    So, I was putting together some lists for my site, and one of them is my Top Ten licensed Transformers toys of 2012. I understand the year's not over, but I'm done getting anymore "official" TFs this year, and there are no store releases that I'm going to see within the next few days that I haven't already. The article is linked through the siggy.:

    The article has pictures and descriptions as to why I chose what I chose, but here's the list:

    What I wanna' know is what you guys have as your top TFs from this year? I'm big into third party, but looking back and focusing on the official stuff I got this year, Has/Tak/TFCC has really put out some nice stuff.

    I really look forward to seeing what you guys see as your favorites too!

    I really love FOC Grimlock and Takara Unicron, which I just got today. :3
    I can't think of any more off-hand. I'll probably edit in more later.

    I've hardly gotten much at all, especially high-end stuff but of what I have gotten I've really liked PRid Arcee and Knockout for their simple but fun transformations, great articulation (Which I think has hurt other figures like Wheeljack and Ratchet) and cool weapons. They're just both fun figures.

    From what I've seen from reviews/photos Masterpiece Optimus looks like a clear winner hands down, but I like the looks of Thundertron for his sheer originality, not often we get a figure of brand new off the wall character and Takara's Lio inspired edition is just fantastic. The G2 Combaticons are cool for their sheer craziness as well. Hopefully I might be able to get some of these guys next year.

    Personally, I think it was nice, but it wasn't "standout" enough to go over the toys I put on my own list. It kicks ass, though.

    Btw, nice picks guys. Glad to see some MP-10 love!

    In my opinion, here are the top 12 from 2012 (in no particular order):

    -MP Thundercracker
    -MP Sideswipe
    -MP Red Alert
    -FE Optimus (Takara version)
    -FOC Shockwave
    -Prime Mainline Vehicon
    -GDO Hot Spot
    -SDCC G.I. Joe Shockwave HISS Tank
    -Dark Energon Wheeljack
    -Botcon SG Junkions
    -FE Starscream
    -MP Sunstorm

    Honorable mentions: GDO Springer, GDO Wheelie, Dark Energon Bumblebee, Bot Shots Jetfire, Bot Shots Powerglide, MP-10 (which would be in my list, except that instead I got the Takara version, which came out in 2011).
