Our own Archatron has found a new auction for Transformers Revenge of The Fallen Voyager Optimus Prime on ebay.
This auction not only gives us a few good looks at the robot-mode but it also gives us our first clear look at the toy's box. The box-back reveals to us his bio which matches that of the Leader Class version in some spots.


From the moment Optimus Prime took earth as a new home for him and his people, he was rededicated to it's protection. Since that day he has dedicated all of his considerable will and power on rooting out the last few remaining Decepticons and destroying them. To that end, he has upgraded and refined his sensor suite, and trained with Ironhide in tracking the evil robots.

"sensor suite" read as: giant back kibble

That bio sounds stupid and how can the sell possibly mistransform that truck mode? :shock:


Thanks and I know the guy is a good seller, maybe not the best transformer of the toys but a good guy nonetheless :lol:

I wonder what the japanese signs on his back is translated...


Im pretty sure its chinese, Chaoslock... but thanks to Falkorich in another thread...

On the hood, the larger two means "Shanghai" (the city) and the smaller two means "General Army". So I am guessing the two pairs of characters actually go together and means "General Army, Shanghai Division".

In the back, the two means General (as in military rank).

"From the moment Optimus Prime took earth as a new home for him and his people, he was rededicated to it's protection."

I was really concerned that Hasbro had fallen down on the job when I saw the typo in Optimus' bio. Fortunately, the actual text on the back of the box is written correctly, so I am reassured. Just a posting error here.

(For those of you who are stumped, "it's" is a contraction. It is not the possessive form of the word. There should be no apostrophe in this context. See the University of Victoria link for details: http://web.uvic.ca/wguide/Pages/UsIts.html)

The bio is actually:

As the autobot leader, Optimus prime is uber leet. Don't mess with this guy, he'll kill you. Pew-pew.

Yeah, he's been there in every single release of this mold since he first came out in 2007 for the Original Movie line.

He disappears when you open the door, courtesy of a little spring.

This mold is not new. Its the voyager mold with a slightly darker paint job. Everything else seems to be the same.

That would be a marked improvement. What a terrible bio they gave him.

Considering I just picked up a practically new (no box, no gun) Leader Class Movie Prime in a thrift store for $3.99, I don't think any minor paint apps. are going to entice me to buy another one any time soon. I'm good till TF3.

Is there any difference in the transformation with the Voyager Prime from the first movie?
Re: ROTF Voyager Optimus Prime Bio and box (887508)

Everything I've heard points to there being no difference in the transformation and nothing about the auction pics. looked any different to me. I had my First Strike Prime out today to show my nephew and to give him size comparisons with the Leader and Legends Prime next to it, so Voyager Prime was fresh in my mind. My nephew had the same issue transforming the back part as the guy doing the auction pics. so the same spot was sticking up as on the auction.
I'd say it's just a simple, typical Hasbro re-paint.

Already got the Target exclusive from the first movie so i think im gonna pass. Until its $10 on clearance then yeah i might get it. I feared this would happen for these movies. Well at least the people who missed out on this mold have a 2nd chance to get it.
