    I have noticed people saying they're buying voyager Optimus and Megatron instead of the leaders. I'm planning on buying the leaders, but now, I'm not sure. Is there a difference between the two classes versions/what's the reason for buying the voyager instead of leader??

    main reason for many could be the cost, but Voyagers will be smaller which could be a consideration for those with limited display space, the leader class toys generally have light and sound gimmicks, which adds to the production costs and there fore retail price, i have not see a side by side comparision of the leader class Prime and his voyager counter part and same goes for Megatron so there is potential for a few finish differences and the transformation will vary due to size and potential design varianences

    For some it's the look of the toys, for others it's the price. Then you have people who decide which one to get based on both factors.

    Ok, I understand the price factor. Is there a huge difference in the looks between the two classes versions?

    Can't you just look at the photos? And yes, there is a significant difference.

    Ok-so what are the differences? (I mean as in the coloring, the mold, etc.)

    Yeah, it's really not that difficult to look up, but...

    The good ones this time around are Leader Prime and Voyager Megatron.
