    I love voyagers. Somewhere between ultra and voyager would be great. not too big and not too small. Deluxe figs are great but lack the details. Leaders are can get pricey.

    Also, while I have your attention.
    Best galvatron fig?

    I prefer Deluxes myself because of the cheaper price point.

    1st of all while i have ur attn i have to say, everytime i c ur username i think of this: MY NAME IS...SANCHO.

    2nd, itd be great if most voyager had the articulation n balance of rotf bludgeon but most tend to be more simplistic. Deluxes tend to pack more punch pound for pound.

    To Ka; your like the 2nd person in the past 24hrs to say that.

    Deluxe figures look good. Imagine how epic a voyager copy of the seeker mold would have been.

    Since I'm a robot form scale lover, there is no one perfect size.

    I think Voyager is the best size class to convey the characters, and displaying. But Deluxe for playing with and price

    I'm happy with any size as long as it's a great mold, but for movie figures I'm a bit of a scale nut, so any size which matches the cars in deluxe size would be nice, such as Leader Prime/Brawl/Megatron, Voyager Ironhide/Ratchet and Legends Arcee, Ravage etc..

    Its really depends on the character for me....a voyager sized wheelie would silly to me...

    But to me its deluxes, then voyagers, scouts then leaders....not everybody deserve the leader treatment
    Legends pissed me off, becuz some of them deserve to be deluxe, maybe even scout sized

    There is no right scale/size class for me. Each and every one is special.

    As an aside I've enjoyed it more when the designers moved away from the 6" figures are 6" to allow for height variations even within a class. Note the awesomeness of deluxe Lockdown and how he fits in with Voyagers.

    I like for my jet figures to be bigger than my car figures, but I can't say I'd be happy if there was never a Deluxe-class jet made again. The Dirge/Jetblade mold comes to mind as a great Deluxe-class jet that I don't think could be improved by making it a Voyager. But I wouldn't need a Voyager-class Prowl or Sideswipe, for example. So there really isn't a one-size-fits-all size class for me.

    Deluxe for me. Good balance between cost and complexity, size and details.

    As for Galvatron, got to go with the original. Generation 1, Takara purple reissue edition.

    deluxe and voyager are tied for scale's sake, i like legends if the character fits there (eg. warpath and company)

    galvatron? personally i'd go with what sol fury said so far, unless he gets a better version

    Deluxe, with a balance on cost, size and playability.

    Ok...Deluxe Deluxe Deluxe.

    Everyone seems to love Deluxe. And ya...for a single toy; Deluxe for the win.
    But I mean...you pick it up, you play with it, you put him in a poss and done.

    But for display I like Legends. Because I can set up a battle across my book self with them.
    Even if I just have all the Autobot in car mode in a line of cars. That still looks cool because it looks like Prime is leading them somewhere.

    I'd say Voyager. The size class allows for bigger alt. modes and/or robots along with the occasional cool gimmick (I.E. Movie Long Haul's arm pistons and arm blades). Anything above the Voyager price point usually has some kind of lights/noises gimmick that has to be forced into a toy and can compromise its overall fun factor in my opinion, and anything below it has to make some sacrifices in the looks to be functional (unless it's scout class, which so far has only had one or two sucky figures since ROTF)

    I mostly buy Deluxes, because I'm cheap.

    I really Voyagers, though. I like them all. Picking a favorite is hard, but I think it's Voyager.

    I need more Voyagers......

    I'm in the league of Deluxes and Voyagers. I like my Transformers to be a bit in scale as well, preferring jets, tanks, and trucks to be bigger than cars. And why I would love a voyager Warpath. But to me it's a great little area to be in. Classics Bumblebee is an example of where design has him being a deluxe but end up standing shorter than most, if not all, of the other Classic Deluxe Autobots. And Cyclonus ends up being a nice tall deluxe figure.

    To me I like Deluxes. It also depends on the Character being represented.
