    Personally, I voted for:

    WFC - Optimus Prime
    Classics 3.0 - Blurr (was really thinking about Thrust cuz he does kick much ass [excellent repaint Hasbro :thumbs2: ], but I already have the Gentei version... but, I WILL own this version also).
    HTFD - Seaspay (I dig Banzai-Tron a lot, but he is a repaint... that I also plan to own)

    I elect to abstain from the entire poll on the grounds that Leader Starscream isn't included and my anticipation for him is far above and beyond every other toy (TF or otherwise) released this year combined for me.

    Why are the HFTD options so limited?

    Anyways, for Generations, it's Drift, barely. I wanna say Straxus because I care more about that character, but Drift is an incredible design. Can't wait to get him.

    For WFC, Soundwave. His robot mode may be a tad wonky in the back, but otherwise he's got a good robot mode and an utterly BOSS truck mode.

    For HFTD, Hailstorm. I live his "brutal" look and the huge missile launchers.

    WfC: Soundwave. The closest thing to a Classics Soundwave I've seen yet.

    Generations/Universe 3.0: Thrust. Drift is still very high on my want list, but I want that Thrust damnit! He's got the Henkei toolings, something I very much desire.

    HFTD: Seaspray. Like in the case of Bludgeon, movieverse be damned this is Classics Seaspray!

    WfC Soundwave: love the alt mode so I'm looking forward to that one the most (but I DO love all the other ones too!)

    Drift

    Banzai-Tron..what can I say, I don't own Bludgeon yet so this figure is 'new' to me.

    I don't understand how a person can choose. From what I have seen so far both Optimus and Bumblebee are off the charts of awesomeness. I haven't really looked at Megs or Soundwave yet, but I'm guessing they are just as cool as the other two.

    As far as Generations goes, I really want a Red Alert and Thrust. The Drift mold looks fantastic so I can't wait to get my hands on him and Blurr. I haven't seen Staxus yet, but I doubt I will not like him.

    And for the HFTD. I'm really excited for Sea Spray and Payload is close too. Not sure about Banzai-Tron. I don't want to ruin Bludgeon by picking up a second version of the mold. But if the colors look good in person, I doubt I will pass.

    As a whole and if they are all staring me in the face and I only had 20 bucks and I had to choose either a voyager or two deluxes, I would take WFC Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. I'm not into the video game hype at all but these two as toys look really sweet. Then Seaspray I'd get the next week. :)

    Only two choices for HftD? Where's Sidearm Sideswipe and Hailstorm and all the scouts?

    I'm not overly psyched about any of them. To be honest nothing we've seen yet is quite on the level of the better Universe figures.

    Sideswipe/Sunstreaker, Hound, Prowl/Silverstreak.

    Blurr is the only figure on that list that I would buy for the purpose of displaying it. The rest I'd buy as kitbash fodder. Red Alert to Breakdown, Thrust to generic Seeker or something, etc.

    Well I didn't read before a I voted so I went with Thrust, Red Alert and Blurr because out of the choices those are probably the only one's I will actually buy. Maybe Sea Spray, however the others I am not anticipating that much at all.
