    Does it make me a crazy person that the most enjoyable transformers size class for me personally is the legends class? I just always seem to run into quality control problems with anything else. These little guys never fail me.

    i'm not a real fan of the Legends class myself, I like the Voyager and Deluxe class robots better.

    Maybe I'm crazy. Maybe you're crazy. Maybe we're crazy. Possibly.

    I like Legends, too. I have a bunch. I just wish there were more. They're great for fiddling and some of them are pretty clever.

    No, no it doesn't. From what I've seen there is at least some that share the same opinion.

    Personally I'm not a huge fan of them (they aren't all that available around me, so that definitely has some affect). I'm more into Deluxe's and Voyager's. Though I do find the Legends fun in alt-mode, as they remind me of Hot Wheels cars (which I had a lot of as a child). Also, while I understand the price, part of me thinks they're overpriced.

    The most fun I've had with size classes goes something like

    Deluxe > Scout > Voyager/Ultra > Leader > Legend > Minicon.

    Legends Devastator is mint though.

    I used to collect Legends when I could find them consistently. Now I'll get the occasional one or two (right now I have the clear BB from the first movie in Japan, Uni Wheelie, and ROTF Wheelie)

    On that same note, ROTF Wheelie is awesome.

    I'll jump in the boat with you. I love me some Legends. Hasbro could have stuck with some relatively basic transformations and articulation with the little guys, but they keep showing us otherwise. More and more the smaller classes like Legends and Scouts sport some pretty unique twists and turns, even compared to their bigger brothers.

    I used to avoid legends completely. Recently, however, I've really taken a liking to them (especially since they've been getting some decent store exclusives like Spark Crusher and that Wheelie clone from the recent Target 2 pack). I kind of dig them now.

    Legends have been hit and miss with me, but I enjoy many of them for scale reasons. Also, Legends Devastator is fairly nifty.

    You are posting on a fan site where a lot of adults talk about huge robots from another planet who change into cars and jets, if that doesn't make you crazy I don't know what does.

    On the bright side since you are already crazy now you don't have to worry about how you enjoy the legends size class.

    Legends rock! The Classics/universe minispies are excellent and fun (and we got COSMOS!! Cosmos FTW!). Animated Prowl and Bumblebee both fit in scale wise with Activators Prime and Ratchet with Voyager Bulkhead as a small scale hero group. Despite my loathing for ROTF, I think Jolt is a fantastic little guy; I had also picked up the Target Legends pack on clearance ($4.98) and was surprised at how good they are, as I had gotten the set at that price just for Sparkcrusher. The upcoming Ravage also looks like a worthy buy as well.

    On top of being fun little guys, they're great for populating Metroplex, Brave/Grand/Fortress Maximus, and the other "playset" TFs.

    Also they're ideal for scale nazi's who want to create a lineup of TFs all in alt mode scale to each other and need the small carbots to balance out the sheer size of the jetcons.

    Bottom line, Legends are great.

    Vangelus on the podcast has called Legends "Toys for poor childen." In jest I'm sure. Anyway, I think Legends rock as well. They are a challenge to keep up with, there are so many!

    Read the top of my sig for insight on mentally deviant behavior.

    preferring the Legends class above others is not a mental defect; rather it shows a clarity of thought and focus.

    our reasons for liking certain classes ain't a bad thing.
    Liking an obviously terrible toy, well, that is.

    Legends are cool. I do not buy many but I do like the ones I buy.

    The biggest reason for QC usually being great on legends is they have the fewest moving pieces and there fore the least chances to screw up something and same goes for paint apps.

    Nope, I really like the Legends toys too. They're pretty damn fun, and pretty cheap too. And like you said, I've never had a Legends with poor QC.
