    Anyone else mentally rank their WFC figures? Here are my ranks, based on what I have:
    1. Spinister
    2. Voyager Optimus
    3. Shockwave
    4. Acid Storm
    5. Skywarp
    6. Jetfire
    7. Omega Supreme and Countdown
    8. Cliffjumper
    9. Astrotrain
    10. Red Wing
    11. Ultra Magnus
    12. Soundwave
    13. Siege Starscream
    14. Refraktor 3-pack
    15. Prowl
    16. Ironhide
    17. Hound
    18. Brunt and Barricade in a tie
    19. Apeface
    20. Sideswipe
    21. Ratchet
    22. Frenzy/Rumble
    23. Lazerbeak
    24. Red Alert
    25. Mirage
    26. Flywheels
    27. Sixgun
    28. Cog
    29. Wheeljack
    30. Thundercracker
    31. Ion Storm
    32. Nova Storm
    33. Megatron
    34. Earthrise Starscream
    35. Ravage
    36. Terrordaxtyl
    37. Shrute
    38. Fracas

    Feel free to update these lists as the series goes on, I will be. I should also note that if I were to assign a grade to each of these figures, none of them would be below a "C" or 70/100 with most of them earning a "B" or higher. All of these are good figures, some of them are just better than the others.

    yeah know, I was messing with him yesterday, and while I think he's got one of the best robot modes in TF history (that head sculpt!), I started wondering if they didn't sacrifice too much of the alt mode to achieve it. That false cockpit foot just really takes him down a number of pegs: it looks silly, prevents him from sitting particularly well in chopper mode, makes the transformation RIDICULOUSLY fiddly and feels like if they didn't need that space underneath dedicated to the foot, they could have done something better/more satisfy with the arms... would single split cockpit feet have really looked much worse in bot mode?

    he still looks great, and is easily my favorite from Siege (which I mostly didn't care for aside from the "new" characters)

    1. Cel-shaded Optimus
    2. everything else

    (I wish they did cel-shaded Soundwave instead of Soundblaster for the 35th Anni. wave.)

    I'll admit the alt mode isn't perfect, but I don't mind the false cockpit.

    it wasn't so much JUST the false cockpit ~ but everything that goes with it, particularly how if he didn't have that bulk back there, perhaps something less obvious could be done with the arms.

    the double cockpit feet even kind of messes with me now when I look at the robot mode: "Why does he have 2 cockpits? how does that work???"

    He's still freaking great. That teal-blue-green color is just awesome.

    I'm not sure if I have an exact ranking order, but my top 3 would probably be Starscream, Shockwave, and Springer. I haven't been disappointed by a single figure and have been consistently impressed by the line.

    I picture it as an underslung gunner cockpit, kind of like a tail-gunner in a B-17 or a Ball turret on a B-24.

    Nice! I almost entirely agree, personally, I would switch Flywheels and Brunt, but those are just my experiances.
