    The TFP Dark Energon Voyagers Optimus Prime and Megatron have been officially released in the Philippines last Saturday, December 29, 2012. I got the Optimus, here are some pics I took:

    Thanks for the photos :D  I really hope the TRU stores in the U.S. actually carry these (as rumored).

    Also, I think you meant December in your post. :)

    Thanks, already corrected. :) 


    Not too fond of that shade of blue either, same with the Dark Energon Bumblebee. What's more off-putting to me though is the huge Autobot sigil on the hood in truck mode. I thought they were Robots in Disguise? Hehe. :) 

    Also, the sword is too small, more apropos for Cyberverse commander Optimus, not that it would fit the holes though.

    It would have been awesome if the shade of blue they use was the one on the box art, complete with battle damage:

    I think that color scheme actually works well! Too bad the Megatron doesn't look anything like the promo colors (looks much much worse)

    I've had it for almost a week the blue parts have not grown on me.

    If this gets a black redeco with some purple crystal parts, I'm sure to get that.

    Ew. That blue looks very unappealing.

    Really? I actually kinda like those colors. And the head mold. Probably not enough to buy it though.

    After seeing it in person, I was kinda turned off by the shade of blue used, the same feeling I had upon transforming DE Bumblebee. However, I've grown fond of the two figures after some time. The big Autobot logo on DE OP's hood in truck mode is still an eyesore to me though...

    Wonderful pics, but I just can't get behind that color scheme...all of them. :lol 

    I love Optimus..most of them anyway, but this one...pretty sure I'll pass.....maybe if he's a really good price at TRU. Maybe.

    this looks nothing like the promo pictures. He was Grey, not blue. If it's left in the box it looks nice the way the colors mesh from the figure to the packaging. The head sculpt is nice as well.

    Ugly colors, mediocre mold and Mouth Face make this an EASY Pass.

    I picked the Dark Energon series up from BBTS. Only six in the series. I like the back story, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Wheeljack take on Dark Energon to counter the Decepticon threat. At least Dark Energon Starscream appeared in the show besides Megatron. Dark Energon's Knockout's green takes a bit of getting used to though. I do agree though, the Dark Energon series isn't for everyone.

    i think it looks better in this picture.

    it doesn't look like optimus prime to me. but it does look like it could be a neat, "random character" or something. but i probably wouldn't buy one, unless it was the only way i can get the "not galvatron" megatron :lol

    That shade of purple on the box art is... marvelous!
