    I know some tfs are pretty darn difficult to transform (big convoy, sideburn, etc)and i believe they are only a level 3. Who out there actually caries a skill level of 4 or higher? off the top of my head, i can't ever recall a maximum skill level tf

    the skill level on the box doesnt really mean much..if thats wat ur talking about
    all leader class figure have a level 4 transformation...IMO, the smaller ones, especialy some deluxes, are much harder to transform than the larger leader class figures...i find this especially true for the movie figures (i have only movie and animated figures, so u'll want more opinions here :D  )

    Deluxe TF Universe Prowl and Sunstreaker are a challenge to me, same goes for TFTm Bumblebee and TFTM Starscream, Optimus. Barricade also comes on the list. If my memory serves me right me and my wife used to check how many minutes I did the transformation of TFTM Bumblebee and Barricade. I'll try to check my mobile phone if its still there.

    The upcoming 25th Anniversary Optimus Prime has level 3 on his box, that's when you know the rating system is messed up

    I seem to remember Ultimate Bumblebee is a LVL 4.

    If MP Megatron ever made it to the states (which will never happen) he'd have to be a 5!

    and that certainly matches his skill level. I still haven't made an omega prime yet because I don't have UM's instructions so he sits in his car carrier mode... :(

    (I'll just go by the numbers here, not what I think as difficult.)

    What level was Magmatron when he was sold by Hasbro?
    Japanese TFs have technical point stars and he has 10.

    God Magnus has 6 technical stars so apparently the grading is different, though :)  AFAIK only Magmatron and Gigatron have 10 stars. (Big Convoy has 7.)

    Agreed - The alternators by far have the most complex transformations out of all the lines...(IMO)

    The Ford Mustang car mold for the Alternator line (Grimlock and Wheeljack) was the most difficult and possibly the most hated of the line. The other alternators aside from Mirage were fairly easy once you did them 2 or 3 times. Masterpiece/20th Anniversary Prime is quite simple if you ask me. And then there's Masterpiece Starscream... I've only transformed him from robot mode to jet and back. I'd have to look at the instructions each and every time if I ever transform him again.

    I own tons of deluxe TFs and I can't really say any of them are "hard" to transform, not even the movie BBs or new universe guys. Infact Prowl and Sunny are downright simple imo, though prowl's doors can get a bit tricky if they're at the wrong angle when you try and transform them. The car brothers would be the hardest deluxe TFs imo, but then again I don't have too much trouble with them either.

    Alt grimlock though is a complete and heinous bitch. I don't think I've ever transformed him without his doors, legs and ass-panel falling off. Though his absurdly tight waist joint that prevents him from twisting as he should is certainly a factor.

    The hardest was MP05 Megatron for me. He made Big Convoy look like Minibot Gears.

    I agree but the most complex part of it is doing reverse transformations especially with the Mustang mold. The forward transformations are not a problem.

    I'm awaiting with great terror, unboxing and transforming MP Skywarp since he came in jet mode. I'm scared to death I'll break him. Thanks God WM Screamer came in bot mode. Same for MP Megs.

    This. The stiff joints conspire with thin flat panels, enough to make my heart rate double whenever transforming him. He's too expensive to break!

    Aside from alternators and Masterpiece, which we all know are the hardest to transform because the amount of engeenring put on them, Movie Starscream was the hardest of that line, and I also vote for RiD magnus. For beast wars, Magnaboss was the hardest for me.

    I checked some of my boxes (2 of them)...Movie Leader Brawl says level 4, as well as my RID Prime.
