For me, it's:
-God Ginrai

Can't say for comics since I haven't read them.:(:o

-Operation Cassette
-Scramble City (bonus)
-The Mystery of Planet Master

I have a more broad opinion, so many will probably have different ones to me.:p;)

Can't really buts out a top 3,

But best toy

Best Cartoon, tricky one, as I really enjoyed MasterForce and Victory quite a bit.
Victory wins due to the kick ass fight between Dezasarus and Star Sabre at the end.

COmic book?
Um, I like the compilation of comics that I picked up that is from some TV magazine apparently. Mainly because they actually provide some story for the Return of Convoy series. And a rather creepy looking Megatron!

I've gotta say Headmasters for me :)

I can't say that I've read or even ever seen any Japanese Manga from this era. :o

Cartoon Episodes/stories

Headmasters: Explosion on Mars! Scorponok Appears - (The unveiling of an awesome character & a favourite figure of mine :cool:)
Headmasters: The Death of Ultra Magnus - (Fairly self explanatory, the battle between UM & Sixshot is just hilarious but so too the ensuing funeral! :p)
Headmasters: Seibertron is in Danger! (Part 2) - (Rodimus, Kup & Blurr do something at the end of this episode that is completely bewildering & hence, entirely amazing! :p:D)
