Any TLR, plus any of my MF folders, people always want to talk to me about them
I would say that Hasselblad still looks quite exotic for most of the people and a Rolleiflex easily takes a "wow what a beautiful camera".
I agree with Richard that people always talk to me when I am walking in the streets with a Rolleiflex.
Combat Graflex rangefinder.
Without question, the New Mamiya 6 or 6MF.
I can tell you from experience that carrying a Mamiya RB67 in public is a guaranteed conversation-starter. Size matters.

How about a Fuji Rangfinder
Zeiss Super Ikonta, any version.
Large and in charge--Mamiya RB67.
To grab the attention of the public, I would use one of the following:
1. Rolleiflex TLR telephoto version
2. Mamiya TLR with telephoto lenses
3. Twin-Lens Gowlandflex with telephoto lenses (technically a large format camera; not a medium format camera)
