    I watch the show but I don't really pay THAT much attention. Which prime is more accurate, the deluxe without the battle damage or the voyager? And which one has a more accurate ax? Thanks.

    Voyagfer represents Prime in his Earth form. The most accurate redndition of the character excluding the silly mouthguard gimick. Cvbertron mode Prime represents him as he was before he came to Earth. 2-Pack prime is based of Prime's Earth mode, but is less accurate but has the most accurate axe.

    If you want an accurate Prime, get Voyager and give him 2-pack's axe.

    Hasbro probably planned this knowing that hardcore fans would have no choice but to shell out the extra cash to have the most show-accurate Prime with the most show-accurate Axe. :banghead:

    Yes. Dropping THOUSANDS of dollars to screw over a small handful of collectors is a worthwhile business decision.

    Hopefully I can track one down in the next couple of days. Also hope he's as good as the deluxe one as I was pleasantly surprised by that one.

    It always is :lol

    You guys got Lugnut and Grimlock. I'd say you got the better half of that tradeoff.


    *Wants Lugnut*:(

    The success of premiums made them try something bolder.
