    So basically, which of your bots is considerably different from the others in your collection? Like, it doesn't have to be your newest/biggest/current favorite one (although it could be), but more so the one that's the most unique & different in whatever way you consider it to be.

    For example, my newly acquired Beast Machines Blackarchnia (+rep dguastel) is more than a little different from any sort of TF that I've owned in the past (being feminine like an action figure with virtually no kibble in the way that she is), and the same could be said for my road ready mutations Donatello who transforms into a Porsche & who I still believe was shells ahead of it's time.

    In other words, which one of your bots are not like the others? :D ream:

    My McDonald's Frybots, they definitely don't blend in with the crowd.

    This is tough, because I have my figures displayed by theme so they all seem to fit in on their own shelves... I would probably have to say Gobots Grungy just because he looks so damn 80's retro even compared to my G1 figures. The Rock Lords tend to stick out a little as well.

    From the Transformers side of things I would say that Torca, Tripredacus, Magnaboss and Dirgegun get a lot of attention. Beast Wars had some pretty crazy ideas going on at the time.

    Well, it wasn't mine, hehe.

    Also yeah, the mcdonalds toys are pretty unique, and if nothing else, they take me back to a day when shit from there actually didn't suck ass.

    McDonalds' Animated Toys from 2008 were pretty awesome. The Bumblebee was a better toy than G1 Bumblebee.

    As I've got two from every line, there's no real single standout on the Transformers front. Potentially though it could be Botcon 2009 Razorclaw since I have none of the 2006 guys he is meant to interact with.

    I'd probably say Beast Wars Orcanoch fails to fit in with the rest of my stuff more strongly than anything else I have.

    Delicate Warrior is completely different to anything else I own, but as far as i'm concerned, she's perfect.

    That repaint of BW Megatron called "T-Wrecks" or whatever.

    Funny thing is that I just found his hip-launching disc-thingies when I was redoing my room a few weeks ago. Don't know how the hell they ended up UNDER the carpet. :confused:

    Probably Animated Black Arachnia, but that's no bad thing as she's the best fembot we've had yet.

    I have a lot of bots that don't go well with any transformers line, but as a result, nothing looks weird or out of place in my collection.

    HFTD Seaspray. Leader Starscream. As much as I like him, I think he's to big to go my movie shelf.

    Not a TF, but my Busou Shinki fig really stands out in my figure collection (See collection count for more information).
