    I like Grimlock, and Cliffy. The Seeker mold isnt bad either. I have messed around with a few others (Megs, Bulkhead, ratchet), and my opinion on them is outside of the characters who only have an activator, get figures of characters that you like. None are great IMO, but none are that bad. Except Ratchet, he is worthless.

    I'll rank the ones I have:

    Thundercracker
    Dirge
    Cliffjumper
    Bumblebee
    Ratchet

    And it's not like I feel Ratchet is bad. I just like the other two molds better.

    Cliffjumper by a landslide.

    BB is good, too, but suffers from insufficient chin.

    The jets are pretty solid.

    Grimlock is decent, but his bot mode arms are too long.

    OP and Megs are both great in bot mode, but pretty crappy in vehicle mode.

    Soundwave looks pretty promising.

    I'm not understanding the Ratchet hate. I'd say he ranks #2 behind CJ. The vehicle mode roof doesn't line up perfectly, but he looks great otherwise. Bot mode is really good, too.

    I'm partial to Bulkhead. He's just so rotund and cute, and fun to roll around. And good for distracting little nieces and nephews. :)

    To me he looks like one of those fat guys who's gut hangs over his belt. Not much they could do with such a simple toy, but that part of him just looks odd. Also when transforming him to vehicle, the shoulderpads that form the front of the roof don't line up really well unless you mess with him (atleast on the two I am stuck with). Just don't think he is worth damn near the purchase price of a deluxe (unless you got him in the Target pack with a voyager for $5).

    I like Prime a lot. Megatron would've been perfect if he had his cannon on his right arm. Bulkhead's my least favorite of the ones I own, but he's adorable in his own clunky way (why I still bought him and not, say, Lockdown). The seeker mold is pretty slick too.

    I think Soundwave would be cool. I like Prime and Megs bot mode unfortunately the alt mode suffers alot from the gimmick. Bee is nice but looks too fat. Oh, I do like Grimlock except for those hands
