    I think he's some small tweaks from being excellent. But the lack of come tabs or pegs for certain modes knocks it down for me. I just think the deluxes are overall more solid.

    Honestly, all 4 TR figures in the poll are fantastic. Anyone of them is deserving of this title. HasTak has really outdone themselves with the TR/LG lines.

    With thst said, I voted for Topspin. He's brilliant.

    Sixshot still has his flaws nonetheless. The loose knees really brought it down for a lot of people. I kinda feel bad too since the knees on mine are actually quite solid. The articulation is kinda eh though.

    Honestly, I'd be happy if he won too but I just really love Triggerhappy.

    A lot of these choices just feel like flavor of the months. At least Triggerhappy has been out for awhile.

    Don't bust a gasket! I voted Triggerhappy because he's insanely fun yet simple. I would have voted for Trypticon if I had him in hand. I have Topspin too and I like him buuuut the other two seem more appropriate updates.

    I'm saying Sixshot. The critical design flaws in Trypticon's hips are inexcusable, and I just feel like he lacks something. I think he would be better if they included some nice turrets for Titan Masters, and Brunt. For me, TLK figures are automatically out of the running due to being overpriced.

    Triggerhappy has a commanding lead at the three sites I frequent. He's getting "disqualified" by Hasbro like hell.

    Besides which, this category didn't exist last year, and if it had, no one would have had him yet in order to vote for him by summer.

    You know Hasbro only has rules at all so we don't pull another Erector. :p

    Sixshot. Just because I never, ever thought we'd see a toy of him again.

    Excepting Max and legends class, every single TR figure includes a TM turret you can mount on Tryps. :)

    While I love both figures (and still voted for Triggerhappy!), I'd argue the flaws with Trypticon aren't with the design, but more with the tolerance/materials used and QC (the hips are fine, it's the springs inside that are far too strong)

    It's quite possible the Takara Trypticon may use different springs, & bypass the issue entirely. Can't argue on the lack of Brunt/Radar Dishes etc mind, while not a dealbreaker by any means they still wouldn't go amiss!

    Topspin. Very solid and is superior to Triggerhappy. If Trypticon didn't have the hip issues...

    This is a pretty weak list overall. Sad to think they toys that actually dominate the fandom have no entries on this list. Hard to reconcile being a TF fan and getting to vote in a fan poll while ultimately we rely on a foreign company for our best products and thus we can't vote for them.

    I was torn between Triggerhappy and Topspin, but the latter won out for me by the slightest margin. Honestly, I think it's just because I prefer the combined mode and silver paint of Topspin's guns. Apart from that they're basically equal in my mind.

    Credit to Titans Return, I'd argue that one of its biggest successes has been giving the CHUG deluxe price point something of a renaissance. The figures are substantially larger and more solidly built than what we saw in FoC and T30 and the inventive transformations are just so refreshing after the samey engineering of the CW limb bots.


    ...I do agree that this poll seems kinda dubious when some of these figures are still on the cusp of releasing and have only been handled by a select few people in the fandom though

    Keeping only with the two of the list I own that would be Triggerhappy and Topspin and to me they're both on the same level of how much fun you can get out of a Deluxe figure.

    Triggerhappy wins it for me simply because I always loved combo of his name and character concept, besides I managed to get him into TWO distinct Battletech-styled gerwalk modes with more guns than a common sense dictates. Also he's a Decepticon.

    He's a gun freak named Triggerhappy who was made as a figure coming with eight guns either molded as a part of the figure or held in hands and with free ports to give him even more guns... And articulation allowing him to look dynamic whilst he's gunning down everything in sight. Absolutely hilarious.

    I had an itch to vote for TLK Voyager Prime, but opted to keep my initial vote of Topspin.
