    Armada:
    Favorite- Unicron
    Least favorite- Tie between Hot Shot and Sideways...worst TFs ever IMO

    Energon:
    Favorite- Hard to choose between Inferno, Rodimus, Landmine, Sharkticon, Shockblast, and Mirage
    Least Favorite- Wing Saber

    Cybertron:
    Favorite- Even harder to choose between Optimus Prime, Galvatron/ Megatron, Downshift, CD Scattorshot, Landmine, Armorhide, Ransack/ Ransack GTS, Evac, Vector Prime, Mudflap, Starscream and Primus
    Least favorite- Backstop...but closesly followed by Scattorshot and Overhaul/ Brushguard

    Edit: Went by toys since I didn't watch the shows

    For all of its faults, I love Armada, and I my favourite character is Starscream because he's such a tortured cliche of an antihero. Coming a close second is Megatron, who has some of David Kaye's best acting since BW, in my opinion (when he gets an Armada episode with good dialogue, that is).

    Armada
    Favorite: Starscream. Awesome character with a truly great arc.
    Least favorite: Sideswipe. Annoying, pointless dork.

    Energon
    Favorite: Tow-line. Great toy and a character not hampered by being on the cartoon.
    Least favorite: Everyone on the show, but especially Ironhide. The Energon series was a horrible mess; I can't think of a single truly great character on the show that didn't get screwed over due to the hack job they did on the dub.

    Cybertron
    Favorite: Chromia/Thunderblast. I loved her every second she was on screen.
    Least favorite: Very hard to pick one, most of the characters on the show were really great. I'll probably go with Undermine and Brimstone, but that's kind of cheating since they were never really developed.

    We talking toys or personalities here?

    Oh well, since the thread says "characters"...

    Armada - Best: Starscream - Worst: I dunno, lets say... Sideswipe

    Energon - Best: Demolishor (pre Dump Truck) - Worst: Starscream (mostly for having none of the old Starscream left)

    Cybertron - Best: Thunderblast - Worst: Brimstone, or any planet-based bit-player.

    Micron Legend
    Loved--Starscream/Megatron; Unicron (toy)
    Hated--Everyone else; Super Convoy (toy)

    SUPER-LINK
    Loved--Rodimus Convoy; TRU Galvatron (toy)
    Hated--Everyone else; Roadbuster (toy)

    GALAXY FORCE
    Loved--Nitro Convoy; Primus (toy)
    Hated--Nobody imparticular

    I probably would have bought every toy in the GF line if I had had enough money. It's good to see the Micron Trilogy wasn't a total waste. We did get a good show in the end and the arrival of BOTH Unicron and Primus as toys. So, mustn't complain.

    I'll go with the figures. I watch the shows, but don't judge the figure by it.

    Armada: Fav-Unicron Worst-Laserbeak*
    Energon: Fav-Omega Supreme Least-Tie between Grimlock & Swoop**
    Cybertron: Like all of Galaxy Force, and even the Cybertron recolors. No real dislikes.

    *Best thing about Armada Laserbeak: he makes a funny head for a F/G/B Maximus bot.

    **They look even worse combined.

    btw. It is not a trilogy. It was never ment to be, and it never will be. Galaxy force/cybertron isnt a part of it. But here are mine...

    Armada
    Fave - 'bendy prime' toy
    worst has to be hotshot. the toy is horrid.

    Energon
    fave - constructacon maximus AND bruticus. I like em both equal.
    worst - rodimus.... the toy is kinda weak. looks out of proportion, legs are rubish. as a top half his arms suck.

    cybertron
    fave - supreme star scream. I just love it.. and i have not got primus
    worst - cannot think of any tbh. But looking at the tiny ones, they looks a bit iffy. Worst one I have is soundwave. why? well mine has a SLIGHT defect.

    imma go with toys, because i myself dont judge my tformers by the 30 minute long commercial that the shows are, that i do watch and find entertaining

    Armada...cant really judge thisone to much.... dont have many of the toys, and didnt see but one or 2 eps....but i love my unicron, bendy prime and tidal wave

    Energon....favorite... i like my divebomb, hmmm and prime combined with wing saber...and ducks flame thrower, but my jet fire ironhide combo, gives me jollies
    hated omega supreme, prime alone and pretty much everything else about this erra

    cybertron... favorites....hmmmm i get fanboy wood for pretty much this whole series...
    dislikes...override... Wreckloose, that i disliked so much i gave away,and the unicron head packaged with primus ...and ducks more flaming, i am disapointed in primuses size... i wish he was as big as unicron in scale at least

    The North American release of Cybertron was meant to be part of it the Unicron Trilogy, if not for anything but to bridge the gap between series.

    GF wasn't, but there are some indications that they were somewhat connected.

    from what i hear on these here interwebs, is that GF was never intended to be, it was hasbro and america that turned it into the whole trilogy thing, wich is the reason for all the plot holes and such..... such as the transformers being shocked when prime and leo breaker combined, "because they had never seen transformers do that"

    You guys are incorrect on the Trilogy.
    Takara themselves call it the Micron Trilogy.

    The three shows were developed one right after another, always having been a trilogy. The course taken in the Japanese market was due to a switch in production companies. Galaxy Force is the third part to the Micron Legend trilogy with an ambiguous plotline. The elements that connect it to the other two shows were left out of the actual script process to give the show a refreshing feel instead of overusing the "Unicron" thing after the previous two did. If you observe the material that Gonzo have released prior and after the airing of Galaxy Force, you'll understand how the series do connect together. The fact that you probably refuse to do this or simply have not at this point in time does not give you the right to tout your opinion as fact and try to mislead other board members. It is a trilogy, it has always been a trilogy, and it will always be a trilogy. The Club Comic in the US is attributing a shift in the timestream as the cause of continuity errors, and no, that is not a mistake or a band-aid. Hasbro wanted the universe to alternate to create a fresh atmosphere, while still remaining the same to those who would recognize it.

    The Black Hole is the energon sun colapsed and the "errors" that you identify are the results of time shifting due to the strain of the black hole. Like that or not, its canon and it's not really up to a fan to decide because a fan does not and never will own the property.

    If you guys can act like civilized people(no OMG DAT SUKKS NOT GEEWUN LOL), I'll glady explain the story situation to you based on ACTUAL facts, not things i've made up but things i have gathered from different sources.

    As for the topic itself. I mainly own import toys.

    Micron/Armada
    Fav-ML Jetfire
    Least Fav-Thrust

    Super-Link/Energon
    Fav-SL Rodimus Convoy
    Least Fav-SL Cliffjumper(minicon combiner)

    Galax Force/Cyb:
    Fav-Cyb Demolishor(Armada repaint)
    Least Fav-Cyb Brush Guard
