    Voyager, but I think the c-mode is good in its own right.

    Voyager is good for these reasons:
    - great articulation
    - show accurate
    - face mask can go up and down

    cons
    - the transformation is kinda dumb. Go gravity spin rotation
    - the accessories are kinda lame. lol flood.
    - he's extra tall for some reason so he might not be in scale to others so well

    C Prime is good for:
    - articulation
    - fun axe feature
    - great alt mode
    - in scale with Sentinel Prime more than the voyager

    cons:
    - he won't blend in with the earth crew since this is a pre-earth mode
    - no face mask if you don't like 3: face
    - his only friend that's a c. mode is megatron bleh

    Voyager...I like him because he is a nice, neat, clean design..and because he hasn't descent size. I actually display him with my Classics because I prefer his animated look to the kibbly Classics Voyager Prime...

    Deluxe primes all the way. Earth mode and Cybby mode. Better axe, more fun transformation, heads are swappable to mimic the voyager feature and you can stay in scale to sentinel easier.

    I've been happier with the deluxes than I have the voyager.

    I haven't got either and quite undecided myself. If not for the axe I'd easily choose voyager, though. Facemask gimmick is neat.

    I plan on getting the Voyager. Looks a lot better than either of the Deluxe class figures, and will go better with the rest of my Animated Autobots. The axe isn't perfect, but it does look nice attached to his back.

    Honestly I'd go with both. Even the 2 pack Prime is pretty awesome, but between Cyb Deluxe and Voyager I think both are excellent toys.
    Cyb Prime has some of the best poseability from the whole line (loooove the gorilla style arms) and Voyager Prime is just pure badass regardless of his shortcomings (weapons, autospin waist).
    I doubt you'll be sorry.

    Here he is with 2pack's axe:

    Keep in mind, I added that autobot symbol:

    I will have to go with Voyager mode. He is much more fun to transform for me.

    The Voyager has the sexier look and besides his weapons he is more show accurate.

    Although the deluxe version has great articulation.

    They are both awesome figures. If I were you I'd get both, but if I could only choose one it'd be the voyager. Cybertron Mode is awesome but doesn't fit in with the rest since he is Pre-earth. Voyager fits in perfectly and his only downside is his axe.

    You can't go wrong either way. Get both. But if I had to choose, maybe Voyager, since his Earth form is his most used and fire trucks are cool.

    i actually prefer my cybertron dlx mode one better than my voyager one. and i passed on the battle pack. i hated the stress paint on them... i dunno, i feel like the cybertron mode is my favorite cause of his ax, and also his forearms are large too. they seem somewhat too small for my taste on the voyager one.
