Hoist’s Top Ten Transformers – TF: Animated

Welcome to Hoist’s Top Ten Transformers series! In these articles, I will be showing off the top ten transformers figures from my collection. The top ten from each toy line will be chosen and the series will culminate in an overall top ten.

It’s funny that I set that up meaning to be a way to advertise the blog over here, but that has ended up being what I spend most of my time using. I think it’s because of the nearly instantaneous feedback over there and practically built in fan base, not to mention being able to interact with some other great pages.

Anyway. I’ll still be spending my time there, but occasionally I get the urge to write some longer article than what is appropriate in a  Facebook post. One of those topics is Hoist’s Top Ten Transformers. I got the idea from another page over on the ‘Book (Bombshell the Insecticon), but I haven’t been able to narrow it down to just ten. My first crack at it only got me down to 58! Ha! Since I can’t narrow down my favorite TF toys to only ten without going through at least one preliminary round first.
