Favourite big guys

"I like Big 'Bots and I cannot lie,
You other TFans can't deny."

Don't look at me like that.

All jokes aside, I do not own any G1 Big Bots. The only things I do own are the Unicron Trilogy Supreme class figures (all of them, sans Energon Unicron). I love them to death. The most fun is having Omega Supreme and Sentinel in a combined city mode of sorts.

But still, I'm getting Encore Omega Supreme, so while its still a few months away, I'm sure it'll certainly be worth the wait.

The only one I own at the moment is Primus if you don't count the MP line or any of the leader class figures. I do have an Encore Omega Supreme preordered though.

Hmm...thats a tough one..since there are so many to choose from...Since I roll the way of G1 exclusively, I'll be listing my favs from that point of view:

Fortress Maximus (given my name on the forum, its obvious he's #1 for me) :SMUG:

Just ordered Cybertron Metroplex from KB Toys' site for $28, w/ free shipping! He'll be another fave big TF I'm sure if I can find another non-official alt mode I like, his actual alt is pretty lame. Anyone have som epics of good fan modes for this one? TIA

I'm surprized Seibertron doesn't have galleries of any big guys. The only ones he has up are Primus, Unicron, and my personal favourite, Optimal Optimus.

He doees:

Cyb Metroplex: http://www.seibertron.com/toys/gallery. ... =0&start=0

Omega Sentinel:

Omega Supreme (G1 and Energon)

Supreme Cheetor
http://www.seibertron.com/toys/gallery. ... =0&start=0

Supreme Starscreasm
http://www.seibertron.com/toys/gallery. ... =0&start=0

Though he is missing a few. like G1 Scorponok, and Fortress, he has the toys, so probably has taken the pictures, just hasn't uploaded galleries for them yet.

Motto: "If it's not fun and you can't win, it's not worth doing."
The big guys are so fun it creates a problem for me to name just one that I like most of all. Certainly, Fort Max has his place, but also, I love what they did with Armada Unicron, the 'King is fantastic, and MP Prime and Megs are both droolingly amazing. (My MP Megs hasn't rusted, so I'm totally cool with it so far). And, I admit my adoration for RiD Omega Prime. Truly HasTak has made some fantastic Big Guys in the past.

I'm a big bot fan, I love em!

So here it is...

Overlord, well worth the $500
G1 Omega, liked him so much I got 2
G1 Metroplex, same deal
:evil: PREDAKING :evil:
G1 Scorponok is friggin increadable
Dai Atlas is alot of fun
Optimal Optimus is awesomesauce on icecream!!!
Omega Prime
Pretty much all the recent Leaders and Supremes excluding Cybertron StarScream and Megatron. Screamer, just not enough bang for the buck, and to many QC issues with Megs.

But realy, in the end, they're all worth getting :D

uh, wouldn't that taste weird? :P

but somehow i question the inclusion of Optimal here, though he may be one the biggest BW figs released (and tarnation, he is one of my faves), he isn't that large enough to be on this A-list with all the Supreme-class figs don't you think?

Sure he does.

HE may be alittle small for this catagory, but he's way more complex and mobile than say Supreme StarScream, who outside of size, has nothing going for him.

Optimal Optimus may be coming in short compair to say Cybertron Metroplex and Primus, but he can still hold his own!
