    Since I've only bought the ones that I like I really can't make a best or worst list. Though, I will say that my least favorite is Slag...er Snarl. A more G1 homage would made this figure so much better.

    2. DLX Blackarachnia

    I have just enough Animated figures to do this list. Nice.

    I'll get around to it soon-ish.

    I can already say though that #20 is definitely Animated Deluxe Megatron, ugh. #1-4 are probably (in no order) Blitzwing, Grimlock, Leader Megatron, and Oil Slick.

    1. Longarm Prime
    2. Leader Megatron
    3. Swoop
    4. Lugnut
    5. Lockdown
    6. both Bulkheads
    7. Ultra Magnus
    8. Voyager Optimus Prime
    9. Grimlock
    10. Soundwave
    11. Ratchet
    12. Snarl
    13. Prowl
    14. Starscream
    15. Bumblebee
    16. Sentinal Prime
    17. Jazz
    18. Oil Slick
    19. Blackarachnia
    20. Blitzwing

    I left the Starscream clones off, but they'd both rank fairly high.

    My favorites are Shockwave, Blitzwing, and Voyager Prime.

    My least favorites are (And this is not saying much as I like my Animated stuff) Prowl and Ratchet.

    Lockdown has to be the worst because he is so blocky looking. Voyager Bulkhead follows only because of his size although they did make up for it with the Leader Class.

    I don't really see how Lockdown is blocky looking.

    But anyways, worst one i own would be deluxe 2pack Megatron. Easily the worst, followed by deluxe Bumblebrat. I hope the newer version that Hasbro says they're doing is a big enough improvement.

    Only Lockdown and Cybertron Voyager Megatron could be considered "worst".

    Also I like Lugnut, Oil Slick and Snarl alot, plus I'm pretty sure Swindle will get in the "best" list soon as well.

    My collection isn't that big, but it's a heck of a lot bigger then I thought it would be! (I was only planning on getting the Battle Begins 2 pack.)

    1. Leader Megatron. This toy I blame for almost all the others (Once I had him, he looked lonely ;)  ), no interest until I saw him in the store, then I had to have him, he's a fantastic figure. I've got Shadow Blade on order as well and I'm eagerly anticipating when I get that version as well.

    2. Grimlock. It helped that I used a $5 off coupon for him, but he has really and truly grown on me big time. He's a great figure and a lot of fun.

    3-4. Activators Megatron and Grimlock. Both are neat little versions of the big figures. Grimlock even has added articulation, which is sweet.

    5. Battle Begins Optimus Prime. It's a neat figure with a neat axe. I'm surprised we haven't seen an undamaged version yet.

    6. Soundwave.

    7. Lugnut.

    8. Blackarachnia

    9. Slag - err Snarl. The only reason he's so low is that his nosehorn was on the wrong way and the Cheeto fiasco.

    10. Sentinel Prime

    11. Battle Begins Megatron

    12. Swoop. I put Swoop last because every time I transform him, his head pops off and getting that head back into that balljoint on a slider mechanism is a great big pain.

    I dont have all of them but id say my least favourite is black arachnia, shes still a cool toy but i find the transformation less satisfying than with the others, ive never cared for lockdown and so not bought him but i suspect he could be one of those i get and then maybe like in hand. prowl is ingenious though fiddly but his poor balance really spoils his fun factor, he also looks a bit cheap compared to the others.

    favourites, voyager earth megs, lugnut, grimlock, soundwave are near the top.

    earth megs seems to stand out from the others, his colour scheme gives a higher quality look than the other toys, a'd also say his TF is satisfying and both modes look great and his articulation is amazing, axe is poor though.

    id say i TF earth megs and jazz the most.

    i like snarls look but hes probably the one i was most dissapointed with because of his low articulation and lack of snapping together butt cheeks!

    To me they are all good except for voyager megatron.

    My few complaints that don't necessarily ruin them..
    1. Blitzwing doesn't stay together im plane mode very well, the nose cone wants to come down.
    2. Snarl i don't like how his legs don't "snap" in place.
    3. Lockdown his hands don't open up without doing a little work.

    My Best 5:


    *Ultra Magnus. Amazing toy.

    *Leader Megatron. Awesome Decepticon leader.

    *Lugnut. Tiny awesomeness.

    *Jazz. Ninja-bots are always cool.

    *Prowl. See Jazz.


    My Worst 5:


    *Voyager Cybertron Megs. Poor design & articulation is lackluster.

    *Lockdown, because of his stupid hand flaw. If they could fix that he'd be a great figure.

    *Blackarachnia. She's too... female.

    *Bumblebee, just disappointing compared to most of the others.

    *Supreme Roll-Out Prime, on general principle.
