    it's hard to say, as they're all so SICK! but I think my favorite is probably Ironhide. he's got a killer head sculpt, massive guns, and has a slight G1 aesthetic to him. but i must say, Brawl and Blackout are tied for second in my books.

    TALLY
    Blackout - 15
    Prime - 9
    Barricade - 6
    Ironhide - 6
    Jazz - 4
    Bumblebee - 3
    Megatron - 3
    Wreckage - 2
    Starscream - 1
    Frenzy - 1
    Brawl - 1
    Bonecrusher - 1
    Long View - 1

    BEFORE YOU CRAP ALL OVER THIS THREAD:
    i only want answers to this question, no complaints about how ugly they are or how much you hate them. i dont want to hear that shit. take it somewhere else. i actually really want to know who everyone's favs are.

    It's a 3 way tie between Bumblebee, Prime, and Ironhide.
    Bumblebee for both his alternate modes as well as his basic design.
    Prime, well for his alternate mode as well as his imposing figure.
    Ironhide for the simple fact of he's a bigass truck and the fact of he's a pretty gruff lookin guy.

    I think it would be a three-way tie between Ironhide, Jazz and Blackout. All for different reasons.

    With Ironhide, you've got just a big honkin' robot that looks ready to rip anything you've got in half and has a beast-machiney headsculpt that manages to convey the above on its own, In Jazz you've got the G1 throwback with the movie aesthetic, and Blackout is the best version of Sounwave we've had since the original.

    I'm not very keen on any of the designs, but I like Blackout. I think its because he isn't really representing a well-established character, so my personal biases don't come into play as much.

    Prime's head really annoys me, as it seems to evoke an almost dopey expression that is just driving me nuts. I really want to like him, but his head just looks so irksome to me. I have similar problems with Bumblebee. I guess when it comes down to it, I just don't find many of the designs aesthetically pleasing.

    This is tough, since the only design I really don't like is Frenzy. I guess I'd have to pick Ironhide, as the alt mode looks great, the robot mode is imposing and I love the heavy weaponry.

    To break it down by categories...
    - Best Autobot - Ironhide
    - Best Decepticon - Starscream (earth-mode, not protoform)
    - Best Head Design - Megatron
    - Best New Character - Barricade and Blackout (tie)

    Megs all the way.
    His hand design is unique, his general appearance screams "do not mess with me".

    In order of my liking them:

    BLACKOUT
    IRONHIDE
    BUMBLEBEE
    BARRICADE
    RATCHET
    MEGATRON (curse me forever, but I reckon he's great)
    BRAWL
    JAZZ (really need to see more of this one!)
    STARSCREAM
    OPTIMUS
    FRENZY

    The fuzzy image of BONECRUSHER I saw didn't really tell me enough to judge.

    Given the limited exposure we've had (some only as toys), my list may be totally revised after I see the movie. OPTIMUS is so low down my list because, well, he's OPTIMUS and the movie design is pretty consistent with his lineage. I like the ones that take a few more risks with their 'source'.

    I admit FRENZY is whacky, but still think he'll work within the context of what he does and has for an alt. mode in the film (and that's my opinion of all the fil designs, really)

    I hate em all!!!! lol Just kidding . Hands Down my favorite is Bumble bee I think they went 100% the right direction with him and I think he has the best head sculpt of them all with maybe an exception being blackout as his head sculpt is pretty cool to.

    after that I think barricade is a crazy kickbut design I just love the arms and in the trailer you can see alot of the car he is in the arms which is always cool
