    If you can. Always.

    It's pretty. I can't afford it.

    I'd say it's the definitive movie Prime. Takara would have to pull some magic out of an ass to top it.

    It's definitely the best Movie Prime up to date, but if the rumor is true, we'll get the same mold retooled for DOTM so waiting a few days/weeks more for pictures may be an option.

    I agree, I have both of the Buster versions and the 2 pack one is the best.

    They might top it... with a bling-bling version of Ultimate Optimus Prime if the rumor is true (retooled ROTF Leader mold + trailer). Fully chromed trailer? :)

    Yes buy it. Its the best toy from any of the movies so far. I am very happy with my one. I waited a long time before getting it too, having the same question.

    I recommend it if you can afford it. I put Buster combined with Jetfire but switched his feet out with the Hasbro release and keep him in truck mode with the chrome grill. Looks sharp.

    Ordered on that should be here next week or so for about $104 shipped on Ebay. Looking forward to it.

    And not to hi-jack the op's thread, but he is approx. 1:32 scale, correct?

    sweet advice dudes yeah I got ROTF Prime when it came out and thought it was the coolest TF ever made. I thought Buster was going to be an exclusive release here in the states. I was toying with the notion to get him but then I saw the news for Ultimate Prime, I guess Ill wait but I hope Ultimate Prime is going to be good:)

    Nah, I wouldn't get him at all. On a side note, I have a Leader TFTM Premium Prime and a regular Leader ROTF Prime to sell you since I have that awful 2-pack Buster Prime taking up my shelf space...
