WORST Transformers of the Decade


BaCon

Recommended Posts

Worst line: Oh that's tough. The most DISAPPOINTING was Titanium, especially Rodimus and to a lesser degree UM and Scourge. I'm tied between Armada, Animated, and Binaltech/ Alternators. I did like a few Animated figures, and some Armada, so I vote BT/A. Alt Prime was horrible, and the rest bored me.

Worst Bot: Armada Sideswipe. Dear God. Think of the children...

Worst Con: Armada Sideways. Best new character prior to Lockdown; worst mold.

Worst Misc: Energon Kicker. SuperLink Kicker was awesome.

Worst Line: I would have to say Alternity. The figures are awesome, but something doesn't add up when you pay $60 for a toy for the size of a toy that usually cost $10 elsewhere.

 

Worst Bot: Cybertron Backstop. 'Nuff Said

 

Worst Con: I guess it would be a tie between '07 Movie Barricade and Brawl. I can't tell whose worse. The one whose arms won't stay in or the one with the terrible gimmick that would not stay in place.

 

Worst Misc: I give that to the ROTF video game. I didn't like the pace and style of the game. I prefer the 07 game.

I have a soft spot for armada since it renewed my interest in all things tf. That said...

 

Worst Line: The Bayformers

 

Worst Autobot: Armada Scavenger (its like they weren't even trying, there are G1 figs more poseable)

 

Worst Con: Movie Brawl+Classics Galvatron(tie)

 

Worst Series:(tie) Energon (just repellent)+ All things Beast related (since they killed my interest in tfs)

worst transformer? Easily, it's the whole powercore combiner line. Can we not get a decent combiner figure from hasbro? I haven't seen a single good figure yet.

 

and your never gonna see one!! pessimistic as that is. Their recent track record proves as much and that's not gonna change.

I swear Hasbro and 3rd parties are in kahoots with each other to keep fans glued to there seats and make a profit......i have no proof of this of course but what other excuse can there be for Hasbro being so blatant in their inability to design a anatomically correct gestalt. How else can FP and whom ever else have the machinery to produce so much product? I don't think fan boys have that kinda technology at there disposal...

I'm talking outta my ass here but the thought has crossed my mind.

I have quite a few figures that I'll bash about:

 

The entire line of Energon Autobots (really, they look dumb and have horrible leg articulation).

 

Cybertron Starscream and Scattershot (Starscream as he's too big & for a robot his size, he shouldn't have 17 points of articulation. Scattershot as he's an overall wuss until his upgrade *in the show* and his toy is worse then Starscream's is, no leg articulation? WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK?!)

 

07' Movie prime is just too chubby for his own good. Bumblebee, despite being a decent enough toy has faulty shoulder plates that pop off (I lost them now, so I don't care)

 

Animated Grimlock has his robot head visible, Lugnut's too small, and the Dinobots have no place to store their weapons (granted, Swoop can store his mace on his foot, but still, where Snarl/Slag and Ol' Grimmy keep theirs is a mystery).

 

RoTF Fallen has a bad Alt mode (so does Ravage). And Rampage is just... crap. I got him as a gift though.

 

As for Toyline, I'd say Energon. Just no Hasbro.

 

For shows/movies, I wasn't an avid watcher of Beast Machines, so I won't go there, I like RiD, the 2007 movie and Animated for what they are: Cheesy, mostly good natured fun. Armada and Cybertron had their faults But I like the former thanks to Starscream & Unicron, Cybertron got me back into the series proper (I got 11 figures from that line *own 8 now, Leobreaker's gone, I sold my Undermine and I lost Ransack somewhere*), so I can't complain.

 

But what I hate is Revenge of the Fallen and Energon. Let's run down the facts for each:

 

Energon- Crappy CG, Bad voice acting, more annoying characters (I wanted Ironhide to get his ass kicked by the end of the first 10 episodes) Shitty writing (I wanted the writers to die with Ironhide, and these guys also wrote Bakugan for those who don't know), too many things going on, etc.

 

Overall: A very shitty series.

 

As for Revenge: Bad (being kind here) humor, not enough robots kicking each other's asses, The Fallen was useless, the CG began to falter on any robot that wasn't either Optimus Prime, Jetfire or Devastator near the end, Soundwave raped a fuckin' satellite, Megan Fox is only good for sex factor apparently, Leo should have been the one to be killed by Alice; not Sam, Simmon's crotch was something no-one needed to see, the whole Megatron/Fallen relationship, Starscream's voice modulating (as much as I like Charlie Adler's performance, those sound editors and voice director really sucked)... Geez, this has a lot more bad things about it then Energon had.

 

Overall: An extremely shittastic movie that Michael Bay made so he can whore us out of our money and wipe his ass with it.

 

So yeah, my opinion right there.

We can all agree here that ROTF is very possibly the worst movie in existence.

 

I like to think that somewhere, an ancient alien race of intergalactic super beings overseeing our lives at one point considering gifting upon us interstellar flight into the stars... until they saw that fucking movie. Then they laughed themselves into extinction.

I've seen worse, compared to Meet The Spartians, Terminator 3, The Golden Compass & The Cat in The Hat, This movie looks like frikkin' Citizen Cane.

 

But yeah, it is horrible and the only redeeming factor is the Prime vs. Megatron/Starscream/Blackou... er Grindor forest battle.

    • No. There's no way. This is pretty much someone's wish fulfillment list. There has to be another April Fool's Day that happens every June 24th that I'm just not aware of. I don't believe this list one bit. Especially since Legacy is supposed to be a one and done. It's a supposedly a filler line to finish off WFC and begin the next series/trilogy. Crasher? Nope. Hasbro is too scared to use the name...or are they? Road Ranger had his name didn't he? I hope it's not from either Mirage mold though and is instead from Dragstrip. It would be so easy to retool that into a Crasher that even has the front of the vehicle point out back behind her. I still don't see this happening though. Shadow Striker? Most likely Cyberverse and not Universe/OTFCC because then we'd also need Roulette. The Cyberverse character is now the G1 version so it makes the most sense. I don't see it happening. Never mind, it will be ROTF Shadow Striker lol. An upscaled SS86 Wheelie done in black and red. Just what everyone wanted right? Well, I want a black and red SS86 Wheelie and I haven't even seen him yet. Hot Rod? What we would all want is a retool of Override as IDW Hot Rod like the MMC figures but what we'll get is a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod instead. We'll get a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod eventually. It's only a matter of time with that one. What's next to add to that list, a retool of Cosmos or even Origin Bumblebee as Path Finder? Why not both? Blue Cosmos (no not the Blue Cosmos from Gundam) and grey Bumblebee. Maybe Smallfoot as a retool of an upcoming RID 2015 Strongarm too? Core Soundblaster? No shit. There's no way they're going to not do that eventually. Core class Dinobots? No way. I'd love it but no way. Needlenose? The one who's always on the votes but never wins? Hasbro is just toying with us with this one. There's no way they're going to make one now. They want to see the fans cry about it too much now. And he's downgraded from voyage to deluxe to pour more salt on the wounds. Hot Shot? Armada Hot Shot? There's nothing saying it's going to be Armada Hot Shot. When it's been an alternate universe character they always put that in its name. This could be Armada HS, Energon HS, Cybertron HS, RID 2001 HS, Animated HS. So which one is it? It's none of them because it's not happening. Deluxe Junkions with a number denoting future retools and redecos? What so a reissue of the RTS mold? The CW mold? They already made a voyager Junkion from Wreck Gar. I don't see why they'd need to do a deluxe at this point. Maybe for Detritus or Nancy? It just doesn't make sense. Tarn? Yeah no. It just doesn't seem like Hasbro want's to touch the DJD. Although we are getting a nice Jhiaxus though. But no. Just no. Leo Prime? Again, this whole list just sounds like wish fulfillment. There's no way. And then what? We get white, black and purple redecos? Thundertron, Alpha Trizer and GO Prime? Hasbro don't make such deep cuts for redecos and retools. Granted they've started to go pretty deep lately but not Leo Prime redeco deep. Prime Skyquake..............actually, I don't see why not with this one. But they'll probably use either Seeker mold or Jhiaxus for it though. Don't expect the beefcake he was. Although I would like him, Dreadwing and Megaplex who don't break. Not that mine are broken...that I know of... Oh wait. I brushed over the fact that it says leader and not voyager. No way it's happening now. I just completely assumed it was voyager as it made the most sense. For a leader Skyquake it would need to be Euro G1 for Hasbro to most likely do it, not Prime. Armada Megatron? I don't see why not with him either. New mold and all. This one I believe fully. Galvatron and Megazarak redecos too this time. Most of these figures are just too on point for what fans what for Hasbro to do them.  I would love to be wrong though. Well, other than Soundblaster as that's bound to happen sooner rather than later. I really hope I'm wrong. I want some of these so much. Watch I'm wrong on everything but that means no Armada Megatron as I think that one is real.
    • Transformers Velocitron is not even shipping yet, and JTPrime17 flies in with newly leaked listings offering up many spoilers for what is coming our way in 2023. First off, IF you liked what's going on with Velocitron there is Wave 2 coming too. Next, Legacy has lots more in store next year with some new nods to Cybertron, Prime, G1, and Aw yeah, Armada fans will be getting their fix with at least one leader exposed.

    • Toyhax really surprised us with the Conversion Set to change Siege Sideswipe to G2 Go-Bot Optimus Prime.

    • Target's Summer Geek-Out dropped their new Transformers X Tonka Mash-Up set, the "Tonkanator", with official images and details. The G2 Yellow Devastator is rebranded as a Tonka team with logos and all at a price of $104.99 USD. What should be immediately obvious is Hasbro owns both of the brands, so it is an interesting idea that may or may not resonate with fans. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
