    DOTM is approaching and people spent plenty of money on the ROTF toys, but which did you consider to be the best and worth your monetary investment?

    Leader Optimus Prime? Or something else?

    IMHO. Bludgeon/Banzaitron. Does HFTD count?

    There are plenty of them I like almost equally, but my top 3 choices are probably:
    Buster Prime
    HA Jazz
    Leader Starscream

    Buster Prime or Movie MP Starscream

    I also think the first versions of Deluxe Sideswipe and Skids were pretty great.

    I gotta say Leader Prime was my best one. Coming right behind is HA Jazz, Leader Starscream, and Battle Blades Bumblebee.

    I can't think of anything better than Buster Prime.

    Lots of excellent figures, but that is one that you couldn't really say needed any improvement.

    Leader Optimus Prime.

    Fantastic figure.

    Masterpiece level, easily.

    Buster Prime.

    But Leader Starscream and HA Jazz rate high, imo.

    Followed closely by the HA line.

    Breakdown.

    Looks great with Movie or Classics figures. Has some great articulation. Love setting him against G1 Prowl.

    Nightbeat.

    One of the best repaints ever. The alt mode is amazing. I'm no customiser regrettably but to make him seem more G1, I swap his feet around in bot mode so the headlights are facing the same dirsction as his torso. I keep his actual head tucked down while holding the head of Mega SCF Star Convoy in his hand. I'm hoping to get the head repainted so it blends better.

    More Scout cars for TF3. Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Jolt, Sideways and Barricade would be nice. Oh and a few more Stunticons for Breakdown.

    The best figure that I got was probably...hmm...I have a tough time deciding between Leader Screamer and HA Barricade. (Didn't get Leader Prime)

    Lockdown
    Brawn

    Voyager:
    Recon Ironhide
    Bludgeon
    Mindwipe
    Starscream

    Leader:
    Buster Prime For him alone
    And Black Prime for Jet Optimus

    For HFTD.

    Scout: Again, all but backfire

    Deluxe:
    BB Bee
    SA Sideswipe
    Terradive
    Tomahawk
    Hailstorm
    Axor

    Then HA for both:
