    Well Wheeljack for the inventive and the transformation and looks of him. Then after awhile i went to Jazz cause hes a music guy like myself and loves loud rock music. Hes been 1 of my favorites for awhile but really Wheeljack and Jazz both are my equal favorite no change to me in love of character.

    First favorite is far and away Jazz. He is still the coolest in my opinion. Coolest 'bot, coolest alt-mode, best personality and 2nd in command to boot!

    Recent favorite: I've gained a new appreciation for cyclonus. Very cool toy mode, especially given that most of '86 was steaming, brown corny crap. The way his forearms/hands flip to become the jet boosters and vertical stabilizers is pretty clever. In the cartoon I loved the way he tried, often in vain, to be the voice of reason to Galvatron's batshit crazy.

    My first favorite was Hound. This is probably because I used his alt mode to push around in the dirt and over gravel. He was a good toy to play with.

    Now, I kinda like Windblade.

    Played in the dirt is the key. That's before all of the "keep it new/MIB" restrictive thoughts come to mind. You used to be always able to know how popular a toy was with someone by how much wear/dirty it became over time

    Growing up, my favourites were Rodimus Prime and Galvatron. Target 2006 presented Galvatron as such a cunning villain to say nothing of his invulnerability. In the Marvel UK comic, he wasn't killed off by a single Transformer but the Universe itself.

    Blaster was also a favourite thanks to his feud with Grimlock. Megatron, Soundwave (never get tired of his voice), Prowl, Blurr, Fortress Maximus, the conflicted Scorponok, Inferno, Ruckus (I always liked loyal Decepticons), Hound and Matrix Affinity Thunderwing.
    Kick Off too was an obscure favourite. He looked great and his tech spec portrayal depicting him as a vengeful ex gladiator won me ever the first time I saw him in a shop.

    Recent favourites:

    Prime Wars Megatron
    Prime Wars Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime
    Animated Prowl
    Roche Prowl
    Rotorstorm
    Animated Lugnut
    Prime Smokescreen
    Shatter
    RID Steeljaw
    RID Scorponok
    MTMTE Swerve
    MTMTE Skids
    MTMTE Whirl
    IDW Thundercracker
    Krok
    Crankcase and his classic, "Bah!!"
    Misfire
    Rescue Bots Chase

    Skywarp has always been my favorite, but the Insecticons were a cool odd group. I've always had a place for them, and the grasshopper (spacing on his name) just looked so cool to me. Loved his robot face too.

    Back when I was like, 7 or 8, the only character I remembered from watching Armada at six in the morning was Starscream and Alexis because I wanted them to kiss (lol). Upon the first time I saw Transformers: Animated I fell in love with everyone, but in between seasons I did voracious research and came to know my all-time favorite, Beachcomber. In recent years though, I've come to really love Rung and Whirl from MTMTE.
