    Just going to vote for the ones I have.
    CHUG Style toy
    1. MMC Spartan Reissue-- I got this guy for Christmas and on top of not costing me any money, he's exactly as good as he looks in pictures. Spartan feels like a T30 Voyager, but with better plastic. I love him.

    MP Style toy
    1. FT Quietus-- Pretty on the shelf, but not fun to mess around with. Still, he's very pretty on the shelf.

    Between the two, I actually like Spartan a bit more. I love Wreckers.

    Best company
    My favorite's still MMC

    I wanted to be able to add FT Hydra onto that list, but I won't have him until well into next month. So, maybe him later. Everything else I got this year was old, lot of cool toys of characters I wasn't interested in this year.

    Cant wait to see the top picks from the staff. They usually have excellent picks. I got striker manus and the poseability of that figure was unbelievable! I can't seem to put it down. Kultur was another excellent pick.

    It's too bad PX Ismenios came in very late in the year because based on that, they are the MOST improved company IMHO. They went from making very good quality figures into what I deem "what Ismenios has done for IDW figures is the equivalent to what FT had done with G1 figures".

    It's that good.
