    I never bought the Voyager Optimus Prime from the first movie. Is this the same one? How many stars out of 5 would you give him?

    The same with Deluxe Bumblebee - is the same as the first movie, and how many stars?

    The Prime is a repaint from the first movie. He's a lot of fun! I would give him 4 out of 5 stars because of the backpack that he has is bot mode. It doesn't detract much, but I feel it's kind of lazy design.

    There are a few things on Bumblebee that are different. He's got a different right arm, head, and front end. I think the TFTM Bumblebee was one of the best Deluxe figures from the first movie and this one doesn't change it too much. I would also give this one a 4 out of 5 stars just because lining the panels up when changing back to alt mode can sometimes be a pain.

    I plan on getting the new voyager prime when I find him. The toy istelf is fantastic. The leg transformation is fun and complex, and the truck mode is nice as well.

    I have all four versions of the original mold. Great mold, I'm tempted to get this one too if the paint scheme is different enough.

    Anyone have comparison pics?

    I don't care for the Voyager Prime mold at all. Half of the truck mode sits on the robot's back, and it just looks way too skinny overall to me. 3/5 stars. Bumblebee isn't bad, just a little fiddly. 4/5 stars.

    Buy Prime. Don't bother with Bumblebee, wait for one of the newer versions. The old one was made of ass and annoying transformation.

    I liked the first movie BB, and this one has a more accurate head and color scheme. For ten (twelve >_<) bucks you can't go wrong.

    Primes great, but the backpack SUCKS. I thought they coulda made it collapse or something.

    Bumblebee... All his molds, (SAVE THAT SUCKY ULTIMATE BEE) are great. But I would wait for either that sweet HA Bee or the canon blast one.
