    Howdy all!
    I was talking with Delta7890 this afternoon and we were talking about toys from Armada, specifically which ones don't suck, and came up with Bendy Prime and Hot Shot (Hot Shot's just from pics, neither of us actually have him). So I was wondering what people thought were the best figures of each generation.We were speaking in terms of articulation and accuracy, but feel free to toss in anything you think it cool. My experience is somewhat limited since I collect mostly Leader figs, but the following is on my list:

    G1: Ultra Magnus, he has armor! Victory Saber...I love the gimmick and the accuracy.
    G2: Laser Convoy- ...he's got a sword, and he's got fantastic articulation.
    BW: I've only got Primals.
    BM: ^Same
    RiD/CR: Optimus Prime/Fire Convoy
    A/ML: Bendy Prime
    E/SL: I'ma big fan of Rodimus here.
    C/GF: Optimus Prime/Galaxy Convoy. He's probably my favorite TF toy period. Excellion/Hot Shot and CD Red Alert/Botcon Megs are phat too.
    MP: Screamer.
    Alt/BT: GT mold (Rodimus/Mirage). Prowl is a close second.
    Classics: Jetfire, hands down.
    Animated (just going off what we've seen): Magnus rocks my socks.
    Universe 2.0: From what we've seen, I'm pretty excited about A. Hot Shot and Hound.

    Whatchu guys think?

    Ooh, this is hard.

    G1: Sixshot - How can you go wrong with six AWESOME modes?
    G2: Laser Convoy - Agreed. Awesome, awesome mold that still stands up today.
    BW: So many great toys in this line, but I haven't had any recent experiences with them I'm afraid. No vote.
    BM: Never had any BM figures.
    RiD/CR: Optimus Prime - by far.
    A/ML: Supercon Prime - Nuff said.
    E/SL: Out of the few I have, Quickstrike is awesomely amazing. I'd love the combiners though.
    C/GF: Optimus Prime Leader-class - Baddest of the bad, biggest of the big (well, kinda). You don't get much more awesome than this guy.
    MP: Don't own any MPs, but i can't imagine any topping Prime.
    Alt/BT: Mirage - Amazing in both modes, and beautiful to behold.
    Classics: Jetfire - No contest. Classics Jetfire is probably my favorite Transformer ever.
    Animated: Don't have him juuuuuuust yet, but the Blitzwing I've got inbound is sure to be amazing.

    G1 - Shockwave, Soundwave with his tapes, Optimus Prime, Fort Max
    G2 - Dreadwing/Smokejumper and Laser Prime
    BW - Depth Charge is great. Primal is too. Then we got Jap figures like Galvatron and Big Convoy
    BM - TANKOR
    RiD - Rail Racer
    Armada - Unicron. But for smaller figures, I like Demolishor and Thrust
    Energon - Dreadwing
    Cybertron - lots of great figs in Cybertron, but I dont own most of them (such as Prime) so I cant judge. Scourge and Noisemaze are some standouts that I have, though
    Classics - Prime and Mirage
    Movie - just like with Cybertron, I dont own as many as I'd like. Almost all of the ones I do have are equally good, so it's hard to judge. (Cliffjumper, Voyager Prime, Dropkick, and Bonecrusher are all cool)
    MP/Alt - all of them are fantastic, no point in judging them
    Animated - I'm not planning to buy Animated, but Prowl, Magnus, and deluxe Prime look fun/cool
    Titaniums - I only own 3. The Fallen looks great, but I dont have him
    Universe - obviously I dont have these yet, but I expect Onslaught to be my favorite

    G1 - Sideswipe; Second place: Jazz, Prowl.
    G2 - Laser Optimus, Dreadwing, Megatron
    BW - Optimus Primal (the first one) lots of weapons, great articulation, looks badass; Second place: TM2 Megatron

    RiD - Prowl and Car Brothers. The best deluxes ever ; Second place: Scourge, Optimus Prime
    A - Probably Thrust or Cyclonus
    E - I have no idea
    C - Cybertron Defense Hot Shot; Second place: Hot shot. Definately the best ones.
    MP - Starscream; Second place: Megatron
    Alt - Mirage - The best executed bot mode; Second place: Jazz
    Classics - Mirage you gotta love the mold; Second place: Jetfire, I keep mine MISB so I don't have a full opinion of it, but sure looks cool.
    Movie - CC Bumblebee & Voyager Prime, I love the Proform Prime mold too. My favorite line.
    Animated - So far it would be Starscream and Cybertron mode Optimus.

    Eh, I'll bite. I'm in the mood for posting today (4 day weekend!):

    G1 - wasn't alive at the time
    G2 - see above
    BW - Tripredacus...then he broke :cry 
    BM - don't own any
    RiD - Prowl...then he also broke :cry 
    Armada: don't own any (cybertron minicons don't count)
    Energon: Landmine
    Cybertron: Crosswise. Runner-up is Evac...and now HE'S broken, but shall soon be fixed!
    Alternators: Skids (he's the only one out of the 3 I have with above-knee swivels!)
    Classics: Prime/Astrotrain
    Movie: Ironhide

    And I'm out. I have a feeling that my fave Animated toy will be...all that I get. Univers 2.0 will likely be Prowl or NotOctane (get the hint I like triple-changers?). Crossovers...either Hulk or Spidey.
