    What's your favorite class size? Price excluded. What do you find yourself transforming most often or marveling at?

    Legends are nice as they harken back to the early days of Transformers. Simple and easy.

    Scouts are good, with that extra bit of complexity, but they feel a bit cheap or so with the hollowed out plastic.

    Deluxe are the nice mid point. Good articulation with ball joints and pivots. Sometimes very involved and a good size to them.

    Voyagers have that thicker plastic and feel very solid in hand. Nice size to them with some added detail.

    Human Alliance is off to a good start. Complexity, solid. Sometimes articulation is not the best.

    Leaders are nice because they are big and feel good in hand, but are sometimes a bit too complex and have a bit too much kibble around. Poseability might suffer from being taller and thicker plastic.

    Or any size that isn't listed...

    I guess I like me a good Voyager.

    depends on the bot...

    I prefer deluxe and voyager normally. As leader takes too long to fiddle and play with

    My favorite size is hard to decide Leaders have the most detail while there are more deluxes so it is hard to say.

    I say my fave would likely be voyager/HA size since they have great details that deluxes don't have,and are handheld without it being too bulky.Also their price range is as good as it gets between $20-$24 mostly for the voyagers not the HA's. So thats my opinion.

    Lately, deluxes. Affordable, posable and overall cool. Also there's more to choose from usually.

    Deluxes. Voyagers and up are pushing the limits of prices way to much. Especially Leaders are way more expensive than they are worth. Even deluxes are overpriced, but make up for it by being just the right size. Legends are great but not really worth getting and scouts are great too.

    I'm an absolute SUCKER for Deluxes and that size. Love the size and detailing, and the price is right (usually).

    Voyager. I always felt this was the best size for price, detail and durability mix.

    A well executed Voyager is usually my preference.

    Scout class figures really manage to hit me right. Especially during ROTF/HFTD. Knock Out, Hubcap, etc. Love em' all.
    But in the same breath, there's Deluxes to consider. Which manage a lot.
    I would like Voyagers. But lately they've kind of shrunk... making them nothing more then a deluxe class. really.

    Leader and Human Alliance. Leader for larger characters like Prime, Megatron, etc.... Human Alliance for characters with car based modes.

    I like the detail, I like the size.

    Depends on the bot. I don't like cars in the deluxe size. Prefer Scout cars.

    On a side note, Scouts feel cheap but Legends don't? Legends are the cheapest looking TF's ever. Took a chance on Jazz and Hound. Hound is one of my all time favourite Autobots but that Legend toy is hideous. Legends Jazz is the worst representation of the character since his Pretender inner bot.

    I love Leader Class toys. Very accurate to the shows or movies (most) of the time, but because they cost too much. I go for the deluxe because their second best. just the right size and detail.

    Deluxe, followed by Voyager. Ultra+ should be reserved for truly huge characters, and Scouts and below are just too small to fit nicely with the rest of the collection.
