    I'm looking to attempt a custom, and I am curious on what the price range is for this figure. It can be any variation of the voyager prime mold, as it's going to be cut up anyway :ev:  On ebay I see him around the $25-$30 range, but I was wondering if I could get one cheaper anywhere.

    Thanks a lot! That saves me $12 or more to buy a used one on ebay. In fact, it probably saves me even more since the other figure I need for the custom is also on the site.

    I've read up on them, and they are the exact same size as the stock ones, and great quality too.

    Which is the same size if I am not mistaken, right? I can't really tell since I've never had one in hand :(

    Unfortunately, I've never seen a deluxe version of the voyager for sale. However, there was an unreleased deluxe version of it:

    Well, that's the deluxe bayverse prime and the original G1 prime. If you were aiming more for something like the regular classics prime, then I don't think either is really suitable for you. Reasons being G1 Prime is a brick, and Bayverse prime only fits in with bayverse stuff. However, you can also decide for yourself :D 

    EDIT: I also realized that you sent a second link with the deluxe prime I just posted. That one would work, but you would probably be better off with a non-clear version.

    Well, I am planning a custom, so I will be getting the KO Voyager classics one. Honestly though, if I was collecting it, I would just buy the voyager Classics Optimus. Reasons being that it's probably one of the most fun and best primes out there, won't cost as much as some others, and most of the others are "meh" molds.

    Henkei Optimus Prime. It's basically the Classics voyager version with a more G1 paintjob and chrome. It's what the Japanese got, while we got the other one with random splotches of yellow paint. :redface2:  It costs at least $100 today, which is obviously a LOT of money. However, you can remove the yellow paint from the classics it would be "almost" as nice. :)
