The vehicon mold is very cool, as is the Jet Vehicon retool if you can import one.

Other than that Bulkhead is decent, Wheeljack is top of the list IMHO.

Prime is good. I'm still debating on getting Megatron. I like the Darkness version,but the mold just does not do it for me all that much.

And definitely FE Cliffjumper.

I feel that Ratchet is probably the best in the line. His bot mode anyways.

Then Arcee and Wheeljack (also Dead-End). The vehicon mold is actually pretty sweet. Get the flying one if you can though.

Wheeljack is quite good. Solid, clever engineering means a decent-looking futuristic vehicle mode and a nearly kibble-free robot mode. Plus he's got actual hands! And feet with little ankle joints! I don't know when they decided that should be more common but I've been away for five years and am more used to little fist squares with a hole in them. Maybe I'm easily impressed.

More realistic hands have been around for a while. Many Movie toys lacked hand-held weapons and thus got posed fingers in charismatic gestures. Then the Generations/Reveal the Shield and Prime series made figures which could still hold 5-mm peg weapons with nicely sculpted open hands.

Just ordered a Deadend a few day ago. Excited to get him. I might even get a Wheeljack too, since the figure looks so well constructed.

If you're a completist, I suggest getting all the in-show characters. Aside from that, Soundwave, Wheeljack, FE Bulkhead, FE Bumblebee, FE Optimus, PRiD Arcee, and Rumble are some of the line's best IMO. Breakdown is worth it too, if you can afford the import.
