    I agree with you. It being a voyager with the jet backpack explains the RK price of $57.

    I'm kind of digging it. May break my vow of no AOE toys (mostly $$$ not because of some principles pfft)

    That occured at the tail end of the line. Lots of things like that get cancelled. This is at the front of things.

    Besides, it took years but we finally basically got the combination with the excellent FWI jetpack for leader Prime. Unless you dislike the size, I'd say things worked out even better than Takara's would have.

    AOE first edition OP seems silly with it's huge backpack and not to mention it's a shellformer. but this seems different. i hope it is.

    nice truck mode with the added trailer backpack, but seems like the bot mode is hit and miss again, design wise.. :(

    We don't know that. It's clearly not the FE version, nor is it the AD-01/Generations version. It may be a completely different size class.

    At that price, it's got to be a fancy deluxe. Or perhaps just the backpack... though that would be really weird.

    Guys...not worth it, its one of the simplified figures, look at the size of that simplified Bee compared to him!

    Only redeeming feature is the trailer.

    It sucks that this thing has to have the best paint for any AOE Optimus figure so far.

    agreed. The takara leader version has a bit too much silver. this one is perfect. but is this guy a different mold or what?

    Ugh. That kibble is horrendously bad. I can't decide which looks worse, this or the FE...
