    Additional comments

    Fiction:
    "2012 was the best year for Transformers comics. Ever."

    "I'm really enjoying MTMTE, every issue is engaging and well-written, with consistently great art. Seeing a lot of previously minor transformers characters being fleshed-out as main characters is fantastic!"

    "IDW fixed their AHM/ongoing problem by hiring writers who love the franchise and who also respect what was written before them, and are producing stellar work while also fixing the wrongs of the previous writers. If not for IDW, Transformers fiction would be dead and uninteresting."

    "IDW's MTMTE was really the driver in my returning to following TF fiction on a regular basis. Reading MTMTE from Issue 6-7 onwards spurred me into collecting all the back issues, as well as the entire IDW-verse collection."

    "We are in a golden age of transformers, big screen, little screen, comics computer games and novels. and most of it better than any that's come before it."

    "Mtmte is the best thing to happen to transformers fiction. Ever. Can Roberts write everything to do with transformers, ever, until the end of time? Please?"

    "The War for Cybertron Prequel Comic was Bad, Bad art, Bad Story, BADBADBAD"

    "Transformers Prime's 2nd Season really started out strong but fell apart very quickly... Quite disappointing indeed, especially after a stellar 1st Season; Here's hoping the Predacons can bring this show up to scratch with the 3rd Season."

    "Unfortunately, Transformers Prime has been a let down this year"


    Toys
    "Botcon this year, such a crap selection of toys. Magnus is favoured only coz he has a see through head."

    "Disappointing as recent Transformers toys are not only smaller and lighter, but they have hollow parts wherever they can too (particularly the FOC Deluxes)."

    "Highlight of the year was the Takara FE premium deluxes/voyagers"

    "It would be worth paying an extra few $$ for the figures just to get the size back, especially with deluxes."

    "Many announced exclusives seemingly failed to ever remain 'Exclusive', with many seeing wider distribution than originally suggested."

    "Hasbro displayed an excellent ability at identifying a massive burgeoning market in China/South Asia & IMO succeeded in tapping said market with appropriate lines (Generations)"

    "Shattered Glass was novel FIVE years ago, but the oversaturation by the club has somewhat ruined that. I wish they'd give it a rest for a year or two at least."

    "Nice to see Masterpieces getting a local release, as well as Fall of Cybertron having a complement of toys."

    "Wished I didn't have to import the Asian Generations stuff but you know, Hasbro Australia sucking and all..."

    Congrats Griff and Snaketales. Both of your commitments to this forum are appreciated by us all and you continue to do the best for all of us.
    Most of the news was what I picked but some results were interesting.
    Here's to a great year of Ozformers.

    I was surprised to be typing that Wheelie was the winner of a category over more than a dozen other choices.

    I left Encore Fort Max out of the global news at first do a few people couldn't vote for it, but it wouldnt have changed the results, news of MP Soundwave was a strong winner. I'm sure that toy will rate highly next year.

    Great job as always Paulbot... a worthy Australia Day tradition here.

    Just a couple of cut and paste errors I think... (in case you didn't catch them)

    I think this was "accessories for a Transformers toy"...

    And this one was meant to be "creative stuff"...

    And this one is definitely wrong...

    Thanks to those who voted for me. You're cheque is in the mail
    I think it should go to Hursticon, as I have to work here... the other people actually earned their votes by choosing to contribute here.
    (I was hoping we'd have the alternative member vote that was discussed a few weeks back, that had us voting for more objective attributes)
