Big Bad Toy Store Exclusive Transformers Prime Dark Energon Voyager Optimus Prime

The Dark Energon series of Transformers Prime Deluxe and Voyager toys are exclusive to BigBadToyStore.com in the USA, though they are available at retail in some other countries.  I really hope this will not be the last series of Dark Energon toys.  I would love to see a second series of Deluxe Soundwave, Vehicon, Ratchet, and Arcee, and Voyagers Dreadwing and Bulkhead.

I am far less happy with the Dark Energon voyager toys than I was with the deluxe toys.  Optimus Prime looks great, but they should have made the blue on his legs translucent too.  I get that they can’t make the whole toy translucent, because translucent plastic often breaks more easily, but it seems to me that the blue plastic could have been made translucent without any problem.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
