    "its so easy to laugh, so easy to hate, It takes guts to be gentle and kind" the smiths sang in 1987. this lyric pretty neatly describes the motivation behind trolling or overtly cynical and negative fandom its just easier and lazier .I have read enough negative fandom since I got online to rot my brain and this left me wanting to know who do you love? now fellow transformer fans and obsessives lets be brave and positive and gush with praise for our favourite transformer characters

    It's the biggest cliche in Transformers, but I really like Optimus Prime. Looks cool, sounds cool, and personality-wise has been described as a combination of Abraham Lincoln and John Wayne.

    What's less of a cliche is that tied for my top spot is Rodimus Prime. I really enjoyed the movie back in the day, and I liked the coming of age aspect of the story. And as much as I did and do continue to like Optimus, I was really disappointed when they brought him back at the end of season 3.

    When we first get introduced to Optimus in MTMtE, he's already perfect. He knows what to do to get the job done. Any job. But when we are shown glimpses of his past, we see he wasn't always like that. It was a role he grew into. At first, he didn't think he was worthy. He wasn't sure of himself. And the idea of that fascinated me, knowing what he was to later become.

    So Rodimus Prime was a chance to get to watch that process first-hand, rather than come in after he already came out the other side. We saw Rodimus had doubts. Like younger Orion/Optimus, Rodimus Prime wasn't sure how he measured up. I think it is the biggest missed opportunity of the original series we weren't given the time to see Rodimus go through the character development from his unsure beginnings to the confident leader all the past Primes including Optimus knew he was destined to be. All to placate the younger viewers traumatized by Optimus' death (and their angry parents).

    Anyway, so yeah... Optimus and Rodimus. My favorites.

    I have to say Dinobot. As much as I adore the entire series of Beast Wars, I always felt that whenever he wasn't on screen I was waiting for him to appear. He's like the Jack Sparrow or Han Solo of Beast Wars - one of the great anti-heroes. IMO, one of the greatest characters ever to have been created in Transformers since the franchise began almost 30 years ago.

    Honourable mentions to G1 Starscream, Beast Wars Megatron, Animated Lockdown and Prime Ratchet.

    Starscream, I love him in pretty much any continuity he's in, maybe except for Energon, but then I don't really know because I refuse to go back and watch the rest of it.

    My most liked TF Character is G1 Hot Rod / Rodimus Prime. I generally like him because of his role he served in the original 86 movie, but I've come to also like his IDW character as I plow through the comics.

    Dinobot by far. He was the first winner of the Hall of Fame beating out bots like Grimlock, Soundwave, Shockwave and Jazz.

    RID Scourge, Sky-Byte and Armada Starscream are also on the list.
