    Either way, it's still a voyager with a grey box on wheels. Having the original Siege Prime, i'm gonna skip this release altogether.

    His hands are grey instead of blue? Is it true?

    The funny thing is I bought Megatronia *before* I knew about that and I was bummed that's the direction they took with her.

    The grey hands look absolutely awful, and the posters trying to defend this decision are just trying to make excuses. And considering the fact that Prime is literally the flagship character of the entire damn franchise, I also find it utterly pathetic that Hasbro couldn't find a better solution for this problem beforehand. :mad: 

    More likely than not, the figure TFW2005 received was probably painted and modified. All indications point to the grey hand version being released.

    Yet he has blue hands on the back of the box and box-art...
    I consider this a pretty poor decision on the manufacturer's part.

    The entire situation is a big clusterfuck from Hasbro. They just can't seem to help themselves.

    We didn't receive it actually(I wish!), we just saw pictures of it when they were leaked on 4chan.

    As far as the blue/grey hand debate, the blue hands are from a production copy. I'll be very surprised if we see any grey hand/yellow eye copies at retail.

    You know. They could easily fix this issue if they... i don't know. Give him a retooling with new hands and Roller?

    If we get grey hands, then do what I did with Power of the Primes Optimus Prime, and remember the G1 cartoon two part episode \"The Return of Optimus Prime\" where he became all grey, by covering himself with indestructible metal to get the Matrix of Leadership from Rodimus Prime to stop the hate plague. This requires imagination and overcoming slight OCD for those who have it, such as myself, but it is better then grumbling about it.
    As for the eyes, yellow or blue, they both work for me!
    Yellow=G1 toy accurate
    Blue=G1 cartoon accurate

    So, they screwed up the color of the hands, the sides of the legs, and the combat deck drone so that the trailer could have a gray door? That seems like a misplacement of priorities.

    The G1 toy trailer is so much better than this one that they should’ve made the new Optimus compatible with it and reissue the G1 trailer with this release!

    I remember that launching Roller was pretty fun. And being able to close the trailer with the drone/fixer thing still sticking out the top.

    grey hands .....blue hands....green hands , who cares? we should just appreciate the fact that we got a mainline generations voyager prime with opening hands that can hold a matrix.
