The size-class is not Powerizer

Does this matter? Not in the least. Do I care? Yeah, I'm crazy like that.
Thank you for you time and attention.

It also listed them at 26.99, while Meijer had them at 19.99, so take that as you will.

You'll be lucky if you can find one in the huge piles of MaxCons and Megas clogging the shelves.
But in all seriousness, isn't "Voyager" just as stupid a name?

At least Voyager is an actual word. I mean, sure it doesn't seem to mean anything in relation to TF toys, but I'll take it over an awkward non-word like "Powerizer" any day.

You say that, but Basics/Scouts don't exist as part of the mainline any more - the closest equivalent (Cyberverse Cmdr) is now the large class of the small-scale line.
Which, of course, makes "Deluxe" a nonsense title, since how can the most basic type of toy in the line be "Deluxe"?
And "Mega" and "Ultra" aren't nouns in common usage, so talking about "a mega" or "an ultra" just sounds weird

You forgot Super (aka "Leader") between Ultra and Supreme.
But yeah, this worked fine from 1995 to 2007. Now we just have a bunch of redundant novelty crap choking out Deluxes at the $9-13 range, no Scouts (lol Commanders) and the larger size classes are all dying off. Voyager will be the next casualty when stores figure out they're supposed to be charging thirty dollars for them (woo-hoo, eight bucks for a ten cent LED and two watch batteries!).

It made sense back when it started in Cybertron, with the whole exploration theme for finding the Cyber Keys. Now it's just an artifact title.
