    Sunstreaker, Cyclonus or Tracks (it's hard to choose, really).

    That's a difficult question, but honestly I would lean towards Cyclonus as well. Kup is great to, but he didn't need the update QUITE as badly as Cyclonus. Jazz is almost perfect, but his floppy chest brings him down a notch.

    I can't pick just one, Cyclonus is epic, jazz is fantastic, starscream is such a good update, Mirage always stood out to me as a very impressive peace.

    Starscream for me, although I'm quite fond of Hound, with Cyclonus coming in close third place.

    Truth be told though, the bluestreak mold IS really good if you transform it properly so the doors doesn't allways fall of, but the repaints kind of killed the awesomeness.

    Jazz had the potential to be incredible, but the lack of a locking chest does a lot to detract from it. Funny thing is, I ordered Jazz & Tracks together, and of the two I was looking forward to Jazz a LOT more, while Tracks wasn't exciting me that much. After opening them both, my opinions on both toys quickly swapped around.

    I'm biased, but i love Scourge.


    The Lambo mold is very nicely done really.

    Not too fiddly, not super easy either, robot mode proportions are great.

    Although i always did prefer Sideswipe....

    I recommend it - if you can, try and get the Battle in Space set (you can always sell Rodimus if you don't want him). The Universe version is good, but has a lot of unpainted grey plastic. He's one of those deluxes with a very tall robot mode, and will look very imposing in anyone's collection.

    Agreed on the lambo mold.

    Hound.

    He seems to get overshadowed by his wave-mate Cyclonus, but I honestly think Hound is a much better figure.

    Cyclonus' 'bot mode is fantastic; the best hands down. However, I think the jet, namely the thruster section, leaves something to be desired. The legs and wings don't really snap in securely and the illusion of being twin thrusters is kind of unconvincing, even though they did the best with what they had.

    I think the lambo mold is also all around solid, as well as the seeker mold. The elegance in transformation and sturdiness of the Blurr/Drift mold also impresses me.

    My favorite I suppose is the Seeker mold, but I have to agree with the others - Cyclonus is very well done, especially the Battle In Space version.

    I just got Blurr today and personally I think he's better than Drift - one of the rare cases where a repaint/remould tops the original (it's a combination of the head, the honking huge gun and the varying shades of blue).

    Wreck Gar. QC issues blown out of proportion. I've got stress in one hand but it hasn't failed me yet and the stress isn't getting any bigger. No stress on the shoulders and I've never broken handle bars.

    AMAZING articulation...like an action figure, great alt mode and all the Wreck Gar details are there. I couldn't ask for more from a "Classics" style figure.

    Mine feels absolutely fine. The Matrix is a nice little accessory too.

    The Seeker mold is tops for me. I'm somewhat surprised that Prime hasn't been mentioned yet! Aside from the arm kibble, he's one of the most solid TF's in my collection!

    Same here, I also rate Cyclonus, Hound and Mirage very highly.
    Haven't got Kup, scourge, Wreck Gar etc yet.

    Proving just how good the current Classics updates are, I should have added Wreck-gar to the list. :D  He's awesome, packed with character - the face really looks the part, and the asymmetrical robot mode helps give the impression that he's been somewhat cobbled together, appropriate for a Junkion. Get an order in with Kapow. ;)
