    Done a quick bit of fact checking and I think these may be new toys, they're not the power bots, prices don't match. Theyre not the leaders either, the Megs is going for voyager money and this jet power Prime is the same price as a single leader.

    So, they can only be either redeco's/slight remoulds of the existing voyager versions of both figures or something new.

    Even in the redeco/remould case, what have they added to Voyager Prime that's boosted the price by 3k...

    Finally there's the codes, these guys both have new codes that put mark them out as different from the rest of the ROTF line and they're associated with each other/being released at the same time.

    Clearly something of interest here. ;)

    Hmm, is it too much to hope for a more movie-accurate and better moulded Jet Prime?

    They wouldn't be Power Bots by any chance?

    I hope not, I couldn't stop myself, the cogs are whirring away... :lol 

    I forget how much they are but I'm pretty sure the Megs and JP Prime power bots were the same price.

    Edit: Ah no, there was a difference in price between them but not as large as this one. It could be the power bots but I'm willing to bet against it. ;)

    Power Bots have already been released in Japan via Tomy Direct.

    Tomy Direct basically means "straight import of the Hasbro toy with zero differences" as far as I know. Like, it's possible for the regular TakaraTomy movie toys to have plastic color changes and stuff as compared to the Hasbro versions, wheras toys like Ultimate Bumblebee, the Robot Replicas or the Power Bots ARE the Hasbro toys.

    Jet Powered Prime was used to describe the Buster Prime & Jetfire two pack, so perhaps it is that version in the two pack despite being cheaper than the original Buster but the same price as the normal Leader.
