    Now shipping in the wave4 animated voyager
    assortment is a running change to optimus prime.
    Hasbro has added the autobot faction symbol.
    It is a silver symbol with a white backround.

    Hey Hasbro, I've got an idea. Now, I know it's kinda wild, but hey, hear me out, alright? How about making the Autobot emblem red on white, instead of silver on white? Huh? Whaddayathink?

    They already said they think it doesn't look as good as the silver/gold symbols.

    why does this happen with Prime, of all Autobots? First in Armada, and now again in Animated...even so, I may get this one and return my old version. that sigil looks very nice.

    Yeah, what ever happened to that one? I think it looks much better packaged in bot mode. Seems to fill the box up more, you know?

    At first It looked like they changed the red with a deeper color, but the second pic shows it more clearly.

    I'll just stiker mine up.

    Well, that's rather interesting. Has anyone bought one of these new versions yet? I'd be interested to know if they've stuck the sigil on both shoulders, or if it's just on the left like in the show...

    It doesn't look that bad, but I wish it where the classic Red with White outline.
