I would love to hear some comments about the combined mode. IS it really worth the $400?
You can't combine them directly, from what I'm hearing. Sounds like the jetpack attaches to the rails from the removable Buster Optimus Prime gas tanks, whereas Striker has the non-removable tanks from the original Leader Optimus.
Meanwhile, I think those static gas-tanks were remolded a bit for Striker for the guns to slot into.
The colours between the two releases don't match exactly (with Striker's colours being noticeably darker), so parts-swapping might not look so great.
But aren't the Jetwing Optimus Prime & Striker Optimus Prime is of the same mold
As I said, not quite.
Jetwing relies on the one part that the two don't share, that being the guns (or rather, the gun-mounts) used previously on Buster Optimus Prime.
Here is BraveMax's combined mode
There's a little bit of a switcheroo going on there.
Vehicle mode is Striker with the jetpack equipped.
Robot mode is Jetwing Optimus holding the Striker weapons.
Notice that Striker is a darker, duller red and blue, whereas Jetwing has the typical brighter colours of the mold.
