    His body looks too tall somehow. The way they did the windows is... wrong. Looks like he's got two shiny square bandages on his chest. That's part of what makes his body look too tall, more of it is that they painted parts red near the crotch they shouldn't have.

    I'll stick to the voyager and a little tin of silver paint thanks.

    WTF? Prime is not Cheetor.

    That's the kind of thing that annoys me with the movie though, I hear his personality is a lot more "XTREEM" than before, no doubt TF Animated Prime will be too.

    I'm not sure it's "XTREEM" to think something is cool. It's OK for Prime to have preferences. Maybe his personality can have some facets beyond MEGATRON = BAD and FREEDOM = GOOD.

    Damn I hate that box! It looks sweet, but is going to be a bitch to find a good quality one to keep MISB.

    Well, slag, if it's coming out June 2nd AND it has better paint apps, the normal Voyager Prime sure is going to be a shelfwarmer in any areas with Targets...

    The metallic is nice, but I'm not fond of the sculpt of this mold. I'll have to look at both in-package, in-person, but I'm still heavily leaning towards the Leader-class Optimus Prime.

    You speak heresy! Prime is a stoic, black and white character as is not allowed emotion or preference!

    That said, I cringe at the "most awesome" line. At the same time, I know the person who wrote that was probably told "put some more hip wording in there. like ... "most excellent!" or whatever it is the kids say nowadays!" so I can't hold it against them.

    As a side note... I think I prefer the dull grey plastic and darker blue to the light blue and silver. The loss of blue and copper paint apps isn't worth it to me, and only having certain parts of him shine just looks ... I dunno. Not as good.

    Plus, that light blue ruins it. Regular voyager will probably be for me.

    No, he just has a set personality that wouldn't really have him thinking about the coolest thing he's ever seen, and even if he did in some brief flash of over-coolness, it wouldn't be something as simple as a flaming truck.

    That's not light blue. Its just blue. Cartoon Thundercracker is light blue.

    I believe this colouring was to make his base colours look more like G1 Prime's.

    When is Regular Voyager Prime out? It sucks so bad releasing it later, I really really want that guy. The later it releases in the US, the later in releases here... we might not get him until August. I don't want to have to wait that long.
