    Too many Fans Toys threads lately. But based on my purchasing experience:

    1. Phoenix
    2. Road King
    3. Sovereign
    4. Grenadier
    5. The stuff I thought was not great, but not bad either (the other Insecticons, Spindrift, Dracula, Lupus)

    And at this point I might as well toss in:

    6. The stuff I bought but don't really like and only kept because there isn't a better option (Quietus, Tesla)
    7. Rouge.

    Like I said, I'm limiting myself to just the ones I bought. Otherwise I might say that the Dibots seem quite good, as does Quakewave and Terminus Giganticus (I just opted for Gigapower's Dinobots, Quakeblast, and Gabriel respectively). If I didn't have a Hot Rod Hoodlum seems like the best option out there, but not so good that I feel like replacing the MP-28 I already have. Based on other reviews I could tell that Koot and Apache weren't my cup of tea, and I'm not sure I care enough about Sixshot to invest in an MP version or to figure out if I'd want Hydra or the DX9 one.

    Don't own any FT. Anything they've produced that I'd have wanted is long sold out.

    1. sovereign

    4. roadking
    5. all 3 insecticons

    In this specific order:



    1- Road King (A revelation)
    2- Phoenix (The best MP Skyfire ever made)
    3- Stomp (sold it long ago, excellent figure but IMO, Dinobots should be a tad bigger )
    4- Grinder (With the new Dino Head, that is)



    That's it, really. Nothing else that I've owned (and sold) can be considered for a top 5 "Greatest" list for me.

    1. Stomp
    2. Sever
    3. Roadking
    4. Phoenix
    5. Scoria

    My decisions are colored by a combination of looks, transformation, love of the character, and the competition for similar characters.

    My least favorite are quietus, rouge, Apache all due to transformation issues.

    Hard to place them in order, so my top 5 are:

    Quietus
    Phoenix
    Stomp
    Terminus Giganticus
    Willis

    Like many others have noted this is just a list of the ones I own, if I had been in the 3p game early enough to get on Sovereign for a decent price I feel like he would make the list... Also Roadking is on the way so that could also change things.

    Five favourites, five dinodots. That was easy.

    In no particular order:
    Quake Wave
    Quake Wave
    Quake Wave
    Quake Wave
    Scotia

    Those are the only figures I've bought. Not really a fan of MP stuff.
