    There are numerous threads asking for your favorite mold or toy or whatever from whichever class. Though I find it difficult to pick only one. So if people could put up with yet another one of these threads and take the time to review and pick their top three from each series I would greatly appreciate it.

    If you do not own a mold from a series then skip it or if you want one because you suspect it will be great then state so.

    Classes are:
    G1
    Beastwars
    Beastmachines
    RID
    Armada
    Energon
    Cybertron
    Classics
    Animated
    Liveaction Movie
    Universe/henkei
    Masterpiece
    Alternators
    Botcon
    MISC

    For me =
    G1 -
    Optimus Prime - is a classic
    Sky Linx - playability
    Metroplex - love his design

    Beastwars -
    Transmetal Optimus Prime - great mold
    Transmetal Megatron -
    Transmetal tarans

    Beast Machines - I don't have any and don't seem to like any of the figures

    RID -
    Omega Prime - the merged duo is excellent
    Rail Racer - Great Gestalt
    Nemesis Prime - Fantastic mold, Chromed trailer rocks!

    Armada -
    Unicron - he's an entire Planet!
    Not sure of any other figures in this line

    Energon -
    Classics Devastator - great gestalt
    Bruticus Maximus - great gestalt

    Cybertron -
    Optimus Prime
    Primus

    Classics -
    Jetfire
    Seekers
    Optimus Prime

    Universe -
    Onslaught
    Inferno
    Sideswipe

    Animated -
    Leader Megatron
    Voyager Optimus Prime
    Shockwave

    LIVE ACTION -
    ROTF Leader Prime
    Deluxe BB
    Deluxe Sideswipe

    Masterpiece
    Optimus Prime
    Starscream
    that's all I have

    Alternators
    Rollbar
    Walmart exclusive ravage
    Wheeljack - so few good wheeljacks out there

    Botcon
    Deluxe Thrust
    broken glass Starscream
    Alpha Trion

    Uh, lets see here...I don't have a wide variety here, uh...

    G1 : Bumblebee, Windcharger, and Cliffjumper.

    07 Movie : Thundercracker, Cliffjumper, Ratchet (Rescue)

    09 Movie : Leader Optimus Prime, Mixmaster, Skids

    Can we add Classics/Universe to the mix? If so, my favs are Sunstreaker, Acid Storm, and Prowl. If not, then just ignore that.

    G1
    -Optimus- The one who started it all
    -Omega Supreme- Never had Fort Max, but this thing was huge enough as a kid.
    -Prowl- Just my favorite G1 figure, it is in bits and pieces, but I just can't part with it.

    Beastwars
    -No interest in animals

    Beastmachines
    -Same as previous

    RID
    Armada
    Energon
    Cybertron
    -Don't like any of these series

    Animated
    -Leader Magnus
    -Voyager Grimmy- Even with goofy hands
    -Leader Bulkhead

    Liveaction Movie
    -ROTF Prime
    -HA Bumblebee
    -Ice Cream Truck- Not a big fan of the bot modes, but I find the toy entertaining as hell at the moment.

    Masterpiece
    -Grimmy- 100% Awesome
    -Prime-He's Prime
    -Walmart Starscream- Tak Skywarp is close behind, and has more of the look of an adult collectible. Far behind is Thundercracker just because of his "Banana Tits". I didn't think it would bug me, but that misassembled part is goofy as hell.

    Alternators
    -Prowl- Just a Prowl nerd
    -Hound- Great representation of the character
    -Jazz- Same reasons as Hound

    Classics-
    -Magnus with Armor- picked up Shaddow yesterday and had to bust em both out. That Magnus is just a piece of art.
    -Cyclonus- Great mold, cant wait for a real classic Scorge and Sweeps to go with him (hopefully).
    -Red Alert/Sun Streaker/Sideswipe mold- Just a great all around mold. Cant wait for Punch/Counterpunch

    Botcon
    -Have none, but someday will own the GoD set, and a couple from 2008. Finally saw the 2009 set yesterday, and it looks like an even bigger turd in person.

    G1 - (based on my limited personal collection) Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Seekers (specifically Dirge since thats the one I have)

    Beast Wars - Tigerhawk, TM2 Megatron, Optimal Optimus (the end of the series was just too awesome not to love for Beast Fans)

    Beast Machines -Megatron (despite the overwhelming dislike of him for some reason), Mega-Tankor (again why the hate?), and Megabolt Megatron (even if he was WAY late)

    Robots In Disguise - Fire Convoy, God Magnus, Gigatron (what I usually refer to them as)

    Armada - Unicron (duh), "Bendy" Optimus Prime, Tidalwave (anyone got one for sale? PM me)

    Energon - "Liptimus" Prime (again, anyone got one for sale? I miss mine), Starscream, Mirage

    Cybertron - Megatron, Galaxy Convoy, Primus (Vector Prime is just barely not there)

    Animated - Shockwave was the onyl one I cared enough for to really warrant a purchase I have a couple more but dont care for them. Though Magnus looks badass.

    Movie - Blackout, Ironhide, Wreckage

    ROTF - Optimus Prime, Ravage, Soundwave

    Masterpiece - 20th Anniversary Prime, Starscream (only ones I have)

    Alternators - had several only one I really like is the first Ravage (Tracks remold) and its the only one I still have.

    Botcon - only have two: Shokaract (MIB) and Sentinel Maximus

    Japanese BW got no love in the sections though...BW2 Galvatron and BWNeo Big Convoy are pure win as well.
