"$25.00" That's a typo, right? I'm sure they meant to say "$45.00"

Perhaps not, but $26 each is a good deal, assuming they're going to cost more at regular retail.

Thats a great deal. AlthoughI preffer the voyager Grimlock. With prices like that for eladers, I wonder if the voyagers will be even cheaper :-?

And can anyone tell me how this optimus differs from the first edition optimus that came out before. They look the same

Ok, so we now know that they both change in 18 steps, making Scourge still the most complex figure with 19 steps and he is simply a deluxe. This lets us know that the bigger the figure does not add to the complexity this time as well (too bad). Does anyone know how many steps are involved with the voyager transformations?


Edit

The voyager classes also change in 18 steps. So Scourge is officially the most complex figure documented so far. Too bad.

Although I will say taht I find it cool that the grimlocks have entirely different transformations. Do you guys preffer the tail being used as his legs or as a weapon?

And which version do you preffer overall?

Grrrrr...Curse you Amazon!!!!!!! :-x

I was soooo going to avoid ordering any AOE figures. [-( I bet Amazon has ordered so many of these that it makes sense to offer them discounted. I ordered to avoid a price increase. I had a $10.00 credit on one of my cards so with Prime and without tax (lovely living in Illinois for that)my total was $41.15. I ordered both Prime and Grimlock. I know the chrome will wear for sure. These just might stay in the box until I'm really really bored next winter. I cannot pass up a good deal when there is one. I do wonder though why the First Edition AOE Prime is still $59.99 :-?

do a quick search for a photo of the first edition.. then put it side by side with the photo in this story.. and bam.. you'll immediately see the differences.

Thanks! I am actually kind of torn as to which one I like better. For the main body sculpt, its obvious that the first edition is superior, just look at his shoulders. But that backpack is HUGE and its a bit better in the leader version. I am actually not that big a fan of either of these. It doesnt seem like they are trying to outdo themselves this time around (unlike with ROTF)

Betcha the Leader Amazon prices were a fawk-up and all the orders will be cancelled. Still a bit less cruel than the 50$ MP-10 mishap a good while back.

BTW, for the newcomers Voyager Grimlock is WAY superior than the leader. All the proportions are just right. So the dino dont look like Longcat and the robot is actually intimidating.
Also, get the Voyager Optimus Prime. It's the G1 truck that change into Movie Prime!

Now guys, please just stop complaining about the simple toys. It's becoming redundant. So far, the deluxes look promising and THE VOYAGERS ARE THE TOYS TO GET FOR US ADULTS.

Scourge? There's no Scourge in this line.

That Optimus Prime either was rushed being transformed, or the photographers just don't know how to transform something into vehicle mode. Prime's step by the door is not snapped into place.
