    Whirl. he's gone from typical Furman Wrecker Gun Nut, to my Sociopathic Spirit Animal.

    Obvious answers are Whirl, Skids, Cyclonus, Drift, Tailgate, etc. Star Saber could be interesting, but kind of isn't yet. I'm very much enjoying Roberts's take on Megatron, too, which has been consistently fantastic since Chaos Theory.

    While all of them should be the correct answer, my current fav is going to have to be Tailgate. The way that Roberts redefined his naive nature from thinking earth cars were all alive to essentially making him into a child was really clever. He's a little bot in an old body with no real life experience trying to fake his way through life.

    Star Saber, despite him utterly being wasted as a character.

    I've been reading the IDW comics for the past... Well I read AHM in 2012, but I went to the start in 2013... but skipped over Infiltration since I read it in 09...

    Anyway, the important thing is, I love 'em... No I don't, they're rubbish... Well, varying with more bad than good...

    My point is, I've caught up with MTMTE and love it. It's the only genuinely good TF fiction from the last few years and I wanted to join in the discussion.

    My personal favorite re-characterization is Ultra Magnus. I'm not certain why. I already liked him from earlier IDW comics but I started to really love him in MTMTE. Maybe it's because of how funny his OCD is? Maybe it's because I like the Big Bang Theory and he reminds me of Sheldon Cooper? Maybe I just like OCD characters? I don't know. I just love Roberts' Magnus.

    Swerve. I always look forward to his next scene. I find him as amusing as Spike was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Though obviously Whirl is closer in character.

    Skids. He's basically the Pretender. "Skids and Swerve. Skids and Swerve..." Sing it to the tune of the old Spiderman song.

    Whirl.

    Trailbreaker. Always liked the old bot. He just seemed like an allround nice guy in the old cartoon and I always feel for him with his self loathing.

    Ultra Magnus

    Rodimus

    As many have stated above, most of the characters are excellently portrayed. I'm hoping Bluestreak will get some nice characterisation. I do like the mnemosurgeon aspect added to Chromedome. I always thought he was one of the most horribly designed G1 Transformers but Roberts has actually made him a well rounded, likeable character.

    I have to say I don't like Tailgate. I've never really liked faceplates and visors. I just find the lack of expression takes away from the characters.

    The biggest oh my god moment was the origin of Shockwave. Knowing that there is a reason behind his cold logic.

    Swerve, Whirl, Brainstorm, Cyclonus, Ultra Magnus... But I could have happily done without the whole Minimus Ambus deal.

    I don't like how different Spinister is. I'd be okay if the same characterisation was given to a nobody or if there is a reason why Spinister is acting this way.
