    You know, in case the new Supreme Prime coming out is a big flop. Should I get ROTF Prime as a sort of 'safety net'?

    I would wait until the end of February. Toy Fair is next month and hpoefully we should hear something about the supreme Prime there/then. Heck I think you will be able to get either a ROTF version with the swords or the one with the battle hooks for some time still. I still see a few ROTF Primes on shelves here or there. Although HTS does have ROTF Prime clearanced to $30.

    The question should be,why don't you already have ROTF Leader Prime?

    Awesome,awesome figure.Easily the best movie Prime figure so far.

    At this stage, probably best to wait and see what's on the horizon. Unless it's going for less than half price or something.

    It is one of those must-have figures, and you should probably pick one up eventually.

    that's what i'm doing... i bought Prime last summer, and just stored him away until i got Jetfire, who i still don't have... so he's still sealed... until i see DOTM Prime... if he's cool, ROTF Prime is going to the Toy for Tots pile...

    Wait till we see pics.

    If you don't like ultimate Optimus prime then get ROTF Leader Prime.

    I'd go for Buster Prime if you can. I don't have him but if I could go back in time, I would have skipped the Hasbro leader version and bought the Buster version. Plus, it doesn't look like Prime will retain his ROTF form in TF3, even if you were to take the space parts off of the voyager he still looks significantly different.

    So for the most accurate version of ROTF Prime, Buster is the way to go. Personally, I think TakaraTomy is going to do the following:
    • Release HFTD Leader Battle Hooks Prime with more paint apps and the buster cannon as Movie MP ROTF Optimus Prime
    • Release Buster Prime from the Jetfire 2 pack with slightly different paint apps from the 2 pack as Movie MP TF1 Optimus Prime

    Leader size doesn't tend to get a lot of reissues into other lines but that could always change. I think you're safe to wait to see if something better comes out but you should decide in the next couple months before the movie comes out.

    Wait until we see the new Supreme Prime. If you care about movie accuracy, and they make any changes to his bot mode, besides the trailer, you'll wanna go with supreme. If they don't however, and you can live without the trailer armor, get the Japanese ROTF Prime, Buster Prime, since he's the best bang for your buck.

    Yeah I also recommend waiting to see what Ultimate Optimus is all about. If you don't like it, go with RoTF Optimus. I don't think its as amazing as everyone else seems to but it's an alright toy.

    I see a ROTF Optimus Prime every time I go to the toy section of the local grocery store (big toy section, too), and I always debate whether or not I should get him. Maybe when we see images of this Ultimate Optimus Prime it'll be the deciding factor for me.
