    In a recent thread, there was your Best TFs of 2012. I, on the other hand, wanted to know what were the WORST TFs of this year. To start this off, mine would probably be Airachnid.

    Prime Airachnid is the first thing that comes to mind. You know it's bad when the cyberverse and kre-o versions of her are way better.

    Arms Micron is slightly better than the Hasbro version. Not significantly better, though. Micron is the saving grace. :lol

    Airachnid, I wouldn't even take that thing if it only cost a piece of string.

    Not counting the obvious, I'd say PRID Bumblebee is pretty high up there.

    I was debating that, but PRiD Hot Shot was well-executed, and should've been released first.

    Then you factor in how much it costs to import the PoS + Micron into the U.S....and that one single saving grace stops being relevant.

    well, AM Airachnid also offers the ability to do a spider mode without having to do some excessive modding---but still, she's def the worst figure of the line so far.

    Mainly because of her lack of articulation and the wonky arms. Outside of that, I'd have to say RID Bulkhead...just no. A lot of people say 'if the first edition didn't exist...' and no. Regardless of the FE's existence, outside of vehicle mode, RID Bulk looked nothing like Bulkhead, not even close, other than being green and slightly the headsculpt.

    Any answer that isn't Airachnid is exaggerated BS.

    Indeed. That was just a shameful representation that deserves a re-do.

    ...I don't even know how you came to these conclusions. I own all of these (well, not PRID Bee, but Hot Shot), and I think they're all pretty cool toys.

    Won't argue about Airachnid, though.

    If Airachnid isn't on your list you may as well not make one because you won't know what bad toys are if you seriously think Airachnid is not the worst Transformer toy released this year.

    +1 for Airachnid. Kinda goes without saying though.

    I liked airachnid because its the only toy of her, but knockout got me sad the most. He is so cool in the show that the toy was something I looked foward to...and I shed a tear that day when I bought him.

    I don't own Airachnid, so I can't say that toy is the worst.

    Though, I'm pretty sure Optimus Maximus is also on the worst list of 2012.

    I'd also be inclined to believe the FoC Combaticons are also pretty god awful judging by my own experience with them.

    Fall of Cybertron Bruticus. He's like a hat, one side looks amazing, but from any other angle he's thin and hollow.
