    Like the title says i want to know your favourite interesting certain parts of a transformation

    Example:i like the way universe infernos head flips up instead of popping up

    the way universe infernos shoulder guards panels fold up so nicely

    universe classics nemesis primes smoke stacks and wind vane transform into weapons

    Animated leader bulkhead i like the way all his wheels fold in and cant be seen in robot mode

    Animated jazz the way his front wheels fold in to fill out his chest.

    now its time for your favourites.:cool:

    I remember being really impressed by the first Alternator / Binaltech Smokescreen and the way the side door panels and seats came together to build his waist...a design later repeated with Meister, etc...

    MP Optimus' whole torso. Ingenious how they designed it to hide all the truck parts, and even have it so that the robot isn't using the truck's grill, but a smaller, slimmer hidden grill.

    I love the automorph in Animated Lugnut. It's damned impressive. That was a figure I didn't really like untill I experienced it in person.

    I love how deluxe earth Animated Optimus kept the typical Optimus look, while reinventing the typical Optimus transformation. That was in danger of getting old. I especially like how the torso is formed.

    Classics mirage is another good one. The legs and arms fold up in the most elegant way.

    ROTF Voyager Starscream has one of the most brilliant transformations ever. You basically turn his jetmode inside out. The beauty of this is how simple it is to transform, in spite of it's relative high complexity. Everything functions so well. The joints all rotate smoothly, you have tension where you want it, and some really satisfying clicks when parts shift into place. Some people think the previous movie Starscream looked better, which is debatable, but it had nowhere near the finesse.

    I was in for a surprise when I first did ROTF Prime's feet.

    Some Legends class figures impress me with how efficient their transformations are. Legends Wheelie and ROTF Optimus are just superb. Even the slots on the legs' ball joints are used to peg things in place.

    I like how Universe Warpath's head opens up from his turret, and how his gun can then slide back into the turret, filling the space where his head used to be.

    The way Armada Prime's grill transforms was really cool. Another nice transformation is Scavenger/Demolisher's treads turning into wheels which was really surprising.

    -How BW Bonecrusher can look extremely kibbly yet awesome at the same time
    -Rotating then sliding Animated Bumblebee's torso
    -Animated Soundwave's legs
    -the way you push Movie 1 Starscream's torso upward, and the Automorph that follows
    -Breakaway's wings

    I know these are sort of weird, but I'm sort of a weird person. ;)

    Masterpiece Optimus - the front wheel wells flipping around to form the sides of the waist.

    Alternators Smokescreen, Meister, and their mold-mates - The floor and seats folding in to fill out the waist.

    Animated Blackarachnia - Spider fangs and such forming ... the waist area.

    I seem to have a limited range here. :)

    Universe/Henkei Cyclonus' feet are impressive.

    MP Primes whole chest transformation is amazing

    MP Grimlock's legs impress me more than anything.

    I love Alternator Jazz/Shockwave/Silverstreak/Smokescreen/etc waist transformation.

    Universe/Henkei Sunstreaker/Sideswipe has a wonderful head reveal.

    ROTF Voyager Starscream is enjoyable all around.

    Animated Swindle's arms always pleased me.

    ROTF leader Optimus, the whole figure is truly a work of art. Kudos to Hasbro for such a splendid job.

    The way the Arcee sisters each fold together and a lot of beams origami into each other to form the bikes.

    Both movie Prime molds feet :) 

    I loved the first time I transformed Armada Overload and he made the Transformation noise (only acceptable sound for toys)

    And I love classics Prime and Megs

    Animated Blurr's whole transformation, how he unfolds into an incredibly poseable and very elegant figure. With special mention for the really cool way his feet form.

    Animated Prowl's legs, one's the front and one's the back of the bike, yet he's symmetrical when he's transformed.

    Probably more later as I wake up.
