    Awesome review Peaugh. The more I see it, the more I want to buy it. Just bad timing with Botcon, SDCC, and TFCC purchases recently.

    I'm hoping that this will release in the states eventually.

    You... might have mentioned this already and I might have missed it, but those are C-clip bars on his wings, are they?

    edit: forget it, watched the end and you do point it out in the final opinions. Nice to know!

    Was the coin included in the box or separate? Got mine from RK, no coin.

    EDIT: Nevermind, found it separate in the box!

    Just got one question. Did you mod the hip wheels?

    Just to reiterate.

    The coin says Supreme Class because Hasbro Hong Kong are agents for both Takara and Hasbro.

    It doesn't mean anything with regard to a US release.

    The thing I hated the most about the RotF Leader Prime was what a ridiculous amount of force it took to pull the chest panels out of the chestplate. Now that they've remolded that whole chestplate piece, has this bit of idiocy been fixed?

    Dude, no force is required, there's a specific spot where you need to slide the chest pieces to before removing them...

    This. It's really not hard at all to get them in/out.

    I had to carve away a bunch of plastic just to free those pegs because the channels they plug into aren't close to wide enough at any point. Terrible piece of engineering there.

    Maybe yours has some defect? Mine never gave me any problems. I just picked mine up and its pretty easy to manipulate.

    Oh man, that's weird. I've never had an issue with them, over 4 different releases of the mold.

    Carving some release notches at the top makes the whole deal a lot easier, but yeah, it's quite doable without going through that hassle all the same.

    Yup, just slide the piece to the furthest inward point then pull out. Less resistant on the HFTD leader Battle Hooks Prime.

    Definitely looking into getting Jetwings Prime. Looks like a lot of fun and the ROTF Buster Prime is a great base figure to use.
