(animated leaders)Im really leaning towards megatron.
Megatron, he is awesome.
you need an option for all three
All very good, but Megatron has the other two beat
I only want to buy one right now.
All three, but if I'd have to pick one: Megatron
I would go for Magnus. More complicated transformation, more gimmicks. He is my personal favorite leader for animated.
For me, Ultra Magnus barely edges Megatron out for top spot. Although he is a great toy, the thing that bugs me about Megatron is his knock-knee appearance. You can somewhat fix this by sliding the lower leg plates out, but it's kinda annoying that you have to do anything at all to rectify it. Although, to be fair, Magnus has that quirky shoulder articulation.
The bottom line is, it's a win-win between Megs and Magnus. both are fantastic toys, and if possible, grab them both.
Bulkhead isn't bad either, but I really think the voyager version outshines the leader Bulky in nearly every way. Heck, the voyager Bulkhead is one the best TFs to come out in recent years, if you ask me.
Never bothered with Bulkhead (like you, I have the voyager) but Megatron is really, really good -BUT is just pipped to the post by Ultra Magnus due mainly to the fact he's made out of guns.
Megatron and Magnus are AWESOME!! Hmmm.....I would go for Magnus first as I never see him in stores and I see both Leader Megatrons regular version and Black Version. The regular G1 inspired version is the better choice IMHO.
Magnus. There's nothing like guns inside of guns mounted upon guns.
I think all three are pretty awesome,
but I'm probably going to go with Ultra Magnus. Since the character isn't offered at any other price point yet.
Megatron. Simple yet satisfying transformation and he looks great. Plus his laughing audio is fantastic.
Leader Megatron is the only Animated Megatron to get, IMO. The Voyager is rubbish, and the deluxe is rather floppy.
However, Ultra Magnus is seriously one of the best Animated figures, heck, one of the best TFs. Just be careful, he sometimes (used to?) have problems with his electronics where he would make the transformation noise if a small breeze blew by.
Though, speaking of electronics, you can't make Ultra magnus say "Where is the - Crush - HAHAHAHA!" And you can, on Megatron. If you are only able to find Shadow Blade Megatron, be careful. The majority (7/8, I'd say) had terrible button - to -facial feature connections and upon pressing the button on his chest, the face remained motionless.
Hopefully that helps. :O
Bulkhead or Magnus. Megatron is seriously overrated.
I want Magnus in Voyager class. I don't like the leader class they're too big for my liking.
Megs, pretty simple simple TFation, but a great figure. He's really poseable, has two swords, and makes a helicopter sound, what more do you need? (I don't have Magnus yet though, to be fair).
I don't own any leaders, but I'd say either UM or Megs, since you have voyager Bulkhead.
Ultra Magnus hands down. He is the only animated figure i have except for the dinobots. I think he's really cool. I like the look of him, and his transformation is not bad. I had the chance to get Megs, but i chose Magnus.
Megatron, hands down, followed rather closely by Magnus.
Megs is very articulated and has decent posing options when it comes to guns. His voice gimmicks are awesome.
Magnus is also articulated, but the hammer is a tad useless. Has a very intriguing transformation and both modes look cool.
Bulkhead is not that articulated, has a rather "tight" transformation in the sense that all the parts that move are next to each other and there's a very slight margin for error\space to move. The end result is not that balanced, either.
