    Well it's the end to yet another year(Holy smokes what a year it was for TF's), whether heavy or light it's time once again to rate your purchases of the year.

    Ye old copy paste with an addition I always forget to add:
    Da rules(in case your new or just forgot like me :D  )
    - Can be a figure from any line just have to have been purchased this year
    - 3rd Party Counts
    - KO's Count
    - Since Thew did it you can list Combiners and multiple figures in one spot
    - Pre-orders, yeah I know you might be really excited for it and have already paid for it, but can we just leave them off the list if you can. Save things you actually have and messed with.
    -Not required but if you want to include why a figure is on the list or in such and such place go right ahead.

    1) Legends LG-25 Blurr - broken record time, but he just fills and exceeds all expectations. 23 Some odd years later and the wish for a Blurr like he was in the 86 Movie finally fulfilled.
    2) WFC UK/HK Exclusive Legends Starscream
    3) Titanmaster Apeface
    4) Legends LG-30 Weirdwolf
    5) SDCC 2005 Legends Skywarp
    6) DOTM Target Exclusive Blue Cyberverse Commander Ironhide - a favorite mold of mine that looks amazing in blue.
    7) CW G2 Slingshot
    8) CW G2 Wildrider
    9) Legends LG-21 Hardhead
    10) Titanmaster Fangry
    11) Titanmaster Clobber
    12) Titanmaster Skytread
    13) Legends LG-33 Targetmaster
    14) Legends LG-24 Shockwave w/Cancer
    15) Botcon 2005 Ramjet
    16) Thrilling 30 Eclipse

    Wow first year I actually filled the list and had extra bots/cons to boot.

    ~edit~
    Okay since getting Fangry, Crashbash and I have had a bit of a falling out. I'm sorry little guy but a Muzzle faced con riding a mini dragon is hard to not include on a top list.

    Time for another picture of my shockingly shit carpet. Dinnae worry, we're taking the carpet up in spring.
    [​IMG]
    This year I have mainly loved, in no special order and with a clear Titans Return bias
    1) Fortress Maximus. I've played with Cerebros more, I must admit, but I've definitely had some fun with the basemode too.
    2) Sentinel Prime. First TR figure that showed up at my door and, weird as he is i've played with him so much.
    3) Hot Rod. You handsome cur!
    4) Legends Hardhead. Hardhead has always had a mouth. Apart from when he was the only regular Headmaster I owned as a kid. It had to be the Takara version.
    5) Sky Lynx. Yes, he probably should have been bigger to work in scale with everyone else but we were never going to get a Titan Class Sky Lynx. It's such a batshit charcter that i'm just grateful to have him and I think it showed a certain bravery on Hasbro's part which ahs continued on into Titans Return.
    6) Wheelie. Titan's Return has done an admirable job of giving us an almost platonic ideal of some of these chars. before TR if I'd imagined a Wheelie toy he'd probably look like this. And then he can have little headmasters drive him round.
    7) Gnaw. Same.
    8) Crashbash. The most playable of the Titan Masters. Ingenious dino mode!
    9) Blackshadow. If I was rating these in order this guy would actually be no.1. He's one of the most elegant TF's I've ever seen. While I know the TR Blackshadow will fit in with my collection scalewise there's just no way he'll look as fantastic as this guy.
    10) Spartan. I've wanted an Impactor toy since 1986. if I'm being totally honest I would have loved him even more if he'd looked like the Geoff Senior/Jeff Anderson design.
    11) Sixshot. Much like Wheelie and Gnaw this guy feels like a devoted mash up of the original toy and the character model.It's absurdly handsome, inceredibly playable and I'd take it to bed on an evening if I wouldn't be on the recieving end of complaints.
    12) UW Computron.A last sputter from Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors. While it typified the retools that defined those lines it did it in remarkably quirky style. Nosecone and Strafe are incredibly impressive and Afterburner gave me the chance to own the Groove mold without doubling up on the character. The only thing that the Hasbro version had over Takara was Scrounge. The doomed little bastard.
    13) Generations Wheeljack. I can't remember who I got first, Wheeljack or Tracks, but tthis mold was perfect for Wheeljack. In my eye it catches so much more of the eccentric character than any other version, bard perhaps the MP.
    14) Generations Hound. clunky but kind of perfect too. Another one where the CW update was woefully inadequate. They really cpatured that heroic innocnence of the dude we all loved from the old cartoon.
    15) Rewind. I shouldn't like this guy so much. He turns into a bloody tank and a tablet. He's got massive beefy arms and a weird extendy pistol thing. He's almost the antithesis of what I loved about Wheelie and Gnaw. and yet he nails that indefinable thing about the IDW charcter. It can't just be the wee camera on the side of his head. Posing him and Chromey together has brought me a lot of joy.
    16) Triggerhappy. I had zero expectations for Titans Return Triggerhappy. Talk about c-list. I can't think of a single distingusihing feature of this guy as an actual character. And yet here we have one the best desigend, charismatic Titans Return figures. Another example of Hasbro investing in the obscure.

    I've totally fallen out of love with the Masterpiece line. It was only when I posted this did I remember that i thought Ironhide was kind of alright and fine I guess? i think i've gone full CHUG.

    I don't think I can fill a top 16 list, but this is what I purchased in no particular order:

    1. MP Inferno
    2. TR Fortress Maximus
    3. TR Wheelie
    4. MP Ironhide
    5. MP Ratchet
    6. CW SkyLynx
    7. CW Bruticus
    8. CW Menasor
    9. CW Superion
    10. SDCC MP Bumblebee
    11. MP Thundercracker
    12. MP Red Alert
    13. MP Road Rage
    14. MP KO BLUE Bluestreak
    15. MP Shockwave
    16. MP Hot Rodimus

    What do you know? I bought exactly 16. :p  Oh, wait! I bought some KO Quintessons from eBay, so that makes 17, I guess... and that also means I buy too much stuff.

    With a list of 16, it's a pretty easy choice for me this year. I only bought (and kept) 19 TF's so cutting the legends wheelie and shockwave along with TAV Windblade off the list wasn't difficult.

    1. FT Stomp
    2. MP Ratchet
    3. MP Ironhide
    4. MP Shockwave
    5. MP Inferno
    6. MP Hot Rod
    7. FT Mercenary
    8. FT Forager
    9. MP Ramjet
    10. MP Thrust
    11. Legends Blurr
    12. TR Brainstorm
    13. TR Chromedome
    14. TR Hardhead
    15. TR Highbrow
    16. CW Dlx Groove

    no order at all.
    There was a lot of great stuff this year, hard to narrow it down to just 16. I'm sure I'm also forgetting stuff. Wanted to put tons of titans return and legends stuff in there, like blur and fort max, but really just like that line as a whole. There's also stuff that got released this year I just haven't received yet, like rioter despotron, mmc titanika, and lg super ginrai.

    Obtained this year...
    MP-29: Life-long collecting dream come true.
    MP-24: I ended up loving this figure a lot more than I ever expected to.
    MP-32: Boss Monkey is totally boss.
    MP-06 (Hasbro): Absolutely love the colors on this one.
    MP-11 (Hasbro): The blue looks amazing, and the tampos are rock solid.
    TR Galvatron: The Galvatron I always wanted without knowing I did. Such a fun figure.
    CW Bruticus (team): The only Combiner I bought that hasn't ended up in the 'to sell' bin. Love it.
    Million Publishing Artfire: Takes an already awesome Inferno mold and makes it stunning.
    Universe Inferno: Yeah, this one's awesome too.
    Takara Blackarachnia: Love the update.
    Botcon Antagony: SO happy to have found this one. To quote myself- "Takes an already awesome Inferno mold and makes it stunning."
    Takara Legends Shockwave: The beautiful purple was worth the price of admission.
    CW Prowl: I just really, really like this figure.
    Botcon Spark: I liked this mold as Onslaught. It rules as Spark.
    Revoltech Megatron: Awesome as a fiddle-with figure.
    TR Triggerhappy: Not perfect, but easily the best of the entire TR line. Harkens back to days of yore (ie. HftD).

    I didn't even buy 16 toys in 2016, let alone 16 Transformers.

    I bought three TFs: MP Hot Rod, Ironhide, and Ratchet.

    I love all three of them! But Hot Rod's my favorite.
