    Awesome. If we could just get any of this stuff in the states, I'd be happy.

    I guess we can write off the Buster gun now?



    Hands up who's still waiting for a U.S. release of Buster Prime?

    That is awesome! Even better, he does not have an Autobot symbol on his window cover thing! I can't wait to get this! So I am guessing he can't wear Jetwing's jetpack?

    Yup. It's interesting that he'll still combine with Jetfire. The guy taking pictures knows how to sell a figure. The melee faceoff with Sentinel is just too much. How can they not sell this stuff separately?!?!?!??!


    I've lost all sensation in my hands for waiting for so long.

    I'm actually very excited about this guy. He will be the 7th version of this mold that I own and with the new pieces, he will still be fairly unique. I may actually even display him in stealth mode, it looks that cool.

    I'm really thinking of picking this guy up if I can't get the Jetwing Prime! And the combined accessorys of both molds is crazy!!! Why did'nt Hasbro at least release this guy in the USA?! It would have made up for not having a new Leader class mold for him!

    You should totally sell off that 2nd version of Buster Prime to make room for this one. I just happen to be looking for one. Lucky you!

    I wish to announce that I am VERY EXCITED, guys.

    Shame about no Buster gun, but the gun he does have is very cleverly designed. I like that he can pack two shorter guns or one long (more accurate) gun, just as in DotM.

    If only his hands could hold 5mm...

    Well, those holes in his wrists are 5mm/MechTech, right?

    The DotM line is pretty much done. It's already got three Leader Class figures to its name, which is about average.

    On the other hand, we'll see what happens when the line gets rebranded to "Transformers: Trilogy" (or something along those lines) next year.

    If they released this to the states, I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

    Wow. He looks real nice.

    If Hasbro were releasing this. I'd buy this. It's not worth the Takara price for me though,

    That truck mode looks pretty badass with the new shield attachment and the Jetwing parts.

    Yeah, so he can do "attached" guns. And I'll have good fun with that (Backfire, Lunarfire OP's gun). But I was REALLY hoping he could hold Fireburst OP's axe without modding!

    If the mold does get a USA release in the Movie Trilogy toyline that'll make up for it then. I wonder if the blades that are going to be exclusives to the Striker Prime are going to sell at places like Amazon?

    Hand raised. I think it looks great, but unless it was at a Leader class retail price I can happily skip. Can't justify that much cash on toys.
    Glad to see they went with a nice dark grey instead of a gaudy silver.

    If there is a a decent price tag on this then sure easy buy, but considering what Jetwing prime goes for over here sheesh! HA figures go into the $90 range AT RETAIL at TRU so Im not holding my breath for anything short of the 120-150 reatail price
