    who's your favourite of the kid appeal charecters?

    Bumblebee (G1, Animated, TFTM)
    Wheelie (G1)
    Cheetor (BW)
    Sideburn (RID)
    Hotshot (Armada, Energon, Cybertron)
    Ironhide(Energon)
    Skids and Mudflap (Rotf)

    For me it's Hotshot, I got into Transformers during the Unicron trilogy, he was cool to me and I blame the Cybertron Version who got me addicted to collecting transformers.

    who's your fav?

    My vote's for G1 Bumblebee. He had a chip on his shoulder with something to prove, yeah. But he never flaunted it too much where it'd be really annoying in my opinion. That and he was generally a pretty happy-go-lucky little VW Beetle.

    I would've preferred that you separate the three Bumblebees.

    Coming from the BW era, I'd have to support Cheetor. Though personally Rattrap was always may favourite as a kid - funny > yellow in my opinion.

    Got to go with Cheetor, maybe because we actually got to see him evolve from kid-appeal to Leader naturally.

    Plus, as kid-appeal, he was at his best in Season 2. He was energetic without being the little turd he was during the first five episode of Season 1, and he was funny. Plus I liked how he had a father/son relationship with Primal at times. Really reflected positively on both characters. Same with Rattrap, albeit more of a older sibling/best friend angle.

    Plus, you gotta love how he shows his age when he calls Blackarachia ugly in Season one, then goes on to droolign at the sight of her in Season 3.

    Not my favourite, but I'd say it's gotta be Bumblebee.

    Why else would Hasbro release a version of him in practically every wave of every line?

    Why'd you pick him if he's not your favourite?

    Bumblebee. Pretty much the only kid appeal character I liked in the 80's. Didn't like Orko, Wheelie, Daniel, Snarf, T-Bob, Copper Kid, Webigail, Pidge or the cat in Pole Position.

    I don't really like anyone of the selection much, but I voted Bumblebee. I still like him the most, but not enough to ever wanting him as a toy.

    Can I take the Brewsters Millions option?

    I liked Sari from Animated, and really thought I would hate her. Cheetor was okay until he became all cool, edgy and Jeff Hardy-esque with his transmetal 2 body.

    I think I misunderstood the question. I thought it was asking who, in my opinion, had the most kid appeal.

    Ah well. :dunce 

    *edit* having said that, it would probably be a tie between Cheetor and G1 Bumblebee. I just would have preferred the 3 BBs to have been seperate options.

    Although I grew up with G1 I have to go with Cheetor as my fav! Didn't see any appeal in Bumblebee nor Wheelie, who was quite annoying.

    Gotta go with Armada Hot Shot. He was my first TF figure, and he's also the only Armada Era character to get a new mold in Universe.

    I liked Sari most.
    But she's not here.
    So I'll go with Cheetor.
    Because he was one of the few to actually grow during a given series. (Bumblebee is another that I can think of ATM)

    Bumblebee, followed closely behind by Hot Shot.



    And I don't think that ROTF Skids and Mudflap would qualify as kid appeal characters, especially given that most people view them as being wannabe gangsters.
