    What, in your opinion, is the most unique TF figure? What sets it apart form the others?

    For me, it would definitely be Beast Wars Neo Heinlad. I've never heard of it until I saw someone post it in the 'What TF did you buy last' thread. Definitely one of the most...unique TFs of all time.

    Funny, before I even read your post I immediately thought "Heinlad". :lol 

    He's a tanuki
    He's got a clock in his tummy
    He's got a takeout box gun
    He's got a sake gun
    He's got testicles

    And all of that wrapped up in a triple-changer.
    God bless whoever invented the thing.

    If only Dickbot the Blender guy got a toy.

    But the most unique IMO is Alpha-Q. Love him or hate him he's really an odd thing to behold.

    Wasn't there a Transmutate figure you could collect the pieces for with other Beast Wars figures? That looked pretty unique. Man, that thing gave me the creeps in that episode...

    Heinlad is one of the most unique TFs out there. I did a video review of this guy here...

    Are you talking about Transmutate? The one that was released with the 10th Anniversary Beast Wars line?

    That thing from Energy. With the three heads. That ugly bastard is the most unique.

    I'd go with either Heinlad, or RID Bruticus. That thing is utterly batshit in every possible way, shape or form.
    Of course there's also Megatron Megabolt and his "giant head with creepy insect legs" alt mode.

    Any of the Beast Wars Mutants would get my vote. Beasts that turn into other beasts...yeah. Not only that, but they fetch a pretty penny in the aftermarket.

    But for a single figure, I am gonna say BW Optimus Minor. A monkey that turns into another monkey with splitting hands.

    Going on a more recent release, I'd say Ejector. He's like the first household appliance TF and comes complete with a Brave Little Toaster homage in the tech spec.

    Alpha-Q

    Watchout, Alpha-Q if you let your guard down. Alpha-Q until you can't sit for a month.

    Alpha-Q is also my favourite TF name, as you see.

    I'd also have to say Ejector, the four armed, big mouthed, robot toaster. :lol 

    Others I might include are:
    -Air Hammer (Hammerhead shark/eagle Fuzor I believe)
    -Bantor (another Fuzor, a baboon and Tiger)
    -The Ice Cream Twins, just for the novelty of having two little pink robots combining into an ice cream truck.
    -TFA Shockwave, he has four modes, two Decepticon and two Autobots. That's always impressed me
    -Transformers Universe Silverbolt, since he's a purple half wolf, half eagle

    That's all I've got for now.

    -not to mention he looks like a freakin' imp-thing, with a tail from the toaster's plug.

    Injector is pretty unique, even for a BW Fuzor.

    For me, it's either Fuzor Torca or Transmetals Prowl.
