    I'm not gonna lie, I expected Hound to be my favorite, and while I do really like him, Drift is my favorite. He's calm, optimistic, and cultivated. Plus his banter with Hound was hilarious.

    I did still like Hound, who's portrayed as a loyal soldier. He was a lot more savage than I thought he'd be, even more so than Ironhide was. Not gonna lie, I was kinda turned off by how "I've been itchin' to kill something" and his swearing. But his taking his hat off to the fallen Leadfoot was kinda sweet.

    Crosshairs was probably my least favorite new 'bot, but I still appreciate the character because we have so few Autobots like him. He's an asshole that seems like he could easily be Roadbuster's cousin, but even Roadbuster showed fierce loyalty to Prime in DotM, while Crosshairs outright stated he wanted to be leader at one point, and openly criticised Prime for bringing in the Dinobots.

    So, who's your favorite?

    Hound stole the show for me! Crosshairs is an ahole, but, I like that. Gives him character. Drift, oh boy, Drift is such a badass! He's cool, calm, and collected. Also awesome in combat. But, I choose Hound for this one!

    Drift was my favorite because he had a code of honor, he was a triple changer with two cool alt modes, he was funny, he was very calm, and he had fun quirks like haiku.

    Hound was cool for the most part, but I think he spoke too much. He had way too many bad one liners in the final battle.

    I like that Crosshairs was like an Autobot Starscream. He was selfish, but he was awesome and thrill-seeking. I think he had the coolest vehicle mode because that green Corvette was gorgeous.

    Hound. He was a total badass and fought until his weapons had no more ammo. A true bot to the end.

    Hound. He was a favorite of mine during G1 (played that toy to pieces, literally). And Bulkhead is my favorite recent TF creation. Movie Hound wasn't really either of them, but had similarities to both. He was just fun.

    Drift is a close second. What I really want now is a proper
    Drift triplechanger

    For the sake of being a Sideswipe Expy, Crosshairs. He's a jerk, yes, and he's selfish with a negative attitude. But it's not often that an Autobot critises Prime's leadership skills. Points for that. Plus... ROBO-TRENCHCOAT!

    I feel like Crosshairs is the closest thing to a movie Sunstreaker as we'll ever get.

    Crosshairs for me. He was a bit of an assshole, but I thought it was great. It wasnt over the top like I was expecting. John dimmagio did a great job voiceing him as well, it really fit his character. He did question Prime, but was still very loyal to him in the end. He knew who the leader of the autobots was and followed orders. I also like that he seemed to form a bond with the dinobots on the bridge, Especially Scorn. Last but not least. The trench coat was awesome!

    I liked Drift-He reminded me of Takeo from Call Of Duty: Zombies.

    I liked Crosshairs. He was like a Starscream-Sunstreaker mix

    I also loved Hound, I thought he was going to die a soldier's death but survived. He probably had the most Con Kills behind Optimus.

    ALL WERE SO AWESOME! I could not get enough of them I wish we saw so much more of them. All the Autobots were rich with personality in AOE!

    A tie between Hound and Crosshairs. Both were brilliant.

    Wish Drift would've actually utilized his triple change ability in battle.

    Though I voted for Hound, all of them are my favorites.
    Hound is tough and loyal, Crosshairs is a loose cannon, and Drift pretends to be calm and gentle. I love all of them.
