    So, I've been reviewing Vangelus' and Peaugh's video reviews of these figures, but I can't see which would be better. I like the Voyagers complex transformation, and there are 2 left in the store nearby me, so it'd be a small treat for me, but the axe is really big... and the Battle Damage... it has battle damage!! I just want a clean toy! Other than that, I think that version is really nice, I'll just have to try and get it online.

    Would you guys help me? And outside of painting, if I got the Deluxe, how would I remove the battle damage?

    hmm, i have both, and i think that the battle damage one is a tad more complex than the voyager, though the voyager has the awesome mouthplate...

    my opinion is either get both and kick yourself later. unless you have Cybertronian form Deluxe Optimus, in which case i say voyager all the way!

    also, if its just for the Ax, some dood is making really cool custom axe's, prbly on ebay or sumthin. got that info off a board here that got the info from TFsource, i believe. that or TFormers (i think its TFormers)

    I like the Voyager better, but I gave him the battle damaged one's axe, which is about the only thing the smaller version has on the Voyager, an accurate axe.

    I like Voyager OPtimus because I think he looks better and is more show accurate.
    Although Two-pack Optimus has better articulation and a cooler axe.
    He's my least favorite of the three though. As the two pack guys are prone to bad QC.

    I bought the voyager, and am buying that custom axe, who ever is making it, and grabbing it when it comes out :)

    All 3 Primes are good, but I like the Deluxes much better than the Voyager.

    I like all three, but if you like the show-accurate mouth the voyager is best.

    Of the two, I like the voyager version the best. But like others, I gave him the BD version's axe and left the voyager's strapped to his back.

    You guys answered my own question.

    I want ONE Optimus for my Animated collection... I've decided I just want the main show cast (though Blurr is looking mighty tempting). I wanted to match up my Optimus and Megatron (I have voyager, Cybertronian Megatron), but it seems like between Leader Megatron (who I've seen in stores and just don't feel eny desire to pick up) and Voyager, it's mostly a question of "What does my wallet prefer?"

    I'd like a Cybertronian Optimus to match my Cybertronian Megatron, but it sounds like Voyager, Earth Prime is the way to go. Besides, that'll match my Autobot crew the best anyway. And I like his axe, despite not being show-accurate.
