    so i'm trying to settle on what to buy. i want a movie optimus, and the only two molds i'd buy are the HFTD battle blades, or the DOTM deluxe. which one is better scale-wise (using deluxe ironhide and ratchet and voyager megatron as a template)? can battle blades pull the deluxe prime's trailer? and is the trailer the chronicle version or the one released with the non teched-out DOTM voyager prime in japan? help's appreciated :)

    I would think the voyager version is the better one scale wise with those figured. The Deluxe iteration is kind of lame, half the truck just folds up on his back. I only bother picking up the mold because the Gold trim version has tacky gold trim on it.

    I don't know about the trailers, but Battle Blades Prime is great... Basically a scaled back version of the Leader Prime from ROTF only less aggravating to transform. deluxe Prime is pretty lame IMO. Not the worst figure ever but as was said above the whole front end of the truck just hangs off his back, one of my biggest pet peeves with a figure. Got him as cannon fodder for my four year old so he would leave our good transformers alone.

    Ok, first, as to which Prime - the Voyager Battle Blades is better both in scale, and design. It is an amazing representation of Prime. The deluxe is cool, but the Voyager is far better.

    As for the trailer, it is the same one as the Chronicle trailer. Smaller, and less mechtech ports than the Voyager version. I haven't put it with my Voyager Prime yet, so I can't answer whether it will pull it or not.

    Having both figures, for your size class needs, go with the HFD version because he's taller than the deluxe and IMO a better representation (less the abs of course).

    Battle Blades Voyager is so much superior of the two that it isn't even funny. And I do like the DotM Deluxe. But it's not even close.

    Battle Blades by far. While the deluxe Prime isn't bad, the HFTD version is so great.

    Yeah, I'd probably go with Battle Blades as well. The deluxe is fantastic, and scales great with DotM Megatron, but the voyager is just a good representation. I kind of wish I had picked up the original version. I've got that one that came with Commetor.

    Also, I didn't even think to see how the new trailer scales against the voyager one...

    In terms of scale, the Voyager goes better with the Deluxe Ironhide and Ratchet while the Deluxe would go better with Voyager Megatron (and, incidentally, Deluxe Bonecrusher). Voyager Megs isn't really in-scale with Deluxe IH/Ratch.

    HFTD BB Optimus Prime. However, I'm getting the trilogy Op for the Trailer.

    Get Battle Blades Optimus Prime

    It's the best interpretation of Optimus Prime in a scale that fits in with a good collection of Voyager/deluxe optimi

    Voyager Battle Blades is not only a great figure...he is the BEST Movie Opimtus. Only one that gives you two blades, two guns...love him.

    Battle Blades Prime all the way. As others have said its a scaled down version of ROTF Leader Prime and is far superior to the DOTM deluxe prime.
