Favourite Transformer!

Post by tainkirrahe » Fri Feb 02, 2018 6:53 pm

Well hey, it's the most basic of questions but it's also a great way to meet and greet, so - who's your all-time favourite robot that turns into a thing?

I'd like to remain as predictable as ever and go for G1 'toon Megatron. He's a special kind of ridiculous who is constantly sabotaging his own plans, and he has the worst takes on pretty much everything.

OK, also Thundercracker and Soundwave because they love animals.
And Starscream because I relate.

Beast Wars Megatron, yesssss.

Lugnut, Tarantulas, Waspinator, Dinobot, comics Shockwave, and many more are up there too.

Uh. Depends. I relate Nautica a lot, so at a push, her?

Also, IDW Arcee, because she's a misanthropic old trans lady who murders people, and honestly? Goals.

Definitely Knock-out.

I get confused with all the continuity, and he doesn't appear enough to contradict himself!

Also, Prime was my reintroduction to the whole shebang post-Beast Wars and he is easily the standout character from that show.

He's delightfully egotistical, outrageously flamboyant, and effectively dumps the 'cons to pursue his own non-genocidal interests, making him basically the first NAIL I was aware of.

The "G1" Jetifre in all his incarnations (except Kronos, because f that toy), UT Jetfires, even Energon's, and I'm indifferent to movie Jetfire.

G1 Wheelie, Sunbow Megatron, or any Arcee. It's a tossup.

I like Shockwave as he was in the Marvel comics - and their version of the Dinobots origin being tied into him is the only one I will accept - but then I also like Scourge, because he has robot facial hair and claws. I don't think I can choose. There are others too. I don't want anyone to feel left out.

Currently Nautica, but I have a huge bucket of love for that "wee-lad-doing-his-best" Scrounge. Not big, not tough, but doing the best he can with that magic arm of his!

Soundwave, in all variations, with all his minions. Then Smokesniper, obviously. Then.. well, minicons generally. Gotta catch em all.

Probably God Ginrai and Overlord.

...yes, I know, liking Overlord is probably heresy around here. I dunno. I just really like their designs and stuff.

I think it's fairly obvious but other than my sweet and innocent boy rung it's probably fire convoy because he's rad. And after that, black convoy because he has a great design in a great colour scheme.

I can't keep it to one. Shockwave, Grimlock, BW Dinobot and IDW Swerve are the top characters, but there's so many in the franchise to appreciate.
