    Wondering what everyone's favorite year for botcon has been based on the toys. I personally am a gaudy, garish, G2 whore, so I love 2010. Plus Doublepunch as the Energon Scorponok mold for me is just <3

    Edit: (Just to qualify, not only asking about the box sets but the entire toy set for a certain year)

    2010 is the only set I have and I LOVE them! I have to say though, I would actually kill to own all the pre-BW figures from 2006.

    As far as I'm concerned (don't have any), 2011 looks like the best. 2006 was cool, too.

    2011. 2006 comes in a close second, but without beast modes, BW toys just aren't the same to me. However, if 2012 has a LSOTW theme, it will be my all-time favorite.

    Are the Stunticons really that good? Been on the fence for a while whether I want to keep it to one line (Chug) or go back into Animated. Just don't have the money to dedicate to two lines atm.

    If you're into the Animated line they are a MUST HAVE. They just fit so perfectly IMO.

    Generation 2 Redux, based on the strength of the molds used. Breakdown and Rapido are probably my favorite Botcon toys ever.

    this years Stunticons are very cool, but the excitement/anticipation I had for the 2007 Games of Deception set/Alpha Trion will never be beat.

    To be fair, 2005 & 2009 have been the only really bad years. Everything else is pretty much awesome!

    2007 is definitely my favorite.

    2006 is my second fav, I'd really like to track that set down sometime, but it's just so damn expensive.

    2010 is a lot of fun...glad I got it.

    2008 wasn't something I liked at first but it's grown on me a little over the years.

    I have select toys from 2005 and 2009 but overall I thought the sets were pretty forgettable.

    2011 I couldn't possibly care less about. I love the Stunticons but outside of Rodimus, the molds are terrible.

    GEE TOO!

    '05 Ricochet, '08 Megatron and '11 Galvatron are honorable mentions.

    I voted for 2010 on the basis of theme, mold selections, and cohesiveness of the overall set. The 2011 set is nice, but for me it loses points due to the Shattered Glass add-on set. The 2006 set has some great mold selections... but it also has several "meh" molds. And as for the rest of the sets, their themes can't touch Generation 2 for all-around coolness.

    If you add SG Thundercracker and Galvatron into the 2008 set, my decision gets harder. But 2010 still edges out.

    My favorite Botcon figure is STILL Antagony :p 

    That being said I'd go with 2010's G2 set as my favorite (and if Sideswipe and Streetstar had switched places it would have been an unbeatable set AFAIAC). I'd be more than happy to see a G2-three-dux :p  set
