    Thanks for doing the fan vote once again... it looks like there was a fair bit of work involved with the votes that required an answer to be typed in (like the favourite online retailer).
    268 votes sounds like a record number?


    The ratings questions (out of five) appear to give different results depending on if you note the most voted number, or the average score.
    For example, the Cyberverse cartoon ended up with a rating of 3 (as that number had the most votes), while the average was 3.5, however, the Netflix cartoon had a rating of 4 (the most votes were cast for 4), but the average was lower at 3.1.
    So even though the Netflix cartoon got a final result that was higher than the Cyberverse cartoon based on which number had the most votes, the average for Cyberverse was higher.
    A bit like voting... sometimes it is the candidate who gets the most votes who wins, and sometimes it is the candidate that absorbs enough votes from allies to get the majority, even if they didn't get the most votes themselves.

    Thanks Paul for a good job and nice header graphic too! I'm not surprised Netflix Bee and Soundwave were well received - makes me think Buzzworthy Studio Series releases of these could turn up.

    Lies, damned lies, and statistics... hee hee. Or modes, medians and means. I can't access the raw data so I can't tell how skewed the data are, and that determines which measure of central tendency to use.

    The survey site's locked down the report (because I went back to basic plan) but a backup can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Szy...ew?usp=sharing

    Good points about those rating questions... something to look a bit closer at next year, please read the results for those as "most common answer".

    Good stuff.

    Looks like I should have voted for Huffer instead of Pipes so that mould could claim top spot.

    Not sure why the Studio Series got broken down between Bayverse and 86?

    22 anticipated toy surprised me. Though I was expecting to see some of the other figures there listed like the other Stunticons and Pointblank.

    My thinking there was the toys that are live-action movie are so different to the cartoon-move ones (and I thought the live-action ones would have no hope of winning against Hot Rod, Scourge, Jazz etc)

    Only included officially announced toys in that question, not anything from store listings/rumours/leaks. I wanted people to vote on toys they've actually seen.
