    Remy has a gallery of RoboVision (vision... vision... ion... on..) prime up on tfkenkon.

    http://tfkenkon.com/g/?mode=album&album=Collection/act442

    Whee!

    Some highlights: RV Prime hauling G1 prime's trailer, hanging out with Classics and G1 prime, and the voyager prime mold generally looking awesome.

    I like regular VYGR Prime better, more paint apps.

    More is subjective. It's got more little ones on the hips and waist and chest. Robovision has flames on the roof, a painted windshield, and a silver coating on all of his gray parts.

    Ounce for ounce, I'd say Robovision has more actual paint. The apps he loses are a little more obvious than the ones he gains over the regular version, though.

    I do like the regular version more overall, though. I wish he had the painted windshield... that's pretty much the only thing I miss. Dull grey plastic has become pretty standard on modern primes, so the shiny silver will look a little off on my shelf, and I definitely prefer the darker blue plastic.

    Don't like the silver. Regular version's chest looks better too.

    Dammit, Remy. Stop making American exclusives look so good. I already decided to only buy the leader version, too, so you just stop that. STOP IT.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......Look at those long smokestacks............makes you wonder the G1 reissue and the 20th Ann. Primes had to have short stacks......


    I have often wondered...why did they give Prime flames? Now I am not complaining but I just wondered...it's different than normal. Was it just to be different?

    I like this one but it irks me that they didn't paint the entire chest like the regular version.. just the two center squares.

    Almost every part that is just bare gray plastic on the standard release is painted silver on this one.

    That said, I like the darker shades of red and blue on the standard release better

    Flames are a pretty common deco for trucks like that, and handy for a two-color deco.

    Sorry, I meant more detailed paint apps. The regular version has a more detaild robot chest whereas this on is more plain.

    My apologies for not being more specific.

    I have never seen a real truck on the road, that has flames painted on it. Besides, the first movie left a bad taste in my mouth, as far as flame painted characters are concerned.

    I preffer the regular version, myself. Better colors, and fewer flames.

    I have, they come down the truck bypase all the time. Though not the exact same model as Prime, they are long-nosed, and I've seen many (or the same over and over) white ones with purple flames, a metallic-dark and light green truck with a flame deco similar to Prime's, among others. And, although not flames, I've seen other crazy stff on cab's before.

    I like trucks, so I can remember this stuff, though the white/purple ones are kinda weird lookin', but the green one was HOT!!!

    Looks good, fortunately I am not digging this Prime enough to buy multiple versions...I'll probably settle with a regular voyager.

    Those stacks are made of rubber, and they're soft enough to rub your eyeball with.

    Voyager Prime's smokestacks are plastic, not rubber.
