    Ordered the red and blue version of Universe Voyager Leo Prime and it came today.....the mold is AWESOME especially in the red/blue/silver color scheme.

    Never owned this mold in any form before and I LOVE IT!! I believe that it is vastly underrated. Are there any other versions/color schemes for this mold besides the Target exclusive white version?

    I picked one up the other day because it was cheap and I wanted the mold. Don't particularly like the red and blue colour scheme. To be honest I'm not fond of it as an Optimus-like character at all. Decent-ish arm articualtion but the leg articulation is utter crap. It's like the designers got down to the waist and just gave up on the bits below it.

    I always hated the look of this sculpt but I decided to give this recent Target repaint a try and I ended up really liking the figure. He hangs out with my Brave toys and they get along just fine. :)

    Press the autobot crest to see his mouth open. In the first two versions of this mold this also has a roaring sound effect that was removed later. But its still a nice touch of character for what is left.

    Heck, even if you had the sound effect its powered by watch batteries. Which can be a little overpriced to replace.

    I have Dark leo Breaker. Universe Leo Prime (red blue), and so far three copies of the red and white leo prime.:rolleyes2
