I haven't received all of mine yet, but I'd like to know.
Best to worst, how do you rank them?
Of the ones I have and considering what I know of the ones I don't
G1 Ultra Magnus
WWI The Fallen
BM Cheetor (oh the irony of a die cast techno organic cheetah )
RiD Prime (Because the original's great; vehicle mode )
BW Op Op (no beast mode; Autobot? :-/)
WWI Prime (come on! it's WWI Prime )
WWI Starscream/Sunstorm (don't like the design, colors + no Skywarp to round it out)
WWI Ultra Magnus
Worst (these three are tied afaic)
I don't know a thing about WWI Prowl other than what I've seen through DON's pictures, so I'll hold off passing judgment. Soundblaster's a bit more obvious though.
TERRIBLE (got me out of the line entirely)
GI Joe Megs
Out of the 6 I have here is my list.
G1 Ultra Magnus
My Best from the ones I own:
RID Optimus Prime
RID Prime is my favorite of the line, fantastic in both modes and he's one of the few Titaniums to have gimmicks of some sort with his arm blasters and ladder cannon.
For the Worst in general:
GI Joe Megatron
I hate to put Primal there but I just find him really lacking, without the gorilla mode it's not much of a Beast Wars-based figure and his other two modes are too simple.
As for others. Scourge and Jetfire are decent, and Starscream loses points from Thundercracker because WW Screamer looked nothing like that. WW Megatron and Prime are both ones you have to get used to. G1 Magnus is good, solid figure, but he's got some flaws that keep him from being great in my opinion.
I only own WWI Prime and G1 Magnus, but both are great as far as I'm concerned. I love Don's designs ^^
*has all Titaniums up to G1 UM*
Just plain Ugly
Soundwave aka diaper daddy
Working off Samana's list, which I think is pretty solid, and not counting repaints:
Best: Rodimus Prime, G1 Ultra Magnus, WWI Jetfire
Good: Scourge, Seekers (I love these guys, although I did pass on Sunstorm)
Okay: WWI The Fallen, WWI Megatron, Soundwave (diaper aside, and I know he's not a real improvement on the original, I just love this guy, battery weapons and minitape especially)
Shouldn't have been made: RiD Prime (had a great toy already), BW Op Op (same here), BM Cheetor (and again)
Bad: WWI Prime (floppy arms FTL), GI Joe Megatron (no explanation necessary)
I wanted Titanium to be a collector's line that gave us what we didn't have already, and would never see in a mainline. The WWI molds were great for that. And I appreciate not getting a G1 Optimus Prime. But I woulda liked to have see a Nightbird, or a Devcon, or a Super Megatron. Character choices like that woulda kicked ass.
Well, kinda posted this in another thread, but here are the best to worst, for the ones I have.
GI Joe Megatron (He gets a lot of flack but as a statue he looks pretty cool)
Jetfire (Really dissapointed in this one, it was the only one that got decent feedback but just didn't live up to it in any way)
Wow, opinions all over the map, eh? Good luck sorting through them! Anyway, here's my list, of the ones I own:
2nd: G1 Magnus
3rd: Sunstorm/Starscream (tie)
6th: RID Prime
10th: WW Megs
11th: WW Prime
12th: WW Magnus
Worst: GI Joe Megs
I'm not a Beast Wars fan, so I don't own Cheetor or Op Op.... and Soundwave just looked too awful to purchase, on principle.
I'd say The Fallen was the best, but I just hate the damn floppy guns. They have the consistency of gummy worms. One of these days I'll try and think about how I can drive a needle or something through them so they'll stay straight.
Well, if I could find the remaining waves, I could rank them all (looking at the WWI and G1 versions only).
Best ones by looks Rodimus, Menasor, Scourge, and WWI Megatron. And I do like the looks of WWI Prime, though I never took him out of the box yet. WWI Jetfire I wish was more beefier looking.
Soundwave and GI Joe Megatron are pretty ugly, still bought them though.
Best: The Fallen
Worst: Optimal Optimus/first Megs/Scourge
Cheetor has been the most surprising decent for me and Soundwave and Jetfire both had potential but fell down in the ranks for technical/quality control problems (Soundwave's legs and Jetfire's backpack doesn't even latch on, and he looks like a stick figure without it)
Am I the only person that likes Diaperwave? He's so goofy and crappy that I just love him. He's cute as a button. And he's got a great head sculpt.
WWI Prime was SO bad that I never bought another Tit. He was my first and last. I received Soundwave as a gift.
I put the Fallen #1 because he looks good, has decent articulation, he's pretty hefty for his size classification, and probably best of all, he is really only available as a full transformer through this line.
Of the ones I have:
Depsite Optimal Optimus' lack of good alt mode, I really like his bot mode, which really stack up well to some of the other stiff bot modes of this line.
Oh, and I want to add that I really liked WW Primes Mold. His joints were floppy, but since his lower legs were so heavy he stood no matter what and my shoulders stayed in place unless I shook him around like a child on pixie sticks (i.e. my upstairs neighbors child). I also loved the gritty paint style and wish it was used more often.
Is that really a GI Joe Megatron or is that just what people call him? I skipped him. Hell he wasn't even completely assembled so I didn't bother with him...
