ROTF Leader Optimus Prime is my all time favorite toy. He was my first "Masterpiece", and was the figure that brought me back into Transformers after the hype from the first movie had died down.

I still have it today, after 10 years of love and appreciation. One of the back wings snapped off, but it still attaches like it used to do (but I have to parts form that piece from now on), but he's otherwise perfect. His electronics still work!

Also, and not to brag, but I have mastered his transformation to the point where I can change him between one mode and the next, and then back again, in just under a minute without a single "I am Optimus Prime!" or any of his swords flipping out.

When I compare him to the first figure I bought after years of having left the brand, CW Ultra Magnus, I can see what people mean when they say they don't make 'em like they used to.

Studio Series is excellent at pandering to us Bayformers fans, and I love the fan service that we are getting from it.

PS, I think ROTF is a pretty good movie, 7/10

YES. I'm on cloud 9 as a Transformers fan right now (particularly as a fan of the movies). I never would have thought we'd see brand new molds for Blackout, DOTM Megatron, DOTM Optimus, or any of these designs and characters that I enjoy so much.

I'm also really glad we have this thread now! :michaelbay:

Finally, a thread dedicated to my favorite bots of all time. My "G1" baby!

My first ever Transformers toy was movie 1 voyager Megatron, and he was followed 1 day later by movie 1 deluxe new Bee (the one in robot mode in the 3rd pic). I love both of them so much, and they are still some of my favorites, even if people don't really like movie 1 Megs design.

So here they all are! I promise there is a method to the madness that is the bot distribution on the shelves.

Not much of a movie guy (had to look up "Bring the Rain"), but I appreciate the effort that went into the toys, especially my TLK Megatrons and Rendsora! The cogmen, of course, are also legendary.

I love the Real-Gear line. They're fun to play with and quite cool. 2007 Dropkick is one of my favorites. A real underrated toy IMHO.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Yup.

A great robot mode. Fantastic detailing, great articulation, a cool and unique weapon, nice transformation and rather kicking truck mode. The 'backpack' is fairly flat, doesn't hinder stability, and isn't just a big chunk, but adds to the silhouette.

I love the way his truck kibble all works out. The truck bed pieces look like pretty dang cool wings, the doors are the primary wings, the tilted truck hood and headlights are really eye catching, and he ends up looking very muscular and built.

I love him. I'm really glad Burn decided to sell him to me!

Legion VW Bee is a joy to hold. He's such a fun little guy!

I wish they had made Legion versions of Shatter and Dropkick in car mode

Ransack. He is dripping with personality. And I mean, seriously, has there been anyone else with a flipping WW I-era biplane mode?!

A damned shame, then. And yeah. We need more for Ransack to lead a squadron of them!

I like ROTF too and for me it's one of the highlights of the film series. I didn't mind the Mikaela-Sam romance and in fact I'm still mad at Steven Spielbutthead over Mikaela being abruptly replaced by Carly in DotM on account of Spielberg getting his knickers in a twist over Megan Fox's remark about Bay (which Bay himself thought was funny, from what I've read).

Speaking of Bumblebees, Battle Blade Bumblebee says "Bring it!"

ROTF Optimus is indeed amazing. He's great to play with and a feat of engineering, and looks badass:
