    No pics yet but this is a Japan exclusive due July, the figure is leader class and thats all we know apart from the fact the socitation is accompanied by the image of prime wearing his Jetfire armor.

    Hopefully this will be an updated version of Unite for the Universe Prime which would go some way to explaining why Prime is wearing what looks like the Jetfire parts in the new trailer.

    Price is around 12000 yen.

    Ah. Maybe that's where all the engineering for the Ultimate Prime went.

    Probably a ROTF Leader mold with the jetpack and the guns from DOTM second teaser.

    Please Takara, let it be WAY better than the Ultimate Prime we just saw.

    Wow, that's almost Masterpiece money right there, it had better be good. Edit: £90 to be more precise.

    Is This definitely not going to be released by Hasbro? Could be a Leader class Op with mechtech backpack.

    Hmmm... It sounds good, but after the hilarious disappointment of Ultimate Prime and trailer, I'm not getting my hopes up for any DotM figures any more.

    ...Okay, if done right this will definitely make up for Ultimate Prime. Hope we'll see some pics soon, and hopefully it'll come with a kickass premium paintjob!

    The price suggests it's not the Unite for the Universe Voyager+jet bits - could it be Buster Prime with upsized UU-01 parts?

    I haven't ever purchased a Prime toy. Or an Autobot from the Live-action franchise. I only have one autobot, that I actually bought accidentally on eBay (LONG story). But this....this might be the one. RotF Prime and Jetfire combo was just too much for me....but why 12000 yen? Someone said this was at like, 85 pounds? What does 12000 yen translate into dollars..?
