    Does anyone have this yet? I've looked at it a few times when at Target, and can't decide whether I like it or not. I've seen two versions, one with a painted red cockpit and another with a translucent red cockpit - which I'm a little more partial to.

    Recommendations? Or should I let it go (or wait till it hits clearance)?

    Depends if you want tattoos or not. At least now you have a choice between this and the RotF voyager.

    That voyager mold is really great. If you don't have it, I recommend getting it at least once.

    Agreed. I have the ROTF version but I think I'll pick up the translucent cockpit Target version. Great mold.

    No, its not. Considering you can snag leader SS at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, etc, for about $25, the voyager is an easy pass.

    I honestly don't like it. I hate how the detailing is complete shit. A battle damaged transformer shouldn't have legs that look like they're made out of wet marble.

    There's a $3 off Coupon for Voyagers at Target.com, does anyone know if you can use it on the Voyager Exclusives?

    You can ask the cashier to override the rejection screen if the coupon is rejected.

    the Target Voyager SS has the tattoos in silver which blends in better with the more gray body. I am not a huge fan of that mold, but I do like it enough to have bought the original ROTF version. His elbows bend the wrong way unfortunately.

    Mine is pretty loose, but it looks fantastic as a figure for displaying. I'm not sure I'd recommend it as a toy just based on the one I have.

    the voyager mold is so wide across the mid chest. if you rather have accuracy over scale, i'd buy the deluxe instead.

    If this is an option, this. The voyager and deluxe are nice molds, but the leader trumps them both IMO.

    I've got the deluxe, both Starscream and Thundercracker - haven't been able to decide on the exclusive Voyager but I'm probably going to give it a shot.

    Haven't seen a leader SS in my area in a little while.

    I love the deco on the figure. I just don't care for the mold is all. Who knows, maybe the legs are sturdier than on the RotF Voyager I got, but that's a roll of the dice.

    If this would have been the new Deluxe mold with that deco, I would have been all over it.
