    Happy New Year eveyone.

    I would like to ask:
    What's your favorite G2 figure?

    Eveyone always talks about G1 this and G1 that, but what about G2? Who's your Favorite? Who do you hate with a burning passion?


    For me, I really like the Dinobots. i know they are from G1 but i like their new colors. Especially Blue Grimlock. He's awesome.

    As for my favorite, I don't have him yet but i really want Volt. He transforms into a b1tchin hot rod and has awesome posability.

    What about you?

    I love them all, but Skram and Turbofire will always be my faves because they were my first TFs.

    Cyberjets, Rotorforce, and Dinobots were some of my other favorites though.

    G2 Optimus Prime.

    Growing up Optimus Prime was always a burning image in my mind with the slick black trailer and voice box that sounds nothing like him.

    By far my favorite toy ever.

    Cyberjets for me - hitherto-unseen levels of articulation and posability in small, affordable TFs. I felt they set the standard for years to come.

    I love and hate the same 1. Mister Gold plastic himself G2 Slingshot. I have a complete G2 Superion on display with 2 G2 Skydive's serving as legs because my first Slingshot broke. I bought a replacement on eBay but it came to me with a snapped neck that had been superglued! So that was replaced by a MOSC specimen that I'm saving for posterity and refuse to open.

    All that horror aside he is a beautiful Airelbot I still display my broken eBay ripoff because I love the way that teal blue head, silver chest and gold body come together. Very striking.

    My favorite G2 Transformers are the Laser Rods. I watched the commercials growing up and never got them. I finally got the chance a couple of years ago and they're all awesome :D 

    I got the Laser Cycles and Laser Rod Prime through their RID incarnations and Dreadwing that way as well.

    Gobots is another of my favorites because I got it for my 9th birthday. Broke it as soon as I opened it in the parking lot :(

    Love G2. Much as I grew to love the Dreamwave comics which got me back into collecting Transformers, I was disappointed that they didn't continue on from the G2 comics.

    Love the Euro Stormtroopers, Pyro, the Laser Rods and Skram and Zap/Windbreaker.

    I only wish the Seekers and G2 Sideswipe had been newer characters, though these days I see G2 Ramjet as the G1/G2 version of Animated Slipstream.

    Loved the idea of another faction and personally, I like to base the modern series characters on the various Cybertronian colonies.

    Would love to see Cybertron Starscream as Jhiaxus.

    Since they use so many molds, I like to think of Robotmasters as an extension of G1/2.

    G2 is definitely my favourite series alongside G1.

    Laser Prime and and Dreadwing/Smokescreen, though both have been improved by later repaints since.

    Sideswipe. A black Lambo. Laser Prime was the best new mold.

    Laser OP and Dreadwing/Smokescreen combo. Hands down the best molds of G2. Also excellent figures are the Laser Rods, hero Megatron and Cyberjets.

    Personally, I've always considered G2 part of G1, mostly becasue of the comic book. The only G2 molds I have is Laser Op and Hero Megs. I also have many of the gobot molds, when they were re-released for RID, and the Yellow Devastator, though I also have the G1. And G2 Starscream. I also have a G2 gobots Soundwave MOSC, as part of my Soundwave collection.
