    wow, minicons for the loss, huh? I foresee that in future posts as well. so, CM, seems you didn't like grimlock that much, going by his spot? oh well.

    here's my ranking of what I have:

    1. mirage
    2. bumblebee
    3. starscream (only because I partially repainted him)
    4. hot rod
    5. jetfire
    6. astrotrain (once I g1-toon him)
    7. prime (voyager)
    8. grimlock
    9. megatron (voyager)
    10. night rescue team
    11. dinobot team
    12. demolition team

    I can only rate what I have so:

    1: Mirage

    And if thats the way I'm doing it Astrotrain will be #2. :) 

    And unless the Megatron gets a Japanese re-paint in his G1 colours, that'll be all I'll be getting for Classics. *edit, not because there arent good figures, but I have other priorities.

    Actually I did buy Optimus Prime and Bumblebee for my nephew for Christmas and had a couple quick moments to TF both and I'd say Prime is a good mold, so he could get #2, I'm hoping Astrotrain will be #3 ahead of BB as I didnt really like BB as much.

    This is just based on what I currently own:

    1. Jetfire
    2. Skywarp
    3. Optimus Prime (Voyager)
    4. Bumblebee
    5. Starscream
    6. Megatron (Voyager)
    7. Ultra Magnus
    8. Astrotrain
    9. Grimlock

    Jetfire, IMHO, is still the deities' gift to TFs. It's a really tough call between BB and OP. It's the first BB we've had in years, but Prime is the most poseable of the molds I have (don't own Mirage), and Prime's not yellow. Megatron, and Astrotrain all needed some paint, so they got downgraded, and Starscream and Magnus still do, but I'm not gonna bother. Might try to paint Skywarp's nacelles silver, but that's not a big deal. He still outsells Screamy in the looks department, particulary in the face. Grimlock is not a bad toy, certainly not Armada-bad, but the inability of his shoulders to lock in and no way to really fix it kills what could have been an awesome toy. I plan on getting Ramjet when I get a job, but can't include him yet.

    I won't be buying any Minicons, Cliffjumper, or Rodimus. Don't like any of them and the Minicons don't even belong in the line, IMO. I'm on the fence about the Devastator repaint. Too many Autobots, but I wasn't crazy about the Energon version, so I'm not sure I'll get this one.

    1. Mirage
    2. Voyager Prime
    3. Voyager Megatron
    4. Grimlock
    5. Bumblebee
    6. Jetfire
    7. Starscream
    8. small Prime
    9. small Megs
    10. Astrotrain

    those are what I currently own. I'm not even sure if I agree with that order. The only ones I'm sure of are the top 2. They rule you.

    edit - I have the wave 1 mini-cons too but I dont think I can rate them on the same scale. For that matter, I dont know if I can rate them against themselves. I'd just end up barely agreeing with my own order, like that other list. I think they're a lot of fun though, I got em decked out on Brave Max

    That I have (obviously!)

    OPTIMUS PRIME (Voyager)
    MIRAGE
    BUMBLEBEE
    SKYWARP
    ASTROTRAIN
    MEGATRON
    ULTRA MAGNUS
    HOT ROD
    (sic)
    JET FIRE
    MEGATRON
    (two-pack tank)
    STARSCREAM
    GRIMLOCK
    OPTIMUS
    (two pack)

    I suspect RAMJET will figure quite highly in that list when I get him, but CLIFFJUMPER will nestle near the bottom (but still hover above GRIMLOCK!)
    And placing SKYWARP so highly while being so disappointed by STARSCREAM? The paint job does make a world of difference in my opinion.

    Don't have the final wave yet, so I'm just guessing about those based on photos/reviews I've see....

    1. Bumblebee
    2. Starscream (I know, others hate him, but I really love him)
    4. Mirage
    5. Prime
    6. Jetfire
    7. Megatron
    8. Ramjet
    9. Skywarp
    10. Magnus
    11. Rodimus
    12. Astrotrain
    13. Clear Skies Team (mostly just because of Steel Wind)
    14. Cliffjumper (would have ranked SOOO much higher with a new head)
    15. Night Rescue Team
    16. 2-pack Megatron
    17. Grimlock
    18. Demolition Team
    19. 2-Pack Prime

    Everything from 1-14 I genuinely like a lot, but have to rank them. Everything from 15-19 I genuinely dislike, but must buy them nonetheless. :)
