    Favourite Character: G1 Starscream. He's such a delicious character, so scheming and manipulative and so shockingly bad at it all the time! Then we have his ability to survive death at every juncture... An undying, evil, Machiavellian Transformers. What more could people want?

    Favourite Design: The most visually interesting robot that I can think of is Unicron.

    Character: Insanely tough call but I'd say Beast Wars Megatron. Just really cool to show that evil is not always about brute force but words can be a deadly weapon as well. I also just really loved the iron fist in a velvet glove dyconomy to his personality. Ah sort of the Transformers version of The Devil, yes.

    Design: I'd say G1 Soundwave. Ninjas were really big back then so with his colors and face plate he had that sort of ninja thing going on. Plus the insanely cool idea that he carried around smaller robots to do his dirty work for him.

    Character- BW Dinobot, Marvel's early Shockwave or WWI Grimlock.
    Dinobot: I've never been closer to crying from a cartoon as with "Code of Hero".
    Shockwave: The "Are All Dead" timeframe was incredible.
    Grimlock: Yes, he was a true bad-ass.

    Design- RID Galvatron, Predaking or Dark Scorpinok.
    Galvatron: Love the whole aesthetic of the dragon form.
    Predaking: The only combiner to not look like a frame with junk stuck to it.
    DScorpinok: Total steampunk beef, there.

    Favorite character: G1 Optimus Prime, G1 Starscream and Movie Optimus Prime. I will always hold a special place in my heart for the little whiny bitch that is the original Starscream. Peter Cullen's voice helps provide the essence for a charismatic and well-respected leader.
    Favorite design: G1 Soundwave. Cool robot mode, amusing alt. mode, and I love the voice.

    mine for character and design is G1 Wheeljack.
    reminds me of myself at times.(thinks back to putting a gripz wrapper in microwave, creating a lego lazerbeak,accidentally setting fire to a friend of my parent's curtains,etc.)

    Character- All of these are Animated characters. Grimlock, Waspinator, Shockwave, Ratchet, or Dirt Boss. (Purely because of he calls Scrap and Mix mooks. lulz)

    Design-Animated Waspinator or Kickback.

    Design - That new blurr art that showed up. I think it's IDW or something, someone tell me. Cbf'd to find it. Spotlight arcee was also good.

    Character - Spychangers or Rail Racer. Sentimental bias, i suppose.

    Character: BW Rattrap, Dinobot and Megatron...unique each inteir personality and show TFs can be deeper than they usually were

    Design: Animated does well updating the original look with today's quirks. The city/base-formers as well, somehow the idea of a whole city changing is just something in my opinion
