Movie figures: Best of class


Terrorcon Blot

Recommended Posts

It's time for an opinion time! Here's a toughie for ya...who's the best movie toy...in each size class? We're nearing the end of the line, so there's practically nobody left. This of course won't be final...people always come back and change their answers.

 

No real rules, except obviously only answer where applicable. As well, I'd prefer if you only said toys you owned...after all, it's hardly the best toy if you don't even own it, am I right?

 

Also, let's keep the movie CHARACTERS out of this. Yes, Blackout was badass as he blew up the base. But his toy can't do that. This is toys only.

 

Your size classes / options, gentlemen!

 

Legends

Real Gear

Fast Action Battler

These are the toys I think were best executed for each size class:

 

Legends: Barricade - car mode shows very little kibble, reasonable robot mode (I think Ironhide may end up being better than him)

Real Gear: none

Fast Action Battlers: Starscream (caveat: he's the only one I have); from looking at the ones in the store, Barricade and Bumblebee are probably better executed

Deluxe Class: Bumblebee (Camaro Concept) - great car mode, minimal kibble robot mode

Voyager Class: Rachet - great truck mode, minimal kibble robot mode (ironically, even though I think Rachet is the best mold in this class, he's my least favorite)

Leader Class: Optimus Prime - great truck mold, transformation scheme is very close to pre-production animatics (Brawl's a pretty close second)

Legends. I'd say, of the current ones, Barricade. It's not much less accurate than his Deluxe toy, which I was horribly disappointed with. However, all the unreleased ones (Ironhide, Brawl, and Bonecrusher) look fantastic. I want them all.

Real Gear: Spy Shot 6. Meantime as a close second. They both have fantastically posable robot forms, and I even think Meantime's is a bit better looking than Spy Shot's, but Spy Shot has a fantastic alt-mode, while Meantime's is fairly lackluster.

Scout: Armorhide. It's a black repaint of a very cool figure. What's not to love?

FAB: I only own Frenzy, as it's the only Transformable Frenzy, but I'd say Bumblebee from what I've seen. Ironhide, Prime, and Brawl look okay too.

Deluxe: 08 Bumblebee or Dropkick. Bumblebee's slightly more posable and has a cooler weapon, but Dropkick's design is just fantastic, marred only by a kink in the shoulder attachment.

Voyager: Optimus Prime. Probably my favorite movie figure. Great proportions, and an alt-mode with cool gimmicks. And while its guns are not CGI-accurate, they're very cool and fun.

Leader: Brawl. Prime was too bulky for my tastes, especially compared to his fantastic Voyager counterpart, and Megs was setback by poor paint choices and a horrible alt-mode.
