Fellow Seibertronian Houstonian Prime found the new Voyager Optimus Prime from the Transformers: the Last Knight toyline at Target earlier today and took a great series of pictures to show us this toy at every possible angle. From the first glimpse at this toy, we all wondered exactly where all the truck parts went for it to look so clean in robot mode. these images give us a good idea of where the truck parts go and where they can still be found and what is visible at what angle. He also shows us the figure with other autobots from the movie lines and has a comparison shot with the previous Voyager Movie Prime from Age of Extinction. You can read below his thoughts on the figure as well. Let us know if you will be picking this toy up at the full $30 USD price!


Houstonian Prime wrote:Overall this is an awesome figure. It is extremely well crafted, with plenty of articulation points. Paint applications are phenomenal. The metallic blue and silver paint really shines bright. Backpack isnt overly bulky. Slot in back for sword storage is nice. I highly recommend this figure to any collector.

My only gripe would be the paint work on his face. Otherwise, that thing looks awesome!

Maybe I will pick him up at some point

Oh and on the $25 vs. $30 US dollars, a sighting was just reported in Texas where the voyagers were $24.99 at a Target

Man, that thing scales perfectly with the AOE figures! I was just going to get the deluxe Bumblebee (the new one, not the AOE repaint), but I may have to get this one too.

Few more scale comparisons...

As I feared, Voyager Prime's sculpting is great, but the choice of paint and plastic is atrocious. Should have dropped the dark gray plastic for more silver plastic and used a whole lot more silver paint on the head. I'll wait for a repaint.

Oof, those hip joints of his are pretty high up. It makes the thighs look like they connect to the lower body right at the waistline rather than right below the waistline like they ought to.

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has been able to review one of the Premier Edition Transformers: The Last Knight figures, deluxe class Berserker - but doesn't seem to enjoy the cousin of Dark of the Moon Crankcase all that much. Check it out below!

Ah yes, my first Last Knight figure and it's, ok. Berserker is a cool looking robot, with a sleek SUV vehicle mode, and a transformation that's a fiddly mess that's well north of frustrating. With time it can be manageable but I would recommend buying another of the Premier Edition figures first.

Argos and Sainsbury's always have a Half Price sale around November, Very have sale often too as does TRU & The Entertainer.

So as much as I like the look of Megs - I don't think I have a desperate need to pay a premium for any Movie toys - they shouldn't be as rare to get this time since they have not done something idiotic and made the whole line a TRU exclusive this time.

One-step are ALWAYS reduced to £5.00 so I just have to be patient with those. I may have to put paying about £12.00 for them (which is what is typical for a sale Price for a Titans Return Deluxe - I expect Voyagers will be mainly in eBay / TRU and a few other online places - I can only see medium sized Supermarkets getting them if they come in a card display.

I'm happy to be patient as Wave 1 is pretty repaint heavy (especially the Legions and Deluxes) One step are hardly essential buys - But I'm not going to pay £8.00 for a legion repaint so - I'll be ignoring them until they are something like £4 or £5 and even then I'll likely ignore the Bee & Grimlock repaint entirely until they go even lower in price.

I barely own any AOE toys at all I just bought the ones that interested me - I don't even have the Dinobots for example (in normal colour or any of the repaints) The only reason I didn't get the dinobots was I couldn't find them. They show up a lot on eBay though - but to be honest I'm tempted to leave them for Carbootsale finds maybe buy a cheap Platinum gift set and collect the new ones in the muted colours - I know some people will despise the blandness of the sea of grey - but I kinda like the consistency of it.

I will likely still get the Wei Jiang over-size ones - but not until I'm certain I can get a matched set of most of them.

I wouldn't say that that Beserker was complicated, I would call it a lazy design. I know that the movie robot style doesn't lend itself to the smooth panels of most vehicles but this seems to be a glorified shellformer.

Yeah, um, Beserker doesn't look as good or as fun as I had hoped and thought. Might pass on him to get voyager Prime

It looks like it doesn't transform, like an Action Master. :twisted:

I need some oil too - shame it's a USA only offer.

Looks like his alternate form is an oil canister or something like it going by his kibble.

Not sure if it Transforms or not but I don't care enough to try and get this guy myself although he looks cool enough.

I really wish I was at least a little bit adept at photoshop. If I was I could show Unicron reformatting Va'al into Va'alvatron.
