    Does anyone have the Japanese ROTF leader class Optimus Prime?

    Through strange means I wont go into I may be getting one somehow and i'm curious about him.Whats he like compared to the U.S. version?

    I dont know much about any of the Japanese movie toys actually and I can't help but wonder about theyr quality compared to the U.S stuff.

    Usually the Japanese stuff is better.

    The Japan release only says "Optimus Prime" and NOT "I am Optimus Prime."

    Also, the plastic below his head & neck (his upper INNER chest) is gray instead of red.

    That's it for differences as far as I know.

    Now the Japan-only Buster Optimus Prime is a whole 'nother beast...

    Do any of the differences affect his look in a negative way or something?

    The color changes for instance,are they weird?

    I just saw some pics of both toys and screen caps for the movie and it looks good.

    The japanese versions alternate color under the neck is actually more movie accurate.

    Neat.The strangeness gets better.
