    says that video not yet processed. Look forward to the review though as I won't be spending 3x leader price now (35) to own one of these beauties.

    Spectacular. Think you'll show a small and short video, showing what Buster Prime looks like as JetPrime?

    I'd love to own this guy, but he's definitely out of my price range. I have actually come to prefer movie Prime without the faceplate, and I really like the gun. I still don't care for the chrome, and the fact that it's on the feet means that if I do get it, I'll have to stand him on a cloth.

    No offense at all, but that really isn't true. I have the Takara Premium Prime from the first movie and there isn't a scratch on his chrome anywhere (and there is a lot of chrome, including on his feet). I store him on a glass shelf in a display case and mess around w/ him every once in awhile and I have never had any problems. Quite a few people on this board and others that own that Prime have stated that they don't have problems w/ the chrome either. My point is, please don't let that dissuade you from buying this Prime. I can assure you that scratching of the chrome is only a minor concern for anyone that takes care of their figures (especially the $100 ones, as you would expect).

    Anyway, excellent review Peaugh. I really can't wait to get my hands on Buster Prime. He is the most anticipated figure of the entire year for me.

    That is pretty neat. I didn't know that Prime's legs did that, but sure enough, you can pull those out and they will lock out very securely. They look to give Prime's calves a little more definition.

    Learn something new every day. Thanks.

    Yeah, I realized after the fact, but it wasn't worth a reshoot. Most people know about it, and I wanted to focus on what was new about the figure so I didn't worry about it.

    Great review man.

    I'm debating which to get w/ Christmas and birthday money. Should I get Buster Prime or Walmart MP Starscream?

    as far as the toys go, they're pretty much the same quality. whichever character you like more i guess, but MP SW is going to come in cheaper.

    quality review as always, and i also took a mean-spirited delight seeing peaugh struggling to transform the thing, i was genuinely starting to suspect i had big stupid retard hands given the struggle rotf prime puts up when being transformed! i was however very disappointed you didn't demonstrate the alt-mode's ability to roll on the table - the public needs to know! ;)
