    So i grabbed the two pack with Megatron and O.Prime and the kids.
    (does that make it count as a five pack?)

    I want this O.P. to be a 10/10 toy. It's so freaking cool....but his....ummmmm.....people were right....his arms are. And i don't think they need to be.huge.


    (MAIN QUESTION)
    Are we going to get an updated version of this toy?

    I say it's very likely. And movie bumblebee jokes aside, I'm sure we'll see a lot of even better Prime BBs ahead.

    Outside of the Voyager Prime I am sure we will see more Prime figures in the long run. This show has long term plans, so at least another 2 seasons (?)

    Thats abotu 3 or 4 years worth of toys. I can't see Hasbro only releasing thier top seller only twice and rigth at the beginning of the line.

    If they can pull off a version of him that surpasses even the already aclaimed Voyager class version than I'll be impressed!:)

    Just thought of it. We haven't seen Leader Class yet. IF they haven't dropped that class it is a safe bet we will see a Leader Prime.

    It's probable that if the designers don't want a larger mold for Optimus, somebody in marketing does.

    Now....If they could find a way to make those chest windows NOT fake alt mode parts...

    Also, Leader Class Arcee or GTFO.

    I seriously doubt a Leader Class Arcee would happen any time soon!:lol  More like either a Commander Class version,Human allience version,or even a new Deluxe mold instead! If there will be a Leader class version of Optimus I wonder how they will pull off the transformation scheme?

    Well if they do make a Leader Class version of her I'll be surprised and pick her up too!:D  But seeing how despite being the most popular character on the show she's not really well known in the mainstream media like Bumblebee is. But I'm sure once she gets better known in the media Hasbro may consider it and will actually make one and sell it! If Bumblebee was able to get a Leader Class toy in DOTM than maybe Arcee can too for the TFP line. Of course I still want to see a Commander Class and/or Human Allience version of her as well!:thumb

    I wonder if we'll soon see an updated Deluxe Prime at least - similar to the way we're getting a couple of Cliffjumpers, one being more show accurate. I think it's also a given that there are bound to be different versions of Prime toys during the life of the cartoon; he is, after all, one of the most known and bankable TFs.

    That Voyager Prime is great, came thru from Kapow the other day :) 

    As for the TF Prime Leader class thing - in some ways it'd be cool if that class was only used as a "special", if there's a really big (as in literally big) character in the show. Of course, you know I'm thinking along the lines of TFA Omega Supreme here... ;)

    Since the Voyager one is first edition, probably.

    It may be possible we may get a new Deluxe version of Optimus as well as new Deluxe molds of Starscream and Arcee too:thumb

    There will probably be updates of the mold and an absurd number of repaints of Optimus and Bumblebee, provided the line sticks around a while.

    My thinking is, we'll get a couple of re-decoes/new accessories to maximize the mold use, then if they decide to do a form upgrade ala beast wars, that's when we'll get a real new figure.

    The Voyager is amazing. I don't think we need another version after that. Give me a Leader class Bulkhead over Prime anyday.

    Leader Prime so the chest windows can be made from the actual truck windows. Imagine RotF Leader Prime complexity, but it's Prime Prime instead.
