    I want us to figure out what is the greatest transformer ever produced based on a specific criteria. Hasbro/Takara only. No customs. Not who your favorite is. Not based on who the character is. The criteria being:

    Appearance in robot mode
    Appearance in alternate mode(s)
    Transformation
    Quality of materials used (plastic/diecast/chrome)
    Articulation
    Attention to detail/paint applications
    Poseability
    Stability
    Accessories
    Overall playability
    If you need a scale, lets use a range of 1-10 with 10 being the highest

    Whatcha' ya got? and explain why......

    "Articulation" and "attention to detail/paint applications" do not mean the same thing.

    I'm stuck between RiD Scourge/Black Convoy and Animated Leader Utra Magnus. Both are pretty show accurate and they're pretty cool for transformers. Scourge's tanker was just amazing as a kid.

    heh, I would vote for g1 kup:
    1. show accurate for both modes.
    2. Transformation is simple, yet still fun.
    3. Diecast + rubber wheels(early version)
    4. Poseability is quite good for a g1 toy
    5. Very durable, unlike some other g1 toys.
    6. Only 1 accessory, i prefer transformers with less accessories(easier to complete too), the fun goes mostly with the toy itself. GIJoes however, is a different story.
    7. Not my favorite character, but definitely a fun toy, very cheap for a g1 too.
    I would rate it 9/10

    I said this before but... Drift of course!! A 3 sword wielding Gundam/Transformer hybrid samurai is nothing but awesome...

    You listening to this Tak/Tom

    If not, I guess I have to settle for the G2 Laser Prime mold. It's loads of fun that never gets old.

    I vote for that one that turns into a robot!


    (I don't see this thread going well, what with the attempt to apply objective rating to a fundamentally subjective ... subject. )

    Masterpiece Prime and ROTF Leader Prime.

    I know, I know..I'm currently in the ROTF hype, but I really think that figure is badass. My only complaint would be it's all plastic and the sword gimmicks are in the way, but I can live with that.

    the greatest transformer of all is still in the future.

    it works like a gravity bot but has rotf leader prime details, with Binaltech interiors and Masterpiece finish.

    and at that time, 5 year olds will laugh at us for transforming our toys with bare hands.

    'you had to do all that?' they will say...
