I saw Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and it made me wonder who everyones favorite Transformer is. I guess, since I am asking, I will kick it off.

My favorite Autobot is Ultra Magnus
I always liked how Magnus was a legit badass and could do whatever needed to get done, but he still always doubted himself. As a kid, I always thought that was cool.

My favorite Decepticon is Starscream
Starscream was always such a devious SOB. Always looking out for himself and ready to shoot Megatron in the back. What's not to like?


I know, I know, that's two, but I did narrow it down to one from each side of the civil war. Cut me some slack! So how about you?

Hm... I know Rodimus Prime was supposed to be a powered-up version of Hot Rod and all, but... it also appears to me that he became a self-doubting wus like Magnus the minute he put that matrix into his chest! The third season of the cartoon spells this out in detail. So while it was cool for me to see Rodimus being able to totally wipe the floor with lots of heavy-hitting decepticreeps, I much prefer him in his original form as Hot Rod.
Hot Rod had the speed, the agility, and more attitude than any one decepticrumb could handle! He was also the first autobot (as far as I can remember) whose guns were mounted on his arms, and thus, he could never be separated from his firepower, and always had that extra free hand… which he could turn into a circular saw! I say let Prime be the most powerful badass leader on the Autobot team. As far as leaders go, he’s my favorite of all time.

Let’s be fair. Hot Rod wasn’t always around. So before Hot Rod, my favorite autobot would have been Iron Hide. He was always taking the major hits and saying the badass lines… He only “talked it” the way Prime could “walk it,” but he did pull far more weight than most autobots in the first two seasons anyway. And besides, It is difficult to find one episode in those first two seasons where Iron Hide didn’t display some new hidden skill or piece of gadgetry. He even seemed more useful “in a pinch” than Wheel Jack most of the time, which is a huge oversight for the makers of the cartoon, and also a crying shame. Even into the first of the new movies, he’s got the “cannons” to deal with anything. When the second one comes out on the silver screen, I am confident my verdict will stand.

As far as decepticons go, I’m not sure anyone will name someone besides Star Scream or Megatron/Galvatron… Starscream would have been my favorite by far, but why focus on the obvious choices? I’m gonna’ go ahead and say Rumble. Sure, he couldn’t beat Sludge in a ground-stumping contest, but he’s got everyone else beat by a long shot! And have you ever noticed the idiocy of the things he says? The dude’s head is a pure titanium brick! And let’s not forget his ability to sneak into small spaces… or beat-up on humans hand-to-hand, or ride Blitzwing’s tank form like a medievil lancer! Rumble gets my mention for his stellar combination of raw, destructive force and unparalleled powers of comedy! One need only watch the episode in Season 2, Part 2 called “Sea Change,” to appreciate where I’m coming from!

Very cool choice! Cosmos was a very versatile transformer! I didn't much care for his voice acting in the series, but his character overall played a pivotal part on many outer space missions!

And let's not forget (while he didn't land many devastating blows reminiscent of Prime) Cosmos was probably one of the most durable transformers EVER! Let's all count on one hand the other Transformers who were thick-skinned enough to make a round-trip straight THROUGH the earth's atmosphere without any signs of thermal breakdown whatsoever...

Also, he had intricate diagnostic tools for space, and he payed attention to detail much like Perceptor. He may not have been much of an inventor, but is intelligence was stellar! And let's face it... He'd be out of a job if "stellar" wasn't somewhere in his autobot resume. Laughing Cool
