i only have a few minicons and think they're cool for the gimmickor or to combine ala perceptor or the sword/sheild guys. alone they just don't last long. basics, though simple transformations, were some of my favorites especially the BW/BM ones (hell, that's what i started with). then i grew up and they are so small now. deluxes are a close second behind the megas. both can fit in my hands just peachy. the megas always had a little extra something to them. ultras were cool because they were big and had complex transformations, but bulky and hard to play with sometimes. anything bigger was just display pieces. when i got alt smokescreen i loved it because they were just the right size for my hands.
