    Which Dark of the moon Voyager Prime should I go with? Color scheme on Fireburst doesnt bother me so I dont think thats an issue. I believe the mechtech weapon to be the biggest deal breaker, so which do I go with?

    I like the looks of Fireburst myself. My HFTD Voyager Prime will remain.

    I went with Fireburst. The sculpt is covered with solar panels and other non-film details, so you may as well go all out crazy with the deco. Fireburst's Mechtech is really cool, although frustrating if the gears get misaligned.

    And overall I have heard some think the mold sucks, and others that like it. I confess megatron needs an inscale Prime. The original mechtech gun looks like a solid good gun thing but I havent seen much of FB yet.

    If you want a movie-accurate prime, get HFTD Battle Blades Optimus. He's on clearance for $9.99 at hasbrotoyshop. Find another $15 worth of goods, get free shipping, and don't forget DISC10 to cover your sales tax.

    For DOTM I'm getting Fireburst deco. Love the paint apps and the mechtech weapon so much that I don't care if it's not screen-accurate. I have other Primes to fill that role; Fireburst is just for the pure fun of it!

    Heck you could get both of these on HTS right now for under $30 shipped, not bad really!

    I got the space one with Comettor. It's rad, despite the moon and stars. The price didn't hurt, either.

    This is all my own opinion, but Battle Blades Optimus Prime really is the best movie voyager Prime. I would seriously consider getting him over the DotM version, which is a piece of crap, fireburst or otherwise.

    Battle Blades Prime is the same height as DotM Megatron. I have both, and they look fantastic together.

    You can get the original Battle Blades Prime from HTS, or get the Walmart exclusive retool that comes in a two-pack with Commetor, if you don't mind his stars and moon deco.

    Without question Fireburst. The amazing deco and amazing weapon really sold me.

    Definitely Fireburst Prime. It doesn't matter to me that he isn't perfectly movie accurate since I already have far better looking Primes (BB Prime, Buster Prime). I want one and only one iterration of this mold and IMO FB Prime has the best look and had a nifty weapon to boot. The only minus is that I would've loved to gett the regular version's gun as well... But I'm now actually thinking about getting a deluxe Prime and use his gun instead so that it doesn't look gifuckingnormous in his hand.
