    I don't usually post list threads like this, but it's been on my mind a few times lately. What's bugged me is that it's not as easy as I thought it would be to come up with a real top ten. I mean there is so much to cover, Iconic characters, gimics, subgroups, music, movies, cartoons, comics, episodes and single issues, toys, etc.

    Anything goes in this list. A single listing can be just a character or a whole series..... the only one that should go without saying is transforming/transformation. No need to give your reasons for choices, but if you'd like to please post it after your list... as it will make the list easier to read.

    This is a top ten list of the most important, coolest, and iconic that the whole TF Universe has to offer.

    4. Animated movie
    5. Gestalts.
    6. Alternators/ Binaltech.
    7. Triple-changers

    Like my buddy Omegatron, also not necessarily in order:

    1. Binaltech/Alternators
    2. The Movie (2007)
    3. Big Convoy
    4. TFC Bookstyle Reissues
    5. Brave
    6. RiD (Car Brothers/Omega Prime)
    7. Minicons
    8. BW/BM show
    9. Masterpiece Prime
    10. Galaxy Force

    'Twas harder than I thought... I wanted to get in Universe 2008, the Energon combiners and BWN in there as well. And TFW, of course.

    Here's my list:

    1. RID- show and toy line
    2. Grimlock- pretty much any incarnation
    3. Skywarp- pretty much any incarnation
    4. Live-action movie- including toy line
    5. Animated Shockwave- toy and character
    6. Animated in general- show and toy line
    7. Gestalts
    8. Triple-changers
    9. Classics/Universe 2.0
    10. the Fallen

    Little harder than I thought it would be. Most are very close to each other.

    1 Transformers Animated, specifically Lugnut and Meltdown (for making a human villain who was cool)

    2 The Reflector toy. Damn, that was cool! Wish cartoon Reflector was as awesome.

    3 Decepticon Gestalts. I never really felt any love for the Autobot combiners, but Devastator, Menasor and Bruticus were win

    4 Female Autobots. Some of the sexiest bots I've ever seen!

    5 Barricade. I didn't think much of the movie, but an evil police car of all things was brilliant. Also "Are you ladiesman217? ARE YOU LADIESMAN217?"

    6 Dr. Smoov spoofs.

    7 Robot Heroes. I care more about these little buggers than I do about the regular lines.

    8 Making Go-Bots cool (again or for the first time, depending on your viewpoint.) I can't wait to get Crasher/Fracture! Love those femmes!

    9 Beast Wars cartoon.

    10 Haiku shark.

    Aside from robots that transform to real life vehicles (Im lookin at you BW!)

    1.Triple Changers (hard enough to design 2 modes)

    2.Female bots/cons (adds variety)

    3.Gestalts (nuff said)

    4.Mini-con teams combiners (tiny gestalts!!!)

    5.Motorcycle transformers (including the awesome dirt bike bot from Energon I think) (cuz its hard to do one that looks cool in both modes)

    6.Different size classes (I dont know of any toylines with this many "standard" size classes)

    7.different/new incarnations of characters across multiple lines

    8.Robots having disinct personalities/ethnicities/accents/etc.

    9.Live action movie

    10. One the very few but elite toons-to-toys to survive (from my childhood) into the new 21 century!

    Here is my list:

    1. Alternators & Binaltech (Pinnacle of TF engineering IMO)

    2. Masterpiece line (modern representations of G1 characters)

    3. TFcon (Had a blast this year, can't wait to go back)

    4. The characters (I love the different array of personalities)

    5. Beast Wars (This is my G1)

    6. Classics & Henkei (Same reason as the Masterpiece line)

    7. G2 Seaspray, G2 Beachcomber, G2 Skydive (My first 3 Transformers)

    8. Great people I have met through trades & TFcon

    9. Lack of TF Scalpers (It least it seems in my area, where Star Wars and Hot Wheels rule the roost)

    10. Transformers (2007) (Re-energized my interest in Transformers)
