    I can't decide but I have narrowed it down to four. I'm leaning towards Ultra Magnus.

    Y'know, I think Ultra Magnus might be the best of the group. Ultra Magnus is pretty cool too tho so I don't know.

    Energon and Superlink are full of amazing figures, was especially fond of the Decepticons. The combining deluxe and voyager Autobots are a really mixed bag though, as in most of them are pretty bad with a few exceptions, like Voyager Cliffjumper and Deluxe Rodimus.

    Agreed

    As bad as the cartoon was, the toys were pretty good, especially the Brute Mode guys (Landmine/Landquake and Bulkhead/Quickstrike)

    As you said, the ‘Cons made up most of the good figures lol

    Everyone got mad at this toy for being bright orange and for having an insane armored death train mode, ie for being awesome.

    You smoke too tough, Sentinel Prime. Your swag too different. Your bitch too bad. They'll kill you.

    This is a very interesting toy, quite the involved transformations for a Legacy figure.

    Didn't think he would be my favorite Sandstorm and he is not (T30 still wins for me) but he's very cool nonetheless and he fits the shelf aesthetic better.

    Would still encourage anyone to check him out if you can.

    Great shots. I think Reactivate still narrowly beats this out for me, but there are days when this is my favorite traditional* modern Optimus.

    (*Qualifier only made for Legends Super Ginrai and the Beast Combiner gimmick figure.)

    Thanks dude. In a lot of cases, I just happened to have perfect lighting around me when I think about it. In the example you've quoted, we had just gotten back from dinner, and a Walmart run (in which I had bought the thing, which was still somehow on shelves). When I opened it and began posing it, I noticed it was sunset, so I propped it up on the dash and snapped a few!

    Then I just put a basic filter on it and up the "pop" option in my camera's basic editing app, and sometimes it comes out pretty good! A lot of it is just finding interesting angles and perspectives as well when you take photos.

    Yeah, I actually kinda want to get the reactivate prime, but I don't really need another soundwave or Optimus, as cool as the designs are.maybe someday; we'll see.

    A great figure that I love taking it out to play with, the redemption of this movie is the toys that we got. And this is not just a great one, but one of my favorites of all times.

    If only I could get an articulated claw hand (and not stuck to buy a whole kit just for that).
