    I do. A lot. It drives me crazy when they skimp on such a simple paint app that makes such a huge difference in appearance.

    I was saving the new pics, & the one of Starscream reads "[noparse]prime-voyagers-11_1318645717.jpg[/noparse]". Is that Deluxe Starscream, or the voyager? The card says "First Edition", so I have to assume it's the Deluxe, & someone was lazy when naming the files.

    It's the deluxe. As of yet, the voyager is known to only be in the grey prototype stage. Plus, the voyager comes with a huge light-up cannon thing.

    Well, it's the Deluxe, but the Deluxe is meant to be quite tall, so you can't blame them that much

    Hey if you do get that set and would actually trash the humans, I'll buy em off u instead. I'm planning on getting the voyager versions (hoping Megatron gets a voyager that is), so I won't need the bots but I kind of like the looks of the human figures.

    Anyway can't wait to see what else comes out of this line, it's looking great so far.

    Another fairly general way of distinguishing the Voyager Starscream is that it is spikier than the deluxe, at least in altmode.

    As cool as the Bumblebee and Arcee set is... The Cuponk set is 100x cooler. I am just blown away by the high quality. I am dead serious. Amazing box, Gorgeous artwork, very funny, and awesome sound samples in each cup. Cheerleaders chanting Decpticons? Yeah, that kind of awesome.

    I wrote a quick review in the Review section.

    Yeah, by process of elimination I'd say the arms would have to be the truck nose; I think that's the engine cover that wraps around the inside and underside of his forearms, yet I only see part of the line where it should split on the altmode front mudguards. So maybe the arms somehow fit inside the shoulders/wheel arches?

    Speaking of which, I definately think this is a remarkable figure, however the shoulder wheels orientate; my eyes were drawn to it when it seemed one of the arms was popped out of the shoulder in one of the photos here. It wouldn't have been the first mistransformation we've seen in this sort of preview so I thought it was good to ask. ;)  Also has he gained a trailer hitch since SDCC or does that go somehwere I can't see in these photos?

    Patiently waiting for my preorder of Voyager Prime... but still slightly wishing the days away til it's released ;)  Someone buy the TF Prime toy designers a beer, they've done an absolutely awesome job on these.

    I was briefly wondering about the 5th Wheel, & originally had a sentence about it, but no, when I went to save the SDCC pics, they had it too (& it was black even then). You can see it folded onto the inside of the left leg in a few pics. It's just mistransformed, as usual.

    That Voyager Prime looks like it is painted differently
    since SDCC. The windows are more shiny gray than dull
    white. Is this just for NYCC display purposes or did they
    actually make the show accurate change? It looks stunning.
    Best voyager yet.

    I think they've done that before: showing toys with hand painted details
