    I´d like to know your favorite, why and maybe some pics of mods or repaint.
    The reason I ask is easy: When I have the time, I´ll do some more car robot TFs and I´m looking for inspiration.
    My favorite right now is the Jazz mold (Ricochet) which I think is a very nice toy for stop motion cos it´s easy to transform, the body and shell look cool.
    Thanks for your participation in this thread.

    I'd like to see some new characters made from Hot Rod.

    I bought a nice custom of Hot Rod from Clocker a few years back.

    I'd love a head remold and repaint of Windcharger as Kick Off or Armada Sideswipe, Black Jack too and I don't think he'd need a head remold.

    Out of the choices, I have to pick Sideswipe, I've done maybe four customs with this guy. Lots of screws, very few pins, easy to assembly and obvious rubbing points easy to sand down.

    I'm going to say Hot Rod only because I have two customs planned out of it. The rear exhaust leaves so much room for extra things to be added, weapons, connectors, etc.

    The only reason I didn't pick Sideswipe is because I hate the arm transformation of that mold. It's just annoys the hell out of me. Also, that Sunstreaker head is one of the worst I've seen, though the Swipe head I like. Plus, the legs I find somewhat difficult to pose to look...well, natural I guess. Maybe that's my personal bias seeping in there, though.

    And I didn't pick Jazz because I've yet to find one in this corner of Mars I happen to live in. Yes, it's that far away from everywhere else in toy land, sadly.

    Bumblebee I really like to customise, and my avatar is proof of that. The thing is, though, it's gotten kind of hard to make a character from it, as almost every colour is taken. Blue for Glyph, green for Tap-Out, Red is Cliffjumper, black/white is Runamuck/bout (I can never remember which is which)...you get what I mean. Still, I really like that mold, for all it's flaws.

    Second vote for the sideswipe/ sunstreaker toy. Very easy to customise and many characters can be made from it.

    I voted Jazz as he's something I'm working with at the moment. He's just got a fun easy mold for customs, in my opinion. I'd love to make a Hot Rod using Jazz's mold, but would need a head for him...
