    Showoff. :p 

    Nice pics btw. My faves are Bumblebee, Starscream, and Hot Rod so far. I'd love Megatron if it's in G1 colors. Looking forward to Grimlock (my brother's getting Jetfire that lucky bastard).

    It's currently Bumblebee, but it should switch to Jetfire after I get him. Peace out.

    like others said, really nice job on the photos!

    as for your question, i am leaning twoards prime, not jsut because he is my fav. character, but they did a really good job capturing the essence of G1, while updating him at the same time. he also has great articulation. paint apps are ok but a little heavy on the yellow. i give him a 9/10. perfect 10 if hasbro releases a trailer /w roller.

    bumblebee is a VERY close runner up. he just seems like the ideal version, even though he isnt a volkswagen. bot mode is awesome.

    i think jetfire will be my 3rd fav. just because its been so long since we have seen anything CLOSE to a G1 (toon) accurate design, if ever.

    megatron is cool too, when he gets repainted. :thumb

    Personally Prime is at the top of my list, I like all of them pretty well, except meg's gun formers just never did it for me and all that kibble, jetfire looks damn cool though.

    I would have chosen Jetfire (despite not owning him) but his oversized helmet costed him some brownie points...for me the pick of the bunch is Optimus.

    Right now it's a tie between Bumblebee and Jetfire, but that should change after I get Grimlock.

    Mirage looks so much better in that picture.

    In retrospect, Astrotrain looks like shit.

    As for my favorite, definitely Optimus.

    Don't have Jetfire, Grims, or Mirage yet. Of the ones I own, Prime's the best. From pics, Jetfire could easily challenge for top pick.

    I only have the first six, but Megatron is still by far my fav. Hopefully I can find the latest three soon:(

    What? No Starscream Classics lovin' in here? :) 

    For me: Prime, then Starscream, then Grims, Mirage, Megs (I'd have to repaint him), Bumble/Cliffy (either is fine). The rest follow pretty equally.

    I'm not that sold on Classics Jetfire...

    I have almost everything. I only want the prime/megs 2 pack, but out of the all the classics I have, jetfire is by far my favorite. Followed by optimus, an on opitmus' heels is grimlock.

    but really, on a whole this line is just the greatest in a long time.

    I've just gotten the first 6 as well as teh Megs and Prime two pack, but out of those, my favorites are Hot Rod, Bumblebee and Starscream, with starscream probably being my overall favorite, looks as close to the cartoon model as I've seen of any of his toys. I think though once I get Jetfire, Ramjet and Skywarp, I'll be loving all of them.

    Don't have the latest three yet.... but of the first wave, I'd say for me it's a tie between Megatron and Bumblebee. Maybe it's just because (to me) they are undisputably the best version of those characters EVER. Whereas there are already some cool Primes and Starscreams and pseudo-Rodimi out there.

    I personally love Astrotrain... though I still wish he turned into an old steam locomotive rather than a bullet train. And though I like him in white, seeing people's cartoon-accurate repaints make me lament what could have been.

    Starscream gets knocked down a few pegs because of his giant ugly missiles and the fact that his semi-transparent silver plastic feels "unfinished". I would've like if they had at least painted his face dark grey.

    Can't wait to get the new wave to compare! Grimlock looks like he'll be my least favorite, but Jetfire and Mirage look greeeeeeeeat!

    I have the first 6 only, so out of them Astrotrain is my favorite. It'll probably change to Mirage once I get the rest of them. I just love how he looks, and hopefully it'll only be better in person.
