    Time for another "Who stands who falls" question!

    Which Buster is the better one? As far as I know the only differences are the face mask on the 2-pack version while the RA-24 Buster Prime has the bare face. Also the pinstriping is light blue for the 2-pack version while it is white for the RA-24 Buster Prime. Another minor difference would be the darker gun's tip for the 2-pack version.

    Did I forget other aspects that are different?

    At this point I am totally undecided because I prefer the face mask of the 2-pack version (although the bare face of the RA-24 Buster is more detailed due to the sculpted face) while I prefer the white pinstriping of the RA-24 Buster because it adds for a nice contrast while the 2-pack's light-blue pinstriping next to the dark blue has not much contrast.

    I would like to know what you think is the best Buster version?

    You got all the differences. I like the 2 Pack better because I prefer the mask.

    I saw one comparison-pic (I guess you remember those comparison pics from ACToys, it was one of those pics) where you can clearly see a more accurate paint job on one specific area of the regular RA-24 version of Buster. The 2-pack's painting in that area was clearly "overlapping". Can anyone confirm that the regular RA-24 Buster's painting is more accurate or is it exactly the same quality level as the 2-pack's painting level?

    the loose one I got has a facemask....I also have a Jetfire 2-pack with box but no buster-2-pack!
    Than I got a Jetfire MISB (I still need to unpack) eventually I would want a loose buster-2-pack as well so then would love display combined + seperate (bot or alt)

    It's exactly the same except the pin striping and the tip of the gun.

    Have the regular Buster and he's awesome. Only reason I would like the 2pk version is for the faceplate and for that bad-ass Jetfire.

    I like Buster Prime, the only Prime without the face plate is unique. My regular ROTF Prime is good enough for a masked Prime and cheaper!
