    I don't really have any version of the ROTF Optimus Prime mold so I might go for Striker Optimus Prime if I can't afford Jetwing Optimus Prime.I also love that Takara made swords for Striker Prime seeing that both this mold and Jetwing Prime lack any swords!

    Seems the retail version of Striker Prime won't have the silver paint seen on the stock photos.

    Is the licence plate on TakTom's HA Soundwave slightly different? I don't recall seeing SUPERIOR spelled out in full on the piece Hasbro displayed at SDCC and NYCC.

    EDIT: Just checked. The piece Hasbro displayed had SUPERIOR in quotation marks. TakTom's version (based on the scans) doesn't have quotation marks.

    Does Striker Ops have no electronics at all?

    I wish Optimus didn't have that the Autobot symbol on his window cover. But oh well, I'll give. I still need those swords though.

    Ruined forever really? It's just a little miscoloring it happens often that's all.

    Maybe you can consider the reissue Buster OP &Jetfire gitset since you don't have ROTF Prime

    Is this the first time they've given G1 Devastator black forearms?

    The Constructicons are so overdone now it's difficult to care anymore.

    Was kinda hoping for some tampo'd details on the constructicons. At least the Decepticon sigils.. Also, weird that he still retains those orange triggers on his forearms. Might not be the final version methinks.

    If it is, the missing tampographs, red eyes and purple drum are definitely a missed opportunity.

    Striker's still looking good, Leadfoot is still comical though.
