    I think many would say Cybertron was the best overall line, that Energon had some good toys too.

    Armada wasn't ALL bad. Tidal Wave is generally well regarded for one.

    Yeah, if you're hankering for AEC, Cybertron is the way to go. Cybertron had lots of fantastic figures. But if you really are just limiting it to those two, Energon over Armada for sure. Although you should still pick up some version of Armada Unicron. :)

    Well, I can't really speak for Energon, but I've picked up a few Armada figures, and I don't regret the purchases... mostly. There's a couple duds in there.

    Cybertron>Energon>Armada in terms of toylines. Most of those Armada toys just look...ugh. But some Cybetron and Energon molds look decent and some are even my favorites, like the Bruticus helicopter/torso mold, and Cybertron Armorhide.

    Energon has some fantastic molds. Mirage, for example.

    Energon is FAR superior to Armada. And most of the best Energon figures are the Decepticons. You have a bunch of Energon Autobots so I'd recommend getting some of the Decepticons.

    I have Energon Prowl and Hot Shot, and although Hot Shot isn't the greatest, I still love him. The main issue is his small arms. Prowl on the other hand is pretty awesome all around! :D

    For me I would choose Cybertron,as they were the best of the trilogy.I honestly don't think I dislike even one figure from that line,they are all awesome.As for your topic I would suggest Energon,sure some of them suck monkey butt tho I think the decepticons had way better designs than the autobots,namely the following.

    Mirage
    Galvatron
    Starscream
    Translucent Tidal Wave
    Shockblast/wave
    Sharkticon

    I guess if I had to pick one I'd say Energon, but honestly, I would pick the better molds from each line. Both lines have some cool figures as well as some crappy ones :2c:

    I'm not going to bother listing Cybertron toys since you seem more interested in Armada and Energon.

    -Armada: I'd suggest Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Megatron, and Unicron.

    -Energon: I'd suggest Scorponok and Landmine.

    Going with this right here. I owned Prowl and Rodimus, two of the benchmark figs according to the community, and they were some of the worst proportioned figures I've ever owned. The gimmick also goes along way to kill the play value and sturdiness of the figs. If these are indicative of the Autobots in general, then I'd avoid that line like the plague.




    Oh, that's right. I already did...
