    In honor of the nameslap thread.

    Title says it all.

    Obvious first choices for me:

    RID Sky-Byte > BW TM2 Cybershark

    RID Scourge > G2 Laser Optimus Prime

    Thoughts?

    GD is for discussion of the older TV series and movies, not toys. Moving this one to the toy forum for ya.

    Talk about Transformers! Discuss your favorite series, from G1 to Animated, to anything from Japan! Transformers toy specific discussion goes in the Transformers Toy forum.

    For me, G1 characters are pretty interchangeable for me, but if I were going by figures, Henkei Red Alert is my favorite of the three mass releases of that mold.

    I'd say almost all of RID/Car Robots line.

    Especially Sky-Byte and Scourge.

    Any of the Unicron Trilogy Galvatron repaints.

    Especially Cybertron/Galaxy Force.

    Damn that toy is sexier than the sexiest whore. God damn.

    Agreed. I dont normally double dip on Leaders...I doubled dipped for Cybertron Galvatron and I dont regret it a bit.

    I think Energon beachcomber is better than cliffjumper as is Cybertron swindle over hardtop

    Dark energon Wheeljack fits somewhere in that mix too. The clear blue with dark oranges is just awesome.
