    I am curious to know as to which is the most popular Transformer among the fan boys and fandom. I did not make a poll because there isn't enough options. So I'll try to keep a running top 5 of 10 updated here in the first post.

    What is the best Transformer Toy of all time?
    And It doesn't have to be on the list below. That's just who's in the top five at the moment.

    This is what I got so far up to post #90

    1. Masterpiece Optmius Prime - 25 Nominations
    2. Masperpeice Grimlock - 12 Nominations
    3. ROTF Leader Optimus Prime - 10 Nominations
    4. Masterpeice Starscream - 8 Nominations
    5. G1 Fort Max - 6 Nominations
    T-6. Classics/Henkei Optimus Prime - 4 Nominations
    T-6. G1 Soundwave - 4 Nominations
    T-6. G1 Shockwave - 4 Nominations
    T-6. G1 Scorponok - 4 Nominations
    T-6. Cybertron Optimus Prime - 4 Nominations

    I might be off by a vote or two, But it is a very indication so far. Keep Nominating folks!

    G1 soundwave.

    masterpiece molds are a joint *very* close second, but soundwave wins out for being a great toy.

    For me, it's Kissplay Rodimus and Masterpiece Starscream (Hasbro version).

    Not many other TFs even come close.

    there will never be a definitive answer to this as each collector has his own answer to this and while many may agree there may not be a clear majority

    ^ I am aware of this. But I am curious to the fandom as a whole which is their favorite. No harm in asking.

    Just FYI, might want to get that thread title changed. It sounds like you're trying to find factual "best figure ever" based on sales or popularity rather than taking a vote from TFW members.

    In no particular order, and all are G1 since that's what I mainly collect:

    Predaking (don't know if combiners count as one figure)
    Mirage
    Metroplex
    Jetfire
    Scorponok

    why? the thread title is pretty obvious.

    'best TF toy' is entirely subjective so all we can do is take a straw poll... which is kinda what's going on - everybody votes for their favorite, rickflairwoo keeps a tally and we see what the trend on TFW is. he could make a chart and everything if he felt the need. from that you can extrapolate the most popular figures, which would indicate the most popular maker (tak/hasb), generation, etc. it's about as informative as calculating it based on revenue generated by a single toy or any other statistic in isolation. probably more so than the revenue, which is going to be hit by loads of external factors.

    obviously that doesn't work so well if we all list five figures in no particular order ;p

    It was just a suggestion, and from the looks of it I wasn't the only one who thought the title was misleading. I was just trying to offer some help.

    Everytime I see "best x of all time" it reminds me of Kanye West.

    On topic my vote goes to G1 Devastator.

    MP Grimlock. If not, he's the Grimlock to end all Grimlocks anyway.

    From an engineering aspect, I'd say ROTF Leader Prime.

    From an artistic/needed/nostalgic aspect, I'd say MP Prime.
