    For example :

    Fave Minicon/targetmaster/Battlemaster/Micromaster
    Fave Cassette or similar
    Fave Legion class / EZ series (or similar)
    Fave Scout/Basic, Cyberverse Commander or Legends class
    Fave Deluxe
    Fave Voyager, Mega or Batallion class
    Fave Ultra or Ultra Sizes Masterpiece toy
    Fave Leader, Super or Leader class size Masterpiece toy
    Fave Titan class.
    Others...

    I just wondered, as I was thinking that perhaps I had a slightly unusual current favourite deluxe in the guise of Titans Returns type Orion Pax. & then I got to thinking about the other size classes.

    But I also got to wondering to how those choices changed and how some of those previous faves were a found choice for a long time - so at one time my previous faves would have been Supercon Optimus Prime and Classics/RTS Jazz. & my fav Voyager is likely Siege Starscream (i'm not even sure why to be honest - I just enjoy playing with him a lot for some reason).

    Previous choices of scout would be pretty varied from Optimus Minor to even some of the powercore combiners at the moment I seem to be gravitating to the Decepticon Clones & the duocons.

    I just thought i'd ask anyway - but if you don't want to answer all that - just shout out your fave deluxe and why.

    for me, not really... I have too many that I enjoy.

    I could stated what are the figures that throughout the years I keep going back to, that I would define as the favourites, but per class, not really, and there's probably a thread for that already, I'm pretty sure I remember one.

    Maybe per series? but that could end up a brutally long list.

    Fave Legion: RID Fixit
    Fave Battlemaster: Lionizer
    Fave Legends: CW Scrounge
    Fave Deluxe: Gen Straxus
    Fave Voyager: RTS Lugnut
    Fave Leader: Potp Nemesis Prime (Shockwave was a close second, but he's too smol)
    Fave Combiner/commander : CW Bruticus (Jury's out until I get Sky Lynx)
    Fave Titan: Omega Supreme (Unless scorp surprises me)

    And of all of those, my overall favorite is def Lugnut. No figure I've ever owned has that much raw personality.

    I don't know if I can pinpoint exactly a favorite but there's a few that no matter how much time passes I'm always drawn back to.

    I think Deluxe class, being the standard class after all has the most candidates. I really really like:
    TR Hot Rod
    CW Prowl
    T30 Orion Pax
    Siege Sideswipe (both G1 and G2)
    And currently ER Cliffjumper

    Voyagers, I keep coming back to CW Optimus Prime. I know a lot of people dont't like him but I love the body builder proportions and the beefy truck mode a lot. I enjoy the Siege Seeker a lot but them being 8 dilutes them a bit. Ironically Thundercracker and Skywarp are the ones I don't give as much love to.

    Leaders, I have a soft spot for CW Megatron. Still one of the best alt modes IMO. Really like both my Ultra Magnuses for different reasons, but I think CW barely wins out. I also really like the Throne of the Primes set.

    Legends class I have a few a like a lot like Beachcomber, Slash, Cosmos, Swerve, TR Bumblebee, etc.

    Favorite "Masters" include the diecast Rodimus Prime, POTP Metalhawl, Caliburst and Trenchfoot.

    I just noticed I didn't include any movieverse figures so to name them as honorable mentions: AoE Evasion Prime, SS Grimlock, SS Blackout's alt mode, SS DOTM Optimus, DOTM Shockwave (still haven't got the SS).

    I think most of these have some nostalgia towards them, so in some cases I know they're better figures for the characters out there, and I even have them, but the emotional attachment is strong.

    Prime Beast Hunters Blight and to a slightly lesser degree the whole of Abominus. I don't have to explain myself, I'm not on trial here.
