeing how much they can do The likes of MP-44, however, with a bloatedly complex transformation feel complex for the sake of parts-count, rather than to genuinely and intuitively translate the on-screen models. The Magic Square and Transform Element do that much better with many fewer steps.

    I never transform my transformers unless they're combiners or they have beast mode.

    I feel like there's a difference between complex and just plain tedious figures.

    I think it just stems from my lack of interest in cars or aircrafts like they never really clicked with them that much even as a kid. I love transformers because the concept of a robot transforming into something is cool but I personally never really need to see what they look like in vehicle mode unless they combine then I wanna see the combiner mode cause that's awesome. I've always loved animals so a robot having a beast mode rocks my world but ironically i don't own a lot of beast wars stuff as I feel they're charming sure but outdated for example I love POTP Terrocons.

    With the exception of some of the earliest show designs, the Beast Machines Maximals toys were actually pretty good and darned creative.

    I hate round bulbous heads with the eyes taking up 60% of the face. Why won't this ugly trend die already?

    Optimus is iconic with the mouthguard. Plus, his head design and overall silouette can be tweaked a lot without losing what makes Optimus iconic. What stands out to casuals about Megatron is "that's the one that turned into the gun, right?"

    That, and (apt since this is the unpopular opinion thread) his G1 head is a mess. You have to make it *just right* to make it look good. His g1 overall design really isnt that impressive honestly. I mean, look at Prime, Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave for example. They've all have various figures but no matter how many changes they make, stylistic flourishes etc, they're recognizable as themselves. But Megatron's basic design doesn't really allow for innovation. There's also the thing about Megatron constantly dying and being brought back or being upgraded into something else.


    I don't much care for the head. Besides it's look, it's too big. Rest of the figure is aces to me tho.

    God the Funko Pops and all their ilk. I can’t stand those things. The giant heads are bad enough but the black soulless eyes are just creepy. The only one that looked even halfway decent on was their Jaws figure because , surprise, sharks have black eyes to begin with.

    Do all people who hate them only look at the old ones? Now those do look bad but now the new ones are so close to who they are trying to imitate it is hugely impressive.
