    DAMN. The flames are pinstriped and everything. Is there improved head articulation as well?

    That's REAL nice, but due to that whopper import price, I'm good with my normal one.

    Just got my Buster Prime....

    [​IMG]

    I have to say that the ROTF Buster Optimus Prime has my vote for Transformers toy of the year....!!!! Being able to transform the gas tanks into a combined weapon is very ingenious... And not just that, it looks almost 95% screen accurate to the CGI model in the movies.. And obviously, the paint job is so much more better looking than the regular ROTF Leader Prime.. My definite toy of the year...

    Some photos of it in truck mode.... Oh it looks so good....

    The regular Leader Prime looks dull in comparison to Buster Prime..

    Looking good! Takara always does the goodies...give credit to the Japanese. I wonder why hasbro is not a fan of chrome. Now imagine fans project doing a snap-on armor parts on prime to mimic the parts of Jetfire that he used to battle the fallen. I think they are already cooking it (well hoping).

    Because American companies make more $$ when they focus on quantity over quality. Japan is a smaller country, and people there are generally more willing to pay more $$ for a better product, even if it means they can't have as many products.

    Wow, he looks great! But, I'd be a little wary of him standing on that chrome!

    repro labels should really start working on chrome stickers for buster prime's hubcaps, gas tanks, steps and stacks, and some gold detailings for the robot mode. i'll buy those. i like my buster prime to shine like the sun.

    How the weapon transforms and combines still amazes me for some reason... Love the blaster!!! It looks really detailed actually and looks pretty close to the one seen in the movie.... Kudos TakaraTomy!!!

    There are some instances in ROTF that Prime was holding two guns in his hands.. A pity Buster Prime only has one gun.. In the movie, I think each fuel tank is supposed to be a gun.. And I don't think the CGI movie Prime combined his fuel tanks to form a gun unlike the Buster Prime.. Ok so what, now I'm thinking too much :lol :

    A lot of QC issues on Buster Prime. Some came with the left hand half unpainted. I've seen one with a huge paint gash on the cab.

    Anyone done a head swap with a regular Prime yet? I prefer Prime with the mouth-piece and was wondering if the swap job would be simple.
