    It may be a little early to do this but I wonder what you guys think was the best when it comes to the following things.

    Best Overall Legends, Scout, Deluxe, FAB, Voyager, or Leader Figure

    Best Looking Legends, Scout, Deluxe, etc. etc.

    Most Fun Transformation/Play Legends, Scout, Deluxe, etc.

    Worst Overall/Worst Looking/Most Frustrating Transformation of any class.

    Please also consider: Which class had the best toys of this line (so far), Best overall toy in this line, Worst overall toy in this line, and Best toy for kid under 5 years old. (changed from 8)

    Best Overall
    Legends- Bumblebee
    Scout- Depth Charge is my fav
    Deluxe- Sideswipe or Breakaway
    Voyager- Long Haul
    HUman Alliance- Bumblebee
    Leader- I guess I'll have to go with Optimus even if I don't find it meets the amount of praise it gets

    Best Looking
    Legends- Megatron...goofy limbs aside the color scheme on it is really nice
    Scout- Knockout...its just aestetically pleasing to my eye
    Deluxe- Sideswipe
    Voyager- Long Haul
    Human Alliance- Bumblebee
    Leader- Again Optimus. It is very screen accurate

    Most Fun Transformation/Play
    Legends- Optimus has the most involved Transformation of the Legends I own
    Scout- Ejector. It's pretty simple but I still like its twists and turns
    Deluxe- Sideswipe
    Voyager- Mixmaster
    Human Alliance- Bumblebee
    Leader- Jetfire

    Worst Overall/Worst Looking/Most Frustrating Transformation
    Legends- None...for what they are I think they're all pretty decent
    Scout- None...I think they're all great
    Deluxe- Blazemaster for overall worst, Arcee had me pretty frustrated the first couple times trying to transform it
    Voyager- Demolishor
    Human Alliance- I don't think it's bad neccessarily but Sideswipe wasn;t as nice as I'd hoped it would be
    Leader- Megatron

    Which class had the best toys of this line (so far)
    Overall I'd have to say Scouts

    Best overall toy in this line
    Human Alliance Bumblebee.

    Worst overall toy in this line
    Blazemaster thanks to the floppy awful robot mode. I wish I'd skipped it along with the Ice Cream truck.

    Best toy for kid under 8 years old
    I don't collect FABs but I'd assume any of those would be great for a kid under 8.

    - Scout - Ejector
    - Deluxe - Sideswipe

    Best Looking
    - Scout - Scalpel
    - Deluxe - Sideswipe
    - Voyager - Demolishor
    - Human Alliance - Sideswipe

    - Deluxe - Sideswipe
    - Voyager - Mixmaster
    - Leader - Megatron

    Worst Overall/Worst Looking/Most Frustrating Transformation

    - Deluxe - Arcee
    - Voyager - Starscream (new mold)
    - Leader - Jetfire

    Which class had the best toys of this line (so far) - Scout class

    Which class had the worst toys of this line (so far) - Leader class

    Best overall toy in this line - Sideswipe (Deluxe)

    Worst overall toy in this line - Arcee (Deluxe)

    Best toy for kid under 8 years old - Devastator (Supreme). This is the kind of toy I would have absolutely loved when I was a kid.

    I'll go with "too early". Heck, one could argue it's too early for a roundup of Animated toys. :)

    I've yet to open my ROTF collection yet, give it a few weeks. The ones I have doubles of though I can certainly comment on:

    Leader Optimus Prime - Best overall figure. I won't have to get another transformer to know this. This guy is the real deal.

    Deluxe Skids and Mudflap - These guys are pretty damn frustrating to transform. Panels are tough as hell to line up, but look great when they do.

    Human Alliance Bumblebee/Sideswipe - Epic win on both these guys. Bumblebee is by far the better figure, but Sideswipe holds his own. The entire HA line will be GREAT!

    For my own personal thoughts:

    Best Overall....

    Legends: Idk I don't have any from ROTF

    FAB: Don't have any of these at all

    Deluxe: Out of the ones I have, Breakaway

    Voyager: Don't have

    Leader: Don't have yet

    Best Looking....

    Legends: Scavenger from the Devastator set

    FAB: Optimus Prime? I thought he looked good

    Deluxe: Sideswipe

    Voyager: Long Haul

    Leader: Optimus Prime :cool: 

    HA: Bumblebee

    For most frustrating transformation.... that I have, it would be Interrogator Barricade going from robot to car mode but he doesn't really count so I'll have to say Sideways.

    Most fun transformation.... probably my Jazz repaint Smokescreen but he doesn't count either so I'll say Skids :D 

    Best for a 5 year old a FAB because they don't break off like the others as much and are so easy. Or simply a Gravity bot or even RPM (if they don't put it in their mouth)

    Worst Looking I would have to say Voyager Megatron, Legends Jetfire, Gravity Bots Mudflap, Deluxe Arcee, and of the three Leaders, Jetfire. Other than that, the other classes don't have horrible looking toys.

    I only have Deluxes out of the line but from what I hear and see the Scouts seem to be the best. After that the Leaders.

    I'm only doing the classes I've bought.

    Best Overall

    Legends, Optimus Prime.

    Deluxe, Either Sideswipe, Jolt, or Soundwave

    Voyager, Megatron

    Best Looking

    Legends, Springer

    Deluxe, Jolt

    Voyager, Starscream

    Most Fun Transformation/Play

    Legends, Jetfire

    Deluxe, Sideswipe

    Voyager, Starscream's transformation is amazingly fun, but Megatron has more playability.

    Worst Overall/Worst Looking/Most Frustrating Transformation of any class.

    Worst ROTF figure I own? Skids. Too much backpack.

    ^ are you sure you transformed him correctly? He has a ton of backpack if you transform him the wrong way. There is a way to fold it all up into a little box at the top. I will update this post w/ pictures later.

    I really can't give a worst at the moment...

    I agree but so far my favorites:

    Leader Optimus
    Devastator
    Deluxe Ravage and Sideswipe

    The worst:
    Arcee (i mean WTF. really? this thing flops all over the place, is dumb to transform and the robot looks like you are constantly "doing it wrong")
    all of the legends class. I know some of you like em, but to me they all look like dollar store knock offs.
