YouTube - Transformers ROTF Buster Optimus Prime!
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?
Yeah, I submitted the thread early. Video is working now.
I like the paint and chrome but those swords kill it for me
, no he doesn't remember. this is BUSTER prime, not OPTIMUS prime,
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.
peaugh you didn't slide out the blue pieces on the back of his lower legs.
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.
its nice but 60 extra bucks for a new paint job and gun is pricey but you know ill end up getting him lol. nice review
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.
On the Christmas list!
Though, dude, you f*cking scared me dragging him around on you desk like that.
and at last i will have this .. still on board .. with price below 90 dollar
great review.. still.. I'll pass this one, though the price tag is about $80 in my country.. I'm pretty happy with the original version
He looks awesome but i would not buy him as i have the original ,i just wish i could get the gun separatly ,as that is really the only significant difference.
yeah, i would say stuff about how this one is not really worth it if i had already bought the wack one too.
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!
