    Which is the best TF this year that was available for mass retail? I've Narrowed the list down to what I'm guessing are the most popular. And I'm not including the new TRU Universe exclusives because some people haven't had a chance to get them yet.

    (Sorry if your fave isn't on the list. If he's not, just do a write in vote.)

    Universe\Henkei Hound and Cyclonus will be two top choices, I'm sure. Longarm\Shockwave from Animated as well [not really sure if he came out this year or in 2008, though].

    Out of all the toys that I have bought so far this year, Cyclonus. Darkwind is a close second.

    Animated Shockwave. I still can't believe that all 4 modes are great.

    I casted my vote for Wreck Gar. Ever since I found out they were making him, I was chomping at the bit for him. And he is everything I wanted and more. But Inferno is definitly a close second.

    For the love of nature take Mighty Muggs off that poll. Unless you are trying to demonstrate how they fail you are just setting Mighty Muggs up for embarrassment. If Mighty Muggs count as "Transformers" you might as well include posters and comics in that list, they transform as well or better than Mighty Muggs.

    I had to go with Shockwave because Stormcloud was not provided.

    Damn man I didn't vote in the poll as I'm torn with three choices i.e TFU/Henkei Inferno, TFU/Henkei Hound & TFA Shockwave.

    Edit: I finally voted TFA Shockwave due to the impressiveness & all round playability of all 4 modes.

    Come on, show 'em some love. I added them because I noticed the topic of Mighty Muggs comes up alot on the sightings boards. But everyone has their own opinion, and I thank you for yours. :)

    Some of the figures on that list were released last year (Cyclonus, Hound, grey TFA Shockwave, Inferno, TFA Swindle), although a couple were very late in the year. TFU Cyclonus is one of my favorite figures ever, but I got it at the end of last year around Christmas.

    Of the figures I've purchased that were released this year, I think the one I've enjoyed the most has been TFA Samurai Prowl. Excellent, extensive remold and a very fun toy. However, I'm fully expecting it to be knocked off the pedestal once the RotF stuff comes out in force.

    Animated Blurr.

    But out of your list, I'd have to go with Universe Cyclonus.

    I realize some people got some of these last year, but for the most part, they weren't available till late January or early February for most of us. I give you props for scoring them early.

    I also agree that he is cool. I love his new armour.

    I only own three from that list, Shockwave, Cyclonus and Swindle. And in the end, Swindle got my vote, just because he's the one I constantly find myself fiddling with :)
