    Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Series 01 - Beast Optimus Prime - Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager

    I was just looking at the Predaking pre-orders when I realized, BBTS had put up pictures of the new Voyager "Beast" Optimus Prime figure.

    Edit: They've also put up pictures of the Cyberverse Predaking and Optimus Prime figures:

    Well I like his sword quite a bit. The rest is...well, a new mold Optimus in the style of that Bumblebee and Wheeljack.

    Once again Hasbro's arbitrary caginess at that con has left me actually less excited for something. I suppose this is barely a spoiler, maybe Predaking's robot mode is too in story terms, but right now it just feels like "why"?

    Looks pretty cool. Most likely mistransformed on the backside. It looks like all those grey panels from truck mode are either wings or flip out armor/shield. (hoping for wings!)
    Also looks like the head is stiff, maybe for a light up chest and eyes gimmick? (hopefully the head still turns!)

    The wheel-cape I can forgive as an obvious mistransformation, but man is that one cheap and nasty-looking figure.

    Oh, Prime toy line. How far you've fallen since the First Edition figures.

    I like the voyager vehicle mode. Have to see a properly transformed robot mode to judge that one.

    the mold itself don't look horrible, but the lack of paint anywhere on the voyager is just killer. there's a lot of detail in that mold too, absolutely goes to waste without any kind of paint app.

    another pass in the end.

    It's funny, the voyager reminds me of TF:Animated Optimus, but the Cyberverse one doesn't. Cyberverse kinda reminds me of Pat Lee's bad drawing style. Also, the Cyberverse Optimus doesn't have his feet flipped out.

    Personally I think the new Voyager looks great. His new guns and the translucent green are the only details I'm not a huge fan of. It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, those gray panels will do in bot-mode. I was planning on sticking to the Commander figure...but I might get the Voyager instead. Even though I don't exactly need another large Optimus Prime figure in my collection...

    The Commanders both look great. Optimus having his sword is a nice touch. Predaking's dragon-mode looks better...even if it is misstransformed. His bot-mode is...just a little better than I was expecting. If I don't get the Voyager, I'll definitely be getting this version.

    That actually looks pretty cool. It'll be interesting to see how he gets this new form in the show. Can't wait to see in-hand pics; I'm looking forward to this toy.

    I'm not sure if I like it or not, but I'm switching my pre-order to the voyager 2-pack instead of just Predaking. I like how they give him some sort of gun for his right arm.

    Actually, the more I look at the pics the more I am liking it. It could use a little more paint in some areas but I think this is going to be good.

    Edit: I am also really liking that they are going away from the normal powerizer weapons. Translucent green is a little wierd, but that's a good looking sword along with his gun arm.

    That Optimus alt mode looks like a cross between Cybertron Prime and Energon Inferno's alt mode to me for some strange reason.

    How do you go from the TFP FE's to......this? I'm so lost. Isn't beast hunters a continuity of Prime? It just really seems like the whole line just went side ways here. I gotta watch the toon before buying any of these.
