Yes indeed folks! At long, long last the Transformers Prime First Edition Voyagers have been released at US retail. They've been out online for a little while now, but this second run of the mind-blowingly awesome First Editions is now beginning to turn up at retail. Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Bulkhead, two of the very best examples of the size class to have ever been designed, were spotted at a TRU in St Louis, MO by 2005 Boards member slackerforhire, who is most certainly not slacking in sharing the good news with us!

Happy hunting everyone! Far be it from this newsie to gush, but these are two of my favorite toys ever made. Hopefully with this second run now hitting retail many of you can get a shot at picking these up and seeing why for yourselves.

Finally. Looks like it was worth the wait. When does the sale end?

Kickass.

Side note: is your Prime missing the paint on the sides of the cab?

I haven't had a chance to open it, but just by looking at the hinges on either side of his torso, it looks like they're the same as BBTS's stock.

so to call should I ask for the last six digits on the product on the receipt?

Drat! Can't swap mine out then. Still, its good that that toy is finally available in the US.

What are those other discount you have on your receipt besides the b1g1 half off?
Sludge
As Mr. Burns would say: Excellent!!!!

Maybe I can finally grab a FE Bulkhead.
Spin-Out
Figures. I ordered Bulkhead off eBay a few days ago :U
BenjaminXavier
Another side note: can a mod edit the title to spell "edition" properly? OP was on his phone, so its understandable, but it'll be a killer to searches down the road.

Thanks.

Well it's about damn time.

Groupon had a 3 day (I think) deal - $10 for a $20 TRU credit last weekend. I think the Rewards R Us certificate was just due to buying a bunch of stuff at TRU lately and having them scan my rewards card at checkout. I don't keep track of rewards I accrue through that, because it's rarely enough to get a certificate. However, I received an email last Sunday saying my $4 credit was ready to print. I didn't question it... I just used it

Well, I have Bulkhead, but I still need Prime, so that's good.
General Magnus
Can someone hook me up with Prime?

It was worth it to me at the time, and still is, as mine don't have missing paint apps or stress marks anywhere.

It is good that those that missed the first go-around can finally get two of the best Prime figures made.
The Swordsman
Hopefully Optimus will be cheaper on Ebay now.
Enigma2K2
Let the chaos.. commence. And if I may be allowed to paraphrase GogDog's sacred words... if you see a scalper, kick him in the dick.
Fallout
cool.
mikenoynoy
It feels like 2011
deliciouspeter
Awesome.
Omegax80
Scalpers and the hoarders with inventory are probably crapping themselves now.

It was only a matter of time until the FE Voyagers hit mass retail.

Glad I wasn't one of the many who impulsively could not wait.
JETFIRE-XL
what's up with the paint on these. I got my prime in january for $46 bucks best money I spent in a long time. These paint aps suck wow
FigNewton
The paint apps do suck. Thankfully he'll be spending 99% of his time on my shelf in bot-mode and I'll never notice it.
Sideswipe80
My store never got these, thankfully BBTS sent me my Optimus weeks ago. Cool toy.
Grimwing
Just scored some first edition vehicons while checking toys r us.com for these.

BOGO goodies.

Yeah, those brown parts around the doors should all be red. They're red on mine and everyone I've seen. Not sure what's up there.
rodster6
Hope they come out in the UK one day.
Orion_Prime48

avc-prime

Some paint and a decent brush aren't expensive either.
madhatprime
Ive been waiting for this prime since Botcon 2011... and now I have no money... =( Anyone want to buy a TRU commemorative Skywarp for $25
PcPrime23
So buying Optimus and Bulkhead
AutoBobby

Sweet, thanks for that update! When you get a chance, fill us in on the Bulkhead too...are the biceps still stress marked so that when you turn the arm it falls off?
f-primusunicron
here we got them since the first half of the year
XP
Shockwave9227
Awesome.
Bathawk
sorry, coming in a little late oto the party here....what's up with these "first editions"?

is it just the original toys with more show-accurate color scheems like henkei/hasbro? or are there more to these 'bots?
JacobPGalvatron
I'm crying. There's tears in my eyes. I'm so happy.

Totally different toys. Orignially meant to be part of the "generations" line, later delayed, then canceled. Now coming out later as TRU exclusives.

These two voyagers are better versions than the PRiD versions. The deluxes are 50/50
Optimist_Prime
I'd like one with the painted doors, but I almost don't dare use ebay for this. Who knows what I'll be getting. Unless I buy the Takara version.
GAUGE
How convenient that they come out when most people are broke for the holidays

oh well, at least the scalpers will be able to scoop'em all up.
WheelWave140
SOoooooo glad, my parents only buy from TRU. I'm thinkin' there's gonna be a few FE's under my tree.
