    From iGear Toys' Voyager-scaled MP-01 KO, Faith Leader, back in 2011. First releases included an extra ion blaster with a 5mm peg.

    It's held on by two metal pins. Heat the plastic up and try to pry it open. be careful not to break it!

    Nice. Just pop the head apart and paint the eyes for better visibility - either a lighter blue or a nice vibrant toy-based yellow - and he'll be nearly perfect.

    I swapped the Siege head onto him. Flash kinda washes it out, but that silver paint around the eyes is there and it helps make them a lot more visible.

    That works too. I didn't have that option because I'd turned Siege into Drone Scourge. I did try swapping ER and GUOP, but the GU head was a little too tight, both on the neck and in the transformation hole.

    Still wish he'd been made with decent sized trailer, I'd even go in at a comaander class price.

    Was just thinking that myself, with Hasbro giving us Rodimus at that price point. Could happen.

    I swear I must be the only person who is satisfied with the trailer.. I've never owned an Optimus with one so I'm pretty happy to have it regardless. If the ToyHax labels weren't out of stock I'd order a set. My only real complaint about this Optimus is that I can barely see his freaking eyes unless he's outside.

    Awesome analysis for both figures. But I'm really curious if there's a smokestack upgrade for ER Prime. If Seige has one...

    Siege Prime doesn’t hold a candle to this release.

    I heard ER has more QC issues, at least in the first batches, but I agree ir is closer to a Masterpiece in design and engineering. Leader class engineering for a voyager
