    I like Cybertron. Although if I was allowed to vote for three, then Movieverse and TFP would be next in line. Weeee!

    G1 and G2 shouldn't be lumped together
    Beast Wars and Beast Machines shouldn't be lumped together
    Technically there's no Machine Wars category
    There is no WFC category

    Prime shouldn't be on here because we have yet to really see their designs. Everything we've seen is not finished product.

    My favourite designs would have to be G1 and Animated. G1 set the blueprint for what would follow, and I thought Animated changed the aesthetic in an interesting way.

    If G1 all looked like Classics, I'd say G1. But they don't. There was some goofy retarded stuff in there as well as everything that was cool.

    If Movieverse all looked like Sideswipe and Optimus. But they don't. For every cool design they come up with, they have to throw in a bike sister or a twin or something.

    I'd probably go with WFC and TFA. TFA had some goofy stuff too, but I liked their sense of humour. WFC had some clunky stuff, but I can overlook it.

    The majority of everything from Beast Wars through Unicron trilogy looked awful to me.

    Linking visual designs by story continuities doesn't really work, as 'connected' stories can have vastly divergent visual styles. (Beast Wars and Beast Machines being the standout examples)

    I don't know if I'd call TF:Animated the best, but it really got me thinking more about visual design with regard to Transformers, in ways no series with the possible exception of Beast Machines has.

    For me, G1 has the best designs, with the movies a close second because of its inventiveness.

    IMO the continuity that's had the best designs so far is one that isn't on that list...and that's Classics.

    The Movies would probably have been up there, save for the fact that, as has been mentioned, for every great design there's a pretty poor one or two.

    Although I will say Prime has potential - it easily has what IMO is the best Cliffjumper EVER :D  - it's still too early to for me to gave a concrete opinion.

    I like and dislike certain designs from each series although overall the designs I like the best are probably Classics. Some great implementing of G1 styles in a more modern style

    I can only pic one!?

    Ack, I can't choose!

    Also, Beast Wars/Machines should be seperate, since there's a huge stylistic difference between the two.

    Animated's designs are the best in my book. So streamlined, dynamic and full of character.

    The Beast wars designs are still my favourite. Most of the characters looked great and were very unique.
