    The wolf is my favorite. A canine's head with a snake's tongue (in other shots), a shell and a mace tail make it the most varied of them all. And for some reason, 4-legged creatures look more evil than the bi-peds.

    EDITED TO ADD: If it helps you to make your decision, imagine all the Transorganics were the size of the dweller.

    AFTERMATH THOUGHTS:
    Ape, bear, and camera would all place 2nd.

    Bird is third because I believe it could take out any bird-former (cassettes, Wingspan, Divebomb, etc. Even Sky apart from the Lynx is too big a target. You saw the Transorgan puncture a sweep.

    Dweller would be next as a harmful earthworm.

    Whitesnake is much better off as a band. It was just too plain here.

    Well, only white snake was cool enough that a band named themselves after it, so I'll have to vote for that one.

    A respectable reason- I almost typed that white snake into one word - and yes, the band was part of the 80's as well.

    Funny thing, if the transorganics were the oldest creations of the Quentessons, yet the were part beast, like living mammals that required food, how could they survive 4 million + years after Ops and Megs launched for planet Earth?
    I don't think any living being could just hibernate for 4 million years + 1984 to 2005/6.

    Also, you'd think the dweller would've torn Shockwave and the rest of Cybertron in the meantime until the volcano encasing the Ark erupted.

    I voted for the dwellers of the depths as he was the strongest of all of them.

    I wondered what the purpose of sticking the vampirized robots into his backpack. What would he do with them?

    Also, when the flesh of the transorganics disappeared, does that mean he killed them from some means? He didn't eat them, but at 12 years old back in '86, it would've been a creepy thing kinda.

    I wonder if storywriter Paul Dini created those Transorganics or if the Japanese over at Toei Animation were given creative freedom.

    Cyber-bear pretty much tops everything.

    Wait, Paul Dini?

    I voted for the dweller but then when I read the posts I almost want to vote for White Snake because the hilarious reasoning. But they look weird and cool all of them.

    I went with the Dweller, very horrid and unsettling. The white snake, to me, doesn't show any organic elements at all. It just looks like a robot.

    Oh, Funky Munky, phallic means:

    1. Of, relating to, or resembling a phallus.
    2. Of or relating to the cult of the phallus as an embodiment of generative power: phallic worship.
    3. Of or relating to the third stage of psychosexual development in psychoanalytic theory, from about ages three to six, during which gratification is focused on sensations associated with the genital organs. The phallic stage is preceded by the anal stage and followed by the latency period.

    Phallus being:

    1. Anatomy
    a. The penis.
    b. The sexually undifferentiated tissue in an embryo that becomes the penis or clitoris.
    2. A representation of the penis and testes as an embodiment of generative power.
    3. The immature penis considered in psychoanalysis as the libidinal object of infantile sexuality in the male.
