    I'd buy him open face, not liking the current head mold much; Nightwatch and open face together for the awesome win!

    Takara released a Prime with no mouth plate, tranformable gun, accurate flame decals, and silver bot parts; Buster Prime. I'm hoping Hasbro uses this mold for a premium Leader Prime, but it probably won't happen.

    You want a Prime with a mouth? Well atleast movie Prime's face kinda looks like Peter Cullen which is cool

    I'd be willing to pay $60 but not $100+ they want for Japanese Buster

    They haven't confirmed anything yet, but I bet we'll see the tooling in some way/shape/form eventually. Maybe not with the exact Buster paint job though.

    I hope so..I was looking forward to Takara's Buster Prime, but they went mad with the paintjob. Way too shiny, and the way they painted the eyes is just..ugh.

    For once, I hope Hasbro will release a version that's less shiny...yay for less paint apps...:p :p

    The thing that bothers me, even if Hasbro decides to do a Premium version of Optimus Prime it's not gonna look anything near as sick as Takara's version of Buster Optimus Prime.

    Nothing has been confirmed, but if it does come over, I probably won't get it (unless it looks like Buster OP).

    Seeing how the last Prine was retooled for a premium edition, it could happen.
