Movie Optimus Prime
Prime Optimus Prime
IDW Optimus Prime
Prime Arcee and IDW Arcee

A bit if a difficult choice for me - it was either G1 Optimus or rather surprisingly (when I thought about it) G1 Shockwave.
As a kid, I had this impression that Shockwave was this shadowy, almost mythical bad-ass, especially in the cartoon where he's not really seen. The Marvel comic continuity pretty much re-inforced that view, too. Not only that, but the Shockwave toy was impossible to find in the UK.
So in some ways, he was sort of iconic of Transformers because was 1) never really seen and 2) was depicted as such a bad ass when he WAS seen.
No other? What about Armada Overload
G1 sixshot for sure. Would love to see him and Star Saber go at it!
G1 Optimus prime but of course.
G1 Prime. You can show that toy/model to anyone and it would be instantly recognized. A blind person can recognize Prime by sight.
G1 Optimus. Even if you're not into this continuity, everyone can regonize him.
Plus, he's a poster boy for the entire franchise.
Even the Bayformer Prime is influenced by G1 design more than by anything else.
G1 Starscream, Soundwave, Bumblebee, Megatron could be a close second.
Greatest ≠ Iconic. G1 Optimus Prime is without question the most iconic transformer, but that doesn't make him the greatest character.
