    I'd have to say that, since I've been studying him quite extensively recently, that I do like the look of Energon/Shattered Glass Megatron.

    However, my all-time favorite design will always, always be a mix between Origins Megatron and Hearts of Steel Shockwave.

    I think this thread needs some G2 Cyberjet love...

    OK they were a poor mans macross toy but they were way WAY ahead of their time even when they got reissued in Universe and Robot Masters they still seemed like toys ahead of their time and they look awesome with those faces.

    I may have mentioned him, but throw Transmetal Tarantulas up there.

    God damn he was awesome on the show.

    I'd say

    ROTF Sideswipe
    ROTF Starscream (slimmed down and tatoos compared to TF07)
    Animated rejected Prowl (G1 colors)
    Animated Wingblade Prime
    Animated Cyclonus and Blackout
    Beast Machines Obsidian
    Beast Wars Transmetal Megatron
    Beast Wars Tigerhawk
    Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime
    Movie Ratchet, Ironhide, and Blackout/Grindor

    All from their on-screen models, not the toys.

    G1 Bruticus and Energon Bruticus Maximus I always thought looked great. Really imposing figures while having that mismatched freak look, like the Jason Vorhees of transformers or something.

    Unicron Trilogy would have to be Tidal Wave. Fantastic vehicle modes, love the combined look and how it reminds me of a Star Destroyer from Star Wars. Robot mode looks great, even if he can't move much.

    For movie designs it would have to be Optimus Prime. He's a big pile of awesome, especially the RotF leader-class figure.

    In the comics, it's hard to say. I'd leave it at a tie between IDW Bludgeon and Nova/Nemesis Prime. Great designs. I'd love to see a Nova Prime figure someday.

    G1 Prime. I think his cool design at least partially contributed to his popularity.

    I think I'll have to go with G1 Grimlock. It's a simple and powerful looking design that is also a dinosaur, can't go wrong there.

    Right noe, Movie Sideswipe. I wish we could get a more accurate mold of him in human alliance, with guns, retractable swords well stored kibble...
