    Any difference with the Hasbro version, or is this just how Voyager Prime gets released in Japan?

    Based on those pics the only differences are the absence of chinese lettering on the hood. Is this the final product?

    According to Takara, it is "real life colour", it also says this is different from overseas version.

    I'd be interested in getting a e-hobby g1 prime cab in the movie flames deco. But for what this product actually is is sounds really silly to me.

    I mean there are only 9 voyagers out right now in the U.S. mainline:

    Desert Trakker Ratchet, Mixmaster, The Fallen, Megatron, Starscream,Stratosphere, demolishor, Ironhide, and Optimus Prime.


    There is'nt enough retailer space for Prime in japan's mainline?

    Wait...the only difference is that the chinese lettering on the hood is gone? Meaning that if I wanted it, I'd be paying a crapload of cash simply to get a toy, which I could also get with a normal American release ROTF Voyager Prime if I just used some Micro-Sol, an eraser, and 5 minutes of elbow grease*? Boooooring.

    *yes, this trick actually works to remove tamographs. I've done it to remove the Movie con symbol on the TRU exclusive Mudflap in my Universe Erector project, takes a moment to work but the Decepticon logo was gone without much fuss.

    the text is still visible on his leg in Robot mode. It's probably a placeholder image.

    It would be nice if we could see it instead of installing the language packs

    I don't get it, why not pick up the older Voyager Primes? Would that be more cost effective?

    So if ROTF did not display Comstructicon screen time, then sadly, I guess it's safe to assume we won't get Voyager Scrapper or Voyager Rampage! Mixmaster got a Voyager because we did get to see him more than once!

    I have no use for any of these prime repaints.

    Besides, I own Robo-vision Optimus Prime which is still by far the best version of this mold.

    Differences = none. The symbols ARE there in bot mode.
