    well, for some reason I'm a sucker for the armada seeker mold, so I'd pick my favorite color scheme from those, which always defaults to starscream, then:

    2. cybertron prime
    3. primus
    4. sharticon
    5. slugslinger (mine is nice and tight, unlike just about everyone else's)

    I'd also like to give honorable mention to the towline mold as repainted for botcon. if they were a mainstream release, they'd be on the list for sure.

    Not sure if you wanted 5 from each, but here are mine.

    Armada:
    1. Nemesis Prime: Great mold, great colors.
    2. Wheeljack: Cool idea of the slashed autobot symbol
    3. Megatron: Elements of an insect in his head, plus a great tank mode.
    4. Tidal Wave: "fleet" alt form, reminds me a bit of SDF-1 from Robotech.

    Energon:
    1. Landquake: love the "brute mold" armor. reminds me of ultra magnus with the colors and armor.
    2. Rodimus.
    3. Cruellock: Improved colors, neat little mold. Very poseable, nice sword weapon.
    4. Blight: Again, a tank with elements of an insect. This time in the "wings" as well as the name. Same with the recolor, Kickback.
    5. Mirage: Love the colors and the mold is bizarre.

    Cybertron:
    1. Primus. Exceeded expectations. Improved on Unicron and is one of the few transformers I have never packed up. Still stands proudly on my desk.
    2. Optimus Prime. Best Optimus to date IMO.
    3. Cybertron Defense Scattorshot.
    4. Snarl: Great alt mode....nice colors, a possible homage to Silverbolt. An asymmetrical bot mode makes me happy.
    5. Backstop/Saidos. I know I'm in the minority on this. I like asymmetrical bot modes. Or I guess I just like Rock Lords.

    (This is only of the ones I own, since there are a lot of AEC figures I don't own and thus can't judge)

    Armada: Unicron, Bendy Prime, Bendy Nemesis Prime, Wheeljack, and... uh..... okay, that's actually all the Armada that I own. :p 

    Energon: Galvatron, Scorponok, Shockblast, Landmine, and Superion (yes, Superion is cheating, but I like both of its limb-bots a lot)

    Cybertron: Voyager Starscream, Excellion, Evac, Vector Prime, Armorhide, Downshift, and Landmine (sorry, could only boil it down to seven... I like all these equally)

    Top 5 of all AEC: C. Evac, E. Galvatron, Excellion, Scorponok, and Vector Prime

    I like most of the AEC toys I've gotten sofar.

    Armada
    Deluxe Prime

    Cybertron
    Prime
    Primus (just got him today MISB with Unicron head!)
    Landmine
    Soundwave
    Vanguard First Aid
    Vanguard Scatorshot
    Override
    I know theres more in my collection I like but I don't have them infront of me.

    Only ones I don't like are Metroplex because of his craptacular alt mode and Vector Prime because of blockyness.
