    Evening, all, just kicking this about:
    What, do you reckon, is the best ever mold (or best ever individual) TF toy car?

    Can be on the strength of the car mode, the bot mode, the transformation, the charisma of the toy, anything except just because it's your favourite TF character ("Ai likez Cl1ffjumpah, lulz").

    And, for now, just keep it to cars, not trucks. Hopefully, might do another thread, at another time, for trucks, or bikes, or whatevs.

    I reckon the Classics Mirage (the transformation, the articulation, the slickness of design) or Bumblebee (the charm, the concept) molds and the TFA Lockdown (I guess the legs are a little 'brickish' but both car and bot modes are vicious) mold would have to be at the top of my list.

    Universe Sunstreaker, and Movie Cliffjumper. Both are really fun to transform, and both look awesome in both modes!

    I really like Cybertron Downshift. A cool muscle car look and a classic muscle car paint job. And his bot mode is awesome too.

    Alternator Dead End.
    Everyone always raved about his sexiness, but I didn't know why based on the online pics.
    I was like"Ok, cool colors."
    Then I saw him recently in a comic shop.
    I was blown away!
    That thing is metalic, super glossed, badassery!
    The most beautiful TF I have EVER seen!
    Unfortunatly, I didn't have any money on me.(They were asking ~$20 for it.) :banghead:

    Movie Barricade. I totally dig his Saleen S281 Mustang police cruiser mode. Heck, he's entirely awesome no matter what. I might have a bit of trouble keeping his trigger arm in place, and his transformation is a bit tricky, but... I love him.

    For me it is Universe Sideswipe/Henkei Sunstreaker. Great design with two different bot modes. I like the size as well. Looks good in both modes.

    The Classics Mirage mold is probably my favorite followed closely by Classics Sunsrteaker mold.

    ROTF Sideswipe and Alternity Megatron are very cool alt modes.

    I also like Animated Bumblebee a lot.

    TFA Blurr is a Cybertronian Car, if it counts :p . Very good figure in vehicle and robot modes, IMO.

    HA Bumblebee and Sideswipe are other great car TFs.
