    Probably not, honestly. I'm becoming seriously tempted by Striker Optimus, so if I *DO* end up getting yet another version of the Leader Prime mold, it'll be that one.

    striker prime's stealth force alt mode + jetpack = most epic thing evar

    i do not regret owning two leader primes thats for sure [i almost wish i had another one :p  lol. well another jetpack. if i had to have another figure itd probably be the HFTD one with the battle damage paint, mouth, and hooks xD]

    Yo, what's with the chrome?

    Looks...well indulgent really. Has no place in my collection and the price tag is excessive. Still, for those who have everything I suppose...

    The chrome guns are nice, but the rest of the figure looks like Bob Ross threw up on him.

    Mine's on its way from RK. I backed out of buying Striker for this, black Primes are more my thing anyway.

    This is exactly why Hasbro will not release this version of Optimus Prime in the USA. Making it exclusive also keeps the price high. It is very interesting that it does no have the faceplate. It guess it makes it look more evil.

    (Black redeco whore that I am looks down with sad face.)

    Just kidding, I know it's not for everyone...but I couldn't resist. Mine just shipped from RK, and I'll have Striker Prime coming from BBTS by next week too. I love the RotF Leader Prime mold so much (first ballot HoF toy, if a toy wing existed in the HoF) that I own every version except the Battle Hooks and Buster two-pack version.

    I'd bite and get this if it didn't have that awful chrome and it had a faceplate. Otherwise it looks gorgeous!

    That is all sorts of sexy. Sexy enough to stare at for hours, but not quite sexy enough to pay for it.

    DAT CHROME!

    Whoa, crazy looking. I kind of like it although I wish they hadn't painted the Autobot symbol over the chrome. That's going to make it impossible to remove.
