    Who are you looking forward to the most? Obviously, this list includes only the figures we know about (I threw Slicer in there too).

    I wanted to choose G2 Sideswipe, but I felt I'd vote on what's actually been announced (Clench). Also, would have voted for 'G2 Ramjet to be announced'.

    I think a better question for me is which I dislike the least.

    Sky-Byte. His name is Sky-Byte. With a "Y". As in Megabyte.

    But I voted for Breakdown. He's just too cool.

    I vote for Street Star/Wise. That's the only one of the box set of interest to me as is. I can settle for this "redux" of him because his G1 form quite possibly would not be different enough from Prowl for me. However I do like that Breakdown is getting a new head and wished that he'd be made availible in thee future in his G1 colors. Then I'd probably be all over him as well. And I do look foward to possibly getting my hands on a few Sharkticons/Gnaw for troop building.

    I'm operating under the assumption that they won't use a mold that's been used recently for a Botcon figure in another set. Otherwise, I'd be with you. I figure Sideswipe is fairly likely given that they're already going to be using that mold for Breakdown (and they sometimes use the same mold twice in the same year). Maybe not, though.....

    I like Pyro and Skybyte, however since I can't afford to go to BotCon I won't be able to get my hands of those two figures...

    So, I thought I'd bump this thread now that we're relatively sure we've seen all of them (in alt modes, at least).

    Here's my "most to least fav" list.

    Double Punch
    Spark
    Breakdown
    Rapido
    Clench
    Gnaw
    Scorch
    Cindersaur
    Sky-byte
    Slicer
    Streetstar


    The top 6 are just complete win in my book.

    Clench would probably be on top, but I'm still slightly disappointed that there weren't any big truck molds they could've used for him, but taking him on his own merits, he still looks great, and the bot mode is sufficiently powerful for him.

    Then you've got Scorch and Cindersaur, who both look cool and I'm glad to get, but are kinda out of place, both character and moldwise.

    Then Sky-byte. Another figure I like on its own merits -- the colors are great, and the character is a funny choice -- but he fits in even less than everyone else. If this were a different theme, he'd get much higher marks.

    Then Slicer. Good character choice, but I'm not crazy about the mold, especially when an arguably better "Wheeljack-esque" mold exists. But I think I understand why they went with this one.

    And lastly Streetstar, who, again, is fine on his own merits. He's actually pretty sharp and sleek looking. But, he is by far the most mundane figure in a set that's not meant to be mundane.

    I'll tell you Thursday night. :D 

    But I will say the Decepticons are the winners again this year.
