    Transformers Authentics Bumblebee. Hollow piece of plastic with no articulation. I have seen dollar store knockoffs that look better.

    I'm broke or I would offer to buy him from you. My son had the Bee version of that mold back in the day and I actually liked it.

    PRID Knockout, only had him for a day until I just got bored with him. The figure just does not look as good as in the show, boring colours, a single pole for his back and he just feels cheap in hand! Thankfully I returned him the next day, and got FOC Fireflight/Air raid which was a more satisfying figure.

    Well, there is not much to discuss with your approach. Good luck!

    FOC Impactor I think.

    I'll always defend him.

    Ok, he's terrible as display figure on adult's shelves.

    But as a toy ? he's awesome, easy to transform and full of gimmicks.

    I'd love a scout version of him or at least a repaint of CW legend Groove.

    Though the third party head and swords do improve him, Voyager Bludgeon still as a terrible robot mode. Every time you move a limb, there's a feeling of resistance. Not stiffness exactly but definitely not fluid.

    Groove is nothing like sideswipe. Unless you mean his minicon nightbeat or sideways

    I was wondering about this through the whole thread. I have Elita-1 in my tiny collection and she's pretty decent. Getting everything to fit right in alt mode is a bit fiddly and I hate the huge number of stickers, but I like her.

    I just hope we start seeing a bit more variety in female bots in the Generations line. It's kinda hard to make decent, varied toys when there's the insistence on making them have the same generic skinny human female bodies. That's why I picked up a RiD Strongarm a few years back, it was just cool seeing a lady bot that looked like a bot and not a metal human with kibble.

    Not that it's going to stop me getting the full Orthia combiner set and the Siege Chromia, because I'm a sucker. XD

    Here's Armada Sideswipe's Universe repaint Treadshot.

    treadshot-universe.jpg

    Here's a custom of Treadshot I made using CW Groove.

    20170825_132025.jpg

    I took some liberties repainting the arms due to the transformation.

    Both figures have heads with similar design cues and I thought the bike mode was a nice nod to the Mini-con partner. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I do have a Sideswipe custom in the works from the Groove mold.

    Transformers I hated... I don't think I ever truly hated any. Some were disappointing, though.

    TR Wolfwire - three copies and not a single one with an intact hinge for the head. Each has at least a crack of two, one is missing pieces. It took getting the WJ Osko to get an intact one.

    RTS Wreck Gar - one handle snapped off right away, he's very fiddly to transform, the shoulders don't let in well, the hands have stress marks seemingly by existing. It looks damn cool, though.

    Airachnid - the articulation, or rather lack of thereof. Just sigh.

    Scattershot? Or whatever the CW Silverbolt retool was named. Torso mode shoulders refused to stay pegged in properly.

    TLK Steelbane - te dragon parts limit articulation and the chest pegs out of you look at it funny.

    Both Prime Voyager Megatron's - back pegs it really easily and his the hell do you not give a modern voyager figure elbow rotation?!

    I see lots of folks hate BM Nightscream... I'm actually looking for one, so PM me if you wanna get rid of it.

    I have Classics Prowl. He DOES look that ugly in robot mode.

    Silverstreak, with the black and silver made a MUCH better use of this mold...and he has nice painted missiles.

    I think the intention was original charecters. At least wave 1

    Dunno if this is the worst one I have got, I sold most of the really bad ones. But it's the first one I thought of.
    upload_2020-8-27_20-48-50.png

    Loose legs, horrible feet he can't stand on, pegs that don't peg in making the arms a pain to pose, giant ass backpack, panels that pop off too easily, uninspired transformation, bland alt mode and not even close to movie accurate. Fuck this thing.
