    From the TF1 movie toyline, to the ROTF toyline, which version of a character was most improved from the first line.

    I would say either ROTF Leader Prime, or HA Bumblebee were the biggest improvements in terms of sculpt and screen-accuracy(and I know HA Bumblebee isn't completely accuarate). So, hoe do you think is "most-improved"?

    Leader Prime, I'm still wondering if the third movie's Prime toy can top this one.

    Prime and starscream (voyager rotf> tftm screamer ) and most likely the leader starscream will make the tftm one look like a g1 action master...

    Prime most definitively, but Voyager Megs and Screamer' are up there as well. ROTF Screamer's design is more screen accurate, but his chicken legs are a step down IMO from his movie 1 incarnation. Megs, on the other hand, has a fantastic head sculpt, articulated, and is downright menacing compared to movie 1's Mr. Iceman.

    Leader Prime, agreed.

    Voyager Starscream is an improvement in some areas, but is worse in others. The addition of hands is a welcome improvement, but the legs are not.

    I was surprised by how much I like Cannon Bumblebee over the original mold. Not perfect but I think it is a step up.

    Disagree. The new legs even add a swivel rotation to the thigh on top of the existing functionality. With ROTF SS on shelves, the old 2007 model is a big pass.

    Leader Prime hands down. Honorable mention goes for Screamer and Megs but nothing spectacular IMHO, it's an improvement over a pretty meh base to begin with.

    ROTF Prime is a nice improvement from the TFTM and also having a new version Bumblebee, as in the Human Alliance version, is also a nice improvement from the previous TFTM toy line.

    I'd have to agree with most people here. Voyager Megatron is much better this time around even if the color scheme isn't entirely screen accurate. I love Leader Class Prime (even if I don't really transform him that often) and Starscream is a definite step up from the first movie. However, my favorite is Human Alliance Bumblebee. I just like the intricate transformation and general scale of the figure.

    It's hard to find an argument against Leader Class Optimus Prime, so I'll have to agree and say OP is the biggest improvment and probably the best figure in the line.

    Human Alliance Bumblebee though is one hell of a figure.
