    Favorite: Mirage, with Prime in a close second

    Least Fav: out of the ones I currently own, it's Starscream. I dont dislike him, in fact I think he's a great looking figure, he's just not as fun as the others. However, I like him better than Rodimus, who I havent even bothered to buy yet

    still need to get Grimlock and Jetfire, but I dont think they'll beat Mirage

    Favorite(s)- Mirage and gun Megatron

    Least favorite(s)- Astrotrain and maybe Grimlock. If I would break down and read the instructions, maybe I'd like Grimlock more. Stupid shoulders...

    Favorite--Grimlock, Rodimus is running a close second.

    Least Favorite--Mirage

    I think mirage is cool as a racecar but in robot mode he's just too skinny. Also, his face reminds me of the alien from "Species"

    Ebay:
    Favorite: Mirage and Bumblebee. Both Excelent and something very special

    Least: Op and Hot Rod: lots of both before and these either give us nothing new or stary too far from their G1 concepts.

    Starscream may have been done to death before but here at least we've got an accurate(ish) jet and it adds decent articulation to the original form.

    Er. I'll have to take a raincheck for final count. I don't have them all yet.

    Anyway, with what I have, Optimus with Bumblebee a close second for favs.

    Decepticons, I really like Starscream. Anyway, I don't dislike anything I've seen yet in the Classics.

    Not having got wave 2 yet in Canada, my decending order from best to worst is:

    Optimus Prime - Megatron - Starscream - Astrotrain - Bumblebee - Rodimus

    I thought I was gonna hate the megatron, but didn't. I also don't see why so many people dislike astrotrain.

    Prime still kicks Megatron's butt though...

    I've got all the classics as of last week.

    Favorite is hard to pick, as so many are so good.

    Jetfire is a terrific homage to his two G1 counterparts, and I'd have to rate him the best of the Voyagers, even though Prime and Megatron kick plenty of booty too.

    Of the deluxe figures, it's a toss up between Bumblebee and Mirage, both of them the best incarnations for either charcter. I may lean a little more towards mirage for the unique transformation and dynamic design aesthetic.

    Worst has to be Astrotrain. He could have been so much better were he done in Voyager scale, but as is he has enough small flaws to keep him down at the bottom. Just ahead of him would be Grimlock, who is saved by a terrific beast mode, but undone by bad shoulder joints.

    Starscream and Rodimus fall squarely in the middle. Rodimus doesn't offer anything new or better over Excellion, and Starscream is pretty much as expected. Nothing new or exciting on either, but no fatal flaws to speak of.

    Best: Prime, Megs, Bumbles (i'm sure Jetfire will be here when i get him)

    Middle of the pack: Astrotrain, Grimlock, Mirage

    Worst: Starscream by far. i cannot believe the love he gets between his boxiness, inability to point his guns anywhere, KO looking silver plastic, dull deco and awkward proportions... Hot Rod-imus is my second-least-favorite, but ironically, is my favorite to Transform.

    All the classics are really great though, Starscream i just rate as average (C) compared to the all the B's and A's of the rest :)
