    I'd say Robovision Prime and the Barricade/Bumblebee 2-pack. You'll have enough left over for a nice big Slurpee.

    Voyager Starscream, Deluxe Bumblebee and Scout Arcee - instant party under $40. One big bad vs. two underdogs.

    *or*

    Robovision Optimus Prime, Deluxe Bonecrusher and Scout Hard-top. Flip it and reverse it.

    I know it's not very helpful, but I'd say pick up any two voyagers, or, if you have a good selection at your local Target, pick up Barricade, Bumblebee, Wreckage, and Jazz, or Robovision Prime, Barricade, and Bumblebee.

    If it were me, I like the character Ironhide, so I would have had to get the Voyager, and then also robo-vision Prime. If you don't care for Ironhide, I'd say Barricade and BB combo.

    Nobodys been suggesting Blackout, is he a good toy? He sure looks awesome, he's practically the most bad@ss looking toy.

    Get 4 Deluxes. Or, go to Target during the $7.99 sale, and get 5 of 'em. More bang for your buck.

    Ironhide and Starscream!

    Or Ratchet if your not hot for Screamer but Ironhide for sure.

    Edit: Now that I think of it might want to track down Robo-Vision Prime sooner rather then later as he wont be around long and the toys really good.

    Blackout looks great. He's just a crappy toy (compared to the others).

    If you're going to only have one voyager, get either SS, Ratchet, or Voyager Prime. Or a combo of one of the two if you aren't going to pick up any deluxes. Get SS and Prime, they'll make a nice vs. display.

    Get one Voyager (I couldn't recommend one yet as I haven't picked them up yet) or get two deluxes (Bumblebee and Barricade would be my recommendation). Oh, wait. You're in the US. You can buy both of those things for $40. Go for it.

    Id go to target during their sale and get, 2 deluxes and a Robot vision Prime.

    As far as which two deluxes Id go with Bumblebee and either Barricade or Swindle.

    If it will be a few months before you can spend more on the movie toys get Robo-vision Prime and hold out for voyager Megatron. If you will have some more money soon then get Robo-vision Optimus Prime and the Bumblebee vs. Barricade 2-pack.

    I thought Blackout was disappointing. His automorph is a pain and he's pretty small. He's not bad but he wasn't as strong as I hoped.

    I know the question was prefaced by saying no Leader Class toys, but for $40, you gotta go with Prime. Far and away the best toy in the movie line right now.

    Any combination of these three...Voyager Blackout, Ironhide, RV Prime. A good substitute for 1 voyager class would be deluxe Barricade and '08 BB (when he comes out).

    I'd say one of the following lots:
    Voyager SS and Voyager Ironhide
    Voyager SS, Deluxe Barricade, Deluxe of your choice
    Voyager Ironhide and Voyager Blackout
