Mine is Jetfire
Coming close 2nd Ravage....
Always No.1 on my list, Optimus Prime!
And No.2 is the awsome Sideswipe! Blades totally kick ass! Eat metal Sideways!
Definitely Sideswipe !
Sideswipe!!! The way he moved, destroyed and his arrogance was just plain sweet...
Soundwave an all-knowing, space-lurching second.
Starscream a sneaky & snivelling third.
Optimus Prime an ass-kicking, bot-decapitating fourth.
I think one of the reasons I liked Sideswipe so much is that you can see how he was almost going to Hot Rod and I've always been a Hot Rod fan... Stick Judd Nelson on vocals and paint him red and that was Hot Rod through and through Just this time he didn't get Optimus Prime killed!
Optimus Prime. 'Nuff said.
Sideswipe is a close second though. Cutting Sideways in half is the picture they should use for the term badass.
It's the first time since Animated, which was the first time since Beast Wars, that Optimus has easily been my favourite character.
Gotta be Jetfire - thought I'd hate him but the cranky old timer suits the character, and the Brit accent is great.
Sideswipe was brill too, though not enough screen time (though that goes for all the bots).
And yeah Ravage was great too...and Prime...and Bumblebee...
My favorite from this movie will be Sideswipe....Optimus Prime will always remain my favorite though. I think he is one of the best designs from this movie. Incorporating many nods to his G1-self, while updating him in a very cool design. Besides Galaxy Force(I didn't even like GF/Cybertron, but I thought Prime looked descent) Prime, He is the best update in years
So far: Jetfire. He's the perfect blend of new-movie style and old-skool G1 history (G1 Jetfire was also an ex-Decepticon who in the show was stuck on Earth a LONG time before the other TF's showed up and turned into an experimental plane. Movie Jetfire is the same, except he's not a repainted Macross, is an old guy, not a scientist, doesn't have a crapload of weapondry, no contriversal gerwalker mode that I know of, has a pimp cane, and turns into an SR-71)
Jetfire, because he is more or less just a robot version of Alan Moore.
And that makes him the best Transformer ever.
Skids and Mudflap, easily.
Optimus, followed by Alice.
Starscream. Because hes so different from his G1 self, but still has both a sinister and cowardly personality. That and hes always been my fav character... hehe.
Jetfire and Megatron
close second would be skids and mudflap (the redneck twins lol)
Prime as he was a real badass
Optimus by a country mile, for sheer bad-assery, a penchant for headshots and combining.
But as so not to overshadow the new characters, Skids & Mudflap get an honourable mention for some great interactions.
Optimus. Starscream. Sideswipe (though he was criminally underused).
ravage was fantastic, real shame he got ripped apart.
starscream was really well done, loads of personality.. not sure whos personality though, certainly not starscreams
Character wise..... jetfire.... nearly p*ssed myself laughing at his attempt to open the hanger door.... and his reaction afterwards.
Design-wise.... Sideswipe and the twins
1. Optimus for taking on 3 of the most powerful Decepticons all at once. Oh and for being a badass ofcourse.
2. Sideswipe and Jetfire. Normally only Sideswipe, but because of him having too little screentime, Jetfire equals him.
