    i would go with the datsuns from G1 (prowl bluestreak & smokescreen) and anything related to them as my favorites (their alternator subaru versions, classics 2.0, jazz in G1 and alt is very similar to them so he goes ther too)

    Always liked the Armada Seekers aspect, at least in the cartoons and comics.

    The g1 Cartoon designs. I am a simple purist and prefer the old school animated looks to a lot of the detailed stuff. that's not to say I don't love Don or EJ's art, I just think the cartoon is the best...probably for nostalgia reasons

    So hard to choose a single character. I'm not basing this on toy designs; more what they would look like in Dreamwave comics style (assuming they've ever been drawn in it).
    G1 Ultra Magnus, G1 Starscream, G1 Optimus Prime, BW Transmetal Tarantulus, BW Transmetal Rattrap, BW Rhinox...That's off the top of my head for designs that I love...I'm sure there's more but I'll keep this as short as I can for now.

    Wow, there are so many for me . . .

    I'll echo a lot of the G1 sentiment already found in this discussion. There are very few G1 toys and/or character model sheets [from the animated series] I don't like. I love a lot of the original designs in G2 (e.g., the Laser Rods) as well. From a design standpoint, BW and BM gave us a lot as well, though I'm not particularly fond of many of them as "Transformers" *dodges bullets* That being said, I heart the Optimal Optimus mold (*loves his Primal Prime*) and Ultra Jetstorm. I really don't need to say anything about CR/RiD since I love all of those . . . I really like the Megatron and Tidal Wave from Armada, and I'd like to think that Unicron goes without saying (though he could use some improvements to make him more round). I really like the Supercon Prime design as well as many of the Minicons. I've always had a fondness for the Inferno design from Energon. Landmine, the Omegas, Dreadwing, Galvatron, and a few others are great as well. GF/Cybertron has some cool designs like Optimus and Megs/Galvatron and Primus as well as the Cyb Defense team. The movie designs have really grown on me well, but I think many of those could greatly benefit from some more "iconic" head designs that are more instantly recognizable. Though the style isn't my cup of tea, I do really like all of the designs for Animated.

    . . . and do I really need to comment on Alts/BTs? :D

    Do Go-Bots count? Because Tux is all kinds of classy. Look at that hat. Considering the kinds of designs they come up with, they oughta consider this guy for Animated :lol
