Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron users, Turned Agent and Praxiusprime77 have notified us that YouTube toy reviewer, TonTon Reviews, has uploaded a brand new video review of Transformers Netflix War for Cybertron Voyager Class Optimus Prime!

This Optimus Prime is actually the Leader Class version of the character from Transformers Earthrise just minus his gun and trailer. To make up for this, the Netflix release of this mold comes with two battle masters, Enerax (who is a redeco of Siege Battlemaster Pteraxeadon) who is meant to resemble Primes Energon axe, and Sheeldron (who is a redeco of Earthrise Battlemaster Soundbarrier), who is wielded as a shield in all the images thus far.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



What do you think of this Optimus Prime? Are you getting him? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Honestly, all I want are the 2 Battlemasters from the Prime release (I already have ER Prime). I'll probably give Prime himself to one of my friends, unless I can get the Battlemasters cheap on eBay or something.

Prime is a no for me. I already have the Earthrise Leader, and Soundbarrier/Shieldron is the lamest of the 3 Earthrise battlemaster molds.

Well I plan on picking it up but I don't want the battle masters. So maybe we can make a deal.

Arrgh... I've been ninja'd. :(

Having spent a small fortune in improving my ER Optimus already, I would love these Battlemasters.

It looks better just from having both parts of the head the same color. Would have preferred dark blue windows like the G1 new years. Inner legs are way better but I think I like brighter reds/blues of the original. Will probably go for the netflix version in the end tho, just have to do somrthing with the windows.

Hey, if you want the Battlemasters I won’t need mine, I can dm you once Prime (eventually) shows up.

On second thought, I already have the Weapon Pack on preorder. So I find no use for these Battlemasters. :-?

So the Takara Tomy stock photos show Soundwave with a red visor...

Regardless of visor color the yellow door outline with orange/gold stripes still annoys me a lot more.

Netflix Optimus Prime isn't really doing it for me. I will still pick it up to get the exclusive Sheeldron and Enerax, but this Prime is not going to replace my Earthrise version. The reds and blues look more vibrant and appealing on the Earthrise version, as does the light blue as opposed to colorless clear plastic on the windows. I'm also not fond of the navy blue elbows and other connector joints of the Netflix version which are instead a much less garish dark gray on the Earthrise version. It's a shame, because there are aspects about the Netflix version I like much better, like not neglecting to paint the yellow square on the pelvis, keeping the inner calves blue, and the better contrasting lighter blue eyes for the face, but they don't outweigh the flaws in the end for me.

I'm hoping Soundwave's visor is red, but either way...
I do think it's odd that the outside of the cassette door is yellow compared to the other more golden areas... I definitely don't understand the thinking behind that design decision. Yeah the more I look at that, the more I don't like it. Imo it contrasts with his blue too much.
I'll still get him, but man, the landing gear on the bottoms of his forearms is so stupid... Especially when his forearms are hollow...
Also, with being packaged with 2 cassettes is he going to be $50?

$30 Voyager + $10 cassette 2-pack = $40

That's what I was hoping, I just wasn't going to be surprised if it was more.

Sorry for the foolish question but can we expect to see Nemesis Prime in Walmart stores? :VEHI:

Pick him up once you spot him tho. If he's anything like the last pack with UM and Rung, each store may get only one or two.

The thing that irks me about that first set though was even though it didn't shelf warm, it was put on clearance for $35 almost immediately after the first wave came and went, and now online retailers are selling it for that same low price. I wish I could have the hindsight to know if the same thing will happen with the Nemesis Prime box.

At the same time, many waited for Siege Skywarp and Greenlight to go on sale and well....., I don't think the savings they possibly could have had make up the $300-400 they would now need to spend to get those.

Yeah, I've rarely been one to wait. If I have, it's because of lack of funds. I didn't have the money to purchase basically any Titan at time of release until this year, thus getting Tryp & Predaking on sale was just a series of fortunate events.

I purchased Greenlight and got the BM's from the Skywarp set (from eBay) right away. I guess it is best to be glad I have them, then think I *wasted* $30 on Ultra Magnus by getting him the first time on sight, rather than the 2nd time at reduced price.
