    I might change my mind on some of these later, but at the moment I think they would be:

    1: Optimus Prime - A/E/C and RiD (but Armada in particular)
    2: Jetfire - A/E/C (Again, particularly Armada)
    3: Hot Shot - A/E/C (particularly Cybertron)
    4: Prowl - RiD
    5: Override - Cybertron
    6: Soundwave - Cybertron
    7: Blurr - Armada
    8: Red Alert A/C
    9: Crosswise - RiD and Cybertron (Hey, he was a Veyron in Cybertron! He had to be on the list... Plus Crosswise was my first RiD figure.)
    10: Wing Saber - E/C

    I've probably missed someone (most likely from RiD).
    Not too sure about the order they're in either, but meh...
    I liked Vector Prime (Cybertron) and Inferno (Energon) too.

    I dare someone to put Energon Ironhide on their list...
    Or Cybertron Thunderblast...

    I don't have much love for the A/E/C trilogy to be honest. But RiD and its original Japanese form, Car Robots (CR), is a dear favourite of mine, so most of my fave characters come from there:

    Black Convoy/Scourge (CR/RiD) - Check out my avatar and sig! I was obssessed with him!
    Fire Convoy/Optimus Prime (CR/RiD) - Cool fire truck mode! And Loved Neil Kaplan's voice for him!
    Gelshark/Sky-Byte (CR/RiD) - Who don't love a sympathisable robot poet?
    Speedbreaker/Sideburn (CR/RiD) - His love for red sports cars was cute and endearing. He was a charmer.
    Wildrider/X-brawn (CR/RiD) - Loved the accent in RiD. Fun bot to swing around with.
    Yuki/Koji (CR/RiD) - I can't tell you all how much more i've come to appreciate him after the roster of annoying kids we received in the whole A/E/C trilogy!
    Optimus Prime (Armada) - Okay, i'll be fair on at least one character from Armada. This Prime gave us a brutal fight in the final ep of Armada!
    Optimus Prime (Cybertron) - Didn't care too much generally for the stiff over-authoritative personalities of the A/E/C Optimuses, but Cybertron Prime did have a very cool and bad-ass design. He was kinda Gundam-ish looking.

    Probably not in order except for my #1 pick:

    1. Starscream (Armada)
    2. Red Alert (Cybertron)
    3. Snow Cat/Cyclonus (Armada, Energon)
    4. Slapper
    5. Demolisher (Armada, Energon)
    6. Shockblast
    7. Megatron (Armada)
    8. Scourge (RiD)
    9. Smokescrean (Armada)
    10. Optimus Prime (Armada, Cybertron)

    Edit: 11. T-ai, from RiD, I always thought she was cute.

    I actually tried to put thought into this, but that resulted in being futile. Oh well.

    That's the truth! :) 

    I didn't really care for the A/E/C trilogy either, but there were a few characters in it that stood out despite their mediocre surroundings. Here's my top 10:

    1. SkyByte/ Gelshark (RiD/ CR) The singing, flying poet shark. Love this guy. Love his rivalry with Black Convoy

    2. Scourge (Cybertron) This guy is an honorable Decepticon. Like, the kind of honor that Dinobot was always talking about. Pretty cruel at times, but still honor-bound. And he doesn't take any lip from Megs. :) 

    3. Scourge/ Black Convoy (RiD/ CR) The guy is just cool. And he's half the reason why Gelshark is who he is. :) 

    4. Starscream (Armada) I like heroic Decepticons. Too bad they completely changed him for Energon and Cybertron.

    5. Override (Cybertron) I like her vehicle mode a lot and her personality to boot.

    6. J4 (Car Robots) Specifically the CR version of the character. I didn't like the voice and english accent they gave J4 for the dub.

    7. Sideways (Armada) I like the voice and the face. I think this guy is my favorite emissary of Unicron ever. Maybe. The Sideways in Cybertron seemed like an entirely different guy, so I don't count him.

    8. Thunderblast (Cybertron) A ditzy, fun-loving crazy girl. Such a break from the girls we typically see in Transformers. Totally a bubble-head, but she was fun and entertaining. :D 

    9. Prowl/ Mach Alert (RiD/ CR) I really liked his personality and you can't go wrong with a lambo police car. :) 

    10. Optimus Prime/ Fire Convoy (RiD/ CR) An okay personality (better than the optimi of the A/E/C trilogy), but I really love his alt mode. It's the single best firetruck I've ever seen in TFs and both his robot and super modes look great.
