That would depend on what exactly you're looking for in a figure. I can only really give my views on two: the first Movie and Dark of the Moon ones:
2007 Movie Voyager
Admittedly, he cheats a lot in the transformation for the sake of the robot mode and truck driver gimmick, but I still like him. Robot mode is slender, no unnecessarily distracting vehicle parts, but he does have a large backpack and the legs are inaccurate to the movie model. His weapons integrate rather well, being made of the gas tanks and smokestacks, the missiles look like the kind from Crash Test Dummies. Hair triggers on mine. Truck mode is decent, again off-model with the back cabin, but on the flipside, no visible robot mode parts.
All in all, he's not a must-have but serves his role as an "alternate version" rather well.
Dark of the Moon Voyager
Compared to the first movie one, a better figure in some aspects. Robot Mode is way more accurate, no backpack, and better balanced. Arms are a problem due to the way they bend and the wheels just get in the way in forward movement. Transformation cheats less, is similar to Prime: First Edition, but the front of the truck is a bit of a mess. Have to give credit for the legs though.
If you can, look for the Japanese version with the trailer. Costs a bit more, but you get a "clean" version without all the distracting solar panels and armor parts.
I've heard good things about Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, and if you have RotF Leader Class, you pretty much have HftD Battle Blades nailed.
