    I wanna vote for Fort Max, but I also feel like I should vote for IAmElemental because it's hopefully doing a better job of convincing young girls that action figures are okay than I am.

    Usually they just say "Wow you're a grown up girl and you play with toys???"

    Plus I love them figure designs.

    I like how Fort Max is, like, the most expensive one by about $80.

    IAmElemental is also up for Rookie of the Year. So you could vote Fort Max for Action Figure and IAE RoY.

    I honestly don't even think FM should be the nomination it's possibly the weakest of the lot when it comes to titans return and only has it's size and heritage going for it.

    IAmElemental is an interesting idea but I find the designs a little flat and the naming a little cheezey.

    Just voted Fort Max for the action figure and IAmElemental for the rookie categories. Nothing else on the list for me to vote anyway.

    As much as I do like IAmElemental concept and designs (and I really do)...

    ...they aren't Transformers. :X

    I'm a huge fan of Transformers, don't get me wrong, but there's no way I can bring myself to vote for Fort Max. His alt modes are both lacking in design, his bot mode lacks ankle rockers, no head articulation. For being the most expensive figure of the lot, he just doesn't feel "action figure" enough to deserve the win IMHO. Stikbots or IAmElemental are the ones I am looking into.

    Fort Max isn't toy of the year material.

    Sixshot is more like that.

    I could also see Trypticon being a great contender next year.

    I ended up voting IAmElemental for action figure AND rookie, and I'm seriously considering collecting them because they appeal way more to me than I was expecting
