    Which toyline for the movies had the best packaging?

    TF2007: Basically the allSpark in the background, red faction symbol

    ROTF: A recolor of the teaser poster, with egyptian symbols in the background

    HFTD: Yellow, with a render of the character

    DOTM: Space background, with the moon and earth.


    I really like the ROTF packaging best

    Agreed, it was pretty stylish.

    DOTM for me. Looks clean. Although I really like the packaging for the leaders and voyagers from the first movie

    Revenge of the Fallen by far.

    Dark of the Moon is the first TF packaging for years that I actually can't wait to get the toy out of and throw it away. It's soooooo dull!

    HFTD. I've found everything else rather drab. Esp DOTM.

    I'd have to say HFTD, especially the voyagers

    I think the HFTD/RTS packaging takes it for me. That yellow-gold and black looks really classy. Though the ROTF packaging is nice looking. I actually didn't like it when I first saw it, I thought the jagged edges made it look... I don't know, cheap? Like it was trying too hard? But I think the coloration outweighed the jagged edges in the end.

    Every of them in unique way.
    Except for DOTM, which takes second place.

    Not Movie.

    I'd say DOTM is my best, but to be honest, I don't really like any of them. I hope the "Movie Trilogy" packaging spices things up a bit.

    Revenge of the Fallen. Had some awesome colours, and the use of CGI head models on the box art was awesome!

    Ditto. It lacks identity. What with the prominent star-field motif and white graphics, it winds up looking like Star Wars packaging.

    A blip against Hasbro's graphic artists' otherwise stellar work. Their packaging is always so much more eyecatching and appealing on the shelves, compared to anything else out there.

    I'd have to say RotF or HftD, just because they're easier to make fit in my closet since they're pretty square-shaped.

    I kind of liked the first movie packaging. Probably because it just felt so different compared to anything we'd gotten before it. Plus, it was unique in that the inner packaging could be changed while still keeping the individual look (I.E. the strip just above the bubble changing from "Automorph technology" to the infamous allspark blue "AllSpark Power") and Voyager class and up had the neat curve instead of a corner, allowing the figure inside to really be showcased off.

    ROTF takes first place in Deluxe class packaging, if only because I thought it was neat how the actual shape of the package depended on the faction, which dictated what symbol would be "cut out" at the top.

    DOTM...is just uninspired in my book. Except Cyberverse packaging, I like that style, but everything else doesn't cut it in my book.

    The Movie 1 packaging (for all size classes) was the best in my opinion. It looked pleasing and much less intimidating compared to the DOTM packaging.

    The ROTF packaging looked good only with voyagers and supreme class Devastator but that's it really.

    HFTD packaging is the type I don't care for at all.

    DOTM packaging looks intimidating as I said and like someone mentioned in the first page, it's the type of packaging that makes you really want to throw the box away and get to the figure contained.

    I didn't like the ROTF packaging very much. HFTD was a neat change.

    DOTM isn't half bad though, I rather like it.
