    Out of all of Prime's magical combining friends, which was your favourite? Toy-wise, I mean.

    Mine's RID Ultra Magnus. I kinda like him better than Omega Prime. He's got long-ass legs but still has plenty of articulation. He's imposing as hell, too, and has a great overal sculpt and design. His vehicle mode is a highlight of the RID line for me. If only there was a way to make him stand...

    RiD Ultra Magnus. He's not perfect, but is still OK and has a great altmode, and the combined mode is just WOW.

    I really enjoyed Japanese G1, so it's a toss-up between God Ginrai and Victory Saber (I more or less consider him an OP equivalent).

    RID Ultra Magnus gets my vote.

    You missed one...Energon Prime's normal upgrade with the 4 drones.

    I think Energon Wing Saber looks the best as an addon, but Armada Jetfire works the best as a standalone figure. None of them succeed at doing both, at least in my opinion

    Regular Super modes don't count. This is for power-ups that are actual Transformers themselves. For example, a power-up you buy seperately. I hesitated to include Apex Bomber but I know how popular Powermaster Op is.

    You may not have bought the re-issue Godbomber separately, but the vintage was sold separately so it counts

    While i do not have RID Prime or Ultra Magnus i voted for Magnus. I think the Omega Prime combination looks awesome in the show and in the toy form.

    You mean stand-alone or combined with Prime?

    For combined version nothing beats Omega Prime. He looks completely awesome and unlike most of the other combined figures he technically has decent articulation, although he's kind of too heavy to actually do much with it.

    If we're talking about the companion figures by themselves, then I'd say that Jetfire is probably the best figure individually. His jet mode is just huge and looks really cool, and his robot mode is pretty good on its own as well. Their combined mode isn't that great though, but I still like it.

    In fact I made a thread about the history of Optimus combined modes a few years ago before RotF even came out, I think.

    rotf jetfire. although i dont like him much as an individual figure in robot mode, the blackbird mode is huge and the amount of permutations that can be done in corpse-backpack mode means hours of fiddling around. i might think twice if i could find all my ultra magnus parts

    Voted for RID Ultramagnus because the toy brought me back to collecting from G1 and some G2. Jetfire is second as I passed on Cybertron and Energon toylines.

    Depends on what's more important to you, but the idea is which do you like most stand-alone. Though I can't stop you from voting for the combined modes.

    Armada Overload. Awesome figure in it's own right, then a big ole armed backpack.

    I voted for Energon Wing Saber with the combined mode in mind - it salvaged a mediocre Prime and makes him look passable, for me.

    My favorite stand alone is Cybertron Wing Saber. Absolutely loaded with weaponry and a nice alt mode.

    I'd say it's a tie between Armada Jetfire and Overload. They may not be too advanced, but they have character.
