    Blitzwing & Springer for me as well, mainly because they're the only triple changers whose alt modes actually maintain some sort of plausible scale relation to one another.

    I'd also maybe take SnapDragon and ApeFace out of this while they are triple changers due to them really falling under the headmaster title it would mean we would also have to count any transformer who has a "full" 3rd alt mode such as fortmax scorpinok etc it would just make the poll to large so I'd just keep it to the core 6

    I'm just going to say Blitzwing, but that's mainly from me liking the Animated take on the character.

    Blitzwing.

    The ultimate combo for warfare.

    Astrotrain - still awesome, the shuttle is my favorite part.
    Octane - never got his appeal other than his bio regarding hoarding fuel.
    Springer - one of the bright spots of season 3, the best versitile warrior for the Bots.
    Broadside - loved the idea, but probably would have been better if he was "Omega Supreme" sized, and jumbo cargo plane rather than a jet (kinda like RTS Lugnut). The aircraft carrier would have been awesome if was used and shown more on-screen.
    Sandstorm - not very useful, but he's from a pacifist colony, so he's already got the strike against him.

    IMO, Apeface and Snapdragon is part of another category due to being Headmasters.

    Definitely Springer, #1 for me. Loved both alt-modes, especially his car. I also like Sandstorm due to his episodes in season 3 of G1 and Octane for his design. Never liked Astrotrain's character all that much, although I did love him in the movie, and the only time Blitzwing really did anything was when he defected to the Autobots in FFoD.

    Astrotrain, as the opposite ends of transportation in the industrial age.

    if your going to be technically Scatershot should be in it as he has 3 modes, so does Metroplex, Trypticon, Scorpenok and so on but yeah if just going by the category as tripplechangers as a subgroupe then blitzwing all the way.

    Animated Blitzwing is in my top 3 favourite characters of all time but G1 Blitz never stood out to me.

    So I'm going with the Space Choo-Choo

    Dudes seriously. Blitzwing transformed from a Tank to a Plane. Isn't that what we all want at the end of the day?

    I would have voted for him if we were allowed multiple selections, but with only one option, I had to give it to Blitz.
