    All we know is that Japan is getting Buster Prime.

    We don't know if Hasbro are going to release him eventually. They haven't officially confirmed him, but they haven't explicitly said they don't intend to release him either.

    So the answer is... we don't know.

    Damnit! I can't believe we're not getting Buster Prime! Americans always get screwed!

    Um, now could someone tell me what a Buster Prime is?

    Edit: Ah, a ROTF toy. That explains why I didn't know or care.

    For some reason, his face strikes me as an angry Asian guy. o_O 

    But, omg, that is the most perfect Movie Prime to date. Love the gun. Love the pinstriping. Love the silver. :drool:

    I'm thinking that if they do bring it over to the north american market, they'll wait and release it in 2011 for the TF3 line.

    That's just my thought anyway. I could be completely wrong.

    Questions aren't news.

    At least one Hasbro issued repaint of this mold is inevitable... although not necessarily imminent.

    Whether or not the new gun and face make a Hasbro release remains to be seen.. For many the new gun would be a significant inducement to buy the mold again.

    If the new tooling is released by Hasbro, there's some possibility that it will be with a major repaint.

    Either way, the chrome detailing is fairly unlikely to make the cut.

    In one of the site's SDCC panel coverage I'm fairly certain Hasbro said they had no plans to release Buster Prime stateside.

    We'll see if that changes though =P

    as cool at is i cannot justify the extra costs involved to get Leader class prime with some extra paint apps and a gun that said if i find one for way cheap id be all over that bad boy but given what its likely to cost which is at least double the price of a leader class figure its too much
