    I see a pretty sweet deco for Voyager Prime there, lots of silver and paint-apps the Hasbro one doesn't have.

    I assume the one for retail will be pretty much the same sans the darker tint and the purple details? We will find out soon I guess, the next wave of Takara movie toys should debut during the next few weeks.

    Actually from promo shots the standard Takara release looks to be identical to the Hasbro.

    Price depending though I may go for this one. Just the darker grey does a lot to make this looks more premium.

    That's not the standard Takara release, it's a TRU Japan exclusive. Most likely a straight up release of the Hasbro version in Japan to cash in on movie fans as soon as possible.

    Takara will do a general retail release of this mold for sure.

    I dunno, given that everything else for the Japanese line so far is identical to the Hasbro releases I wouldn't be so sure. Sadly, it looks like this limited edition could well be the more accurate deco.

    It's Takara, if they released an entire Hasbro line unaltered in this day and age it would be a first so I see no reason to believe otherwise until I have seen more than a fragment of wave 1.

    Especially if wave 1 includes only three new molds, one of which we haven't even seen from Takara yet.

    Looks great, the normal release is just a waste of potential with those rabdom paints apps.

    Oh cool. A proper paintjob will probably do this mold so much more justice. Let's hope a similar version will see a main release eventually!

    Holding off buying the mainline one in hopes of a complete or close repaint at buster levels of detail.

    The sword and what looks like the shield are now in the correct colors. Even the wheels are painted. Hoping for a future repaint to have the same level of paint apps.

    Give it 6-8 months after the initial release and WeiJiang will have an upscaled AMAZING representation of it. Their M01 Commander is the most amazing figure in my collection.

    I'm holding out hope this mold will get some sort of "dark Optimus" mainline (or US store exclusive) release.

    Very tiny pics, but the alt-mode paint job already looks much better than the standard.
