It's a fairly long list.

    Autovolt, nice take on an old 'top molds' concept; I like the choice of categories.

    I don't have an incredibly extensive collection...so I'll limit this to 'bots I own.

    Alt Mode: Cybertron Thundercracker - I'm a sucker for foreign aircraft alt modes, and Thundercracker is a well executed Flanker; it's a pity that the robot shoulders had to suffer so much to achieve a relatively kibble free aircraft. [Honorable mention to MP Starscream; he will take the top slot here when he's released in the US]

    Robot Mode: Cybertron Optimus Prime (Super mode) - In super mode, this Optimus Prime definitely has a presence that is hard to match. RiD Prime is a close second here and only falls to second because of stability issues with his super mode.

    Articulated: Armada Super-con Optimus Prime - Definitely not the most artculated 'bot I own, but it was such a breath of fresh air after the early part of Armada that he's got a special place on my list.

    Gimmick: Cybertron Cyber Keys - I've been a big fan of the cyber key gimmick all through Cybertron. From a story standpoint (I tend to ignore all of AEC), I can rationalize the keys as a form of condensed energon required to power special features, and that seems to make more sense to me than a little plane attached to a car makes it more powerful. Looking at the toys, the key gimmicks were generally well executed throughout the line.

    Color: Energon Starscream - I love the subdued version of the typical Starscream colors used here. Cybertron Cannonball is a close second here because a transformer pirate is a great concept.

    Fan-Mode: Armada Overload - I'm a big fan of the weapons platform mode. I like it even better when I assume that Rollout is LOC scaled.

    Weapons: Cybertron Defense Scattorshot - The Decepticons generally maintain air superiority in every series, so it's nice to see an Autobot that can act as a surface-to-air missile / anti-air artillery platform.

    Detail: RiD Sky-Byte - Tons of great molded detail that is highlighted with a lot of great paint aps.

    Overall: Cybertron Defense Scattorshot - easily my favorite Transformer. Imho, he's a great combination of colors, alt mode, gimmicks, and robot mode.

    Alt Mode: Masterpiece Megatron's or any of the gun ones really. Love that RPG toy stuff.

    Robot Mode: Pick a Masterpiece

    Articulated: Classics Mirage.

    Gimmick: BM Optimus Primal's Fling Poo attack. Just look at that green star. It looks like glowing, green, energon poo. If you mean show gimmicks, Trailbreaker's force field.

    Color: Takara's Masterpiece Starscream. Afterwards, Trailbreaker.

    Fan-Mode: Cybertron Shortround's toilet mode.

    Weapons: Cybertron Defense Scattershot's. Huge missiles!!

    Detail: Masterpiece Starscream

    Overall: Dunno...can't say. Probably Masterpiece Prime's or THS-02 Convoy.

    Alt Mode:MP-03 Starscream This is the most realistically detailed TF alternate mode I've ever seen, comparable to Yamato's Macross series (And to scale with my 1/60 YF-19 and VF-0) I love playing around with his jet mode.

    Robot Mode: Classics Bumblebee - Look at the guy, he just so gosh darn cute with that little smile and chubby build. Reasonably articulated too.

    Articulation: Classics Mirage - Double jointed FTW

    Gimmick: G1 Soundwave - Cassette Gimmick which he shares only with Blaster (and their respective Headmasters repaints) Well intergrated gimmick that works well in both Robot and alternate modes

    Colour: Movie Barricade - Black police car is really badass

    Fan-Mode:Armada Megatron, G2 Dreadwing + Smokescreen combination. Ingenious and badass looking. Also it helps that the toys involved are among my favourites

    Weapons:Vector Prime's sword. Very nicely detailed

    Detail: Armada Megatron, I'm a sucker for asymmetrical mechanical detailing
