I am pleased to announce that transformers managed to come in 12th place on channnel 4's "100 greatest toys with Jonathan Ross"
12th was a good place with some strong contenders!
I don't have any qoutes from the show, or anything like that, but it was a three-hour long program counting down so i think we were at about two hours 30 mins.

will update with more info if i can find it/be bothered to.
see ya around,

I fell asleep 2/3rds of the way though the program. 12th place is not bad at all.


You may want to mention that this was on TV in the UK.

Why is Wii #4 and Nintendo Consoles #5? Nintendo doesn't have any other consoles on the market that I'm aware of.

However, if this is one of those all time deals, then it makes sense. Sorta.

But Star Wars above Transformers? I'll agree to that. Were I still a youngling Star Wars would be the greatest thing since sliced bread to me.

D&D surprises me though.

I'm surprised consoles are that high - any named console, especially the "young" Wii are just temporary spaceholders, and will be forgotten in some years (and I don't see Commodore 64 on the list...)

Star Wars figures deserve the place, though. The brand has as much history as TFs.

It has - Nintendo DS, at the moment - though that could be listed under "Gameboy and other"


D&D surprises me though.


Me not, D&D as a brand is awesome - I played a lot of D&D based computer games (and tried out the RPG, for a small time) and read a lot of books based on the universes that were made with the D&D system - especially the Forgotten Realms - it has some of the most talented writers.

Dungeons and Dragons?

Plus I don't agree that consoles should be in there.

yea i think D&D could be because of what someone on the show actually said-roughly:
i think d & d is a bit of a suprise but not really as this was partly decided by an internet poll.
the people who played and or play D&D may well be th nerdyer, geekier types, who spend a lot of time on the internet and thus could get d+d so high.


LOL!
i have to say this made me laugh on the spot
