    Now featuring the typical silvery 25th Anniversary logo like the rest of the size classes.

    Still no luck on the Inferno bio. Darn.

    I haven't seen that mold used for Vector Prime in person yet... it seems big in the box compared to Inferno.. assuming the boxes are both the same size. Still on the fence over VP. Getting Inferno for sure.

    Inferno looks good as always. Vector Prime, while I like the repaint of his sword, his paintjob looked terrible as far a color choice imo.

    That would be because the entire nosecone of Vector's alt mode folds over onto his back. Only the very back makes up his body, and his legs are both folded underneath.

    Ahh, Vector Prime. Another wonderful "25th Annivesary" reminder from Hasbro on just how cheap they have gotten on painting a figure. No paint at ALL on his legs.

    I mean, this is just a disgrace. Ugh. Vector Brown Turd to the rescue!

    Vector Prime is just awful. How anybody could give the ok to that repaint is beyond me. It has all the features and appearence of something you would find floating near the U bend. Quite possibly the easiest of easy passes for me.

    Inferno, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. Full of love and a must buy.

    Hasbro's not getting cheap, everything (ie. plastic, paint, labour etc.) is getting more expensive; surely you must've noticed.

    The box art on these guys rocks! I especially like Inferno's. Can't wait to read his bio.

    His colour scheme is based somewhat upon the Last Autobot, which Vector Prime was originally based upon in terms of design.

    I don't believe so.

    Initial photos showing it looking like it was metallic blue and bronze made it look like Last Autobot, but just black and brown doesn't look close to it in any way...

    Actually, the Vector Prime mold is HUGE for a Voyager class, in both modes. He fairly towers over most other Voyager figures.

    Add to that some solid construction, an amazing amount of surface detailing, good articulation, a minicon, concealed sword, firing missile gimmick and electronic sound gimmicks, and he's actually a pretty damn good figure for the money.

    On the down side, his transformation is pretty simple, and his alt mode doesn't really look like anything in particular. Just a weird clockwork/steampunk spaceship (which is cool in its own way I guess...).

    Be that as it may... the end result is a really UGLY deco on this figure. Not tempting at all...

    The other thing about Vector is that his design is so distinctive, so unique, that repaints don't really have much appeal to me. I usually like repaints to represent a new character, not just the same character I already own in a slightly different colour. In that sense, one Vector Prime is enough for me. Pass. Hasbro can move along to other repaints already...

    Can't wait to get Inferno; Vector Prime repaint, on the other hand, looks absolutely awful. He's a great toy, but that colour scheme is terrible on him. I don't care who it's based on (and yes, I am well aware).

    Inferno isn't a repaint from another line is he?
