    I'm still very impressed with the Dropkick/Salvage mold along with the detail of its trasformation and its my favourite toy from the 2007 Movie release, so would consider it one of the best. Whats your favourite and which do you consider to be the best?

    My favourite is Dropkick although 2008 Concept Bumblebee and Wreckage are also very good.

    I agree. Dropkick is all kinds of awesome. I also like the Concept Bumblebee and Wreckage. I really loved all the non-movie bots...

    The Premiums are all pretty cool, but all the main cast will be getting tweaks to the molds for ROTF so wouldn`t go mad hunting for any of the main bots.

    Dropkick was cool, but not my thing.

    The only three I'm keeping are Starscream, Leader Prime, and Ratchet. Ironically, i'm only interested in Starsream and Prime from ROTF.

    Dropkick was probably the best deluxe of the line.
    Voyager I'm rather partial to Ratchet and Starscream.
    Leader is Brawl, easily.

    08 Bumblebee was my favorite, followed by Stockade. I didn't really like any other movie toys though :(

    I liked the Dreadwing/Overcast mold, it had a certain 'crazy, but deadly' look about it. My fave is certainly Landmine, with Wreckage coming a close second.

    Oh yeah, and Deluxe Brawl is poo.

    I really hated the aesthetic of basically all of the actual movie figures, but liked many of the non-movie ones (though not the lens eye ones). Favorites are Wreckage, Dropkick, Longarm, and Stealth or Premium (battle helmet) Bumblebee.

    Wreckage. He's a lot of fun with a great aesthetic.

    Too many to list in my case. :) 

    I'm surprised people are mentionning Dropkick though. Imo, he had the goofiest weapon. I don't even use it.

    Wreckage. It only helps that he's being repainted as Bludgeon.

    Dropkick- Absolutely great. I love that you can arrange the back kibble so that the doors are in the back, and sides of the truck beds as the shoulders.

    Wreckage- Pure awesome. The colors work, the blades are great, and a cool design.

    Insinerator- I love this guy. The alt mode exposes no robot bits, and the gimmick is great. Nice head sculpt too.

    I hated soo many of the toys,and believe a weapon doesn't represent a Transformer on a whole as Dropkick himself was very detailed with its transformation.

    I remember people really digging Starscream and Thundercracker, I got them and was really disappointed :(

    Deluxe Concept Bumblebee was really innovative at the time. It had automorphs that worked well and was really detailed for a deluxe car. There's so many versions of it now that I don't think anyone cares anymore, which is a shame.

    Ironhide is actually a great mold too; I think he's overlooked a lot.

    Many of the "ok" molds (like Jazz and Starscream) were really improved by their alternate repaints, whether they be the Premium versions or the more colorful G1 style repaints (like Thundercracker and Target Jazz).
