I love me some Transformer gags, however, Optimus Prime would never be caught dead saying those lines. One could argue that having the morally pure Optimus Prime say these lines makes it more funny, but as a hard-core Transformers fan, I would have to say that I get the feeling that the artist doesn’t have a clue about Transformers and is just playing the gag line.

Which Transformer is most likely to be a flirt?

Since the comic has car puns, our options are limited to Transformers whose alt modes are cars. The most obvious choice is Sunstreaker. Alt mode: yellow 1974 Lamborghini.

Sunstreaker the Transformer flirt

Obsessed with personal appearance. Often retorts with lines like “Hey, that’s a new paint job!” His motto is “They can’t beat the best.” He was described as the ultimate egotist, being notoriously difficult to work with and pair up with anyone else besides Sideswipe, and described himself as the most beautiful thing ever and Cybertron’s greatest warrior.

What do you think? Is Sunstreaker the biggest flirt? You can answer on Quora, Twitter, Facebook, or in the comments on this blog post. I’ll copy your answer and post it on this list:

The Transformer most likely to be a flirt is Sunstreaker. (from Matt of spudart.org)

The Transformer most likely to be a flirt is Optimus Prime. (from Scott Hilburn of Gocomics)

The Transformer most likely to be a flirt is Ratchet. (from Robert of Yahoo Answers)

The Transformer most likely to be a flirt is Tracks or Rodimus Prime. I really want to say Tracks, becuase he’s about as flamboyant as a robot can get. But to be honest, he’d probably rather expect everyone else to fawn over him.

If you go by the comics (which are far richer in terms of characterization), it would have to be Hot Rod/Rodimus from the current IDW comics. He simply has no problem with self-aggrandizement and expecting people to agree with him due to his overwhelming charisma. His leadership style (if you can even call it that) is mostly confidence and insistence that you will really like his idea… eventually.

Isn’t that exactly what you want in a robot pick-up artist? (from Kavinay Kishor of Quora)
