    Out of the box, which is your favorite so far? I see a lot of opinions in the release threads in news/rumors, but I'd like to see what a poll looks like in aggregate. Vote #1 is from me, and I'm going with Tracks.

    Treadshot over Tracks but I plan to get both. Metalhawk could be good, but I want to see a bigger pic.

    Not crazy about any of them, but if I had to pick, I'd probably go with Gigatron.

    Haha, no love for Gigatron, and none deserved IMO.

    I like the look of Metalhawk. Not even remotely enough to go for the entire set, especially not for the price they're asking, but it looks nice enough.

    Treadshot, unless Metalhawk really impresses. He's got, apparently rare for this year, a blend of good head sculpt, good mold, and interesting deco.

    Treadshot, easily. It's a good homage and the colour scheme looks very nice on it's own merits. The only other figure in the set that even comes close is SG Tracks; the others are crap for one reason or another.

    Strange poll results to me...Treadshot is the least appealing to me, though I like his headsculpt and all. I like all the rest to some extent. SG Tracks is...well, SG Tracks, but I have a feeling I may like the character, and the color certainly pops. Gigatron/Overlord is magnificent (consider what they had to work with) and is my vote in the poll. I have nitpicks with UM and SW but overall I like them quite a bit.

    Definitely Treadshot. He's definitely helped by the fact that he comes from the RTS Jazz mold, which is one of the best TF figures in recent memory.
