    Mine are mostly from the G1 cartoon:
    Optimus Prime's blaster.
    Grimlock's growl.
    The regular transformation SFX and the slowed down version for combiners.

    Yeah, I used to love that sound effect, until I realized how close it is to a fairly standard slapstick cartoon sound effect.

    Dunno what I'd choose now. I guess the G1 Seekers always had a fairly distinct blaster sound, although rather high pitched. Same goes for movie Megatron's fusion canon. Distinct but way too high pitched for such a powerful weapon.

    The distinct thumping sound of Megatron's fusion cannon

    Megatron's dragon form has a very impressive transformation sound, a really sharp twisting sound with a satisfying clack at the end.
    -Transmetal Cheetor's blaster sounds nice and energetic
    -Inferno also has a cool transformation sound, a lot of clanking of bits into place. Shame he used his ant mode less and less, despite the underground advantage.

    Animated
    -When the bigger or badder characters transformed, the classic jingle is appropriately distorted to sound deeper and more bulky.
    -Bulkhead's wrecking ball had a pretty satisfying whooshing sound when he fired it

    Prime
    -Predaking's myriad of piercing screeches, a nice change of pace from the more guttural or metallic sounds you would expect from a big metal dragon.
    -That creepy dribbling sound from Dark Energon
    -That drawn out rush when a character scored a solid hit and the scene slowed down to emphasize it

    Oh man, the Sunbow cartoon is full of awesome, memorable sfx (and a few from Star Wars :p ) like:

    *The transforming sound
    *Optimus Primes' gun
    *Megatron's gun/Megatron as a gun
    *the sound of the Seekers' weapons
    *everybody's weapon
    *the sound of them walking

    I always liked most of the blaster effects in G1, especially the deep, throaty noise from Megs' fusion cannon, Prime's ion rifle, and the Seekers' guns. I also like the heavy metal clattering sound from the bots walking or fighting each other at close range. Naming the transformation sound almost feels like it should go without saying.

    In Beast Wars I always liked the sound from Cheetor's gun (season 1). Partially because it's a fun sound and partially because it's almost a bit of a casting gag because it was also the sound used for Mega Man's Mega Buster in the Ruby-Spears MM cartoon, where the character was voiced by Ian Corlett.

    Gotta be the almost comical "Fa-whump" sound Megatron's fusion cannon makes closely followed by the transformation noise.

    Pretty much any and every sound effect from Beast Wars. Each character had a unique transformation noise, all perfectly tuned to the character. Rattrap sounded like a wind-up toy, while Megatron sounded like heavy machinery. Even when certain character got upgraded the sounds likewise got some new distortion or effect that matched the new form whilst sounding like the original. I especially like Primal's season 1 noise and Megatron's TM2 one. I also loved all the weapon sounds.

    I also love the sounds used for each character in TFA, like how Ratchet always creaked.
