    I never got into the Voyager class figures because of the prices but lately I have really been enjoying them more and more.

    My 2 favorites so far are:

    Classics Voyager Jetfire (Had the G1 toy as a kid YEARS ago)

    Voyager Blades (I know he is a rehash of something else but I really enjoy it)

    Anyone else have certain favs?

    I have a few favorites (DOTM Skyhammer, 2.0 Inferno, RTS Lugnut, ROTF Mindwipe), but I think Classics Jetfire takes it.

    Surprisingly, I consider it to be a highly underrated figure.

    People actually said Classics Jetfire? I LOVE Jetfire, but that wasn't a very good toy. It's feet aren't large enough to handle how back-heavy the toy is, the leg ratchets are set so far apart they limit poseability and the helmet gimmick makes him look like he has a shrunken head with the helmet off or an enormous melon head when he has it on. I see Classics Jetfire as a very poor example of what voyagers can be.

    I'd say HftD Battle Blades Optimus Prime, RotF Bludgeon, Universe Inferno or RTS Lugnut. All very fun molds.

    Grapple definitely gets my vote too, I forgot about him.

    I am surprised to hear people say Inferno. He is definitely awesome but I hear a lot of complaints about his lack of a ladder. (Yes I know there is an aftermarket add-on).

    Ladder or not, it's still a pretty fantastic mold.

    Funny, because I consider him highly overrated. I don't think I've ever seen such terrible articulation design before. He's a mash-up of all the worst bits ever, and it makes him look incredibly awkward.

    My personal favourites are, in no particular order:

    Animated Bulkhead
    Animated Shockwave
    RtS Lugnut
    DotM Skyhammer
    Henkei Convoy

    The Classics Megatron mold also grew on me a lot after the recent United release. I'm now proud to have him as my Megatron, whereas the previous Classics and Henkei releases had me going, "eh".

    Well, if I see 15-20 more people echo your sentiments, then I guess there's a case for it being overrated. But until then, I think you're the first person I've seen call Jetfire overrated.

    I am hoping that my Jetfire comes in the mail in a week or two, and then he may reign supreme. From my limited collection, I have been very impressed with Skyhammer. Awesome in both modes, well armed, and lots of posts for being over-armed.

    I quite like Long Haul too (or is it Payload - I have the Yellow version which is an awesome deco IMHO.)

    To be honest though, I love the Voyager class - lots going on and beefy enough not to feel fragile where a deluxe can if it gets too complicated.

    When he came out, everybody was saying that he was "the best figure ever" and such hyperbole. It was a pretty common opinion.

    I never like him much then, either.

    Maybe he's so overrated that he's now considered underrated.

    ROTF Bludgeon is my personal favorite, since he's everything the original Bludgeon was famous for and a whole lot more. He's also one of the few movie figures that I think work better in the Classics division of my collection (although admittedly I bypass this by having my movie Cons right next to the Classics, so he just straddles the suppopsed "division line" between the two)

    Inferno comes in at a close second. A VERY close second.

    Well, part of it is that they're complaining it isn't an update to G1 Inferno. It's actually G2 Inferno according to the box, and that figure was virtually the same as G1 Inferno but had a giant water gun attached to the ladder. I personally think the figure works better without the ladder, as it would just be too cumbersome to not get in the way in robot mode.
