    Deluxes. They tend to be the ones that fill out the collection the fastest, and have some of the best figures.

    It's a tie between Deluxe and Voyager. Both size classes have had their share of great figures. Figures in both size classes are usually worth their price. Though in the end I do own more Deluxes than I do Voyagers.

    Legends, though I'm sorely tempted to begin collecting Deluxe...

    I prefer deluxes, in all. I think Hasbro got it "just right" on the deluxe level in regards to size, complexity, features and value. Scouts are a close second as the limitations in size and cost sometimes lead to some very nifty figures (like most of the cybertron line's figures) and sometimes, some not so nifty figures (Energon Insecticon comes to mind)

    My thoughts exactly, there are great figures in every class size. Because of the retail pricepoint, deluxes probably get a lot of love just because there are so many different ones to choose from, but we got a nice movie Leader Prime, and nice (IMO) Animated Leaders. When you start getting into exclusives/imports/etc, price point kind of goes out the window, so classes don't matter much to me, a good mold is a good mold.

    I think Deluxe. Pretty nice figures; the only issue for some can be height in robot mode (Movie Bonecrusher, Animated Sentinel Prime) but thankfully it's not very common. The deluxe class has worked extremely well with the Classics line.

    Deluxe--definitely my favorite size class. Voyagers are right behind them.

    Well, the better part of my collection is in the Deluxe size class. But that's only because a majority of the figures are made at that price point.

    Really, for me it's about relative scale. If the character works at that size compared to the others, then it works for me. This is the reason I hate- Hate- HATE the Universe Ultra class figures- because they simply do not work within scale with the other characters and their relative size. Powerglide should be a Deluxe, Onslaught and Silverbolt Voyagers. Passed on Galvatron for the same reason, he's not as tall as either the proper Classics Megatron figure, Optimus, nor the upcoming Rodimus Prime.

    I think one of the only figures I didn't all out skip on that I think should be in a different size class was Classics Grimlock. He could stand to have been bumped up to a Voyager, maybe an Ultra. But I like the figure nonetheless. Also Wheelie. I'd like a Scout class Wheelie.
