I'm looking for jaw dropping amazing pieces to add. What would you suggest, and why?
I’m currently quite enamoured with MMC Assaultus. The individual bots are good, the alt modes are good and the combined form looks to be amazing with it’s all in one transformation.
I’m also quite taken with FT Roadking. The truck and trailer transformation into a bot not much bigger than MP OP(s) is awesome.
As far as official TFs go: MP44 Optimus is a great figure. And Seige Springer is a winner all around for me (although I’ve heard others have issues with him). MP47 Hound would be on this list as well if weren’t for the major QC issues with the plastic quality (otherwise he is seriously amazing at what he accomplishes with his transformation and look in both modes).
Edit: And for some reason, I always forget about MP Grapple (and by extension MP Inferno), I highly recommend the mold.
MakeToys Striker Manus
Fans Toys Quietus
Fans Toys Phoenix
GCreations MTST Wrath
Toy Lab Dark Knight
Project Last Son
Fans Toys Sovereign is pretty impressive in either coloration. If their Scourge follows suit, it will make a stylish trio with Quietus.
All the Gigapower Dinos. DX9 Gabriel. FT Phoenix.
TFM Havoc is one of the most beautiful combiners ever made. He is the center piece of my collection.
Followed closely by UT Dragoon, TFC Poseidon, UT Challenger, Gcreation movie Grimlock and FT Quietus.
MP-36, I love how it looks!!!
FT Dibots - doesn't matter if you have them in robot or alt mode. Best TF team ever made with the best single figure of all times (Stomp).
Fanstoys Galvatron and Cyclonus.
MMC Ocular Max Zinnia.
This is the coolest but not available unfortunately.
Zealot (not Lugnut) is coming!
Here are some of my more favorite figures in my collection:
TFC Supreme Tactical Commander (with the missile upgrade):
But I've always been a fan of the G.I.Joe Rolling Thunder, so of course I'd find a transforming version awesome.
DNA Design Susano'o certainly looks cool:
And actually pretty poseable (if you can get over the stiffness and feeling like things are going to snap while posing him):
But I have the original version (with the Toyhax stickers, sniper rifle is from MMC's BW Ravage release), I hear the version available now (the weathered version) is not so good.
FT Hydra, Roadking, and Quietus:
Hydra and Quietus have their issues, but Road King is pretty solid. However you feel about FT, they do at least make stuff that looks good on a shelf, though not necessarily fun to fiddle with.
Fans Hobby also makes some cool looking big bois:
They take some work to stand in a good pose, but I think they look pretty awesome once you do.
As people have said, the Gigapower Dinos are all awesome, l think they have the best looking Grimlock:
And finally, GCreation Fuuma is a stylish take on Sixshot:
But yeah, I feel these are among some of the more eye-catching figures out there. Though I haven't even delved into my Legends scale stuff.
I mean there's some nice picks here for sure, buy we all know there is only one true answer to the coolest TF.....
This right here. Especially the gigapower dinobots.
Oozes class and style. Way better than the official version.
I don't own it though because of the stupid restrictions I've placed on my collective impulses.
I hate myself some times.
I've amassed a lot of robot toys over the years, but the one that literally makes both collectors' and normies' jaws drop is Lewin Atlas.
DX9 Carry. The transformation is pure wizardry in that it turns a very tall robot into a relatively tiny, compact truck - and manages to be incredibly fun and easy to do. He’s also built very solidly, has good joints, holds together well in both modes and looks great (if you can manage to forgive the giant wings/spoiler).
What's so special about him? Have a pic?
That's the super gigantic upsized version of Optimus prime that's more than 2 feet tall.
Having the full set of FT Dibot X repaint (silver) is pretty damn bling and impressive, especially if Swoop is red instead of blue.
But for current bling, FT Quietus T and I am sure FT Sovereign M and Gigapower Grimlock Chrome should be some very good contenders, but if you want best engineered product that you should absolutely own, look no further than FT Roadking.
DX9 Gabriel gets my vote for number one, first runner up: OS Gravity Builder. Size alone gives them a greater presence.
