    SPX Toys has listed [EBAYLINK="280102493203"]an auction for the Transformers Movie Voyager sized Optimus Prime[/EBAYLINK].

    Think you've seen it already? Look again, this one has different paint apps to the last one - there are fewer paint apps on the chest area, particularly around the "windows", which aren't painted all the way across like on the previous one we saw. The blue paint on his midriff below the silver tech details is also missing, as are the coppery details around this area.

    That said, there are some extra details too - there are flames on his shins, which were absent on the previously shown ones, and although it is hard to see, it looks like there may also be some more silver around the "face" area of the robot mode eyes.

    I like the flames on the shins, but I'd rather have the paint on the chest, personally. It's still a fantastic toy that will be tough to pass up.

    The face looks great on this one. No more "blank stare" syndrome. The flames look a lot nicer than I thought it would.

    Can't wait for this guy. I'll end up fixing the paint apps myself regardless.

    Are those even the same? The truck mode and the bot mode actually look like two different toys. On the bot mode, there are flames on his shins, but there aren't any flames on the top of the sleeper (which appear to be the panels that make up Prime's shins). The silver on the face is an improvement, but the rest is just meh. I liked the other shots better.

    hopefully the final version will have the chest details of the first one and the leg detail of this one (he has the gold joints on the knees as well at the flames, though the blue at the tops of the legs is missing!). If the 'doors' on the chest the hinged parts on the upper arms were blue and/or had flames then it would be very very close to the CGI model - even the FAB has this detail, and compares to the other voygers both versions we've seen of this do seem rather under-detailed.

    actually it's quite straighforwad - the arms are just tucked underneath, the front slides up and back to form the backpack. the legs are the most complex part, unfloding form the sleeper section. there's a gallery on seibertron.com which has pics of the transformation :)

    Transformation is definitely not of the 1-2-3 type (unlike Armada/Energon Prime).
