    Almost the end of the year.

    So, what was/is your favorite TF purchase that you made this year, wether it be purchased or through a trade. JUST ONE ITEM (It seriously can't be that hard to narrow down). Try to avoid posting combiners, that were sold separate, just because they can combine into one. So posting a 2pack/gift set is ok since they all came in one packaging/box (not shipping box). Lets not include the stuff you got as a gift because that would include Christmas. Also, try not to include preordered purchases that are due for release some time next year. Listing an item that you plan on purchasing before the end of the year (with a 2011 release date) is fine.

    For me.... Big Convoy.
    I had 2 Target Exclusive Universe Nemesis Primes that I ended up selling years ago (MISB and Loose). I do kind of regret selling the loose one since I sold him in a lot that went pretty damn cheap. He looked great and all, but I really wanted the regular colors. So this year I did finally end up picking one up. While he does have alot of kibble, he still looks pretty good in my collection. I think the long wait made the purchase that much sweeter.

    G1 Scorponok. He's not complete, but I don't care. I'm just happy to finally have that bot in my collection.

    I'd have to say MP-01 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime. The first US battle damaged version.
    Wanted it since it came out in 2004, finally got it this year.

    Right now DOTM Space Case is a big winner for me. I just love the poseability and playability of this figure.

    Hard to pick from this years Animated exclusive figures. It would either have to be TFCC Cheetor or Botcon Sideswipe. Both just great re-uses of their respective molds.

    Honorable mention goes to DotM deluxe Bumblebee. You heard me.

    Wow, hmm this is a toughie, this was a year of many firsts for me as well as a good year for getting a bunch of grails.

    I'd say these would probably be the best, should be a tie
    1. Shattered Glass Megatron - first Botcon toy ever
    2. Beast Wars Neo Black Big Convoy - one of my oldest grails

    Got both off Junkion Exchange, where I decided to make the dip for the first time ever after years on this board :)

    I'd have to say DotM Skywarp.

    Love the purple and black color scheme on that figure, plus I really learned to love the mold after buying and transforming Starscream and Thundercracker.

    Reveal The Shield Jazz.

    I had been wanting a Classics style Jazz since the Classics line first came out years ago. I was so excited to get the figure at last that my facebook profile picture is me all smiles with the figure.

    I'll say DOTM Darksteel for a purchase, as its probably the nearest I'll of a real BW Quickstrike update

    I'll throw this end for the heck of it, the highlight of the year. Fourteen free transformers from Hasbro online, all thanks to a wonderful glitch back in July. It took the total amount and made that the discount and that cancel out the amount total and left a nice $0.00.

    Best purchase of the year was the TRU EX-02 Galaxy Force Sonic Convoy Giftset (from TFW2005 board member flywheels). I've been wanting it for years.

    RTS Legends Prime. He's a great desk toy, does a good job of capturing the G1 Prime look, and was only $2 at a discount outlet. Now to get Megatron in 2012.

    MP-10, by far.

    Since I played catch-up this year with loads of 2010 and 2011 stuff this year, I've gotten quite a few things that are among my favorites ever.
