    Is this the voyager/powerizer equivalent from Takara?
    I think it is, but none of the sites that have it listed for a preorder really are clear about what scale he is.

    I think i've seen more listings at a DX Price point than anything else?

    Yeah see that's where I'm a bit confused.. The price is rather low, but outside of the first edition deluxe pack, I'm not familiar with an RID prime deluxe megs.. Eh.. Perhaps I'll just look hard for a second RID version and paint it myself..

    Well if it is a DX Price point, it probably is the same mold again;.

    But why would they re-release the deluxe version so soon? Seems unlikely.

    Japan will sell the exact same toy with 2 extra peices for an extra $50 six months later.

    Welcome to the hell that is japanese toy collecting.

    Well he does come with a Micron. That and the Powerizer Voyager's gimic doesn't fit with what Takara is doing. I'm pretty sure they are also going to handle the Voyager of Optimus different... like color the clear bits of plastic in the arms.

    I'm kind of glad they are doing it this way, now I don't have to buy a second DX Megatron for loose. I can wait a bit and get one with a Micron as well. :D
