Beast Wars Optimus Minor - Could He Be the Worst Beast Wars Toy?

This time I look at the Transformers Beast Wars Optimus Minor. I wish I could find something complementary to say here but this offering was and still is utter trash. The colors should work well together but, instead, we have a gaudy mix of warm and cool colors that looks sloppy. The head sculpt in both modes is terrible. There is an abundance of articulation but, except for the legs, the rest is a hodge-podge of odd joints that move in odd ways with parts that like to bang into one another. WHY DOES HIS FOREARM SPLIT IN TWO? It's bad design choices like that which only serve to ruin this guy. The conversion is messy, unsatisfying and nothing seems to stay particularly locked into place. While most of Beast Wars was terrific, especially for the time, this guy was not. Check out all the details and see how much of a failure he is for yourself!

I have always loved this guy! Weird Yes! Good Yes! Split arms Guns! Mine lost his tail but I kept the rage aspect of his personality because of the tail. The figures got weird as the series went on. So did my imagination, that's part of why I loved him
