    I enjoyed RotF most out of anything to be released this year so, for me, that line as a whole would have to be the most "successful". If I had to pick a specific subset of the line, I think the Voyager class, as a whole, has been outstanding.

    Most "unsuccessful", for me, would have to be the TF Club stuff in general this year. I liked Heatwave, but the Club otherwise managed to be an epicenter of failure, in terms of the BotCon set, the Nexus Maximus name screw-up, declining quality of the comic/newsletter, the obsession with 'Shattered Glass', the announcement of Dion as the next freebie, etc.

    What defines 'succes' ? Succes to a few or succes to many ?

    My personal fav happens to be a commercial succes as well : ROTF voyager Starscream. 2nd spot is for my Henkei Ramjet..or was he a 2008 release ?

    Least succesful ? : ROTF side merchandise, such as the BB plasma cannon.

    Most Successful: ROTF Leader Prime.
    This is the Leader figure I daydreamed about in 2007.

    Most Unsuccessful: I think I'll have to agree with the majority, ROTF supreme Devastator was the ultimate letdown of the year.(Toy wise.)

    And most prized transformer I got this year?
    I donno...I guess the Ice cream twins. I can't help it, it's a cool little toy.

    I'm not sure what qualifies as unsuccessful. He is officially sold out in my area. I got the last one to be seen for my son. From a fan standpoint, he was unsuccessful. From a money maker standpoint, I think he was successful.

    My favorite was ROTF Optimus Prime.

    Most Successful: ROTF Leader Prime, for sure

    Least Successful: Um, I guess ROTF Devastator. The only letdown I can think of besides a few other ROTF figures.

    Personal Favorite: Well, Leader Prime is my favorite, but I picked up Leader Megatron from Animated and he's great fun.

    I think the term successful and unsucessful should be used based on the reponses. It's more like favorite and least favorite. ROTF supreme devastator is selling well at the stores and online so it's hardly unsuccessful.

    Favorite: TFU 2.0 Cyclonus
    Least: Tie TFU 2.0 Hot Shot & Cheetor
