He's decently posable given the age of the mold, has a nice heft to him, Lots of Acc's, and was a frickin' awesome concept before the whole "Nemesis Prime" thing was done to death.
Even now he is the best of the Black Primes IMHO (yes even including Uni. NP)
I highly recomend people to check out the Seibs gallery of him here.
I really wish Ryan would go back to taking his time on his galleries like he used to
DING DING DING!
We have a winner.
See, I knew I liked Bun for more then just being a bad ass!
Here I thought you just liked me for my rockin' curves and sweet ass
My 5 runner-ups would be
1: 20th Aniversary Opimus Prime (not DVD Prime)
Damn good figure. Awesome figure. Only reason he didn't get my first spot was because... well, Even if he is the greatest representation of Prime ever, he is just another Prime in a long line of Primes
2: Masterpiece Starscream(US version)
Even though he's not nearly as bad-ass as I thought he'd be before I bought him, he is still a very good figure.
Plus the stand he comes with makes posing him very fun.
Also like 20th OP he's still just another Screamer in a long line of screamers
3: Universe Razorclaw
I had seen Tigerhawk up close many times and just had never been impressed with him. As a result I never picked up U Razorclaw when he was in stores and ended up getting him online later only because I found him cheap.
Once I got him and started messing with him I was completly won over.
This figure was never meant to have Tigerhawks colorscheme, it kills him. The black purple redeco really brings out everything that is bad-ass about this figure, the only bad part about it is the sensitivity of the spring loaded mechanisms on his back. Still I wouldn't give him up for anything.
4: Cybertron Unicron
I was initially skeptical about this figure... I mean why the hell would you make the original huge bad-ass planet into a friggen deluxe sized tank ?!?! But the figure manages to be a little gem despite the lame cyber-key gimmick.
Even though he's smaller than most of the other main figures in the line he definitly gives the impression of wicked evilness, and the fact that you can rotate two of his 'spears' up to replace his hadns to give him melee weapons is pretty cool.
If this figure was re-released as Bludgeon in Classics I'd scoop it up in a heartbeat.
5: Energon Towline
Not the flashiest figure out there, but he's got really good posability and due to the fact that he has a "sled" he's very free of kibble, making him a great, lean, fighter-type character.
I'm also partial to characters that have what could be semi-autonomous components. That sled gives Towline built in back-up
Honorable mention: Energon Bulkhead, for all the reasons I mentioned for Towline.
