    I am really into getting the legends figures. I have every movie one plus variants and am working on classics and cybertron. So I ask this question...

    what is your favorite? Which one do you least like? What character would you like to see? 'll start:

    favorite - I really, REALLY like Brawl. Very cool little figure. Only downside is the turret doesn't turn, but really, can you expect that at this scale? Beautiful robot mode, cool tank mode. Other notables - Jazz and Barricade

    Least favorite - I will say Starscream. I was going to put Megatron but his robot mode is not too bad. However, Starscream is awful. I will give him credit that his jet mode is decent, especially the allspark black, but overall he is awful. His arms are a joke, man.

    To echo other opinions I have seen on the boards, I would love to see a CC BB. Also, a blackout repainted evac, and a frnzy of some sort.

    Are you limiting this to just the Movie ones?

    nope. Guess I should have qualified. Mine were the movies, but I don't have any of the other ones except a cybertron hotshot and megatron.

    well, Cybertron Starscream is probably my favorite mold. I've dyed and repainted that one many times. I do love the Movie Brawl mold too though, as well as Ironhide's. Cybertron Evac is another really good one too. I'd love to see some new mold Classics styled ones in the upcoming Universe Legends line, no doubt about it.

    Movie Brawl and Ironhide are surprisingly great. I'd even say Legends Brawl is better than Deluxe Brawl.

    Legends Cybertron starscream - Good in both forms, Very articulated(excluding Arms), and has Weapons which looks both detailed and isn't transparent.

    Don't likes

    Legends Movie Ratchet - unarticulated, Colour choice is bad, Doesn't resemble his movie shape.

    I, too, have all of the movie ones, I leave them on my desk at work and they are great for fiddling around with while I talk on the phone. My favorites are Brawl, Bonecrusher, Blackout, and Ironhide. The most annoying one is Barricade.

    It's a tossup between Barricade and Cybertron Starscream.

    Worst is Bumblebee, hands down.

    Mi favorite is Movie Prime he's is imposing even with that small size, as the worst I will have to say Cybertron Red Alert.

    For Legends... top favorite is SDCC Skywarp, as I always wanted the Cybertron Starscream mold in Skywarp colors and the figure itself is a great replication of it's larger form, right down to the gimmick being intact.

    Honorable mentions to Cybertron Leobreaker, Movie Brawl and Barricade. I also like Movie Megatron being the only figure to retain the original head design and only Megatron with no wing kibble.

    Least favorite, ironically, Movie Starscream. Neither mode looks good and the awkward angles on his arms prevent any posing that could save it.

    Dishonorable mentions for Cybertron Red Alert and Movie Bumblebee.

    I have to ask, since I don't have the mold, what is up with Cybertron Red Alert? Is the mold bad?

    Yeah, Cyb Legends Red Alert is pretty bad. He's just boring, you can't pose him, and his cannon looks stupid since it shrunk down so much in comparison with his body.


    Also, my second favourite/joint favourite with BC is deffinately desert Blackout. The original Blackout was awesome, but this new paint sceme just makes him total win.

    Classics Trypticon and Movie Bonecrusher are the best, IMO.

    I like Movie Starscream!!!! All right he's not a beautiful character but the mold looks really much like the Decepticon in the film. He even has hands :D  First I didn't like him either but I started repainting him and now I have four movie Seekers sitting on my shelf.

    I agree with you about Jazz.

    Favourites: Blackout (both the original and the Desert versions) Starscream, Scorponok. I don't have any Cybertron/Classics Legends yet.

    I like all the Universe Legends I have so far (bumblebee, Brawn, Beachcomber, jazz, hound and megatron)

    My least favorite was Cybertron Optimus Prime. Nothing really bad about it, it was just boring
