    They omitted the STELLAR HFTD Optimus Prime, which was basically a less frustrating version of the ROTF Leader WITH a Matrix.

    Why'd they use the Titanium Series figurine for 2007 instead of the 2007 Voyager?

    I wonder if they could have instead found a way to use the wheel and leg kibble and make a foot out of that instead of manufacturing one.

    You'd think it was obvious which figures to use, but Hasbro seem to be very half-arsed when it comes to the Movies.

    I still hate the paint job on that new voyager, which is a shame because it looks like a great mould. But for some reason they've wasted silver in places it doesn't need to be, and then they use blue on the colllar (which should be silver) while leaving the thigh/hip armour unpainted (which should be blue). Not to mention the non-flame chest and the orange sword again. And who knows what they were thinking when they decided to paint the shield in the same blue as his eyes!

    They wouldn't mess around with Darth Vader's or Captain Americas colours and details so it baffles me why they do it all the time with Transformers.

    So, they used a Titanium for 2007 and the 2007 mold for 2009? Funny. Should have been the HFTD one.

    He's got far less kibble then I thought he would, particularly around the legs. And it looks like the tops of the arms become the hood. Not too shabby.

    Its isnt obvious why they dont use the hftd mold it would be too shamefull for the actual team of designers admitting that 7 year mold is more advanced that a 2017 mold with all the actual tecnology they got

    So apparently Titanium and the first Voyager are far more important than all three Leader Classes (DOTM and ROTF are basically the same), the Battle Blades Voyager, and the DOTM Ultimate? Really?

    They wouldn't of shown the leader or ultimate figures cause they are only showing the evolution of the voyagers, I assume they didn't show the Battle Blades because it was not released under one of the five movie banners but under the Hunt for the Decepticons.

    But in that case, does Titanium even count?

    I have no idea, I wouldn't but this is Hasbro logic we're talking about here.

    Amazing how much this one looks better versus the Leader class ones from the previous line. But what's with the googly eyes?

    Truth.
    The HftD voyager was the epitome of awesomeness, being a downsized leader-class figure with the added Matrix. Man, that figure was pure win.
    This new one doesn't interest me in the least. The design is weird, it has way too much kibble and the colors are uninteresting.
    Good thing we have the HftD and Evasion molds to turn to.

    Kinda forgot HFTD Voyager. I still can\'t figure out why they even released the 2 DOTM voyager variants since the mold looks nothing like what we\'ve seen on-screen.
