    1. Ravage--> jaguar alternator

    2. Bumblebee --> HA bee

    3. Ironhide --> unreleased animated

    4. Soundwave music label most definitely

    5. Lockdown stealth target exclusive

    And a bonus question...In your opinion, will Hasbro ever repaint a movie Optimus Prime into an Ultra Magnus?

    1. Ravage - Energon Battle Ravage

    2. Bumblebee - Classics Bumblebee. I'm personally partial to the repaint from the Evolution of a Hero 3 Pack, but this mold IS Bumblebee.

    3. Ironhide - Universe would get my first pick, but I think the Botcon version (Energon Towline repaint) could be better. I just don't have him to know for sure.

    4. Soundwave - G1. They have had some good goes at this guy, but to me the original is still the best.

    5. Lockdown - Love the Animated, but I have heard the ROTF works better. Again, I don't have that one so I can't say for sure.

    And a bonus question...In your opinion, will Hasbro ever repaint a movie Optimus Prime into an Ultra Magnus? No.

    1. Device Label Ravage. Best flash drive ever.

    2. HFTD battle Blades Bumblebee. Still suffers in the area of torso (he only really has one in the front) but still far more awesome than the other toys in the ROTF line for Bumbles.

    3. HFTD Deluxe Ironhide. I got the voyager forever ago and I still really hate it. The deluxe is far better in design, only really suffering in size (Along with weapons size and undercarriage in vehicle mode. Some things can't be fixed though).

    4. I'm gonna say WFC Soundwave will be my favorite, unless he gets a better toy in the next movie line. ROTF Soundwave is eh, I never really got into the original Transformers toys, and Animated Soundwave is good but still I'm favoring WFC.

    5. Ehhhhh I'll have to go with ROTF Lockdown. I think the Animated design is great, but the ROTF one is a little bit better in my eyes.

    1. Alternators (jaguar, not battle ravage) (would have given it to the movie deluxe if they'd done a better job with him- but the alternator is GREAT)

    2. Have to go with TFTM premium BB. I have several others I like quite a bit (including battle blades), but this is the closest they've come to nailing the movie version. I like the movie version a lot.

    3. Original TFTM toy (although I added the NEST head to mine).

    4. I don't know, Cybertron is really cool. So is the G1 version.

    5. I have the ROTF version, and he's migrated down to a box in the basement. I'm just not that crazy about this character in any form.

    1. Ravage - Probably ROTF Ravage.

    2. Bumblebee - That one's insanely hard as there's a lot of BB's. HA, Alternity, Classics are among the best.

    3. Ironhide - Oppisite issue, there aren't many good Ironhides (G1, Eneron, Universe lol). Probably ROTF Recon Ironhide.

    4. Soundwave - G1 or Music Label.

    5. Lockdown - ROTF.

    Wow, for a toyline I don't care for all that much, I'm giving ROTF a lot of credit.

    I'm basing my opinions off of the figures I own.

    1. Ravage - I'm gonna say the Classics Ravage that came with Classics Hound.

    2. Bumblebee - I want to say HA Bumblebee, but I've been loving my Henkei Bumblebee lately.

    3. Ironhide - TFTM Ironhide. I just love the mold.

    4. Soundwave - The original, the best, G1 Soundwave.

    5. Lockdown - ROTF Lockdown. This figure captues everything about the glory of TFA Lockdown that we saw in the cartoon series.

    Bonus Question: I'm going to say yes. I think after TF3 Hasbro will appeal to collectors a little bit and give us the White Optimus Prime. It'd be an easy choice for the repaint.

    1. Ravage- The one that comes with universe hound

    2. Bumblebee- well i am gonna choose out of movie BB since he has flooded the market and its HA Bee

    3. Ironhide- I gotta go with the Universe it has the sticky paint issue and some panel lines but i think he is a great update to Ironhide.

    4. Soundwave- I gotta say g1. Soundwave was one of the best g1 figures ever and still is a great figure. Sadly i sold mine when i was not collecting for a while.

    5. Lockdown- ROTF Lockdown. Yeah he has some issues rubber hook and hand and the ball joints but he looks so creepy and his vehicle mode is just sexy.

    As for a repaint of ROTF Prime to UM i say hasbro might to make a quick buck but i think we need a brand new UM that incorporates the trailer like the RID one did for example.

    1. Universe Ravage

    2. Battle Blade Bumblebee

    3. Recon Ironhide

    4. Cybertron Soundwave (I'm a minority on this.)

    (1) Ravage - Wal-Mart exclusive Alternators Jaguar Ravage

    (2) Bumblebee - Classics Deluxe Bumblebee

    (3) Ironhide - RotF Voyager Recon Ironhide

    (4) Soundwave - G1 Soundwave, although GF Soundwave is a very close second

    (5) Lockdown - Abstain. I don't like the character and both of the Deluxe molds released so far (TFA and RotF) have been terrible.

    Bonus Question - Depends if the current Movie aesthetic carries on past TF3. If TF4 is going to have a similar aesthetic, then I think they probably won't repaint Prime as Ultra Magnus, just in case they decide to include Ultra Magnus as a new character/mold in a later film. If TF4 is a visual reboot, or there is no TF4, I think they'll likely repaint Prime as Ultra Magnus to make some more money on a Leader Prime mold.

    1. Beast Wars Metals Ravage- One day I hope to purchase it, but it's out of my price range for now. The best Ravage in my collection is G1.

    2. Classics Bumblebee - Though I like the deluxe Camaro BB, nostalgia wins here. I don't have Human Alliance Bee yet so it may take the top spot.

    3. Ironhide - Classics. Iron Hide always gets horrible toys, and if you can ignore the panel lines, this one is awesome. Recon Iron Hide is a close second.

    4. Soundwave - G1. I like the idea of Music Label Soundwave but it can't interact with cassettes. Legends Cybertron Soundwave is a fun toy as well.

    5. ROTF Lockdown - not many to choose from, but Animated Lockdown just wasn't that good a toy. ROTF Lockdown is a pretty good toy, just not a great one.

    BONUS: Doubt it'll happen, but if it's done well I'd buy it :p
