    I voted yes, but really there would be absolutely no point unless they actually follow through and do all the paint aps properly.

    I actually prefer the traditional head (and got the chinese version for this reason). The gun is nice, but the real reason to get this toy IS the improved paint job. The other differences just aren't that big.

    It would be very nice is Hasbro or takara pull out all the stops and do Starscream that nicely as well (although I doubt they will). Starscream looks to be just about as nice a sculpt/mold as ROTF Prime, it will be a real shame when his paint aps lag so far behind.

    I went with 'maybe', since I personally wouldn't buy it but know others would want it. I already have regular ol' ROTF Prime, and wouldn't shell out for another leader just to get shiny paint and a gun. Some people might, but I have no desire. I have the same opinion with the Battle Hooks Prime. That's just lazy retooling with a splotch of battle damage. At least 'Nightwatch' OP had a different paint scheme.

    You good sir are seeping with love for your fellow Transformers fan. :D 


    I voted yes. I'm not entirely sure I'd buy it myself, but I know it would be bought, and I think it's lame as hell Hasbro hasn't released a faceplate-less Movie Prime to date.

    Though I probably wouldn't pick it up, I voted yes, because I'm sure dozens of fans would, especially if they missed out on the first release.

    No matter how many fans would by this if Hasbro released Buster Prime, it would be a commercial failure like Battle Hook Prime will soon be. The movie popularity has died down, the holidays are over and most people are cutting back on spending, it would be a hard sell for parents to buy the same mold with minor differences. A straight up repaint is a more cost efficient release.

    It's a more detailed version of Leader Prime. I don't see why anyone would say no.

    I don't see why not.

    Also, are people trolling the poll by voting "No" and "Who Cares" ?

    All depends on the cost. I wouldn't pay more than regular leader class price since I got the original. Plus there is not enough differences for me to buy it and have two. I don't want to see another repaint "wasted". I would rather have an Ultra Magnus repaint or something. But I guarantee I'm definetly in the minority.

    Yes. Get rid of the awful battle-hooks Prime and give us Buster Prime.

    I voted yes, eventhough I already have the Japanese one. Why not? It's gorgeous.

    It's not just the chrome that makes it different though. It has a much better paint job and paint detailing.
