    I want at least one, but should I go for the cheaper Hasbro Space-ish looking Optimus with the seemingly trailer-accurate MechTech or the Takara Optimus with his regular gun (that becomes his sword) with no space parts? (and the trailer) Or should I just get both? (which would be really expensive)

    I can not decide.

    Honestly I'd skip on the both of them, but if you have to get one go for the one with the trailer.

    I already have it, and I want a Voyager Prime that won't come apart at the waist everytime I move his legs. :/

    Space Prime looks cool enough. His dad is space. Let them be a family again.

    Oh right, I thought by Space-ish Optimus you meant the one with the sparkly windows.

    I'd wait this one out. Maybe the Space version is featured in the movie, which might make it more worthwhile. I don't expect either will be in high demand, so you can probably safely wait at least till the movie is out.

    i'd rather the takara one without all the space bullshit on it.

    i don't care if its in the movie, i don't want space junk on my TFs unless they're a shuttle or something.

    Hell, just wait until Christmas in case Hasbro has another Voyager redeco/retool on deck.

    Seriously, NONE of these will be hard to get, better wait and see what develops than getting something opening day only to regret it a few months later.

    Yeah, I'm going to echo the wait-and-see. This Optimus is not grabbing me by the lapels and yelling BUY ME NOW, so you might as well wait and see which one you think represents the coolest bit from the film.

    Space OP, it looks great in person and is a fun toy to play with. Plus, it is good to have a different looking Optimus on your shelf

    Go completely the other way & get the new deluxe (when he's out); he seems to have the most going for him!
