    Maybe similar topics have come along before, but I dont see any recent ones so....

    A series where you feel that any given character was portrayed/characterized well. Mine would be:

    Soundwave- G1

    Scattorshot- TF Cybertron

    Prowl- Animated

    Sideswipe & Ironhide- movieverse (we just didnt see enough of them)

    Grimlock (G1) - more the first and second season, not surprisingly.

    Too many to count from BW really, but I especially like Blackarachnia and Silverbolt, for being a somewhat offbeat couple.

    Lots of good ones in Animated too, But I gotta go with Bulkhead, if only because he reminds me a lot of me.

    Favorite human: Capt. Fanzone :)

    Definitely Starscream from G1, and reborn in TFA.

    I love that he finally kills Megatron (kind of) in the very first episode of TFA.

    Actually, kinda like Rumble in G1. Smaller than all the big 'cons around him but not afraid of telling them what he thinks.

    And Sentinel Prime in TFA. All day, every day. Love the idea of making a good guy thoroughly unpleasant. Wish it had been Rodimus, though.

    Definitely Ultra Magnus from the Marvel UK comic saga (comic series are allowed, right?)

    I love the fact that despite Galvatron constantly pounding on him, he still goes back for more; I love his interest in humanity, and I love the kind of sacrifices he was forced to make for the cause. Never has there been a better characterisation of what an Autobot should be!

    And who didn't cheer at the final splash page of #85?

    I 'll just doethe big four

    Optimus: G1 in both personality and performance.
    Ditto for Bumblebee.

    Megatron: IDW G1 Megatron. Performance wise, I have to say Corey Burton

    Starscream: Defeintely Cybertron Screamer. Performance wise, I say Chris Latta.

    Everyone from Beast Wars.

    Everyone from Animated. (I know it slightly contradicts. Call it a tie on those specifics)


    Though BW Megatron is the best Megatron ever.
