    The DVD exclusive (but only if we discover that Hasbro will not be importing a similar deco >.>). If we are getting that deco then totally go for MP-01b.

    Black Leader OP.
    2nd place goes to Buster OP.
    MP-01B isn't all that special, IMO.

    Do you have any version of Masterpiece Prime yet? And the American Leader OP? If no to the first question and yes to the second, definitely MP-01B. If yes to both, still probably MP-01B because there will be an eventual repaint of the American ROTF Prime into one or both of those and it won't cost way too much.

    1) Black Prime (nothing beats a badass black colored Prime).
    2) Buster Prime (Oh, lordy, the paint scheme)
    3) MP-01 (He's awesome to)

    I love the look of Buster Prime and he is by far my most anticipated figure of this year. The paint detail and extra accessories simply can't be beaten. Although I gotta admit that your thread made me realize that I am getting all 3. Damn thats a lot of money on Primes...

    Maybe wait and see if Hasbro does a Premium ROTF Optimus? It's probably only a few months away.

    I forgot that MP-01b will not be available till late Feb/early March of next year. I should have no problem getting that at that time. I guess it will narrow it down to either Buster or Black Prime. Now I'm really on the fence between the two.

    All of them. But, I guess in this order:

    1) MP-01B - Masterpiece is awesome & in Black?! Fo' get about it...
    2) Amazon Black Leader ROTF Prime - I want this baaaad.
    3) Buster Prime - Want this, but waiting for Hasbro to release something similar.

    In that case, I would go with Buster Prime because I am fairly certain Hasbro will come out with a Nightwatch version of Prime before a Premium version. Also, the Buster Prime comes with a cool gun, great detailing, and doesn't cost nearly as much.
