    Round 4! What were the best figures for 2008?? This is a set a lot of people rolled their eyes about, but continues to be popular despite being milked like a cow in later years.

    ... do we really need a new topic for each BotCon on this at once? Wouldn't it be better to do one a day or something?

    ... also, shouldn't it be one of the polls where you can only pic one figure, rather than multiple?

    I said in one of the others.. I was going to do this but I was afraid I'd forgot to finish it. If the mods really hated it, they can delete half of them... If they stay, I'll figure out the results for an "all star" poll next Thursday.

    And I did multiple so people can pick all their favorites. The final "best of the best" poll will only have once option.

    SG Optimus Prime is the only SG figure I even remotely want. And will never have due to aftermarket prices.

    I had a much more interesting post written before the website went down for a few minutes, so I'll just say Rodimus. I sold the boxset, SG bores me.

    Rodimus for me...it works as a Classics "Nemesis" Rodimus so I can repurpose it (always nice when SG figures can do that). Plus I'm a black redeco whore so big surprise there.

    Optimus' deco is one that's never appealed to me (and I usually like purple on Transformers). I love the mold but the deco is the only one that makes me go "meh." It's one factor that's held me back from collecting Shattered Glass in the first place (that so many Unicron Trilogy molds were used when there are now superior Classics molds available for many characters is another reason).

    Goldbug due to my love for the non mirrorverse G1 version.

    Mostly since he is from the Crosswise mold.

    Optimus Prime and Rodimus look to be the clear leaders, but I think Megatron has a chance. Personally, he's my favorite... :D

    Definitely Optimus Prime, he's helped by the fact that the Classics mold was one of the best Prime molds put out at the time.

    I guess I still like Megatron better because of the really nice head and overall deco. Looks like Optimus will be the clear winner..
