    all g1

    1. bumblebee/cliffjumper- because they were small and still kicked all types of ass and got into tomfoolery. plus i was always the little kid, so it was nice seeing the little guys take some fools down.

    2. soundwave- he was cold, loyal, and knew everything, and seemed to always have an answer. plus commanding his own small little army, and coming up with awesome names for his 'operations.'

    3. shockwave- his eloquent voice coupled nicely with his visciousness.

    G1 Prowl, obviously. Logical mind really appealed to me.

    Skywarp, such a douchebag, I love it!

    Rid Scourge for bringing in what would eventually be Nemesis Prime. Love the concept.

    BW Dinobot. One of the best written characters in all of TF. He was a Predacon turned Maximus who's very honorable and formed a great bond with Rattrap. BW wouldn't be as good without him.

    Sixshot. He's one of the deadliest and more powerful Decepticon in G1. Killing Ultra Magnus means he probably could have taken on OP all by himself if needed. Also he's got enough honor and conscience in him not to harm Daniel when he had the chance.

    Blitzwing. He's one of the first toys I ever loved as a kid. Being a triplechanger just makes him infinitely cooler. What he did in the Five Faces of Darkness showed the kind of character he is, who turned on his leader in order to save the race of TFs.

    As you can tell I like Decepticons who are honorable and independent, not just another one of Megatron's lackies.

    In no particular order:

    1)Starscream: Just loved the character of a coward who secretly plans to overthrow his own leader.

    2)Kup- Old timer haha

    3)Bumblebee- Smaller but still kicking all types of ass out there

    Sideswipe-1/2 of the Transformer Tappert brothers. Gets the nod because he tries harder.

    Slag- other than the Primes, he was the Autobot MVP for the anmated movie. Takes down Devastator all by himself, and burns a hole in the ass of a GOD.

    Dinobot- One of the best characters created for the series. Conflicted, intelligent, and deadly.

    1. G1 Sixshot: He has 6 different modes and killed Ultra Magnus in headmasters.
    2. G1 Shockwave: He turns into a cybertronian gun and has logical power. He also overthrew megatron.
    3. Do combiners count because if so, G1 Abominus, if not WFC Warpath

    Starscream: a very awesome character that manages to stay very consistent over all generations of Transformers. A powerful character who commands his own subgroups, Starscream can hold his own in most cases.

    Beast Wars Megatron: A very cautious villian, but probably one of the best Megatrons. A smooth villian that knows what he is doing. Dinosaur alt-mode is absolutely awesome, and he is very memorable as a toy and as a character.

    Sky-byte: a memorable character that probably brought the most personality to RiD. Sky-byte is one of my favourite characters and comes from the series that I watched the most as a kid.

    Animated Ratchet - He is probably the most well developed character in all of animated.

    G1 Starscream - come on, it's screamer

    G1 Grimlock - The dinobot leader has always been awesome, and he amused me to no end as a child.

    Starscream - my favorite alt mode, hilarious personality, occasionally monumentally badass.

    Optimus Prime - iconic to the nth degree, Peter Cullen FTW, embodiment of some of our best ideals.

    Dinobot - I love conflicted characters, and those that march to the beat of their own drum, and one that turns into a raptor is that much better.

    1. (tie) Bumblebee - small like me, incredibly brave like I'd like to be, and cute
    1. (tie) Hot Rod/Rodimus - best TF design ever, love the hot head, chosen one, angst, the deadpan sense of humor, everything really
    2. Bluestreak - love the original Datsun character design (doorwings rock!), my first toy I owned, love his background on his bio a character turly scarred by war

    1) G1 Galvatron - Downright ruthless and crazy to boot. Very entertaining to watch.

    2) G1 Megatron & BW Megatron tied.

    BW Megatron: He was one of the most successful villains in TF history. Dude was pretty damn funny, too. Yeess.

    BW Optimus Primal: His character was just awesome. He was strong, but not without his weaknesses.

    BW Dinobot: I just love how honor plays such a role in his character, especially in Code of Hero.

    Optimus Prime: Can't give any reasons that have not been given before by other fans, honestly. Plus he's a full-fledged cultural icon.

    Prowl: I digs me the logical straight man characters. He's also a cop in uniform so bonus.

    Shockwave: See above. Opposite side of the same coin (excluding the cop thing). Also, I think he's got the coolest and creepiest design of all TFs. If the Decepticons really existed, he'd be the one I would be most terrified of.

    Soundwave - smooth with a cold, calculating logic. Loyal to his "children."

    Shockwave - smooth with a cold, calculating logic

    Bludgeon - honorable to a degree, but brutally ruthless when needed to be. Also loved the design of his Pretender shell! More Asian-themed TFers were needed!

    and honorable mentions to Predaking, Piranacon, Optimus Prime and Scorpnok
