    By courtesy of anonymous poster at 2chan.net toy board, here's Buster Optimus Prime product images and some small review. it says:

    Only front grill and roof cover are plated. most of other silvers are painted.
    Color of blue parts are darker than normal ROTF OP.
    No sound & voice are changed. eyes glow too.
    Instruction has photo for easier operation.
    New weapon - Ion Blaster - can hold, but don't fit well, to the left hand.
    Energy Sword is yellowish orange with silver paint. looks gorgeous.
    Last(7th) image is a small custom, BOP with normal OP head.

    BOP's official street date is tomorrow(Nov. 21) in Japan. don't miss out! :)

    Whoah, that's gorgeous! Can't wait for HL to start shipping these babies.
    I love that his swords are actually clear.

    I like the gun, but that's it. I find the use of silver and chrome a bit too much, tbh. The nice dark/medium gray of Hasbro's first release is much better, imo.

    Looks great. Mine will probably stay in the box though seeing as I have zero space to display him. I would like to have him out in his alt mode.

    I'd buy this if it had the face-plate. Two years on, and I still don't like the mouth on Prime. It does look like a nice toy though.

    This guy really is Masterpiece caliber, so I don't mind paying the Masterpiece-figure price. $100 for this figure w/ this level of detail, painting, chrome and engineering is a pretty good deal I think.

    I cannot wait to have him in-hand. Simply awesome.

    Looks good. They even came through with a nicer shade of blue.

    The one thing I don't like is the open faceshield. Maybe it's accurate, but it doesn't look right. I still prefer the faceplate look. And by painting silver above his eyes, makes them look a funny shape. Just triangular slits.

    Just wondering... Being that the bottom of his feet are chromed out what are the odds that'll get scratched up from casual use/transformation?

    I'm flashing back to RiD Scourge and his trailer starting off gorgeous, but after being moved around on a table the sides showing scuff marks.

    It's nice, however it looked nicer in the preview pics on BBTS and Tfsource then it does in real life. I am thinking my Hasbro Prime is just fine. If it doesn't sell out and I have some extra money I will get it.
