    Optimus Prime's Leader Class mold - Possibly one of the best Prime toys as it is
    Galvatron - Amazing looking figure
    Those were really the only two I had.

    In no particular order;

    Primus
    Leader Class Prime
    Scourge
    Galaxy Force Starscream
    Evac
    Hot Shot
    Cyb Def Red Alert
    Cyb Def Scattorshot
    Cyb Def Hot SHot
    Landfill
    Wing Saber
    Downshift
    Sideways
    Vector Prime
    Hardtop

    Oh wait . . . you wanted top ten? Lol.

    Of the three lines that made up the Unicron trilogy Cybertron was the strongest line with the most number of great molds. And the Cybertron gimmick with the Cyber keys was the least intrusive gimmick too.

    Sideways: It manages to walk that fine, fine line between looking alien and still looking like a vehicle. Plus very posable and great looking.

    Armorhide: Just an awesome, awesome little Scout. He has one of the best uses of the Cyberkey gimmick, completely unobtrusive and it enhances the figure. He even has storage for it!

    ... okay, I'm getting bored and may finish this later.

    For me (in no particular order):

    Evac
    Downshift
    Armorhide
    Starscream
    Vector Prime
    Snarl
    Landmine
    Primus
    CD Scattershot
    Hot Shot (regular, not CD)

    I'm surprised to see Wing Saber show up on some lists, I've always found that mold to be a clunky, irritating mess.

    It's the only one I have so far, but do not skip out of Sideways/ Noisemaze.

    Noisemaze (and his redecos)
    Voyager Starscream (and his redecos)
    Leader Optimus Prime
    Primus (and his redecos)
    Dark Crumplezone
    Dirt Boss
    Hot Shot (and his redecos)
    Scrapmetal (and his redecos)
    Vector Prime (and his redecos)
    Scourge (and his redeco)

    Which makes 10. Cybertron Defense Hot Shot/Exigeyser is just shy of the cut, though I could replace Scourge with it rather easily, depends on my mood and what you're basing it on.

    Oh that's very difficult. Leader Optimus is amazing and so is Primus. I really like Hot Shot's mold but I have the Hasbro Excellion. Soundwave's cool and so is Sideways. I can go for hours orgasming about the Cybertron toyline.

    For Cybertron molds, not repaints or repaints from Armada/Energon, I would say:

    Leader Class Optimus Prime
    Deluxe Hot Shot
    Ultra Leobreaker - Some added articulation would help make it better.
    Ultra Scourge - Great looking mold, but really suffers with arm articulation. This one had potential.
    Voyager Mudflap
    Voyager Soundwave
    Voyager & Supreme Starscream
    Supreme Class Metroplex

    I didn't own them all so I can't say if they were good or not. I'm just listing the best ones that I owned.

    I'd like him a lot more if it wasn't for the inward-bending knees/legs.

    Didn't care much for it. The Transformation was too fiddley, neither mode as all that strong and if I had to use one word to describe it, it would be "restricted".

    Thanks again for the input. I have only owned the Armorhide mold (Botcon Huffer) and the Sideways mold (Sideways, Botcon Scourge & the Sweeps, Universe 2.0 Ratbat) and absolutely love those figures. And sorta been wondering if there were other figures I should check out. Especially if they could fit in with my Classics collection.
