    Name your top 3 MMC Reformatted Molds, and why!!!

    So just redid my shelf for my MMC Reformatted line, and sold some, and realised, damn, i just love the below 3 molds so much, they are my definite top 3 ever owned on my side (and unfortunately i dont have Skylynx or the Cat mold)

    1) MMC Kultur/Tarn
    2) MMC Drift / Deadlock
    3) MMC Whirl/Turben

    So MMC Tarn has become my #1, and that is because of the articulation that i am using, just looks so natural well posed with the ab crunch and great looks and size, he is the leader of my CHUG collection.

    My #2 is the Drift / Deadlock, and currently have 2 of this mold, and he looks very sharp. Wish i had that the asterisk Alpha from TFCon.

    My #3 is the Whirl mold, very fun and looks really great.

    And after this, those Feralcons, eventhough very old, are my favorites, followed by Commotus and the Azalea mold.

    #1 Carnifex - my first big bad bot
    #2 Commotus - so solid you can barely tell it transforms and the alt mode is just as good.
    #3 Drift - same reasons as above.

    1.) The Tarn mold (mold itself) may be my favorite from MMC so far — but only on Roller and Thunderclash. I still really like their Tarn, but as RVDA mentioned; he is indeed of a do-over.

    Compared to the Flame Toys figure, MMC Tarn looks really bland and really inaccurate in certain areas.

    2.) The Drift/Wing molds

    3.) Overlord ... and only because Byrin and/or whoever else was mostly responsible for smoothing over most of Cassy Sark’s crappiness.

    Carnifex. Amazing. Eye-gouged smiling face possibly the best facesculpt a Transformer has ever had.

    Tyrantron, these days with cat, new hat and Shapeways cannon. First robot I bought and still one of my favourites.

    Aero Alpha. Good solid IDW 1 fun with tons of shelf presence. All of the Drift mold mates are great but Wing is just so darn pretty.

    Nero Queen. Badass original character purple lady.

    HoS Seekers are not Reformatted I think. They are part of the Knight Morpher line.

    Same. Only missing that impossible to find Awakening version. Considering DIYing one from a Starscream.

    I don't follow IDW so I have no idea as to the characters they represent but I collected almost the entire line up through 2018 before selling it off and I always liked these the most:

    1. Carnifex
    2. Commotus
    3. tie: Vos or Azalea, especially Vos's posability (but not his fragility) and Azalea's con-exclusive repaints

    The Heart of Steel seekers were pretty cool as well but are Knight Morpher pre-Reformatted. :)

    I haven't bought anything reformatted in a while, but from what I have my top three are the only ones I really like.

    Anarchus is their most solid and accurate design I own.

    Kultur is as solid and accurate, but I deduce points for not giving him wheels to roll on in alt mode.

    Commotus looks good and is pretty fun, but it has some of reformatted's typical thin panel folding that I'm not fond off.

    Dude back in the day they couldn't give those things away. Just checked my eBay history, I paid $63 at auction in 2014 for an MISB one.

    Just goin by the figures I've owned:

    (1) MMC Talon/Divebomb - Hands down probably my favorite 3rd Party Figure ever. From his aesthetics to simple transformation and his basic articulation is all you really need to pull off beautiful poses with this figure. Also that wing span is very impressive.

    (2) MMC Calidus/Hot Rod - My last purchase from the Reformatted Line and I didn't know what I was getting myself into. Saw it on eBay with Zero bids and said "Why Not.!?" And won it for $50 and am glad I did. Very cool and fun figure to flip back and forth. Also his Alt mode looks great and reminds me of the Batmobile lol.

    (3) MMC Azalea/Arcee - This figure is a love and hate relationship lol. I remember 1st opening it and feeling underwhelmed as the Feralcons we're all hefty and she felt like a Gundam model as she was light. Then the Transformation was horrible the 1st going but over the years I learned and it became more and more pleasant. Her articulation was crazy good for that time and I remember always getting her in action poses and she pulled them off with ease. Truly do love this figure but unfortunately I Sold her off just last year and now I have the urge to look for her again.
    Cheer's!

    Hmmmm; this is a hard one.
    1) Ultio - the Senator Ratbat design is just great
    2) Magna/Inventa - I'm counting these as one purely because they're kinda meant to be one. If I have to count one separate, Inventa.
    3) Collisus - that Thunderclash deco is just gorgeous.

    The Calidus mold almost made it on here but then I remembered Magna Inventa.
