which faction has the best toys out of all the lines in your opinion?
Decepticons. The evil guys always have the better toys.
G1 - Truck or a Gun
G2 - Truck or a Tank
BW - Gorilla or a Tyrannosaurus
BWTM - Gorilla or a Dragon
Armada - Truck or a Tank
Energon - Truck or a Jet... with a tank attached to it
Cybertron - Truck or a Jet that also turned in a Speed Car
Usually Decepticons. They didn't have the stupid and pointless combining gimick in energon, as it should be noted.
The Autobots do have their gems, though, like Animated Ultra Magnus
Ha...good point. I can't argue with that.
The Autobots have some great gems, but in the most generic of terms, 80% of the Autobots are cars, compared to the plethora of variety found in the Decepticon ranks. Sure, they may be a lot of Jets, but they're never the overwhelming majority in any line for the Decepticon faction.
IMHO, specifically, I'd say the Energon/Superlink Decepticon lineup, it's the only line where I got nearly every Decepticon figure. (I passed on Sixshot and Tidal Wave, given that I had Armada Tidal Wave and Shockblast, and it seems wisely, the Energon combiners.)
I've always had a crush for Decepticon toys, but since the movie line, my love for the Autobots grew alot.
I choose Maximal.
Black Zarak, Scorponok, Overlord, Dezasorus, Lio Kaiser, Brutiucus...these are a few of my FAVS!
Decpts got it.
the 'cons got it, definitely...apart from the classic autobots (not the classics line ), i believe the decepticons have got some cooler figure... but its hard to generalize
fr the movie defenetly the aubots. i cant say much about classics since theres not many decepticon molds out, but overall the freakin decepticons.
i agree with cons, but not the preds.
The preds were Megatron+Terrorsaur+Rampage, maybe a few others i dont recall.
Everyone else was an insect or an arachnid. It's like G1 autobot cars, but a far worse degree.
BM-vehicons, BUT if u count air attack primal, he wins best mold.
Armada-who the hell cares they all sucked.
Energon- cons, mirage had best mold from entire trilogy
Movie 2- bots
animated - bots
classics- the few cons
I think overall, I have more Autobots. Mostly due to G1, I think there were just more 'bot than 'cons in the toy line. Specially the first couple of years.
However for the most part, save G1, it's a pretty even split 'bots to 'cons. Since I'm a bit anal that way that I like to have an even number of good guys and bad guys so I'll always try to find the same amount of one and the other that I like when getting into a new line.
I guess I'm alone in saying that I usually prefer the look to the Autobots. Though I would say its literally about 50-50 for every line sans the movie. Movie-verse wise, the designs of the Autobots mutilates the designs of the Decepticons.
I agree with the consensus of this thread. D-Con's FTW!
