    Can only do one right now? Which would you choose? Seems like all three are awesome, but I can't see owning all 3. Talk about some cash dropped. Striker is tempting because its the cheapest, busters got the hype, jetwing is massive. Opinions

    I can't recommend Striker highly enough. His color scheme is gorgeous, his "third mode" and his weapon add mounds of playability. He's also very accurate to DotM.

    I understand why Jetwing Prime is so popular, but that accessory is just...unwieldy looking to me. As for Buster...he's certainly beautiful, so much so I can't imagine picking him up and messing with him. Also, he still has those annoying hair-trigger blades.

    Jetwing. Best TF in my collection. Robot mode is just imposing, and vehicle mode is ridiculously awesome.

    another vote for striker (although i did order the buster 2 pack recently)

    i dont know how you display yours or if you even do but i have seen how huge jetwing is and if you better have a shelf for just him

    mine is displayed among his fellow movie characters (ironhide and HA's) so i dont have room for him

    and the deco on striker is just great, its a fantastic comprimise between high quality paint apps and just plane casting, but the darker colors really make it an awesome version of the mold

    get striker you wont be dissapointed

    Jetwing, he's the most accurate one to DOTM consdering the jetpack which IS awsome.

    all 3!

    buster has the best alt mode look, while jetwing has the backpack/back assembly you want [and the head with faceplate], and striker for moar weapons!

    This thread sounds so familiar to an earlier one. I'd go buster prime all the time. Unless you want to play with it which i'd recommend jetwing cuz i like guns. I even reviewed Buster on my blog

    Striker. I'd fear wrecking buster, and Jetwing goes to all that effort of having the jetpack nd isn't even accurate. Those guns, ugh...

    Jetwing for me, though the only one I own is BustaPrimes and he is awesome. Jetwing just looks so impressive in person. Can't really say that you could go wrong with any of them, and I would eventually like all three in the display, but that ain't happening unless there is a big discount, or they get a domestic release.

    Buster. Faceplate buster if you can swing it. For the price it was getting unopened, last I looked, you
    could get the set with Jetfire.

    As much as I like the other two it seems tidier more comrplete than the others.

    I also think its appreciating faster than the other two.

    Buster.

    It's the best paint job ever on the greatest mold ever.

    The other two Primes might have more play value, but IMO staring and drooling is where it's at.

    It's not. Jetting is like the hasbro rotf leader prime with new abs and jet pack. It doesn't have buster's paint apps

    Uh really? Jetwing may have the new abs molded in, but the paint job is as dull as the regular RotF Prime. Buster's gloriously detailed and shiny colours make all other TFs look about as exciting as a loaf of bread.
