    If it's the first Voyager one, then use there are several paint, sculpt, and accessory differences.

    No probs. :)  Yeah they're exactly the same, except for the solar panels on the Hasbro version (I think they're molded details?).

    There's actually quite a few differences. All the solar panels are gone, he's got a windshield without the extra tech detailing. Smaller gas tanks, rather than those big rocket fuel pods, and his feet are remolded to remove the rocket heels.

    I'm not sure if Takara's gotten around to releasing the space version of Optimus yet. If they have, though, it's probably safe to assume that it's exactly the same as the Hasbro version.

    I believe that's just the name of the normal Voyager Optimus in Japan.
