    Correct. And Wheeljack and Soundwave, but they were two of the best of that line, and never got here.

    I guess I'm in the minority in that I actually like the FoC figures...I mean, I wish they were larger just as much as anyone else, but that doesn't automatically make them bad. I'm especially fond of Optimus and Shockwave.

    I like them too. I was aware of the size and bulk of them before I bought them so I knew what I was getting. They really just need a little paint to bring out more of the details and they look great.

    I liked Prime and Shockwave. I'm REALLY looking forward to their remolds, the Voyagers, and Kickback.

    Starscream looks solid, but I won't be getting him.

    Doesn't change the fact that, on the whole, 6/8 FoC figures that have come out really aren't considered "good" by the fandom as a whole. The Combaticons are... deeply flawed, and Jazz is just needless. And manages to accentuate the flaws of Optimus and Shockwave by being larger than them, despite the fact he should be the smallest one.

    Long story short, FoC is a bad toyline. But it's going to be an awesome one. There's a lot lined up to make it great, but what we've gotten so far has been a terrible 2 waves.

    Yeah, that was a fail on my part. :p 

    Exactly my point. The G2 version and the SDCC version look fine, but the colors of the retail version are just ungodly awful. That's why it made my list.

    I can understand why you like Hot Shot, though.

    Sometimes what ISN'T on your shelf says more than what is.. in my case, I've skipped on Airachnid, Foc Jazz and Prime, Prime Bumblebee and his repaints, Optimus Maximus, most Prime voyagers sans Megatron (can't find FE though), haven't seen Bruticus yet, but I'm pretty sure I won't be getting him, and alas I haven't bought Prime Arcee because I hate the character. That's what we call reverse buyer's remorse... Sorry I didn't pick it up. XD But character's important to me. /shrug

    Of the stuff I DID buy this year, Knockout gets a mention for being all "meh," and Ratchet for having a shitty transformation. Both modes look fine... but getting between is just.. ergh, no.

    I watch reviews, so I avoid the bad stuff. Lucky me! I still have FoC onslaught though, poor guy. Still the worst on my shelf.

    Ever heard of that saying:

    "You´re entitled to your opinion, just am I entitled to call you a moron, cause it´s wrong and you still hold to it"?

    Just take the moron part and the rest still holds true. That said Knock-Out is pretty meh.

    There's a lot on that list that shouldn't be there. Specifically PRID Hot Shot is a fairly nice bot and an example of the difference a paint job and a new head can do for a fig. PRID Cliffjumper is a lot better than folks give him credit for and PRID Megs is a reasonable figure weighed down by a bad paint job.

    If it were for Arachnid I'd have easily picked FoC Jazz. Just a bad toy. Boring, small poorly armed and barely fits together.

    Optimus Maximus. That thing is a dog with fleas.

    I'd buy Airachnid three more times before buying that thing.

    And I'm not exactly sure how FE deluxe Optimus is a bad toy...

    Aside from airachnid...foc brawl takes the cake. FOC has been pretty bad so far. Bruticus is a fun toy...but onslaught, blastoff, vortex, swindle...suck. I like magnus, kickback and starscream...but the rest have been dog sh*t

    Prime Airachnid for me. Nothing tops her awfulness from this year.

    Ah, I guess I just feel like, no matter how bad a paintjob is, the fact the mold is (depressingly) head and shoulders above the rest of the figures in its waves (interestingly, largely because of its head and shoulders) redeems it enough to think that Brawl or Onslaught, who are still too bright for me, but crappy molds to boot. But that's just an opinion about how we posit opinions so... yeah.

    I don't own it, but I don't WANT to own it because of the fake windows. I'm not against fake windows as a rule, but they just look terrible on the Deluxe. My guess is that isn't enough to warrant a spot on this list but more than enough to make me not desire it.
