I never saw the show, but I really enjoyed the toys. Divebomb and Cruellock are some of my all time favorites. It was due to that Divebomb, that I later got the G1 version, the Kreo, and even the ROTF biplane Divebomb. I'm even getting the 3rd party MMC Talon (Divebomb) figure.
Strongarm was my first figure of the series. The G1 themed Energon Starscream was actually the first Starscream I ever had. To date, I have about 35 figures from the US line and the Takara Super Link Laserwave.
Now, I'm a bit shocked to had seen Energon as your favorite generation. Is that mainly for the figures of the time, the general era, or were just one of those that liked something about the show itself?
