Do you mean bad as in evil? If that's the case, everyone thinks they're bad because that's the story that TLC fed us.

I like 'em, but I do use them as my "Bad" guys. TLC sorta intended 'em to be that, but they're fine.

I switched out the heads on most of my Bull figs, I didn't like the spooky grey eyes. I left a few leaders with the grey eyes and added a few other eveil faces to them as well. The regular soldiers have generic bearded, stubble and other castle faces. I figured for an army to be the "bad" guys, truly only the generals and knights needed to be bad. Infantry and Archers tended to be vassels who had little choice in what army they were in.

I don't dislike them at all, they have nice siege weapons, and when they all have horns they look very cool in formation.
They form the heart of my dark army, because they are the highest in numbers (around fourty)
*And the bulls arrive in kk2*
Cedric the bull: "Hahaha Leo we're here to- wtf?"
*and the bulls see some happy knights bouncing at each other with carts*
Cedric (shocked): "I guess we got the wrong KK''
Bull soldier (frightened): "Lets go back"

"The Story of the Bulls"

Bob the Bull knight was like "sup kk1 knights" and the kk1 knights were like "This our cool people only club. You're not cool enough for us" and Bob the Bull knight was like "Oh yeah?" and the kk1 knights were like "Yeah!" and Bob the Bull knight was like "Man, you are all going down!" and the kk1 knights were like "Whatever"

So Bob the Bull knight gathered his Bull warriors, and they were like "Lets build some siege equipment" and they like did. Then they went to the kk1 castle, and King leo was like you all suck" and the bull knights were like " give us all your gold or we'll kill you all" and king leo was like "Be quiet I'm golfing" and the Bull knights were like "Whatever" and they destroyed the castle and the kk1 knights with their siege equipment.

Since this is a rather pointless stor making fun of how most people seem to talk, you don't need to read it :wink:

You might want to match your poll to the subject - it leads to confusion as to what you are actually trying to get at. The subject and text are about the bulls being bad. The poll is about "dislike".

To cover all bases:
1. I do not dislike the Bulls other than their faces.
2. Are they bad/evil? I think of them as ruthless, though I believe Lego intended them as the "bad guys".
3. Are they bad/awful design/ugly? Just the faces. I rather like some of the torsos.
4. Are they baaaaaaaad/cool? No.

You asked about "dislike".

The answer is no, they were some of the best Castle dudes I had.

But yes, I used them as baddies, and their elements are still used for the baddies in my MOCs.

(Although I do like Brian's portrayal of the noble Bulls in Roleplay.)

Not really... I use their bodies for a new "Good" faction while they're heads is transferred to be the heads for the Evil faction.

Now I don't know who Lord Barbod is, but I do like the Bulls, They are my third largest faction and Currently live in my only intact castle. Most of my world is rubble. My gallery has a folder with my Bull army and castle.
