    Everybody's favorite game show is back! Five Questions! In this episode I will name five bots and you choose the very best toy of them from any line and can even a third party if there is one for that bot. And please be as specific as possible so name the size class and/or repaint name if applicable.

    1. Ravage

    2. Bumblebee

    3. Ironhide

    4. Soundwave

    5. Lockdown

    And a bonus question...In your opinion, will Hasbro ever repaint a movie Optimus Prime into an Ultra Magnus? Yes or No?

    Hmm let's see...

    1. Ravage: I'm guessing the one that comes with [Universe Hound]? I don't have ravage toys but that one looks nice.

    2. Bumblebee: of the ones I have, I like [Animated activators Bumblebee] a lot. Small, simple and reminiscent of the original toy.

    3. Ironhide: I'd say [Henkei Ironhide].

    4. Soundwave: don't have him yet but I'm betting [War for Cybertron Soundwave] will be the best. (can't hide my love for animated soundwave, though). Device label is cool too.

    5. Lockdown: original colors [animated deluxe Lockdown].

    As for the bonus question: They might release a white/blue Prime but they'll name something fancy instead of Ultra Magnus (It'll be Prime + some title)

    1. Ravage - Beast Wars Metals

    4. Soundwave - Music Label

    5. Lockdown - Animated

    Bonus - Only when Ultra Magnus's trademark is due to expire

    I don't have knowledge of all the toylines, so I'll go with the ones I know.

    1. ROTF delux ravage

    2.Classics bee?

    3.Erm....HFTD ironhide?

    4.Music label soundwave.

    5.ROTF nest delux lockdown?

    Bonus question: No. Repaints are good and all, but it cant be good for poor UM's self-esteem.

    1. HFTD Legends Ravage I know, it's the usual he just came out answer. But this is the toy we should have gotten all along just like ROFT legends Wheelie. And for a legends he has alot of joints.

    2. HA Bumblebee He is the best "Bee" from the movie line. But the outflow of Bumblebee toys make me feel blah about him. I'm getting Classics Bee in a few weeks, maybe I will change my answer.

    3. Universe Ironhide Besides the blue face, I really like this toy.

    4. G1 Soundwave Can't beat the original here. He had sooo much playability with the tapes. The childhood memories flow from this toy.

    5. Animated Stealth Lockdown I have nothing to say except it's a really awesome toy. And he shows off another of his "trophies" that he stole from another bot that isn't a EMP or chainsaw. The ability to be invisible.

    No But it would be awesome.

    1. Universe Ravage (came with Hound).

    2. Classics Deluxe Bumblebee.

    3. Voyager Recon Ironhide blue & muddy repaint.

    4. Animated Deluxe Soundwave.

    5. Animated Deluxe Lockdown (the original).

    Bonus: At one point I would have said yes, but the way things are going, I doubt it'll ever happen. Even if it does, it'll probably be some weird random Japanese exclusive of some kind (kinda like the Nemesis Prime-like repaint).

    Ravage: Henkei.

    Bumblebee: Henkei.

    Ironhide: Henkei.

    Soundwave: Hen- Oh. Uh... G1. I don't even think of Music Label as a toy, just a novelty MP3 player. Whenever this gets made though... That.

    Lockdown: I could care less. I don't see the appeal in the character at all.

    Bonus: I think the most likely candidate for one would be the new Voyager mold, unless they keep going with the [function] Optimus Prime redecos.

    1. ROTF Ravage. I have Classics Ravage, Energon Battle Ravage, Alternators (Chevrolet) Ravage, and ROTF Ravage. While none of them actually stand out as a favorite, I went with the ROTF version because I've played with it the most.

    2. Animated Elite Guard Bumblebee. I have Animated Bumblebee, Animated Elite Guard Bumblebee, Classics Bumblebee, TFTM Bumblebee (Concept Camaro), ROTF Battlefield Bumblebee, and the Robot Heroes version that came with Long Haul. Animated is easily my favorite (I like the Elite Guard version more than the original) with Classics in close second.

    3. HFTD deluxe Ironhide. I have TFTM Offroad Ironhide, HFTD deluxe Ironhide, and the Robot Heroes versions that came with Bonecrusher and Dispensor. The HFTD deluxe is LOADS better than the voyager, in my opinion. I might even put the Robot Heroes versions over the voyager.

    4. Animated Soundwave/Animated Electrostatic Soundwave. I have ROTF Soundwave, Mighty Mugg Soundwave, Animated Soundwave, Animated Electrostatic Soundwave, Cybertron Soundwave, and Titanium Soundwaves. The Animated versions just give me the most playability. Titanium is at the other end of my favorite version list with its loose leg joints.

    5. Animated Lockdown. I have Animated Lockdown, ROTF Lockdown, and Animated Blazing Lockdown. I like the original Animated one the best, but they're all winners in my book.

    EDIT: As for an Ultra Magnus repaint of Optimus in the movie line......maybe. I have to be honest and say I'm surprised they haven't done one yet, but at the same time I'd rather they kept it that way. I've never bought an Ultra Magnus/Optimus repaint before, and I probably won't buy a movie one.

    For me...

    1. Ravage - Device Label Ravage edges out the RotF Legends

    2. Bumblebee - HftD Battle Blade Bumblebee

    3. Ironhide - Henkei Classics, I guess...the figure isn't spectacular but the transformation didn't traumatize me like the Movie Voyager. I'm optimistic about the upcoming Animated toy though.

    4. Soundwave - G1 (original or reissue).

    5. Lockdown - Animated Deluxe edges RotF Deluxe.

    Bonus - I'm mildly surprised it hasn't happened yet, even if it was a white repaint that Hasbro/Takara still called Optimus Prime but was clearly meant to be Ultra Magnus. If the color scheme was well done, I'd probably snap it up, especially if Ultra Magnus never makes the movieverse after all.
