    I tired something like this last year & it went pretty good.
    So I figured I'd try it again.
    What were some of your favorite Customs of 2009?

    So many great ones and picking the best is tough.

    I supposed Animated Omega Supreme by Anemis is my top pick. A scratchbuild, huge, and keeping the animated aesthetic is just incredible. The Animated Grandus by Primus is a close second to me...

    RodimusDawg's PowerMaster Prime and Scourge are two that immediately come to mind. I won't be tackling the PM Prime (I have other plans using a KO SC Kit), though I've dropped my initial plans for Scourge and adopted what he's done with the Energon Sharkticon mold.

    I'm sure I'll be popping in with a post as I remember things.

    EDIT: While I think the only project completed within the year by Anemis was the Animated Omega Supreme (and I'm not entirely a fan of Animated), his work in general is awe-inspiring.

    Maybe try to keep it to your top 5?
    Menchoys predacons get all 5 from me. Anemis's animated Omega gets honorable mention. There were a few breakthroughs on The toy front too. Fansproject's ultra magus upgrade is one of my favorite toys ever.

    I haven't been around long enough to have seen all of 2009's customs, so I'm not going to enter, although there have been some customs that WOW-ed me, like autobotx23's Bruticus, Mench0y's Predaking or Ryan Uybengkee (sp?) his Defensor. I love combiners. But some bashes on smaller scales, like the powered-up ROTF Megatron by Solrac333 had a LOT of charm with me. These aren't entries, but I wanted to make some honorable mentions.

    RainChang's Galvatron just edged in, and is probably my favorite of the year all-around.

    Translation: "Too bad I can't show any sneak peeks of what I'm working on, but none of these guys' work come even close to what's on my shelf, and I am currently copying everything on my shelf in order to sell them on Ebay and make money. So, I am basically using this thread as an effort to try and drum up interest in my future auctions."

    Quite a humble fellow.
