    I'm going with:

    Clench
    Streetstar (even though there's little love)
    Spark
    Breakdown
    Sky-Byte

    Wishful thinking list:
    Black Sideswipe
    Ramjet
    Motormaster

    maybe i'm just lazy but could you someone post photos of all the toys?

    Also, what are the chances we get a G2 Ramjet? that is seriously the only G2 figure i'd like.

    From best to least:

    Spark - the first one we saw, and it instantly sold me on the set. Though the vehicle mode isn't the same shape as Pyro's, as soon as I saw Inferno in those colors, I thought it was some kinda wonderful dream.

    Clench - technically, I think Onslaught is a better toy than Inferno, and Clench was granted a new head. There's only 2 reasons Spark tops him: I still kinda wish Clench was a truck, and before this set was ever conceived, I had a fan faction that Onslaught and Clench were both part of. Now they're the same mold, which makes them less interesting side by side, but hey, he's still awesome

    Breakdown - a great homage to the ghost of Botcons past, and I really love the color scheme... out of all the ones in the box, this is the one that screams "G2 style on board."

    Sky-byte - a mold I don't already own, a character I don't have a representation of. It may not be "real G2," but I like it on its own merits.

    Ditto, except with Streetstar ;)

    Pretty much a 3-way tie among the bad guys.

    Breakdown breakdown breakdown. Homage to past Botcon, and crazy G2 colors on my favorite Universe mold. Can't beat that.

    They're making it really hard to pick this year... with the exception of Streetstar (He looks like a half-hearted attempt, honestly) all of the figures have done their homages justice and stand out really well from each other. But it's a two horse race for me between Breakdown and Sky-byte. I love the idea of upgrading and modernizing the original Botcon figure and I like the square head but it just seems a tad too small. Right now Skybyte is winning in my heart, sad that the mohawk was trimmed but I understand why, and it still manages to look like a Cybertronian version of the character very well and it's a very characterful sculpt. Love all the paint apps in vehicle mode and he manages to do what Sharkticon doesn't, make that vehicle look solid. Instead of going from black to purple and yellow it's more consistent, looking much better.

    Edit: And I just noticed Skybyte's head is TM2 asymmetrical. Well done, Fun Pub.

    Spark. I'm convinced that Inferno wasn't released in my area, along with the other late Universe voyagers (figures that I wanted all of them, save maybe Leo Prime), so it'll be great to finally have it.
