    After seeing the new images, it looks like the buster gun is exclusive to Takara while Hasbro gets the hooks.

    The hooks are cool. The random black airbrushing is not.

    Hasbro's probably saving the Ion Blaster to use it as a selling point for TF3 Prime.

    Imma be honest here.

    Only thing I like are the hooks. The rest is pretty crappy, IMHO.

    Prime doesn't look to be all that damaged. I like the Leader Starscream.

    I might have to wait until they release a non-tattooed version of leader SS. IT looks like a great mold, but something about all those markings is turning me off.

    I'm very happy I haven't bought Prime now. I've wanted one with hooks since I saw ROTF.

    Do not like the battle damage paint work. Leader Starscream will be mine, though.

    Dang. I limited myself to 11 formers this year and can only get 5 formers and i still dont have HA Barricade,Legends Devastator,HA Mudflap, Skystalker, HA Jazz, Leader Screamer, Leader Fishing Optimus, Bruticus, Superion, Thrust, and Seaspray. That's 11 more transformers i want. Dang you hasbro for making awesome toys this year but still im getting Leader Class Screamer no matter what stands in my way. :ev:

    ok looking prime almost want to buy it but the black pianit on his face & everything else big turn off hooks like but wont be buy it.

    they better keep this guy in bot mode in truck mode no one can tell if is sword prime or hook prime it looks hasbro has trouble transforming leader prime as well theres a big gap in his truck mode.

    prime ok black on his body in bot will not buy loks bad, starscream looks but his legs look short than his voyager version

    now we just need leader class Grindor with Peelable face. But I guess if you were to go to scale he would have to be a supreme.

    its nice that Hasbro is making a reason to get this, and making it different then Buster Prime. While the random black splotches (I'm sorry, battle damage) look awful, its a Hasbro paint job, I don't hold high standards. The hooks are pretty cool, although I think they were about half the size

    The hooks look awesome, especially since they're jointed, and so does the facesculpt.

    The Battle Damage, however, look incomplete. Not saying they're bad, because they look good as scorchmarks, but with JUST this scorchmarks on it, it feels incomplete. I guess it's the best they can do while being cost effective.
