    Hi guys,
    I love complex and satisfying transformations. Need your opinions so that I can add more new movie toys to my collection. Read that Dropkick is the best of deluxe. Currently I only have a few movie toys and will list them IMO in terms of complexity.

    1. Leader OP
    2.Voyager Ironhide: Just ok. Love the automorph feature.
    3. Voyager Starscream: After transforming twice/thrice, find out that the transformation is not really complex.
    4. Voyger Ratchet: Not hard

    Blackout and 08 Bumblebee have good transformations. Most Alternators have great transformations. MP-03 Starscream and MP-05 Megatron have the ultimate transformations.

    Read the title. Movie toys. Of the ones I got (Only have Ironhide, Jazz and Blackout), I'd say Voyager Ironhide.

    Ironhide is neat, but man it's also kinda tough, reminds me of Alternators a little :D

    Ironhide is the most complex toy I've handled since Binaltech Grimlock but you've rated him below Leader Op which I found to be nicely designed but not at all difficult to transform.

    The only other really complicated movie toys are the aforementioned 08 Bee & Dropkick plus Payload and maybe Longarm.

    Voyager Prime might be worth your time, not difficult, but very nicely designed.

    complex doesn't equal difficult. leader prime is easy to tf, but he has many many parts to deal with, making him complex. he's fun as hell.

    Obviously, Leader Optimus meets the criteria.

    The other figures......I think Bonerusher is pretty damn neat. There's no way you would be able to tell what the hell its alt mode was based on its robot form if you didn't already know beforehand. Plus, it's a really solid figure. I love it.

    Ironhide, on the other hand, is not one of my favorites. I agree that it feels like an Alternator, which in general gives me fits. It took me too long to get it back into truck mode the first time and I've avoided ever since.

    I'll probably try it again this weekend.

    Complex? Leader Megatron, I tried to transform a friend's without instruction, and I couldn't make heads or tail of it.

    Fun definitely goes to Leader Prime, and new favorite DLX 08 BB and DLX Arcee

    That's basicaly it. I would add Leader Megs, but once you figure it out he's pretty easy.

    Thanks guys! I am a bit on budget so I cannot get all the toys. After reading all your posts, looks like I know my latest plan: To get 08 BB, obviously the latest hottest toy and Dropkick!

    Barricade is a lot of fun, but leaves a little to be desired.

    Prime is extremely complex, but not difficult. Lot's of fun to transform because you know what you're doing at all times and end up with something iconic in both modes.

    Blackout is frustrating, and not all that complex, which makes the frustration all that much more unbearable.

    Ironhide has the best Automorph feature I've seen in his legs. He's fun to fiddle with, but ranks belowe Prime on the fun scale because he's minorly irritating getting back into vehicle mode.

    And that's all the movie toys I have thus far.

    Been liking Bonecrusher and Barricade lately.

    Their Alt forms are deluxelike & cool and they just unfold into AAGH GRRRAGH. Big ass monster arms going all over the place etc ready to take on a larger class.

    Leader Prime has the most complex (and best!) transformation by far.

    Definitely, Leader Prime. Since Alts, I hadn't enjoyed so much transforming a figure.

    I love Wreckage automorph feature. It doesn't have a complex transformation, but his automorph is rather cool.
