Beast Wars is, apparently, one of the best regarded Transformers series. I'm only just getting into them, so I'm far from an expert. I personally like mechs with hands, but that's because I like anime and all the BS that goes with it. Making the robots look "realistic" sucks the fun out of them for me.
Humanoid Mechs are realistic though, if in the universe in which they exist they can be controlled directly by moving your own arms/legs then it would make the most sense
Shows like Gundam Wing are my childhood nostalgia so yeah large humanoid mechs are like my favorite thing in terms of Sci-Fi... that said I do also love the Western Style of Walker Mechs as well.
Edit* And sorry, not my intention to derail this topic or anything...
