TFkenkon Blog: Defender Optimus Prime package variants
Interesting. A brand new box shape just for him. Maybe there will be more to come in that box size.
I kinda like that bot mode packaging. Makes him look like a leader class toy (not that he's anywhere close to being ROTF Leader Prime, but still). I still won't buy him, though.
Weren't there a bunch of Animated Voyagers that had test packaging with them in robot mode? And Voyager Long Haul in truck mode?
Maybe they just do test packaging in different modes to see what looks best. Either way, one boxed Defender Optimus Prime is more than enough for my collection.
i just placed an order on HTS with him, mindwipe and the two pack of soundwave and bumblebee for $59.99 plus shipping...might keep him or turn him into a birthday gift for my nephew....
The 'bot mode packaging is pretty neat. Looks like a mini Leader box.
nice i want it either way i can find it'
Yeah, this looks like another variation of a Voyager standing up box.
If it makes it look prettier, it's understandable. It's a shame that I really have no time for this mould.
Toy's still not going to sell.
To the untrained eye, it differentiates the toy from the Wave 1 Primes that are rotting on shelves in some locations.
Looks like a mini-leader class packaged like that. Haha.
I asked in another thread, buit didn't see if anyone answered: did anything come of those other Voyagers we saw in robot mode packages?
What an ugly paint job. Though packaging him in bot mode makes it less apparent.
so sick of that mold.
However you package it, it's still a horrible, horrible mold, with a crappy, crappy paint job.
I live in South Korea, and ALL the voyagers are packaged that way here. In fact all the TFs are packed in robot mode.
while no one will refute that is a terrible paint job (seriously Hasbro, this is possibly the most 1/2-@$$ed redeco in the history of 1/2-@$$ed redeco, and that includes the Freeway Brawl version of this very mold.) I've always thought that mold was pretty great: Super poseable, looks good in both modes ~ tons better than the movie 1 leader mold, cool driver gimmick, sweet guns.
ill finally get this mold with armour jetfire
it would be good if they stuck to this alt packaging and put all leader classes in vehicle mode (god knows how they'll do it with jetfire)
also instead of optimus and jetfire box separate but together (the hasbro release) why don't they combine them into p.u.o.p and make the box bigger
Way better than normal
