    I'd say probably TAAO, and RiD is up there because it really made Cybertronian politics matter and made Starscream awesome, and I think it's better at long arc stuff than it's sister series. S1 of MTMTE is also fantastic (and I think S2 is underrated, now that I have some distance) and made me love a ton of character.

    So my votes on RiD, but really a close race and my top isn't on the list.

    If you'd listed TAAO, I'd say that. As you didn't: RID/exRID/OP. Maximum Dinobots was more consistent, but way shorter, so it loses some points from that.
    (If I could vote by "season", I'd say MTMTE S1, but I can't vote for it considering the latter half of S2 and Lost Light.)

    MTMTE is definitely the best all around series, but TAAO is a real close second. I love Starscream's political scheming and watching everyone trying to outwit one another. I'm more than a little bit sad that Mairghread Scott ended TAAO. Glad there's and annual on the way to wrap things up, but still sad.

    I picked MTMTE(because I love it) but I also wish I could've chosen TAAO. It was an excellent series.

    Since I couldn't fit everything on one poll for this site, I have made a new poll with every series that I could think of.

    New Poll Link- Poll-maker.com

    You still will only get one vote so I apologize for that.

    Transformers vs. GI Joe. Best TF-related thing IDW has ever published by a country mile.

    More imagination on any single random page than the entire rest of IDW's output combined. Oh and hey, look! The aliens actually seem alien!

    Even with all its flaws mtmte gets an easy win from me. In my head I kind of read lsotw as an extension to mtmte as it was part wrote by Roberts and shared so many plot threads.

    Im surprised to see revolutionaries get so much love. After spending too much money on the hallow feeling revolution I saw it as an easy decision to not bother with an offshoot of that so I might have to consider going back and getting the issues if it's that special.

    I haven't followed idw or transformers that closely lately, is it barber wrote? If it is I might not bother as I've seen quite a lot of good will directed towards him on forums like this which is fair enough as everyone's got their personal tastes but I've only been disappointed repeatedly by his writing.

    It's pretty much Peak Barber, so if you didn't like Revolution or his other writing you won't like Revolutionaries.

    TAAO should have been in the poll. (Edit- ok, I do see the new poll now XD )I'd say that has been my favorite series. Excellent and interesting look into politics and life on Cybertron, great characterization of Starscream. Also a personal favorite because the Combaticons finally got some real personality and story and seeing how Blast Off was already a favorite of mine, how could I not love seeing him finally get some character development? I hate that it ended so soon.
    MTMTE is also an amazing series and would be my second choice. Roberts and Milne made something really special and compelling and developed a bunch of characters I had never cared about before but now consider favorites (like Whirl). Lost Light is good too, though so far I'd place MTMTE a bit higher on my list.
