    We need more top-10 lists. :) 

    This is throughout the entire TF line, from G1 through Beast Wars, A/E/C through movieverse, the ENTIRE line. Masterpiece is included, as well as 3rd party figs.

    What are your top-10 best molds/figures?

    Here's mine (in no particular order)

    - Generations Warpath
    - MP Optimus Prime
    - MP Grimlock
    - RID Scourge
    - ROTF Optimus Prime (leader)
    - G1 Predaking
    - Generations/United Wreck-Gar
    - Cybertron Primus
    - (tie) G1 Omega Supreme/Fortress Maximus


    * - I did not follow Beast Wars AT ALL, so that is omitted from my list

    ROTF LDR Prime and any remolds or redecoes that came later
    DOTM DLX Bumblebee - It's a smaller more scale accurate version of Battle Blades Bumblebee
    HFDT HA Jazz - I don't even like HA and I think that it's good
    Galaxy Force/Cybertron Optimus Prime - It ain't no brick
    HFDT DLX Ironhide - All that you have to do is ignore his height
    All of those Masterpiece Optimus Primes
    Beast wars toys because they were the begining of ball joihgts in Transformers
    Masterpiece Megatron
    Cybertron Primus
    DOTM DLX Sideswipe - Just forget about the paint apps and focus on the mold

    I started when BW came out so:
    BW(BWII, BW Neo): They were all awesome in their own special way. Some not so much, but most were good figures. I REALLY like BWII Galvatron.
    BM: Ultra Jetstorm! Skydive is really cool, too. They were designed to be simple and alien looking, and they pulled the look well.
    RiD: I didn't have many. Those I had were G2 laser bike repaints or Beast Wars era repaints. However, the Omega Prime was an awesome looking mold, as was Megatron and Galvatron.
    Armada: Thrust, and most of the Minicons. I love Minicons. Unicron was also perfect.
    Energon: All of the Decepticons were amazing. The Autobots...not so much.
    Cybertron: Primus and Sideways are my favorite Transformer figures ever.
    Animated: I don't have any.
    TFP: I don't like the style.
    TF1: Ironhide was hella nice. As was Concept BB. Leader Brawl was the best figure of the series IMHO. Landmine was also very VERY well done.
    ROTF: Some are better than others. I have mixed feelings due to overly complicated transformations, wobbly robot modes, etc. I guess the Axe Bumblebee is the best Deluxe BB so far, and HA Jazz (Under HFTD). Mindwipe is also really nice.
    DOTM: I have plenty of mixed feelings regarding the execution of some of these molds. I don't have any favorites.
    Classics: I own few, and I'm impressed.
    PCC: Undertow and his minicon! Grimstone and the dinos! Though I could be biased.

    I can't come up with top 10's...I basically don't have any. But my favorites are:

    10. Battle Axe Bumblebee
    9. BWII Galvatron
    8. BM Ultra Jetstorm
    7. Primus/Cybertron
    6. HFTD Voyager Optimus Prime. The mold is hella complex, though, and you gotta TF it properly.
    5. HA Jazz. Everything I wanted.
    4. BW Fuzors Airhammer. Sentimental reasons...
    3. Cybertron Crosswise/Smokescreen. The neck always sort of bothered me, but you're priceless when you turn into a Bugatti Veyron.
    2. TF1 Landmine. It's perfect. I glued in the spoilers so they won't fall out so easily.
    1. HFTD Leader Starscream. Sometimes I regret the fact that I'm now finding these at half the original price, but it was worth it all the way. This mold is PERFECT. It not only flawlessly represents the character, but it has a well done vehicle mode, a straightforward transformation, lots of hidden awesome features, and MORE. I plan to buy that upgrade kit just for my leader Starscream. Sure the colors look better on the Masterpiece version, but...I never found one and I found this one first.
    Honorable mentions and tied in with 2: Leader Brawl. Excellent figure. Legs could have done a bit better, and maybe it should have looked more like the CGI, but as a figure itself is one of the better ones compared to the others in the TF1 line.


    I apologize for my lengthy analysis.

    I wished I could really narrow it down to ten. Sadly, I cannot.
