    Which Prime figures do you prefer between the ones below:

    -Prime DLX Prime
    -Prime Voyager Prime
    -DOTM DLX Prime
    -DOTM Voyager Prime

    I think both Prime figures win for me. Better and cleaner alt modes, fierce-looking robot modes... I think the only place where DOTM wins is for the weapons included with the Voyager figures and the trailer provided with the Takara version.

    Dude, in my book, TF Prime Voyager Prime is the 2nd greatest OP ever released.
    The others arent even close to the same league. Here he is next to Starscream,
    everyone's other favorite TF Prime toy.

    I've only played with the Prime voyager and he was amazing. May have sold me on the entire line.

    The other three figures all look like poo. So I passed on them.

    Prime Voyager Prime. Might just be right up there with Animated Prime in terms of how accurate and nice looking for the price point. At least as far as pictures lead me to believe, until I can get my grubby hands on that toy.:p

    While I don't have it -yet- , I've seen enough of the figure to consider Prime Voyager OP the clear winner.

    I'd say either the DOTM battle blades prime or prime prime, they're both pretty close in my book

    Definitely, Prime Voyager Optimus. Sad to say but Hasbro never made a better movie Optimus Prime after they created the Revenge of the Fallen leader class Optimus Prime.

    I like the Prime Voyager the best of the four. The DotM Deluxe could look nice with a premium deco (the Lunar Fire version actually caught my eye).

    The other two are okay...the Fireburst Voyager is my favorite version and has a nice Mechtech weapon.

    I don't have experience with any of the four but I'm going to go with TFP Voy Prime since it's the only figure I'm planning on purchasing from that list.

    TF Prime Voyager Optimus Prime FTW!!!!!!

    I didn't even bother with any of the DOTM OP's, I think all I would want is their weapons, especially Voyager normal and fireburst's

    ROTF Leader Optimus Prime, but since he isn't on the list, I'll go with TFP Voyager Optimus Prime

    Prime Voyager Optimus Prime is nothing short of amazing. A truly heroic stature, a really fun transformation, and unbelievable show accuracy in his design.

    I'd say he is possibly the best Optimus Prime made in nearly any size class in the last five years. RotF had the Leader and the HftD Voyager, both of whom were impressive, but this one combines accuracy, poseability and a (relatively) straightforward transformation that gives you two accurate modes. The only downside is the lack of real storage for his weapons, and the rubber sword.

    I despise the movie aesthetics so obviously I'm going to choose TFP Voyager Optimus.

    Write in shout out to WFC Optimus as well. Such a fantastic figure.

    Prime Voyager, easily.

    DotM Voyager is easily my least favorite Movie Voyager, Movie Deluxe is very... ehhhhhhhh... and Prime Deluxe is just straight up inferior to Voyager (I just cannot get past how awful his fake window looks).
