    Out of all the released mold and their respective redecos, which is the best Voyager Optimus Prime mold and deco for that mold?

    The poll represents the mold but you can mention in the thread which deco.

    I'm digging on Evasion. Just got him yesterday and he looks really cool in alt and bot modes. Kinda annoyed they just announced that awesome 2 pack though. The paint apps on that one look tons cooler than the one in stores now. Maybe I'll have to get some model paint and go to town.

    My brain says Battle Blades is the best but I gave Ultimate the sentimental vote. It's just a very fun toy. Has an old school powermaster feeling to it.

    I think the Revenge Optimus from TakaraTomy is a serious contender...I saw him at an import shop and he looks like a 'down sized' version of the ROTF Leader Class version.

    Battle Blade. Great looking figure that gives you a fully-loaded Optimus with guns and blades.

    Evasion all the way. So well Engineered, yet so small.

    I have a soft spot for all of them actually. The only ones I haven't handled are Battle Blades and Ultimate, though I've seen extensive photo reviews and in person in-package.

    I'm throwing my vote to Evasion Optimus. It's just so much fun. I see what is so loved about Battle Blades but the actual blades drive me crazy, and he doesn't have Optimus' big stompy feet. Evasion Optimus cheats like nobody's business, but he still has an interesting transformation that incorporates actual vehicle parts, and he's a great demonstration of how the movie-formers can assume a new alt-mode. Plus he's all geewunny.

    I can say I haven't... but won't need to even own it before making this vote. Battle Blades Prime was like a mini version of the Leader Class toy (which was an AWESOME toy) AND it managed to fit more in by giving him guns! Evasion Prime looks awesome, but I doubt any voyager in the near future approaches the play value and screen accuracy, fun transformation and what you get for what you paid... Evasion Prime doesn't have as many guns, the transformation is more straight forward... but he's not even as detailed at BB Prime (which managed to have a mini flippin Matrix in Prime's chest).

    I could see Evasion Prime being 2nd.... but first? Nah.

    They all have something going for them IMHO, but not owning BB, I can't intelligently vote. I love Evasion but my owning the RotF leader mold makes me wonder if BB isn't possibly better.

    I don't own BB because I don't really need two figure that basically do the same thing but at different sizes.

    I have the Takara version and yeah that is the better deco than the rest but the new redeco from the Advanced line has potential.

    I have both. BBOP by a wide margin for me. Prefer the transformation and that he incorporates all of OP's weapons.

    I have to give it to Evasion Mode Optimus for the strictreason that not only does torso look amazing, but he also succeeds in the leg department where Battle blades Optimus kinda failed.

    BTW I'm going on looks alone. BBOPs looks good from the waist up, but to me, his legs look bad, and his feet are way too small.

    Evasion Mode, HANDS DOWN.
    Absolutely no toy before has so accurately captured the feel of the design so well, except maybe the DMK and Revoltech (but even then, their proportions seem a bit too cartoony).

    I had to go with Battle Blades Optimus Prime. Evasion Prime is a very close second. The only thing keeping it from taking the top spot is the little issue with those front panels breaking off.

    I don't have Evasion Mode Optimus in hand. But I have to say that all these years later, I think I like the Robo Vision version of 2007 Optimus better than Battle Blades. I know that may be considered sacrilege. I have them both and while I preferred Battle Blades for a while because of it's on screen accuracy, the toy takes freaking forever to transform and half the time the matrix comes loose and gets jammed during transformation. I just think the 2007 mold was a more fun toy.

    I voted for the 2007 movie voyager Optimus Prime. WHY??? Because even after 7 years, I still enjoy the heck out of it. The long smokestack guns with firing projectiles, his ability for dynamic poses, and the overall cool look to him in both modes. I also like his transformation. Yes, he's got back kibble, and no, he's not nearly as accurate compared to ROTF Battle Blades OP. Don't get me wrong, I love ROTF voyager Prime! But somehow I get more enjoyment out of the 2007 design. In particular the Robo Vision version.
