    Here we go. To gauge the interest on the BotCon toys since there's so much RAGE over whether or not the majority likes or dislikes them based on the images.

    So here we go.

    Option 1 - Love 'em, will buy them

    You think the toys are great and you plan to buy them to add them to your collection.

    Option 2 - They're okay, will buy them

    You are more of a completionist and while the toys may not appeal to you, these are BotCon exclusives, and you want them for your collection

    Option 3 - Not sure yet

    You don't know if you like them or if you'll buy them.

    Option 4 - Don't like 'em, will buy to sell

    You don't like the toys, but you plan to buy them to sell them at after-market prices for whatever reason.

    Option 5 - Hate 'em, won't buy them

    You think these are some pretty bad toys, to the point you can't justify spending the money on them.

    I like them but, I won't buy them due to the lack of money.

    Honestly, I would prefer separate polls for each exclusive because some are good, like Tracks, Treadshot, and Overlord, while others are garbage like Magnus, Soundwave, and Metalhawk.

    I'm buying, but mostly because I'm going to Botcon. I'll sell to recoup some of my costs of attending. Though, I do plan to keep at least one bot in the set for my collection. Maybe more from the attendee sets ( once we see them ).

    I don't care for the theme, I don't care for the mold choice, the remold choices, and some of those colors like Magnus...ugh.

    This would have been the perfect time to whip out Scourge or something as it was heavily requested and was a seemingly a shoe in since we first saw the mold.

    These aren't for me, not that I could afford them, but hopefully this strikes a niche that does care for these choices. I just see a lot of hate brewing. More so than I saw for Animated, which I thought was going to be the shitstorm of all shitstorms.

    They don't offend me in the way they seem to do some others, but they don't interest me, either.

    I went with "Not sure" because I may end up picking 2 or 3 of them up. Some I just don't want.

    I picked not sure yet, but if there had been an option for you feel "meh" about the toys but are buying them because you are going to botcon and it's set up so you have to in order to get access to everything at the con I would have chosen that.

    True, one thing that seems to be universal is that every year's set is rarely a home run, usually theres one or two good ones and the others are just filler.

    Well as much as I can sympathize that it seems to be a lackluster set, I am enthused just because it will be my first Botcon. Going there with my son so this set will be worth more to me memory wise despite the characters they toss in.

    I want Tracks/Road Rage. Gonna be relying on helpful bros in the Junkion Exchange for that one. I don't like any of the other figures, but I'm also not hot pissed about any of them either.

    Gonna be waiting on Pre-orders for Runabout and SG Drift to go up and hoping next year's boxset turns out more appealing.

    but unless you buy them from someone other than Funpub, you won't get to pick and choose what you want to buy. The poll is meant to see who is going to buy the set, the whole set.

    I love them, but I don't have the money to buy them right now. So, I'll probably try and buy them off of either TFW or ebay after Botcon.

    Truth to tell, I chose #2. I like them fine but in my opinion, they aren't the best set FP has released. Don't get me wrong, I love the whole Shattered Glass thing. It's a fun spin that have given us some awesome figures like the Jetfire colored Starscream, Drench colored Sideswipe, Action Master Thundercracker, and re-purposes other figures that didn't have a real good place in a given collection like the White ML Soundwave.

    The way I see things is that not everyone is going to think any one given set is the best. Some loved the '07 set and others hated it. Personally, my least favorite is the Wings of Honor set. I thought last years was pretty good but not everyone likes Animated. If I were to make a set, I'd make a Diaclone vs Microman and make a number of the E-Hobby characters. This years set touch on a couple of them so I'm good with it.
