    Least - Armada Prime

    Man, choosing a fave is very difficult for me since there's so many that I like.

    However, even though I don't own him yet I'd definitely say ROTF Leader Prime will be my fave.
    Great vehicle mode, absolutely fantastic robot mode (and I LOVE movie Prime's design) and the first transforming Optimus toy to have Peter Cullen's voice built in. (Not counting the 25th G1 Prime reissue with separate voice box)
    Runners up would be Masterpiece G1 Prime, Animated Voyager Prime and Classics Prime.

    Least fave? Hmm, a draw between Alternator Prime and Energon Prime.

    Best: Cybertron Prime. Windshield chest? Sure thing. Want a Matrix with annex? You got it, it's even removable. Dont like the mouth look? Here's a faceplate! Optimus used to have a super mode that totally changed his appearance? This time he'll still look like Optimus but with wings and HUGE CANNONS ALL OVER. Oh, and we're going to make his vehicle great and his joints articulated for ya.

    Worst: Armada Prime. Watch as my trailer transforms on it's own from a horizontal brick to a vertical brick. And now watch as I combine with it for super mode, sacrificing my already crap articulation for even WORSE articulation and some stupid looking legs and an awful new head design. Just watch out, if one of my motors gives out the whole toy's screwed.

    Best- Well, I'l 100% sure that I'll love the ROTF mold, but so far I love TFA Cybertronian Optimus

    Worst- RID Legends Optimus, hate that little piece of satanic plastic.

    Of the ones I personally own?

    Favorites: G1 Encore, Henkei Classics, Animated Voyager (with the big axe from the 2 pack), Ultra Optimus Primal (the original with mutant mask)

    Least favorite: the horrible 2 pack with spinning waist. Nice bot mode, though his face looks squished. But truck mode is awful.

    If I could only own one though, I'd say the G1 Encore would be my favorite just because it's the only one I own that has a trailer.

    For playability though Henkei Classics or Ani Voyager are pure win.

    (honorable mention to Movie Leader Prime. Nice mold but a little too fiddily for my tastes)

    I've already posted in this thread, but that was over two years ago and things change, you know.

    Favorite: It's a real toss-up between Movie Leader Prime and RiD Prime. I love Movie Prime's aesthetics, but for sheer fun it's really hard to top RiD. So I think I'll got with that one.

    Least favorite: Right now, Animated Roll-Out Command Optimus. What an enormous and ludicrous waste of plastic.

    Well, let's see. I own, have owned, or have encountered the following Optimus Primes:

    G1 (back in the 80s, so it's been a LONG time since I've been in contact with this Prime... including any re-releases)
    Powermaster Prime
    BW (if Primal is included)
    RiD
    Spychangers
    Armada Leader and Deluxe (Cybertron repaint)
    Energon
    Cybertron
    The first US release of the MP Optimus Prime (can't remember the name!)
    Alternators
    Classics (Voyager and Deluxe)
    Movie Voyager and Leader
    Animated Voyager

    Wow, that's a bigger list than I realized.

    Anyways. Given my experiences...

    Favorite goes to... RiD Prime. I'm a sucker for the add-on armor. As an example... I generally don't do imports or fan projects... I love seeing em, and I fancy having em, but I can't afford it. I made arrangements in order to afford the City Commander Ultra Magnus set.

    Least Favorite: Classics Deluxe. If his head wasn't so awful, I might be OK with him. Oh, and some telescoping legs in alt mode. He's just not really fun.

    Whoah! this thread's back?

    I can update my favorite to be a tie between G1 (somebody kill these pointless underlines, please) and Classics voyager Prime. I will still continue to reffer to Classics Prime as the One Prime to Rule Them All. Honorable mention goes to TFTM First Strike Prime.

    Worst is still Energon "bitch tits" Prime, and the modern attempts at G1 Prime that have crap alt modes. Honerable metnion goes to Leader Prime from the first movie. He's stumpy.

    What is with all of the zombie threads recently? Weird.

    Anywho, on with my list.

    Favorites:
    PowerMaster Prime~My first Prime, so it will always be #1 for me.
    Cybertron Prime~So much awesomeness is plastic form!
    TFTM Leader Prime~So nice, I have four different versions!

    Least Favorites:
    Classics Prime from The Ultimate Battle 2pack~It actually looks ok in 'bot mode, but damn that alt mode!
    Alternators Prime~The point of the Alternators line for me was to have a nice vehicle with a fun yet complex transformation. This provided neither of those.
