    G1 Starscream and Armada Starscream are very different characters, so why shouldn't they be allowed in the same list?

    Same with G1 Megatron and Beast Wars Megatron.

    Best: G1 Starsceam, G1 Sideswipe, G1 Sunstreaker, G1 Megatron, G1 Soundwave.

    Worst: G1 Wheelie, G1 Octane, G1 Galvatron.

    Yeah I know my list is G1, and I know it doesn't have five, but that's all I can think of. Also note I'm excluding Optimus because he would always top everyone.

    Beast Wars is a different issue though.

    Please explain why it's necessary to put limitations on other fans' preferences? While Prime's a personal favorite character, I don't feel he's one of the top 5 best overall. But I would not be able to make this kind of list without including Megatron.

    Top 5 Best:

    1. Marvel G1 Shockwave: Contrary to being Megatron's lackey in the TV series, Marvel Shockwave was awesome: defeated the Autobots, defeated Megatron (twice), and unlike TV Megatron his catchphrase wasn't "Retreat!"

    2. Marvel G1 Ratchet: As I've said many times, Ratchet was the Autobots' unsung hero in the Marvel comics series.

    3. Marvel G1 Blaster: A lame alt-mode, but he rose up as one of the comic series' stand-out characters.

    4. BW Megatron: I loved everything about this characterization of Megatron, even the rubber duckie moments. He was my favorite character of the entire BW series.

    5. TFA Megatron: Corey Burton's performance and getting to see Megatron wreak the kind of havoc that we only wish he would have done in G1 made this my other favorite characterization of Megatron.

    Top 5 Worst:

    1. BW Terrorsaur: that grating voice, the fingers-on-a-chalkboard screech, the Starscream wannabe -- just hated everything about the character.

    2. BM Nightscream: Annoying to the nth degree. Please, Hasbro -- no more TF emo characters!

    3. G1 Wheelie: Mostly for the voice and irritating sing-songy dialog, but I never thought he offered anything of value to the series.

    4. G1 Insane Galvatron (although he was at times amusing).

    5. Pretty much all the human characters in the Unicron Trilogy. And yes, I realize they are human characters, but because they are in the Transformers universe it also makes them Transformers characters.

    Worst:

    Alpha Trion
    Energon Ironhide
    ROTF Scalpel

    Honourable mentions: G1 Bumblebee, Movie Ironhide, Any generic Con thug like G1 Blitzwing, Rattrap (actually a well written character but his voice and buck teeth really annoy me), Quickstrike, G1 Jetfire, Wheeljack, Perceptor, Kup (though his IDW incarnation is growing on me), Animated Soundwave, Animated Constructicons
