    My favourite has to be the Cybertron design (but not in Stormbringer it looks terrible there in my opinion) as it is really interesting to me- maybe because the arm cannons and the back remind me of armada (one of my favourite Optimus designs overall)

    His Cybertron body looks all sorts of bad ass.

    Yeah, I love me some ongoing Optimus. Something about the shoulders in particular really does it for me...

    This one's easy. G1. The others all have generic or busy-ness problems. Of course, that's just me.

    My favorite is the one where he's Red, White, and Blue and turns into a truck.

    You know?

    (Should have said who designed each version like in the Megatron one, and the concept art ((if any)) rather than in comic art, just think it's better like that ;3)

    My favorite will always be Figueroa's design, it's sooo cool

    The Ongoing design is fantastic. I really wish we could get a toy that does it justice.

    I'm reserving judgement until I've seen Griffith's vehicle mode, I don't like the silly vane on Don's, and really Griffith's is just a refinement of the same design, but if he's ditched the vane then it's the winner.
