    This was rumoured back in march last year and its set for release in January 2010 - I have a small pic of it in pack which I'll try and load but from the looks of it the set is a Takara Tomy release and features Jetfire with the Buster Prime Mold minus the gun accessory ( in other words he is all chromed up)

    No price point yet but may have some more info later :) 

    Cheers

    Andy


    More info

    Anyways got more product updates about this

    Release - 1/1/2010

    Jetfire - New Deco :)  Yippee

    Prime - Buster version - no faceplate confirmed wholesaler appears to think its a straight repack.

    We've also got it up for pre-order :) 

    Price point for you USA guys working on what we're being charged and UK import taxes, VAT etc is around $175.


    Mod Edit: Pictures added. One regular size, one blown up.

    So just standard Jetfire with Buster Prime?

    Because a black chrome Jetfire might make me hyperventilate a bit.

    I'll buy this.

    I expect it has to have the gun accessory as the Prime toy would be lacking the fuel canisters without it...

    Well, it could just be Buster Prime with the regular leader Prime non-transforming fuel tanks.

    The package definately says Buster Optimus Prime, but it's also a TakaraTomy release :( 

    Hopefully just a placeholder for a Hasbro release.

    Whoah, cool. Sucks that Optimus apparently doesn't have his gun, though.

    If Prime is without without the gun and just paired with a regular Jetfire, I really don't see the point.

    It definitely says buster Optimus, but the picture next to it is not the same as Buster and Optimus has a faceplate.

    I definitely want Buster Optimus Prime and have thought about getting a second Jetfire for jet mode. I wonder what the price point is? Because Jetfire can be had for $35.00 easy nowadays.

    Are we sure Jetfire didn't get the same treatment as Buster Prime? He looks ALOT different when I compare mine to the picture.

    ...Although it may be the camera, I'm thinking we've got a Premium Jetfire in that box too.

    It is a transparent plastic prime.

    Can we get a Golden prime?

    So, it's basically a Premium RotF Optimus Prime plus Jetfire?

    I'll be honest: with Prime and Jetfire being so cheap at the local Wal-Mart, I've been considering picking a pair up so I can have Prime, Jetfire, and Power Up Prime.

    If they come out with this stateside, I'm sold. My Prime will get powered up, and that Prime will go on the shelf.

    I can't help but wonder if there is some kind of non-disclosure deal between Hasbro and Takara. Like one won't say if they'll put out a certain figure until the other gets to milk it first.

    Otherwise why the hell can't Hasbro tell us if we're getting this version of Prime at all or not? There are no national secrets here we've already seen it, a simple yes or no will do.

    This could be a good thing for me, since I missed out on the first wave of Buster Prime.
