For $90 just to see the 2pack released for $109??? I am. Now I have to buy yet another Prime.
Why would you buy the 2-pack? Nothing overly special in it, except the paint job on Jetfire, which isn't that great.
I'm actually not happy I bought the first edition Prime and Jetfire. For $25 more, I could have now gotten the better Prime and Jetfire together.
No. I have no interest in the 2 pack.
Nope. And I will buy the 2 pack. I love the mold and I want to get the different variations of it. From what I'm told the single pack is still on the shelves in Japan, but thats all the stores are getting. That version is discontinued, making it more unique.
My original intent with the buster prime was to leave it MISB, but after a week I could not resist and opened it. It took 10 flips of a coin, and belive it or not heads came up 8x. Then friday I get clear pics of the 2-pack that have a repainted buster and repainted jetfire, and only for $20 more. That set is perfect for opening and displaying in the combined mode. So I am just more pissed I opened the original Buster Prime.
You could always repack it and still display it. But I understand that it won't be MISB. But thanks for the idea. Since I haven't got around in opening my Buster Prime. I will keep that MISB for display and open up the 2 pack. 2 pack Prime will be for playing and 2 pack Jetfire will go to Black Prime that I got a few days ago.
Where is it on sale for 109?
Thats the other killer. I know the black Prime is going to be like super expensive from a collectors standpoint, so I know I don't want to open that one until I oreder a second. Then I still might hesitate.
I'm not, as Takara has given me a perfect version with an exposed face and another perfect version with the faceplate (also there is the new Jetfire).
I'm glad we got both.
No, because I didn't buy it for 90. And I love the faceplate-less Prime.
If any "premium" version comes out in the US, I would think itd most likely be the 2 pack.
That's a valid point right there.
I don't want buster prime, just his gun and I'm not spending 90 just for that.
It will be most unlikely. The 2 pack is to similar to the ones that is out right now. They already sold tons of both figures this year. In a marketing standpoint, it will be a hard for Hasbro to convince the general toy consumer to buy something that is almost identical to the ones they already have. Especially after the holidays. I said this many times, it is most likely that Hasbro will most likely release a black prime over a buster Prime in the future. A black Buster Prime would be awesome.
I don't really care. The two Primes seem different enough for me to be happy.
No, I waited for the jetfire/buster set....
Kinda since I kinda want the faceplate for Prime but I'm still keeping the single Buster Prime and not picking up the two pack. Not interested in Jetfire, he's an awful toy so I dont care about him.
RobotKingdom. Granted, it'll probably cost you $20 to ship, but you're still gonna be $40+ ahead of the game.
I'd probably be all over these if I didn't already have the domestic releases...while these are much nicer looking (at least Prime is,) I just don't think I have a strong enough need for another set, especially for another $130 or so. I think that kind of cash would probably be better served going toward something altogether new, or at the very least, a more substantial repaint.
Not that mad. I like the Buster in the box, and I have no plans taking it out of the box. The regular Jetfire is good enough for me.
