The doors open! Neat! The smokestack shotguns continue to be awesome. The only thing I would've done differently would have been a ball & socket joint on the neck rather than just the rotation.

Well, there goes the part about "cars driving themselves", but I guess it makes for a better disguise. Looks ok, I guess.

For some reason I like this version more then the leader class version.

As much as I'm digging the Leader class, this looks really cool, too. The driver is a great idea - is he retractable or something?
I have to question the logic of the Autobot insignia on the grille, though. At least Deluxe Bumblebee has the good sense to hide his in vehicle mode.

What an ugly face... Still, I like this a lot better than the Leader Class version.

Weird. When I saw the unpainted protos, I liked this one and not the Leader Class.

Now that I've seen both in color (and pretty much finished), aside from the fact that the Voyager comes with PETER CULLEN...I must go with the Leader Class.

This one, now finalized, just doesn't do it for me.

Even more money saved. Whee!

Two big shotguns, and a driver... Love it. Is there any other american TF with a driver? The only one I can think of is Armada Sideways and I'm not sure he counts.

[color=red]The only think that bothers me is the paint job, I dunno why, but it detracts from the proto shots we saw. I hope thye paint the eys, cuase the head looks wrong with eyes that are the same colour as other parts of his head.

And as I said with the leader one, they could have at least chromed the grill...[/color]

Agreed. The paint clashes really badly with the grey plastic. It would have been better if it had all been painted or molded in a lighter color.....$5 says the driver ends up being Cullen.

love it the only thing i'm not digging is the face. Seems like he's going for a KISS look with blue eyeline makeup rather than haveing those grey grills near his mouth piece.

Looks much sleeker than the Leader version and at a $20 price point (assuming Voyagers will still be the $20 price point toy) definately worth getting.

As for the leader class one, well going to come down to features and posability since it seems to be a display piece now more than anything.

Duke of Luns- what are you on about? TFs have boasted fake or projected drivers since the word go- in the cartoon Hound could hologram one up, and Roadhandler and the other Micromasters had fake fellas that popped up out of their seats in the comic. It's hardly the end of an era when the era was never there to start with. Plus, driving around without a driver is a pretty good way for an alien infiltrator to get his cover blown in a hurry, doncha think?

Hasbro don't seem to use chrome much these days at all. I'm trying to think of the last time I saw any on a main-line toy. Maybe it's the cost, or maybe it's some mad new safety regulation concerning daffy kids chewing their figures.

And that's ignoring the pic of hoist (I think) DRIVING Prime in the cartoon.

EDIT: After looking up the leader, I'm torn. I like the Voyager Prime, it looks more poseable, or less block in the way of the knees. But The Leader Class Prime does have some neat features

I like him.

I'm gonna get a few, cause he's gonna see some paints when I do.

DO NOT WANT. Nice truck, but terrible-looking robot. Articulation doesn't look too good from the waist down, either. And the head is a serious failure.

For some reason, this looks more like a Deluxe Class rather than a Voyager Class. I'm only saying this based on the design of the hands. It's like nearly identical to hand design on the Protoform Optimus (also from the movie) but Protoform Optimus is smaller than Classic Voyager Optimus Prime. :-?

A better coat of paint would have made this a class-A figure.
