    Which to choose? Two great figures, but I'm not sure I can justify two purchases of the same character in the same line. So which would you choose?

    I think the Voyager is absolutely lovely, but then so is the Deluxe - and the latter is perhaps more accurate to show scale too.

    Decisions!

    The deluxe is ridiculously fun, don't know enough about the voyager.

    I hope to get the Deluxe. The Voyager is pretty cool, and the wrist swivel is a nice improvement, but I want a closer scale and I like how clean the First Edition's robot mode is.

    Deluxe is scale accurate, but after seeing in hand images of the voyager, I think it looks pretty good, does certain things I don't like.

    Take for example the jet engine, they put it on the sides of the voyagers feet, not sure why it had to be like that.

    But those new in hand images made the chest look better than it did at Toy Fair.

    I am certainly going to pick up the voyager but seeing a review will surely settle any dispute, but this line is pretty good, even on the weaker stuff so you could take a chance on the voyager

    I waited to see the Voyager... And now, I choose the Deluxe. And have to pay more.

    I'm sticking with the deluxe, the scale is better for the rest of the main line.

    Can't say for sure. Not enough of us have had it in hand, but the Voyager has a great head sculpt on it.

    Deluxe is a neat little toy, and in scale with the others in the line.

    Since I'm someone who has to have a jet-former be bigger than a car-former, voyager Starscream is perfect for me.

    The deluxe is great, but I'm too afraid I'll break it for some reason. So I might be getting the voyager too.

    The deluxe is nice and a great figure. And I like it more for the scale and it satisfies the character very well

    both...deluxe jet mode seems to small compared to shockwave jet mode and they both are the same size more or less on the toon....so ima keep my deluxe in bot mode and my voyager (when i get him) in alt mode....it might scale slightly better with shockwave but i dont know yet...

    Do you mean Soundwave?? Because Soundwave jet mode is pretty small itself.
