    There have been so many it isn't easy to pick just five.
    MP-36: This figure IS Megatron in every sense of the character.
    Cybertron: I truly enjoy the mold. Easily my favorite from the A/E/C saga.
    Animated Activator: Yeah, the Activator. It's my favorite version of the Animated design. The Leader is good, but the knock-knees irritate me.
    RiD (the REAL one): Absolutely love that dragon.
    RotF (Voyager): Love the TransTech influence, plus the figure is just fun.

    Honorable Mentions-
    TFP First Edition Deluxe: Everything the Voyager should have been.
    TFP Cyberverse Commander: No kibble and a decent alt mode.
    Animated Deluxe: I just really enjoy this figure. It isn't screen accurate, but it's very nice.
    Robot Masters Beast Megatron: In my opinion it's a lot better than the Ultra.

    I was just thinking tonight about how G2 Megatron doesn't get enough love.

    I am sorry I cant remember who it was to give credit. But last week a goy posted that TR Megatrons tank Barrel can relocate to his shoulder pointing up and it REALLY increases ho much that version looks like the classic character. I have had mine that way ever since.

    He also looks better with the little popup side horns beside his head kept in the down position.

    untitled.png For me the G1 box art is the gold standard.
    Closely followed by MP36, followed some way in the distance by Mightron. With maybe Apollyon somewhere on the horizon (now that figure had swagger)

    I had the G1 toy as a kid, the 2007 Bay movie Premium leader, and the RotF, but MP-36 is the one I've wanted for over thirty years. It's the only one I'll ever need.

    I think that was me, but yeah, it's a little far forward but I think it looks pretty cool there and helps get rid of the Blitzwing-esque barrel nub behind the head.
