    Yea I pre ordered this bad boy, but as someone said before that this IS gonna be an expensive quarter. I mean you have this MP 12, MP 13, MP 14, takara version of FOC, the new generations set, the first two bot for the Not Superion, Captimus Prime, Revoltech DX Prime, and Master Arms Optimus Prime. All of those I listed I am getting each of them so that mean this quarter I'm spending almost $600.00 Hopefully my wife wont kill me.
    PS I also preordered Iron Man Mark VII from The Avengers from Hot Toys!

    This is gonna turn a lot of people round.. but like i said before, there's nothing here i don't already have, and like others said, just too much other stuff on the near horizon for me to buy it right now.

    I'm so in with you :lol . The only thing holding me back is the the Japanese set doesn't look bad combined together but I really only do want a nice Buster figure.... decisions, decisions...

    I think people that bought the original Striker will have to agree it does look nice. That Autobot insignia on that shield just pops out. Seriously, if I get this, this'll be my 6th variant of this mould. TAKARA YOUR DRIVIN ME NUTS...in a good way :ev:

    If the colors match on this one and the buster prime I may have to swap some parts out to make a Striker Buster Prime. Only issue is the panels that hold the gas tanks.

    I just need a touch of clarification, does this version also have the gas-tank gun/s? Also, would I be able to attach the Jetwings to it? Thank you in advance! :)

    No. No Prime does.

    The Striker guns can't mount on the Buster gun components.


    Jetwing will attach in alt mode, but not robot........gas tanks are fixed and get in the way.

    ^I think it's the same as the Jetwing Prime, which doesn't have them.

    Thank you! You seem to have experience with this figure. Would I be able to use the shield and swords on the Jetwing version?

    I hate how it doesn't have flip out swords like the regular Leader or Buster version. I wonder if the opening in the arm is still there were the blades from my regular leader can be added in.

    The inevitable black Striker rRepaint you mean? They did it with the original ROTF version, then with the Jetwing version, why not with Striker?

    These pics look nice and I'm glad I've got it preordered, but as others have said, it is quite redundant as a figure. I've already got both versions of Buster plus the original Striker with the real battle blades. Nothing new here.

    This will be my 12th, including a fully chromed custom that I have. :)
