    I'd have to go with the tearaway face on the HftD Fallen repaint, just because it was such a unique gimmick.

    Agreed. Such a great gimmick/feature to work in.

    Double agreed. Great idea and execution. I had hopes that this would be a line-wide 'gimick' for the DOTM line... but that didnt turn out.

    Human Alliance. I actually liked getting humans to go with my kick-ass robots, it's something that's been missing in most previous lines. Plus they were pretty much mini G.I. Joes.

    Probably WFC Soundwave's chest compartment being able to store his gun and shoulder cannon.

    Not being a big fan of gimmicks in general, combined with only just recently getting back into Transformers, I don't have many figures with gimmicks.

    I'm a fan of Mindwipe and Skystalker's intentional/non-intentional combining capabilities.

    Once you have both of these guys, there is a lot you can do - combine them in aircraft mode, make their so-good-it-had-to-have-been-somewhat-intentional bat mode for Mindwipe, individual robot modes and the combined robot mode. The fact that it wasn't advertised or in any instructions just makes it more satisfying that it works so well.
