    So I am curious about everyones favorite figures from each movie. you get to have one Decepticon and one Autobot from each movie line. Whats your favorite and why?

    2007 =Auto Jazz. Not a great figure, but I loved that they tried something new with him in how his arms transformed and the head mold was tops.
    Decepticon Bone Crusher just because I really like his whole transformation and the spikes on his back.

    2009 Autobot = Icecream Truck twins. I know they are smaller and lose some detail but darn it what a need toy and gimmick for how they combine.
    Decepticon = Mind Wipe. He is chalk full of awesome and looks totally wicked to boot.

    2011 = Autobot Wheeljack/Que. I fricken love the mold, the head, the detail and the transformation is slick especially for his size class and comparison to the other figures we got from the line. Makes me wish he had more screen time to truly appreciate him more
    Decepticon = Shockwave, I know they could have improved his arms, heck even made him Oh I don't know TRANSFORM in the movie. but The head, the cannon, and the cable are awesome, plus the rib cage really sells him on creep factor. .

    So there is my Two Cents. what about yall?

    TFTM:
    Concept Camaro Bumblebee. He has a lot of sentimental value I was so happy when I finally found him at the store. Landmine is runner up.

    ROTF:
    Leader Optimus Prime. I don't think I really need to explain this one.

    DOTM:
    Leadfoot. Love the armored car mode, and I like all the weapons. Robot mode looks fantastic after I painted it up.

    TFTM: Voyager Blackout is still a favorite of mine. He was in the first batch of figures I bought and I remember at how amazed I was by the engineering.

    ROTF: Leader Optimus Prime. Nuff said.

    DOTM: Deluxe Crankcase comes to mind. A very fun figure that can be army built.

    Autobots:
    2007: Premium Bumblebee.
    2009:Scout Class Knockout. I just like him.
    2011: Deluxe Class Leadfoot. He is honestly my crown jewel. Solid alt mode, with a slightly fiddly robot mode.

    Decepticons:
    2007: Leader Class Brawl. Need I say more?
    2009: Really, I just think all the Decepticons are pure gold in terms of engineering, but Rampage has to take my vote for having a unique robot mode.
    2011:Laserbeak for his excellent articulation and odd bird head.

    Movie 1- Autobots- Uh... I don't actually have any movie 1 Autobots... But I have ROTF Hoist, and he's pretty cool.

    Decepticons- Blackout. Love how they worked Scorponok into him.

    ROTF- Autobots- Battle Blade Bumblebee. Out of all the freakin' Bumblebees this is one of the best, having weapon gimmicks that work pretty well. (If only his flippin' axe wasn't up-side-down...)

    Decepticons- Gah, I can't pick one. Bludgeon, Brakedown and Long haul are all awesome.

    DOTM- Autobots- Sideswipe. He can have wheel-feet or normal feet, swords aren;t rubber or anything, and I don't mind the lack of shiny paint.

    Decepticons- Voyager Megatron. Awesome Mechtech that fits in the vehicle mode, absolutely badass vehicle form overall, fun transformation, awesome tar/cloak- I could go on for awhile about this one.

    Autobots:
    2007: Jazz. He's an innovative mold that nails the CGI model with extra playability due to the rear shield disconnecting.
    2009: Ice Cream Twins. There's a lot of fantastic molds in ROTF, but Skids and Mudflap take the cake for a great gimmick with a lot of personality in both robots and and alt mode.
    2010: HFTD isn't part of this? Screw you.
    2011: Skyhammer. I'll be damned if DOTM didn't have a lot of great alt modes, or robot modes, but Skyhammer is the best of both. He takes a powerful helicopter and turns it into a very realistically proportioned robot mode with great articulation.

    Decepticons:
    2007: I don't have any 2007 movie Decepticons?
    2009: Legends Devastator. I love this little punk, however inaccurate he may be. All the individual components are great figures, too.
    2010: Again, no HFTD? I don't like this question.
    2011: Starscream. He's an incredible mold that captures his robot mode incredibly, with two great weapons to boot, that transforms into about the thinnest jet transformer since HFTD Terradive.

    07: Legends Bonecrusher. Yes, it's insane but it's the only 07 figure I still keep out.
    RotF: Sea Spray (I count HftD as RotF)
    DotM: Space Case.

    I cheated and separated the HFTD line. :cool: 

    TF01:
    * Old Camaro Bee (gold version) - this is one of the first figures I wanted, so it's sentimental.
    * Premium Ironhide

    ROTF:
    * Recon Ironhide - The new headsculpt and all the weapons = love.
    * Mindwipe - One of my favorite movie designs. I wish he was in the movies, he looks so awesome.
    *Leader Prime (amazon exclusive black version) - Even though I'm not a big Prime fan, I love the leader mold and the black deco with the blue swords and gold flames.

    I love the NEST line from ROTF in particular. It was my favorite of the movie lines.

    HFTD:
    *Battle Blade Bee - The best Bee mold, IMO.
    * HA Jazz - Easily one of the best HA molds.
    * Leader Starscream - Not a favorite character OR design in the movies, but this figure was so well done. Really captured the design.

    DOTM:
    *Leader Ironhide - the only figure that excited me in the DOTM line (minus the Cyberverse stuff, 'cause it rocked). But the legs should have been painted.

    Dark of the Moon - Deluxe Topspin and Human Alliance Basic Sandstorm (they're just about tied :wink: )
    and if we include Hunt for the Decepticons - Battle Ops Bumblebee

    TF1

    Wreckage (Would have made a nice Megatron)
    Real Gears (Great subline)
    Incinerator

    ROTF

    Breakdown (Nice G1 homage and proof that Scout cars can be cool)
    Dirt Boss
    Legends Ravage (Normally don't like Legends but he is nice)
    Deluxe Ratchet

    DOTM

    Sentinel Prime

    I would have said ROTF Nightbeat but that head is horribly alien. Pity because the colour scheme really elevated the mold.

    Why am I the only one who has mentioned Jetwing Optimus? How can you guys like leader ROTF Optimus but not if he comes with a jetpack?

    ROTF had majority of the best figures to date. Leader Prime being the obvious one.

    DOTM imo only has the HA figures to show for.

    TFTM I had a hard time buying anything from this line, but Premium Voyage Ironhide, Voyager Blackout, Best buy exclusives Metallic paint Voyager Megatron & Ratchet were all exceptional.

    Because he is essentially the ROTF Leader Prime mould, with some minor tweaks. Nearly Every leader Prime after ROTF have stemmed from him
