    I think that despite the amount of bad stuff that can crop up in IDW books there is some really great stuff too.

    Thundercracker is a character I never gave that much thought to, but what was done with him in AHM and even Costa's run was awesome, I think it took what was originally in his bio and made a fantastic character out of it.

    Out of all the characters across all of IDWs G1 stuff I think Thundercracker might be by far my favorite.

    Who else has IDW turned from nothing into someone you now cherish? Or conversely, who have they ruined/wasted?

    Basically most of MTMTE and RID characters are my current favorite.
    But besides current two series, I'd say Thundercracker and Ironhide.

    Cyclonus has been a highlight for me, as are all that have already been mentioned.

    I did like what was done with Sunstreaker as a whole, hope that he and Bob are made pertinent in some way on board the Lost Light.

    Overlord, Kup, Ironfist, Perceptor.

    Roche and Roberts' Prowl

    Thundercracker

    Ultra Magnus

    Swindle

    Galvatron (surprising because I'm old school G1 but I didn't mind him being a seperate entity to Megatron)

    Overlord

    Rotorstorm

    Swerve


    Characters I don't like in IDW:

    Sunstreaker. Dreamwave and Universe had SS perfect but IDW made him a wuss.

    Jhiaxus

    Cyclonus

    Thunderwing. His honour and Matrix affinity were his best points.

    Scorponok. I miss Marvel's conflicted version.

    There's a couple:
    -Prowl
    -The Wreckers
    -Soundwave (Although I just love Soundwave in general :lol )
    -Shockwave
    I haven't read all the comics though, so when I finally get to read them all I'm sure my list will greatly change!
