    Movie Prime, because he has no similarities to other versions other than being voiced by Cullen. Also, douchebag flames.

    not sure what the prime's called but the classics version that came with megatron and a dvd. He has a swivel waist which is completely useless IMHO.

    I dont know much about the RID and UT Primes (I assume they're generic Japanese 'good guys always win and espouse virtures' heroes), but I voted TF: Prime. Hasbro claimed the series is supposed to show us "what it means to be a Prime," but so far all its shown us is how cool Arcee is (which is probably a good thing, since it might help legitimize female TFs in the long run). Optimus himself is just a billboard with a deep voice.

    RID Prime - don't like his voice, or his face, or his character. His basic toy is pretty sweet, not so much combined unless it's with Magnus.

    Toy wise - Beast Machines Optimus toys were all pretty lousy, except for the one they released in the RiD packaging.

    I voted Energon Prime. Nothing against the character, I liked him, since he's an older Armada Prime, but, the toy just sucked.

    I haven't watched all the cartoon series' yet, so my opinion might change, but so far my least favourite has to be TFP Prime, no offense to Cullen, but his voice is just so wooden; every time he speaks and gives off one of his speeches I find myself almost drifting off. He almost redeemed himself in the episode "On Shall Fall", but not by much

    Agreed! Not only that, Energon also had Kicker and Snowcat, so it was just all around awful. The only good things that show had going for it were Inferno, Shockblast and Scott McNeil.

    Of the list I'd have to say Energon.

    For the reasons Prowl 2009 & Auto Morph have stated.

    At least that series gave us a good Megatron figure.

    Usually it is the other way around.

    Good Optimus Prime figure and Megatron gets the short end of the stick.

    I picked Prime Prime... Only because I haven't watched enough of the series to really figure out which characters I like best. So far in that series I don't care for Prime or Bulkhead.

    I picked movie Prime because the character was such a departure from the Prime I grew up with, given a terrible "I'm a bad-ass" update.

    My least favorite versions of Optimus are Animated, Beast Wars, and Energon Optimus.

    Design-wise, I disliked Beast Machines Optimus and Energon Optimus, though Armada Optimus is bad due to lack of articulation (which Bendy Prime fixed).

    Characterization-wise, I really don't like Beast Machines Optimus, for a lot of the same reasons that many fans complain about him. The anime Optimuses (RID, Unicron Trilogy) were OK when I was a kid, but looking back on them now, they have no personality.

    For a while, TFPrime Optimus ranked at the bottom, but his performance in One Shall Fall bumped him up. Now he just needs to emote and he's fine.

    Energon Optimus. Goes from fatass to Megazord ripoff. And just like every character in Energon, he has no personality.

    Aren't three of those the same character?

    And you aren't talking about the toys, because you only have one each of G1 and Optimus Primal...

    Not voting, as I don't know enough about A/E/C. Although I would like to point out that G1 Optimus was often written as insane to the border of uselessness, as one of the few ways to nerf his overwhelming power.
