Precisely. This isn't the oscars or some sort of big time event (though I'm glad people care about our opinions, don't get me wrong). We're just fans sharing our opinion of what we enjoyed of the 2012 releases. Some of you questioned things like FoC Bruticus (sold as a giftset on two of his releases), FE Voyagers (grey area, but they did get a proper release again in 2012) and other stuff, but really, it's not deadly serious. We did it all for fun.


I was actually torn on my choice. For my 2012 ended with me getting a new version of one of my favourite characters... so nearly went with him. Perhaps next year?

I have to vote for all of the new Masterpiece releases, and a runner up to San Diego Comic Cons Fall of Cybertron Bruticus. If the retail version had more game accurate colors this would have been my top choice. I hope we see more combiners in 2013.

Another thing I want to mention because some people seem to not quite get what we are doing here. These lists are based on OUR PERSONAL experiences with the brand in 2012. Meaning we weren't going to pick something for our lists that we didn't actually get.

Why wasn't Jet Vehicon on my list? Because I don't own one, so I'm not going to comment on it. Same with MP Lambor..I don't own him. MP Alert, haven't had the chance to open him up prior to making my list, so it wouldn't be fair to add him. My personal top 5 is just that: the 5 Transformers products that I liked best out of what I bought that was released this calendar year. Sorry that the standard Vehicon didn't make it, it's a fine deluxe but I prefer the other 5 I did put on my list over a troop builder with no character whatsoever.

Thanks for reading!

Indeed. My list didn't have Masterpiece Optimus Prime on it until the day after Christmas, and I got Sideswipe after the first, so I'm not really counting him either.

Prime Optimus and Bulkhead could've made the list, but I've had them for awhile now and forgot they're just now available at TRU. I had a really good time creating this list, and narrowing down my original list from 10 or 11 to what I chose. Can't wait until next years list now, excited to see what we get in 2013.

Looking at invoices from 2012, I'm ashamed to see that the the only Transformers I bought were repaints. There was the Botcon Set, the extra Botcon Figures like SG Drift and SG Kick-Over and SG Optimus Prime, I also bought The reisues of Soundblaster and Twincast. I also have the TFCC Freebie Runamuck and TFCC Over-Run. The last one I received was GDO Hot Spot. Million Publishing Artfire went into my POL on Dec 26, but I am waiting for another figure to be released before shipping out the POL. I skipped the MPs because of the size reduction. Plus there were a lot of great 3rd Party figures that came out. If I had to pick a favorite it would be TFCC Runamuck and Over-Run would be second; followed by SG Kick-Over, SG Treadshot and GDO Hot Spot.

edit: I forgot the SG Junkions. Those are pretty sweet too.


The road to success is always under construction.

Hot Spot, Runamuck and Runabout all made my top 10 list, but didn't quite make the cut at the end of the day. They're great figures though.

Anyone have the link to 2011 and 2010's tfw2005 editor's picks? Clearly I have missed out by just focusing on MP's and G1's.

*edit nevermind found them!
