    The Ford Gt Mold is pretty much perfect.

    The Ram mold however is a different story: A lackluster mix of contrasting gaps and kibble.

    Best - Mustang, Corvette, Wrangler.
    Worst - Viper.

    I've only got Alts 1- 10 so I can't really comment on the Acura, Scion, Ram and GT.

    I can't speak for everyone, but, for me, the car mode is sweet and the bot mode just looks awkward (hips/legs mostly). That mold isn't my least favorite, but it is somewhere near the bottom.

    My favorite mold is likely the Acura. Least favorite is the S2000. However, I have to give special mentions to the car modes on the Ram and Ford GT.

    I have to say Ford GT and Honda S2000/Meister.

    S2000 is what Tracks should have been. and Meister is what WRX should have been.

    Worst is Dodge Ram.

    best and worst are objective terms and I'm not really qualified to use them

    personal favorites: Ram, Mustang, Corvette

    least favorite: I used to say S2000 just cos it was kind of boring, but I've grown to dislike the Acura. The arms are pretty crappy. They (the arms) dont look good and I hate trying to transform them. I thought Prowl's ankles were weak because I did the leg mod to him, however I left Camshaft's legs alone and his ankles are even looser! One of Prowl's mirrors came off, so I decided to be more gentle with Camshaft. However, after he fell off my desk 3 times, he finally broke one mirror. They have good articulation, but the thighs are too stumpy to make great use of it, and the arms are also kinda stubby. Now, I dont hate them or anything. I like their general shape and details, I like the "blight"stick weapon, but from my point of view, they have the most faults in the series

    because of his limited range in his hip movement, which sets TF back, oh, 20 years?

    I forgot about the acura. Camshaft warms the selves here, and I just can't bring myself to buy him. Maybe it's the dull grey vehicle mode, or the ugly-ass colours in robot mode.

    My favorite mold at the moment would have to be Jazz, Sunstreaker, or Skids.

    My least favorite (and this is completely speculatory at the moment) would have to be the new Jaguar Ravage. It's innovative I'll give it that, but I just don't like Ravage being a car. Rumble doesn't look like such a great mold either. I also think the Acura RSX Prowl is a little lame because of the lack of articulation...hence the reason why I will be purchasing a Red Alert and retooling it into a proper Prowl...Prowl should have been made a WRX to begin with...come on Hastak...usually the simple answer is the best one

    I really had hoped that Hasbro would repaint the Skids mold into Ratchet and Ironhide...it just seems like such a obvious way to make more money...Slap some paint and retool the head a lil' bit and BAM! You got a perfectly good Ratchet and Ironhide...the two they should have made out of the Scion Xb in the first place IMO. I hope this comes to fruition before I decide to take matters into my own hands and repaint Skids into Ironhide.

    Best - Shockblast. The RX-8 mold was already solid, but Shockblast provides a better colour scheme and great homage.

    Worst - Mustang mold. This mold is a complete mess, with an overly finicky transformation, multiple parts that come off during transformation, crappy weapons, weird proportions in robot mode and loose hip joints. Wheeljack's terrible colour scheme makes him slightly worse than Grimlock.

    for me

    Best: Mirage.

    Worst: Optimus/Nemesis Prime. The mold just plain SUCKS. When I 1st got it, I gave it a chance because I thought it was getting a bad rap, however, after owning it for almost a year, it SUCKS.


    I don't think the viper mold QUITE sets the standards back TWENTY years. It's not THAT poorly articulated. I think it's just spoiled fans. It's a great toy! Stop being so dang picky. It's leaps and bounds above the Ram mold that doesn't even snap together anywhere in bot mode. It's a loose mess.
