    I have the Buster version from the DOTM two-pack with Jetfire. I'm thinking of getting the Amazon Jetwing to put on Buster. How compatible are they? I saw someone say that they're not. But then I see this...

    So can it be done without modding/retooling? Thanks in advance for the help, guys. :)

    If memory serves, there was some additional remolding done to the buster prime mold (specifically on the back) for the Jetpack to connect. That being said, it is possible to put the jet pack on the normal buster prime release, it's just as secure.

    There was a thread about this when Jetwing Prime first came out.

    Thanks guys. I went ahead and bought a Nightwatch Jetwing OP. Totally worth it, in my opinion: this is the definitive movie OP version that I was looking for.

    Now to find buyers for my Jetfire and Black OP (who look good together, based on one pic that I've seen; I'm not too keen on keeping them, though.

    I bought it from a store that's 30 minutes away. :p  I love Hong Kong :D 

    I don't think I'll sell these after all... Now I think I like Black OP + Jetfire more than the chromy Buster Jetwing Prime.

    Ugh, I would kill for a Jetwing. It's a shame that they're on clearance in the parts of the world they're in, but shipping costs would be ridiculous to ship to America...

    The normal Takara Jetwing is getting a bit cheaper, but the Nightwatch Jetwing actually got more expensive by around 12 USD since my last visit to the store. I think the Amazon Jetwing is good value for money, but I really wanted the chrome wings...

    Did you look at the Amazon.com one? It's a great deal even if the Jetpack colors are a bit weird.

    Yeah, I saw it, but the paint choices throw me off. I'd rather the plain silver or chrome wings. I haven't customized any of my stuff yet either, and I'd rather not have my first attempt be a $100 figure lol.

    Ugh, rub it in, why don't you?
