    Just like the title says. Let's figure out what toyline is the favorite of TFW2005.

    I think I got all of the USA mainlines since g1.....please forgive me if I forgot any and if I did, please type it in your post.

    My favorite is the Universe/Classics line......Animated is running a close second.

    What's your favorite and why?

    THANKS for posting/voting.

    I'm going with the Universe/Classics line. I love G1 and I'd never give up my G1 toys, but the Universe/Classics line has given me really good modern representations of all my favorite toys. Cyclonus is a great example. The G1 toy is good, but that Universe toy is incredible - it's an engineering marvel!

    Uni./Classics Fo Sho!

    All (well, most, so far) of the most memorable characters except NOW they are VERY close to their on screen versions but cooler as the alt modes and robot modes have been updated from the 80's asthetic... And the unique transformations are just awesome.

    Honorable Mention: RID... You canmt deny the :bay  that is the Autobot Combiners (a 2, 3, AND 4 combo...) Omega Supreme, Rail Racer, and LandFill (and X-Brawn, which doesnt combine but IS awesome).

    Had to go with G1, though Henkei/Classics is definitely 2nd and probably RID third.

    I had to go with G1. It's what I grew up with, and so that's what I'm interested in. Modern toys that I buy I pretty much only get if they're G1 inspired, like Classics Universe or Alternators.

    (you forgot Alternators in your poll btw)

    G1 without a doubt. Without that line, there would be no others.

    No votes for Animated? :lol

    My vote would've gone to Beast Wars without the Beast Machines, but I'm also happy with Universe/Classics. :)

    Definitely Classics/Universe. Their have only been two original molds that I have not cared for. Their is something to be said about mixing old and new but, to pull it off is something else. The only other line that comes close is RID.

    I apologize for the oversight. If I had the ability to edit the poll I would. Maybe a Moderator could come in and edit it for me? Make the first option G1/G2 and the second option Alternators?<<<<<<<PLEASE?!

    No contest at all for me. Universe/Classics all the way.

    I've got a few Cyberton toys that I liked, I've got a couple of Animated toys that I really like, but none of them have the excitement of tracking down a Universe/Classics figure I don't have.

    It's like they found a magical way to make the toys I always wish they had back when I was a kid. The figures look like they did in the comic books and cartoons while still having loads of articulation and nice transformations. They also tap into the look that I like the best because I like things like Gundams so the Classics/Universe line has the hands and armored look that it just so visually pleasing to me. Not really a fan of the way the Animated hands are made so that's some marks off to keep Classics/Universe ahead even though Animated puts out some good stuff.

    I voted Classics all the way, I wasn't born when the original G1 toys came out, but after watching/owning all of G1 on DVD they became my favorite characters instantly, and Classics has a lot of great toys. I like the idea of this thread, but why no Japanese lines? I know a lot of people probably would have liked to vote for some of the Japanese g1 stuff.

    Classics/Universe because the Classics line is what got me into collecting Transformers.
