I'd have to pick the Pursuit of Cobra figure line over the Iron Man 2 line, just because there are so few peg-warmers in that line, and several army builders. It's just too bad that the distribution internationally was crap. We still haven't seen them in Asia (except in hobby shops at insane prices). How bout you guys in Australia?

Love both Abomination and the Galactus figures. Those babies are probably the two best purchases I made last year.

Have to disagree with you on the DCUC figures, but I'll admit it's because I've got so little idea who most of the characters in the newer waves are. I do like Iron, but I would've gone with the new Deadpool figure. Or maybe the Classic Predator from NECA. That thing has it's problems, but damned if it isn't the best looking Predator figure I've ever seen. And it's scaled with my DCUC Batman!

Best Under 6" Figure / Line - Marvel Universe. Much as there has been a fair amount of suck and repeat characters, there's also been some excellent figures (and unfortunately some excellent variants). I'm talking the main line, not the two packs, Spidey, or IM2 lines though.

Best 6" Male Figure - I'm torn between the ML Warpath (original costume) and the ML Winter Soldier. More likely Warpath as the character around longer in that form.

Best 6" Female Figure - ML Black Widow, modern version. I was set to love Valkyrie and then she had that uncanny valley inflatable doll expression.

6" Wave of the Year - I'm sure there was better than the ML 2-packs, but that was the main lot I had.

BAF of the Year - DCUC Darkseid

Best Over 6" / Under 18" Figure - Not one figure so much as a set of 4 but the Revoltech Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0 Collection (which I'm extremely pissed I missed out on by a few hours).

Best Over 18" Figure - Really we're talking the MU Galactus or a Deluxe figure here. One is affordable, the other not so much.

Best Bust / Mini-Bust - While not a bust it's the same sort of size so, DC Direct's Gotham City Stories Joker.

Best Statue - Kotobikuya's Bishoujo Phoenix/Dark Phoenix.

Best Statue Series - Kotobikuya's Bishoujo line. It' fun and affordable.

The WTF? Award - I'm actually going for the Marvel Universe 2-pack line. It started brilliantly with the Secret Wars line, then we got the next two waves introducing one new character each, along with a bunch of repaints and minor variants. All of that and we still don't have a widely available Astonishing X-Men Wolverine. But Sinister Spider-man, yeah we needed to have that guy.
