With the end of the current Transformers universe, I’ve been spending some time delving into the back issues and/or the summaries at TFWiki.  Having been around at the dawn of Transformers back in ’82, I’ve had a lot of interactions with our transmogrifying alien robit pals, and I gotta tell ya: Some of them are pretty neat.  My favorite Transformer for many years now has been the mighty Omega Supreme, who makes not a lick of sense in concept or execution, but is somehow still amazing.  There’s also probably some sort of study to be done on the question of why my favorite characters tend to be among the largest ones, but either way, it leads us to today’s Iaconian query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that “None Of The Above” is generally not an option for the MS-QOTD, asking: Who is YOUR favorite Transformer?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. From G1 it is a tossup between Soundwave and Wheeljack. I loved the cassette bot concept and Wheeljack’s “mad scientist” vibe.

    In terms of the toys, I think I’ve got more versions of Grimlock than I care to count, even the potato head one.

    And from the IDW run, I gotta go with Rung, the six year mystery that I did NOT see coming.

  2. Devastator for me. Robots that smoosh together into a bigger robot is a rad thing, and I had a lot of fun turning my Constructicons into Devastator (although, looking back, the way they connected was kind of a wobbly mess. lol)
