    What's one obsure TF that you always play with when you see it but you never hear anyone talk about? For me one of those is Energon Landmine. Every time I open a tub with him in it, I can't help myself.

    Here he is ready to take on the Aliens, Ripley style.

    I like assembling him to his supermode and I love the TF sound he makes.

    I love the Machine Wars/ Beast Wars basics. They are among my favorites. I read where people don't care for them much. I think they are awesome. The quick change and small size appeal to me. I think I am alone in liking those.

    Lol. I'd say you were right if I didn't know a guy that's nuts for BM figs. He even like deluxe Primal. :crazy:

    I've always had a soft spot for my G2 Manta. He was one of the only non-G1 Generation 2 guys that I bought. I always have tons of fun with his action feature (though I lost a rotor to it, good thing he came with a spare) and his color scheme seemed neat to me. That and he's a speedboat. Not many Transformers running around as one of those.

    Even though it's a recnet figure, TF Real Gear SnapShot (The Camera). He's just such a good figure. His posability is exceptional and he has a ton of personality.

    Armada Hoist. Easily the line's best mold and one of my all-time favorites.

    Action master Mainframe. I love his design and he has a generic look that makes me want to troopbuild.

    I love BWNeo Bazooka. Love the little Ankylosaurus. Complex little transformation, but looks very cool.

    Submarauder. He may not have the greatest of alt modes but I like the Decepticon pretenders.
    Or Robot Masters Wingstun, the original Acid Storm :D

    I always really liked Pretenders Waverider. I spent many hours playing with that little guy.

    I've always liked Action Master Krok. I've always felt like he replaced Soundwave in the days of Bludgeon. Much playvalue!

    i love both of these guys. Energon Landmine was one of the best molds from that line.

    for me, it might be Cybertron Landmine, another under-rated figure IMO. i love that guy. they should redo him as Scoop??? (the double Targetmaster) with new guns...

    Not sure about this one. He's at least as known and popular as somebody like Sixshot. He's the only G1 double agent right?
