    Right, so seeing as how the only figures that've yet to be released are Hightail and the Shadow Recon team, the Unicron Trilogy is finally coming to a close. So I figured we remember the good times and the bad times of the past four or five years (I've lost count :p ).
    Here's my list-

    Best Minicon team- Armada Repaint Emergency Team
    Worst Minicon team- Armada Street Action team

    Best Scout/Basic figure- Cybertron Armorhide, all kinds of awesome
    Worst Scout/Basic figure- Cybertron Backstop, all kinds of not-awesome

    Best Deluxe figure- Energon Sharkticon
    Worst Deluxe figure- Armada Smokescreen

    Best Mega/Voyager figure- Cybertron Starscream, even though that version of the mold was never released in original colors out here
    Worst Mega/Voyage- Energon Ironhide, still the winner as the biggest shelfwarmer of all time

    Best Ultra- Armada Tidal Wave (though he could've used some more poseability...)
    Worst Ultra- Armada Powerlinx Jetfire, just for seeming like a lacking repaint of an otherwise -great- figure. In fact, I can't think of a mold in the ultra class size from UT that I don't like

    Best Leader- Cybertron Optimus Prime
    Worst Leader- Energon Optimus Prime

    Best Supreme- Primus
    Worst Supreme- Omega Supreme

    Best gimmick- Energon weapons
    Worst gimmick- Cyber Keys/Force Chips (just could never get used to 'em as a source of power, they're like dumbed down Minicons)

    just going off the cuff here...

    Best Minicon team- Arm/Cyb Street Speed Team ~ little bundles of Awesome
    Worst Minicon team- Arm Adventure Team ~ Micromasters laugh at them, and there interaction with Cyclonus was laughable

    Best Scout/Basic figure- E. Sledge and the F-22 bros
    Worst Scout/Basic figure- Cybertron Backstop and the Dinosaur

    Best Deluxe figure- to many too count. C. Sideways, Landmine, Excellion, Crosswise, CD Hot Shot E Starscream, Sharkticon and Slugslinger...
    Worst Deluxe figure- Arm Hot Shot, Sideswipe, Sideways, E. Inferno, Snowcat and Demolisher, C. Thundercracker

    Best Mega/Voyager figure- Cybertron Scattorshot and Evac, both made with 100% Awesomesauce, E. Mirage
    Worst Mega/Voyage- Energon Ironhide and Arm Starscream (+ redecos), Scavanger and Overload

    Best Ultra- Landmine, Quickstike or CD RedAlert
    Worst Ultra- friggen' Armada Megalvatron, just a sucktacular mold with bad proportions and a critical lack of articulation. 5 years later it still angers me that i purchased this in a post RiD/BW world.

    Best Leader- Cybertron Optimus Prime and E Galvatron
    Worst Leader- E and Arm Optimus Prime. both sucky in there own ways.

    Best Supreme- Primus, Omega Sentinal
    Worst Supreme- Arm Unicron, looks like a little kid in a pumpkin outfit ~ terrible proportions, TERRRRRRRIBLE planet mode. Primus points and laughs at him. the E. redeco was pretty sweet though.

    Best gimmick- Energon weapons
    Worst gimmick- articulation and engineering hampering Minicon interaction. the Cyberkeys seemed designed to interfere with the toys far less, and often actually added play value rather than detracting from it.

    Minicon (Individual)
    BEST - Stormcloud (Armada, Sea Team)
    WORST - Nightbeat (Armada)

    Minicon (Team)
    BEST - SWAT Team and Sky Terror Team, tie (Cybertron, Minicon VS Packs)
    WORST - Perceptor Team (Energon version)

    Basic/Scout
    BEST ORIGINAL - Red Scrapmetal (Cybertron) and Divebomb (Energon), tie
    BEST REPAINT - Swerve (Cybertron)
    WORST ORIGINAL - Backstop and Lugnutz, tie (Cybertron)
    WORST REPAINT - Energon Strongarm (Energon)

    Deluxe
    BEST ORIGINAL - Sharkticon (Energon)
    BEST REPAINT - Nemesis Prime (Armada)
    WORST ORIGINAL - Side Swipe (Armada)
    WORST REPAINT - Skywarp (Cybertron)

    Mega/Voyager
    BEST ORIGINAL - TRU Exclusive Voyager Starscream (Cybertron)
    BEST REPAINT - Galaxy Force Vector Prime (Cybertron) and Dreadwing (Energon), tie
    WORST ORIGINAL - Scavenger (Armada) and Grimlock/Swoop two-pack (Energon), tie
    WORST REPAINT - PLX Red Alert (Armada)

    Ultra
    BEST ORIGINAL - Tidal Wave (Armada)
    BEST REPAINT - Dark Scorponok (Cybertron)
    WORST ORIGINAL - Menasor (Cybertron)
    WORST REPAINT - PLX Jetfire (Armada)

    Leader
    BEST ORIGINAL - Optimus Prime (Cybertron)
    BEST REPAINT - Galvatron (Cybertron)
    WORST ORIGINAL - Optimus Prime (Energon)
    WORST REPAINT - PLX Optimus Prime (Armada). Just too similar to the original.

    Super
    BEST ORIGINAL - Unicron. Primus is close, but I don't like the restrictions on the articulation and the need for the Omega Lock to transform it.
    BEST REPAINT - Pass
    WORST ORIGINAL - Supreme Starscream isn't a terrible figure on it's own, but doesn't stand up well against the rest of this class.
    WORST REPAINT - Energon Gothicron

    Gimmick
    BEST - Energon weapons. Versatile and added a neat hand-to-hand combat angle. I liked them enough to spend the money purchasing a few of the 'exclusive' weapons and duplicates of multiple Energon Basics.
    WORST - Planet Keys. With Minicons, one could trigger the larger figure's gimmick and then remove the partner for an extra toy to play with. The Planet Keys are completely useless except for triggering gimmicks and often get in the way of the figure's articulation. I keep one or two Planet Keys on my desk for triggering gimmicks when I rearrange my displays, and four in the Omega Lock, but the rest sit in a box in storage.

    Best Minicon team- E./Cyb Perceptor- I love minicons that attach to eachother, and a minicon gestalt made me oh so happy.
    Worst Minicon team- Arm/Cyb Emergency Team. Sure, the guy who turned into a gun was cool, but he looked so awful in robot mode, and none of them had spectacular vehicle modes.

    Best Scout/Basic figure- Cyb Scattorshot , a nice transformation and kickass robot
    Worst Scout/Basic figure- Cyb Overhaul/Brushguard what a pain to transform. not posable as a robot and the vehicle mode was just a brick on wheels.

    Best Deluxe figure- Cybertron Downshift A great realistic vehicle mode and a good traditional robot mode made me very happy
    Worst Deluxe figure- Cybertron Runamuk/ Arm. Sideswipe. Even the cool alternate mode doesn't make up for the ugmo robot.

    Best Mega/Voyager figure- Cyb. Soundwave. It was cool seeing a reissue of an important character, and the fact that he turned into a sweet jet/spaceship while still retaining a great robot mode was nice.
    Worst Mega/Voyage-Cyb. LeoBreaker/Nemisis Honestly, they could have just made him a deluxe without a voicebox and he would have still looked great attached to OP or Galv. Instead they made him an expensive figure that look ugly on his own.

    Best Ultra- E/Cyb Scorpanok just sweetness, nothing else to say really
    Worst Ultra- Cyb Menasor. Too simplistic to justify it's cost.

    Best Leader- Cybertron Galvatron. Megatron had silly colours but an awesome mold, this fixed that problem.
    Worst Leader- E prime. The pseudo-gestalt mode thing was cool for a while, but past that hes not so cool.

    Best Supreme- Primus , I dont know how somone could rank anyone higher than him really.
    Worst Supreme- Cyb. Starscream. I love Starscream, but I wish i just waited for the masterpiece SS, and maybe bought this as the voyager size other places were getting. It's just a normal figure at an inflated size/cost

    Best gimmick- Cybertron Keys
    Worst gimmick- those silly energon stars, they looked ridiculous and got lost/ misplaced WAY to easy. The weapons were okay though.

    Best Minicon team - Armada Air Millitary Team - Very cool jets, melee weapon modes, very solid team.
    Worst Minicon team - Cybertron Perceptor Team repaints - I buy any Minicons I get my hands on... I couldn't bring myself to buy these.

    Best Scout/Basic figure - Energon Divebomb - Still love his transformation and appearance. Cant beat a lightnning bolt shaped weapon.
    Worst Scout/Basic figure - Cybertron Backstop - It's been said plenty of times, no need repeating it

    Best Deluxe figure - Cybertron Sideways - Great detail and transformation, unique appearance in both modes and very articulate.
    Worst Deluxe figure - Armada Sideswipe - See above, but opposite.

    Best Mega/Voyager figure - Cybertron Vector Prime - More precisely, the Galaxy Force version. Well painted and beautifully sculpted.
    Worst Mega/Voyage - Energon Alpha Quintesson - Good concept, badly executed. Low play value and accuracy to the cartoon model.

    Best Ultra - Cybertron Jetfire - I like a lot of the Ultras, but with a very clean jet mode and good design, I cant help but like this one.
    Worst Ultra - Armada Powerlinx Jetfire - Not much changed and not interesting in the least.

    Best Leader - Cybertron Optimus Prime - A very cool but not overkill super mode, lots of little gimmicks and touches that made it a great figure.
    Worst Leader - Armada Optimus Prime, Energon repaint - The mold suffered a lot from the expensive gimmick, and the Armada repaint was bad enough... but the bright yellow and dark red version done in Armada was hideous on top of that.

    Best Supreme - Cybertron Primus - Long overdue to get Cybertron as a toy and worth the wait, insane ammount of detail, lots of gimmicks and articulation, all around fantastic figure.
    Worst Supreme - Energon Unicron - The first Unicron was great... this was a tradgety. The original was so overproduced they still released the original colors by the time it was into the Energon series and they still did this horrible lookign thing.

    Best Gimmick - Planet Keys - A big variety of tricks and very few figures suffered for their gimmicks, unlike Armada and Energon where most lost a lot.
    Worst Gimmick - Energon Powerlinking - Most combinations were massive bricks who didn't look good at all and the gimmick took a lot away from the individual toys.

    Best gimmick - Energon weapons. I liked minicons as figures, but not as a gimmick

    There's a lot that I liked that didn't get a mention, that were edged out by better competition, which is a compliment really. Honestly, I don't think there was an Energon Decepticon that I didn't like, while I passed on most of Armada and a little over half of Cybertron.

    Cybertron Thunderblast was a deluxe figure not a basic. Looks like the "toilet mode" didn't save Shortround after all. Maybe Lugnutz could take Thunderblast's and Shortround's place.

    Wow, so no votes for Override/Nitro Convoy as worst deluxe yet? The Sideswipe mold will at least stand.

    (I'd make my own complete list, but I missed Armada and most of Energon, so I don't know if I'm qualified. I definitely like Cybertron Runamuck better than Override though.)

    Override and GTS were both spared from being on my list due to Thundercrackers crappyness. I'm also basing my lists (Rather sensibly) on figures I either have or know enough about firsthand, since I don't have any of the Sideswipe modes or have actually seen both modes in person and what the figure can and cannot do, I haven't listed it for those reasons, as I felt it wouldn't have been fair.
