    He needs a bit of paint, but that Prime looks awesome.

    I love the details on him but I'm just not loving the color of his arms and chest.It looks more orange than red.I'll probably wait for a cheaper price on this one.

    While I agree that the LDR is more accurate, this VGR is more in my preferred price range (esp since I'm now hunting him & DLX Ironhide at the same time) & looks great next to the new DLX molds...

    Definitely buying on sight...

    If you think about it though,this voyager is probably going to be in the $20-$22 range,and right now you can easily find a Leader Prime for $30.So why wouldn't you spend the little extra money and get the Leader Prime?

    I've figured out what it is about this mold that I don't like - nevermind the lack of paint, the chest seems too high and the legs are too far apart.

    Oh, and the head is too small.

    HOWEVER

    As far as scale goes, he looks decent with dlx. Ironhide & Ratchet. Too bad that once you add any of the deluxe Bumblebees into that equation, it won't matter.

    Perhaps I wouldn't be as harsh if this had been the first attempt at a movie accurate Prime figure, but it isn't.

    Yeah, the colors are a little off in bot mode,
    Nothing a little Testors can't fix.

    This piece would actually be in scale (-ish) with Voyager Mixmaster and the rest of my Devastator team (still in WIP...ugh....). PLUS, Bonus, he will be in scale with Voyager Screamer, Megs, and Fallen too! Excellent! I think I am going to pick him up.

    Now....if we're not going to get a leader Bonecrusher, then bring on a voyager! C'mon Hasbro, you know you want to!

    I think I'll just stick with my Leader Prime. Thanks for the review, though! Very informative and detailed. Also, thanks for helping me save a few bucks on that legends rampage. lol

    Great review as always Peaugh, thanks.

    If you are able to at some point, could you post a picture of this Prime with ROTF Voyager Megatron, Starscream, The Fallen, and Grindor (or any incarnation of that mold)? I'm curious to see how he looks compared to them.

    He looks awesome with deluxe Ironhide and Ratchet. I know it's not that big a deal but I love how BOTH wheels are situated on his thigh. I just hope Reprolabels gets to work on the extra decals for this thing.

    A new mold.. and looks like very fun to transform with. me like!

    I had the "honor" of transforming the previous movie Voyager Prime belonged to my 7-year old nephew and I found it to be a bitch. The arms doesn't stay in place. A flap pops out. And I wondered whether it's a KO or not.

    It looks really cool and makes me wish that they came out with this with the new movie. Awesome review, I will be passing on this one as I only really need one prime and this just seems like another attempt to get money.

    Sweet jesus that is SOOOO much better than the ROTF Leader class Prime. I love the fact that he transforms almost exactly the same as in the movie. The Matrix is a kick ass addition too. The duel blasters and removable swords means lots of fan made mod options also. This is bought on sight.

    I think I may have to pass on this one. I agree with what Shockwave2005 said, the proportions are a tad bit off.

    Great review, though! :thumb
