    Damn, if that's the price I am not interested. I would be happy getting him to display next to the Fallen, and leaving Leader Prime and Jetfire as their individual characters. The combined mode just looks a lot more movie-accurate, and better scaling.

    Assuming the voyager isn't a heavy remold, like a reduced-size version or something, then the Jetfire parts would have to put it into the range of an Ultra or Human Alliance. If Hasbro releases it, I'd guess the $30-$35 range and as a store exclusive since it probably wouldn't fit one of their standard pricepoints... possibly a new pricepoint by himself a la the NEST 2-pack of course too.


    If it was sold separately I probably would buy one since I have a voyager OP. If not sold separately, yes, not worth the money to me.

    However, I seriously doubt it would ever be sold separately since it doesn't really have independent modes and is just accessories. "Accessories" just aren't sold on their own anymore.

    But maybe that wouldn't even be possible... maybe Voyager OP is remolded for the combination. While apparently Animated Wingblade Prime isn't remolded, Animated Prowl did have to be remolded for combining with his armor. Plus it's evident Prime has at least 1 face-taking-sword. Is that contained within the Jetfire parts or is he remolded and that's a part of Prime-proper?

    LOL!

    Officer: Mr. Prime do you know fast you were going? *writes ticket*

    Prime: err no sorry my Speedometer got slagged about a month ago and I have been after ratchet to fix it but he has been too busy, so can i get off with just a warning?


    seriously i think this will be my Jetprime and ill pass on the Megs as my voyager is good enough, and I hope this comes to the US at a much lower price than what Maxlinden said

    I like this enough to get it if it comes out domestically, but not to pay import costs. as others have said, for the price might as well get buster Prime

    It Does kind of makes me wonder why they didn't make a "Partsformery" Voyager Jetfire that could combine with Prime instead of just the spare parts.

    ..and hey, that might be the first Movie Megs to not look like COMPLETE @$$.

    I hate myself for wanting them. I must not allow myself to buy anymore ROTF figures.

    This keeps happening: I custom painted my Megs that color scheme already, and I'm over halfway done building Voyager Prime Jetfire armor out of an SR-71 model already.

    Still, the painting and building are half the fun for me, so I really shouldn't complain. I guess what bums me is it makes what I'm making a lot less unique...

    If that's truly just Voyager Prime again, I'd hope they'd give the option of buying the Jetfire/trailer/armor separately. I know that won't happen, but still.

    Only way I could see an individual release would be as like a mail-in premium a la Ravage. There was some rumor about the possibility of another promotion for the "yellow box line" after the NEST promotion...? I still doubt that would happen.

    I like the look of the Megatron Repaint (Voyager) and red missile looks nice as well with him.

    EUR 65.95 = 89.81071 U.S. dollars (Thank you Google) x-3

    Its not USD it can't be..... LIES I SAY, LIEEEESS!
    But either way, its still not worth that price.... Like I said Buster Prime is worth the price but this figure is not....


    I rather they just make a Jetfire Voyager instead of this waste of money.

    But, I'm saying this, the Megatron is not a waste of money and is on my list of toys to get.
