I thought there were a lot of great releases this year. Off the top of my head I'd probably put these three at the top for now: MP-44: Now that I've had it and TE-01 for a while, I have to give the nod to MP-44. It just looks better to me (well, from the front anyway, which is what I see 99% of the time) and the articulation is leagues better. It's too expensive and the QC problems are real, but for sheer enjoyment I find it tough to beat. TE-01: After a month or so of owning it I called it my favorite Transformers figure of all time. MP-44 has surpassed it in my book, but it's still a great figure. If MP-44 didn't exist it would be my definitive Prime. DX9 La Hire: Looks great in both modes and cool engineering. Honorable mentions include FT Spoiler, WFC-Seige Astrotrain, MP-45 (yes, I actually like it a lot), TFC ST-Commander, and MMC Azalea. I'm probably forgetting some other great figures, but these comes to mind as some of the best this year for me.
