    I'm not certain about that. I don't see Starscream getting a new look in TF3 but we are getting a really great figure in a few months. We know Prime's look will be getting a tweak to make him look more heroic, but I don't see any major redesigns in that way.

    Plus, movie Prime has become somewhat iconic. A different look may lose that.

    I'm not digging the proportions of the new Prime. Skinny legs, stubby feet, HUGE back kibble... Unless there is a Power Up Prime Armor Add-On kit, I'll bite. Or if I have nothing better to do... lol. He might make a good candidate for modding.

    That is an epic backpack on Prime.

    I hope the Matrix is removable.

    I actually like the Insecticon less now.

    Black and white Buzz actually looks pretty darn good. I'm digging that he is a Headmaster. That's probably the single thing that pushed me over the edge to PO the darn thing.

    I didn't realize that Prime was a voyager...that's a pretty damn good deal for a Voyager.

    Something must be up. Hasbro is being too nice to us.

    my question is why didn't hasbro give us this when rotf came out instead of giving us the earlier crappier voyager movie mold >=/

    but yes, the optimus is an instant buy for me...swords+guns+matrix=win

    the others...not so much

    I'm very, very tempted to buy that new Voyager Prime. So much goodiness in such a small package, given how great ROTF Leader Prime is. I fear, if I do buy it, I might as well buy the upcoming Deluxe Ironhide and current Deluxe Ratchet to have a nice scaled set of Autobots to fight Voyager Megs and company (Starscream, Fallen, Soundwave, etc).

    Insecticon is another likely pick up. HA figs are awesome, but alas I don't want to hurt my wallet by purchasing another set of movie characters I already have in other size classes.

    I also thought that was a leader fig before paying more attention. That thing packs a lot of awesome into that price point. I'll be getting one for MISB and one to open. That thing kinda makes up for getting hooks prime for the leader revision instead of buster prime.
