    If i remember correctly:


    1) The Jetwing doesn't fit the original Leader Prime mold in robot mode since the Torso is different.

    2) It doesn't fit Striker Prime unless the fuel tanks are removed.

    So unless they've retooled it, or you already have a Jetwing Prime (or modified Striker) to put this on, it's redundant.

    Cool idea but CHMS will find a way to screw it up. You're either gonna have to mod it, make some kind of repair, or deal with chrome that's either scratched, easily flaked, or both. Or maybe the chrome will turn green like it did on my CHMS black chrome seeker.

    Proceed with caution.

    The Jetwing parts do work on the original, albeit with tabs meant to go in non-existent slots. But it does mount. I have that combination set up right now.

    BTW I'm not trying to discourage anybody from getting this, I just think we need to be prepared for some kind of glitch with it. I love the concept and who knows, after the practice they've had with other products this might be the one where they just nail it perfectly.

    Unless you take the fuel tanks off still not going to fit a standard rotf prime, I think.
