    Since the toyline will be at retail soon.

    Can the ones who own these cool figures rank from which is the best to worst?

    Of those I have, I rank from best to worst: Prowl, deluxe Cybertron Optimus, Bulkhead, Starscream, Bumblebee.

    Prowl's articulation is very impressive, Optimus is very clean, and Bulkhead has a very felicitous transformation. Starscream is inoffensive, though not better than his Armada version.

    But Bumblebee's color scheme is abrasive and his transformation is uninspired.

    Well for what I've had a chance to own/play with here's my list.

    1. Ratchet - this guy is spot on for the character model, great poseability and all-around awesomeness.

    2. Lockdown - Bad-ass alt mode and great faithfulness to the cartoon. a little more leg articulation would put him over the top.

    3. Prowl - for the same reasons as everyone else.

    4. Cybertron Prime - Simple, but effective transformation. Looks great in bot mode, but I still don't get the hinge in the axe handle.

    5. Voyager Bulkhead - I don't love all of his back Kibble in robot mode, but otherwise very fun and good looking.

    6. Bumblebee - Poor transformation, awkward looking bot mode when compared to other deluxes, but you can't not have a bumblebee.

    7. Voyager Cybertron Megatron - I know that earth mode megs is supposed to kick all sorts of ass, but this version just feels like fail. From the horribly designes fusion cannon attachment to the alt mode that just screams "lets fold up the robot in wierd ways and call it a spaceship". I wish I has spent the money on starscream instead.

    Still waiting on Blackarachnia, Blitzwing, Grimlock, and Lugnut in the mail so the list will likely change.

    Hmmm. Well, out of the Wave 1 and Wave 2 figures I own (this is gonna be TOUGH - ranking them isn't fair as they're all very close):

    1.Ratchet - spot-on to the cartoon. He looks great, and has an awesome transformation. Plus he fits the EMP. Tools are a waste though.
    2.Prowl -awesome transformation. Very inspired, and VERY showaccurate in both modes (and posable!)
    3.Starscream - Slightly loses points on show accuracy (the backpack/guns) but his automorph makes him awesome.
    4.Voy Bulkhead - A fun figure. VERY well implemented automorphing. Downside is mainly that he's short.
    5.Bumblebee - Some people don't like him. But I LOVE him. Awesome figure - I love how he looks. Downside is you need to shave down plastic so the stingers fold in properly (but it's easy to do)
    6.Lockdown - Very cool transformation and look in both modes. Only real complaint is his hands.
    7.Blackarachnia - The weakest - but that's not to say she's crap. Very show-accurate in both modes, and it's tied at the very least in my book with the BM Blackarachnia for best Blackarachnia figure made. (Mind you, I don't have the TMII).

    It would be easier to list the ones I'm NOT impressed with: (they're not BAD toys, just not quite up to a higher standard)

    Voyager cybertron Megatron
    Voyager Starscream
    Lockdown

    Everything else (that I've gotten so far, which ain't that much) is pretty excellent ('specially the little big guy, Voyager Bulkhead)

    my list is short. from best to worst
    Blitzwing. He is full of win in my book. the face gimmick doesnt inhibit anything else and what not and i love all three modes. the jet is the one suffering the most but all triple changers have that

    Blackarachnia is aweseom but i hate that her hands dont hide in spider mode. She is very possable and great for litterally hanging from places with her grapple.
    Lockdown is cool but his hands are very awqward and his legs are like blocks. still glad to have all three though.

    Only have the first wave but Starscream is a must have toy from this line no question. I suspect Grimlock will soon join this category as well from what I've seen of him.
