That box could be so much smaller.


Can't wait to get him. I love the box aesthetic and character art. And he's just an all-round awesome figure.

This would be the 3rd voyager class prime since armada. I reminds me of Galaxy convoy a bit to much.

IMO,

THAT IS NOT DIFFERENT PACKAGING. THE SELLER PROBABLY OPENED HIM AND PUT HIM BACK IN WRONG.

He belongs roof up, this is packaged the wrong way.

No, it's not. You see the slits where his bubble package connects to in the box, it's a new package, and a brand new bubble package.

Well, maybe. I just never took into account that the previous Prime was might have a protoform in protoform packaging, so who knows?

My theory on this is that they want to keep the packaging the same size and shape for all the voyager class figures. They'll probably need that space to accommodate the wings on figures like Lugnut.

Exactly... That box could at least be downsized a bit. It'd be almost perfect for Leader class figs in vehicle mode to be put in one of those. But Voyager class? Way too small.

Movie Optimus Prime has actually had *3* iterations: The Target Exclusive with "Supermetal Finish", the standard voyager version, and "First Strike" G1-homage version.

Then there's Classics Prime, of course.

If both the Movie voyagers and the Classics voyager count, wouldn't this one be #5?

What is "Gravity-spin Conversion"? At first I was worried it was something like Fast Action Battlers, but the box indicates it's a "level 3" conversion, so does anyone know what Gravity-spin Conversion is? Is it something like the "Automorph technology"?

The gravity spin conversion is a feature when transforming him into robot mode. Pressing a tab of some sorts makes his legs detach and spin around into place.

HASBRO really pulled out all their tricks when designing this box. Really, I seen more excitement in the product on a box of bran flakes.

That sounds disappointing. I want to transform the whole thing myself. I don't want a "push to transform" button. :(

It's just one little thing. You still snap the waist in. In the area of self-transformation, it's no worse than Automorph technology. The Roll Out Prime, though, is a different story.

Alot of people would probably disagree with you on that one. I have been waiting for a transformer that transforms itself for quite some time. It would make stop motion movies much easier. :P
