    So its November now, only one month left for this year to end.Although there are a couple of possible candidates that havent been released yet i feel it would be fun to share our thoughts on that and update the thread as i we go along...So far there are three releases that stand out in my mind:
    -Fans Toys Stomp
    -KFC Simba
    -MMC Carnifex



    Keep it civil,no condescending,no sarcasm be respectful

    Obvious but i can't disagree, except maybe to say stomp x! All blinged up he's even better :D 

    Not mine personally but i think MT Pandinus should be in there, cos he's freaking awesome too.

    I remember last year Apollyon won.

    KFC Simba will only be my second 3rd party purchase this year (mainly for budgetary reasons, the first being FT Shrapnel). I no longer collect CHUG and while Overlord is my favorite Decepticon of all time (specifically the Masterforce/original/G1 incarnation), I'm on the fence about getting Carnifex. But seems to be an outstanding figure.

    Other candidates (none of which I own, but there seems to be general praise reading the threads)

    Toyworld Devastator/Constructicons
    Maketoys Despotron
    DX9 Tyrant

    Was Andras this year? If so that would be my personal vote. If not? Not sure. I haven't bought a lot this year.

    Stomp's going to take the crown, but I'd nominate:

    FT Willis for an almost perfect 3P carbot, and
    BB7 KO seekers for doing what TT should have done years ago to improve the mold and offer it at a more palatable pricepoint

    Some of these choices are not clicking with me lol. Simba?! Gewalt??? I thought we all were on the same page here. Stomp by a landslide people. The only thing wrong with that figure is the raised spot on his head for a faction symbol

    I've got Simba on the way. MP Star Saber is going to look so kick ass with him!!!

    First "large" 3P figure I've bought since Andras.

    Stomp, nothing compares, nothing comes close to it. It is irrefutable!
