Nightbeat. He's Humphrey Bogart as a giant robot. Sweet.

Obviously this excludes the current Cumberbatch Nightbeat.

Alpha Bravo, duhdoi!

An actual answer is Windblade, for a variety of reasons that I will eventually list out, but the first point of contact was her being a pacifist interpreter away from home - and I started reading her as I was studying translation during my 8 years in the UK.

It gets longer.

Character: BW Dinobot. Annoying, irascible, inconsistent, way too hot-headed, but so honourable even His DNA couldn't be corrupted - that's scary and impressive in equal measure. Plus Code of the Hero.

Runners up: Optimus Prime, Swoop for being an almost nice Dinobot, Springer for the Han Solo gig, Prowl for the prickery, Op Primal for living up to the name and Rhinox for being almost as good as Dinobot.

Toy: Generations Springer. Validated all my faith in what Generations could be when the Hastak Team were turned loose to make something great. Still a superb and delightful thing after four years.

Current Nightbeat is Idris Elba, you fraud!

There are a lot of them up there, but IDW's Ironfist really takes the #1 spot. He's just a squat Wreckers fanboy who's very passionate about his hobby and who'll happily spend hours gathering and discussing trivia. With a bit of weapons-of-mass-destruction making on the side, of course. What's not to like?

He's also the first character to have made me cry while reading a comic book. So there's that.

Boring answer?
G1 Optimus Prime and G1/IDW Soundwave are both at the top for me.

Not so boring answer(s)?
First Aid and Hotspot, also Optimus Primal, Rattrap and Dinobot. TFA Bulkhead. Oh and G1 Shockwave. I could keep going heh ^^"

Ratchet (Marvel and IDW), soft spot for him in Prime but not a patch on either.
Shockwave - Marvel.
Emirate Xaaron - Marvel UK (kind of an afterthought in the US run and a shadow of his UK wily old buzzardness).
Thunderclash.
Sentinel Prime in TF:Animated.
Grimlock and Springer in Sunbow.

G1 RED ALEEERRRRT~♥♥♥ (to the surprise of literally nobody)

Red was there for me when I was going through a really difficult time mental health-wise, and having a mentally ill character who wasn't a villain really made me feel better. I relate to him so much, and he's just so near and dear to my heart. He's been there for me through so much, and I don't know where I'd be without him. I love everything about him, and just aaaaaahhhh he's my precious robot son and I love him so much. ;u;

My other faves include Roddy (mommy's little trashbag), Drift (best lil' bro), Fort Max (best big bro), Springer (SpringyDing), Jazz (BFF for life), Prowl (grumpy friend), Ratchet (foxy grandpa), Pharma (scumbag husband), Moonracer (other BFF for life), TFA Blackarachnia (sexy spider lady), Grimlock (Grimmy), First Aid (cinnamon roll medic friend), Nautica (autistic princess),Ultra Magnus (Papa Magnus), and the list goes on and on and on.

I can't help it, I love too many of these giant robot dorks. ;u; Give me enough time and I'll decide that they're all my favourite. XD

Anode. I would have probably loved her no matter what sort of personality she turned out to have since excluding Howlback she's drawn with Lug for the first canon trans girl in Transformers and that represents so much good about IDW Transformers right now; but it helps that I honestly really like her character too. The last LL perfectly cements her as a foil and rival to Swerve and god do I hope that continues.

Not someone that has been my favourite in the past, but the more time goes on the more my love for IDW Cosmos grows too. He's a big awkward doofus who just wants everyone to be happy and is caught up in big huge complicated situations and man do I relate.

I was a G1 Starscream girl from the jump. No matter what trouble he got himself into, he always bounced back! As a kid, I guess I kind of...admired...that????

Lately, though, I have to say IDW Ratchet. Because I also crushed on Bones from Star Trek, so I guess Grumpy Medic is my grown up jam?

Oh jings, that's like "what's your favourite vital organ"!

Um....Tracks? Because he's so suave and overly concerned about his looks!
Hot Rod because duh and I mean ever iteration of the character! From the Prime Killer to the "gets his friends killed" version of MTMTE.
Skids! Although this is more of a toy first, character second but as toys go, ooft, that G1 Honda Turbo!

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.
You're in good company. I love Overlord because part of my taste in characters is "absolute trashboy". (See also: Tarn)

But also MTMTE Drift, Megatron, Whirl, Nautica... IDW and G1 Prowl, Springer, Arcee, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker... pretty much any Soundwave and Blaster... I love a lot of these bots, but these top the list. Which is already quite a list. >_>

I love Megatron but it has to be G1 cartoon Shockwave. His tragic loyalty. And to this day It's impossible for me to pick up/transform/play with anything Megatron related without first saying "WHAT IS YOUR COMMAND, MEGATRON?" out loud in my best (awful) Corey Burton voice.
