This is something that can be done every year, so here is one for 2016!
Here are the rules: These are toys that you bought in 2016, not ones that came out only in 2016; also, these are figures based on how much you enjoy them, not necessarily how good they are. and with that in mind, let's go!
16) Combiner Wars Trailbreaker
my favorite of the limbs from this year, retail release wise. His HFG makes a great forcefield generator and he looks awesome as an arm. Plus, I love his colors and his character.
15) Generations Drift
Been on my radar for a while now, and finally found one at a good price. Shout out to the awesome Shajaki for the sword! I owe you a beer buddy!
14) Robots In Disguise Bisk
This year was awesome for RiD cons, and this guy was a good one. Love a lobster bot.
13) Combiner Wars Thundercracker
Another guy that has been on my radar. Really good figure, and I love the character, so I'm glad to have picked him up. Well worth it.
12) Generations Warpath
A masterpiece worthy figure that was also a find at a great price. awesome figure, can't recommend enough.
11) Titans Return Wolfwire/Blurr
Couldn't really differentiate how good these 2 were, so I tied them up at 1. Yes you can do that, shut up. Both are really awesome figures from the line, go get them.
10) Animated Shockwave
Another figure on the wait list, and one that was at an amazing price on ebay. Really fun double spy. Me likey.
9) Titans Return Cerebros
Love this little guy. Fort Max may be the big boy, but this guy is the star of the show. I recommend Fort Max purely for Cerebros.
Finally got a G1 toy, and it is a good one. Love it, and I wish all G1 toys were like this guy.
7) Hunt for the Decepticons Seaspray
Alright, a figure that was off my radar, came on, bought and delivered within a week. This guy is me if I weren't out of shape and if I could actually dive. I love the concept of sea-formers and of diving, so this guy is a dream come true.
6) Robots in Disguise Thunderhoof
Best RiD figure of the year. I've said enough for the past 9 months for this guy.
5) Combiner Wars Strafe/Computron
Best combiner overall of the sets. Really good figures, Strafe is my favorite, but I count him in with Computron. Scrounge is a lovely bonus.
4) Universe Overload
This guy is so high not because he's good, but because he is so fun. Real big, chunky, easy to transform, yet posable. Love him to death, and he'll blow you up with missiles.
3) Titans Return Rewind
My mascot. the little guy goes with me almost everywhere. plus, he's a triple changer, so he has that going for him. and he's cute.
2) Titans Return Alpha Trion/Lione
Best TR figure to me. I ignore his spaceship mode mostly and I love his lion mode. Sawback/Lione goes with him as a set, and I am so happy to have got this pair.
1) Masterpiece Shattered Glass Optimus Prime
Yeah, I know. but I'll stop talking about him when he stops being so damn good.
That's a wrap folks! Hope you enjoyed, and let's get some lists going!
