Courtesy of RobotKingdom's Facebook page, they have added new images of the upcoming Platinum Edition Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Evasion Mode Optimus Prime with Voyager Class Grimlock. This set is a Toys R Us exclusive and will also be released in Asia. Both figures feature several differences from the regular retail versions of Grimlock and Evasion Mode Optimus Prime. Most notably, this version of Evasion Mode Optimus Prime has chrome and the face shield and Grimlock also has chrome, much like his Leader Class counterpart.

That was Megatron's shotgun in the DotM Movie, remember? Optimus used it against Sentinel Prime. And yes, the DotM Megatron can wield it with the tabs.

Chrome is great and all but why on Optimus' knee things? They have always looked awesome to me on his, now, old design but being this bright silver just looks awkward. They shoulda taken that chrome and put it on his thighs, to complete the look with his already-chromed crotch!

Ugh...

Was hoping for Platinum Edition but then we yet again get the chrome in all the wrong places. :BANG_HEAD: The tolerances on Optimus are so tight with the arm transformation that you could never transform him if you wanted to keep the chrome looking good. I was just hoping for an even more accurate G1 deco with a face shield and the arms/feet a different color. This is ridiculous!! :shock:

~reluctantyouth~ :BOT:

I may look for an Optimus faceplate head to substitute on my regular Evasion Mode Prime. I'm wondering if my Transformers Prime FE Optimus Prime head will fit on Evasion Prime body? :-? Anybody else contemplating a head change?

I read an interview with the Hasbro design team where they claimed that they had come up with chrome that no longer flaked. From what I've heard though, swing and a miss.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron.com user Fires_Of_Inferno we get to look at a new Baltmatrix video review, and this time, it's Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager class Galvatron! This appears to be, for now, a new take on the characters, whose alt-mode is a flat-nosed silver Freightliner Argosy - check it out below.

Galvatron's alt mode is sweet. Shame that he's just a shellformer. :( When you look at the bot mode (from the front), there are no elements of the alt mode visible.

That seems to be the 'thing' with this line. No altmode parts visible in the robot mode.

It's awful.

LOL i just realized grimlock has dog ears, grimlock good little puppy. But anyway who decides where the chrome goes on these guys? the shoulders on prime look stupid & the hands are just a very bad idea cause its going to flake off from the gun being inserted repeatedly. The chrome does make these look better but still doesnt justify the price, id still rather just wait for a clearance to pick up prime & paint him my self. Thats if these ever show in my area, stopped by a few stores today to kill time & look for a charger for my phone & no one had any AoE stuff not eve a place for them. The walmarts are the only stores that have anything but its only leaders & the quick change guys. It pisses me off that the store still dont stock things cause it means ill never see any generations but im also glad cause hasbro wont be making any money in this area. Also didnt find the charger i need either

So I am the only one who notices his giant alt mode backpack? And I have seen shots of the figure from the front and those alt mode panels are very visible.

They mean in the robot mode's design are there no vehicle parts visible. Little-to-nothing from the truck actually integrates into his body in robot mode, resulting in the outlandish backpack of truck kibble. The backpack isn't part of his robot mode body design, hence all the talk of the truck parts not being part of his robot mode body.

That Galvatron is just hot garbage in bot mode. :SICK: I hope Takara can salvage this hot mess and give more impressive paint apps or a G1 version. The alt-mode I think is far more impressive and though it is a shell-former kinda it all seems to collapse quite nicely IMO. :VEHI:

That backpack really is nothing to fuss about. I'd rather have all the kibble on the back allowing the robot to be as screen accurate as possible over having it anywhere else. Galvatron appears to have a pretty well executed design. The only thing I'm a little bothered with is where the knees bend. Other than that though, I'm really looking forward to him. However, I may wait till Botcon reveals to see if there is a more attractive deco being released. I can see this figure having several different versions down the line or being packed with something good.

That doesn't seem to be the "thing" with Evasion Mode OP, or Crosshairs, or Drift, or BB, or Hound, or any of the Dinobots. It's really just Galvatron and the Leader-class OPs.

Yes, this is a shellformer, but it's like the best shellformer ever. And the complaints about no kibble? really?

The robot mode seems a little action figurey but then again, isn't that the point?

I don't see any reason why this can't be considered a decent toy.

I can't speak for anyone else but the big concern for me is how little each mode actually transforms into the other. What we have is not quite an action figure, not quite a Transformer, and not quite the sum of its parts.

Prime RID Deluxe Vehicon is a fine example of how a figure can have a coherent robot mode design with little-to-no traces of altmode elements or kibble in it anywhere and still transform excellently into a just as coherent altmode design.

Leader OP and Voyager Galvatron? No so much.

That chrome looks really nice. Shame about the dull grey on the things and stuff, but nothing a bit of paint won't fix.

Also, for all this talk about how Hasbro needs to "aim for collectors" if you're having that much trouble with the chrome flaking you're obviously being much too rough with it.

After the Voyager Galvatron review, here's a very quick look at the other Voyager figure from the Transformers: Age of Extinction first wave, courtesy of YouTube reviewer Peaugh's Twitter feed: Autobot Hound! Check out the robot mode in the images below, and the actually amazingly combining and storing weapons.

Defiantely my favourite voyager of this lot so far. I love weapon storage in robot mode (like generations drift). This is a pretty kickass figure.

And it wasn't long until we got a video review for Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager class Autobot Hound too, once again from YouTube reviewer Baltmatrix, and thanks to Seibertron.com user craggy for the pointer! Check out the video embedded below, the images we posted earlier, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

Great to see that Hound is really good. I've been looking forward to getting him more than the other voyagers. All of those weapons are an absolute plus and it doesn't look like they take away from the size of the figure either. Hopefully I can see some comparison images for height soon.

I'll be all over that Bulkhead Hound when I see it in shops. I like it so much I'm tempted to order online. The alt mode is decent, the transformation is pretty nice (the best I've seen from AOE yet, and nicer than a lot of Generations too) and the bot mode is equal parts chunky and funky. The pics of the weapons sold me on buying the thing, even if it was poop, just for the guns, but seeing the bot in more detail has me really excited for him. Not too keen on the rubber arms or head, hopefully they'll hold up, or if they don't maybe we can get replacements from somewhere (or maybe something to make him a different character? I'd love a Bulkhead head) but the rest of the toy is golden.

Haven't been too excited about this movie line apart from the Dinos and a few of the old repaints, but this is one I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for. Possibly best of the line?

So for anyone who has Deluxe Crosshairs, where THE HELL are his rubber flaps meant to go in car mode? The instructions suggest that they should go behind his body but they get smooshed when you try to fold his shoulders in.

I have to agree, that is an ingenious simplified transformation. Virtually no kibble in either mode (though you can see the legs in vehicle mode), the chest is amazing, SO MANY WEAPONS, the aesthetics would make it fit in with Generations, potentially, it.. works. For me, at least. :D

I'm digging that Hound. A good example of how a transformation can be simple but good at the same time. Excellent array of weapons too. Shame about the Duck Dynasty head, but what you gonna do? I already ordered this guy from HTS.

I just got Crosshairs, Slug and Scorn in the mail (ordered them Sunday night, Amazon is VERY quick when you live in L.A.). Crosshairs has a frustrating transformation due to his stupid rubber flaps but it's nice that he comes with three guns and appropriate stowing spaces, his car mode is very pretty, and his robot mode is decent enough.

Slug and Scorn are both great. I dig that the medieval appearance on their robot modes makes them look distinctive and different, but not obnoxiously so. Their dino modes are great too, very fearsome and organic.

I may also wait for Takara's version of Galvatron, if there will be one. Even if I buy it, I'll probably keep it in truck mode. The robot mode doesn't impress me, but that truck mode is boss.

what he said who cares if there shellformers or not as long they look good in both modes that's what we want that's what we got bots that are shellformers look good in both modes isn't that point begin with shellformers or not
