    This came up in another thread awhile ago, but I'm just curious now that the FE's voyagers are finally coming back out. Those of you that picked up a prid version of voyager optimus and bulkhead, but now are finally getting the FE's, what do you intend to do with them?

    I was thinking a custom nemesis and perhaps ironhide. I like the prid molds, but the FE's are pretty much the definitive versions so I'm going with those for my main cast.

    So those of you that own the prid voyagers, but now are getting the FE voyagers, what do you intend to do with prid?

    don't think the Difference between FE & PRID Optimus is enough to warrant a rebuy (although yes FE is better) and I got a Takara FE Bulkhead so I'm golden there.

    I'm not buying the FE versions of Optimus Prime or Bulkhead, so I'm not repurposing their PRID versions.

    Even though the FEs are better?


    My Bulkhead will be Classics BH, while Optimus will be.... Optimus.

    I'm leaning this way myself. I like the Prime line but not enough to rebuy figs.

    Now if this was a Classics design, then it would be a done deal.

    I never opened my RID Prime and Bulkhead, was holding out for reasonable FE versions. I plan on opening my FE editions and keeping the RID ones MISB now.

    I'm just going to pretend that FE Prime and Bulkhead are the super mode versions of TFP Prime and Bulkhead.

    The FE might be better, but I like the PRID more.

    The PRiD's have their own unique charm to be honest, plus I like how he scales with Megatron myself.

    Bulky as Brawn. The GDO version just doesn't cut it.

    Probably going to simply display mainline Optimus in truck mode, since it has the better of the two, while FE Optimus is displayed in bot mode. Though I do currently display both Starscreams in bot mode.

    Mind you, I have them in my respective Optimus & Starscream shelves and not in any Prime display- which I don't have anymore.

    I'm selling the PRID Optimus and Bulkhead (both customized with show-accurate paint) and then I'll buy the FE Optimus and Bulkhead.

    FE will be in my Optimus Prime shelf and RID will go in my TFP one. I'll finally cave in buying RID Prime.

    Scale means lot.

    This right here! Still hoping to find FE Prime and Bulkhead, but I will never get their PRiD counterparts. Even if it means that TFP Prime and Bulkhead get no representation on my shelf.
