    Most of the Armada line aside from Smokescreen, Sideswipe, and Hot Shot. I love the core four Decepticon molds, esp. Demolisher and Cyclonus. Also, Mini-Cons.

    Armada Smokescreen is pretty neat. Flawed, but not a horrid turd like he's made out to be. Could do with a better headsculpt, but his body style looks great.

    But I really like RotF Leader Megatron. Scary and imposing, and far more accurate than people give him credit for. Pretty much dead-on to the concept art.

    RotF Mixmaster is also a spectacular figure, given flak for how daunting his transformation sequence is (and even that's not really as bad as it looks. You just have to purposeful and systematic about it, or it's really easy to get yourself lost in a tangle of parts).

    Also, Universe Galvatron. Helps that I got one of the ones that don't fall apart at any given touch, but I'm enamored of his overall design. That right arm transformation just blows me away every time.

    Movie Deluxe Jazz. I actually like him a lot, despite everyone hating him. I wish I got the premium version of it though.

    ROTF Tuner Mudflap. Improved paint job, IMO. It is pretty tricky to get everything to line up in vehicle mode, though.

    Dark of the Moon Voyager Optimus.

    Picked him up today, after much time spent deciding whether or not I wanted it. I can happily say I don't regret it one bit, despite what I've read of most people's reactions to him being rather negative.

    DOTM Barricade. 2.0 Octane and Galvatron.

    Really love Barricade. Awesome Car. Better transformation, hands and overall look.

    DOTM Jolt looks really great. Gotta say, they should have done him up ROTF color scheme wise. ROTF didn't have too much paint, but the blue was so fantastic, and the paint was where it should be.

    Universe Ironhide and Ratchet. Sure, the vehicle is some awful jigsaw mess, but I like the robot mode. Still, I had to fix it so they're not looking down so much.

    I'm one of those who liked the Classics 2 pack Prime. With the punch action disabled, he is a nice little toy, and I actually like him BETTER than the Voyager release (neither had great headsculpts in my opinion).

    I also like Universe Cheetor. No, he isn't show accurate (which seems to be the main sticking point for many), but he is a nice reinterpretation of the character.

    Tuner Skids and Mudflap. Well, in general, Skids didn't seem to shelfwarm the same way Mudflap did, which is odd cos I think Mudflap's the better toy

    Classics 2-pack Prime... at least in bot mode.

    Universe Prowl... he's not one of the -most- hated, but some people seem to really be disappointed in him. I think he's above average, myself. Rapido's head looked cooler, though.

    Generation Kup's own head. Pfft, who needs IGear. This pretty much goes for all of the "head replacement" bots, like Hardhead and Skyjack. (though the Skyjack replacement was admittedly good)

    Universe Hot Shot, especially as Dion. I think this was one of the best of the Universe line. Others strongly disagree.

    Universe Powerglide, especially as Storm Cloud. If I wanted an unrealistically tiny jet I'd buy the Cyberjets... which I did... 15 times. I don't really mind Silverbolt being a stickman with a jet on his back, either.

    Classics Megatron's Hasbro color scheme. I like it.

    Classics Grimlock. While he's not a great representation of Grimlock, it's not a terrible toy.

    DOTM Wal-mart Prime's sprinklestars. They are awesome.

    Alternators Optimus. People seemed to think he was one of the least impressive, but I had an odd thing for him.

    Generations Darkmount/Skullgrin. I thought this toy was pretty popular when it was new, but lately Skullgrin's been shelfwarming and I've seen people saying he was one of their least favorite Generations figures. Whatevs, he's great
