    We weren't being objective, it was all subjective. We each posted which figures we personally liked most, which explains how the lists vary among members.

    Shin... you're in the DC area, yeah? I think I remember you from the VA sightings thread a million years ago.

    I didn't see the individual lists, that would've settled the subjectivity question.

    Brawl mold great figure, simplistic and fun. That is what makes a good legends figure. Able to transform it in a few seconds and good esthetics. Legends class figures deserve their own admiration. Deluxes are the bulk of figures and the Voyagers and Leaders make the lists way too easy.
    When it comes down to it, a good transformer is a total package. Bringing the nostalgia, like Legends Cosmos or Powerglide while bringing a new and more modern transformation as well as being screen accurate. Yet still have that vibe of being a smaller sized figure. As are the original g1 minibots.
    Of the late figures Beachcomber really brings it all. I remember the G1 toy "my best friend had him". I feel Seaspray is a bit less good still great. Other than that we haven't seen many, and the new line has no legends sadly. I do hope they return. Since that little package of plastic toys brings a lot of joy.

    Yeah. The Legends class figures are also just plain adorable. I wish we had gotten a G1 accurate Warpath though.
