One of the biggest reasons why the original G1 Transformers cartoon made such a lasting impression on me was that it was full of visually interesting characters with uniquely distinct personalities. From the noble Optimus Prime to the treacherous Starscream, almost every single character from this rather large cast had at least one trait or quirk that made them instantly identifiable to their target audience.

No this isn’t a mistake. I know 2018 is far from over but like I said in one of my previous “best of” posts, I promised to change things up with regards to my best of lists because at the rate I was going, I was looking at doing a top 25 or 2025. So I figured this would be a good time to try something different.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, I don’t think it will come as a surprise to you when I say I buy a sh*tload of toys every year. Every January, I go over my toy display wracking my head and trying to figure out what my favorite purchases of the previous year were. And considering the amount of stuff I buy in a year’s time, that definitely isn’t an easy task. So this year I resolved to diligently take note of EVERY toy I buy in an effort to make writing next year’s top of list easier to compile. Anyway, heading into April I have faithfully kept track of every toy that has joined my toyshelf since the new year began and this gave me an idea of something I could do different from my usual “best of” list.
