Voyager Class Transformer Toys in Packaging

The Arker has posted a bunch of new pictures for Transformers Voyager class toys for some returning characters from the first movie. Ironhide returns with an even bigger gun, Bumblebee gains a passenger in form of Sam Witwicky action figure, and Starscream and Optimus Prime gets some modifications, sadly Starscream remains ugly.

Based on the pictures, it appears our returning favorites will remains very close to how they where in the first movie while the toys have been upgraded just a touch in the detail and gimmick department to make buying them all over again very tempting.

  1. Hmm, is that Bumblebee a voyager?
    The transformation and such seem quite different from the deluxes. Or maybe its just my eyes.

    Anyhow, these toys look very very tempting .. luckily i have set aside some $$ for the TF2 toys.

    If i have anything left over after picking up the new characters, i might get some of the returning characters too.

    For me, he's still in his good old jet mode.

  4. One disappointment is ..

    Although the new leader Prime is pure awesomeness, the voyager seems relatively unchanged from the old one.

  6. HEY look closer at Bumblebee's box!! Its Megs is in his tank mode....Look closely at his legs it has those Tank wheel thingys....And is and....ohhh me getin hypep up i think megs meybe cumin back after all

  7. ohhh and 1 more thing....look at Starscream...he's juz lyk the ALliance comic said he would be.....with those starnge sybols and signs......but this toy dosen't do justice to starscream he deserved something much better

  8. OK, Bumblebee is completely new. It's not totally accurate but it's definitely something I wanna get. I like the re-dos of the other ones too. More for my shopping list! I'm totally saving up lots for this man!

  9. So, what is that painted on Ironhide's front door?? What do you supposed that stands for?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yeah that is def Megatron in the background....Good eye dude!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yay for Megatron returning!

    Good things:
    Ironhide: "Just kidding. I just wanted to show them my NEW, BIG cannon!" Taking out Sam's parents is no longer "an option", but a reality. Maybe that weird symbol on Ironhide is for when the Autobots team up with the military?

    Starscream's F-22 mode looks more like an actual F-22 than the previous toy. His hands-guns look awesome.

    Optimus looks way more poseable and WAY better.

    Bumblebee is a voyager!

    Bad things:
    Starscream is still not as cool as his CGI model.

    Might have to pick one of these up.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The way Starscream is standing on the box art makes his legs look very short, seriously, Hasbro needs to put better pics on the backs of these things.

    I don't think that Bumblebee is a Voyager. He is still a deluxe. As you can see, Ironhide's box is different than Bumblebee's. Bumblebee is in a "special" scene capture packaging like how Longarm was in with Mikaela in it. The packaging is totally different.

    I highly think that Bumblee stays a deluxe and that there is a normal deluxe packaging as well as this movie scene capture packaging.

    However, I am fully agreeable that he now has a different mold as well as a different transformation.

    Hm, so they would just made two diferent deluxe sized BBB, just to make one of them able to transport Sam?

  15. And what about the text on the back of starscreams box? "When the time is right, bringing Megatron back"? I mean, why Starscream? He would never try to bring him back. Or is the "The Fallen" such an big enemy, that he has to... f** its going to be awesome^^

  16. Avid Singapore Fan1/24/2009 11:46 AM

    Just a suggestion.

    Or maybe they don't even have the normal deluxe packaging. Just this one right here, the one that can actually accomodate Sam.

    But still thinking it's a deluxe. The Voyagers of Starscream, Ironhide and Optimus have clearly different packagings.

    Good point, but i think, that it's just a special package for special version of Bumblebee ;) Like the "Screen Battle" or whatever it was named in the first movie line :P

  18. Avid Singapore Fan1/24/2009 11:58 AM

    Yeah that's what I thought as well. Like snippets of epic scenes in the movie - the ones they had from the first movie.

    One with Scorponok in the desert with the soldiers, one with Longarm carrying Bumblebee... Etc.

    Probably the normal deluxe bumblee is of the same mold as what is shown here, just doesn't come with Sam?

    Starscream looks hot! I think litte extra detailing and changing small prts here and there sufficiently warrant me getting all the old characters!

  21. i don't know, maybe this is one of those screen battles, and this probably is a deluxe bumblebee, but maybe more detailed paint like in "the capture of bumblebee". that one had better paint. anyway, this is pure awsomeness!!!!!!

  22. Avid Singapore fan,

    The new deluxe Bumblebee was leaked here a couple weeks ago, with a new head sculpt and new weapon.

    Here's the page:
    http://transformerslive.blogspot.com/2009/01/tf2-toys-deluxe-bumblebee.html

    Its possible this one with Sam might also be a deluxe, but I doubt they would be making two of the same size, just to transport Sam.

    So it's also possible it might be a voyager. Can't say for sure 100%, only time will tell.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hate to say this, but Starscream looks like a sumo wrestler !

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awww... Sam is riding on Bumblebee's beam cannon. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  25. Even if it is one of those epic scenes i still think that bumblebees box cool. I am totally gonna put theses on my shoppin list!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Psh whatever. Starscream did not look ugly... well ok the toys didn't do him justice but there are improvements at least.

    He has a new head sculpt which looks much more accurate and detailed and his overall appearance is more detailed which is nice. I also think it is neat his tattoos are there from the comic. I'd rather him get some upgrades and tattoos for the new movie then change his design.

    He was also my favorite in the movie. I really loved his design and I hope these toys prove that their movie designs haven't changed. I'll be really happy.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Voyager BB looks great. Unfortunately it seems to have taken a design cue from Ultimate BB. It looks like this new mold doesn't have a right hand. My best guess is that this was done to accommodate the human ally riding gimmick for that arm. Judging by the pictures I'm slightly optimistic that the seat flips down and somehow forms a hand. Regardless, I'm looking forward to this Voyager toy.
    Starscream is a definite improvement. Ironhide and Optimus are slight dissapointments though. I was really hoping for a new redesign for both.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It seems that Hasbro took some fan complaints into effect. First off--StarScream appears to have hands finally & with the weapon detachment feature his robot mode doesn't suffer with the bulky guns on the sides. Second--Iron hide's TopKick mode is better without the cannon underneath the driver side door. I don't care for this Prime as I will be purchasing the Leader-Class. As for the Bumblebee I do agree that it's a Voyager class model. Shia LeBeouf fans will be happy with this Bumblebee & Sam toy idea.

  29. poor Starscream, you are one ugly motherf...

    With looks only a mother could love.

  30. funny funny funny how not one of the released toy boxes reference "the fallen" or anything close to a different enemy than the other side...and to all that think the image on the boxes in the background come even close to the image on the poster need to get their eyes checked....there will be no "the fallen"...sorry to tell u fanboys that but u need to accept that reality...megatron is the one that needs revenge.

  34. guys the bumblebee is a voyager. trust me. i think we have all seen the OFFICIAL deluxe bumblebee. plus deluxe doors cant open that wide and fit something that big in there. think about it

  38. I think the Bumblebee looks a lot like an Alternator. So it's possible he's not a Deluxe, or a Voyager. That could help explain why his size lets the Sam toy sit in the seat.

    ReplyDelete
  39. If Megatron won't appear in movie. Why he appears in background of Bumblebee's package?

    Screamer brings Megs back so that he can thank him and maybe owe him gratitude, but Megs just takes over and screws him over.

  41. Scorp here (Spoilers)

    What the hell happened to starscream in the first film he was atleast slightly good as a toy now theyve made the body too large just to fit in a ****ing rotating gear gymic.

    Optimus (voyager) is a repaint and has nothing good about it. I might buy the leader set because of the dual blade swords which i will cut off and add to the original version which looks better.

    I missed out on bumblee bee the first time and i was going to buy him this time however they have changed the head model so i wont buy him.

    I missed out on ironhide from the first film so i will get this version although they look the same this one is more detailed and i can repaint it to match the original film colors. The gun looks stupid on his roof though!

    I`m begining to lose my trust in bay i thought this would be a good film but with a supposed resurection of megatron by starscream is rediculous.

    The only way that would work is if starscream brings megatron back to deal with the fallen then kills him after or betrays him and leaves him in space ready for unicron to turn him into galvatron in the third.

    It's just Hasbro babling on the back of toy package, it doesn't have to be like that in the movie...

  43. "Transformers: Rise of Unicron sounds like a cool title. Except my biggest fear would be people glancing at it and thinking that it says "UniCORN". Then they would laugh. And my first thought when I read that was "Rise of the Lycans" for some reason.

    I think that they should wait until 2012 to release a third film, so they can spend more time on it and make it right. What are your guys's opinion on my title:
    "Transformers: Our Darkest Hour"?

    okk juz my 2 cents..those title kinda sucked..don't take me the wrong way but.....''Transformers3: Rise of Unicron''? C'mon is that the corniest thing u can come up with?

    Ummm.. Transformers3: Our darkest Hour''..umm deep title..and it's actually a preetty gud one but it i'm juz not gettin it....i get wut it means ..but it's just to deep to actually make sense in the TF-BAy Universe...it's Lyk SAMwise GAndji MAking a Tf movie or Peter JAckson


    p.s. REvenge of the Fallen is a excelent title.....simple....interesting....thougth provoking.....

  47. According to IESB, the Autobots will have their own answer to the evil Devastator in the form of Superion, "the mighty union of the five AERIALBOTS." The five Aerialbots are Silverbolt, Airazor, Fireflight, Skydive, and Air Raid. '

    I picked this lil bit of info off of ign.com I know if it's true or not but IF it is then this movie is going to be so freaking more bad ass then what I thought!!!

  49. The new Leader Prime is incredible. Makes me want to throw the previous one in the trash. Starscream's alt mode looks a little more streamlined. No giant, under-wing arm turrets. Very nice. The new BB is interesting. I'm a little hesitant to pick it up, though, because it seems it's more of a gimmick class than a voyager. Transformation seems cheap, and that nub-seat of a right arm looks stupid.

  52. Too bad you used the bad angled photos of Starscream there. The Also Available picture of him next to Ironhide shows he isn't as wide or as squad in robot mode.

    Starscream is also an all-new toy, not a modification of the old toy.

    I dont know why people are already talking about TF3 when we havent seen ANYTHING from RoF...And Our Darkest Hour is soooo lame...

    And hell no there wont see any Unicron in this movie if there is then that would prob mean it wont be Megatron in the movie but Galvatron...

    Yeah, it's called "speculation" for a reason. It's fun to imagine. That's why I got interested in Transformers in the first place. And what's "lame" is relative.
