    From any series, it's got to have 4 wheels (or a good excuse for more), be generally car shaped and fall under a general definition of deluxe.

    For me it's a tie between Movie Landmine and Animated Soundwave. Landmine's car mode is just really awesome and he's got nice posability. For Soundwave I really like the shape of his car mode, it's just really boxy and yet also very menacing. It's also hard to beat his really awesome transformation. Oh yeah, and Laserbeak!

    G-1 Hot Rod. My favorite G-1 TF so what he can't do dynamic poses he still beats many tf's in coolness...

    Are we talking just in car mode, here?

    Off the top of my head:

    Movie Jolt: Never picked up any other version of this mold, so the badassness of this toy was all new to me. Plus, I really dig the purple and silver color scheme.

    Animated Lockdown: A cartoony muscle car covered in spikes? Hell yeah! Not one of the greatest toys ever, by any means, but a damn cool car.

    G1 Kup: I dunno if he qualifies as a deluxe or not, but I've always loved his truck mode.

    Energon Towline: Tons of playability, and a really cool van kinda thing.

    I'm sure that after I think about it for a minute, I'll be all like "Oh, snap, there was that one, too. And this other..." but, yeah, screw it, that's what comes to mind for now.

    Classics Mirage. I'd say Titanium RID Optimus Prime, but he doesn't turn into a car.

    I'd say it's going to be either Universe Sideswipe or Silverstreak. Both are gorgeous and I cannot wait to get them in hand. Until then it's Botcon 2007 Clear Mirage. Great concept and excellent execution of one of the most memorable G1 "special powers", and a spectacular well-articulated mold too! :D

    I've got a few favorites here...

    1. RID Prowl/Mach Alert - I've always thought his robot mode looked really incredible...and that Diablo vehicle mode is just HOT.

    2. Classics Bumblebee - The first time we got a good, G1 cartoon-looking 'Bee figure. The vehicle and robot mode were so distinctly him that it made me really happy.

    3. Cybertron Defense Hot Shot - the vehicle mode is pretty groovy on this guy, but it's the sheer imposing might of the robot mode that does it for me.
