    Two more galleries for you to enjoy:


    Transformers Prime Optimus Prime Takara-Tomy First Edition Gallery by SydneyY
    Transformers Prime Bulkhead Takara-Tomy First Edition Gallery by Tony_Bacala

    I don't think these two toys need much more introduction - they are two of the very best Voyager Class Transformers ever designed in my humble opinion, with Optimus Prime being the very top of his class, an all-round awesome release.

    So without further ado, check out the galleries of their Japanese releases, which feature their own sharp decos when compared to their Hasbro counterparts.

    Hasbro havent you realized by now the mechtech weapons suck!
    i dont like to have figures holding light up boxes and trash can lids
    just give them normal weapons that is the best thing to do
    dreadwing has a big cannon! but i dont want to see a clear rectangle mech tech weapon in his hands it wouldnt match at all.

    As much as I hate the Powerizer stuff, I've actually come to think that the Powerizer mold is the better Optimus mold -if it were in the correct colors.
    The truck mode of the Powerizer Optimus is certainly better.

    Now that Bulkhead just looks amazing.

    The only way it's better is that it has side-view mirrors. Otherwise, it's proportions are all wrong.

    Optimus' truck mode is supposed to be exaggerated, with a huge engine block and proportionately tiny cab, making it look more powerful. Powerizer Prime's truck mode is more "realistic", with winder windows and a shorter nose, but as a result, winds up looking inaccurate and deformed, if you're going by the source material.

    Powerizer Prime's truck mode has cartoony proportions. And his legs in robot mode are weird and full of gaps.

    Sounds like that's just bad luck of the draw.

    I've transformed my Takara Prime numerous times, and there's no paint chipping.

    And it probably wouldn't be any different for the Hasbro version, either, since they're painted the same way. But my Hasbro Prime hasn't experienced that issue, either.

    Unless it was just a bad paint mix, or something.

    Yeah the feet on my Takara FE bulkhead (u jelly?) are starting to chip a little too... But he's way to fun to transform and play with so I say fuck the police! If he wears a little, he wears... not a huge deal in my book.

    Agreed. Relatively speaking, the Powerizer Prime isn't too bad compared to the FE, but I feel that the FE has better proportions in alt mode.

    Wish I had the takara Prime... got the Hasbro one a little while ago, still nice though. As an owner of Takara Bulk, I can say, pictures do him little justice, he's so shiny and dark green in real life.

    Prime's altmode's only flaw is the 'cramped' windows, I'd say. Sure the vehiclde modes aren't made to scale with one another, but it's hard to believe a human of any size could 'drive' in that small space, while all the other FEs have a wider, bulkier windshield space.

    D= Now I just need a FE Vehicon for completion!
