    For those G1 collectors, just curious which of the 3 Omnibots do you favor? My personal fav is Downshift..I just think his robot mode is the best of them overall. Others?

    Downshift as well- it's a shame he was never repainted.

    The mold is as impressive as any other in G1, but there was only one color produced.

    1 Downshift
    2 Overdrive
    3 Camshaft

    In that order, with the proviso that Downshift is far ahead of the other two, OD's alright, but I've never liked CS.

    I have all but Downshift, but I like Camshaft the best. When I got Overdrive in the mail, I thought it had a cheaper feel than the Camshaft.

    Well, I think Overdrive was the tallest of the three (mine is about as tall as Blitzwing in robot mode). But yeah, they were kind of short bots.

    My favorite is Overdrive, simply for his "attack" mode, which I thought was the coolest of the three. He was also the only mail-away I actually got in the mail, even though I tried to get the other two, along with the Powerdashers and S.T.A.R.S. when I was younger (friends donated the Robot Points).

    Overdrive for sure. Though mine is loose and floppy I still like the transformation and overall look better than Camshaft and Downshift.
