    which one do you guys plan on picking up? jetwing looks awesome and so much more movie accurate and the remolded ROTF leader mold rocks!! but the not so movie accurate powered up prime but the nice alt mode with the trailer?? decisions decisions..:confused:

    Jetwing Optimus is 100$ overpriced for me to consider getting. If you are already have ROTF Optimus your just paying for 3 Big pieces of barley painted plastic that do little. Optimus cant even do much with them in posing because of the weight of them.

    Ultimate is at least a new mold with a nice robot mode and great Alt with his own giant cannon. It's gonna end up with lots of sales and clearance prices eventually also.
    Those Add-on pieces with no electronics or such to them just are to overpriced.

    Trailer vs No-Trailer, the choice is obvious.

    I want both, but to be fair, I will have to go with the trailer.

    I can't see the point in buying ANOTHER ROTF Optimus mold (though it's brilliant), even if it does come with some oversized random flying accessory thing. The ultimate version is at least a bit refreshing with the whole 'big Prime' design...plus it'll be on clearance soon enough! :p

    I'm going to get Ultimate.....just because of the awesome SDCC packaging. Really can't justify the money to buy both.

    I'm leaning towards Ultimate Prime, but will most likely be getting both.

    ultimate is much more cost effective and more different from ROTF combined Prime. If Jetwing is released state side I might think about it.

    Jetwing.

    The only thing about Ultimate that could have been good (IMO) is the truck mode with trailer but the trailer is too short, too wide, too dull looking... I picked up Voyager Prime with trailer to display in vehicle mode instead.

    Ultimate Optimus. I already have ROTF mold, I don't want another that is really overpriced. Ultimate looks great, and looks fun too!

    That's my rationale as well.

    Ultimate Prime: 79.99, new mold.
    Jetwing Prime: Retooled mold, 174 + shipping.

    So in essence I am paying 95$ + shipping more, for a mold I already own + parts.

    Still probably getting Jetwing partially because all of you always gushed about how awesome that Prime is.

    I've never really been a fan of the whole trailer thing, so I'd go with Jetwing Optimus Prime.

    If I can manage to get one I'm gonna buy the SDCC exclusive Ultimate.

    I think I'm just going to wait it out - either Jetwing Prime will finally get a US release, or Ultimate OP will be on clearance.

    Prefer the Ulimate with Trailer myself. Only way I would get Jetwing would be at sale price.

    If price wasnt a factor, I would go with Jetwing. I don't display too much in vehicle mode, and I think his bot mode with the guns on each arm look better than Ultimate Prime. Like others though, I just can't justify paying that price for a few pieces and a retool of ROTF Prime, so Ultimate Prime it is, with hopes and prayers that Hasbro releases a version of Jetwing in the next couple years.

    I might just wind up getting both, to be honest. :(
