I gotta say my favorite Transformers show was Beast Wars! Even though the computer generated show is a decade old now, it is still fun to watch. The characters were solid, the plot was interesting and most important it had a great sense of humor. I picked up the dvd box sets and watch them all the time. (Beast Machines however was pretty lame). Optimus Primal had the most toys, and Megatron's transmetal dinosaur was my favorite. As for characters, It's all about Waspinator! It never got old watching him get scrapped.
