    Sweet!

    I would feel pretty bad about buying the regular Buster Prime, but I'm really fond of the faceplate-less face. Other than that..CURSE YOU TAKARAAAAAAAAA

    Minor differences then, interesting. I think I prefer the Buster Prime though, the face and white pinstriping just appeal to me more.

    I might just get this for another Prime and Jetfire to have combined, as I never like buying the same thing twice :D

    That is tempting to purchase. However, I would stick to buying the original Buster Prime. Now if they came out with a Buster Jetfire, and did that in a two-pack . . .

    Are those 2 close up images showing QC problems like with the sloppy silver paint apps on the tool box/ leg and mold warping/degradation on the truck roof/chest panels?

    That is weird...I like it though, as it would seem to increase articulation.

    Can we do that with our Jetfires or is that special to that release?

    I'm kinda confused. It says the pic on the right is the 2-pack version which shows the open faceplate head (shows mouth) but I thought the original Buster Prime has the open faceplate.

    Yeah can we do that with the US release of Jetfire, if so I am going to have to buy it...This combined form of Prime and JF is by far superior to what I have seen.....

    I like the white striping but I like the faceplate more. So faceplate wins. Did they take Jetfire apart to get that configuration?

    That's what it looks like. Looking at my Jetfire here, there's a small seam near the top of the thigh that looks like where that figure's legs detached, but I can't get mine to come off and I don't want to accidentally break the figure so I'm afraid to apply too much force...can anyone confirm that this is possible on a stock US Jetfire?

    I like the white pinstripe, but I love primes faceplate, and that jetfire repaint is sweet, oh well it's not like I could afford it anyways. Sigh

    Confirmed. it is possible, BUT there is no release for Jetfire's thigh. I had to take out the screw that holds it in place. Since it is spring loaded there be careful not to lose the spring when you take it out. It actually looks like it may have been an idea at 1 time, as there are 2 plastic outcroppings that line up with slots in that section of thigh. If the lip from the lower leg that goes inside the thigh was shaved off, those outcroppings may hold it in place and allow you to just turn the leg to line up the slots for removal/reattachment. I'm not brave enough to butcher a leader class toy at the moment however to find out.

    looks nice, however I like the white pinstripe and the faceplateless head better. It's the only movie Prime to have a mouth, which is why I want it.

    nice comparison... just feeds my opinion just to get the Buster Prime and change the faces... buster prime looks great with a optimus head with faceplate on his mouth.. =D and i got plenty of regular ROTF primes to spare

    Yeah, that Jetfire combination is definitely a case of some heavy fan-mode grade parts forming.

    Does this version of Busta Prime still have the chrome? I can't quite tell.

    Thanks for the info, I'll give it a shot (the taking out the screw part, not the shaving off the lip part).
