    I'm talking updates of the original Minibots. Or even a strong homage figure. It (the figures) doesn't only have to be the lines known as CHUG. Can be from ANY series. Some of them have had quite a few (Bumblebee I'm looking at you). While others have not been as lucky. So, what are your your favorite Minibot updates?

    #1. T30 Legends Cosmos (so much character in a tiny package)
    #2. Classic Deluxe Bumblebee
    #3. Deluxe Warpath (these two just NAIL the characters so perfectly)
    #4 Scout Windcharger (amazing mold, basically deluxe quality, not necessarily makes a dead-on robot, but has PLENTY of character still coming though)
    #5. CW Powerglide maybe?

    5. Deluxe Warpath-just an amazing mold
    4. CW Powerglide-took the basic design from the original but turned it up to 11
    3. RTS Windcharger-best non-deluxe car update we've gotten
    2. deluxe Bombshell-just perfect in every way
    1. Classics Bumblebee-still the best bee after all these years. Better than MP.

    2. MakeToys Trashtalk
    3. Generations Cosmos (I have Scrounge, but the mould is gold)
    4. Combiner Wars Powerglide
    5. Cubex Huff - I know it was a flaky QC-ridden bot, but the foundation and aesthetics were bequtiful to me. I can't wait for the improved V2 from BadCube.

    Is that definitely happening?

    I have a V1, and I "fixed" 99% of the issues myself, but I'd still love a newly revamped one if it was still happening.

    I like all of the official Powerglide figures, and I I'm a fan of the A-10 aircraft.
    DOTM Powerglide edges out the CW Powerglide just by having an alt-mode that is closer to an actual A-10, in addition to having a intersting Movieverse twist to the Powerglide robot mode

    Not a top five, but:

    Titans Return Wheelie

    There isn't any minibot who got a bigger enhancement in an update than him.
