    Is anyone else as struck as I am at how special these things look? It's like they're tiny leader class figures. They have chunk, yet they are intricate. They have detail, yet they are stylized. They have size, yet are voyagers.

    I am so excited for these.

    I am sitting on the fence with these. They remind me too much of the movie formers and I hate those with a passion.

    I don't know about the size, as we have yet to really see them next to anything most people own.

    They could be as small as the DOTM voyagers. That's what I'm expecting.

    I'm not seeing that. When I think leader class, personally I think Cybertron, and the leaders for that line are pretty much the best TFs ever to me, so no.

    The aesthetic is pretty much a middle-man between TF animated, and the movie lines, and the toys pretty much look the same.

    They're decent, and really stay true to the show, but I haven't seen one Prime toy yet that really "awes" me.

    I can't get over the color of Primes gun... but I'm probably going to buy 2 of each(maybe 2 Primes and 1 Bulkhead).

    Using the shot of the deluxe and voyager Optimus together, my best guess is Voyager Op is close to the same height (at the head) as Classics voyager Op, or HFTD voyager Battle Blades Op. (somewhere between the two, depending on leg positioning.)

    I think it is way too early to say how intricate they are, and I think there is a fair amount of jumping on the every new series is the greatest bandwagon we get with each new series that comes out. I am still on the fence on these, but will probably pick them up, just so that I don't have to try to track them down late in the game.

    Here's a comparison with the deluxe, though I have no idea how tall that one is.

    I have to agree. The TFP Voyagers are amazing.

    Especially Prime....He may be THE BEST looking voyager prime ever. I can honestly say that I'm in awe of him.

    While not quite as effusive as some on here, though they have every right to be, I'm pleased enough with these to be absolutely squealing like a fangirl over the thought of Skyquake. Some of the car deluxes - Vehicon, Cliffjumper - were slightly off in my opinion, which has quelled my expectations for Knock Out and Break Down.

    Who else gets voyager treatment in this line? Megatron and Starscream, right?

    Please say Airachnid.

    Starscream is definitely getting the voyager treatment, but I actually prefer the look of the deluxe.

    But yeah, I absolutely love the look of the two voyagers so far.

    Deluxe is about normal for the height of a Deluxe, having seen the SDCC one in hand and had a good look at Bumblebee.

    I should hopefully have the Voyagers soon. Should I do galleries, I'll include size comparisons. Maybe a Prime Optimus / Movie Optimus group shot?

    Out of everyone I've seen, I think I'll be grabbing me a voyager Bulkhead. Though my small collection is wholly movieverse with the exception of animated Blackarachnia (she's just too good!), Bulky, like many have stated, is "movie" enough to score my interest. Not meaning to offend the Prime fans or mock the rest of the toyline btw. But he really stands out to me, so yeah, want him. Whenever he hits Australian retail.

    Hopefully we get a legends (or whatever.that size class is called for the Prime toys) class Arcee. Loved her bayverse legends scale, but not the whole Wheelsnake thing.
