Your favorite characters...

Motto: "Never send an army to do a dinobot's job"
Weapon: Twin Sonic Cannons
... Why do you like them?

Today I started thinking about who my favorite are. And when I did, I started wondering: Why do I like 'em so much?

If we skip Optimus and Megatron for obvious, who are your favorite transformers and why?

Japanese HM/MF Scorponok.

He blows up Mars, the freaking planet Cybertron itself, destroys complete cities just to piss off Ginrai and his buddies and damn near kills every Decepticon who helps him.

Rodimus Prime from the Generation one USA cartoon series is my favotite character. because the writters did a great job of creating a 3-D persona. that people could relate to. I also loved the whole massive power rodimus prime had & how strong he was using the matrix of leadership.

Sixshot was my favorite character from the Japanse Takara Headmasters cartoon series. because he was a super cool ninja,he killed ultra magnus. then the character became good & helped the autobots defeat scorponok.

Overlord is my favorite japanese takara masterforce cartoon series character. mainly because he's so powerful. has a unique combination design. has 2 cool persona's controlling him. he was shown strong & powerful & assumed command of the decepticons on earth before black zarak showed up. I did like how overlord's human partners cared about the other human masters under their command.

Deathsauras,for TF Victory. even though he was weaker than star saber in battle. I did like seeing such a cool & ruthless decepticon leader who treated his crew like garbage & use to torture them whenever he felt like it. deathsauras did have his high points like creating that giagntic space ship comet thing that had the potetial to blow up planets from space.

Dinobot,was my favorite beastwars cartoon character. because he reminded me of a klingon version of a transformers. I like how brave & courageous the character was. the writters did a great job fleshing out his 3-D persona & making it evoulve thru out the cartoon series.

Mine would be a tie between Soundwave and Beast Wars Dinobot. Soundwave, because his voice is unique to the rest of them all and he has his own minions. Dinobot because he's just purely a badass

Prowl. Like his MTMTE profile, his Budiansky portrayal and Roche's version. Don't like Furman's whiney version.

Marvel Thunderwing. I liked the idea of a Decepticon with an affinity for the Matrix. Also liked his loyalty for his troops, like his concern for Spinister.

Marvel Scorponok. I like how he had an honourable side.

Animated Rodimus. 5 minutes of airtime and becomes the coolest TF ever.

MTMTE Streetwise.

IDW Swindle.

Marvel UK Soundwave.

Target 2006/Movie Galvatron.

UK Rodimus Prime.

IDW Thundercracker. Always like Honourable Cons.

G1 Toon Starscream.

G1 Toon Ironhide.

G1 Toon Trailbreaker and Hound. They're just nice guys. Not cliched goody two shoes but good lads you'd hit Maccadams with.

Dreamwave Sunstreaker and Sideswipe. Enjoyed their interaction in Dreamwave ongoing. i like how Sunstreaker shows us that not all Autobots are nice guys. Loved his "had to wipe Bumper's tailpipe" line.

DOTM Sentinel Prime.

Furman's Grimlock.

IDW Hardhead.

The Con Medic in Prime.

Movie Bumblebee.

Shockwave.

Marvel/BW Ravage.

BW Inferno.

BW Silverbolt.

BW Megatron.

IDW Magmatron.

IDW Razorbeast.

Thunderblast. TF's Harlequin.

Cybertron Ransack.

Animated Wasp. Truely tragic character. His screams in the chamber always chill me.

Animated Lugnut. Great voice. Love the ridiculous loyal personality.

Animated Starscream.

Animated Prowl.

Animated Bulkhead.

Armada Red Alert.

Armada MTMTE Predacon.

Dreamwave Ramjet. "Bring it on you slaggin' cowards!"

Optimus hands down. But other than him and Megatron: Ironhide,Wheeljack,Ultra Magnus, Omega Supreme, Warpath, Ratchet, Grimlock, Starscream, Soundwave, and Barricade. That's in all continuities by the way.

And with TF:Prime now, I like Bulkhead and Knockout.

Arcee for me. Just Arcee in general, but if I had to be specific, TFA version.

Summer of 2010 I worked at a camp and went by the name Arcee. I carried the TFA toy on my lanyard every day and the kids loved it. The played with her, puzzled over how to transform her and her existence let them know I was a TF fan myself, which helped some of them to open up quicker. Not to mention she lead to many a fun and geektastic conversation.

I had always liked Arcee, but that summer made me adore her. It spawned a cosplay several months later actually. haha. Too bad I didn't have it for camp, but kids I run into when dressed up love it xD I've had several come right up to me and ask for pictures (ie: the TF American Tour, at which I was the only dork dressed up and loved every moment of it xD NYCC had a few too). I think the best was when I'd walk into their line of sight and all of a sudden they'd yell "MOM! IT'S A TRANSFORMER!!" So loud, but so unbelievably awesome xD

(no, I'm not the one who has the full mask and yada yada, if you've seen her cosplay. Haha. I'm kind of a human hybrid of the TFA Arcee)

Motto: "You can run,you'll just die trying"
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Personally I love Soundwave and Grimlock and here's why;

Soundwave: His voice and personality. It screamed futuristic alien robot. That is just basically it,I cannot express how much I love Soundwave.

Grimlock: Okay so I never grew up on the original series during the 80's(mostly because I never actually lived then)but I remember watching a re run somewhere while I was still young and nothing to me was cooler then a giant T-rex turning into a robot who was working for the good guys.

Weapon: Twin Photon Blasters
I have a favorite in each continuity, but I've always been partial to the comics' Grimlock, G1 through Dreamwave. The main reason being is that he's a rebel, and not afraid to act it. I'm also not much for authority and and following like sheep. I like doing what makes me comfortable and feel good, and if it goes against others, who cares. Even if they're in position of power. (This is also probably the reason I work part time at Walmart instead of in management. I don't kiss ass.)

I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

I have to say Galvatron followed up by Starscream.

I liked how Megs degenerated after his plasma bath.The seer brutishness he displayed when he would wreck both dicepticon and autobot on field because of his brutal rages.He even threatened Predaking of all TFS that he will show him no mercy(accompanied by a couple of punches to the chest no lees)!!!

And for poor old Starscream:His voice(All hail Chris) and for the fact that he was one of the most developed chars on the cartoon.He could be brilliant to coward and stupid all at once!

Sky-Byte and Waspinator.
I tend to like "pathetic" characters most for some reason. I guess they're easy to relate to and thus care about.

Motto: "Don't tell me violence isn't the answer! Violence solves a lot of damned problems!"
Weapon: Blunt Force Battle Clubs
Cliffjumper because he was voted "Most Likely to Punch a Decepticon in Their Stupid Face" in high school. He was the guy, I distinctly remember, who was told to just go out and see what was up, not to engage, and the next thing you know, he's got a giant cannon aimed at the bad guys...and ****ing misses. I'm almost convinced he missed on purpose just o he could smash 'Cons faces up close and real personal like. Mean little ****...

Grimlock, for many of the same reasons as everyone else. It's hard not to like the anti-hero with the chip on their shoulder. Bottom line was, you don't mess with Grimlock because he thinks your face is stupid and will eff you up.

Wheeljack because you gotta love a mad scientist who blows up his own lab once or twice a month, and so the Autobots make him keep it away from base. Wheeljack was just as likely to win you the battle as he was to accidently merge you with a fly in a teleporter accident or turn you burnt spot on the ground.
