Mp Megatron looks impresive, but to me, his sheer fagility would keep him off the list.

MP3 SoundWave is a toy that real pushes the idea of merging toy and tech, so I love it! I don't have one yet, but I still suport this figure and hope to see more things like this get made. Especialy since realy, as tech prices drop, there is no reson to take existing cool product and wrap it in a TF shell!

As for MP Prime, well...

I can always find a way to complain about how to make something better, including this guy. But concerning him, that list is realy, realy short!

Good Good Transformers, here's hoping this is just the start to your growing greatness!

The Takara owned Transformers line in Japan was gearing up to produce a Unicron toy for its 1998 Beast Wars Neo line! But it, like it's G1 counterpart in the mid 80's, was never produced. A prototype was exhibited at the Tokyo Toy Fare. I would give my right arm for this figure. Judge for yourself:

Z, I think it's safe to say we'd all glady give a limb for that little piece of history.

Hell on the topic of Unicron, I wouldn't ming getting my hands on this as well!

There were 8 Transformers in all on Toyfare's best 100 in the last 10 years list. Nine (or would it be 10?) if you count the Star Wars Transformers Millennium Falcon (which I don't) at #27.

#80) WST Starscream
#75) Alternators Meister
#73) Classics Grimlock
#52) Armada Unicron
#46) Classics Devestator
#43) Music Label Soundwave
#17) Masterpiece Megatron
#1) 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime

Wait, Classics Grimlock made the list?! I mean, I like him and all, but I might not even rank him among the top 100 toys in my (tiny, compared to many of you guys!) collection, let alone of the past 10 years. And I didn't even like the look of Classics Devastator enough to pay $10 for him when I saw him discounted at WalMart.

I think this just goes to show that the large majority of ToyFare readers -- and hence the ones voting in said poll -- are huge Transformers fans. :P

I hope MP Prime didn't get the #1 slot just because of the Transformer movie right now...it's weird, I feel more disappointed than pleased that a TF took #1. I think I'm overrationalizing it and thinking that MP Prime didn't deserve the top spot.

Also, remember the Classics price guide they did a few months back, and some of us were commenting on how some were mistransformed? Spider-Man receives a letter from a fan about it and Optimus comes in and explains why, saying that a buncha Transformers went on a bar crawl for Ratchet's birthday (seriously...I am not kidding). If we make Prime liking pickles official canon material, then we can do the same for Ratchet's birthday ritual.

No, they've been putting him at the top of "best of" lists for years. The ToyFare guys usually know awesome when they see it.

I get Toyfare every month. I'm not sure if that is a good thing, but they do definatey love the MP Prime. Are you all saying that out of the Hasbro versions the talking base on it worse? In what ways? Just the cartoon piant-job or is there more? The talking base doesn't bother me but this is the 2nd time TF magazine has had this figure at the top of a best toys list and seeing as how I can get one I don't want to not have it.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
