Jetwing Optimus Prime Detailed Images
Hmm, this thing has quite more remolding than I initially thought!
Courage of 8 and Skill of 7 my arse
If they'd done it as a Buster, I might have considered, but this is a step backwards. I'm way more interested in the dual model kit version of the new prime design.
Buster like with regards to paint? I ask because the mold is a retooled Buster Prime save for paint and swords.
I was pissed this didn't have as much paint at 1st, and while that's still disappointing I dig that some of the parts use a different shade of gray. I want this thing but will wait to see if TakaraTomy ends up repainting it or something, and I also want to see what DA28 looks like.
Just give me the jet parts to add on to my ROTF leader Optimus. Hmm wonder if the jetwings would fit on the duel model kit Optimus.
Will this one be in the actual movie?
Yeah, it's in the trailers man. Towards the end of the Superbowl trailer you can see Prime with jetwings flying into battle, transforming, then cutting someone in half.
I'm torn about this release. It seems to be the best Optimus Prime item coming out for the DOTM line. (That can transform ) I really want this figure but the huge price and the fact that it has to be imported which will add to the already large cost makes me nervous. I'm already on a tight budget for figures and even more things are coming out later this year (MP-10, TFPrime toys, the Laser Prime add-on, etc.) I'm currently saving for Ultimate Prime, (depending on how good it actually is) and if I can only get that I will probably be just as happy.
For such a premium price and a shitty paint or lack thereof.... Easy pass until they they get their heads out of their asses!!
Thanks so much for the fantastic pix..and lots of them too!! One of my faves.....with the left cannon in the foreground..a nice touch--all you needed was the "shell" ejecting like the movie preview!
Is it true that there will not be a US release of this?
Ah, it's Overcompensationus Prime. XD Not my cup of tea but still neat though.
Not bloody likely. Completely outside of the usual price points.
Maybe eventually, as some sort of exclusive. But I wouldn't hold your breath for it.
yea the US never gets the good stuff, we just get butterfly prime and nightmaremoon prime
Would certainly be helpful if North American retailers were more supportive of stuff like this.
But they're not, so what can you do?
LOOKing good! i take back everything bad i ever said bout it! lol
U.S. release isn't impossible...but i really doubt it will be this side of Xmas, it would undermine Ultimate Prime.
Those of you in 'Hasbro never gives us anything' mode might want to reconsider how collector friendly Takara have really been the last few years.
With regards to dotm and optimus, it's 2 for 2 so far, 1st they have the trailer and gun-sword, now they've got Jetwing Optimus.
