    Voyager - comes down to what concessions you are comfortable with IMHO.

    Shockwave - great paint, great bot mode, "meh" alt mode IMHO.
    Megs - smallish but, great bot mode and great alt mode. (My pick)
    Ironhide - good in both modes but has a couple warts (arms, truck bed, mech tech ports), yet I still love him.
    Skyhammer - people love him, but to me he's just not "movie" enough if that makes sense.

    Deluxes:
    Starscream or Ratchet - great BUT these are way out of scale though.
    Wreckers - hit or miss depending on which one you go with - probably Top Spin (blue) if you can get him.
    Crankcase - people like him but again, wayyyy out of scale.
    As for other deluxes, they are nice but also seem to be lacking paint, e.g. Bee and Sideswipe.
    My pick here would be: wait for dlx Soundwave.

    Leader:
    Only 3 choices and all are passes IMHO.
    Sentinel Prime - out of scale in alt mode and has to me what is the most irritating transformation I've yet to come across. A tab-tastic nightmare IMHO (and I loved Rotf Leader Prime.) Plus his deco is just drab.
    Ironhide - kibble-fest with a wonky color scheme, but if you're into gimmicks prolly the best of the leaders available.
    Bee - can you say backpack? Is supposedly OK without the backpack but then what are you paying for?

    Voyager: Shockwave or Skyhammer are beyond awesome, but Ironhide and Megs are good too.

    Deluxes: Roadbuster and Crankcase are my favs, but Starscream and Sideswipe are cool too.

    Leader: Sentinel Prime, nuf said.

    Ldr Sentinel Prime
    Megatron

    The backpack sucks in bot mode but the Stealthforce mode which is in the instructions is actually awesome especially mechteched up. This makes the figure worth buying in my opinion but others may not agree.

    Scroll down for the pics.

    That said for a leader i would recommend Ironhide. He is just awesome. SP is number two for leaders.

    As for voyager i have to say Skyhammer, Shockwave, Megatron and sentinel are all worth getting.

    Can't really recommend a single figure other than Leader Ironhide. Overall great figure.

    scream and cracker are great molds, as for Voyager I'll have to give it to Megs. and for Leader.... Ironhide.

    Voyager Megs and Deluxe Scream looks great together.
