    I don't mind the changes as far as the Cyberverse classes go, but I feel the other two are really... arbitrary? Pointless?

    The Revealer/Poweriwhatever thing is a bit strange. Hell, I still use 'Scout' and 'Super' sometimes!

    I would love it if they replaced the name "leader" with a one or two syllable onamonapia such as the BAM! class or the KAZAM! class.

    I'd hope not. Leaders is perfect for the size. (Character, not so much)

    But I'm still calling them Deluxe, Voyager, Legends, and big Legends.

    Agreed. They kept on Cyberverse from DOTM, so why not keep Deluxes and Voyagers?

    I reckon it will cause confusion somewhere down the line. For example, the Prime Deluxes still say Deluxe on the packaging, but on Argos's stock computer they're called Revealers. I can just imagine a parent walking in to buy their kid a Deluxe Whatever and end up telling them that they couldn't buy the Deluxe Whatever because the Whatever was only available in Revealer.

    Seems a rather pointless change.

    Can't you call them Big Damn Legends, just for a shout-out? :lol

    Yet to further muddy the waters, Argos' own catalogue still calls them Deluxe & Voyager!

    Incidentally, when I picked up CJ today the woman on the check-out called it a 'Transformers Reveller' - it conjured up mental images of partying robots.

    And you had Cliffjumper, so let's face it, that would probably happen.

    I always chortled at "possible choking hazard" being displayed prominantly on the front of Watchmen's Rorschach action figure.

    I dont mind the change in size class names, since I guess its been a while since we had one (there was a period where they were changed much more often), but these particular names are... not my favorites.

    They're still "deluxe" and "voyager" to me.

    Me too, but If I were to make a suggestion I would recommend Leader Class to be called Ultra-nators, Mega-mites or the Superiors.

    Seems like a way to get away with shrinking them down.

    That's EXACTLY what I was thinking.

    I remember back when it was Basic-Deluxe-Mega-Ultra. Now those names make sense. Even if you aren't a "toy person," it's pretty obvious that an Ultra is bigger than a Basic.

    Powerizer? Revealer? What the hell does that mean?

    Considering how they appear to be downsizing the line, there may not be a Leader Class price point any more.

    I'm not keen on these particular size class names either, but I'm sure we'll get used to them eventually. I mean, I'm pretty sure we had this same sort of outrage when "Basic" was changed to "Scout" and "Mega" was changed to "Voyager", yet everyone seems to have accepted those by now.

    For that matter, what did "voyager" mean?

    Y'know, they should go with military ranks for class names. Ensign class, Lieutenant class, Commander class, Captain class, Admiral class. That sounds nice and intuitive for people to figure out.
