    It's too bad Police Sunstreaker had such a poor showing, as the original is one of the more striking Diaclone figures. Guess I was correct to customize my own since it seems there won't be one forthcoming from either Botcon/Funpub or Japan in the near future.

    Not surprised at the poor showing of the Omnibots because the molds didn't really work (for me at least). I think they could have gone with the FOC Jazz mold for Camshaft and Downshift and the FOC Sideswipe mold for Overdrive, all with new heads. Since they were the original "reinforcements from Cybertron" the non-Earth alt modes wouldn't be a problem and the smaller deluxe size would actually be true to the original G1 figures :)

    I hope someone considers doing Siren still. Hell I'd be fine if they made it a two-pack (though I know that won't happen).

    I'd assumed Alpha Trion would win so that not happening is a surprise.

    I hope Police Sunstreaker's mediocre finish doesn't hurt the possibility of more Diaclone/pre-TF stuff going forward.

    I'd have paid through the NOSE for all three Omnibots.

    Looks like I can save some $.

    I want Omnibots too, but I don't think I want them all to share the same mold. The Smokescreen mold for Overdrive and the Wheeljack mold for Downshift are perfect. I think I'd rather see Camshaft with the Crosscut mold, though.

    I totally dig that idea. I want it to be a real thing now... Maybe I'll get that barn set with rusted prime and just call that Crosscut mold Camshaft.

    I'm happy that the Omnibots did so poorly. They deserve their own molds.

    I'll be honest I don't care about goshooter at all, but I wasn't really gonna buy any of these anyways so good for those who like him.

    I'm a little sad Smokescreen did so poorly. The idea is hilarious.

    I really wanted that Alpha Trion. Maybe he will see the light of day sometime.

    I think the majority of these have merit and should be released, as long as they don't stifle the production schedule of new Generations molds.

    People really picked THIS over much better figures!?!

    I was convinced Alpha Trion was going to be the winner. That, or something better than that shitty mold.

    Oh well, off to BBTS to cancel that preorder, guess I'm saving some money!

    Who the frickity-frack is GoShooter? /checks TFwiki

    ...

    Okay, I know Beast Wars isn't the sensation over there that it is here (mostly due to the 'hilarious' redub), but how does a 13-year-old Headmaster Jr. on a mold that fans are pretty split about beat out Silverbolt? (I totally understand how Alpha Trion did it. That part doesn't bother me at all.)

    Why would they do that? They're Japanese-exclusive releases that are produced in (iirc) limited quantities. I don't see how any of that would have any impact on Generations or the molds created therein.

    Does anyone still have the original image of all 10 options? I was looking but didn't see it.

    Hopefully fun pub is looking at the other nine options as possible future Botcon/TFSS4.0 figures.

    I can't tell what head the Fallen uses, but that was my second choice over Alpha Trion.

    Sadly I doubt that's the conclusion they'll draw. It'll be more like Omnibots got hammered = no one wants Omnibots. :( 

    Also, Alpha Trion lost but only by 0.4%! I'd wager that this one is quite likely to happen later on.
