    DX9 does look great. But, what makes Tracks a worst buy for you? Just wondering, because I was considering getting him at some point in the future.....

    Are you trolling this particular forum, perhaps?

    Coz there is a specific 3P forum to show your affections for 3Ps.

    Doesn't mean he isn't allowed to say his favorite purchase of the year was 3P here. What if the second person in the thread's favorite figure was from Hasbro and their most regretted purchase was 3P? Would the thread get kicked back out of the 3P forum and put here again? It's ridiculous. Let the man have an opinion.

    As for my favorite purchase of the year (so far), it would have to be Takara Legends Fort Max. It is awesome in every way (except arguably city mode). Super impressive, great looking, and super fun.

    I don't know what my least favorite purchase of the year would be. I've been very careful this year and other than Titans Return/Legends, which has all been excellent, I haven't bought much.

    Why would anyone here do that??? Just to rile up people?

    This particular forum is usually for official Hasbro/Takara TFs. Whether they suck or not.

    Well I'm still glad I have Tracks. But of all the TF I got this year he was the one that least impressed me. Just the holow backpack, lack of heft. Paint is amazing though. And the headsculpt is bang on

    He's asking -- ALL INCLUSIVE -- what is your favorite purchase of the year, and what is your least. Why do we have to have two separate discussions?

    In 2015, my favorite purchase by a million miles, was ToyWorld Infinitor. This year, by just as many miles, my favorite is Takara Fort Max.

    It doesn't have to be an evil us-versus-them thing.

    Don't troll my thread please.
    Thanks.

    The way this forum is set up, there's no way to do a thread and keep everyone happy. And besides, the last time I did a thread involving both a mod moved it here. So here it is.
    In my eyes, I don't care what brand it is- they are all transformers

    I'm going to say WEAKEST because trust me they are far from being bad but Ravage and Stripes. Still like them for what they are but still, meh.

    He is great, I knew I was going to like him the moment I bought Sentinel Prime. I just love him more then Prime because of his head sculpt, his colors, and just because Astrotrain has to be one of my favorite Cons not a Seeker. Him being a headmaster is just a plus, Titans Return made me love Headmasters after the disappointment that was Voyager Brainstorm. Titans Return is a gold mine, one of the best lines ever.

    What's wrong with Masterpiece Tracks, he looks cool. Just curious.

    Worst ? None.
    Pfwew, that was easy. But honestly, yes, none. Lucky with my choices I guess ?

    Best ? That's another matter. I'll wait for the year to end for a real accurate favorites list, which is already pretty filled, but so far, topping toys like Stomp, Carnifex, Jaguar, Primal, Inferno, Triggerhappy, Fort Max... Here's my number one guy:

    Oh this guy. This guy was a big deal this year for me. Pretty much changed my CHUG life.

    @plastic therapy He, in my opinion, really desserves so.
    Getting him was like a christmas morning when you were good all the year.

    Worst: TR Fort Max. A decent represantation of the character, but for the cost, the alt modes disappoint me.

    Best: CW Fruiticus boxset, because I had 3/5th of G2 Bruticus when I was a kid.
