    Why is Optimus' head unpainted? Is this the prototype or the final product?

    Don't like the face

    I prefer the mouth plate face for when I combine him with Jetfire

    This is still a prototype and in large kanji words, it simply says "This is not the final product".

    The unpainted parts are to show what has been changed from the original release. It is quite a common trend when remolded Japanese items are released - they show a painted original with unpainted areas so that the audience can see precisely what has been changed.

    Hey cool!! Now Optimus has both gun and swords! Awesome! :D  I don't really mind the head as long as the paintjob is done right.

    Thanks for posting this Samus! :)

    sigh* They make us purchase the first version of this figure because it is awesome ...
    Then they release another version WITH a gun 6+ months later ...

    It's a marketing strategy, which you should overlook. They make you buy the more ugly version first, then the nicer version comes out. And if you really are a fan, you'd get that same mold again although there's only a slight change, e.g. repaint (Premium for example) or like Buster Optimus here.

    Take Voyager Megs for instance. I'm sure there's gonna be a premium repaint, or at least a better repaint later on. If I'm wrong, then sorry for getting some people's hopes up..

    I was expecting the head to have removable faceplate like Animated Prime. Oh well, I'll still buy it just for the BFG.

    Until it's confirmed that he has the face plate, I'm not bitin'. But I'd dearly love to get my hands on TWO of those completed gun kits. (Though it looks like it's molded to work with just the right hand...)

    If this is a dumb question, my apology. Why "Buster"? I'll wait to see the finished version. I like the the gun.

    they should do something similar to cybertron/ galaxy force optimus prime. the 2 half's of the combat mask/visor/face plate hidden beneath each side of the cheek then it slide in to cover the mouth.

    Maybe because it represents the scene where he 'busts in' to save Sam from Meg's grip.

    If I was going to buy another Prime, the buster is the one I'd go for. But if that is the way he is going to look, I'm going to paint the guns silver and paint the face in silver/yellow/dark blue.
