Yeah, they're coming out. I'm pretty sure they're already out. You're not going to come across the same toys as others; just ask every PRiD figure besides Bumblebee.

Just remember - Prime RID Vehicon is actually better figure than the FE Vehicon.

I got both through BBTS, can't say anything for store shelves though.

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Both FE Voyager have been re-released, but be warned, they have quality control issues:

- Optimus Prime is missing the deco on its windows, leaving the opaque parts brown. It can be assumed the wrong paint mask or deco chart was used, namely that of the clear Shining Optimus Prime.
- Bulkhead can develop nasty stress marks in the shoulder joints.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Also on the chest/hood panels. The plastic is really thin where the hinge joins up. However, it can be remedied with a little heat.

I've seen the deluxe class at my local TRU, but have yet to see the voyager class. And from the QC issues going on with them, i think I'll pass on Bulkhead. I have the Takara Prime, so no worries there.

i recommend arcee its got the better head sculpt and paint than the second -also two blades trumps one and the weapons fit nicely on the side -the cannon one doesn't

yea i agree on the paint app and such. however, with the RID version i just added some pink in the right places, gave her face alittle more character,modified the body a bit, bought a second one and now i have 2 blades and a second gun i was able to modify to closely match the show.
but as for out of the box work the FE one is probably still the better mold for show accuracy and non-kibble
