    Mine would have to be Leader Megatron. An awesome looking alt mode, solid robot mode and I'm a sucker for lights and sounds.

    Close second and third are Voyager Grimlock and Wreck-gar. I just love both characters in the show and I thought both of their toys were pretty darn awesome. Wreck-Gar being a garbage truck just makes too much sense, and his face sculpt resembles Weird Al, How cool is that?

    Grimlock's lock-jaw design really suits the character and I love the mostly silver, red, and gold color scheme on him. Very sharp.

    What's yours and why?

    Gimlock for me.

    If I had them, Swindle and Blurr would probably beat him out, though.

    Blurr is a very nice figure. Great looking alt mode. Rodimus is also a favorite of mine.

    I love Blurr's posability and dynamics. However, Prowl beats it on both those counts.

    Blurr also loses points for having a bonnet that detaches.

    Swindle and Sentinel Prime are favourites but that's probably more to do with the characters than the toy.

    So, probably Prowl.

    But then I do love Blitzwing. At least two fantastic modes, beautiful colour scheme and a unique gimmick. And a bonus shit plane.

    Thinking about how it all tucks away in tank mode, I've got to say Blitzwing.

    Of the ones I've owned or have had in hand I'd say Grimlock and then Blurr and Jazz.

    I find myself playing with Voyager Optimus Prime the most.

    Rodimus and Samurai Prowl are top tier also.

    When I was a kid, used to visit my uncle who used to own a toy store that had gone bust (late 80's / very early 90's). He had a box full of original transformers. Took me a few visits to figure out how to contruct devastator (no instructions) but once I had it.. joy. Would have to say that makes him my favourite.

    My uncle threw that box out once all the nephews grew up, so to speak.

    Not a big fan of animated (bought very little and sold most of it -- and what isn't sold will be sold).

    However, Animated Rodimus I think is an amazing figure. Have the US, Takara and clear version. Not only the best Animated figure to me, but also the best Rodimus figure ever. (If they'd release a leaderclass sized version with solid (ratchet) joints, he would even replace the MP on the shelf.)

    Probably leader-class Bulkhead for me, but there are lots of great toys, and they look good as an ensemble.


    Way to not really grasp what 'bowing out' means. :)

    and now that I have read the subject of this thread correctly I will also bow out as I have no "animated" experience.

    Cybertronian Optimus Prime

    He's posable, solid as a rock and fun to transform.

    Yep. Masterpieces like Prowl, Ultra Magnus, and Grimlock deserve to be thrown away!

    Wonderful line with so many favorites. I'll probably go with Blurr. He'still on my display shelf on one foot in a running pose with Shockwave behind him.

    Rodimus and Cybertron mode Optimus are probably close seconds.

    Botcon Autorooper (Autotrooper, for those of you who want to be techincal) is my favorite, but I have to admit my bias towards the character, as I really enjoy Autorooper :) .

    Blurr and Prowl are both great figures as well, and I really like them. I like my leader Bulkhead, Megatron, and Ultra Magnus quite a bit as well. Lockdown is a favorite of mine as well.

    I'd like to throw out Activators Bumblebee and Cliffjumper as well. I think they're really fun, and they're the better pieces from that subline.

    orionpax i mean pre eart optimus is awsome
    blackarcania is wicked
    blitzwing is awsome
    swindel is just plan freaky
    grimlock is smashing good
    starscream is screaming awsome
    megatron is just epic

    but to be honest the best animated toy would have to be rodimus why you ask he is a sleak small car that transforms into a big robot its an amazing toy

    the other toy that comes to mind as epic was ultramagnus so much to do so many weapons and the hammer

    Blurr is my favorite. He has so much character and is a great toy all around.

    Hard to pick just one;

    Deluxe Prowl had an awesome range of posability. So many hinge and ball joints!

    I always enjoyed deluxe Bumblebee's transformation. It was fun! :D 

    Leader Megatron was cool as well.

    And voyager Shockwave. He was epic! Four modes, and all of them pretty decent looking as well.

    Leader class Megatron is my favorite. Leader class Bulkhead comes in second.
