    So...... got sucked into the new Studio Series but not a fan of the SS Prime.

    I remember there was an AOE Battle Blades Prime re-issued or possibly KO version but I can't exactly remember... I'm not talking about the evasion one... but the battleblades one... any ideas?

    basically I'm trying to buy the best Voyager Prime to go with my SS

    I think you're looking for this guy, Takara Lost Age AD-12 Revenge Optimus Prime.

    I know you mentioned in the OP that you're not a fan of it, but honestly if you're buying to go with Studio Series, you can't go wrong with Studio Series Optimus. The back kibble doesn't look great, but it doesn't get in the way. SS Prime is way more posable than Battle Blades Prime, he has great proportions, and his transformation is super intuitive. Conversely, MPM Prime is fantastic, but he's too big to look good with Studio Series figures.

    Well, that re-issue is super expensive. If that is way out of your budget, I'd recommend my favorite movieverse Prime Voyager would be Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Optimus. It is a great looking toy with a fun transformation.

    Dunno if you aware, but the MPM mold has a few reported issues. A few 3rd party companies have apparently improved upon it.

    I know... but his legs are wierd.... by that i mean the covers for his wheels by his ankles are off

    I guess nothing a bit of paint wont fix... but the bottom portions of his legs just seem so off... and lack of guns... and short stacks...

    is it possible to extend the stacks and not have it affect transformation? ... plus that backpack??? why???

    If Hasbro is making an ROTF ver of SS Starscream, maybe they will update and do a DOTM ver of Prime thats improved? fingers crossed...
    It is the best.. but it doesn't transform into the movie cab... i know its G1 nod but i need something more SS oriented :( 

    do tell :)

    I'm with you on this one. I think there's a KO version floating around from China sellers on Ebay, but I don't know what the quality is like. Tempted to take a chance on it. I was hoping to find a thread here with more info.

    So I just ordered this on a whim from eBay. I'll let you guys know what arrives in my mail when it comes but I'm pretty sure I just paid for a sticker of Optimus Prime and not an actual toy.

    What was the Optimus, I think he was from Wal Mart? He had stars on the windows, and was a little bit darker. He also came with a little white truck dude.

    SS Starscream is too short and Blackout is the same, coming up to about MPM Prime's head.

    SS is designed to fit in scale with other bots from SS. I'm pretty sure BB Voyager is the same height or close to SS Prime so that should suffice.

    As far as "scale" goes, there's debates all over the board about it. I'm collecting MPM (or their KOs of equal height) and then collecting OS'd KOs of Blackout and Starscream.

    I've received the same message. I'm waiting to the earliest arrival date and if I don't receive it, I'm requesting a refund. Why do you think the seller was shut down? Illegally selling toys or maybe for showing a picture of one thing while sending something else entirely?

    So here's an update: eBay says the item arrives tomorrow but I haven't received anything and I've requested a refund already. Boo. :( 

    There are other KO sellers on eBay but who knows if they are legit or not... Plus I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay $30 to wait a month for another "item removed due to seller being skivvy" message...

    Much as the amount of OP toys is ridiculous I would really like a ROTF Prime who is the size of a current leader instead of the old movie leader size.
