Boy I'll tell ya, If ever I was going to buy a Movie Verse Optimus, it would be that Striker. but at $130...and you know he's not gonna be that sexy dark grey and silver like the stock photos.
I can assure you, it IS that sexy dark and grey! I was sure that I wouldn't want another DOTM Prime but when I saw it in real life I was sold immediately. It's so much darker then Jetwing Prime.
I've seen few, if any, pictures that accurately portray how good Striker Prime looks in real life.
Yah,the grey is of darker grey for Striker Optimus Prime,maybe that is why it is called "Striker" because of more "striking grey",LOL just kidding
Yeah he's definitely a darker gray and it's a very nice shade. I took a lot of photos at the below link.

Is that Encore Devastator coming stateside at all, anyone know?
No plans as of this moment.
^The pics on Takaratomy's site looks pretty smexy IMHO.
Anyway, it WILL be mine. muahahahaha.
Man those blades look so awsome on him! I really wish they would've included them with the Striker Optimus Prime! It would have improved the figure many times more and actually may have been worth the expensive price tag!
TRU Japan sure know how to make money out of these Blades,LOL
^Haha true. In fact, most Japanese toy manufacturers/ hobby specialists all know the art of making us spend insane amounts of money for very premium and limited releases.....
^This. Gotta ask Bodhar2000 or somebody in Japan to hook me up with those.
I think I missed it ... but how much are the blades?
$49.99 if you preordered them early through BBTS; preordering them now will set you back $59.99.
But if you live in or visit Japan and buy 3,000 Yen or more of Transformers toys at a local Japanese Toys'R'Us like I did when I bought Striker Optimus, these exclusive battle blades are free with your purchase. =)
If you go with the latter, just make sure to ask the sales or stock clerk for it when you check out (I had to point to the sign promoting the blades on the shelf and show them my receipt since my Japanese is pretty horrible; the clerk got them for me from under the customer service counter with no problem).
I go back to Japan next month for the holidays and I want to see if I can get another pair of blades. XD Sadly, these blades are limited to 10,000 pieces so they might be all sold out by then.
My friend will be ther next month too. But I guess they maybe gone. :-(
STOP SHOWING OFF STRIKER PRIME WITH THE AWESOME SWORDS!!! They're an exclusive and they're totally awesome but why does he have them in every damn pic? Some people aren't going to ever see them dammit!
Relax,maybe there will be 3rd party for these Blades,we shall see.
