    Different paint colors and of course Robovision. I'm getting Robovision...only because I preffer the shade of blue they are using.

    In the case of Optimus, it's different paint and a 'tech spec decoder' type thing. I'm not sure if the other Robo toys have different paint, though.

    the other robovision figures are target exclusives as well, and are all scout class repaints.

    If you cant pick between the two, buy both voyager primes, and give robovision prime the normal one's red parts (they seem to be the same shade of red), that way you get the full chest paint applications, the bright blue, AND the nice silver parts.

    Damn, I thought that the robovision prime was a leader class..... he's only a voyager. I wasn't even sure if I was going to get a voyager class since the leader class looks so good with the alts.

    I actually prefer the Voyager on this one...the backpack on the Leader Prime is way too big.

    Don't you mean it the other way around? The voyager one has the whole front end on his back.

    Thanks MS... I forgot about that thread... but once I read it again I remembered why I forgot it, robovision isn't that impressive.

    Let's be honest...it's a lame gimmick. The paint job is the only reason to get it IMO.

    The extra $5 for Robovision makes it seem like a huge waste. I'd get it for $20, but not $24.99

    Robovision Prime will be regular Voyager price starting Sunday, so if you can hold off a day, the $5 more will be gone. I picked him up today because I like the metallic paint and lighter blue, but to me he's not that great, Leader Class Prime blows him away by leaps and bounds.

    Of course, if you really want to wait, he'll be out in Voyager Wave 3 too.

    Regular. Robo-Vision looks like he had cheap silver paint sprayed on.

    So let me get this straight then, Robovision Prime will be $24.99 on Saturday & $19.99 on Sunday? Is that correct or am I totally off?

    That's correct....there's more on all the sales at the Allspark, but that's all I bothered to read, mainly because it caught my eye in another place.

    I mean, you might check my facts there, because I'm not all the reliable sometimes when it comes to numbers.

    Voyager Prime: Robovision or not?

    I want to decide which version of Voyager Prime to go for. Are there any good comparison pics out there yet?
