    Every once in awhile I find a toy who's transformation just surprises me, and is just extremely satisfying. Didn't really expect much for the Prime line, but boy was I wrong. I absolutely love Wheeljack. The leg transformation is brilliant, and the figure looks great overall. Wish they would have done a little more on the arms with the windshield, but still, pretty great. Anyone else have a transformer that just surprised them so greatly?

    Energon Megatron. Simple yes but they way it flows from one mode to the other is a thing of beauty to me.

    Heh yep. I've always loved how his legs & feet came out, even if mine got a good amount of play when I was a kid. Along with that, I'm gonna have to plug G1 Blitzwing & Bonecrusher. I had em both since I was a kid, and they were both very unique, but with simply transformations that really lended themselves to bed time play. Same with Mixmaster.

    Then when we get into newer & more engineering based stuff, the original BW Megatron has always impressed me because of how well it goes into each mode & hides up perfectly as the dino... and then RTS Jazz for not only being so fluent, but also because so much of him mirrors the G1 toy.

    So far, Prime Optimus Prime, Wheeljack and Cliffjumper...I was immensely pleased with how fun and satisfying the transformations were. Only Generations figures have come close or equal to the kind of enjoyment I've had with the Prime toys. Looking forward to the rest of the line!

    Right now its Generations Warpath with its simple yet clever transformation scheme, especially with some neat steps (the head reveal is just cool), making him one of the better tankformers out there. Plus isn't he just a little adorable chap? :lolol

    There's a ton of those that are like that for me. The two recent examples that I've gotten the last two months are First Editions Cliffjumper and Bulkhead. GOD I love these guys! Prime Cyberverse Legion Cliffjumper is also really nice.

    Most G1 or any figure i can transform with one hand or without looking at.
    i sometimes use figures like that to keep calm at doctor's clinics, or while in lobbies and having to wait for long periods. i can palm one and still fiddle with it.
    don't have to draw attention to myself.

    i like that.

    the newer ones that are satisfying are for when i am at home, bored and trying not to eat/drink too much.
    RTS/Animated Lugnut
    RiD Scourge
    Classics Seekers
    most scout and legends figures.

    When I read the title, Prime Wheeljack was the first toy that came to mind :) .

    Generations Warpath is another, as is Classics Voyager Megatron.
