Let's see if we can narrow down the very best and the very worst of the G1 Transformers Toys. Rules: 1. Time frame -> 1984-1987. Let's narrow it down to the time frame where G1 was producing new US episodes. 2. No weird variants or obscure releases. Hubcap, the non-TV Insecticons, and Mail Away figures are OK. But that's the line. No prototypes that once showed up in Mexico or McDonalds toys. No Zybots, Gobots, etc. No weird promotional toys like something from a gas station, etc. Jetfire is OK, even though it's a Macross/Robotech toy. My picks.. Best = Soundwave. Both modes work well. He looks like a robot and a cassette player. He has added play value from his tape minions. Worst = Ironhide. At least Ratchet got a cool looking lightbar and you could pretend he was an auto repair drone or something. There were no redeeming features of the Ironhide toy. The robot mode was horrific, and even the van mode was gappy.
