Just as the title says the purpose here is to share what you think were the best toys of 2011. This was certainly a great year to be a collector, and many different lines put out some great stuff. It was difficult to narrow it down but here is my top ten: 10. Marvel Select Juggernaut Great sculpted detail and paint, fits in with Marvel Legends just fine, doesn't look like a gorilla like the previous toy biz version. 9. Star War Vintage Collection Arc Trooper Commander, AKA-Fordo Definitely a fan favorite, Fordo features interchangeable heads, a nice blaster, and a great face sculpt, and he's f---ing fordo after all. 8. Masters of the Universe Classics Panthor Ever since Battle Cat got released in this line fans were wondering when we would get Skeletors favorite feline. He features a non-flocked purple paint scheme, a remolded head, a unique saddle and a cool looking war helmet. A great addition to the line. 7. Transformers Generations Warpath A great update to the G1 toy, fun transformation, one of the best deluxe figures that Hasbro produced for the generations line. 6. Dc Universe Classics Owlman Not just one of the best toys of 2011, but I would put him in my top 5 for Dc figures produced by mattel thus far. Awesome sculpt and paint, nearly a perfect rendition of the character. 5. Dc Universe Classics Collect-n-Connect Bane I was not collecting Dc figures when Bane first appeared in the Dc Superheroes line, so when I heard that he was to be the Wave 16 CnC figure I was super excited. I would say that this version is a vast improvement over the Dc superheroes version. Finally have a villain to break the bat. 4. Marvel Universe Cable Great paint apps, awesome head sculpt, nice accessories, ankle rockers and Baby Hope. What more could you ask for? 3. SDCC Bandai Classics Thundercat Lion-O Fans who grew up in the 80's have been waiting a long time for a company to finally make an updated version of Lion-O. Bandai did a pretty good job. I prefer the SDCC version because of the metallic accents on Lion-O, a chrome sword of Omens that isn't floppy, and a nice stand to put your sword of omens on display. The paint wash is a bit overdone, but that's my only gripe. He has a great range of articulation and can strike most of his iconic poses from the cartoon. 2. Transformers Masterpiece 10-Optimus Prime Prime was redone in masterpiece form for 2011 to make him more in scale with the rest of the figures such as Grimlock and Rodimus. Takara did a great job with this figure and if you missed out on the first version then this guy is a great choice. 1. Marvel Universe SDCC Sentinel My favorite toy of 2011 by far. This guy just rocks. The SDCC version sports the classic purple color scheme which differs from the retail silver and blue version. Now my x-men team has some baddies to beat up on. The sentinel has a voice built in that sounds just like the 90's cartoon, he has a removable head to Wolverines delight, and is about 16 inches tall. Well that's it for me. I'm eager to see other peoples lists as they are sure to be interesting. Goodbye to 2011, it's been great!
