    hey guys,

    i need a little input. is this guy worth getting? i am on the fence...he looks great...but another optimus leader (i got the regular ROTF leader, amazon black prime leader and buster prime already). The price is kinda ok (i live in germany and i can get it for 218 EUR shipped) and my wife has already signed up on this (whoooo! :) 
    but i just need your opinion

    thanks

    i've been on the fence myself...I love the color scheme on Optimus but that chrome is a dealbreaker.

    I'm not a repaint guy myself so I'd say no but your mileage may vary.

    I'd say it's worth it, but then again I love this mold and bought normal Jetwing and Striker too. The colors on the Prime itself look awesome, and I don't view the chrome guns parts as a bad thing. My one nitpick is that I wish they would've used metallic silver paint for the grill and some of the 'bot parts.

    I kinda wish they had done Striker OP in this colorscheme instead of Jetwing...

    I still want to get the normal color one...but $200 is a lot to spend on a fig I have 2 of and the extra parts to make jetwing.

    So which parts exactly on this thing are chromed?

    Obviously the wings and the big guns. What else?

    The visor flaps look chromed, but I thought I saw an autobot symbol on it.

    I believe the cylinder pieces of his hood that end up on the top of his shoulders in truck mode [...gas tanks? Not the ones that turn into the buster riffle] are chromed as well.

    Looks good. I'm not a niche figure collector but I like Jetwing Prime. This version looks great. Now, if he only did t cost so much...

    I bought this guy on impulse and still don't regret it. In my area a normal Jetwing Prime costs about 230-240. The black and chromish variant? 250. So why not?
