    I have an appreciation for normal mass retail figures and more collector figures, so it's always hard to say what I like more considering what i paid and what they are. That being said, I adored most things Siege, and Jetfire, Ultra Magnus, and Hound stand as my favorite three. Now, are they better than the collector figures? It's so hard to say. My favorite collector figures would be MP 44, Black Mamba DOTM MPM Prime, and UT Challenger. Magic Square Prime is close too.

    MMC Azalea came out this year, right? Not the Stealth one, the proper G1 one. If so, that's on my list. She's pretty cool.

    And New Age Manero, in all his various G1-ish color scheme versions. There were at least three, lol. Couple of them peeking in here.

    Siege jetfire...a retail release that pleases collectors

    If it were for the qc issues people had xtb deathwisg and overheat see right up there for me.

    My list only included what I actually own ... I'm pretty positive the list would,be different if I bought everything I really wanted to. Also there might be some last minute changes if certain figures release in time lol

    MP-44
    TE-01

    Bought both fully intending to sell the one I liked least. I can’t give up either!

    MMC Springer

    Absolutely killed it. Made FTs look like a 6th grade science project gone haywire. And I love FT.

    There were so many great toys this year but these were my favourite (I cheated a bit with backpacks removed and eyes painted and three counted as one!), Here's to 2020!

    Is there a full list anywhere of what was released this year? Thinking back to the start of the year, I forget if some figures were released then or at the end of last year, like some of the Zeta Aerialbot and XTB Stunticon limb-bots and the last part of MMC's Sky Lynx.

    I have to say, though, regardless of any of these, HasTak has impressed me this year with some of their main line stuff... particularly Siege. I've probably bought more of their figures in the last year than any other year since I started collecting, and their Springer is a standout... somehow managing to do what none of the 3P MP versions have managed for a fraction of the price... nailing all three modes. I know the quality and finish isn't anywhere as good, but I didn't expect it to be. But what they did accomplish was to wow me with that figure. A lot of the more expensive figures impress me, but I'm rarely wowed like that anymore.

    Yeah, J4ZZ on the right, Toyworld's Jazz on the left.
    Thanks! Wish I'd taken the time to arrange them a little nicer. :)  It's a 1:18 or 1:24 scale model car display box.

    1- MP 44,


    Easily the TF I have always wanted. Simply the best thing TF related I own.


    2- FT’s RK.

    An amazing achievement by FT. Kind of unbelievable to see how they were able to pull that off. The Menasor war was won the day FT released this monster. An unbelievable figure.

    3- MP-45

    Bee is not perfect. Many compromises to get that Toon look from the front. But man, the amount of character this tiny thing has, as well as the transformation (I happen to enjoy it quite a bit) makes it the best Bee ever made for me. I was never into the fatness of the original, and this little bug complements 44 amazingly well.

    Interesting that magic square OP isnt getting any love, considering it’s similarity to TE01 and mp44.
