    You mean the new Voyager, right? I think it looks nice, and I want it in large part because we finally get a movieverse Matrix of Leadership with it. If I do get it I'll be grabbing a Grindor and making a Voyager scale forest battle diorama.

    I've never been happier about skipping a tf in my life. The added guns and matrix put him above the leader version on the coolness scale for me.

    I think he looks like a great figure. As a scaled down leader, he's very accurate and way better than the previous mold. Plus, he includes the Matrix and his guns in addition to swords! The only aspects I don't really like are the somewhat small feet and the lack of paint apps (lots of that ugly whitish plastic). But he definitely looks worth the 20 bucks to pick him up.

    I'm getting him. It will be nice tohave a prime that wont take half an hour to transform. Plus it looks way more accurate than the previous voyager. He's perfect for this new scaled-down wave of movie bots. And you get a matrix and guns-what's not to like?

    When we first shall pictures of him I was furious. I thought it was Leader Class Prime with a slightly different paintjob. (I noticed it in the swords) It took me 10 minutes to realize that it said "Voyager" in the picture. :lol 

    Long story short, I'll be getting him! :D

    I'm so torn. This Prime is in scale with my Megatron. But the Leader is in scale with my new Starscream!

    Also kind of expecting both Primes to get spiffied up in the Movie 3 line. And reselling would be a bitch at that point (who wants the one with fewer paint apps? Anybody?).

    I saw a new leader class Optimus the other day at TRU. He has the hooks instead of the blades and no mouth guard. Instead of saying "I am Optimus Prime", he says "We must stop the Decepticons." Didn't really notice anything else that was different.

    I'll be passing. He does look awesome, but I'll be holding out to see how the TF3 Primes turn out. I don't have a need for thirty different versions of movie OP. Since both RotF Primes (well, sans the repainted Movie 1 Voyagers) are vast improvements over the original movie molds, hopefully TF3 will bring us even better versions of the character.

    That would be the new Battle Hooks Optimus. Instead of the swords, he has those two hooks he used to destroy Grindor with. There's a new Voyager class coming out as well called Battle Blades Optimus. It's basically a scaled down version of the Leader class, but with a Matrix and two guns.

    i have all the movie Primes i need or care to want.
    (now there's other Primes left on my list from earlier generations.)

    he looks rather nice and it is good to see a more affordable, simpler version of the leader class. i think if i had known about this figure back before Christmas, i would have skipped the voyager i got for this one.

    so, imo, it is a worthy Prime to grab.

    I'll definitely be getting him. I think he looks far better than the other Voyager mold.

    I WANT him, he's the leader w/o the stupid electronics, and scaled to a cost I can get behind. I really want this mold, but I'm afraid that (like his TFTM Counterpart) He's gonna get loads of repaints, maybe even possible BETTER paint jobs. And I'm not in the business of buying multiples of molds, so do I get him now and have them come out with a better, dare I say Premium, paint job down the road. Or wait, miss him and they come out with a WORSE color scheme later?!? I'm so conflicted!

    I need him. The Leader class version has always been a bit too expensive for my tastes (I'm always hesitant to drop that much money on one toy, when I can get two or three other toys for the same price). Also, I have the voyager Megatron, and Leader class would be too big. This version caters to both my need for Voyager Megatron to have an opponent on his level and my need to save money.

    Plus the matrix and guns are very nice bonuses.
