    If I do end up getting these toys - and I am tempted - I would have to go with the Voyager.

    I'm interested to see if we get a sharper looking figure from TakaraTomy, though. Might just wait and see...

    Looks pretty boss, but I need to see what Takara will do with it.

    Wow, that may be one of the best Voyager Primes ever, if not the best. It looks practically identical to the show models, and has barely any kibble. Plus it comes with BOTH his weapons. Even the cheap-looking grey plastic doesn't look that cheap.

    Y'know, that shiny finish Takara did for TFA toys would work really well for TFP toys.

    Can't wait to get this, though I really wish it was like the hand painted version I saw at NYCC.

    That's what I'm thinking... I have a feeling Takara's versions will just have that extra touch that will really make the mold shine.

    We'll see, though.

    Fortunately, Voyager Prime should be in abundance, and I can wait for a good sale to get a second one just to have the extra weapons.

    Voyager Prime looks about perfect, but that hinged chest on the deluxe kills it for me.

    These really need better paint. The colors are so dull, and the gray plastic is incredibly cheap looking.

    I hope Takara steps up and gives us shiny.

    God-like. My first priority when the new figures hit.

    While Voyager Prime is a definite improvement over the Deluxe, it is kind of disappointing to see he's not as tall as I had thought he was based off of pictures of him in in Hasbro's display cases. Eh, I'll still get him, though I will keep open to the idea of a Leader class version of him, in-case he and Megs do turn out to be the two in the works.

    From what I've seen, the Takara releases are no different than Hasbro's. In fact, the figures shown in all these galleries we've seen could very well be the Takara one's (they have been released after-all). Even the packaging is exactly the same beyond the addition of a sticker on the front.
