    What WfC/FoC figure would you like to see next from Planet X?

    200+ unique members of the TFW2005 community have participated in multiple rounds of voting among 40 potential figures over a 4-week period to determine the community's answer!

    Votes from the final poll have been tallied. The final poll represented the top 10 figures (or figure categories) determined from potential figures in the WfC/FoC games or the FoC Art book (that were not already made or announced by Planet X).

    The final poll of 10 was determined by
    (a) two semi-final rounds of 20 figures (10 figures each semi-final),
    (b) which were determined by the results of 4 preliminary rounds of voting out of 40 potential figures (10 in each of 4 polls).
    Details of the final poll and earlier rounds are given in the links at the end of this post.

    In the final poll, voters were allowed to vote for up to 5 figures. The final poll was open for approximately two weeks and there was excellent participation from 206 unique voters!

    Here's your top 10:

    #. Figure [Votes]

    1. Shockwave [87]
    2. Bruticus (Onslaught, Brawl, Swindle, Blast Off, Vortex) [77]
    3. Ironhide [75]
    4. Warpath [66]
    5. Soundwave and his minions (Frenzy, Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, etc.) [65]
    6. Jetfire [64]
    7. Slipstream [61]
    8. Insecticons (Hardshell, Kickback, Sharpshot, etc.) [55]
    9. Zeta Prime [51]
    10. Arcee [50]

    All top 10 figures received much attention--at least 50 votes for every figure of the final 10! So, there is clearly high interest in all of these figures. Similarly, there is high interest in all of figures considered across all rounds of voting.

    Details of the final round:
    Final: ★★★VOTE: Planer X's next WfC/FoC figure? FINAL★★★

    Details of the two semi-final rounds:
    Semi-final 1: VOTE: Planet X'S next WfC/FoC figure? SEMI-FINAL 1
    Semi-final 2: VOTE: Planet X'S next WfC/FoC figure? SEMI-FINAL 2

    Details of the four preliminary rounds:
    Round 1: Vote: Planet X's next WfC/FoC figure?
    Round 2: VOTE: PLANET X'S NEXT WFC/FOC FIGURE? Round 2
    Round 3: VOTE: PLANET X'S NEXT WFC/FOC FIGURE? ROUND 3
    Round 4: VOTE: PLANET X'S NEXT WFC/FOC FIGURE? ROUND 4

    Also, I have posted a link to these results on Planet X's Facebook page.

    I was really hoping Zeta Prime and better Insecticons.
    edit: Insecticons are perfect for their Dinobots actually, lots of it.

    I don't understand people voting to make figures that have already been made like Shockwave or Bruticus.

    I'd think they would vote for figures that weren't made- like Ironhide or the Insecticons.

    Man that bruticus if they do it will be such a massive massive waste of time and money. As if we really need another of those sigh.

    Everything else on the list is great though, hope they do all that instead.

    Considering how much of a massive piece of shit the official FoC Bruticus is (both combined and individual bots), I fail to see your point because yes, YES, we do need a better designed and engineered FoC Combaticons/Bruticus.

    I hope they do all in the list, especially Bruticus.

    There are plenty of people waiting for a better FOC Bruticus, as can be seen by the polls.

    What is there right now? The poorly done Hasbro version, with a couple add on feet/hands.
    Or the Microblaze Onslaught (with questionable quality from what I've read), to go with the poorly done limb bots.

    Everyone has their favorites, for whatever reason. It would be nice to see a well done version made.

    I can't speak for Shockwave as I have no interest in him.

    Exactly. All the official figures are shit compared to what Planet X is putting out. A fucking Planet X Bruticus would be epic. Not my first choice but I am not passing up on any of their figures.

    Point to one halfway decent Voyager-sized Shockwave. I'll wait...

    After you show me Ironhide and the Insecticons.
    Sure, some prior made figures might not be up to anyone's liking, but at least they were made.
    Allow some that weren't made yet to be made.

    No disagreement here. There are plenty of FoC & WfC characters that are in dire need of their fig seeing that HasTak never bothered to make an official version. I, for one, am dying to see Slipstream, Demolishor, Ironhide/Ratchet, the other two insecticons, and many more to make an appearance. However, there is definitely room for PX to produce figs of characters that were already released considering the paltry versions the official figs are.

    Yes, technically that is a thing many people would enjoy, but at what cost? my point is why does it have to be such a major priority above so many other better and more worthwhile things?

    Just seems like such a waste to me, a golden opportunity to ask for something new, different, super cool and super under represented or in the case of Arcee still to date not having a decent toy and Slipstream not having a toy period. And people go back to the same old boring, tiring well of characters we already have a million versions of... because of course. sigh

    I suppose if they were to make them all, then sure there's room to make figs that were already made.

    However if it were me it would be after the ones that haven't been. But that's me.

    Aza, you make it sound like this poll is official or something :lol 

    Yes, there are plenty of FoC/WfC characters that need figs, I'm in full agreement. But this poll holds no direct baring on what Planet X will or will not do next. This is completely fan-based.
    If a FoC Arcee, Ironhide, or Warpath is released, only the FoC/WfC niche community will be pleased as majority of the MP collectors don't give a damn about FoC/WfC (especially regarding Jetfire as his FoC incarnation is definitely different from the G1 giant most people want).
    Additionally, why would you see the FoC Combaticons as one figure released in a year? I see them as 6 (cause, well, they are :wink: ).

    PX have done things based on fan feedback before, so it automatically worries me seeing fans jumping for a Bruticus. Here's hoping at least if they do decide to do him the releases can be sporadic. One limb, then do something else, another limb, then do something else again. etc That would be a better way to go about it.

    They aren't a big company so unlike say Maketoys or MMC they can't be working on a million things at the same time. So a Bruticus would obliterate their ability to make much of anything else if they focused on such a thing for a long while just like back when MMC was stuck doing nothing but Feralcons lol.

    I have a feeling Metroplex wasn't on the list because Planet-X possibly already has plans to make him. However I have a feeling they are trying to see just how well both parts of Apocalypse sells first.

    I think making a FoC Broadside would be amazing too. ;) 

    He'd be massive!
