    I'm looking for recommendations for a Prime to display in alt mode with the DOTM trailer.

    I have a Voyager on backorder with HLJ, but I'm thinking of canceling it since the truck itself is missing so many paint apps that where on the TFTM and ROTF Primes.

    Which of the DOTM Primes would you guys recommend for display in alt mode that is movie accurate?

    Sadly, you don't have a lot of possibilities.

    Takara Voyager with trailer: passable truck, ugly figure, nice trailer
    Ultimate Prime: ugly everything

    Well, there's also Cyberverse Prime with trailer but if you think the voyager is missing paint apps, I'm pretty sure you won't go for this one.

    Unless they make a trailer for the upcoming Takara Leader figures, your best bet is probably Voyager with trailer. That's what I went for even if I really hate DOTM Voyager Prime as a figure.

    Sadly there's been no word if Hasbro is gonna release a voyager prime with trailer yet or not,so if you want one with the trailer you'll just have to go with the takara version.But if you want an honest opinion I say get the DOTM Walmart Voyager Prime,even tho some people say he sucks,I actually think he's the best prime ever,with the darker gray plastic,and instead of blades on his arms now he has his trademark face ripping hooks.Besides that he also comes with a free Commetor,and if that ain't enough he is actually a dollar cheaper than the regular voyagers.So I say get him,he is well worth the $17.77 price tag IMO.Later.

    Honestly I don't really think either one is worth forking the cash out for. I would either wait for the Hasbro release of the voyager with trailer and save a few bucks or just wait for something better from either company.

    I've got TakTom Voyager w/trailer, and I have to say the trailer looks and feels very flimsy. I still like it for the play value (my kids love the fact that Prime can carry deluxe class cars), but thinking of getting the Cyberverse one as well. That one looks rather neat.

    Wal Mart Deluxe Optimus. Looks great in alt mode and is the only Prime that looks good with Voyager Megatron in alt mode. Sadly there's no trailer yet, but I suspect there will be eventually (it's got a connection point for one).
