    I was remembering watching the 2007 movie, and how the crowd went nuts when Barricade transformed on a dime when giving chase to Bumblebee, and it made me think of other cheer-worth transformations.

    What's your favorite in any universe?

    Prime's 1986 movie "Megatron must be stopped no matter the cost" transformation was pretty freakin sweet.

    I would say Prime's truck-to-robot transformation with the explosion as he started kicking ass was slightly better.

    Definitely Barricade's transformation when he chases after Bumblebee in the 07 Movie.

    G1 Favorites : Jazz, and his leap forward into car mode. Optimus re-used 3/4 View transformation. Hot-Rod's three types in TFTM.
    Animated : Still love Bulkhead's Toy-Accurate transformation scene.
    BavVerse : Love all the Transformations, each one is fantastic. Standouts include : Blackout at the begining, Barricade when he first interrogated Sam and the Arrival scene with all five Autobots Transforming.

    In More than Meets the Eye, Prime gets hit by an explosion and rolls down then hill. When rescued by Wheeljack and Ratchet he transforms painfully and slowly which was pretty awesome.

    I hate to say this but anytime Optimus goes into Super Mode/Savage Claw/Sonic Wing/Jet Mode. For some reason, it hypes me up for an awesome battle that ensues sometimes.

    1987 Movie: Hot rod, just after he fixes Kup when he does the 180 degree arm flip. Just awesome!
    Also, gotta love when Kup races up the hill and transforms to pull up Blitzwings cannon saving Hot Rod. Sheer Win.

    The beginning of the ROTF when Optimus is dropped from the plane and transforms from robot into truck mode when hitting the ground.

    I really like the "More than Meets the Eye" stock transfoms for the Autobots :) 

    I really enjoy many of the transforms in the 86 movie (note: NONE of them being Hot Rod).
    In no particular order:

    Eject, Rewind, Ramhorn, and Steeljaw for the first time! ("No way! Two can play! Sic 'em!)

    G1 Devastator responding to Rumble and Frenzy's defense of Soundwave ("Constructicons, UNITE!")

    Unicron. 'nuff said.

    The RiD transforms are awesome. Period.

    As far as the live movies go, I went nuts when Blackout transformed. That whole air base sequence is how the Decepticons should have been written to fight - total domination and destruction!

    Barricade prior to chasing Bumblebee = awesome. Cue the "Pretty Handsome Awkward" theme for a car chase (we need more of this!)

    Prime upon arrival to battle is great.

    Starscream jumping from plane to plane while transforming is totally awesome.

    Sideways made me love him with his bursting out the window, flipping, and transforming - still one of my all time favorites. He went out like a punk, and this whole scene really sours me with Sideswipe - another discussion for another thread, though :)
