    I voted Warden but just got a POL with, among others, Neptune, Sigma L, Cubrar and Utopia.
    Oh my Maketoys... Oh my...

    I'm shocked Warden gets so many votes. Only vote he gets from me is overrated figure of the year.

    He's a combiner, so he is in the combiner poll.

    I am genuinely surprised Warden has gotten so many votes. I love having him in my collection, but he strikes me as a cool figure to have, not necessarily needed. Very interesting to see how the voting has turned out!

    ;) Well as a lover of quality Robots I'm not surprised in the slightest. It's gratifying that a lot of the loudest voices bleating on and on in a fair number of threads about how much they dislike Warden actually count for so little. "Stop liking what I don't like!" Indeed.

    Well done Fandom, quality will out.:D

    I can't vote for any of them since personally I think Feral Rex is the best release this year.

    If I had to pick one from the list I suppose it would be Trashtalk since Maketoys nailed Swerve pretty well.

    Warden would be a close second, since quality-wise its one of the best 3rd party items ever, but the transformation leaves much to be desired. I don't mind some parts-forming but there's way too much of that going on.

    Scoria is great but there's just something about it that I couldn't vote it the best.

    Grant is good too, but it's pretty boring overall.

    Sigma-L's is probably the most solid of all the FP Headmasters so far but the engineering didn't blow me away like the others' did.

    Revolver is ok at best. As usual, Fansproject engineered an interesting transformation but both modes lack any sort of character.

    Azaelea is WAY too fiddly. I got the stealth version and sadly MMC let me down greatly with this one.

    Columpio is decent. Nothing spectacular, and like Revolver there's no character behind Fansproject's head sculpts. Mine isn't super loose but there's definitely QC and design issues that would make it much better.

    Ripper and Utopia look decent but I'm not interested in either. Brawny and Backland look terrible so obviously I didn't get them either.

    I haven't received Neptune or Cubrar yet, I'm waiting for MP Ultra Magnus to ship my POL.

    I really enjoy Azalea's robot mode poseability and aesthetics, and the precision and ingenuity of her transformation engineering.
    I'll be the first to admit there's something of a steep learning curve with her, but she's a lot of fun once you go through the steps a few times. Her various decos as released so far have been REALLY tight, especially the Asterisk deco. There's not many figures as visually striking.


    All that said, I'm wanting to give Brawny a look based on the praise and comments I've been hearing. I hadn't even been considering that toy before. :)

    Exactly. In terms of quality I'd say Warden is easily the best of the year. He's not my favorite of the year, but I do love the thing. I've handled Soul of Chogokin figures that don't feel as nice.

    I would've voted for Troll if he was on the list. Voted for Warden, he's fantastic and I'm fully on-board with whatever PE puts out next.

    Voted for Warden, but just got Utopia today (yes, its been a good Christmas). Have yet to open him, but having a feeling that I'd would've voted otherwise if i had both in my possession at the time of voting. I'm please with my Warden vote. Quality wise, he's heads and shoulders above the competition. Only think that may be considered as a knock is his unconventional/makeshift alt mode.

    If all figures had the quality of Warden, my collection would be unreal! Standard bearer for me (him and Leo Dux)

    Waited until Christmas day to make an informed pick, went with Cubrar in the end, he was lots of fun and beat out Neptune with ankle tilts, just.

    I can see why so many people wanted Troll on the list, he is fantastic. Sure fire contender for combiner of 2015.

    Warden gets my vote. The quality was the best I seen of any transformer. Problem free as well. I have Scoria as well but he had his issues.

    Voted Utopia over Warden and Scoria. I own all three, but Utopia I like transforming. He's fun to pose too.
