    Arcording to the poll/tally that i did starting a couple of weeks ago, the favorite movie design is Blackout. In in second place with about half of Blackout's votes was Optimus Prime. Tied for third were Ironhide and Barricade.

    Im not surprised that Blackout was the favorite. He's pretty awesome. Feel free to discuss.

    Im a big fan of bulky/stocky figures and he fits both criteria + his alternate mode is bad ass... ill definitely enjoy the hunt for him.

    Blackout's pretty badass looking, but my personal favorite has gotta go to Barricade. And this is coming from an Autobot guy. Prowls's always been one of my favs and the idea of a baddie cop car is just plain wicked.

    Blackout's popularity is why Hasbro should make a larger more detailed sized figure in the line for him.

    I kinda liked Blackout a little more as a gray resin proto :D 

    For me, Prime edges out Blackout by a bit.

    I get goosebumps when I consider what a "10th Anniversary Movie Blackout" in 2017 could be like. :D 

    He's certainly my favorite "new for the movie character" so far.

    And I do like Ironhide a lot, because I see potential for this to be the definitive version of the character, against which all others are judged in the future.

    I'm sorry, G-what?

    Edited to add: 100th post!

    IMO i see more potential in ironhide and i just fell in love with his design followed by barricade and blackout just because of their detail

    Let's be honest, everyone loves helicopters, police cars, tanks, guns and jets when it comes to TF's. Not surpirsed that Barricade and Blackout are the fan favourites.

    I dunno, Blackout seems kinda "meh" to me. He looks like Armada Cyclonus on steroids, and with the helicopter tail just hanging off his butt, it looks weird. I still think he should have been a dual-bladed helicopter instead, now THAT would have been interesting!
