Arguably the worst figure to come out of Beast Wars and yet he's still one of my favorites. I love his head sculpt, I love his exceptional leg articulation, I love his colors, I love his big pill bug alt mode and the way it can roll up into a ball, I love his spring loaded pincer jaws and stingers, and I love the rows of tiny bug legs. Sure,his arms are mostly useless in bot mode, but he has so many neat feature to make up for it. I feel like someone really put a lot of work into making him work as a figure. I just think he's a really fun figure.

I dumped a lot of Beast Wars figures to my local geek store to get G1s. But Retrax was one of those I just had to keep. :x

Also, I'm keeping both Armada Sideswipe and Titanium "GI-Joe" Megatron because both of them are SO BAD, they actually become good!

I thought I was the only one that liked the chubby dude.

The Wing Saber Combination is just pure awesomesauce in both modes.

Can't really choose which configuration I like more.

The toy designers hit it out of the park with his combined mode. Still one of my favorite combining figures to date. I lowkey wished they had gone the Gundam Age-1 route and had multiple brickbots and drones that served different purposes in the combination. Would it have been cheesy and an obvious plot at selling toys? Yes. Would I have given into it? Yes.

For me? ROTF Rampage. Not a good toy by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love him so. Interesting transformation, neat bulldozer mode and an interesting, if kinda terrible, robot mode.

Mixmaster from ROTF for me. He's spindly and gangly-looking, but I like the guy. I find the transofmration to not be as difficult as some have said.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I realize that I have in fact lot of "guilty pleasure" TFs.
I wonder if part of the reason I love them is because they're hated by the others.

What do you think of these ? among my faves :

WP_20170805_15_52_04_Pro.jpg



I'll always love the energon deluxes.
I'm not blind, I see they're far from being perfect aesthetically speaking, but they're fun. Fun to play with, fun to transform, fun to combine.


Same for the Go! who didn't got lot of love, I'm a bit sad for them.
I've been able to get all 7 at cheap price because of that : excikaiser-s-collection-p1881801.php#p1881801

I too, love the Energon "duocons". Some pairing work better than others, but it's a lot of fun to mix and match.

Yeah, Go! is one of those lines that really shouldn't be fun considering how tedious and top heavy it is to combine them, but I couldn't help buying them all (just need a black Kenzan to really be complete). The triple combinations is just too unusual of a concept for me to pass on them.

I also like the Energon Dinobots, I just wish they could have made Grimlock somehow bigger.

I absolutely hate the character, but I really like the toy for some reason. I only ever had three (Basic) Fuzors (I don't count Tigerhawk as a Fuzor)Quickstrike, Air Hammer and Terrorgator. Really fond of all of them.

When your guilty pleasure transformer is so strong that you need to get his expensive repaint too :

I think my figure for this post is TF1 Movie Dreadwing. Weird proportions and submarine-hanging-off-jet, but he was my first TF ever and his cool bot mode holds a special place in my heart.

Even if it's not worth much, never get rid of it. The first TF one own is always special............ That is, if you are not a "mad scientist" like me since childhood! :twisted:

I honestly wish the figure was better, because that car mode is really cool- we don't often see "normal" cars in Transformers. They're all muscle cars or sports cars generally.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm going to have to say Robots in Disguise Bruticus. You know, that horrible toy that was left over from Beast Machines and turns into unfiltered ass in every mode.

He's so blasted ugly that I can't help but love him.
