    It's lack luster for me... it's an okay mold but the two things i was looking forward to was the laserbeak combination which was too loose for me and the axe which wouldn't work or lock in properly. Should i return it for powerizers voyager optimus or keep it and ignore the axe? It's an okay figure on it's own it just has a few flaws.

    So which is better?

    Powerizers voyager or dotm voyager optimus?

    Or should i get something like human alliance leadfoot since that's half off at target now?

    I have neither, but I think PRID Voyager/Powerizer Prime looks the best.

    Powerizer
    - Real chest
    - Mostly real kibble
    - Proportionate

    All that the DOTM Prime was good for is his gun.

    Return it to get the RID Voyager Prime. The only thing Fireburst Prime was good for was the laserbeak combination and his axe, seeing as he's not really accurate to any source material. RID Voyager Prime is great though. I got him two and a half weeks ago and I find myself picking him up off the shelf just to transform ALL THE TIME. Very fun toy to just fiddle around with.

    Fireburst Prime dissapointed me too over time. Mine wouldn't stay together, it's arms loosened quickly, and the axe is great, but the toy can't really use it. It's deco is still very awesome, so it's good for display at least.

    But the RID Prime isn't much better. He doesn't look great, he's kibble-tastic, and the chest, despite being the actual truck windscreen, is awful looking.

    My Fireburst Optimus is paired with my Murderbee, as they almost seem to be *MADE* to be paired that way! :D

    Damn it... i'm stuck with him. I lost the recipet. I can't return him because he's opened. No matter, i'll save to get poweriser optimus. Who knows, maybe i'll find megatron or deluxe arcee or something good to get the taste of disappointment to go away.

    The fireburst prime I got was awful. I had to pry his shoulders apart for transformation and his weapon is pure junk that won't stay locked in place. The Prime RiD version is waaaaaaaaaay better for the money.

    I hate the DOTM voyager mold. It's a fun transformation, but when stupid design decisions prevent a figure from standing straight and looking straight ahead at the same time, it pisses me off to no end.

    Laserbeak combination?:sly2:  Never heard of that until now...

    Regardless, I think DOTM Voyager Optimus looks terrible, and Fireburst's axe is too easy to cause the blade pieces to accidentally be forced out of alignment. The Prime mainline Voyager Optimus is a better deal...and I don't think that one is all that good either.

    how do real chest windows cause kibble in vehicle mode when, you know, they are the windows of the vehicle mode?

    Those bits inbetween the windshield and the side view mirrors are obviously part of the truck design.

    DTM Prime is wonky mold... but I had no idea that he was supposed to combine with Lazerbeak.

    How?

    PRID Prime impresses me not.

    I like Fireburst Optimus. It makes a nice addition to my Bayverse Autobots in alternate color schemes lineup. But Powerizer Optimus is better in every way except when it comes to their firearms.

    I was sold on Fireburst because of the Laserbeak combo. I ended up being disappointed it doesn't really connect and just sort of hangs on his back. Overall I still love the mold as far as movie prime voyager you can't beat BB one, and with reduced budgets we probably won't get anything better in that size.
