    Just like the title says: In your opinion which Universe Deluxe is the best of 2008?

    I'll limit the poll to Universe Deluxes that were actually released in 2008. That means that wave 5 will be left out because it probably won't be here until 2009.

    So vote away.....and please post why you feel the figure you voted for is the best.

    I voted for Cyclonus. Awesome looking alt mode......'bot mode is even more awesome. He also has a fun transformation. I'm also a sucker for Cybertronian alt modes. The paint scheme/grey plastic is NOT as bad as some posters are making it out to be.

    The fact that he is a Targetmaster and comes with Nightstick is just icing on the cake.......Cyclonus is the best Deluxe of 2008 and one of THE BEST Universe/Classics Deluxes EVER IMHO.

    Even though he isn't a deluxe. I pick Onslaught.

    He is dominant to say the least. Sweet alt mode. Proportioned Robot mode. Plus the day i picked him up me and the kids to a nice back country drive to get to toys'r'us.

    Of the deluxes though i have to go with acid storm. Like all the seekers, easy but nice transformation. doesn't look bad either.

    I haven't found wave 4 yet, so I'm casting my vote for Sunstreaker. Very nice looking toy in both modes and very cool to fiddle with. I like Sideswipe a lot, too, but he has some criminally floppy joints that make him a slightly lesser figure in my eyes.

    I just got Hound and Cyclonus, but haven't had a chance to open them. Therefore, my vote goes to Sideswipe. He's a great figure all around. My other favorites include Acid Storm and Silverstreak.

    I voted Sideswipe, he's just so damn good!(well except for the autobot insignia on mines chest, it got f'ed up when applied or something and is angled/deformed)

    Out of the ones I have:

    1. Tie between Sideswipe & Galvatron
    2. Prowl
    3. Tankor

    I'm sure Cyclonus will take the number one spot once I have him.

    Sunstreaker wins it for me.

    I might've voted Cyclonus, but the mismatch color is a turn off. Hello, Henkei.

    I'd say Cyclonus but he's not in Canada yet and I'm waiting on the Henkei regardless. Therefore Sunstreaker get's my vote as he and Sideswipe have been the only real impressive toys to come from Universe/Classics 2.0 so far. Not that the lines been all that bad, just underwhealming.

    I voted for Kodos.

    I mean, Prowl. I find Sideswipe and Sunstreak to be better figures, and Hound and Cyclonus are genious, but I guess I've just always wanted a decent car robot with door wings.

    Toss up between Sunstreaker(Sideswipe) and Prowl for me. I have the Henkei versions for both and didn't encounter any QC issues.

    As for reasons why, I like how Prowl looks and Sunstreaker's transformation is awesome.

    I just got Henkei Ironhide and he looks cool as well. But man, the head looking down really irks me and his transformation is crap. As for the other figures, I don't have them yet(Hound and Cyclonus) or I don't want them(Galvatron, Tankor, Acid Storm, etc).

    Out of the ones I have (Sunstreaker, Tankor, Galvatron, Silverstreak) I'd say Galvatron. I love him to death. I got Cyclonus in the mail but I haven't opened him yet.

    Silverstreak is such a letdown. It looks really nice but something about his transformation is so irksome for me especially when I like something like Galvie. Sunstreaker and Tankor are good toys though.

    I got Cyclonus from the mail but I haven't opened him yet. I'm waiting for Christmas.

    Sunstreaker (and by extension Sideswipe) juuuuust edge out Cyclonus for me. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Cyclonus... I just got mine a few days ago, and I already love the figure more than a 30-year-old man probably should love a toy robot. This is now the definitive Cyclonus.

    And the Targetmaster partner stirred a rare moment of nostalgia.... he PERFECTLY captures the feel of the G1 TM's, and fiddling with him I totally felt like a kid again.

    Nevertheless, I have to give it to the Lambo twins because their alt mode is as strong as their robot mode (whereas I think Cyclonus' alt mode falls just a tad short), and because of the cleverness of the dual transformation.

    But it is a close call.... both are fantastic figures.

    Tankor, he's just got so much personality crammed into the mold.

    Sunstreaker easily. I don't have Cyclonus, but I'm sure he's awesome, too.

    Leaning towards Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold, but I don't have Cyclonus yet.

    Hound is good, but I honestly only like him more for Ravage which is awesome.

    I just realized why I don't see very much of Sunstreaker anymore. He's not packed in any of the next waves and judging from the results of this poll, he's pretty damn popular.
