    I would like to know what people think and which Optimus Prime they like and why? As for me don't get me wrong I love G1 Optimus Prime and I grew up getting to know him as a character, and I can speak for most of the members here that I am sure theirs quite a few that like G1 Optimus Prime and I was saddened by his death, but now ever since Transformers Prime started, I am starting to like this version of Optimus Prime better and I like how they developed him as a character and he's not quite the same as his counterparts. And ever since the Orion Pax saga Optimus became more of a mentor and a role model for the rest of his crew. What do you guys think?

    Optimus Prime only, Animated Optimus Prime for sure.

    I can relate with him unlike the other never can do no wrong Optimus Prime versions. He wasn't perfect, he did screw up at times, and a crew that sometimes would question his orders.

    Being perfect does not make a real leader, having to over come both outside and personal factors is what makes a true leader. That version is the only Optimus Prime character that I have respect for.

    Hooray!

    So, my favorite version of Optimus is Optimus Primal. He isn't the supreme commander, his team was forced into a "war" that turned out to be far more important than they could've imagined, and they made a point that he genuinely cared about his team, while at the same time making it clear he doesn't tolerate disobeying of his orders.

    Optimus Primal.
    He didn't have all the answers and a lot of the time he was just dealing with the situation that was presented, but I doubt many others could have handled the situation the way primal did.

    Movie Optimus.

    I adore his design, I like his plethora of weapons for every occasion, his determination against the odds, I love that Peterbilt vehicle mode and his impressive resolve in protecting humanity from the Decepticons.

    He's a pretty cool guy :lol

    Movie Optimus!!!:D , there are A lot of reasons why he is my Favorite! for one!:D 

    Because He cares for the well being of his friends, Cybertronian and Humans alike,
    And will do anything to save them even give his Life for Them,

    He Always Does What is Right and Stands for Freedom,
    and He is Willing to Make the Hard decisions no Matter the Cost, and get stuff done,

    and because, even though it would be nice to save cybertron his home what is home really?

    isn't home a place where your with the ones you care about and that care about you?
    so to him Earth is Home, and He Fights with all he's got to Protect what Home he has!

    and G1 Optimus I See G1 And Movie Optimus as the same accept you get to see G1 Optimus in different Situations :D

    Movie Optimus, followed by TFP Optimus.

    Both of them follow through with the original theme song: "Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons."

    While I LOVE Optimus Primal as well, I don't consider him of the "Optimus" archetype.

    EDIT:
    Pretty much for those reasons.

    Animated, because it was like seeing Steve Rodgers become Captain America, in a way, Primal, because he is just a great character, and RID, because he reminds of Brave and the Bold (TV) Batman.

    Design-wise, My favorite is Generation 1 Optimus Prime. He's the heroic thirty-foot-tall transforming alien robot with a voice that can make even SUVs quake.
    Character-wise, I'd have to go with Optimus Prime from Transformers Animated He's the everyman who's just... doing his job. It wasn't his plan to get caught up in Megatron's scheme, nor was he the supreme leader of the Autobots, just his small group that was in charge of maintaining the spacebridge.

    Tie between Animated Prime and BW Primal. Both of them had a decent amount of character depth and weren't the same bland leader type.
