Maybe my thoughts would be different if I had opened my MP-10. I have to get a extra or a Loose one before I can pass judgment.

MP10 takes the cake for me. I was lucky enough to be able to get a hold of one at a decent price and am just impressed again and again with the figure. He looks great next to the other MP figures and he looks great standing side by side with most of my classic figures as well.
MP sideswipe looks great, but the size/import cost ratio didnt win me over in the long run. He's essentially voyager sized at about 3-4 times the cost stateside. If we get a hasbro release for Red Alert, and any other g1 autobot cars (Sunstreaker fingers crossed), I'd be happy to add them to the collection, but in the mean time, I'll wait and see

Good choices, especially MP Prime.
Also, at the dishonorable mention...poor Airachnid, she was a wimpy one.
Guess I'd have to say Hasbro didn't have their "Spidey Sense" this year.
From Transformers Prime
"My name is Optimus Prime and I send this message.....If you approach this planet with hostile intent..know this: We will defend ourselves. We will defend humanity. We will defend our home."

Masterpiece Sideswipe is great. Ultra Magnus Prime is cool, but I am hoping for a Motormaster repaint. Couldn't find the new Optimus Masterpiece anywhere. Got a SDCC Bruticus too.

I LOVE my mp-11 Starscream. They got it right! Pose ability, colors, mold all right off the cartoon. Out of all the transformers I bought this year my list would be as follows (cause everyone cares right)
1. MP-11 Starscream
2. Knightmorpher Cyclops and mini sub
3. igear Ironhide - closest thing we are getting to a mp Ironhide for now. They did a great job
4. MP-12 Sideswipe
Im interested to hear what other people's list would be!

Some really good pics here, but I'd have to vote for MP-11 Starscream. Blows the MP-3 mold out of the water IMO.
Definitely the Starscream toy I've always wanted, ever since I bought my first Starscream in the '80s and wondered why the hell the toy didn't resemble the character on screen

i like almost every single one of the choices here.. except bruticus. G2 bruticus is definitely the coolest out of all of them. and with how awesome 3rd party companies are making combiners, it's hard to judge hasbro's bruticus without those figures in mind.
