    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.

    Yeah he's definitely a darker gray and it's a very nice shade. I took a lot of photos at the below link.

    Man those blades look so awsome on him!:D  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!

    ^Haha :lol  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.....:redface2: 

    ^This. Gotta ask Bodhar2000 or somebody in Japan to hook me up with those. :D

    $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.
