    Translation: colour choice butthurt. Anyway, my picks:

    Best:
    1. Generations Straxus
    2. Battle Blades Bumblebee
    3. Leader Starscream
    4. ROTF Leader Prime
    5. Universe Powerglide
    6. Universe Hound
    7. HFTD Seaspray
    8. Animated Jazz
    9. Crossovers Spidey-Copter
    10. Movie Landmine

    Don't have a top ten worst cuz I don't have that many toys. But if I had to pick a worst, I'd probably go with SWTF Palpatine, and that's only cause his middle-top-wing-whatever-dealie has a busted connection peg.
     
  6. Hot Shot.

    In no particular order. I picked my favorite of a particular mold, but equivalent repaints, etc. can be interchanged.

    BEST
    1. Alternators - Mirage
    2. Animated - Ultra Magnus
    3. Carrobots - God Fire Convoy (Crystal God Magnus & Fire Convoy Merged)
    4. G1 - Jetfire
    5. Henkei - Convoy
    6. Masterpiece - MP-8 Grimlock
    7. Micron Densetsu - Crystal STD Convoy
    8. Micron Densetsu - Shockwave
    9. Superlink - SD-13 Shadowhawk Cosmo Type
    10. Timelines - Darksyde Megatron



    My 'worst' list is based on the gimmicks interfering with the robot/alt modes. Engineering marvels/ideas aside; poor execution damns them all. I picked my most despised of a particular mold, but equivalent repaints, etc. can be interchanged.

    WORST
    • Animated - Jetfire
    • Armada - Sideswipe
    • Energon - Ironhide
    • Energon - Sixshot
    • Energon - Treadbolt
    • G1 - Pretenders (take your pick)
    • G1 - Quickswitch
    • G1 - Runamuck
    • ROTF - Megatron (Leader Class)
    • Timelines - Shattered Glass Ricochet

    Some are wondering why I pick what I did...
    #1: Absolutely no where near the cartoon accurate, and the robot mode was horrid.
    #2: totally horrible bot and alt mode. just plain UUUUGLY. Paint sloppy too.
    #3: Seriously... wtf is this?
    #4: fat arms, penis head, and ugly color in general
    #5: bulky, unplayable toy. Least favorite from my childhood Liked the character, not the toy.
    #6: good doorstop...bad transformer.
    #7: colors horrid. axel cannon a joke.
    #8: Awesome robotech, horrible transformer. didn't fit in with the others.
    #9: flimsy piece of crap, not meant for kids. I broke 4 of 'em, and I was VERY good with toys as a kid.
    #10: colors off, wings too high, and the missiles ruin the figure for a gimmick.

    That's my reasoning

    Hmm I'm bored and on my lunch break, so what the hell:

    Top 10 Best (in no particular order):
    Masterpiece Optimus Prime
    Masterpiece Grimlock
    RiD Rail Racer
    Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy/Black Big Convoy
    Classics Voyager Optimus Prime
    G1 Soundwave
    RotF Leader Optimus Prime/Buster Optimus Prime
    Animated Leader Megatron
    RotF Battle Blade Bumblebee
    Classics Silverstreak

    Top 10 Worst:
    1a. Armada Sideswipe
    1b. Titanium G.I. Joe Megatron

    Those two are in a suckfest to the death to determine which is worst. After that, in no particular order:

    RotF Desert Ruins Brawl (the "Banana Brawl" paint job horribly taints a decent mold)
    RotF Crash Landing Attack Bumblebee (another scary paint job marring a decent mold)
    G1 Brawn/Outback (I can forgive clunky bricks...but the legs make it look weird, and it looks even weirder when compared to the animation model Hasbro went with)
    Movie Voyager Megatron
    Classics Cheetor (updates are supposed to improve on older designs, not make the older version look even better)
    Animated Rescue Ratchet (another paint job that should've been left to the Movieverse)
    RotF Scalpel (I don't know how Hasbro thought the leg design was a good idea)
    Movie Legends Optimus Prime (one smokestack?)

    Best:
    1. Any version of the Classics Prime mold. Just a gorgeous figure. Good transformation.
    2. MP Prime, any flavor. Just a big hunk of awesome.
    3. MP Grimlock. While he isn't as complicated as the other masterpieces, he's just so awesome.
    4. Titanium War Within The Fallen. He's so nice, heavy, and awesome looking. The flames on him go a long way. Even his alt mode is awesome. He's definitely a diamond in the rough when it comes to the Titanium line.
    5. Alternators Shockblast. Just an excellent all around figure. Nice alt mode, excellent bot mode.
    6. Beast Wars Optimal Optimus. One of my favorite BW figures. While he has a few vehicle modes that kind of suck, his bot mode and alt mode are awesome. Big hunk of ass kickery.
    7. RotF Prime. The big one is good, the little one is good, the japanese repaints are good. Just excellent engineering.
    8. Human Alliance Jazz. This guy is simply amazing. The small deluxe scale car becomes about a voyager sized robot, who is beautiful in and of his own.
    9. Animated Cybertronian Optimus Prime (deluxe). His transformation just rocks. He looks good in both modes.
    10. Animated Activators Bumblebee. Love him.

    Worst.
    Gi Joe Megatron titanium. Falls apart. Looks like crap.
    Can't think of any other bad ones at the moment, I'll update later.
