    like the title says. they can be regular retail, 3rd party, OR any kind of exclusive from any line (that includes MP). past, present, or future (like FOC and whatnot)

    in order from greatest to least, mine would have to be:

    1. SDCC Bruticus

    2. G2 FOC Dudicus

    3. TFCC SG Drift

    4. KM - 03 Cyclops

    5. SDCC Blaster

    i know all mine are either exclusives or 3rd party but again, yours don't have to be. they can regular releases too

    For me the various Generation One TF Hasbro box designs. Will always be the best. The back box art with the fight scenes were epic.

    Pretty hard to pinpoint the top 5 for me. G2 FoC Bruticus is definitely one of the best I've seen in a while. I do like a lot of the Japanese Victory & Masterforce boxarts.

    G1 had the best overall box art, hands down.
    My personal favorites: Sixshot, Chromedome, Getaway, Jazz, Prowl, Starscream, Soundwave, Razorclaw, Snaptrap

    No way I could pick just five. There are some fantastic packages designed for TRANSFORMERS.

    G1 is tops in my book, though. I really enjoy the Binal Tech packages as well. I'd also say Alternators, but the blue boxes were the ones I like the most. I didn't enjoy the change from windowless, red boxes and then to bubble boxes, nor did I enjoy the minor changes at the tail end of the BT line (pre-BT*/KP/exclusive, as I like those, sans little girls stuff, of course).

    Prime First Edition packages are really slick, too. SDCC Terrorcon Cliffjumper deserves some love, just for the well-thought packaging, too. On the other hand, I didn't have a hard time cutting up the Prime voyager boxes at all. The deluxes are pretty decent, but I prefer the FE work over it.

    As others have noted, the exclusive boxes tend to be really nice, but they should be since we're paying more for them (and SDCC CJ falls into that, too, of course. I just noted it since I discussed Prime figures). I've always enjoyed the extra mile Hasbro went with the OTFCC Sentinel Maximus; that's some good PR work there :) . The TCC Punch/Counterpunch has probably been my favorite, since the artwork is painted.

    While I think comic book artwork is very indicative of TRANSFORMERS, I drift towards the painterly styles of artwork since I have such a fondness of G1 packages. Universe 2.0, Reveal the Sheild, and Generations all to a degree emulate this, though it's very obviously more digital.

    Just off the top of my head, the Ehobby reissue Galvatron is sick. Also Transmetal 2 Megatron is cool, SDCC rust in peace cliffjumper. The Henkei Cyclonus packaging is also sharp.
