    Here's the image again in blown up o-vision.
    You can see that his axe is in odd colours because it's designed to blend in truck mode.

    Voyager Optimus Prime looks awesome. It's nice to see that he has show accurate colors (unlike the Deluxe 2-pack version of him). I definetly plan to get him.

    voyager prime looks very nice, is that black running across is arms and axe? looks nice on the vehicle. that could possibly be the most awesome prime yet (i'll decide when i see it in person when the earth has moved almost halfway round its orbit, the wait is a killer.) and now its confirmed, theres his gun. so the axe and gun combine to form the back of teh truck. the truck is very neat, a fun design.

    I so much prefer this over the very complex looking cybertron (ie galaxy force) and movie primes. I imagine his actual transformation is quite simple and a pleasure rather than being to any degree frustrating, if that is so that will be a very important point for kids.

    from other proto shots you can work out the lower leg TF to a degree, it looks quite satisfying, the rear wheel is flipped in to become the wheel on the inner leg and the front bumper and wheel section come down to replace the outer wheel!

    at the very least this shows kids/parents (who most likely dont frequent TF forums) that there are animated toys coming soon, most likely the kids upto now will have seen an ep or two but had virtually no indication of a toy line, and just what self respecting kid doesnt peruse lovingly over those toy catalogues!!!!

    Voyager Prime has been a real tease artist so far, second only to Earth mode Megatron. I can't wait to see some good detailed pictures of him so we can see clearly his neat little tricks like the retractable faceplate and wing mirrors.

    The battle pack and voyager primes actually look different enough that I wouldn't feel bad getting both... I like that the battle pack version is a more G1ish style as opposed to mirroring the cartoon (thus not competing with the Voyager on the same plane) exactly. Now the only problem is deciding whether I'll be getting voyager cybertron megs as well...

    Huh, he doesn't have his wing mirrors retracted in that pic, I hope they didn't take it out at the last minute.
    Cheers for teh non blurry pic Joopsta. :thumb

    Bigger scan of everything animated please. I think I prefer the deluxes, but they all look good.

    I don't think there's a Prime in existance that can hold a candle to Animated Voyager Prime. He is pure, dripping, epic WIN.

    These catalogs have been out for a while now. I bought a concept deluxe bumblebee in Dec. '07 and it came with this catalog. I never opened him but you can see the catalog on the bottom inside the packaging.
