    What do you think of Animated Voyager Prime's Axe/Water pistol? Am I the only one who thinks the feature is a piece of garbage, waste of time? His "axe" is especially a piece of garbage if you ask me. It's way too huge, the sides keep falling off and it doesn't even look like an axe to tell the truth.

    I also think Voyager Prime's vehicle mode looks better (and more G1-esque.) without the axe/water pistol attached to the back.

    Today, I gave my Voyager Prime the axe that came with the battle-damaged 2-pack Prime and it looks unbelieveably awesome. The axe from the 2-pack prime looks like it was made for Voyager Prime. The fit was a little tight in Voyager Prime's hand but, not too bad because it still fit.

    As a side note, I highly recommend the reprolabels upgrade kit for Animated Voyager Prime. It makes an already great figure look that much better.

    So what do you think about the axe situation?

    thats quite a well-known fact, that the voyager prime's axe sucks ass and that the 2-pack battle begins prime's axe is the perfect one....not heard too much against the water cannon thing though but i guess thats kinda lame too..i think the axe and cannon on the back make the vehicle mode more cartoon-accurate though...but as weapons, they totally suck...thanks for posting anyway

    If you paint the inside (the gray parts) then it looks more accurate, but still sucks for show accuracy

    Yeah, I hate the axe, and I agree it looks nothing like an axe, more like a giant fan, but I'm sure as hell not buying the two pack just for an axe.

    The water gun is fine though. I wish the Transformers still came with guns, even if they don't use them in the show. Considering painting it black or dark grey, and imagine it's an update of G1 Prime's rifle

    Personally I don't like the axe idea at all. He looks good without any accessory for right now. I'm hoping someone comes out with a G1esque Optimus Rifle that fits him.

    It would have been cool if he had a grapple hook though. Especially since its even on the box.

    I don't mind the look of the axe...I know it's not accurate but I don't give a rat's ass about the cartoon. The pistol is completely lame however. My main dislike about Voyager Prime is that waste of time spinning waist 'gimmick'.

    I too had to make sure he got the 2-Pack's axe. Looks so much better that way. That being said, I do like the look it has in vehicle mode. It's kinda cool, actually. Like a streamlined, super fast fire truck. I've never tried the water cannon's functionality before, but to be honest, I think it's neat that it will actually expel water. I tend to look at it as a flying firefighting drone for Optimus, kinda like a brainless Roller of sorts.

    If you do what Remy did, you can pop off the one side, snap the gun in place, and closely replicate what the axe looks like on TV. Not great, but it works.

    Still...all in all, Prime's a great figure as is, even with the goofy axe.

    You guys should try painting the pistol black with a sharpie. It's way cooler.

    It looks OK on the cab, but looks like crap as a weapon.
