    studio series jazz. for a line devoted to accuracy, they sure seemed to forget that he didn't have a giant backpack in the movie.

    Thrilling 30's Blitzwing. His bot mode is fine(?), but his alt-modes are kinda trash to me. I'm looking to get his Titans Return counterpart to replace him.

    Armada Sideswipe. Always Armada Sideswipe. Transformed from the nicest-looking alt mode in the series to a bipedal car-crash.
    As a bonus, he came with the worst Minicon in the line.

    in a bitter irony they had one of the coolest integrations with his minicons bike mode flipping out of the trunk.

    sold him on eBay for 99¢

    i mean, just... look at him. or don't. i'd understand if you look away.

    dishonorable mentions to Armada Hotshot, Super Optimus Prime, Cyclonus, Demolisher and just about any of the Energon Autobot Deluxe and Voyagers (Energon 'bots sucked, but the 'cons were some of the best ever)

    Revenge of the Fallen Megatron. Inaccurate robot design, ugly colors, and obnoxiously large back pack.

    Rotf Rampage IMO is the pinnacle of messy engineering and gets my vote.

    Universe Cheetor - I bought it with thoughts of replacing the original BW Cheetor in my display, but no. The original hit closer to the animation model and had much more play value.
    Most of the Unicron trilogy toys - Most of the figures are gimmick first and bot design last (with several things in between).

    I've never really had a bad figure until POTP Starscream, never again. The design was horrible, transformation was a bit of a pain for suck a lackluster "alt" more, combined mode was a floppy mess as the torso refused to stay together, and lastly the horrible proportions. Took him back a week later

    Armada Sideswipe. So many things wrong with this toy but the back halves of the car roof that just hang off the robot legs is unforgivable. If someone had just made those pieces rotate to cup the robot calves the toy would have been ok. & they just kept on releasing it!

    BM supreme Cheetor. This toy was madeat a time when all the transformers toys were designed with gimmicks or play features, usually that you would sacrifice aesthetics. It had play features in both robot arms- one was pop out claws & the other had palm missiles. Due to that Cheetor didn't hold his sword right. The robot was a balancing act to stand. The robot head had nice sculpting though.

    BM Nightscream. Hasbro made this toy because they were mad at all of us or something.

    Another vote for Armada Sideswipe.

    BM Silverbolt. That thing was crap.

    Also, going back to G1, Pretender Classic Jazz. Horrible engineering on the way his chest folds down; it blocks his whole face and looks really stupid. I honestly thought there was something wrong with it when I transformed it for the first time.

    ...venus frogtrap is a bit of a disappointment, too: it's generous to call that limited articulation a transformation...

    TLK Berserker. God that thing is horrible. I paid $4 for the thing and feel like I paid $20 too much! He won't transform into his alt mode properly, is a pain to pose and keep standing, and is just no fun.

    I was trying to figure out which would be the worst for me... and then you mentioned this one. Yes. Demolishor was the worst.

    When I was a kid I usually managed to like my toys in spite of their faults, even trash like BW Drill Bit, but the one that I never liked was Energon Demolishor. Part of it was probably prejudice at them perverting my favorite Armada toy into this new form, but I also just learned last year that my copy was misassembled, which explains why he could never transform correctly lol.

    Cyberverse Acid Storm sucks too

    How so?
