The last time I did this we talked about our favorite character and toy.  So, lets be rather obvious and ask the simple question.  What character and toy do you hate the most?  And why do you hate them?

Personally, I dispised several of the season 3 toys Wheelie and Blurr in particular.  I always felt that the futuristic cars could have had much better transformation than many of them did. 

And character wise, I would say that I really hated with a passion Powerglide and Warpath.  Powerglide was just such a show off for no good reason.  He generally couldn't out fly the Decpticons, but he sure did talk like he could.  If I had been an Autobot along side him I'd have told him he could talk when he did fly well.  Warpath is a much more simple rage.  He talked like a moron.  He couldn't string three sentinces together without saying at least two BANG, POW, or ZOWWIEs, or some similarly stupid adjective.  At least Wheelie had to be somewhat smart to constantly speek in rhyme.

Blurr & Wheelie sucked the most by far by the toys of Powerglide and Warpath toys were awsome. But you can't help but feel like Hasbro (and other toy design contributers) didn't give much thought to corrisponding the show transformation with the toys like they do now 'days. Since the 80's I can only think 2 toys that didn't fully corrispond with the show, would be Leobreaker and Nemesis Breaker ...Claw Mode.

Interesting question, thanks KW. Hm, wow that's tough.

Least favorite toy? Hm. Well Injector comes to mind, but looking back it really wasn't so bad. I think I'd have to go with RID Bruticus. I remember getting very excited thinking, WOW a nice 100% new-mold, US only, RID toy! AWESOME!!! I got hyped up before seeing any toy pix, thinking it would represent the best that Beast Machines would have been, had the series continued. With mythic beasts, in all their highly evolved techno-organic glory. Instead we got a P.O.C. w/ like two total plastic colors, little if any paint aplication, lousy sculpt, unimaginative transformation, hideous robot... There's just not much to like about this toy.

Least favorite character? It took me a minute because generally there aren't too many characters that really bugged me. But then it dawned on me. True, it's not a Transformer per se, but he was in Transformers and they *did* release a toy of him domestically, so it counts!!! I despise KICKER! Maybe it's the way he shouted every line at the top of his lungs? Maybe it's his dumb$#!T space suit that supposedly gave him the power to wield the several thousand pound Star Saber or take on *any* transformer, maybe it was his ugly manga face which tainted the Energon series (for me), his lamer-than-lame romance with what's-her-face or his disrespect for his fun loving father... Or maybe a combination of all of those and more, that bugged the living daylights out of me. Every scene I would just pray that Hot Shot would trip and bring a 5 ton foot crashing down upon him, in the middle of one of his "We can do it speeches..." Sadly, it never happened. Oh well.

Lol! Kicker did screw up that line with every thing bout him. Besides "Kicker"? What kind of name is that for a freakin human, I mean really people. But Spkye and Sparkplug were strange names to but G1 is so awsome their names can't bring it down.
Scorpomike said,  - 2007-04-10 03:32:25
I think My least favorite Transformers are all the six changers. Six shot wasn't so bad, but I didn't like Quickswitch plus RID Megatron and Galvatron. Yes Galvatron has 10 modes. One thing, it's hard to remember what all of the modes are. On Quickswitch, the puma and jet modes were terrible. RID Megatron/Galvatron, the beast modes were fine, but drop the claw, car and jet. Triple changers are fine, any more than 3 modes I think takes the fun out it. Except for the scrambling gestalts.
Unicrons Herald said,  - 2007-04-10 06:07:57
See, I was going to say Wheelie. Then you reminded me of Kicker.
Jeez I hate Kicker.
Worst toy? Ultra Magnus, not just for being a white Prime but for being of knock-off quality.

As for least fav. character? Wheelie, nuff said! Least fav. toy, again, Wheelie, both for G1. RID, Bruticus, and Skybite. Beast Wars, Injector, and tv that is tough, all were great but I think they could have done more with Depthcharge. Armada, toy all the Minicon! And show again, Minicons! Energon, toy, Fattimus Prime and Alpha Qint.! Show, Snowcat. And finally Cybertron, toy any of those Legion toys and show, again, wished they would have done more with Soundwave and given him the voice we all knew and loved. They dropped the ball on him!
TriPredRavage said,  - 2007-04-10 06:46:15
Tough question, my friend. I think my least favorite figure is Ruination from RID. He's just really bad quality. Him or Titanium Soundwave and his giant crotch. I first heard about it from somebody else and was like "how bad can it be?" The answer? Really bad. What a freakin' let down. Least favorite character? Well I never did like Blaster (XD), but he's not my least favorite. My least favorite has to be Nightscream from Beast Machines. His constant whining, the way he transformed first try even before Rattrap, the way he looked like Micheal Jackson, the fact that he was oridingally going to be a girl and wasn't but still could have been, his constant whining. Come to think of it, his figure was pretty bad, too.
Rhinox said,  - 2007-04-10 06:59:43
Wheelie say Powerglide and Warpath are gay.
Slashwing said,  - 2007-04-10 07:41:44
the most frustrating transformer I've ever known as a toy would be terragator, ok he's got great sculpt but the technical flaws just add to the frustration and BM nirage has a left shoulder that breaks off and cannot be easily repaired.
as characters those kids of armada are annoying as hell, and Blurr from G1 deserves the razzie prize alog with Kicker.
CapnScumbone said,  - 2007-04-10 09:24:42
Worst character...Any Decepticon that was relegated to comic relief. They more or less drain the urgency from the entire franchise. I loathe them all. Let's start with The 3 beastformers from RID. Add Demolishor/Snow cat. Then, every 'con except Megs/Starscream from Cybertron. They all sucked, especially Land Bullet and Ransack. Transformers does NOT need a Team Rocket. If the writers insist on filling the cast with useless idiots, make them useless HUMAN idiots.
Worst toy....Cybertron Scattorshot. Hot Shot (yes, all of them except Cybertron's version) was far worse as a standalone, but Scattorshot dragged down the whole line.
Perceptor said,  - 2007-04-10 09:26:27
spreadin' the hate for Minicons???? Cybertron Soundwave???? I don't think so dawg. I think nearly all mini-cons (except recolors, I could do without) and SW rocked house. I think pretty much all of TF:Cybertron kicked arse, toys and show. Although I will admit that Clocker's voice did grate on my nerves a bit!

I can hear the arguments against Nightscream, but I just didn't share their level of contempt. Would've been much cooler had NS been a female character. Imagine, 2 females in one show, WOW!

TOTALLY agree w/ the Capn above. D's as comic relief = no good. But Scattorshot? A bad toy??? Which one!? I liked them both. I don't see that.

and Lord Megatron, you're right on w/ Armada Sidesipe. Yuck!
JetFire said,  - 2007-04-10 10:00:10
My least favorite toy? I cant say very well since im not a completist and have not collected tfs very long. My least favorite one that I have is classics Optimus from the ultimate battle set. My least favorite one in exsitence? G1 wheelie for his terrible robot mode. My least favorite character? well I dont know. Maybe kicker. He was SO annoying! He always yells, and he hates his dad. I hate him. By the way, Ransack and Crumplezone were some of the funniest and best characters in cybertron. It just wouldn't be as good w/o them oh and blasten blaster many of the first BW toys were not show accurate, and there were even less show accurate toys for BM
lord megatron said,  - 2007-04-10 10:13:34
My most hated figure for transformers was probably armada sideswipe or cybertron runamuck. man! that toy was a waste of money and time!!!
cyberwuss said,  - 2007-04-10 13:11:19
Least favorite figure would be Cybertron Demolisher.
Least favorite character would be Hotshot from any series because he has the whole stereotyped "teen hero" thing going like so many late 80s and early 90s kids shows. I think he should have been a Ninja Turtle :<.
Frowny McBeard said,  - 2007-04-10 14:54:18
My least favorite character(s) would be Wheelie and Danny, especially during Headmasters. Oh, and I recall Sky Lynx pissing me off a great deal as a kid. Then again, I loved Predaking.

Least favorite toy? Geez, Quickstrike (Beast Wars) and Universe Soundwave come to mind.
Side Swipe (Spyke) said,  - 2007-04-10 16:22:42
Worst character? Can't say there's one I notably dislike. Honestly, I thought Wheelie was kinda cool. Seriously, he invented rap! (not that I like rap...)

Worst toy, you say?
Must we delve into...THE PLAYSKOOL GO-BOTS!!??

Anyway, I wanted to note the total genius (I'm being honest)of the Autobot and Decepticon twins!

i absalutle hate g1 star screme he was shch a baby
Mighty>Maximal said,  - 2007-04-10 20:36:02
When ever the subject of wrst toy comes up I ca not ever look further than G2 Bulletbike.

He has no legs just one fuzed one and he barely has any arms - he has less articulation than nearly any Fast food Transformer does.

Other major disapointments would have to the TF movie burger kig kids club toys they are very lacking for the most part.

I was expecting to get something cute and fun like Armada Hotshot or Beast Wars' beetles toy and we get the wrst burger king toys iv'e seen since those horrble BK bionicle Action figures, shame.

Jason said,  - 2007-04-11 03:50:50
Beast Wars Fuzor Injector was definately my least favorite TF toy. I was going to direct you to my review of the toy back in 1998, but it apears it got deleated in one of our site updates. To bad, I seriously tore it a new one. I'm pretty sure I gave it a one only because 0 wasn't an option. Serious waist of $10.
megs said,  - 2007-04-11 15:47:00
Now although i'm a fan of this character, Megatron hands down. His waist is so easy to break it's ridiculous. And he looks nothing like his @#$%&(*'n show counterpart.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2007-04-11 20:47:26
Which Megatron? There are only like 30 of them in all of the Transformers universe, lol.
Byrer prime said,  - 2007-04-12 13:09:57
Worst toy(s). Can you say Sparkabots boys and girls. I knew you could. Any of the second releases from certain gimmicks. Headmasters Hosehead, Horri-Bull, etc. Targetmasters Scoop, etc. Quickswitch mentioned above. Triggerbots and cons are poor, but the Sparkabots and Firecons have to be the worst. No wonder I collected G.I. Joe in '87 and '88.

Characters. No TF's I can think of. Kremzeek is the most annoying character from TF lore. Worse than Kicker, Donny Finkleberg, Raul, and the B.O.T. kids put together.
Knight wing said,  - 2007-04-12 20:36:38
I liked Kremzeek. For one episode anyway. I would've hated him greatly if he had been an ongoing character.
Skyfired said,  - 2007-04-14 01:36:18
Toy-sIDESWIPE (Armada) Somebody burn that thing with a freakin' stake!

Charecter-Whelie say I suck worse than Jar-Jar yay!/Cyb Jetfire for one Scott didn't do the voice and for two he was australian! (no offence to aussie fans)
And stop hate for Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod/Hot Shot/G1 screamer (or any other version!)
JetFire said,  - 2007-04-16 17:19:22
how can you say that skyfired i disagree with everything you say except for that you like rodimus prime/hot rod/hot shot and starscream. But wheelie was cute, armada sideswipe had an awesome car mode, and cybertron jetfire was one of the best characters in the show, partly for his awesome aussie voice. Brian drummond was way better than scott as jetfire though scott was awesome in BW. He was the frank welker of BW!
Scorpomike said,  - 2007-04-16 20:42:46
Quit your arguing girls, everybody has a right to their opinion. I think they could have done better on G1 Rodimus Prime. I like G1 Hot Rod better. G1 Blurr wasn't so bad. But I'll have to agree that Wheelie sucked.
