    In the past, we've had such classic/fan-favorite Botcon figures as SG Prime, SG Rodimus, GOD Seekers (before their numerous re-issues), '05 Ratchet/Ironhide and the Sweeps.

    Now that we likely know all of the 2010 figures, who is your pick to be the gem of this year's set? I intentionally left out a couple figures that aren't really in the discussion (sorry Streetstar and Cindersaur). Also, I inadvertently left Rapido off the list....(please forgive me).

    My vote is for Gnaw....even if he is a troop builder.

    I'm almost definitely thinking Gnaw. I know how the G1-ers roll. Even if it comes in a pack of 3, that won't be enough.

    If we're saying "which one will be the most popular on the aftermarket," my guess would be Breakdown, though Clench would be next. That's not my personal fav, though, which might be Double Punch at this point (though Spark, Clench, and Breakdown are all very cool too).


    Also, kinda surprised Scorch and Slicer are on the list but Rapido isn't...

    Ugh....my bad. I knew I forgot someone. Super-apologies to Rapido fans (I don't think I can add anyone at this point).

    While Breakdown is amazing, the upgrade of the original exclusive... it has to be Skybyte for me. Aside from my love of that mold it's such a great character to resurrect, really looking forward to how he fits into this year's fiction. Rapido's a close second, despite not being in the list

    My vote is for Gnaw/Sharkticon. If Breakdown had been availible in G1 colors he'd got my vote. Still a great figure imo just not in love with G2 color scheme.

    havent seen a robot pic of double punch, but I think he's going to be the front runner of the exclusives, him and slicer.

    Rapido. He's the one that gets my G2 nostalgia revving.

    Gnaw is really cool and had I had him tops til the Scorponok repaint showed up. That mold is really cool and I was hoping to get him in Generations of something. Guess not.

    I've got a Pyro head in the works through Calloway customs which should really make "Spark" awesome. He needs a new head. I'm quite keen on the entire set though.

    Breakdown is tops and then Gnaw would be a close second. Botcon troopbuilder figures are bad news for my wallet.

    Why is Ravage missing from the list?
