Seibertron.com is proud to present three more Dark of the Moon galleries for your enjoyment. This time, we have some of the more controversial Voyagers, as opposed to last weeks galleries of some well-received figures.

First, Voyager class Ironhide is given the Seibertron.com treatment. Many question the necessity of this mold after previous versions and in light of the upcoming Leader version.

Next up, we get a gallery of Voyager Megatron, one of the first Dark of the Moon toys leaked. Many fans disagreed with Megatron's small size, hooded visage, or finally, Earth Mode. We present a gallery so you can make up your mind.

Finally, Voyager Optimus Prime finishes this set of galleries. Fans have been highly critical of this incarnation of the iconic hero, bemoaning the lack of detail, simplistic transformation, and chunky MechTech rifle.

Megatron looks interesting in this incarnation. Although I think his head looks weird. Maybe it's the angle.

Megatron is the winner of the bunch IMO. Ironhide's long legs ruin him for me.

I may wait for a Leader Megatron, I don't want to over pay like I did with 2007 Brawl and ROTF Starscream. Ironhide looks good, if a little tall (ironic considering the size complaints about this line).

Megatron hands down is the winner!

Ironhide and Prime is pretty much junk in my book, but then again Megatron, Shockwave and Skyhammer are the real winners for the voyager class figures. Dont get me started on the Deluxes!!!

Going to have to whip the Black Citadel paints out if I end up getting Megatron. Dull gray plastic all over a body like that, it's just criminal.

I have enough GMC trucks.

And... I might just end up getting Takara's Voyager Prime with the heart trailer locker.

i've been hating Voyager Prime since I first saw him. Why is it that I couldn't resist picking him up when I saw him? I'm such a OP whore.

I picked up all the voyagers already.
All I can say is, if you got the HFTD battle blades prime ... DONT GET THE PRIME VOYAGER ... Hes a piece of crap (interesting transformation, but just overall disproportionate and not as fun as the battle blades IMO)

Megatron is AWESOME. That is honestly one of the best megatrons we're going to get. His robot mode looks like a very very nice movie version of the G1 counterpart, as well as just looking like a badass. Don't let pics deceive you. A+++ figure.

Ironhide is good as well. Admittedly, the legs are a big weird, BUT they have a double joint so you can collapse them so he becomes more Ironhide like. He's very nice, but unless you're a BIGG ironhide fan, Idk if I can Strongly recommend him.

Shockwave is ... well.. SHOCKWAVEE. The robot mode is outstanding. The paint, light piping, and just .. wow. Amazing robot mode ... the vehicle ... is ... well.. Hard to explain.. I like it and its the most plausible "cybertronian vehicle" we've gotten because the transformation is somewhat in depth, but it kinda reminds me of a vacuum for some reason.. idk.


SO YAH. Megatron, and Shockwave are a MUST HAVE out of the voyagers.

He's not that bad to be honest. True, he's not a gem, but not a piece of junk either. Of course, I know some fans will get the mold anyway, just for the Trailer the Japanese version has.

This might be the first movie OP I get, though I'm heavily considering the Takara version, mainly for the weapon since the trailer is basically just a box that opens — not even a roller or turret/claw thingy :-(
However, for some reason I like the huge fuel tanks on the Hasbro version which are missing on the Takara version. I suppose if I hold out there will be repaints galore and I'll get the Takara gun as a Hasbro option at a cheaper rate… or not.

Megatron will look decent with a different head (I hate "battle-damage"). I wonder if Fallback's will fit?
:CON:

God help me I don't hate the Voyager Prime mold. I fully expected too, but it's pretty fun. The solar panels are rad. The robot proportions are suitably heroic and ballsy. The vehicle doesn't peg together as well as it should, especially in front, but it's fun.

I have this Prime - he's actually kind of charming in his robot mode,minus the RIDICULOUS gun. And those things on his back, those are completely wrong, especially when he's in truck mode. The ROBOT mode has the charm. The TRUCK IS GARBAGE. Even if it weren't for the inflated gas tanks that have no reason to be there, the whole thing barely holds together.

Get this if you plan to display him along other robot modes, but he's no fun to transform.

I'll have to get Megatron. But I hope they end up making a leader. And I wouldn't mind his right eye being smaller.

He's very not bad. I'm actually very happy with him. He's no Rotf Prime, but no doubt cool in its own way.

It's almost like I can't get into a new line without picking up Optimus first.

Megatron is the only one of these three I wanted, so I was very happy to find him yesterday morning. I love that his Mechtech weapon actually fits his body, and blends into his altmode. I also love the hidden hinge he has in truck mode.

I like Megatron (I like the concept of Megatron as a semi truck to rival Optimus), but I won't get this version.

I know there are no announced plans for a Leader-sized verson of DOTM Megatron, and I'll be disappointed if one is never released, but I'm not going to settle for Voyager Megatron no matter what.

Ironhide: I actually prefer this smaller version of Voyager Ironhide. I always thought the previous Voyager Ironhide figure was too big to really fit in with the rest of the figures, but the Deluxe mold is way too small.

So, just like with DOTM Barricade, in this case, I think smaller is better. I will definately be buying DOTM Ironhide.

As always, thanks for the pics, Ryan!

Wow, killer pics as always . . . must say I TOTALLY dig Megatron, despite the small size and lack of paint detail. Picked him up yesterday and couldn't be more impressed as it's just a very well-done concept.

Never liked any of the pics of Prime, but actually seriously considered dropping him in the cart once I had an up-close look. Decided to wait for the ultimate version that will hopefully be in scale w/ voyager Megs.

Quite impressed w/ Ironhide as well, but decided to pass. I've got the first version of movie Ironhide and am probably holding out for the leader class DOTM version. Anyone have a convincing argument for adding this one to the collection?

They all look fairly decent. I wont be picking up any OP's this movie, though. ROTF Leader Class Prime can't be beat, and I have two of them, lol. I'm happy Meg's got some nicer looking arms this time around. I'll be waiting for a Leader Class though. Anyone else have a hard time buying new versions of figures you're already happy with? It's almost like you're paying more for a new box than for a drastically altered figure. I can't see anyone buying these strictly for the mech-tech gimmick.

Just bought Megatron today and I must say...I really dig the alt mode and especially the robot mode.The cape looks amazing and it hides the ugly huge eye >.<...one complaint though...The alt mode is freaking small @_@.The alt mode is literally scout class vehicle size.
