    Update: Vote in Semi-Final 2 here: VOTE: Planet X'S next WfC/FoC figure? SEMI-FINAL 2


    What WfC/FoC figure would you like to see next from Planet X?

    Votes from the primary rounds of 40 potential WfC/FoC figures have been tallied. Votes were collected in 4 separate polls of 10 figures each. Voters were allowed to vote for up to 3 figures in each poll. Each poll was open for approximately one week and there was excellent participation:

    1,078 votes cast from 175 unique voters!

    (Links to final results of the initial rounds are listed below.)

    Results from the initial polls were combined and ranked based on highest within-round percentage of votes. The top 20 move on to the two semi-finals. Here are the top 20:

    Rank Round Figure(s) Votes %
    1 R3 Shockwave 54 vote(s) 0.519
    2 R1 Ironhide 57 vote(s) 0.46
    3 R3 Barricade 39 vote(s) 0.375
    4 R3 Slipstream 39 vote(s) 0.375
    5 R2 Springer 40 vote(s) 0.351
    6 R2 Warpath 39 vote(s) 0.342
    7 R1 Jetfire 42 vote(s) 0.339
    8 R3,4 Soundwave and his minions (Frenzy, Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, etc.) 34.5 0.3335
    9 R1 Arcee 41 vote(s) 0.331
    10 R2 Ultra Magnus 37 vote(s) 0.325
    11 R1 Jazz 37 vote(s) 0.298
    12 R2 Prowl 34 vote(s) 0.298
    13 R3,4 Insecticons (Hardshell, Kickback, Sharpshot, etc.) 28.33333 0.274667
    14 R1 Broadside 32 vote(s) 0.258
    15 R2 Zeta Prime 29 vote(s) 0.254
    16 R1 Hound 30 vote(s) 0.242
    17 R2 Wheeljack 27 vote(s) 0.237
    18 R4 Bruticus (Onslaught, Brawl, Swindle, Blast Off, Vortex) 24.4 0.237
    19 R2 Ratchet 23 vote(s) 0.202
    20 R2 Sideswipe 23 vote(s) 0.202

    Based on feedback from members of the community, some figures have been combined into a single voting option for the semi-finals and final. For example, the five combaticons which were voted on separately in the initial rounds have now been combined as Bruticus (with the 5 figures listed in order of highest to lowest preference in parentheses). The Insecticons have also been combined as well as Soundwave and his minions. These combined groups were ranked based on their average performance for figures within the group.

    The two semi-final polls will consist of even- and odd-ranked from the above list as follows:

    SEMI-FINAL 1
    1 Shockwave
    2 Barricade
    3 Springer
    4 Jetfire
    5 Arcee
    6 Jazz
    7 Insecticons (Hardshell, Kickback, Sharpshot, etc.)
    8 Zeta Prime
    9 Wheeljack
    10 Ratchet

    SEMI-FINAL 2
    1 Ironhide
    2 Slipstream
    3 Warpath
    4 Soundwave and his minions (Frenzy, Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, etc.)
    5 Ultra Magnus
    6 Prowl
    7 Broadside
    8 Hound
    9 Bruticus (Onslaught, Brawl, Swindle, Blast Off, Vortex)
    10 Sideswipe

    This time you can choose your favorite 4 figures from each list.

    The remaining figures that did not make the semi-finals still received much attention--at least 10 votes for every figure of the initial 40. So, there is clearly high interest in all of the potential figures. However, only 20 can move on. Here are those that just missed the cut:

    Rank Round Figure(s) Votes %
    21 R3 Breakdown 19 vote(s) 0.183
    22 R3 Demolishor 19 vote(s) 0.183
    23 R1 Bumblebee 18 vote(s) 0.145
    24 R2 Silverbolt 16 vote(s) 0.14
    25 R3 Dead End 13 vote(s) 0.125
    26 R3 Quake 12 vote(s) 0.115
    27 R2 Scattershot 13 vote(s) 0.114
    28 R1 Air Raid 14 vote(s) 0.113
    29 R4 Sentry 11 vote(s) 0.107
    30 R3 Dragstrip 11 vote(s) 0.106
    31 R1 Cliffjumper 12 vote(s) 0.097
    32 R4 Leaper 10 vote(s) 0.097
    33 R1 Metroplex 11 vote(s) 0.089


    The top 10 winning choices from the semi-finals will move on to a final poll to rank the top 10 desired figures from this universe. So far, we've had great participation. If this participation level continues, I will post the results over at PX's Facebook page and link them here so they can see what the fans on here want to see next. The more votes the better, so please refer these polls to others so that we can have many participants.

    Details of the initial four rounds:
    Round 1: Vote: Planet X's next WfC/FoC figure?
    Round 2: VOTE: PLANET X'S NEXT WFC/FOC FIGURE? Round 2
    Round 3: VOTE: PLANET X'S NEXT WFC/FOC FIGURE? ROUND 3
    Round 4: VOTE: PLANET X'S NEXT WFC/FOC FIGURE? ROUND 4

    I can see my desires are not in line with the majority (for the most part). Looks like I want less done characters compared to the ones who have been done at least 3 times. Nothing new here.

    I voted for Barricade, Jazz, Jetfire, and Springer. All look pretty cool.

    I would've at least put in the option to vote for Motormaster, Rodimus, and Cyclonus (one of my favorites).

    It'd make sense to combine all the Stunticons and Aerialbots as well for the vote. WFC/FOC Menasor and Superion? Yes please.

    Part of me kind of doesn't want to see a FoC Superion nor Menasor due to them not being part of the FoC/WfC lore. Heck, only 3 of the Aerialbots were in the game/story and only 2 (3 if you count RotDS. Sorry, still not counting Nintendo DS' Motormaster. I rather stick to the Activision-HMS designs) of the Stunticons also showed up in the game/story.

    The other part of me is curious to see a FoC Menasor and Superion, but I'm still leaning on the side of the Lore accuracy.


    That being said (and pardon the slight thread derailing), there was someone on here who did a custom FoC Stunticon team from Hasbro FoC figs, legos, a custom other fig about 4 years back. It was pretty impressive work back then.

    He even did a custom FoC-style info sheet wallpaper of them ...

    I do like that, but I know Planet X could do it 10 times better.

    I understand sticking to the source for characters, but that does put a very small limit on who gets made. For completionists this may be a good thing, but I'm willing to pick and choose designs I find cool.

    Also, I'm not sure how viable/profitable a couple stand alone combiner members would be without the rest (or the ability to combine). I'm pretty sure most people get combiner members to combine them.
    I think they would've been more popular in voting if they were combined, but it is what it is.

    Maybe it's a good thing so I don't spend more money.

    True story Arcee needs her WFC design realized into a toy, quite badly.

    Irony of ironies. WfC Arcee is the one design I'm not all that fond of. I'm not truly sure what it is, but I'm just not feeling it completely.

    It's probably due to the giant man hands Arcee is sporting...

    I'd really love to see Springer from the art book! I was really bummed we didn't get to see him in the actual game.

    I managed to vote for 9th and 10th place out of 10 choices. Seems typical for my wants. I am shocked Springer is 9th though.

    Can we all just admit and let planet x know we want everyone of these figures to be released eventually! Hell if they want to throw in ones that were not in the game and give them the fall of cybertron treatment they can do those too!

    Oh, without question PX will do better. I did think that guy's custom was pretty kewl. Here's hoping PX teases us some more with further future announcements.

    I'd like one, but need a break from expensive figures. I just got the Genesis reissue and now Apocalypse is coming out.
